    I'm sure that if he won the presidency and tried to address that issue of repararions he would get the same response that we saw in that clip.

    White folks aren't trying to give us our 40 acres and a mule so to speak LOL.

    But they can do the things that are suggested in that clip. :em17:

    They are doing those things right now so to continue to do the same things isn't "change"...is it?

    White supremacist would not be 'giving' us anything, reparations are a debt unpaid. "We" have to recognize that! If we determine that they should be able to keep this unpaid debt, then we should continue doing as we have been. When one looks at this situation through the eyes of those who are responsible for the the theft of hundreds of years and over twenty-two generations of labor, and allowing the argument to flow from the perspective of the racist criminals, what would we expect their response to be?
    Victims of racism should include a discussion of reparation in every dialogue with the dominant power group, yes they will try to change the subject, it is up to us to keep it relevant! It is my hope that my grandchildren will never let this discussion die.
    The Struggle Continues! Peace!

    I am reasonably sure that Obama has an immediate agenda that does not address my long cited concerns, still, I am supportive of the brother. Imagine, an inaugural dinner with George Clinton and the P-funk all stars!

    They are doing those things right now but it needs to be done more. Inner city schools across the country need to be improved.
