    That racist propaganda you posted might intimidate the unconscious but I don't pay that crap any mind. If we waited on those dump enough to join the U.S. military to save us, hell would freeze over, thaw out and freeze over again!!! Lol. You must be a buffalo soldier. The buffalo soldiers were sellouts who aided and abetted the theft of this country from its rightful owners. FYI I am a military brat and have a lot of career soldiers in my family. I have lived on several military bases, and I learned to shoot as a child. Finally, since you are convinced that we couldn't win, that the white man is invincible, what do you suggest we do in light of the fact that we are again being routinely murdered in the streets by white civilians and cops? Let me guess, 'suffer peacefully' right?

    Oh yeah, imo you, like most of your kind have been educated into ignorance. The primary function of education is to secure a people's survival by solving THEIR problems! Not beg their historical and traditional enemy for jobs. Least of all a job fighting in racist, imperialistic wars for big business! Obviously your education didn't teach you to analyze and think critically. It's called being brainwashed!!!! Lol Finally, my teacher, leader, and hero is Malcolm X. He taught that there were two types of slaves. Field ******* and house *******, negro if you prefer. Which are you? You can't be both!!!

    Calculating Reparations: $1.5 Million for Each Slave Descendant in the U.S

    For some descendants of persons held in U.S. chattel bondage, no monetary sum can compensate for the enslavement of their ancestors. However, for those looking for a number, there are various ways to calculate the value of involuntary servitude. Here’s one of them ...

    This is what reparations could actually look like in America


    ... To repair this breach, it’s becoming increasingly clear that reparations for black slavery and its legacy—including Jim Crow—must be part of the equation; facing what activist Randall Robinson calls “the debt” to people of African descent, those of us who are low on melanin content (aka “white”) will have to address the often uncomfortable history of how lighter skin color conferred, and continues to confer, economic advantage. To do otherwise is to live a destructive lie, perpetuating a perverted myth of deservedness that holds back our entire society and each of us individually ...

    This is what reparations could actually look like in America

    To ignore the legacy of slavery and discrimination requires a debilitating denial on the part of whites like me.

    Descendants of slaves sold by Georgetown want more than symbolic atonement

    By Jarvis DeBerry, columnist

    NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune



    ...She said the members of the GU272 Descendants Association are lobbying for their descendants' interests in ways their ancestors could not lobby for theirs. They're looking for a way to support descendants "in perpetuity, so that this lives on beyond us.

    A college that sold slaves owes more to their descendants than preferential admissions.
