Russell Simmons, a wealthy hip-hop music executive, is marketing the reparations gospel to black youths under the modernized demand for "40 acres and a Bentley."

How bouts "40 acorns and a boot up yer greedy ass!" Didn't he get rich off of black folks paying to see black comedians? I'm sure the guy is rich already. Greedy, just plain 'ol greedy.

Russell Simmons didn't get rich, he got very rich, off white kids paying to see/listento black musicians. Edited to add the phrase "musician" here is used a little loosely.

Fine, 40 acres and a Bentley for everyone who want to claim it. Then can we put this all behind us? Btw, the 40 acre parcels are located in the Atlantic ocean and Bentley's don't float.

Why don't they go seek reparations from their african "brothas and sistas" who sold them into slavery to begin with. The only catch is you must be present to win, er....collect. Then we just deny these idiots re-entry into the country. Never happen, but it's an idea.
Link Posted: 8/15/2002 10:20:28 AM EDT
1. Since slavery happened 150 to 300 years ago, we can assume that there is no statute of limitations on reparations. 2. We can also assume that the reparations are going to the descendents of those who were slaves since it is likely that anyone who was a slave is now deceased. 3. Using the same logic, the reparations will be paid by the descendents of those who owned the slaves. Therefore, the African-Americans owe the Jews reparations for enslaving them thousands of years ago. [:)] Me, I’m second generation American, I don’t owe nuthin’ ta nobody.

It may be irritating and almost laughable at this point but take a look at Zimbabwe. Do you think it CAN'T happen here? I firmly believe this will be the next American civil war. These types will drive this nation to destruction. They would rather destroy that which they seek to attain for free.

If there were any slaves ALIVE today that were affected, I could understand. But there aren't, and I refuse to line the pockets of someone who just wants a freebee.

In the late 1870s My great-great-grandfather came here form Norway. He became a pawn of a heartless and cruel Government-Corporate conspiracy to settle extra railroad land, and snookered into moving to North Dakota. North Dakota! Who wants to live there?

It is only fair that the descendants of (a) people who were not here in the United States during the period of slavery or (b) the descendants of people who fought to end slavery should be exempted from paying a skin color tax. I came here in 1970. Am I exempt?

An interesting thing about the "40 acres and a mule" demand(forgive me if this is already public knowledge), it was actually an experiment started by General Sherman after the civil war, to see if freed slaves could become productive members of society. It was not an official policy, and it didn't apply to all freedmen, just hand-picked groups. It pisses me off to see vocalist demanding their 40 acres and a mule, it just shows what dumbasses they really are.

I've got some slavik blood in me. That's where the term 'Slave' comes from. So I should be able to get reparations not only for my ancestors who were slaves, but for copyright infringment from those whose ancestors were 'slaves' but not slavik! Woohoo!

As it seems; the ones that bitch the loudest are the same who contribute the least. That being said, if there will be another American civil war (If the past (L.A.) serves as any idicator)... those folks will burn their own neighborhoods to the ground before the oppposing side can even get close.

Here's an idea: In return for some of the Black's ancestors being enslaved, they get to live in America, the greatest country in the world, and quite possibly the greatest country in the history of the world. Where in Africa could they find one tenth of the opportunity that exists in virtually every American city today? Of course, if some of them have failed to take advantage of that opportunity, that's not my problem. Oh yeah, and I'm Jewish, so don't even get me started on who would owe us reperations...
Link Posted: 8/15/2002 5:01:13 PM EDT
Lets check this out closely...... If you are a Black person and your ancestors were some of the 50,000 Black Confederate soldiers do you pay reparations or get them? If you are a Black person and your ancestors were some of the several hundred free Blacks who owned slaves do you pay reparations or get them? I would gladly pay reparations to any African providing part of the payment was a one way ticket back to their beloved homeland.

Natural selection will take place in Zimbabwe, absent intervention by compassionate westerners intent on saving people from themselves. Only time will tell whether similar self destructive irrationality will take hold here, but I'm sad to say I wouldn't bet against it at this stage.

To make things more interesting: What about all the white slaves? (yes, there were in fact white slaves early on in colonial times) What about the blacks who themselves owned slaves? This could actually be funny! Send a Federal agent to some black guys door in an apartment complex, knock, and say, at oligitory gun point of course, give us $500. Then, as the guy is watching, go and give it to the black guy living right next door and tell him records indicate that his great great great great great great grandfather was owned by the other guys great great great great great grandfather. What about conducting a poll and asking "if you had a choice of your ancestors never having been brought over as slaves, which would mean you would be living right now in Africa, and living in the United States right now, which would you choose?

Some of my relatives fought in the Civil War. All on the Union side. Those who were so inhumanely treated in Andersonville are due payments!! Send your checks now. Yea, makes a lot of sense! The decent Black folks will suffer for this just like they do for some of the other shit flowing from the likes of Jesse Jackass, Sharptan and that puke traitor Farakhan. Too bad, they have done nothing to deserve it. How are they going to collect from the other tribes that sold them to the slave traders? Will a person who is half white and half black pay, collect or break even? Will those accepting payment renounce their citizenship and return to Africa? Ha!

Ok, lets look at this another way: A black that was entitled to the 40 acres and a mule would have died and his offspring would have inherited the land. After the inheritance were diluted throughout the last 100 years, what would have been left for modern day blacks? Looks to me like it would have been 2 square feet and a muleburger to me! I want my Norwegitalian reparations! The white man has held me down long enough, I need a freebee! Ya'll a bunch of cracka ass crackas!
