The State of California is about to give over $200,000.00 to each Black person qualifying for reparations living in California. This means that California Tax Payers are going to have to foot the bill to pay this benefit, making almost every Black person in the State wealthy while leaving the lower economics of the State to the White and Hispanic races. Why? Because politicians are ignorant regarding race and because most of our citizens are sheep believing almost anything they are told relevant to race, without ever researching the information for any form of validation.
The U.S. has long used racism as a cause of Black people not being treated fairly, paid equally, or facing daily adversity. But what they have failed to do is look at the entire situation. The common percentage mathmatics provide us numbers that do not tell the true answers to our questions.
The Washington Post database which says Blacks make up approximately 13 percent of the U.S. population and that the Blacks realize abuse by authorities at a much higher rate than their 13 percent should tells only a portion of the story. What it fails to tell you is that Black people do not live everywhere in the U.S. and based on the community Blacks do in fact prove to be between 23 and 60 percent. Which means using the 13 percent rule of measurement fails to demonstrate the true facts, more Whites than Blacks are subject to abuse by authorities. But nobody tells you that!
As far as the financial breakdown of the races, there is no database I have yet to have found that gives a true calculation of the White race. Every other race can be determined but for some reason the White race data does not reveal itself. The only thing I can come up with is these databases do not want to demonstrate the true data they show. But, my findings are possibly indicative of the need for additional research because nothing demonstrates the true picture presently.
In 2019 21.2 percent of Blacks were living at poverty level. 21.2 percent is approximately 8,244,000 Blacks. During the same time year 9 percent of the White population was at poverty level. 9 percent is approximately 17,328,200 Whites. But even more surprising is that 17.2 of Hispanic were poverty level. 17.2 percent is approximately 10,174,200 Hispanics. By the numbers, there are more White people living in poverty than any other race. By percentage Hispanics are the highest percentage living in poverty. Clearly Blacks are not the big winner for poverty level.
It is my contention that this reparations based on skin color does not demonstrate the true facts. I believe the key factors of those in poverty outweigh skin color and that were the data compiled it would show that everything, each item claimed as suffered by Blacks was and is still being suffered by every other race in this Country. People find it hard to believe that Whites are denied housing, education, health care, or other benefit . . . but it is true. America does not want people to know how many Whites are subjected to these same issues. To bring this information to the surface would mean America is failing to be the America it has claimed to be.
Back to reparations. California is ready to give millions of dollars to Black people not given the same opportunities as Whites, for the same sufferings in which Whites were not given the same opportunities as more affluent Whites. Does anybody see the buildup for more racial discord between the races?
Now factor in the Civil War, the war to free the slaves. America is calling for reparations to benefit Blacks whose family were slaves. But were the slaves the only peoples that suffered? How about the men that fought to free the slaves and the families that lost family members and subsequent opportunity lost to their children and their children? How many White people have suffered since that time simply because they support equality? You see, many people have suffered, not just Blacks. Keep in mind that no forward motion in effort to bring about equality has been done without White participation.
What benefit does reparations provide? Other than making some Black people more affluent than they presently are and creating a need for taxation to foot the bill, it does nothing but serve as an insult to others that have suffered in effort of equality. Reparations are not equality. Reparations are specific precluding participation of other races that have suffered loss similar to Black people without consideration by our Government or the people writing such into law.
Is this going to create racial disharmony? More than anything it will be compiled with all the other benefits afforded the Blacks without inclusion of the other races and it will bring about anger. And when people of all colors in this Country get angry enough to seek the truth and discover that those making money from our racial divide are the problem. If our politicians would pay attention and quit serving a single race at the cost of another race could certainly serve to benefit all of us. But Political America and Corporate America fear the Black man and do not want to let the world know that White America is suffering like everybody else, so we will suffer the lies they use to justify it, while they continue to create racial discord for us all. For those of us seeking an end to racism, it will create additional set back but we will continue seeking equality for all while hoping for the maturity to become color-blind for one and all.
