Ta-Nehisi Coates Discusses White Supremacy And 'The Case For Reparations'

Ta-Nehisi Coates Discusses White Supremacy And 'The Case For Reparations'

Commented May 25, 2014 at 15:06:42 in Black Voices

“Bam,
Quote: Blacks are the only people that was force support America."
You are twisting truth here in support of an ideal that is beneficial to your (whatever) agenda, it appears. Doing so is misleading, is somewhat factually ignorant, and fuels further racial problems, and separation in support of the 'Gimme' attitudes prevalant in minority circles today.
The facts ARE, the Irish (among other white ethnicity's) were also indentured as slave labor, and as such, were treated even more cruelly by their masters than were most African slaves. The reason behind this? The Irish, per se, were plentiful, already here, and much cheaper to obtain then black slaves, and therefore considered to be more dispensable.
Do you ever hear of an Irishman crying about their lot? NO, and you never will. By not playing the crybaby blame game, this part of history has been obscured from most of Americans awareness. We just considered this as part of life, and we moved on to make our own future destiny, win or lose.
Instead of asking reparations from innocent bystanders, with MAN pride we give thanks to whatever benefits we are endowed with NOW, and special thanks in memory of what our ancestors were able to contribute to allow us all whatever freedoms we posess today.”

“Naw! It was Soros the avowed socialist that has YOU convinced that it'a all America's fault. Touche'!
What vested interests would make the Koch bro's enter this, unless your comment was just another drowning effort to slander the ONLY party who is working earnestly to salvage the mess the democrat free spendrs have left us with?
How (if even partially true) do you really believe that we alone can make a dent in fixing a world problem that is still being arbitratred by some of the worlds greatest experts... many, (a majority of) of whom also deny human fault?
An earlier poster mentioned the drought in Texas. Ok? The same, or worse, happened in Oklahoma around the time of our last BIG depression. What did they do? They moved West, and after mother nature settled down, those who were displaced either returned home and learned responsible food growing techniques, or stayed after having found a better life where they had migrated to.
I am amazed often of how habitual, and rigid our countrymen have become, and their fear for thier own survival, but it's remotely understandable after US ALL having been coddled by Big Brother and the holding company for the last six, or seven decades.
It seems we need to man up, regain our pioneer spirit in this, and in many other things, and be carefull about being led off course by speculative theorists...Mainly follow the money trail back to it's source.”

Janice Hahn Walks Out Of Event After James Dobson Calls Obama The 'Abortion President'

“Nothing about abortion? You ever read the 10 Commandments?
What about, "Thou shalt not kill", for one, and then, "Thou shalt not bear false witness" as another, which you may have abused here. In this scenario, you don't have, nor display credentials, or proof, as to what depicts a life, but just offer up a random opinion to make talking points, right? Please don't twist the meaning of the Bible to suit your own agendas.
Going by those LAWS (not suggestions) purportedly burned in stone, the only thing even remotely associated to what you claim as being about the poor, is to 'love thy neighbor as you love yourself.'. Jesus was more generous, but MY bet His generousity was geared more to the followers, then ...laggards, and/or deny'ers of the living gospel.
Unfortunately for the world, one great division we have is between the 'givers', and 'takers', and the selfish thought patterns some greedily assume as being their just due, while denying another...either materially, or in an opportunity for life itself, with abortion as the result.”

“Yes, the Commandments. "Bear false witness"? That is exactly what Dobson did.
YOU bet Jesus was more generous to the followers that the 'laggards'? He washed the feet of a prostitute and said to treat others as you would have them treat you.
The GOP like to think of themselves as the 'givers', but then, decides that the 'takers' don't deserve anything from them.”

“The mere fact that Jesus Christ has been the Christian model for over 2000 years surely IS strong evidence that He was, and IS a historical figure..
Take caution, friend. When you boast about "killing yourself" with what you percieve as wisened humor, might just not be exclusively all about this temporal life you have here today..”

“Our Holy Bible instructs Christians to shun athiests, and evil doer's.
Now, I'm not sure that you fall into these categories, or not, but IF you do, how would it feel to be cut off from about 68% of your fellow countrymen?
Better question yet.. how would you like to be stuck in the company of only the other 32%?”

Did you know btw, that Lahaina translated from Hawaiian means..."scorching hot sun"... Not at all what we expected....
Did you keep going back thru the tears Rob ???
Nice hearing from you... I wouldn't typically end with 'Malama Pono' unless I'm talking about a Hawaiian based thread, but something intuitively led me to add it to the sign-off with you... and now I'll thank you for the affirmation on that intuitive notion, and wish you 'A Hui Hou' ... UnkDaKine”

“Mathew.. Without clinical proof of your generalized psychological evaluation, all you have presented is an opinion, and opinions are mere invalid (or valid) assumptions presented to persuade others to side with your personal logic. I'm sure we have all heard the old story about 'assumptions', so I'll leave that one aside
I DO have to stop and consider why you would put resposable gun owners all in the same straight jacket scenario, as those bad ones who appear to be the REAL ones with mental issues, though.”

Wish there were more news broadcasters like Fox. then I wouldn't have to spend so much of my time reading other 'factual' news letters. Perhaps I'd have more leisure time to sit here driking koolaide, or munching sheep fodder with all those glassy eyed 53 percenters.”
