Al Sharpton Calls For for Government Mandated ‘Spoils’ Redistribution Based on Black Populations

REV AL’S RACIAL REDISTRIBUTION RACKET: Calls for Government Mandated ‘Spoils’ Redistribution Based on Black Populations

I'm not sure what ol' Al is talking about for sure. It SOUNDS to me like he's saying that if the black population is 5% of a town, then 5% of the business contracts should be mandated to go to black owned business'. (is that what he said??) I have never heard of open capitalism and an open market system refered to as 'spoils' before. And I've never heard of the government mandating that a percentage of business MUST be done with black owned business. They might have .. but I haven't heard of mandating it. Getting tax breaks for using minority business .. yes. But mandating?


Doesnt' capitalism mean that the person with the best product and best marketing skills gets the most business and the most $$? Doesn't free market mean that if you put out a poor product then it FAILS instead of being propped up by the government through mandates that people have to use your piss-poor product instead of the one that they really want? (bailouts of the car companies recently are anti-capitalism, but that's not what I'm talking about .. no one is mandating the purchase of those cars).

So ... Gov't laws to use certain business based upon the race of the owner? More marxist wealth redistribution .. racist in nature ... that's my take on this (if I'm reading what he's saying correctly). Countrywide? Wonder if the Obama administration would go for it. hmmmm ..... [

Sharpton is part of what's wrong with the black community. People like him have made a career of telling poor black folks that they can't do anything because of white people, that they simply can't get ahead on their own merits and skills. Sharpton calls the black community useless and incapable with rhetoric like this. He thinks they are so useless that the only way, in his mind, that the black community can get ahead is to have government steal from others, mandate that we go only to black businesses, and redistribute wealth because they can't do this on their own.

If I were a Black man I'd be insulted.

I've known many successful black men who look at Sharpton like the communist useless eater he is. No one should really pay any attention to this piece of crap. He does the fight for civil rights a disservice every time his mouth opens.

Yes, but at the federal level it is "minority business" and not just "black businesses ...

Now the minority businesses are businesses majority owned by African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asian Pacific Americans, Asian Indians, Sri Lankans,Tongans and Indonesians.

My good sir. You are obviously a racist for suggesting these things. And that you go on to say "You know black people" et al, Ha I laugh at your disingenuous technique.

/end popular rant on ATS these days,

I AGREE with you man 100%, I've been saying the same things since 94 on usenet, and been called all sorts of hate by utter left wing nutjobs who make it their life to seek out anything other than submission and guilt and call it hatered and cause.

A man who is told over and over that he is no good, is no good. A man who is fed a fish for a day, relied on a fish every day. A man who does not look to others to survive, is going to surpass the prior men. Simple.

the same thing is going on today.

Maybe in 20 more years time, people will reconsider the things that were mocked today and ask... "How the F! did we let that happen..."

Then again, Im all greased up for some fallout 3 fun.. Screw new vegas, its the same thing, different actors.

Well anyhoo, at least you know whats what..

First off his use of the word "spoils" really shows what kind of mind we are dealing with here.

Having said that many whites wouldnt hire a black guy to do pluming in there home even if he were the best at it. Oh maybe over time if the guy comes highly recomended but even then most would rather hire a white guy if the black mans price wasnt cheeper.

The auto thing was a organized labor in bed with government thing. But the race issue is another.

In all fairness any former slave deserves reparations. That being said,since there are no living former slaves. Anyone expecting reparations should have to prove a 100% African lineage to a former slave,with a 15% deduction in the reparations per generational distance from the former slave. Now that would be fair would it not ?

While this happens I do think it is much more common for a black person to hire another black person or a hispanic to hire another hispanic over a white person. White racists are a dying breed.

To me Sharpton is a racist and if anything his bigoted attitude is hurting the his race.

I expect to get that response eventually too. But unlike my friends on the left I've done the research to support my claims. The ideology this mans holds on to today was responsible for the creation and perpetuation of the ghetto. It's sick that he doesn't realize that the people he campaigns for, the policies he supports, are the reason that the ghetto and the enslavement of the black community continues to this day. People like him don't know they're Uncle Tom. They pander to the slave master. The proof is in pudding.

