Thread: Is it time to admit that bringing Africans to America was a mistake?

    Is it time to think that maybe we should undo the mistake?

    The descendents of African slaves often ask us to pay them reparations for the harm we did to their ancestors.

    I say let's do just that.

    Reparations:

    1) A one-way ticket to the African nation of your choice, on the condition that you surrender your U.S. passport, renounce your U.S. citizenship, and promise never to return to the United States.

    2) A one time payment of $20,000 to get you started in your new life in Africa.

    Discuss.
    How about sending back the Italians, Irish,Chinese and Jews for their murderous gang activities? No? Why? Oh, I know, because they aren't black.

    As a double agent for the Obamanation he has to take the heat off of those that said the racial profiling and felony assault of an innocent man was not a civil rights violation and the perpetrator did nothing wrong.

    Once Europeans had barged in it was a case of, "There goes the neighbourhood."


    - but it's nothing that mass deportation won't solve.

    The Atlantic Slave Trade was definitely a major mistake, but it's not specifically because the people were African. It's because any forced mass migration of people to a new land for slavery purposes leaves a long legacy of disenfranchisement for that group that affects society for centuries later.

    You'll notice that the countries that ended slavery earlier and had fewer slaves to begin with generally have fewer crime problems than us. Because of slavery, segregation, and the unintended consequences of the War on Poverty, we're left with a situation that can really only be undone by blacks themselves.

    More government intervention just causes more problems oftentimes.

    A shorter term solution is just finding somewhere else to live. Canada seems to have less racial tension in general than America, for example.

    The same goes for Australia.

    And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions.
    Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is."

    The Atlantic Slave trade began to provide labor for the Sugar plantations in Brazil.. The economic boom was in sugar and rum.

    Of course, but all that focus on economic gains ignored the long term costs to society of oppressing a race of people and leaving future generations to deal with the crisis of conscience of deciding how to right past wrongs.

    Please answer the very simple question in my sig.

    Thanks.
