From the New York Times:

‘Reparations Happy Hour’ Invites White People to Pay for Drinks

By Daniel Victor
May 26, 2018

In Portland, Ore., organizers of the “Reparations Happy Hour” invited black, brown and indigenous people to a bar and handed them $10 bills as they arrived, a small but symbolic gift mostly funded by white people who were asked not to attend.

Brown Hope, a local activist organization, wanted the event, which was held on Monday, to be a space for people of color in a mostly white city to meet one another, discuss policy issues and plan potential action.

While it was far from the full-scale reparations sought by some as penance for the horrors of slavery and continuing racial injustice, Cameron Whitten, the 27-year-old activist who organized the event, said there was one similarity: It made attendees feel as if their pain were valued and understood.

Doesn’t it work better when the reparations instead consist of the historically oppressed group being given a monopoly on the business opportunity to sell a vice to white people rather than white people subsidizing a vice for nonwhites?

Letting American Indians own casinos seems wiser than, say, white people giving Indians free firewater as reparations.

Thus, the Sailer-Nixon Slavery Reparations Plan of letting African-Americans have a monopoly on weed dealing would seem like a better concept than this Portland Plan of white people giving black people free substances to abuse.

After all, if these small businessmen get too high on their own supply to open their shops on time, well, no harm done …

  3. LOL, firewater.

    The weed reparations idea just isn’t workable though. The whole point of weed which many generic hippies could tell you is it’s extraordinarily easy for any rando to grow and likewise use anywhere, anytime. It’s the Stallmanesque software dream version of psychoactive drugs. That also contributes of course to prohibition being ridiculously ineffective and destructive.

    Yes, but if blacks were given a monopoly on both sale and enforcement, no old hippies would chance the drive-by.

    Weed for personal use is easy to grow. But growing and distributing weed to make a good living requires a lot of mechanical and electrical skills to keep the machinery going. Plus the ability to read the manuals about the fertilizers and minerals used.

    It’s very entrepreneurial and hard work

  4. Since it’s Memorial Day weekend, all those reparations screaming idiots can go to Gettysburg and look at the graves there. Anything we owed them was paid in full by their blood, along with the 300,000 other white soldiers in United States uniforms who died in the Civil War.

    I'd be fine with a one way cruise back to Africa for reparations.
    , @Achmed E. Newman
    AGREED!

    Reparations is just the right thing to do.

    Since the essential claim is that their ancestors were brought here as slaves--against their will--the reasonable reparations program would fix this, right this wrong, and give blacks an opportunity to renounce life in the US and return to Africa with our thanks, appreciation and compensation.

    I believe departing compensation along the lines of $50000 is reasonable. While it is not the kind of money that say Jared Kushner or Ivanka Trump inherit, it is more than the median white person receives in free capital from their ancestors, and it is orders of magnitude more than the typical black in Africa inherits--the state they would be in but for slavery.

    However,
    1) This would not be "one drop", but pro-rata based on percentage of sub-saharan DNA (no credit for your white ancestors). So a pretty much all black black would be eligible for the whole $50,000, a Melissa Harris Perry type, much, much less.

    2) The full $50,000 would be for "fertility" age black adults and requires the repariation of all their children as well. An older black could still receive the $50,000, but only on condition that all his or her living descendants had also taken the offer and were being (or had been) repatriated to Africa. (Families would have an incentive to return together.) Blacks leaving descendants behind are not eligible for reparations. However, they are free to repatriate to Africa on a repatriation cruise or flight and recieve the net present value of their social security and medicare contributions. (As are all blacks repatriating.)

    3) Convicted black felons--who have stated by their behavior, that the reject the norms of this society-- would face mandatory repatriation, but their compensation payment would be subject to claims for victim compensation. (Payments would be made to any African nation willing to accept them, to facilitate their reintegration.)


    Note, since it makes no sense to import more sub-Saharan DNA, which could immediately--and unjustifiably--turn around and get a reparations claim, or have a descendant get one generations later--any reparations program would require an immediate end to African immigration, which would have the benefit of protecting Africans from living in a racist country like the US. Since that might be seen as "unfair" or even "racist", the best policy would simply be an immigration moratorium so that no people of any race are subject to the structural racism of the United States.


    I believe this type of program is fair minded and healing. It addresses the legacy of slavery and gives black Americans the opportunity to essentially "reverse" that terrible chapter for themselves and their descendants bringing them back to Africa with the financial compensation necessary to successfully reintegrate themselves into their ancestral homeland. In addition it replaces the human capital taken from Africa and brings African nations an influx of both skills and capital to enhance development. And American blacks choosing to turn down this generous compensation and remain in the US, would be making a statement that they are--of their own free will--here in this nation, and believe it to be a better deal for themselves than if their ancestors had remained unenslaved in Africa.

    Win, win, win. I hope all Americans will embrace this policy of reparations and thus put the sorry chapter of slavery behind us as a nation.

    , @Anon
    I agree.

    It’s a holiday celebrating the deaths 750,000 young White men in the prime of life and about 50, 000 White and black southern and border state civilians who died from the collateral effects of malnutrition, disease and other effects of war.

    If anyone owes “reparations” to anybody it’s descendants of slaves who didn’t pony up the cost of manumission. Slavery was legal all over the planet until evil white racist bigots abolished it. Instead of gratitude all they get is scorn these days. As the saying goes no good deed goes unpunished.

    I have an even better idea.

    The next time the Fed has to do QE (which isn’t far off), give the money as a cash payout exclusively to black people (>50% black ancestry needed. No one-drop rule).

    There are, say, 20 million black adults in the US (they have to have been born here, no black immigrants). So $1 Trillion of QE is a $50,000 payout to each black adult.

    Since the last few QEs have been a weird practice of buying just US Treasuries and MBSs, resulting in the gains concentrating exclusively to the topmost members of a few sectors of the economy, this instead gets the reparations meme put to bed, plus will lead to far more diffuse circulation.

    Most blacks will just waste all the money of course. Then, it will simply accrue to the people who are good at accumulating money anyway. The blacks will just be a pass-through entity, but then the reparations whining ends once and for all.

    The banks would break the country up via proxies long long before QE goes to anybody other than the 1%.....that includes reparations payments....most of them you could give a million bucks and it wouldn't be enough.

    Western black POC (people of complaint) contributed watermelanin, peanut butter, and fried chicken to American culture.

    White POA (people of accomplishment), no the other hand, actually built the USA, from its founding documents to iPhones to infinity and beyond.

    Blacks, as the first humans evolving in Africa, created slavery…along with rape, torture, war, and cannibalism (but, tellingly, not the wheel). So blame THEM for all current world problems!

    Africans Owe White's for the huge mess Detroit has become. I recall in 1963 at age 10 yrs old, hearing all my elders and parents etc complain of a new agenda colored folks were demanding.

    After whites spent 300+ years building and making Detroit into the greatest manufacturing city, with worlds highest wages and benefits for a blue color work man, and into what came to be called The Motor City....Detroit all a sudden had coloreds demanding that "All we be axin fo iz dat chanze ta proobs it!....We needs ta proobs dat we colored kinz run Detroit as goodt or betta den dem whitey crackas folk....But....All we axin for is dat chanze ta proobs it an we kant do it wit out white votes heps me because we colored is da minority votes an all and sheeetz."

    Indeed...At age 10 yrs old I wasn't to savy on political issues...Nor issues regards those colored folks other than warnings of how violent they can be...it all changed when first the first african family bought a house for sale a couple blocks down My street....I noticed it on my walk to grade school one spring morning.....Soon it was summer vacation, and hoards of coloreds demanding their big chance to proobs they kin runs Detroit as good or betta den da whites does...

