    The POTUS admittedly had a big week. Bursting with confidence and watching the clock, will Reparations be next on the agenda?

    Anyone alive who has been a slave gets reparations.

    Everyone else can get a j-o-b.

    Needs further study.

    Let's give every citizen of Detroit a half-million dollars and see what happens over the next five years.

    Did you know that there were more IRISH slaves in the US than black? I heard this the other day. Might be true.

    From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.

    During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.

    I'm all for giving anyone who wants reparations 40 acres and a mule IN AFRICA. I'd even spring for a 1 way ticket once they surrender their passport.

    I want reparations for paying more to golf the last two months since the urban course I play was unsafe. Bodymore riots cost me $200. Where's my money???

    There is no one alive today who was a slave. There are VERY few people alive today who had grandparents that were slaves. Fuck them.

    Same with my people but from Poland and Lithuania.
    People whose ancestors were here during the slave days should pay up.
