First of all, we can never take anyone seriously who named his own pro basketball team after himself.
Second, my family, both sides, came here in the early 1900’s from Italy and Russia. By fact of that alone, my lineage has no connection whatsoever to colonial and early US history slavery. Why should my taxes be used in this manner?
Third, if we’re going down this route, how about Germany give me reparations for all the Jews killed in WWII? How about the US give me reparations for all the incidents of anti semitism through out its history?
You know why not? Because it’s bullshit to first of all ask for reparations, but second it’s fucking stupid to demand money from entire populations who probably have nothing to do with whatever SJW slight someone thinks is so damned important.
Bobcat the billionaire needs to be the first to put his money where his mouth is…oh wait…he’s black…we’re supposed to give him more money for reparations.
If that ever gets legit acknowledgement I’m going to be screaming for succession from the rafters! Let the bleeding heart self-loathing white leftists pay that scam…leave the rest of us out of it! We don’t owe you shit! The real leaders would understand that the real way forward isn’t reparations, its forgiveness. Forgiving those people in the past that wronged their families and forgiving themselves for basking in hatred for so long over something that can never be corrected by tangible means.
I wouldn’t worry about it, he is just using this as an opportune time to pull this none-sense, what about his billions of dollars he has made? Also, my ancestors were the original slaves “Irish Slaves” to the English Empire, start in and around 1615 and well into the 17th century, in bringing prisoners to the new world, claiming they were indentured servants, when in fact they were slaves. More revisionist of history, it was even outlawed for Irish and black slaves to bred, because it reduced the worth of a black slave with an Irish slave. This is all known history, that NO one talks about nor wants to talk about.