    Well being Detroiters were mainly lib dems, most voices I heard kept claiming or saying. Stuff like:

    "Well maybe if we just give the coloreds what they demand, allow coloreds to take over Detroit's city hall, Mayors job, City Council members, Have a colored police chief, fireman chief, control school board etc et al....Then maybe, Finally, them colored folks will just stop demanding and leave us Whites alone finally!"

    Riiiiggghhhtttt!.....Even at age 10 yrs old then I sensed something rotten in that plan eh. Especially after I saw first hand how from late spring early summer that first ever african savage family moved into a house down the street and on my same street....And I saw how quickly, by summers end and return to school in Fall time...That was all it took for that colored family to fully wreck and ruin that house, its front and back yard, and mainly cause 98% of white homes to get a For Sale sign upon front lawn and whitey flight began in earnest.

    Yes indeed all dey axin fo is dat chance ta proobs coloreds kin run Detroit eben betta den white crackas ebber did!...

    Not only did they ruin and wreck a vibrant wonderfull white neighborhood and within two years time occupy Every house on that street, My street, but also every street east-west-north or south of it....And did it all in Two years flat....So wrecked and ruined when after we moved, I rode my Schwinn Bicycle back there to see what it now looked like, and verify if those older people were correct on extreme ruinations caused by african hoards etc.....Yes they were correct all right...In just two years time I barely was able to recognize my Own street!

    But wait!...I gets even worse yet!...Not only can African hoards fully wreck a street of well kept beautiful homes, homes kept so nice for generations of whites....But when it came to Detroit.

    I call it "Ground Zero" same as a Nuke blast zone center blast area is called...Ground Zero-Detroit.

    First major white city, and best and famous globally as the Motor City Manufacture Capitol of world.

    And once them colored convinced white folk to gibs them da chance ta proobs dey kin run Detroit even better than whites did.....All it took was FIVE short years from Coloreds took over with african mayor and all city positions in civil city wide government etc. For colored control of Detroit to.

    RIOT! LOOT! And Burn Half the city Down!....Plus do a lot of various other typical colored folk related violence and murders and rape of whites.

    Yes indeed eh...Boy colored folks back in 1963 to 1968 era really Proved how swell Detroit can be run if Only we whiteys gibs dat chanze ta proobs it because its "All we Axin Fo is da chance ta proobs it is all...."

    And once they wrecked Detroit ground zero, they was off to the races eh....in another 10-20 yrs time coloreds ruined and wrecked and rioted in just about Every Major or large city Nationwide.

    And NO stupid monkey baboonery minded crapola will ever convince me different since I was born and raised in ground zero of, coloreds led by jewdeo-lib-dems as their pet wrecking crew of savage animals.


    I also hitched a car ride from an older pal with a car to the very Heart and Center of Rioting and Lootings during their huge riot back then....We drove as far downtown on Grand River Ave. Down to right across street from Red Wings Hockey teams, Olympia stadium.....Then a fully armed National Guardsman and a few local Detroit cops with him stopped our vehicle, and told the four of us kids we had no choice but to "Leave and head Back ASAP Fast, for the crazed rioter negroes were so out of hand and no good way to regain control by cops or nat guard troops, that they could Not protect us at all and if we valued our lives and car to get the fuck out Now!"


    What a sight to behold eh....Crazed hopped up, doped up savage animals running wild stealing every possible thing not nailed down....our car on way down and on return ride back, had to several times stop in middle of Grand River ave, a very wide 6 or was it an 8 lane road...Due to being unable to drive further until several sets of two colored guys struggling to take stolen huge refridg's across all 6-8 lanes of road and blocking traffic doing so!


    I am 100% certain by that experience as well as another 35 years after of life in Detroit areas....Till Moved 200 Miles North of Detroit in 1995, that nothing can ever be worse of a Curse upon whites than African savages....Other than jewry that is...jewry=#1 curse & African savages=#2 curse.


    What took over 300 years of hard work to build and make what began as a French Fort on the Detroit River banks....Into THE Motor City Detroit. World Famous with peoples coming from every corner of the globe just to See it first hand and in person after hearing so much of its greatness etc...


    Only took them savages 5 years from "Gibs us da chance ta proobs it iz all we be axin fo" into Looted-Burned half down, Wrecked and Ruined forever Detroit...Ground Zero for New dem colored agendas.....Mixed with LBJ's greater Gen welfare, and was it Jimmy Carters? Affirmative Action aka Reverse Racism against Whites.....And total city wide Colored folks inhabiting Every possible political office, and thru AA policy colored folk replaced a full Third of prior white factory workermen…..In all Big Three car makers and another 40,000+ Mid to small size factories and industries Tied to big three car co's as suppliers etc.....Soon most every negroe had a good pay and bennies Job thru AA policy...


    And soon after, americans began buying Jap made cars thanks to, with an affirmative action worker force of a full Third new black hires....That do piss poor lack of quality work, care Not because if any factory foreman or supervisor dared complain of poor work produced by an African worker?....He was fast called a Raaayyysssis! and Fired!


    So thanks to AA jobs and piss poor quality in former great built vehicles....Folks bought Jap cars and helped finalize the wrecking ruination of coloreds fantasy agenda of run Detroit better!


    Today Entire, or close to it, America is a wasteland infiltrated by too many savages to count and as bad as Detroit was then....America today is 50 times worse yet.


    Cannot wait to see how worse yet it gets due to all them illeagles and the now "Browning" of usa eh.


    Oh well as long as they leave us that still reside in good white zones or areas alone...I can live out my life from here on without ever a return to Detroit or ANY large monkey run city if necessary.


    I do not think the ongoing melt down can go so much longer as is with the center still holding though....No..I doubt if I live another 25 or so years if lucky enough to live so long, that I will not see a full blown nationwide riot and loot job and worse....Just Keep buying AR's and other proper Tools and Plenty of Ammo for Each tool aka firearms....You just might need them thanks to todays agendas of anti-whiteness eh.


    THEY Owe Us for everything they wrecked and ruined, and a HUGE Rebate $$$ Cash rebate due to all the abject Failures within USA-Public Edjewcation….We white taxpayers fund it all or most of it, so where is Our Cash Rebates from Ingrate africans and stupid lib dems and of course jewish leaderships in it all?


    They Owe Us whiteys at least $25-Trillion!! Maybe More eh?


    All I got left to pay out is...Rule .308 to start with.

    This is true, unfortunately. I had thought that it was possible to make a bargain of 'You get $1 Trillion, but now it is over and no further claims!' would do it, but unequal outcomes means the whining will never end (the same goes for 'feminism').

    Reparations have been a sore subject of AA resentments since the end of slavery and the failure to deliver the promised 40 acres and a mule.
    University black studies departments, invented after the upheavals of the 60's, made this subject the very center of AA intellectual thought when discussing the white people problem amongst themselves.

    Doesn’t it work better when the reparations instead consist of the historically oppressed group being given a monopoly on the business opportunity to sell a vice to white people rather than white people subsidizing a vice for nonwhites?

    I have an even better idea.

    The next time the Fed has to do QE (which isn't far off), give the money as a cash payout exclusively to black people (>50% black ancestry needed. No one-drop rule).

    There are, say, 20 million black adults in the US (they have to have been born here, no black immigrants). So $1 Trillion of QE is a $50,000 payout to each black adult.

    Since the last few QEs have been a weird practice of buying just US Treasuries and MBSs, resulting in the gains concentrating exclusively to the topmost members of a few sectors of the economy, this instead gets the reparations meme put to bed, plus will lead to far more diffuse circulation.

    Most blacks will just waste all the money of course. Then, it will simply accrue to the people who are good at accumulating money anyway. The blacks will just be a pass-through entity, but then the reparations whining ends once and for all.

    The banks would break the country up via proxies long long before QE goes to anybody other than the 1%…..that includes reparations payments….most of them you could give a million bucks and it wouldn’t be enough.

    I agree in theory it’s an interesting currency diffusion mechanism….but it’ll never happsn…toonmany people with too much money to lose would strangle it dead in it’s crib….

