    black people of today shouldn't have to pay for nothing
    400 years of FREE labor should count of something
    we have been hypnotized by a method so cunning
    and you wonder why when "they" see us - they say dummy

    I mean America built it's wealth on the backs of my ancestors
    I don't need reparations or to work with the U.S. treasurer
    how about some African-American full-service discount centers
    everything half-price for the descendents of "employees" of the slave masters

    black people should not have to pay taxes
    400 years of "free" labor should cover any future actions

    we left slavery with just our "freedom"
    but where's the back pay we've been seeking
    in any other country they would consider this treason
    so all the more reason:

    blacks should not have to pay taxes
    I don't need reparations
    just give me a National African-American Discount Card
    making ALL purchases half-price and I have my own savings

    I mean "free labor" had no overheard because that's why we eat all parts of chickens and pigs cause you make due when you have to

    I don't need reparations, mules or 2 acres, just give me some discounts and recognition that 'you" had more profit than a mexican druglord

    DSSNY
    no cpyrgt

    I'll be first in line because slavery IS in my DNA

    What A Great Idea

    Though highly unlikely that anything like that would ever happen, if it did, I would be second in line...right behind you of course.
