Not only should American blacks not receive reparations, but they should be grateful that their descendants were slaves, because Africa is a hellhole. Seriously.
For the sake of argument we will assume all blacks here are descendants of slaves. That means Barack Obama, a black man, holds the highest job in the land. His brother lives in poverty in Africa and his Aunt is an illegal immigrant from Africa. Would Obama have been better off if his lineage had stayed in Africa? The US would be better off but would Obama?
The same is true for ALL blacks living here. Even the poorest of the poor have it better than the people living in Africa. Those in Africa are in absolute poverty with kids dying of malnutrition, people dying of AIDS and malaria and on top of that they have to worry about fighting among tribes. Where in America does anyone, black or otherwise, have it that bad?
Classic wingnut behavior: Cite what you think is the worst of what a place you’ve never actually seen has to offer, then claim that no one here has it that bad–ergo, a neat moral justification for slavery. That is just some dangerous stupidity. The sad aspect is that Big Dog believes he is being perfectly logical. Stupid people are wont to engage in such chicanery.