    Land is not stolen when its control changes from one sovereign to another via war. This process is rightly called conquest, not theft, for very sound etymological, logical, and substantive reasons, just as murder and execution are very different things despite both being killings.

    Please purchase a dictionary, and perhaps a primer on first principles of property law. While you are at it look up "bill of attainder" and educate us all about the time Americans enslaved droves of Chinamen. N.B. The Opium Wars were very nuanced and internecine, despite foreign involvement, and also note Americans have yet to receive proper remuneration from the Chinese for liberating China from Japan, nor from Japan for that nation's relatively recent invasion of the U.S.A., so let's not go putting carts in front of horses....

    The Mexicans stole that land from Spain only about 26 years before. Getting conned by English Mason businessmen to revolt against Spain was probably the dumbest thing Mexico ever did.

    As far as losing all that land to America goes; would 1830s 40s America really have invaded Spanish as opposed to Mexican territory?

    And once Mexico got rid of Spain it went down down down in every quality of life. And it’s getting worse

    When Spain ruled its colony of Mexico Americans immigrated to that colony for land and opportunity. Soon as Mexicans ruled themselves they fled for the US and are still doing it.

  36. One possible move for the Republican party in 2020 would be to formally take a position against reparations- something that would pressure the Democrats to take a position either for or against.

    The Republican party does not have a constituency favoring reparations, and could adopt this position without causing much intraparty conflict or losing any votes. The Democrats, on the other hand, would lose support if they took a position either for or against. A majority of African-Americans support reparations and might lose enthusiasm for a party that came out in opposition. However, the overwhelming majority of Whites (and a plurality of Hispanics) are opposed to the idea, and and many would be driven away from a party that adopted a position supporting reparations.

Almost all of the whites who still support Dems are the type of white in this story: masochists who would donate money so that anti-white coloreds could go to a bar, get free drinks and commiserate with each other about how much wypipo suck and how more needs to be done to twist wypipo's arms.

    And only Negroes have any right to yammer at all: the mestizos, Hindoos, Chinamen, Arabs, and so on who attempt to commingle themselves with Negroes to claim some history of oppression are ridiculous.

    Alcohol sales policies differ from state to state. For example, to name a few states with which I'm familiar, in New York and Connecticut supermarkets and other food stores can sell beer, but all other alcohol sales are in liquor stores. In Connecticut liquor stores (locally called "package stores") sell beer, but in New York they do not. In California supermarkets and food stores can sell all types of alcohol, while in Pennsylvania all alcohol sales including beer are restricted to state-run liquor stores.

It's the Stallmanesque software dream version of psychoactive drugs. That also contributes of course to prohibition being ridiculously ineffective and destructive.

    In Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland, all alcohol over a certain percentage (and that can be pretty low – only 2.8% in Iceland) can only be sold in licensed bars and restaurants or in a government alcohol shop, which is open very restricted hours i.e. not mornings, evenings or Sundays.

    (Then there’s the cost factor.)

  49. “Reparation” is the noun form of the verb, “repair”.

    Repair = by definition, to restore to a good or sound condition after decay or damage; mend, which makes me think about places like Detroit, Baltimore, Atlanta, Newark etc. etc. Let’s put the burden (of reparations) back where it belongs.

    One possible move for the Republican party in 2020 would be to formally take a position against reparations- something that would pressure the Democrats to take a position either for or against.

    The Republican party does not have a constituency favoring reparations, and could adopt this position without causing much intraparty conflict or losing any votes. The Democrats, on the other hand, would lose support if they took a position either for or against. A majority of African-Americans support reparations and might lose enthusiasm for a party that came out in opposition. However, the overwhelming majority of Whites (and a plurality of Hispanics) are opposed to the idea, and and many would be driven away from a party that adopted a position supporting reparations.

    Interesting idea, but two rebuttals:

    1) The GOP has long earned its moniker of “the stupid party.” There’s no reason to think this will change any time soon.

    2) There aren’t many self-respecting whites left voting for the Dems. In recent years, the Democrats have made their fear and loathing of white people obvious to even the dimmest of people. Almost all of the whites who still support Dems are the type of white in this story: masochists who would donate money so that anti-white coloreds could go to a bar, get free drinks and commiserate with each other about how much wypipo suck and how more needs to be done to twist wypipo’s arms.

    Unfortunately, I have to agree with your first point. Although I think that opposing reparations would be a good idea for the Republicans to adopt, you are probably correct in believing that they will not do so any time soon.

    Regarding your second point, I think that the situation is more complicated. The primary benefit to the Republicans of adopting this idea would not be gaining the support of Democrats, but gaining the support of Independents who sometimes vote for Democrat candidates. It may be different in some parts of the country, but in the midwestern city where I live, I personally know several people who often vote for Democrats but who would be strongly opposed to reparations and who I think would be unlikely to support a candidate who favored the idea.

    Opinion polls support this reasoning. Although polls show that most Blacks support reparations, they seem to be the only demographic group with this opinion. Even white Democrats are opposed. For example, a Marist poll from 2016 showed that 55% of Democrats oppose reparations while 38% support them. Among Republicans, the margin was 10% support/86% oppose, and among Independents, the margin was 22% support, 75% oppose. By race, the figures were: Whites: 15% support/81% oppose; Blacks: 58% support/35% oppose; Hispanics: 46% support/47% oppose.

    http://maristpoll.marist.edu/510-reparations-for-slavery-in-the-united-states/

    A quick google search will bring up other polls on the subject, all of which give similar results.

    How about giving them another country? Whether it is carved out of the current USA, or is located elsewhere, it would be better for all involved to separate and stop trying to force them and us to live together. We could even agree to a memorandum of understanding to funnel subsidies to this new nation like we do with our little friend in the middle east. And now that our little friend is growing rich, we could use our current subsidy to them to help subsidize this new nation of African Americans.

    Fried chicken was an Austrian S German French N Italian method of preparing meat by coating it in flour spices sometimes bread crumbs before frying it

    In German it’s schnitzel Italian milanese, French paner. It’s a common method of preparing meat in all cuisines.

    It was the early German settlers who taught the blacks about fried chicken breaded pork chops and the rest, chicken fried steak is just Weiner schnitzel and veal Milanese with beef instead of veal

    Alcohol sales policies differ from state to state. For example, to name a few states with which I’m familiar, in New York and Connecticut supermarkets and other food stores can sell beer, but all other alcohol sales are in liquor stores. In Connecticut liquor stores (locally called “package stores”) sell beer, but in New York they do not.

    Missouri has the most the most simplified uniform alcohol laws in the country. (thanks, or not to Augie Busch) There is no such thing as local option laws there. All on premise and off premise alcohol vendors can sell any form of alcohol pursuant to state laws only and localities can't get involved in any of the licensing or regulatory processes save for zoning laws. Indiana has the lowest state tax on beer. (respect for working class??) It's so low compared to Michigan, that Michigan sends observer cops into Indiana near the Michigan border to surveil beer retailer parking lots for Michigan tags and then they bust them for "importing" when they cross back into Michigan.

    That's not quite an accurate description of Pennsylvania's alcohol laws.

    Wine and liquor for off-premises consumption are only available at state liquor stores.

    Beer is a bit more complicated; the state's granted 2 types of private semi-monopolies. Up to 192 oz (basically, 2 six-packs) can be purchased at a bar or a six-pack shop.
    If you'd like to buy more than 12 beers to go, you have to make a trip to a beer distributor (or if the 6-pack shop is friendly, you can walk outside and back in, and then buy another 2 six-packs since you're making a second visit).

    When we stole land during the Mexican war

    Japanese internment

    Chinese stuff

    Land is not stolen when its control changes from one sovereign to another via war. This process is rightly called conquest, not theft, for very sound etymological, logical, and substantive reasons, just as murder and execution are very different things despite both being killings.

