Hi, my name is Yolanda Cole, I’m a regular member of this blog. I’m not a writer or anything like that. The posts here got me to thinking. I have been thinking, since you [blog owner] are much more liberal than a lot of bloggers. I would like to present my ideas to you and your blog of how I feel reparation would help the entire country.
I want run my ideas by you of how it would not only lift up African Americans but all Americans. I see how it wouldn’t just aid African Americans but aid the entire nation. Tell me what you think. I’m interested in learning what others think of my idea also.
Congress is again discussing reparations for slavery. It’s a complex and thorny issue
No, it is not a complex, nor thorny issue if a person is willing to look at it for what it is and put your personal preferences, racist ideas, and parsimoniousness aside.
Prolonging it isn’t going to make the issue go away.
We already see that the present-day situation is going to have change. We are pesently in a pressure cooker state of existence. There’s no other way for the nation to move forward than to change.
It would improve the overall living condition of African Americans which would improve the overall living conditions of al lower class Americans. Making American stronger. [That will be explained below.] It would improve the educational system. Defer the present day life-destroying-situation of funneling mainly African Americans-from home-primary-school- to prison, grant greater equality in the courts.
Yes, it would take a large bite out of the prison profits made from the suffering of others.
Improve the health care of millions.
I mean, think about it!
Think of all the regular homes and luxury homes and houses to be bought or built. All the cars to be bought; much more money will be spent on improved healthcare.
Think of all the luxury items to be bought.
I’ve heard some say that Black Americans will take the money and create luxuriant black communities and only allow Native Americans to move in. Maybe, but the newly wealthy people will need materials to build these communities with. These communities will still need supplies, building materials, carpenters and etc. It’s money to be had by everyone if you look at it from a universal point of view.
Personally, I don’t believe African Americans would be as stingy and selfish with their wealth as white Americans have been and still is. This free giving, charitable nature would lift the poor of the nation out of poverty.
US: Congress Advances Slavery Reparations Bill
Measure Is Historic Step Toward Repair
In my opinion, we can’t afford not to pay this reparation.
