The Culture DEMANDS, financial compensation for Slavery, there are no Slaves they have passed away into history. Compensation for Decade upon decade upon decades of discrimination is quite another issue. I have a living memory of Whites-Only or Coloreds-Only signs in store windows. I have a living memory when Colored people, after midnight could not cross the rail-road tracks into the White side of town.
I remembered at, their Culture lived it.

Racists usually aren't shy and bashful. They tell you what they think. Of course it's usually in private, because they assume you are like them. So I thought of a way to end the mystery and stop the hate.
If a person identifies as "racist" they feel they are superior to others based on their skin color, or some other natural characteristic, encourage them to embrace it. Be proud of who you are. But wear a hat. If you are a racist, be a damn good one. And let others know how good you are at it. a hat with a "burning cross" on it would do nicely. that or a noose. Just a universal symbol so everyone who sees it will immediately recognize it. The benefit will be twofold. Racists will be able to identify others of like mind, and they can congregate, tell jokes about how "everyone should own one" or something equally as amusing, while the rest of the world can go on about their lives, doing normal things and no longer worrying that because they have white skin, they are assumed to be racist or privileged. Black folk who are racist can have their hats as well, and congregate with other like minded people.
This isn't segregation, it's allowing communities to be built, and people who think alike to be together. We as a society have slipped far away from were we were on course to go. We were likely one generation away from making racism such an outlandish thing that anyone who thought that way would be ostracized, ridiculed, and shamed into hiding. A society like that would make those who were racist look silly and likely either change their views or hide away so they weren't found out. (both ways are a win for the rest of the world)
But we need the MSM to do their part. If they see a crime and immediately want to pull the race card, they have to first verify if the perp had his hat on. If he did, and was a self admitted racist, then the news wouldn't be anything earth shattering, just another mundane story of a racist doing racist things. We could get back to looking at things objectively, and looking past skin color to understand why someone did something bad.
we need to stop devolving as a group. Momentum needs to be gained in moving forward, and away from the idea that racism is everywhere and in everyone. it just isn't. I know, the MSM will have to find a new bogyman to blame for everything, but they will bounce back quick. They always do. So be proud of who and what you are. Don't hide it away, show the world. Be you.