    Please purchase a dictionary, and perhaps a primer on first principles of property law. While you are at it look up “bill of attainder” and educate us all about the time Americans enslaved droves of Chinamen. N.B. The Opium Wars were very nuanced and internecine, despite foreign involvement, and also note Americans have yet to receive proper remuneration from the Chinese for liberating China from Japan, nor from Japan for that nation’s relatively recent invasion of the U.S.A., so let’s not go putting carts in front of horses….

    Doesn’t it work better when the reparations instead consist of the historically oppressed group being given a monopoly on the business opportunity to sell a vice to white people rather than white people subsidizing a vice for nonwhites?

    The next time the Fed has to do QE (which isn't far off), give the money as a cash payout exclusively to black people (>50% black ancestry needed. No one-drop rule).

    There are, say, 20 million black adults in the US (they have to have been born here, no black immigrants). So $1 Trillion of QE is a $50,000 payout to each black adult.

    Since the last few QEs have been a weird practice of buying just US Treasuries and MBSs, resulting in the gains concentrating exclusively to the topmost members of a few sectors of the economy, this instead gets the reparations meme put to bed, plus will lead to far more diffuse circulation.

    Most blacks will just waste all the money of course. Then, it will simply accrue to the people who are good at accumulating money anyway. The blacks will just be a pass-through entity, but then the reparations whining ends once and for all.

    After whites spent 300+ years building and making Detroit into the greatest manufacturing city, with worlds highest wages and benefits for a blue color work man, and into what came to be called The Motor City….Detroit all a sudden had coloreds demanding that “All we be axin fo iz dat chanze ta proobs it!….We needs ta proobs dat we colored kinz run Detroit as goodt or betta den dem whitey crackas folk….But….All we axin for is dat chanze ta proobs it an we kant do it wit out white votes heps me because we colored is da minority votes an all and sheeetz.”

    Indeed…At age 10 yrs old I wasn’t to savy on political issues…Nor issues regards those colored folks other than warnings of how violent they can be…it all changed when first the first african family bought a house for sale a couple blocks down My street….I noticed it on my walk to grade school one spring morning…..Soon it was summer vacation, and hoards of coloreds demanding their big chance to proobs they kin runs Detroit as good or betta den da whites does…

    Well being Detroiters were mainly lib dems, most voices I heard kept claiming or saying. Stuff like:

    “Well maybe if we just give the coloreds what they demand, allow coloreds to take over Detroit’s city hall, Mayors job, City Council members, Have a colored police chief, fireman chief, control school board etc et al….Then maybe, Finally, them colored folks will just stop demanding and leave us Whites alone finally!”

    Riiiiggghhhtttt!…..Even at age 10 yrs old then I sensed something rotten in that plan eh. Especially after I saw first hand how from late spring early summer that first ever african savage family moved into a house down the street and on my same street….And I saw how quickly, by summers end and return to school in Fall time…That was all it took for that colored family to fully wreck and ruin that house, its front and back yard, and mainly cause 98% of white homes to get a For Sale sign upon front lawn and whitey flight began in earnest.

    Yes indeed all dey axin fo is dat chance ta proobs coloreds kin run Detroit eben betta den white crackas ebber did!…

    Not only did they ruin and wreck a vibrant wonderfull white neighborhood and within two years time occupy Every house on that street, My street, but also every street east-west-north or south of it….And did it all in Two years flat….So wrecked and ruined when after we moved, I rode my Schwinn Bicycle back there to see what it now looked like, and verify if those older people were correct on extreme ruinations caused by african hoards etc…..Yes they were correct all right…In just two years time I barely was able to recognize my Own street!

    [MORE]

    But wait!…I gets even worse yet!…Not only can African hoards fully wreck a street of well kept beautiful homes, homes kept so nice for generations of whites….But when it came to Detroit.

    I call it “Ground Zero” same as a Nuke blast zone center blast area is called…Ground Zero-Detroit.

    First major white city, and best and famous globally as the Motor City Manufacture Capitol of world.

    And once them colored convinced white folk to gibs them da chance ta proobs dey kin run Detroit even better than whites did…..All it took was FIVE short years from Coloreds took over with african mayor and all city positions in civil city wide government etc. For colored control of Detroit to.

    RIOT! LOOT! And Burn Half the city Down!….Plus do a lot of various other typical colored folk related violence and murders and rape of whites.

    Yes indeed eh…Boy colored folks back in 1963 to 1968 era really Proved how swell Detroit can be run if Only we whiteys gibs dat chanze ta proobs it because its “All we Axin Fo is da chance ta proobs it is all….”

    And once they wrecked Detroit ground zero, they was off to the races eh….in another 10-20 yrs time coloreds ruined and wrecked and rioted in just about Every Major or large city Nationwide.

    And NO stupid monkey baboonery minded crapola will ever convince me different since I was born and raised in ground zero of, coloreds led by jewdeo-lib-dems as their pet wrecking crew of savage animals.

    I also hitched a car ride from an older pal with a car to the very Heart and Center of Rioting and Lootings during their huge riot back then….We drove as far downtown on Grand River Ave. Down to right across street from Red Wings Hockey teams, Olympia stadium…..Then a fully armed National Guardsman and a few local Detroit cops with him stopped our vehicle, and told the four of us kids we had no choice but to “Leave and head Back ASAP Fast, for the crazed rioter negroes were so out of hand and no good way to regain control by cops or nat guard troops, that they could Not protect us at all and if we valued our lives and car to get the fuck out Now!”

    What a sight to behold eh….Crazed hopped up, doped up savage animals running wild stealing every possible thing not nailed down….our car on way down and on return ride back, had to several times stop in middle of Grand River ave, a very wide 6 or was it an 8 lane road…Due to being unable to drive further until several sets of two colored guys struggling to take stolen huge refridg’s across all 6-8 lanes of road and blocking traffic doing so!

    I am 100% certain by that experience as well as another 35 years after of life in Detroit areas….Till Moved 200 Miles North of Detroit in 1995, that nothing can ever be worse of a Curse upon whites than African savages….Other than jewry that is…jewry=#1 curse & African savages=#2 curse.

    What took over 300 years of hard work to build and make what began as a French Fort on the Detroit River banks….Into THE Motor City Detroit. World Famous with peoples coming from every corner of the globe just to See it first hand and in person after hearing so much of its greatness etc…

    Only took them savages 5 years from “Gibs us da chance ta proobs it iz all we be axin fo” into Looted-Burned half down, Wrecked and Ruined forever Detroit…Ground Zero for New dem colored agendas…..Mixed with LBJ’s greater Gen welfare, and was it Jimmy Carters? Affirmative Action aka Reverse Racism against Whites…..And total city wide Colored folks inhabiting Every possible political office, and thru AA policy colored folk replaced a full Third of prior white factory workermen…..In all Big Three car makers and another 40,000+ Mid to small size factories and industries Tied to big three car co’s as suppliers etc…..Soon most every negroe had a good pay and bennies Job thru AA policy…

    And soon after, americans began buying Jap made cars thanks to, with an affirmative action worker force of a full Third new black hires….That do piss poor lack of quality work, care Not because if any factory foreman or supervisor dared complain of poor work produced by an African worker?….He was fast called a Raaayyysssis! and Fired!

    So thanks to AA jobs and piss poor quality in former great built vehicles….Folks bought Jap cars and helped finalize the wrecking ruination of coloreds fantasy agenda of run Detroit better!

    Today Entire, or close to it, America is a wasteland infiltrated by too many savages to count and as bad as Detroit was then….America today is 50 times worse yet.

    Cannot wait to see how worse yet it gets due to all them illeagles and the now “Browning” of usa eh.

    Oh well as long as they leave us that still reside in good white zones or areas alone…I can live out my life from here on without ever a return to Detroit or ANY large monkey run city if necessary.

