but let's remember that slaves actually did get paid in the form of food, clothes, housing and medical care.
Deduct that from the big fat check you are envisioning for yourself.
LOL! I'm still waiting to get the names of the recipients I'll be writing those checks for. They may have to wait a while though, cause I first have to get off of my WALL STREET financial tower to mingle through the crowd of protestors so as to first hand them the checks they so rightly deserve. You slave wannabes will just have to wait in line behind the rest of the gang before receiving those tax funded entitlements.
I agree with this 100% .. Send them back to Africa if they want to go.
What a completely ignorant comment. Let's see, you rape and pillage a nation, take their people, steal all their resources, install military bases. Use the stolen people as free labour for hundreds of years, when they rebel and over throw you you want to send them back to the nation you destroyed. No, it doesn't work like that. You made your bed, now sleep in it.
