    Yeah, Progressives don't get their talking points from media. They just develop their own personal theories .. which happen to align precisely with the theories held by media.

    what do you think about the fact that
    Ukraine is the epicenter of the sex slave trade. You can even buy babies there for £10,000.

    You can save bunch of money by switching to Africa, where you can buy a baby for £20!
    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-55250431

    And in Africa you can buy slaves for sex or work:

    Don't listen to Ukrainian competition, sex slaves and babies in Africa are better and cheaper!

    Anyone who receives reparations from the government should then be sent to the country of their ancestors birth. They obviously don't like living in America.

    at this point? -I am still waiting for him to prove that people from Portugal were the real victims of the African slave trade (when in reality Portugal essentially started that activity before Columbus sailed to the New World).

    Because their ancestors were oppressed by bringing them here. By claiming reparations, they are upset that their ancestors were brought here. It only makes sense that we shouldn't make the same mistake with them as well.

    Besides, I haven't oppressed anybody and if I am going to be forced to give money to someone who didn't earn it, I want assurances that it won't happen again.

    It will also be a major SNAFU. Do I get a discount on my paid reparations for my black daughter in law and mixed race grandchildren? Do recipients have to prove they are descendants of slaves? What about black people with slave owning ancestors? It will just lead to more division.

    I have no idea who ran the slave ships. Was it Americans? Who in Africa sold them into slavery? I'm not saying it was right to be involved in slavery, but are black Americans today better off than their counterparts in the land where their ancestors were born? Slavery was wrong and done with the wrong motives, but black people in America today are much better off for it. Why do Americans now have to pay them? We didn't do anything wrong.

    years ago, a man I knew through his son who was my suite mate in college wrote an influential opinion piece concerning the fall of the soviet union. This writer, the late great moderate David Broder-Noted that when the soviet union evaporated, the American left-that spent 80 years trying to turn the USA into a USSR-turned their attention to balkanizing the USA into groups of warring ethnic special interest groups. Reparations is just one of the examples of this effort

    How about some reparations for the families of the white Union soldiers who fought to set them free? And will the Siberian American tribes who owned slaves will have to pay reparations?

    Anyone would be better served by not expecting a handout and getting a job like the rest of us have to do.

    Do you expect black people to give the rest of society reparations because they are so over represented in violent crimes against other races?

    I mean since you want to keep track of things and add them up it's only fair right?

    When you give someone that they did not earn you cheapen them.