    I do not think the ongoing melt down can go so much longer as is with the center still holding though….No..I doubt if I live another 25 or so years if lucky enough to live so long, that I will not see a full blown nationwide riot and loot job and worse….Just Keep buying AR’s and other proper Tools and Plenty of Ammo for Each tool aka firearms….You just might need them thanks to todays agendas of anti-whiteness eh.

    THEY Owe Us for everything they wrecked and ruined, and a HUGE Rebate $$$ Cash rebate due to all the abject Failures within USA-Public Edjewcation….We white taxpayers fund it all or most of it, so where is Our Cash Rebates from Ingrate africans and stupid lib dems and of course jewish leaderships in it all?

    They Owe Us whiteys at least $25-Trillion!! Maybe More eh?

    All I got left to pay out is…Rule .308 to start with.

    The people who get that free money in your second round get it by trading away something of value — a car, a boat, a house, or whatever else the wastrells bought with it. So the money is "free" only to the first round.

    Having said that, I think the idea of voluntary reparations is fine. Those who feel guilty can be the ones giving, and leave everyone else out of it. Still waiting for all the white people who say we stole the land from the Indians to give their own land back to the Indians. Rarely seems to happen, for some reason.

    Thus, the Sailer-Nixon Slavery Reparations Plan of letting African-Americans have a monopoly on weed dealing would seem like a better concept than this Portland Plan of white people giving black people free substances to abuse.
     
    How about giving them another country? Whether it is carved out of the current USA, or is located elsewhere, it would be better for all involved to separate and stop trying to force them and us to live together. We could even agree to a memorandum of understanding to funnel subsidies to this new nation like we do with our little friend in the middle east. And now that our little friend is growing rich, we could use our current subsidy to them to help subsidize this new nation of African Americans.

    Give them africans a few hundred Nukes too same as Israel eh…Then like Israeli jewry threatens the whole world with a nuked Samson option if jews stop getting their way….That new all African savages nation can also threaten usa and other nations with their very own option of nukes called something akin to…”The Ebolaniqwious Tyronius Option” eh….The Nuke option threat with Mo MOJO!

    If it is, try Trader Joe's. They give out free samples. (Not of beer, though.)

    Since it’s Memorial Day weekend, all those reparations screaming idiots can go to Gettysburg and look at the graves there. Anything we owed them was paid in full by their blood, along with the 300,000 other white soldiers in United States uniforms who died in the Civil War.

    We don’t owe you a goddamn thing.

    Reparations is just the right thing to do.

    Since the essential claim is that their ancestors were brought here as slaves–against their will–the reasonable reparations program would fix this, right this wrong, and give blacks an opportunity to renounce life in the US and return to Africa with our thanks, appreciation and compensation.

    I believe departing compensation along the lines of $50000 is reasonable. While it is not the kind of money that say Jared Kushner or Ivanka Trump inherit, it is more than the median white person receives in free capital from their ancestors, and it is orders of magnitude more than the typical black in Africa inherits–the state they would be in but for slavery.

    However,
    1) This would not be “one drop”, but pro-rata based on percentage of sub-saharan DNA (no credit for your white ancestors). So a pretty much all black black would be eligible for the whole $50,000, a Melissa Harris Perry type, much, much less.

    2) The full $50,000 would be for “fertility” age black adults and requires the repariation of all their children as well. An older black could still receive the $50,000, but only on condition that all his or her living descendants had also taken the offer and were being (or had been) repatriated to Africa. (Families would have an incentive to return together.) Blacks leaving descendants behind are not eligible for reparations. However, they are free to repatriate to Africa on a repatriation cruise or flight and recieve the net present value of their social security and medicare contributions. (As are all blacks repatriating.)

    3) Convicted black felons–who have stated by their behavior, that the reject the norms of this society– would face mandatory repatriation, but their compensation payment would be subject to claims for victim compensation. (Payments would be made to any African nation willing to accept them, to facilitate their reintegration.)

    Note, since it makes no sense to import more sub-Saharan DNA, which could immediately–and unjustifiably–turn around and get a reparations claim, or have a descendant get one generations later–any reparations program would require an immediate end to African immigration, which would have the benefit of protecting Africans from living in a racist country like the US. Since that might be seen as “unfair” or even “racist”, the best policy would simply be an immigration moratorium so that no people of any race are subject to the structural racism of the United States.

    I believe this type of program is fair minded and healing. It addresses the legacy of slavery and gives black Americans the opportunity to essentially “reverse” that terrible chapter for themselves and their descendants bringing them back to Africa with the financial compensation necessary to successfully reintegrate themselves into their ancestral homeland. In addition it replaces the human capital taken from Africa and brings African nations an influx of both skills and capital to enhance development. And American blacks choosing to turn down this generous compensation and remain in the US, would be making a statement that they are–of their own free will–here in this nation, and believe it to be a better deal for themselves than if their ancestors had remained unenslaved in Africa.

    Win, win, win. I hope all Americans will embrace this policy of reparations and thus put the sorry chapter of slavery behind us as a nation.

    The Civil War also destroyed most of the wealth that existed in the South. So any notion that blacks built the fortunes of the South must account for the fact that as of the conclusion of the Civil War, it was all destroyed.

    Land is not stolen when its control changes from one sovereign to another via war. This process is rightly called conquest, not theft, for very sound etymological, logical, and substantive reasons, just as murder and execution are very different things despite both being killings.

    Please purchase a dictionary, and perhaps a primer on first principles of property law. While you are at it look up "bill of attainder" and educate us all about the time Americans enslaved droves of Chinamen. N.B. The Opium Wars were very nuanced and internecine, despite foreign involvement, and also note Americans have yet to receive proper remuneration from the Chinese for liberating China from Japan, nor from Japan for that nation's relatively recent invasion of the U.S.A., so let's not go putting carts in front of horses....

    Right. The Japanese were exerting all their might in Manchuria at that time because the American campaign to the east was entirely inconsequential; it is obvious to any student of military science the Soviets and Chinese beat Japan into submission and the disavowal of their expansionist ambitions. That's why we all vividly remember China's devastating flights on 6 and 9 August 1945 and the Japanese capitulation aboard the Marat as the things that assured the empire's defeat....

Non-Whites like Thomm immigrate to a historically White-majority nation, then hate on the ethnic group that built our nation while taking advantage of our indoor plumbing, toilets and comfortable living standards?

    The weed reparations idea just isn't workable though.

It's the Stallmanesque software dream version of psychoactive drugs. That also contributes of course to prohibition being ridiculously ineffective and destructive.

    Weed for personal use is easy to grow. But growing and distributing weed to make a good living requires a lot of mechanical and electrical skills to keep the machinery going. Plus the ability to read the manuals about the fertilizers and minerals used.

    When we stole land during the Mexican war

    Japanese internment

    Chinese stuff

    The Mexicans stole that land from Spain only about 26 years before. Getting conned by English Mason businessmen to revolt against Spain was probably the dumbest thing Mexico ever did.

    As far as losing all that land to America goes; would 1830s 40s America really have invaded Spanish as opposed to Mexican territory?

    And once Mexico got rid of Spain it went down down down in every quality of life. And it’s getting worse

    When Spain ruled its colony of Mexico Americans immigrated to that colony for land and opportunity. Soon as Mexicans ruled themselves they fled for the US and are still doing it.

    The chart ignores Asians, of course. Asians would be even more positive than whites.

    If you count the old Chinese shipped over here to take advantage of social security for people who never worked a day in their life in America, Medicare medi- caid, senior housing, senior maid caretaker service and every senior benefit from free vans and bus passes to free meals on wheels and food banks you would be surprised at how much money China’s using America as their pension system costs us.

    And a lot of them aren’t 65 but 55 with fake ID when they get on the senior gravy train.

