    All this does is further the entitlement mindset and creates more racial tension in our country.
    yeah right - we all know the source of racial tension is bringing up those old bad memories from the past.

    c'mon digsbe, quit exhibiting your ignorance of this issue
    read some of the background and you will find the bases for the court awards of significant monetary compensation are not based on slave owning
    America's agents, its federal employees, failed to process loans for black farmers in the same manner that farm loans were processed for whites
    other federal employees failed to account for the earnings resulting from mineral rights on Indian lands. yet others sold Indian land which was not the government's to sell
    for those failures by our national government the court has (repeatedly) found in favor of the Indians and black farmers
    only now does it appear congress is going to appropriate the monies to finally provide the compensation which has long been due to the people who suffered these injustices at our government's hands
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    This betrays a very poor understanding of history on your part, RightinNYC.

    They want you to be angry at brown people because it keeps the poor and middle class at war with themselves while they get richer and richer and richer off of their unscrupulous tactics.

    If working people of all races would stop being whiny little bitches about race and fighting with one another, maybe we could get back to an economy that values WORK instead of the ability to craft schemes that make them richer by shuffling **** around.

    You worry about this bill, but you don't worry about the fact that a "farmer" from Tennessee runs for office on "smaller government" but has collected $20 million in government farm subsidies over the past decade? Imagine how many others like him are making a killing off your tax dollars. But that doesn't bother us because their white? Is that the point?
    The typical liberal response.......wait for it......RACISM.

    So why isnt the blacks screaming for the Arabs and Spanish to pay them seeing they owned the majority ships that bought them here? Or how about the black tribe leaders whom sold them into slavery because the last time I checked, during slavery Africa was still a all black land mass so they were treated like **** by their own countries.

    As for the Indains, which I am 1/4, they lost the war. Should we start giving back the land we won in every war? They are lucky they were not killed to the last person like African tribes would have done. Should TX, NM, CA and AZ all go back to Mexico?
