Uhhh...I think someone wants to meet you.[:D] WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A few thousand black demonstrators rallied on the Mall in Washington on Saturday to demand that the U.S. government pay blacks reparations for slavery and decades of discrimination. [b]"I want to go up to the closest white person and say, 'You can't understand this, it's a black thing,' and then slap him, just for my mental health," Charles Barron, a member of the New York City Council, told the crowd.[/b] The demonstrators, numbering about 2,000 to 3,000, came from all parts of the United States, many traveling by bus from as far away as Texas. With the U.S. Capitol in the background, they chanted "Black power! Reparations!" and "Start the Revolution!" "Apologize White America," said a sign carried by one demonstrator. Barron, a self-proclaimed "elected revolutionary," said if the government did not act swiftly he personally would storm the Treasury Department ( news - web sites) and take the money for reparations. Black activist Louis Farrakhan told the crowd, "America owes the black people a lot for what they've endured." "We need land for political independence, we need millions of acres," Farrakhan added. "We need payment for 310 years of slavery, of destruction of our minds and the robbery of our culture." Soooooo..you talkin' to me? [b][blue]NAKED[/blue][/b]

Lemme axe you somethin'..want so mo? .S. Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat from Michigan, urged blacks to press their elected representatives in Congress to deal with the issue of slavery reparations. "We want reparations -- not next century, not 10 years from now, but now," Conyers said. "These wrongs can only be corrected in the House of Representatives, only Congress can do what we want now. All congressmen ought to be here today." Conyers has backed legislation that would require the House of Representatives to study slavery's effects on blacks. Demonstrators said blacks deserved "long overdue" reparations, noting compensation won by Jews in the aftermath of the Nazi Holocaust and Japanese-Americans for their internment by the United States in camps during World War II. The turnout was smaller than the tens of thousands of demonstrators forecast by organizers of the "Millions for Reparations" movement. But those who traveled to Washington said they believed the rally would make a difference. "You have to really make some noise just to be heard," Edna Russell, who traveled from Denver, told Reuters. Kobina Abew, an American citizen from Ghana dressed in a colorful African gown, said, "It's going to be very effective. It's going to bring a solution to this problem, I believe." This could be interesting, [b][blue]NAKED[/blue][/b]

RIGHT! Fat fucking chance that the liberal media or any other band of Democraps is going to condemn or even report honestly on these [B]ASS-CLOWNS[/b] in any manner but to give them support! The liberals LOVE class warfare and sucking up to these people. Remember when Calipso Louie Farrakhan's fav number one lieutenant made all those incredibly racist and anti-Semitic remarks a couple of years ago? Well, first we see all of the rest of their brothers in the street saying, "...RIGHT ON!!!", then we see the press just going all gaga about it! Liberals want to perpetuate this shit in order to keep the black man down, poor, on the government dole and away from their toney apartments in NYC and their liberal ranchhouse estates on the Left Coast. Reparations? NO. IBTL.

If they want reparations, give them a one-way ticket to Africa. Let these (insert rude remark here), go back to the sh!t-hole they consider to be their "Mother Land"! As was said earlier, I can prove, that both set's of my Great-Grandparent, immigrated to the U.S., back in the 1890's in one case and the other case in the 1900's. So if I have to help pay restoration to these worthless/lazy/SOB's will that give my Great-Great-Great-Grandchildren the right to reperations for what the government took from me? Probably not, I'm white! [:(!]

The oft quoted "40 acres and a mule" story was attributed to LTG W.T. Sherman, who did not have the authority to promise squat. The blood of 200,000 soldiers was ostensibly paid to ensure the end of slavery. What is the value of that? No slaveholder is alive today to be held accountable for his (then legal under the State and Federal Constitutions) actions. 99.9% of the American taxpayers have no former slaveholding ancestors. The difference with the interred Japanese-Americans and Jewish POWs is that the reparations were paid directly to the victims. I am all for paying the reparations from any slaveholder who violated a law to any living former slave who wishes to be compensated. Finally, WTF is the deal with the man from Ghana getting in on this? Does he feel that he is as entitled to this handout because of the color of his skin?

I think we should pay all the people who want reparations. We can apply the reparation money to the bill that the Northern States will send for freeing their ancestors. How does ten million to each family that lost an ancestor in the War Against States’ Rights sound to y’all? We can play this both ways. IBTL

I'll paraphrase what he said: ---We will have to have someone put my bill,HR40 in words that Bush could understand. ---Bush stole the election. ---Bush has never earned one cent, all his life. ---We as Africans....bla,.....bla....bla. (I thought we were all AMERICANS!!!!!) ---Everyone else got reparations. WE should too. I just want to say, if you consider yourself something other than American-American, and not happy, then get the %$^^ out! I don't give a rats A$$ what your skin color is, just be an AMERICAN!!!!! not Greek-American, Native-American, British-American, Peruvian-American, Mexican-American, OR African-American ....AMERICAN,AMERICAN,AMERICAN!!!!!!

Thank you SSD. The 14th Amendment:

[s]I have a solution. Send them back. It seems some people forget that it was black Africans who sold them, and a white American who freed them. Pathetic. Maybe they feel they would've been better off in an uncivilized disease ridden country. Maybe they should start working towards an actual future instead of concentrating so much on their misguided impression of what the past was. But then they'd have to work, and couldn't get something for nothing.[/s] Nevermind.