    The purpose of 'social benefits' in America is to funnel wealth from white people to africans, asians, and latinos. What the purpose of africans, asians, and latinos is? Well, I guess to have things funneled to them. Then of course there are the 'middlemen' to siphon off their 'fair share'...

    Interesting idea, but two rebuttals:

    1) The GOP has long earned its moniker of "the stupid party." There's no reason to think this will change any time soon.

    2) There aren't many self-respecting whites left voting for the Dems. In recent years, the Democrats have made their fear and loathing of white people obvious to even the dimmest of people. Almost all of the whites who still support Dems are the type of white in this story: masochists who would donate money so that anti-white coloreds could go to a bar, get free drinks and commiserate with each other about how much wypipo suck and how more needs to be done to twist wypipo's arms.

    Jews and the very very rich Whites still vote Democrat. Millionaires are Republicans. Democrats are either government non profit grant hustler employees, on welfare, or billionaires.

    Western black POC (people of complaint) contributed watermelanin, peanut butter, and fried chicken to American culture.

    White POA (people of accomplishment), no the other hand, actually built the USA, from its founding documents to iPhones to infinity and beyond.

    Blacks, as the first humans evolving in Africa, created slavery…along with rape, torture, war, and cannibalism (but, tellingly, not the wheel). So blame THEM for all current world problems!

    They didn’t even invent peanut butter or fried chicken.

    The first peanut butter patent was a White Canadian named Edson 1884 next the famous Dr Kellogg 1895.

    What’s his name, the black gentleman genius patented numerous other uses for peanuts for which he was beloved and given numerous awards by White southern farmers struggling to survive being an exploited colony of White northern bankers and industrialists

    Fried chicken was an Austrian S German French N Italian method of preparing meat by coating it in flour spices sometimes bread crumbs before frying it

    In German it’s schnitzel Italian milanese, French paner. It’s a common method of preparing meat in all cuisines.

    It was the early German settlers who taught the blacks about fried chicken breaded pork chops and the rest, chicken fried steak is just Weiner schnitzel and veal Milanese with beef instead of veal

    The slave dealers loaded watermelon on the slave ships. I love watermelon so I’m glad for that.

    Unfortunately, I have to agree with your first point. Although I think that opposing reparations would be a good idea for the Republicans to adopt, you are probably correct in believing that they will not do so any time soon.

    Regarding your second point, I think that the situation is more complicated. The primary benefit to the Republicans of adopting this idea would not be gaining the support of Democrats, but gaining the support of Independents who sometimes vote for Democrat candidates. It may be different in some parts of the country, but in the midwestern city where I live, I personally know several people who often vote for Democrats but who would be strongly opposed to reparations and who I think would be unlikely to support a candidate who favored the idea.

    Opinion polls support this reasoning. Although polls show that most Blacks support reparations, they seem to be the only demographic group with this opinion. Even white Democrats are opposed. For example, a Marist poll from 2016 showed that 55% of Democrats oppose reparations while 38% support them. Among Republicans, the margin was 10% support/86% oppose, and among Independents, the margin was 22% support, 75% oppose. By race, the figures were: Whites: 15% support/81% oppose; Blacks: 58% support/35% oppose; Hispanics: 46% support/47% oppose.

    A quick google search will bring up other polls on the subject, all of which give similar results.

    The Americans did not liberate China from Japan. The Soviets drove the Japanese out of Manchuria before they surrendered.

    Right. The Japanese were exerting all their might in Manchuria at that time because the American campaign to the east was entirely inconsequential; it is obvious to any student of military science the Soviets and Chinese beat Japan into submission and the disavowal of their expansionist ambitions. That’s why we all vividly remember China’s devastating flights on 6 and 9 August 1945 and the Japanese capitulation aboard the Marat as the things that assured the empire’s defeat….

    I disagree with JDB in this instance. It’s a good tune and the lyrics, which don’t normally matter much so long as you’ve got a good tune and sound, are very good. Not that many artists sing about history, but here is one that wrote and sang some great history rock. Mr. Al Stewart here sings about operation Barbarossa.

    Alcohol sales policies differ from state to state. For example, to name a few states with which I'm familiar, in New York and Connecticut supermarkets and other food stores can sell beer, but all other alcohol sales are in liquor stores. In Connecticut liquor stores (locally called "package stores") sell beer, but in New York they do not. In California supermarkets and food stores can sell all types of alcohol, while in Pennsylvania all alcohol sales including beer are restricted to state-run liquor stores.

    That’s not quite an accurate description of Pennsylvania’s alcohol laws.

    Wine and liquor for off-premises consumption are only available at state liquor stores.

    Beer is a bit more complicated; the state’s granted 2 types of private semi-monopolies. Up to 192 oz (basically, 2 six-packs) can be purchased at a bar or a six-pack shop.
    If you’d like to buy more than 12 beers to go, you have to make a trip to a beer distributor (or if the 6-pack shop is friendly, you can walk outside and back in, and then buy another 2 six-packs since you’re making a second visit).

  116. the Sailer-Nixon Slavery Reparations Plan of letting African-Americans have a monopoly on weed dealing would seem like a better concept than this Portland Plan of white people giving black people free substances to abuse.

    Sort of related to this: I’ve thought that legalized weed will be bad for blacks, since they have a comparative advantage in ignoring laws and regulations, whereas whites have a comparative advantage in navigating them – leading to the dispensary crowding the street dealer out of the market.

    Africans Owe White's for the huge mess Detroit has become. I recall in 1963 at age 10 yrs old, hearing all my elders and parents etc complain of a new agenda colored folks were demanding.

    After whites spent 300+ years building and making Detroit into the greatest manufacturing city, with worlds highest wages and benefits for a blue color work man, and into what came to be called The Motor City....Detroit all a sudden had coloreds demanding that "All we be axin fo iz dat chanze ta proobs it!....We needs ta proobs dat we colored kinz run Detroit as goodt or betta den dem whitey crackas folk....But....All we axin for is dat chanze ta proobs it an we kant do it wit out white votes heps me because we colored is da minority votes an all and sheeetz."

    Indeed...At age 10 yrs old I wasn't to savy on political issues...Nor issues regards those colored folks other than warnings of how violent they can be...it all changed when first the first african family bought a house for sale a couple blocks down My street....I noticed it on my walk to grade school one spring morning.....Soon it was summer vacation, and hoards of coloreds demanding their big chance to proobs they kin runs Detroit as good or betta den da whites does...

    Well being Detroiters were mainly lib dems, most voices I heard kept claiming or saying. Stuff like:

    "Well maybe if we just give the coloreds what they demand, allow coloreds to take over Detroit's city hall, Mayors job, City Council members, Have a colored police chief, fireman chief, control school board etc et al....Then maybe, Finally, them colored folks will just stop demanding and leave us Whites alone finally!"

    Riiiiggghhhtttt!.....Even at age 10 yrs old then I sensed something rotten in that plan eh. Especially after I saw first hand how from late spring early summer that first ever african savage family moved into a house down the street and on my same street....And I saw how quickly, by summers end and return to school in Fall time...That was all it took for that colored family to fully wreck and ruin that house, its front and back yard, and mainly cause 98% of white homes to get a For Sale sign upon front lawn and whitey flight began in earnest.

    Yes indeed all dey axin fo is dat chance ta proobs coloreds kin run Detroit eben betta den white crackas ebber did!...

    Not only did they ruin and wreck a vibrant wonderfull white neighborhood and within two years time occupy Every house on that street, My street, but also every street east-west-north or south of it....And did it all in Two years flat....So wrecked and ruined when after we moved, I rode my Schwinn Bicycle back there to see what it now looked like, and verify if those older people were correct on extreme ruinations caused by african hoards etc.....Yes they were correct all right...In just two years time I barely was able to recognize my Own street!

