What do you think about reparations? Missed wages paid for the work done while enslaved. The best time to do this would have been soon after the civil war but political realities made it impossible. Now we are multiple generations removed so it is more complicated. Still, I feel something like this should have been done.
I agree wholeheartedly with reparations to the families of the enslaved by the plantation owners families that created the multi-national conglomerates and ruling and political elitists of today, inclusive of the families of the blacks back then, right down to all of our families enslaved to this very day. It makes no difference if its chains and a whip, or prison, theft of our wealth and freedoms, and debt at the point of a gun we have today.
Additionally, I have problems with all human slavery that has gone on for thousands of years that have created the worlds ruling bloodlines and stores of wealth beyond imagination, all off the backs of every race of people, and reparations are owing and due. The people just need to stand up to claim them and take them...by force if necessary.
That said, since we must live in this system, I believe in equality for all. Black, white, yellow, brown, red, or purple... with no agendas, class distinctions, race distinctions, and certainly not a refusal to meter out equal justice under the law of in lieu of reparations for a few.
Don't want to meter out equal justice under the law?
Then repeal the legislation allowing for aggrivated "hate crime" sentances that situationally increase penalties for some, while lessening sentances for others. It's not equal justice under the law. I have my own problems with ordinance and statue law, but thats for another thread..
