My grandfather came to this country to work in the copper mines, after that, he bought some land with the money he saved and started a farm and
produced food for the people of the towns around him. He never got rich, he barely survived. He was a Finn, not a black person. My father worked
hard to make a living, so did my mother, so did I. My father was a POW and had a disability from serious injuries he had fighting in world war 2. He
got little reimbursement for the lifelong pain he had from the shrapnal they could not take out of his body. None of us got rich. If a black person
worked as hard as my father, two jobs plus the farm, they would have made just as much in our area. Why should we give a bonus for black people? If
we did not export all the jobs overseas, we would have plenty of jobs for everyone working in factories. But no, Clinton and some other high ranking
government officials decided to make this a consumer based society and they screwed up. Not everyone is a rocket scientist, Factories have lots of
job openings for people not so smart. Now what do they do? They get disability checks or subsidized jobs and they cannot have a meaninful life,
stuck on assistance.
Don't feel sorry for the Blacks, I do not think their ancestors got a good rap, but the blacks today could go out out and get a decent paying Factory
job if they existed, working right along side white people. The Democrats were more towards getting China to build our stuff, but some Republicans
also were too, congressmen who got rewarded for backing imports.
They talk about combatting global warming, if we made stuff here in America that lasted longer, it might be a little more expensive but our emissions
are better than China's and if stuff was a little more expensive we would not buy all the crappy junk that plagues our landfills. But the global
warming people say tax everything when we could cut consumption and create jobs for our people by making good stuff here.
More black people would have better jobs if we had more factories, so would more white people. We us workers are all in the same game. The rules do
not apply to the elite, and the elite come up with some of the stupidest solutions sometimes. How is giving reparations going to help blacks, it will
only stir up jealousy and hate from the white lower income people who with their ancestors in this country worked hard at their jobs for the good of
the people and to make a living.
The only ones I feel need to be reimbursed, which they are, is the Native Americans because we stole their lands and shoved them onto reservations and
continue to rip them off by digging under their reservations to get minerals or run over their land with pipelines. They deserve their money, the
Blacks are just like us, brought over here to work and fight wars. Rich kids usually did not have to fight in wars, they got stationed in areas that
usually got little action or got off because they had money for college. In this country all citizens are supposed to be equal, how is giving black
people money going to make the common white worker feel, people who destroy their body every day trying to make a living. Not all the slaves were
treated badly, and not all white people those days were treated good either, everyone had to work hard to make ends meet just as many of Americans
these days do.
