A poor white Canadian speaking. Reparations would be a stupid idea. Sure I'm all for the laws being changed and updated to make everyone equal but to give money to everyone just because they're black. My grandmother was in the Nazi concentration camps and receives a cheque monthly from Germany. Neither my dad or myself get any of that and rightly so we shouldn't. Recently the Canadian government has been digging up mass graves from residential schools and there's been talks of reparations for the survivors. Also another thing I agree with as long as only the actual survivors get it and not them plus.

There are many horrible things about racism and discrimination, one often overlooked aspect is resignation/acceptance. Victims of discrimination sometimes resign to it as the way of the world. This can also be accepted for generations. People who are used to be discriminated against just move on with lower salaries, not getting the job in spite of superior merits, and tougher applications of the law and so on. This aspect is so horrible because it is so hard to break over time.

I’m white and I had no idea the extremes our society has done (continues to do) to discriminate to our fellow African Americans, as a white American all I can say is I am so sorry and I don’t know how to help, I’m a peasant shall we say, but thank you last week tonight for educating me and so many others. I have hope for the future I just wish we could speed up the process.

I agree. Black people don't need reparations. They need a room in the Bilderbergs, Rockefellers, Zuckerbergs, etc. gigantic mansions. Presumably half of their dogs houses which already are twice as big as anything they will ever get. Taking stuff from the average people to give to the poor will never solve the problem, taking money from the rich who print it will never solve the problem, what you have to do is taking stuff from the rich. IE their macmansions. How many homeless people would be able to live in Pelossi's house? More than a couple I'm sure. PS: This is an excelent way to start taking money out of politics. Now lets wait for a while until Pelossi, Biden and Chuck Schumer, and while they're at it they can pay for the homless food as well. 👌

So now it’s time to provide reparations - the federal government needs to make it much easier for black Americans (as opposed to anyone else) to buy property. Give them a chance to make up for what they were denied. Even the scales, if that is at all possible.

@Shea Rose Thank you! I’ll check it out. It’s amazing to me as well the lengths white people will go though to increase their relative importance. I am at a loss for words. What I can say is that sitting back and doing nothing about it is like saying: totally fine to treat a whole race of humans like deplorables. It’s disgraceful.

Reparation is reasonable. However it doesn’t seem right to just do a straight cut to compensate all black people. Whoever got harmed by the law, ie who had the money, wanted to buy a house and got denied, should be compensated. Not everyone. I also think the reparation should be limited to living people who are directly harmed. Everyone was born into different family, so there is no absolute fairness. People should focus on efforts of building their own life, not trying to claim benefits from ancestors. Finally, who should pay. In the end it’s taxpayers money, but not every taxpayer benefited in the first place. An a first generation immigrant myself, I had nothing to do with that history and I cannot justify why I have to pay for that. I bet that’s the case for many others including some white people as well.

Its is basically impossible to calculate how badly black people have been screwed over since the ending of slavery where the slavers were immediately compensated and the slaves where treated like animals for generations. But If you try to bits and pieces this little by little by standing in the way of moving this forward. You are perpetuating the racial and class based discrimination in this country and basically just letting all our current social issues just get worse. We understand that this is not the fault of the people that were just born or just came here but you can't just "muh taxes!" This when your taxes have probably already been spent on bombing some family in Afghanistan you had nothing against. Wouldn't you rather your taxes be spent on patching the issues in this country? And not just your but all of ours. This is an issue that the government is responsible for that is correct but since taxes are a thing it probably will come from that. Its like your saying, "man I just moved in this house and there's a leak in the basement. Oh well not my problem why should I fix it the last owner should have." I mean you can have that attitude but at the end of the day you still gotta live in a soggy unstable house.

The aspect of generational wealth is often ignored by many Americans when the topic of race is involved, but it has far more impact than one may think - when your prospects and living conditions are good, that has a big impact on your behaviour. Crime is more often than not economically motivated rather than malicious. But of course, it would be beneficial to those who stand at the top of the current society to not have to address the real issue in America. It was never about race, it was about wealth. The haves, and havenots.

