Should descendants of people whom immigrated to the US AFTER 1865 ALSO have to pay into this reparation fund?

But you couldn’t tax black people to pay for their own reparations so tax cuts would have to go in effect based on skin color.

Which sounds really racist.


It sounds to me that tanning salons might be a great investiment if this was the case.


Barack Obama taxed many of those out of existence, to pay for ObamaCare.

A statue is a likeness of something produced in a solid medium. If that likeness offends, it's because you bring your own baggage to it. You're letting it trigger you. Basically, show us where the bad statue touched your fragile psyche.

Whatever your racial background, the Civil War and the issues surrounding it are important lessons to learn. Everything reminiscent of that time is an opportunity for us to never forget and to learn from it, and not just the lessons the left wants everyone to learn too.

You cannot think that if you project hard enough, you'll scrub all the sin from the past. It doesn't work that way. The past was a different time lived with different mores than we live today. You have to confront it, learn from it, and make your peace with it. Then you can move forward with making today a better place.

To fund reparations how about we tax the main group still making money from modern day constitutional slavery, private prisons?

I wonder, do the brave folks who risked their lives helping escaping slaves figure into reparations...if so, I want my check, because I had ancestors that helped run an Underground Railroad route into Canada.


Do Irish and Chinese slaves count too? Will everyone get taxed on this, or just the families that had slaves? Will descendants of the Anthony Johnson family have to give money or receive it?

They have to determine all family history from vetted records and of course, DNA samples.

All payouts and receiving is pro-rated by percentage of owner/slave heritages (many people have mixed heritages in this scope). Military ancestry is also considered (for example, a person with one 6x Great Grandfather who fought in the Union Army and was killed would get a payment reduction if the Ancestor was White, and if the Ancestor was Black and a slave, the amount received would be increased unless the same living person also had an Ancestor in the Confederate Army who was a full blooded Cherokee or other Native American or Black and a Freed Slave or a Slave owner in which case(s) a Court would need to settle the entire mess because all scenarios are possible.

This is the only fair way 😎

I'll name it a "Skin Maintenance Clinic" and give to the local Political Party. That should allow me to avoid those taxes.

What about states that didn't exist in 1865?
There were only 36 at the time.

Shouldn't residents in the other 14 states be exempt from paying into and recieving reparations?


Imagine the potential lawsuits.

What about white Americans with any black ancestors?
Do we get cut a check too?

Obviously all migration records would need to be examined and verified and court certified.

All scenarios and possibilities would be exacted by percentage rounded to the nearest 1/100th of each One Percent 😎

Laws and penalties need to be legislated to prevent any cheating and scams 😎

If you’ve ever laughed during the movie “Blazing Saddles”then you have to pay.

Every case is pro-rated by certified court hearings 😎

Even Blacks with White Ancestors 😎

The Problem comes when they discover people with Black ancestors who owned White Irish slaves 😎

Many cases will get challenged and final determinations made by the Supreme Court as long as no Justices have any conflicts of interests.

Looks like the government will need to get itself a huge new Department Of Reparations (DOR)...with a Reparations Czar and thousands of brand new bureaucrats.

The Jussie Smollett/Blazing Saddles recently made its rounds, a lot of people are set to pay. Do black people pay reparations to themselves? Do taxpaying Black Americans pay into the tax?

What about those who have both slave owners and slaves in their family trees? Do they pay themselves?

What about people who "Self-Identify"
as a slave? Do they get anything, and if not can they protest?

The laws would need to demand that all DOR appointees and employees have an equal balance of all possible scenarios otherwise the Department could not function without prejudice. Also, the Buildings and land and contractors used would have to be declared equal Reparationists and pass a certification test and receive continuing education.😎
