You can only go so far when you attempt to correct past acts that are now considered wrong. How far back do you go? Who do you make responsible? If the original "perpetrators" are dead, is it just to impose a burden on their descendants for something they never did?
Reparations to blacks in the US for slavery??? Ok... do you impose a tax on the nation? On non-blacks? Just whites? Just whites who are descended from whites living in the US at during the slave era? Do you do a genealogical search and determine who descended from documented slave owners and tax them? What if they intermarried with blacks, hispanics, asian, etc. in the last 150 years? Do they only pay a partial tax based on their diluted, slave owning bloodline?
What do you do if they immigrated to the Americas as an indentured servant? Pretty damn close to slavery! What about all of those people enslaved by the Romans? As you can see, trying to "correct" the past based on modern concepts is neither practical or just. You can't turn back the clock.
You are living in the past and trying to shaft the present. Instead of making something of YOUR life, YOU want to whine about what happened to their ancestors and beg for a handout
Re-fit, re-tool. Don't sit on your ass and whine about it
If some blacks are more motivated than others, and that leads them to success.
If some whites are more motivated than others, and that leads them to success.
Then I fail to see where the racism plays into effect...
If the media keeps telling blacks that racism is still keeping them down, and certain blacks take that to heart and don't try, they will never see that it effects them less than they think, if at all in most cases.
