Professor: Some Calls For Reparations Don’t Go Far Enough

“Nothing short of a massive transfer of wealth from the developed to the underdeveloped world, and to the descendants of slavery and colonialism in the west, can heal the deep wounds inflicted…”

    Germany paid massive reparations after WW1. The last payment was made October 3rd 2010 (there were some payment interruptions). It really made reconciliation work, and was much appreciated by those born after the end of the war.

  • Killer Marmot

    We could carry out this massive wealth transference tomorrow.

    In a few generations, things would be back to how they are now. The recipients would have squandered their wealth, the so-called “oppressors” would have regenerated theirs.

    That’s because a society’s wealth is constantly trying to dissipate, and can be maintained only by the talent, hard work, and attitudes of its citizens.

  • ontario john

    Does that mean muslim countries have to make up most of the wealth transfer?? They were key players in the slave trade past and present.

    • Clausewitz

      They also are basically the only countries still practising slavery today. According to the Shiny Pony I should be imprisoned for bringing up this fact.

        Denounce yourself and report for reeducation tomorrow morning!

  • Alain

    The only true and valid reparation, assuming one is due, can only be paid to those who underwent whatever the injustice was considered to be. Otherwise is useless virtual signalling while throwing away money that belongs to o the tax payers. The same applies to apologising to the generations born later in a different world and different time.

      Hey professor, not you Alain.
      The one word for today is Rhodesia.
      The two words for ten years from now are South Africa.

      • Tom Forsythe

        The mainstream press hasn’t said anything about South Africa, in years. I assume the economy really took off, after the sanctions were lifted, and blacks and whites are getting along well, as a result of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

        Right?

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          You must be absolutely correct.

        • Exile1981

          Their is a thriving import business for used tires in south africa…

    • Clausewitz

      Show me a slave that one of my ancestors oppressed and I’ll gladly pay up. In my family tree the only people that suffered at the hands of my folks were the Acadians. On my mother’s side they all came from Scotland during the land clearances during the 1700’s, and pushed out the Acadian’s in the Annapolis Valley in NS. So in reality the folks in Louisiana have more of a claim to reparations than “slaves” who came to Canada from the US. Remember folks the under ground railway had their terminus in Canada.

      • tom_billesley

        The settlement of New England Planters and United Empire Loyalists preceded that of most of the people displaced by the Highland clearances (which didn’t really get going until after the Napoleonic Wars). There weren’t that many settlers from Scotland until the early 19th century. Some of the earlier settlers from Scotland were fleeing persecution of Catholics that happened in the years following the 1745 Jacobite rebellion. .

        • Clausewitz

          Lucky us, we were unique.

      • Exile1981

        My ancestors were acadians who were forced off their land and settled in the US. Then a few generations later moved out west then back up into Canada.

        • Clausewitz

          Sorry. Anyone left from the 1768 Aylesford clearance of Acadians? I think I owe them a few beers.

          • Exile1981

            I’m not sorry. If your ancestors hadn’t driven mine off and stolen their land I’d have likely grown up in eastern vs western Canada and never have met my wife.

            Every event has consequences. All those decendence of slaves can bitch about slavery while living in an Air conditioned apartment and talking on their cell phones….. but if their ancestors hadn’t been slaves they very likely would never have been born.

  • Clausewitz

    Bill Whittle gets it right yet again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7Pst_3xlX0

  • Blacksmith

    Just to be clear those of African decent want others (whites) to pay them reparations fro them being sold as slaves by other Africans? Piss off! go tell your ancestral home to pay you.
    Here’s another point, they say Africa was the cradle of civilization and everything started there. Then since they were first they should be ahead of every other race on the planet, all races being equal like they insist.

    • tom_billesley

      Since certain African countries lost part of their human resources, perhaps we could make reparation in kind, by sending back the descendants of those ripped from the bosom of their nation. However it didn’t work so well with Liberia and Sierra Leone.

      • Blacksmith

        So we do it like the leftist so socialism, we keep trying until we get it right or can’t try anymore (by running out of those to repatriate).

      I know, eh?

  • Drunk by Noon ✓

    I’m going to give voice to my better angels right now and just say that these racial justice proclamations ALMOST seem as if they were written with the purpose of being a recruitment tool of Nazis and White supremacists.
    I mean each one is more nutty and unrealistic than the previous unworkable idea that they are supposed to top.
    Has anyone else had that same thought?

    • Blacksmith

      But who is doing the writing and recruiting?

      • Drunk by Noon ✓

        I just don’t know.
        I’m probably overthinking it, and they are all just retarded.
        What they are inadvertently doing is making very good arguments for their entire racial extermination far more eloquently than any Nazi I have ever heard because they frame it in extreme “them” or “us” terms where if it’s not THEM it will have to be us, and we will not willingly choose our own deaths.

        • Blacksmith

          We have been railing against western suicide for years so no I will not willingly go to my own death.

        • Exile1981

          Its more likely that they are so greedy and corrupt they don’t realize that all they are doing is building the gallows for their own demise.
          If they had asked for reduced college tuition 90% of voters would have agreed as it helps them get ahead and join society.

          What they demand is the destruction of our culture of success through hard work and replacing it with their culture of success through corruption and theft.

          Anyone with a working brain can see that their demand is inevitably a death sentence for whites.

  • Ed

    Easy come easy go, eh professor? You get paid to do squat, why shouldn’t they?

  • canminuteman

    I am a descendant of colonialism in the west!!! Who do I get my reparations from?

  • Gary

    Good…. they can start in Mekkah with the Saudi’s oil money because islam ran the slave trade in Africa so A-Holes like Al Sharpton and Don Lemon could be here and look like fools on TV .

  • canminuteman

    They were offered it after the civil war. I understand that anyone who wanted got an all expenses paid trip back to to Africa where the state of Liberia was created just for them. It’s now a thriving successful place when politicians only occasionally resort to eating their opponents.

  • richard

    In 25 words or less, can someone explain to me why we are “developed,” while other parts of the world continue to be “underdeveloped,” in spite of years of aid and other assistance?

    • The Deplorable Rosenmops

      Because those undeveloped countries are populated by people with a lower average IQ. They are also very corrupt. Some places es such as China and Russia are also very corrupt but are better off because the people aren’t as stupid, on average.

      It doesn’t help that there is a sort of brain drain out of Africa, with almost anyone who manages to get an education leaving.

    • They’re only undeveloped in comparison to the West. Remove the West and they’re state of the art.

  • Cyclist

    I guessed a sociology professor. I guessed correctly.

  • Hard Little Machine

    We send billions of dollars to the developing world each year after year. Sadly it’s often wasted by corruption. A country without the civic institutions necessary for governance will never make anything of handouts.

  • Dis

    Since so many black people were killed as slaves by mean and nasty white people a century ago, what about holding mass executions of random white people now to help salve this terrible wound further and make currently living mean and nasty black people happier?! Actually, I can see this as a logical next step, and so I probably shouldn’t be suggesting it…

  • Tom Forsythe

    Poverty isn’t the lack of wealth, it is the inability to create it. Imagine taking the entire population of New York, settling them in Haiti, and vice versa.

    In five years, Haiti would be an international business hub, entertainment capital, and fashion center. New York would become a slum.

  • DVult

    Start by sending this guy’s money elsewhere.

  • Mark DeFord Eletion

    The white race doesn’t owe the black race anything, but I might welcome reparations, if it means the black population must begin giving back the welfare money it received from whites for more than a generation.
