Barack Obama Says He Wants Reparations For Slavery "Deeds" Not Just Apologies!.Another time he was asked about this subject he was against it but now he done a u turn.
So if your "african american" you stand to gain some sort of "deed" , if this is a standard i want some "deeds" for the hardships of my fore fathers too, german's,roman's,norman's,saxons and the english!!!!
On the flip side if the "african american"community gets some sort of Reparation does this mean the end of the race card?

Just one more reason not to vote for this candidate.

I think black descendent's of slaves should be paid reparations too.  
JUST AS SOON as they pay the US gubmint back every last penny they've received in welfare benefits since LBJ's colossal "Great Society" failure.
 
It makes me sick to think that anybody living in the greatest place on the face of the earth could have the audacity to believe that this country owes them anything.
 
Even sicker to think that an entire race of people could be "bought" so easily for the atrocities committed to their ancestors.

I want restitution for the houses and barns burnt to the ground, the live stock stolen and slaughtered and my great aunts and cousins that were raped by the so called slave liberators who stormed the lives of my non slave owning ancestors. And before any of Them see a penny I want each one to repay all welfare money that they and their ancestors received directly into the social security for retiree's. Run that up your flag pole Mr. obama!

I AGREE WITH YOU  10,0000 PERCENT ED  !!!!!   The United States of America was founded by slave owners  !  This was a totally slave nation and slaves were considered property ... and by the way ... the proclomation Lincoln issued was illegal then and still is .... he had no right or power to decree such an order . It's not worth the paper it was written on ..... only a full act of congress could or can issue such at that time . At most it could only be a temporary order . Sorry ... ED's correct ... their own people sold them ... let them sue Africa first !

I happen to think that the lives of the people sold into slavery improved from the conditions which they were living in in Africa and  have steadily improved since the time they were brought here. I simply do not believe that Slavery by in large was cruel punishment. When I look back at the 1850 census it reads and two negroes  I put that in the context of living in a rural enviroment where everyone was working to grow food and raise livestock to survive.  The image of the rich white slave owner sitting on the poarch drinking ice tea while watching the negroes work hard in the field is  simply not the reality of that era of struggle to survive in hostile indian teritory.  To put it in terms we can understand today if I went out and spent money on a tractor to help me work in the field would I then go and beat it with a baseball bat - of course not.  I believe that they were provided with food , clothing, housing, medical care and in fact had better living conditions than many of the illegal alien mexicans working in this country today. 
If we had known how much trouble they would cause - we would have picked our own cotton.  As for reparation payment I say pay them by paying their boat passage back to their land of Africa where they can enjoy Freedom and Opportunity.

The simple fact was that most slave owners took great care of their slaves, their livelihood was dependent on them, as with any tool. There were naturally as always exceptions. Like wise as we see today only the atrocities made news, and the media will only depict what will be most talked about. That leaves us with this awful view of the way slaves were treated. Gone with the wind is probably the most accurate example of the way slaves were treated. The Patriot (Mel Gibson), is another. The truth is out there, it's just as usual not convenient for the Left.

Here's something else to think about; when the 13 colonies became an indipendent nation, only the colonies in the south allowed slavery. The blacks in the northern colonies were free, so you can't assume that just because someone is black they have a slave heritage.
Also over 400,000 Americans died in the Civil War. 99% were white. The fight was over slavery, and the result was the blacks were freed. Does this also mean that the blacks owe reperations to the families who lost loved ones fighting to free their ancestors?
Just something to think about.

We really have so much potential for everything to turn to crap right now that it will be amazing if it doesnt. I think it's all pre-planned to intentionally alter our form of government.

We have the same bullsh!t going on in this country. Never mind the fact that when the whites arrived the black dudes had not even invented the wheel yet. They were killing one another off (Dingaan Shaka) and having a merry old time.
We build this country into a first world country with roads, banking systems, tele comunications, power stations, mining and a thriving economy.
This was handed to Mandela and his fellow thieves. They are busy destroying everything and we are slipping back to a 3rd world country.
This is not enough for them, they also now want reparation. I know there is a big lawsuit on where the blacks from South Africa are suing the American multi nationals for their role in Apartheid. That is for doing business in South Africa (Ford General Motors Caltex etc.)

Uganda, Sudan, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, and now South Africa are classic examples of independent self-rule by the Africans.  Those countries combined have exterminated as many of their own people as Hitler did during the Holocaust.......and now Mugabe is blaming Zimbabwe's current economic troubles on the unfair economic sanctions brought against his country by the western world!! 
 
What a waste of a beautiful continent.

Some members of my family came to America as indentured servants, basically slaves. Doesn't that mean somebody owes me money?? I'll take it in large bills (not from Zimbabwe, though).

Not on your life... if someone OFFERED me payment for "past injustices" to family long since dead and gone, I would be incensed to the point of punching them out. It is so easy to blame someone else for one's own laziness.
