See ta-nehisicoates.com for more lies and propaganda. The brilliant Dr. Coates can dissemble with the best of them.
I’ve personally never heard a credible case for reparations. Reparations for slavery is a scam. It is another example of the true goal of the Socialists and their divisive inclusivity. The American Left simply desires to vilify descendants in America of Western European origin and “Whiteness”.
I find it interesting that today’s racial activists have focused on the White Anglo-Saxon Protestant. Most of the Americas went untouched by England. The majority of slaves and the majority of the Americas was colonized by Spain. Somehow, these LatinX activists forget that the Spanish were the most heinous and brutal slave power in the Western Hemisphere. The Spanish committed genocide and murdered all who failed to adapt to Spanish culture and religion. This is why so many in Latin America are Catholic and why so many of the peoples of the Americas speak exclusively the Spanish language. Spain murdered the local cultures out of the locals leaving only the Spanish culture in place. Despite, this violence, Spain and “Latin-ness” escapes their condemnation of the LatinX activist community. They simply hate White people. Spain was so successful in destroying the African and the pre- Colonial Americas’ Indigenous people’s sense of self that most identify more with “Latin-ness” or being Spanish and speaking Spanish than they do with any identity that predated their ancestors enslavement. Yet, Latin American activists firmly believe that America, the United States, and England were the cause of all of their problems. To the Latin American, they’ve forgotten Spain existed. The White European, especially the English, are the great villain. If they were to stop and look inwards, they would come to understand that the Spanish culture which they celebrate is the great villain of their existence.
Yet, these activists, like Coates, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib are not looking for truth. They need a villain. They must have a villain. They have chosen the White Man and “Whiteness”.
Without a villain, they can have no victims. Without victims, they cannot survive.
Until we stop creating victims, it’s gonna be really hard for America to survive.
If we do not stop creating victims and, instead, start empowering people, America will . not survive.
Reparations is just another victim scam of the Left. It’s another way for a few to enrich themselves from the many. It’s another way for lifetime “public servants” to continue to become multimillionaires.
Whilst the poor get poorer, the Public Servants get richer and richer.
