If some doofus is going to pay to buy my drinkee, I'm just nice enough to let 'em!!

Simple mixed drink, please. I enjoy a good kamikaze.

Is this really that much of a much? It's silly, I'll grant you that, but much more than that, not so sure.

If 10 dollars is all it takes to get these people to stop whining about a past they never experienced, I'll happily chip in. That's a helluva deal!

Imagine how the actual slaves from the past would perceive this deal...

Reparations are the most reformist liberal hush money attempt, it is laughable

The island I live on was occupied by the nazis during WW2. Most of our ancient trees were cut down for fuel due to shipping embargoes, and pets disappeared once the starvation set in. Life was incredibly hard.

Now, this didn't affect me personally, I wasn't even born, but if any of our German members fancy buying me a pint(s) to say sorry, that'd be great.

Ridiculous.

I don’t understand why “people of color” is an alright term, but “colored people” is offensive. Gotta love the semantics.

As for buying people drinks, based solely on their race, that is, by definition, racism. Of course, the regressives don’t understand what that word means, unless they’re using it to attack people.

Are they falling for this old trick once again?


It funny. There seems to be no thought on that. We've pretty much swept that under the rug and forgot it.

They didn't pick my fields, so I'll pass on buying these idiots any drinks.


Not much to pick in fields of rock and ice.

What is really funny is the picture for this story...



I wonder if the irony has hit them....


The irony hit them alright. It looks like they were hit in the face with an iron.

I have bought countless drinks for women of color. Sometimes it worked out quite nicely.





I see less racism in bars and honky tonks than I see on ATS.
So have I, and do so now. The thing is, I did so out of friendship or good convos with a community member, not because they are poc or a woman. And, they buy me drinks.

Add me to DB's gofundme. We have the same tastes in drinks. IPAs and bourbon for life!

Thanks, yeah. If there is one thing I agree with conservatives on, it's that identity politics and social justice has gone off the rails.

agree. I had the same thoughts recently. It's absurd semantics.

There are some of us that have worked with Native American tribes on various development and justice programs. But yes, too often In the US native Americans are forgotten. Which is bad, because they actually have higher rates of poverty, non communicable diseases, and high school drop out than other minorities.

Maybe it is just me, but I always thought that the only reparation that can make up for slavery is freedom.