    But wait!...I gets even worse yet!...Not only can African hoards fully wreck a street of well kept beautiful homes, homes kept so nice for generations of whites....But when it came to Detroit.

    I call it "Ground Zero" same as a Nuke blast zone center blast area is called...Ground Zero-Detroit.

    First major white city, and best and famous globally as the Motor City Manufacture Capitol of world.

    And once them colored convinced white folk to gibs them da chance ta proobs dey kin run Detroit even better than whites did.....All it took was FIVE short years from Coloreds took over with african mayor and all city positions in civil city wide government etc. For colored control of Detroit to.

    RIOT! LOOT! And Burn Half the city Down!....Plus do a lot of various other typical colored folk related violence and murders and rape of whites.

    Yes indeed eh...Boy colored folks back in 1963 to 1968 era really Proved how swell Detroit can be run if Only we whiteys gibs dat chanze ta proobs it because its "All we Axin Fo is da chance ta proobs it is all...."

    And once they wrecked Detroit ground zero, they was off to the races eh....in another 10-20 yrs time coloreds ruined and wrecked and rioted in just about Every Major or large city Nationwide.

    And NO stupid monkey baboonery minded crapola will ever convince me different since I was born and raised in ground zero of, coloreds led by jewdeo-lib-dems as their pet wrecking crew of savage animals.


    I also hitched a car ride from an older pal with a car to the very Heart and Center of Rioting and Lootings during their huge riot back then....We drove as far downtown on Grand River Ave. Down to right across street from Red Wings Hockey teams, Olympia stadium.....Then a fully armed National Guardsman and a few local Detroit cops with him stopped our vehicle, and told the four of us kids we had no choice but to "Leave and head Back ASAP Fast, for the crazed rioter negroes were so out of hand and no good way to regain control by cops or nat guard troops, that they could Not protect us at all and if we valued our lives and car to get the fuck out Now!"


    What a sight to behold eh....Crazed hopped up, doped up savage animals running wild stealing every possible thing not nailed down....our car on way down and on return ride back, had to several times stop in middle of Grand River ave, a very wide 6 or was it an 8 lane road...Due to being unable to drive further until several sets of two colored guys struggling to take stolen huge refridg's across all 6-8 lanes of road and blocking traffic doing so!


    I am 100% certain by that experience as well as another 35 years after of life in Detroit areas....Till Moved 200 Miles North of Detroit in 1995, that nothing can ever be worse of a Curse upon whites than African savages....Other than jewry that is...jewry=#1 curse & African savages=#2 curse.


    What took over 300 years of hard work to build and make what began as a French Fort on the Detroit River banks....Into THE Motor City Detroit. World Famous with peoples coming from every corner of the globe just to See it first hand and in person after hearing so much of its greatness etc...


    Only took them savages 5 years from "Gibs us da chance ta proobs it iz all we be axin fo" into Looted-Burned half down, Wrecked and Ruined forever Detroit...Ground Zero for New dem colored agendas.....Mixed with LBJ's greater Gen welfare, and was it Jimmy Carters? Affirmative Action aka Reverse Racism against Whites.....And total city wide Colored folks inhabiting Every possible political office, and thru AA policy colored folk replaced a full Third of prior white factory workermen…..In all Big Three car makers and another 40,000+ Mid to small size factories and industries Tied to big three car co's as suppliers etc.....Soon most every negroe had a good pay and bennies Job thru AA policy...


    And soon after, americans began buying Jap made cars thanks to, with an affirmative action worker force of a full Third new black hires....That do piss poor lack of quality work, care Not because if any factory foreman or supervisor dared complain of poor work produced by an African worker?....He was fast called a Raaayyysssis! and Fired!


    So thanks to AA jobs and piss poor quality in former great built vehicles....Folks bought Jap cars and helped finalize the wrecking ruination of coloreds fantasy agenda of run Detroit better!


    Today Entire, or close to it, America is a wasteland infiltrated by too many savages to count and as bad as Detroit was then....America today is 50 times worse yet.


    Cannot wait to see how worse yet it gets due to all them illeagles and the now "Browning" of usa eh.


    Oh well as long as they leave us that still reside in good white zones or areas alone...I can live out my life from here on without ever a return to Detroit or ANY large monkey run city if necessary.


    I do not think the ongoing melt down can go so much longer as is with the center still holding though....No..I doubt if I live another 25 or so years if lucky enough to live so long, that I will not see a full blown nationwide riot and loot job and worse....Just Keep buying AR's and other proper Tools and Plenty of Ammo for Each tool aka firearms....You just might need them thanks to todays agendas of anti-whiteness eh.


    THEY Owe Us for everything they wrecked and ruined, and a HUGE Rebate $$$ Cash rebate due to all the abject Failures within USA-Public Edjewcation….We white taxpayers fund it all or most of it, so where is Our Cash Rebates from Ingrate africans and stupid lib dems and of course jewish leaderships in it all?


    They Owe Us whiteys at least $25-Trillion!! Maybe More eh?

    Riiiiggghhhtttt!.....Even at age 10 yrs old then I sensed something rotten in that plan eh. Especially after I saw first hand how from late spring early summer that first ever african savage family moved into a house down the street and on my same street....And I saw how quickly, by summers end and return to school in Fall time...That was all it took for that colored family to fully wreck and ruin that house, its front and back yard, and mainly cause 98% of white homes to get a For Sale sign upon front lawn and whitey flight began in earnest.

    Yes indeed all dey axin fo is dat chance ta proobs coloreds kin run Detroit eben betta den white crackas ebber did!...

    Not only did they ruin and wreck a vibrant wonderfull white neighborhood and within two years time occupy Every house on that street, My street, but also every street east-west-north or south of it....And did it all in Two years flat....So wrecked and ruined when after we moved, I rode my Schwinn Bicycle back there to see what it now looked like, and verify if those older people were correct on extreme ruinations caused by african hoards etc.....Yes they were correct all right...In just two years time I barely was able to recognize my Own street!

    But wait!...I gets even worse yet!...Not only can African hoards fully wreck a street of well kept beautiful homes, homes kept so nice for generations of whites....But when it came to Detroit.

    I call it "Ground Zero" same as a Nuke blast zone center blast area is called...Ground Zero-Detroit.

    First major white city, and best and famous globally as the Motor City Manufacture Capitol of world.

    And once them colored convinced white folk to gibs them da chance ta proobs dey kin run Detroit even better than whites did.....All it took was FIVE short years from Coloreds took over with african mayor and all city positions in civil city wide government etc. For colored control of Detroit to.

    RIOT! LOOT! And Burn Half the city Down!....Plus do a lot of various other typical colored folk related violence and murders and rape of whites.

    Yes indeed eh...Boy colored folks back in 1963 to 1968 era really Proved how swell Detroit can be run if Only we whiteys gibs dat chanze ta proobs it because its "All we Axin Fo is da chance ta proobs it is all...."

    And once they wrecked Detroit ground zero, they was off to the races eh....in another 10-20 yrs time coloreds ruined and wrecked and rioted in just about Every Major or large city Nationwide.

    And NO stupid monkey baboonery minded crapola will ever convince me different since I was born and raised in ground zero of, coloreds led by jewdeo-lib-dems as their pet wrecking crew of savage animals.


    I also hitched a car ride from an older pal with a car to the very Heart and Center of Rioting and Lootings during their huge riot back then....We drove as far downtown on Grand River Ave. Down to right across street from Red Wings Hockey teams, Olympia stadium.....Then a fully armed National Guardsman and a few local Detroit cops with him stopped our vehicle, and told the four of us kids we had no choice but to "Leave and head Back ASAP Fast, for the crazed rioter negroes were so out of hand and no good way to regain control by cops or nat guard troops, that they could Not protect us at all and if we valued our lives and car to get the fuck out Now!"


