How can we make sure that the reparations are paid back only descendants of slaveowners? Also, are the payments to be made to African Americans who can trace their lineage to the pre-civil war south? I'm not sure how a person whose folks came here later, or whose folks never lived down South would be owed much of anything.
Plus, my sister-in-law married a boy that's half-black (Halfrican). Does he get a half-payment and her kids get a quarter? These are the kinds of things that need to be answered.
If you ask me, Reparations have been getting paid on the first of the month for many, many years and that tab ought to be pretty well squared. It also hasn't helped a bit.. Just like the EIC payments they pass out in tax season..... folks would blow through it and nothing would change.
The reality is, this referendum talk is just that, talk. Ask yourself, why now? Why start something so divisive? Could it be to many have left the Plantation? To many blacks are starting to see what the Dem Party has done to them, and what the Republican Party has done for them.
We need to listen to Ron Paul. Follow the founders, don't police the world, practice national defense not international offense. We've been talking about war with Iran all the way back to 2007 when Ron was embarrassing Duncan Hunter in a Republican presidential debate talking about how its just war propaganda and how we are fretting day and night over a country that doesn't even have an air force.
