Reparations? I've been paying them all my life through affirmative action, through high taxation, through the cost of policing and prisons. Now, let me be clear. I'm an immigrant’s son. I have never taken a nickel from a slave. My family has never profited from slavery. Black people did not build anything that my family profited from ever, despite what the leftist vermin want to want you to believe. They’re telling you we all benefited from it?
Now let's look into this reparations lie. There are some rich white families who have profited from slavery and if people have grievances, that's who they should go to. There are corporations who may have initially profited from slavery. That's who they should go to. The King of Spain profited greatly from slavery. The Arabian Kings profited greatly from slavery. Let them go to the King of Spain, and the Arabian Princes, and take the money from them. Good luck.
But I, as an American, an immigrant’s son, never kept a slave, never benefited from slavery. We worked our behinds off. Now, one of the biggest lies ever promulgated by the Black Revisionist historians is the reparation lie. It is an absolute lie to say that black slavery built America. Well, that's like saying the Chinese who were conscripted to build a railroad, built California. Well, they didn't build California, they built the railroad tracks. Moreover, you never hear the Chinese screaming for reparations. When have you last heard the Chinese screaming that someone owes them something?
If it is true that their antecedents were virtual slaves, building the railroads in California, how is it that the Chinese of today have done so well in America? Two generations later, you don't hear them screaming that anybody owes them anything. They decided to make it on their own through hard work and brains.
I could say I am owed reparations for what I have paid. I encourage you to fight back. I have had jobs stolen from me as a result of affirmative action where unqualified minorities were given positions I was more qualified for.
The balance sheet is not complete. I am owed money. I don't owe anybody anything. I am an immigrant's son. How about your children not being given scholarships, but instead being given to minorities who did not score as high as they did? Think about it. Stand up to the left wing and fight back. Do you think it can’t happen under Biden? Look around. It is happening.
Until we stop the reparations rackateers, we will be reliving the nightmare so many populations have lived before us. All promised a utopia free from the oppression of capitalism and the nuclear family. We have seen this arc, beginning with the French Revolution to the American leftist revolution. It has morphed from climate hysteria to racial hysteria. In order to defeat them we must fight their ideas.
