Racism Through Reparations . . .

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.

Obama Says . . .

In an article written by Aris Folley this morning, he discusses what Former President Obama says relative to “reparations” for Black Americans. If you have not read it, “Obama Says . . .

The Black Americans seeking such reparations seem to fail to realize that the Black Man did not get to where he is today by himself. White men have fought for racial equality and defended “Civil Rights” for all Americans for at least as long as the Black Man has. Agreed, not all White men have supported such, but Obama was not elected to office soley by the Black vote. And contrary to the belief of many Black Americans, there is a large populace of non-racist White people here in America. And if you are Black and are not familiar with the term “N***** Lover” then you need to go back to the past when White men showing support for racial equality were shunned by other Whites for showing such support and subjected to abuse and ridicule. How many White people have lost their lives fighting for racial equality and defended Civil Rights for all of America?

Every time the Black man has marched, protested, or committed an act of civil disobedience, White men in support have been there. And many more in support have been there in the background casting votes and serving to support most Black causes. At least more than 50% of White America has stood in support of equality and civil rights or no progress would have been made over the past 50 years. The Black Man did nothing alone. Black people seem eager to believe they have suffered something White man hasn’t. Not true! Slaves over one hundred years ago suffered the reality of slavery, none alive today has such experience. What Black people alive today have experienced is racism and civil rights abuses.but if you think about it we as a Nation were enjoying the best racial harmony we have ever had just this past couple years, prior to the incident of George Floyd. Sure there were minor incidents on occaission.but it seemred as though people of all races were getting along and showing respect for one another.

Presently there is tension between the races. And now talk of reparations. I personally have never owned a slave. I have never treated people of color any differently than anybody else. And over the years I have observed that this separatuion that everyone claims is by race, isn’t by race at all. There is a social divide in this Nation of those of wealth and those with less. White priveledge is not an all whites thing, it is a “select Whites and others as they acquire such level of wealth” type of thing. A significant portion of the White population suffers the same abuse that Black people suffer. Yes, there are White people that get followed by security when entering stores, that are pulled over by police when passing through certain neighborhoods, get treated like crap when dealing with County services and the Courts. We get our asses beat down by the cops unless we surrender easily, and we die sometimes while in the custody of others. My point is, THERE IS NOTHING BLACK PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING THAT ISN’T ALSO BEING SUFFERED BY THE OTHER RACES. So when the cry “Black lives matter” or “Reparations” goes out we ask, “What the F***”, “What about us?”

The next consideration we have to deal with is equality. It does not appear as though Blacks want equality, but superiority. Not all Blacks, but a bunch of those in the public eye. We have had a Black President. Now a woman Vice-President, and numerous other politicians. Forty percent of America’s Black population is considered middle class. The equality of the Black man has progressed quite a bit.

Racism is money! Somebody is making money off racism, and they promote racism by their existance. When you support one race over another, develope programs race specific, or give to some without giving the same to others, you have succeeded in creating racism If you want to stop racism, you need good men of all races to manage your services, your law enforcement, your courts, and your communities by looking beyond color to treat all fairly and support all fairly. We have to quit giving to skin color and give to people that need equally and fairly. And we as a populace of this great Nation have to mature to look beyond skin color.

Reparations bill tests Biden and Harris on racial justice

That is the headline to an article in POLITICO a few minutes ago. As this movement gains momentum, I have a few questions:

  • Reparations for my family members who gave their lives freeing the slaves?
  • Are there any of those enslaved alive today?
  • Have any Blacks been denied jobs or promotion, given to an unqualified White man instead?
  • Have any White people been attacked by Black people just for being White?
  • Haven’t White people been treated just as poorly by Police and Government as Blacks?
  • When anything is given to one race, where does it come from?
  • Isn’t “Reparations” just a continuation of racism.
  • How do you end racism?

Some people see this reparations bill as a positive act, but is it really? My family members gave their lives fighting to free the slaves. To date, I have not ever heard or seen any Black people give acknowledgement or even a thank you for my relatives contribution. Actually, my whole life I have supported equality of the races. It is a good thing I have done so without expectation of anything in return as not even a thank you offered. To this very day I still support equality of the races but cannot support this bill because it is an insult to my family members that paid the higher cost in giving their lives, and now you expect me to pony up the tax money for this? NO THANK YOU!

Are their any of the Blacks enslaved still living today? If there are, pay them. They lived the abuse, the lack of freedom, and true injustice. Slavery still exists in America, but it is not just Blacks enslaved. People of all colors are being subjected to slavery by people of all colors today. Black people were not brought to America as free men. They were bought as slaves from people of their own color as slaves and brought to America. This is when the wrong-doing was committed. If their are any of those enslaved still alive, please pay them immediately so they might enjoy such payment in their last days.

The term “affirmative action” was first introduced by President Kennedy in 1961 as a method of redressing discrimination that had persisted in spite of civil rights laws and constitutional guarantees. It was developed and enforced for the first time by President Johnson. While there was numerous benefit provided the Black man, such benefit was taken from the White man. Jobs that White men qualified for were given to unqualified Black men. Promotions were given to Black men ahead of White men of higher qualification. College seats were taken from White students with a high gpa and given to Black students with a lower gpa. And this is why any action that gives to one race at the expense of another does not do anything but create additional racism. First thing you must understand is affirmative action did not and does not affect the affluent. Do you want more info on Affirmative Action? See Affirmative Action Laws: Everything You Need to Know

I have never attacked anybody for being a different color than myself, but I have been attacked for being White. How do I know I was attacked because I am White? Because just before I had bricks and rocks thrown at me, one of those throwing such hollered to the others “He’s White! Twice during my life I have been approached by Black men with intent to rob me. I do not know of anyone attempting robbery of a Black person. I know violence against Black people has happened, I believe some Black people have been subjected to racial violence and in some instances such violence observed by many. But, has racial violence by Blacks against all of the other races been of higher incidents.

Claims that Black people are treated worse than the other races by Government, Police, and other agency are simply exagerated data. Most claims use the data that says the Black population in America is 13%, which is true. But only 12 States have a significant Black population. And in those States the Black population is anywhere from 23 to 60 percent of the population. People in America fail to look beyond skin color in this situation. If they were to do so they would note that economics plays the biggest role, as people of this economic group, regardless of color are treated like crap by everybody, including their own. What is the difference between the Black and White races when being arrested by Police? Simple: Blacks act the fool or resist. White people that do the same get their asses beat too. This is a decision made by the person being arrested regardless of color. George Floyd and Oscar Grant did not end up getting killed because they complied. And, in both cases their death was not by intentional act by Police. Neither of these men should be dead today, but still you have to ask the question, “How did he end up on the ground.”

When you give to one race and take from another, do you create fairness or racism? Again, use economics instead of skin color as the problem. Your lower income neighborhoods probably have a good mixture of races, believe it or not. All of similar income. Now give something to one race and not another, what do you have? History is already full of such acts. Do you think there are more Blacks suffering anything more than others? Open your eyes, look around you, see the reality of life today. Giving to one and not the other creates a whole new racism. Reparations will likely create a whole bunch of racism.

How do you stop racism. You treat people as equals regardless any of the applicable factors. There was a news story a short while back in which a White youngster got his ass whooped by a Black guy for repeatedly using the term “My Ni****.” This was inappropriate as Blacks made talking like this acceptable and the White kid must have been mentally suffering to think himself cool acting like that. The Black guy should of just walked away and another White guy should of stepped up and slapped the kid down. For more on this topic, read CanYouBeReal.com