Actually it's a myth that home ownership is the way to build inter-generational wealth. It's only helpful if compared to money not saved. Rents were not always high. If one's home was worth 75,000 in todays money, if you average about 4% compounded interest over 73 years, and the amount in enormous. I am tired of lies to make point. Racism is evil and we need not make up lies to show how evil it was. Redlining was certainly horrific but the home price thing is as big a lie as is the black/white wealth disparity. The average age of black person in America is about 27. The average of a white person in America is 57. Therefore, of course white wealth would be greater at this time. In order to answer questions, we need to first tell the truth.

This not only hurt black people - it hurt white people too, as shown by the woman whom they were trying to scare into selling her home. I only just realized that my own (white) family was likely a victim of this, as my grandparents lost money when they invested in apartments in a place that became a so-called black neighborhood. So a big part of the reason these apartments may have lost value was because potential buyers wouldn’t have been able to get a mortgage on them. I’m not implying with this that therefore those white people should also be getting reparations (quite the contrary - I want it to go to black people, not my family). But what this does show is that any time an immoral law is enacted or act committed, the negative effects will eventually harm even those such law or act was meant to favor.

The racist clause included in the deeds of the Levittown homes were never enforced by any court and were almost immediately found unenforceable. Less than two years after that horrible attempt to restrict minorities from moving into Levittown, SCOTUS found the practice to be unconstitutional. The overt discrimination you discussed is horrible but it was so short lived and there is no evidence it was ever actually used to prevent black families form buying homes. Some cities have had laws in existence for over two decades that aggressively sought to ensure minorities had priority access to low-income government subsidized housing, and rent laws that go as far as depriving the owner of their property and unilaterally granted low income minority individuals indefinite leases with rent rates that don't even cover maintenance costs. Reparations are an absurd concept. If there is truly overwhelming evidence that banks and the government acted in this horrible way and it harmed african americans, then the proper recourse would be a civil suit. The Federal Government can't pay damages because they don't have money they only have what they stole from the people. Saying the Government should pay cash You think that even though I can't afford to pay my bills and have six figures in student loans, I should pay money to black people for a housing crises that didn't involve me or them and they should be allowed to spend my money however they want because "it is their right." My tax dollars are their right? Like how the work product of farm workers were once the right of the landowner? Do ethnic groups tend to move to particular areas and live together? This has been a common practice with all races, religions, and ethnic groups.

An opposition group was formed, the Committee to End Discrimination in Levittown, to protest the restricted sale of Levittown homes, and to push for an integrated community. In 1948 the United States Supreme Court, in Shelley v. Kraemer, declared that property deeds stipulating racial segregation were "unenforceable as law and contrary to public policy". Only well after the 1954 racial integration decisions, including Brown v. Board of Education, was Levittown racially integrated, and even as late as the 1990 census only a tiny fraction of the community was non-white, a condition that still exists.

All these idiotic laws will be rendered immediately void when you tell these racist morons that Arabs and Indians are "members of the Caucasian race". Especially the Arab one has got to irk them. Funnily enough, Slavs are not members of the caucasian race, mainly because the people who invented that term - late 18th century German historians, not even biologists, considered Slavs to be barbarians and brutes, unfit for membership in the white club. Unlike Arabs and Turks, who at the time had some decent empires.

Realistically in a democracy everyone votes for what benefits them. An appeal to reparations is unlikely to get mainstream support considering that the majority of America is not black and the paying of reparations from tax revenue doesn't benefit anyone that isn't black. The majority of White people, Asians, and Hispanics aren't going to vote for reparations because they don't see any of the benefits directly. Is there a moral argument for it? Yes. Is it the "right" thing to do? Yeah. Will it happen? Probably not. It's basic math and human nature.