Even during the early Progressive Era, where much of this started, Progressive politicians, "social justice"(term has been around a while) people, would pander to the black community, promise them the world. Woodrow Wilson, the most famous racist in presidential history did just that to get elected. The black community took him to his word and gave him their vote.

He continued to lie, even after his election, to deflect blame for insults to the black community like the segregation of the Armed Forces, the expulsion of all blacks from holding a job with the Federal Government, and his support for the zoning agenda that created the ghetto we know and love today.

These people haven't gone away. Today the same progressive movement uses morons like Al Sharpton to spread their message of global socialism, wealth redistribution, and slavery under the clever moniker of "Social Justice". The man responsible for the fame Sharpton enjoys today, Martin Luther King Jr. would have scoffed at this idea. MLK Jr. believed in EQUAL JUSTICE. He believed in EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW. Not social engineering, state sponsored theft, and welfare dependency...

People like Sharpton have shattered King's dream.

OWED?!



Not only is Sharpton one of the most racist men in America, He is one of the stupidest racist men I have ever listened to speak.

ya he is a racist POS in fact as long as People like Al Sharpton exists, racism will exist as well, in people like al sharpton's head its all the white man's doing.
Seriously this is how these idiots think. Oh not to mention this moron, is a crook, and got caught not paying taxes. The guy is just a crook and quite frankly makes money making it sound like black people are dumb and stupid, and need a crook like Sharpton, to basically create racial drama. Once again turning to tribe vs tribe I believe is a instinct of survival I suppose. A Very primitive one at that..

Ahhhhhh, the sweet smell of America with a "post-racial" president at the helm.

I truly wonder if he would be doing this if McCain had won.

Just idle speculation on my part. . . . .

This guy is a disgrace. He has made his money bamboozling the liberal pandering government, and keeping blacks down, and feeding them a "owed" and "blame whitey" mentality, to get handouts and not try. It's sad, and it's sick that many in power give him respect that he doesn't deserve. He has spat all over the unifing ideals of MLK, he's a shuckster.

It would be really interesting to wonder,.
Just what if the boats never left Africa,.
And slavery was never started in the states,.
How would the those that cant seem to get past history
claim to be owed

He may not understand that he is being used or didnt at first. The PTB have a large pot boiling and Al is just one of the tools they stir it with.

Sharpton is the single worst travesty to the black american population that has happened since the KKK.

This guy exploits his own people for his own wealth.

People like Dr.King were assasinated , while men like this still jack their jaws, and destroy everything good men and women of the civil rights movement worked for.

The black people need to stand up and shut down people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

I dont know a single african american person that likes either of these two, so i KNOW there has to be a lot more where they came from.

They need to be blackballed

No it wouldnt be fair. You should see the minority, just for being, aid college students get for just being minority already.

Taking money from my white ass would just be a sin. My GD worked in the mines from before he was 14. I saw it on an old census doing research. Thats back in pick and shovel days all the way up untill he was an old man. I used to go down there as a boy and have been around and all over the world and have never seen black folks that lived any worse off than my dads world. When my dad left the mine fields and moved to the big city he might as well have been a first generation immigrant. I was the first one in all that time to see a kid graduate college and she had to work full time all the way and owes some amount of loans yet whiel most of the black kids she went to college with had most or all of their college paid for. My son is in college now and gets most of his paid due to his brain. Georgetown wanted him to play football and go to school there but he didnt. if he had it would have been 4 generations from coal mine to Georgetown and 6 generations from WVA log cabin, 1827, in one of the most remote places in WVA to Georgetown. So some guy wants reparations from me? Do you see what a joke it is? They have to do what I did and break the cycle and its much easier for them to do it today than it was for me and mine.

See I agree with you.I believe that you make your own breaks,just like your son has. If you look at the stipulations I figured for reparations.It has been 145 years since 1865 take that as a starting point.Figure a generation at 20 years,that is 7+ generations x 15% that will place you at a -5% of reparations.