    What a sight to behold eh....Crazed hopped up, doped up savage animals running wild stealing every possible thing not nailed down....our car on way down and on return ride back, had to several times stop in middle of Grand River ave, a very wide 6 or was it an 8 lane road...Due to being unable to drive further until several sets of two colored guys struggling to take stolen huge refridg's across all 6-8 lanes of road and blocking traffic doing so!


    I am 100% certain by that experience as well as another 35 years after of life in Detroit areas....Till Moved 200 Miles North of Detroit in 1995, that nothing can ever be worse of a Curse upon whites than African savages....Other than jewry that is...jewry=#1 curse & African savages=#2 curse.


    What took over 300 years of hard work to build and make what began as a French Fort on the Detroit River banks....Into THE Motor City Detroit. World Famous with peoples coming from every corner of the globe just to See it first hand and in person after hearing so much of its greatness etc...


    Only took them savages 5 years from "Gibs us da chance ta proobs it iz all we be axin fo" into Looted-Burned half down, Wrecked and Ruined forever Detroit...Ground Zero for New dem colored agendas.....Mixed with LBJ's greater Gen welfare, and was it Jimmy Carters? Affirmative Action aka Reverse Racism against Whites.....And total city wide Colored folks inhabiting Every possible political office, and thru AA policy colored folk replaced a full Third of prior white factory workermen…..In all Big Three car makers and another 40,000+ Mid to small size factories and industries Tied to big three car co's as suppliers etc.....Soon most every negroe had a good pay and bennies Job thru AA policy...


    And soon after, americans began buying Jap made cars thanks to, with an affirmative action worker force of a full Third new black hires....That do piss poor lack of quality work, care Not because if any factory foreman or supervisor dared complain of poor work produced by an African worker?....He was fast called a Raaayyysssis! and Fired!


    So thanks to AA jobs and piss poor quality in former great built vehicles....Folks bought Jap cars and helped finalize the wrecking ruination of coloreds fantasy agenda of run Detroit better!


    Today Entire, or close to it, America is a wasteland infiltrated by too many savages to count and as bad as Detroit was then....America today is 50 times worse yet.


    Cannot wait to see how worse yet it gets due to all them illeagles and the now "Browning" of usa eh.


    Oh well as long as they leave us that still reside in good white zones or areas alone...I can live out my life from here on without ever a return to Detroit or ANY large monkey run city if necessary.


    I do not think the ongoing melt down can go so much longer as is with the center still holding though....No..I doubt if I live another 25 or so years if lucky enough to live so long, that I will not see a full blown nationwide riot and loot job and worse....Just Keep buying AR's and other proper Tools and Plenty of Ammo for Each tool aka firearms....You just might need them thanks to todays agendas of anti-whiteness eh.


    THEY Owe Us for everything they wrecked and ruined, and a HUGE Rebate $$$ Cash rebate due to all the abject Failures within USA-Public Edjewcation….We white taxpayers fund it all or most of it, so where is Our Cash Rebates from Ingrate africans and stupid lib dems and of course jewish leaderships in it all?


    They Owe Us whiteys at least $25-Trillion!! Maybe More eh?


    All I got left to pay out is...Rule .308 to start with.

    I heard it was an Irish-american politico named Jerome Kavinaugh who was the mover who started the new and improved Detroit.

    I agree.

    It’s a holiday celebrating the deaths 750,000 young White men in the prime of life and about 50, 000 White and black southern and border state civilians who died from the collateral effects of malnutrition, disease and other effects of war.

    Spit on tomorrow’s holiday We should have funeral type church services like All Souls’ Day instead.

    There are many (sparsely attended) church services. Mostly just a 3 day weekend which is not for Government employees only. Don’t seem to hear quite as much hypocrisy as on the 4th.

    I HATE HATE HATE almost every song The Band did. Excellent musicians but dreadful songs. And don't get me started on Joan Baez's versions of The Night They Laid Old Dixie Down. Pseudo authentic roots country codswallop from a bunch of Canucks.

    I’m kinda almost on board with you on your assessment of the Band, however it bears mentioning that Levon Helm was born in some small town in Arkansas and raised on a family cotton farm in a place called Turkey Scratch. And really, it’s hard not to like Ophelia, I don’t care who you are.

    The Canuck-Arkansas connection is wide and deep from Ronnie Hawkins.

    My favorite offshoots from the Hawkins connection are King Biscuit Boy (Richard Newell- Canuck bluesman) and Crowbar (associated band)

    (Richie “passes” light years ahead Rachel Dolezal as a vocalist/harp blower)

    It would be a Hell of a lot easier to ignore Asians if they stayed in Asia. But they invade European nations and their diaspora.
     
    The US is not a 'European Nation'. This is taught in third grade (which you probably flunked).

    But more specifically, 80% of white Americans don't have a problem with skilled, legal immigration. White Trashionalists do, since you want to mooch off of successful whites.

    White Trashionalism is just an appeal for intra-white socialism, nothing more. That is why you are hated by mainstream whites, and then imagine us to be 'Jews' or 'Chinese' or 'Indians' or 'Mexicans' when we put you in your place online.

    White Trashionalism

    Your hate for Whites makes you strong. Let it flow.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it:

    The only thing worse for a third-worlder than living in a racist America built by White Trashionalists is not being allowed to immigrate to a racist America built by White Trashionalists (and having to stay in their fecalized environment).

    Seriously, America needs a return to 1924 immigration standards. Non-Whites like Thomm immigrate to a historically White-majority nation, then hate on the ethnic group that built our nation while taking advantage of our indoor plumbing, toilets and comfortable living standards? Why have we allowed this to happen?

    China, Japan, Israel, Denmark all give preference to same ethnic groups for immigration and erect barriers for out-groups. This is normal behavior for normal nations.

    Because of our standards of fair play. They permitted a small group of tribalist hate-mongers to consolidate control of our mass media ("surely they mean well--doesn't everyone?"), and from that all things followed. Not even Hart-Celler could have happened without that.

    Land is not stolen when its control changes from one sovereign to another via war. This process is rightly called conquest, not theft, for very sound etymological, logical, and substantive reasons, just as murder and execution are very different things despite both being killings.

    Please purchase a dictionary, and perhaps a primer on first principles of property law. While you are at it look up "bill of attainder" and educate us all about the time Americans enslaved droves of Chinamen. N.B. The Opium Wars were very nuanced and internecine, despite foreign involvement, and also note Americans have yet to receive proper remuneration from the Chinese for liberating China from Japan, nor from Japan for that nation's relatively recent invasion of the U.S.A., so let's not go putting carts in front of horses....

    If you count the old Chinese shipped over here to take advantage of social security for people who never worked a day in their life in America, Medicare medi- caid, senior housing, senior maid caretaker service and every senior benefit from free vans and bus passes to free meals on wheels and food banks you would be surprised at how much money China’s using America as their pension system costs us.

    And a lot of them aren’t 65 but 55 with fake ID when they get on the senior gravy train.

    Doesn’t it work better when the reparations instead consist of the historically oppressed group being given a monopoly on the business opportunity to sell a vice to white people rather than white people subsidizing a vice for nonwhites?

    I have an even better idea.

    The next time the Fed has to do QE (which isn't far off), give the money as a cash payout exclusively to black people (>50% black ancestry needed. No one-drop rule).

    There are, say, 20 million black adults in the US (they have to have been born here, no black immigrants). So $1 Trillion of QE is a $50,000 payout to each black adult.

    Since the last few QEs have been a weird practice of buying just US Treasuries and MBSs, resulting in the gains concentrating exclusively to the topmost members of a few sectors of the economy, this instead gets the reparations meme put to bed, plus will lead to far more diffuse circulation.

    Most blacks will just waste all the money of course. Then, it will simply accrue to the people who are good at accumulating money anyway. The blacks will just be a pass-through entity, but then the reparations whining ends once and for all.

    “[T]he reparations whining ends once and for all”. In your dreams.
