Well, then it looks like most minorities are at a disadvantage then.
Exactly my point.

mgi, some questions:
1) do you understand that any reparations will come from the government, which receives tax from both blacks and whites?
2) how should reparations be paid out in your opinion? Should blacks receive a lump sum to spend as they wish or should the government build things in black communities?
3) if you support reparations for slavery, will you support reparations for the descendants of Irish indentured servants?

What a good thing this is. Shouldn’t other states and places in the USA and UK think about doing the same?
Investment, not reparations. Big difference. I am all for investing in programs which help to bring those in poverty out of it.

but at least 12k higher for white people. What are you debating here?
And no, your conclusions also leave out mention of current toxic racial prejudice relations in America that attempt to thwart equality community action programmes!
I was debating the 30x income, that must include super smart outliers like Elon Musk and Zuckerberg, they made themselves rich not society.
Median household incomes for 2018 are asian 87k, white 70k, hispanic 51k and black 41k . If racism is the factor of whites earning more than blacks by some people, then by the same logic, asians are the most racist.


Community action programs is exactly what Asheville is doing as reparations but they left out education. Education leading to a better job and 2 adults within the household contributes the most to higher income. The link you provided shows the correlation between education and higher earnings.
If people go through life thinking systems are against them and being held from climbing up, then they will get nowhere since they will always blame others for any knock back they get and not improve themselves.

It does not end. Pay the reparations. UK would not go bankrupt. That is a myth. Glasgow Uni for example, has already done some form of reparation.
Create a better fairer world for future kids to inherit.
Handouts do not create a fairer or better world.

Investing in the world can though.

Where are your reference sources for any of your claims?
We are talking about multifactorial issues here not just one factor. So bringing up Elon Musk as a massive outlier among millions of people is pointless surely?
We all know that Median is not the same as average(mean). And what is the definition of "asian"?
Racism is certainly a factor in how white people treat and disadvantage African-Americans. Who seriously disputes this anymore? And who says that complaining about racist systems disadvantages the person that complains?What should they do? let the prejudiced people have a field day? why?https://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2018...-among-asians/

Why did Jews get reperations when they already rich af? power. They used the US to force Germany to pay. Everyone knows Jews practically own everything, even Disney created by anti-semite Walt Disney (which is why it promotes such degeneracy now) everything the gentile build, Jews eventaully go on to take over. Also BET, Essence and other Black things.. who owns those? Jews. Jewish supremacy exists above all other forms of supremacy. Yet it is a crime to speak of it.

They are not White. So calling them White, and blaming White supremacy is false.

They can hide, by appearing as White, but at same time they are a race all together.


Groups like ADL and other so called anti-hate groups actively attack Black leaders like Louis Farrakhan who spoke out against the much ignored Jewish role in slave trade.

Professor Tony Martin who as a Trinibad born Scholar of Africana studies from 73 to 2007 at Wellesley College was eventually kicked out for mentioning Jews owned slaves..

I mean you can't make this up..

There were loads of Jewish confederates for example like Judah P Benjamin


Actor/comdian Larry David found his ancestor was a slave owner..


history rewritten..
White jews are white!

They are not handouts, unless you don't believe British Empire exploitation and slavery was a form of handout to Britain and increased their wealth?
And why wouldn't returning some of that stolen wealth help to create better communities? Glasgow uni will spend money on diversity type education.
What you mean is that you don't believe in reparation because its for black people? But you will otherwise believe in charities for good causes though, right?

1) would you say that Brits of Indian origin are discriminated against in the UK and that such discrimination is systemic?
2) if so, why do they earn more than whites?
