reparation?


My mother’s family were Irish (Mulvaney), my father’s side Native American. If anyone should have reparation it would be Native Americans. When can I expect MY check!

Why is it some people in our country always believe the innocent should pay for the sins and crimes of the guilty? You had nothing to do with it centuries ago? Doesn’t matter……… we can probably link you to someone who did own a slave whether they can be located on your ancestral tree or not. And…..are you sure your blood line didn’t actually belong to one of the African tribes doing the capture and selling of blacks into slavery? They could have still found their way here……came and stayed.

Freedom wasn’t enough? I wish we could go back and ask those freed after the Civil War that question.

“Let us pay” should be “Let us pray”. I think we all would be far better off.

  1. ALL BLACKS SHOULD GET THE HELL OUT AND GO BACK TO AFRICA AND DEMAND THAT THEIR VERY OWN SLAVE OWNERS WHO SOLD THEM, GIVE THEM REPARATIONS. AS FOR ME I AM A DAMNED SEGREGATIONIST AND PROUD OF IT, YOU CAN NOT WORK WITH THESE PEOPLE, AND YOU CAN NOT LIVE WITH THEM EITHER.

  2. I’ve never thought that reparations for anyone was a good idea. But I think you’re on to something. First of all, I’ve never treated a person of ANY color poorly in my life (at least not on purpose). Though I must add, I HAVE been treated poorly by a person of color many times, just for being white (isn’t that racism???). So, to blame me for something that happened over a century ago is cuckoo. But, if there WERE to be reparations, I believe the Native Americans should be at the head of the line!

    1. Your opinion and comments are more than welcome. I have read your blog, just not commented. Except for your poetry, which I find difficult to grasp…. I often agree with you…….but not always. Have a great day.
