The 2 million number for FBA was an estimate, you ask for the calculation, and I said it in my response post to your not in good faith question.

Now your asking the same question like a woman, women ask the same question over and over again, you know being emotional. That is why I know you were raised by a single mommy.
? Stop with the racist insults....

Estimates should be based on some type of information

You are not basing your estimates on anything, so I guess I shouldn't have even asked you.

Reparations isn’t evvvvvver gonna happen. Stop playing the reparations lottery thinking that’s the only way to getting paid :palm:
All that money will go to white, Asian and Arab businesses in a week :mjlol:

I am glad these bootlicks/white-supremacists are getting banned for speaking crazy on ADOS.

:camby:

350k plus healthcare and college sounds reasonable. That's enough to buy property or land, pay off debt, and give people a general leg up to catch up. I wouldn't complain if that check came in the mail

Between $250k-$500k is where the credible studies usually put the value. This doesn't include fixing up the infrasture though. The government will have to fix up the infrastructure as well. Along with everything else you stated.

I wouldn't be complaining either. I'd probably get the check laminated.

The children of those who they tried to break finally got what was owed to them for forced, unpaid labor. :wow:

It's possible. America has money, America gives millions and billions to immigrants, Hispanics/Latinos, Asians, the War in Ukraine, and etc., but when it's time to cut the check for FBA/FREEDMAN (Black people who descended from Slavery in America) they say they do not have the money.
It would IMMEDIATELY collapse the very financial institution that would be govingbthe money.

It's insane, breh.

Great way to make reparations look completely unreasonable....
I hate to say it but it's true. This is the same country that won't even have a public option for health care because black people will benefit too. They'd literally die before they see black people accessing doctors and medicines so I can't imagine they'd ever agree to draft black people into the 1%. We are talking about the greatest financial reversal in human history here, taking the poorest group and immediately turning them into the wealthiest people overnight. This is the kind of thing they'd fight a second Civil War over.

We are owed reparations though. America is only where it is because of the hundreds of years of unpaid labor that black people were forced to provide. The idea that you'll wake up and check your bank account and be a millionaire is an amazing vision but it's not realistic in a country as racist as America. They can't even come together to do shyt that will help them so I can't see them getting together to help a people that they can barely tolerate.

It has to be in the form of easily accessible benefits that will allow people to build wealth. Seed money for businesses, free tuition and board at any post secondary institution, a 60% subsidy on a first time home purchase, 30% subsidy on a vehicle. Something like a 25%-50% supplement on income for black parents with children and Foundational black American status. They'd have to do something similar to what Canadians do with indigenous people but much more substantial. This would include subsidies for black farmers too. Significant amounts so they can hire more people to work the land and buy better equipment.

I will say this though: to do this, they'll have to create a government registry with names, addresses, contact info of pretty much every black person in America to give them a status number. That means if they decide they want to do a genocide, they have a perfectly organized hit list to kill every single black person in America who signed up for reparations. It will be the worst holocaust since WWII.

Another generation or 3, they'll give $10k and call it a day.

They're not cashing us out.
That's what they trying to do.

They kicking the can down the road until we accept pennies on the dollar.

I also think they wanna own and white wash every major city before cutting a check. They wanna gentrify every great location so we can't rebuild Black meccas in cities like Chicago, LA, DC, Baltimore, etc. Imagine how much wealth we would have on the southside of Chicago again if this happened. We'd have businesses, more homeowners, more people getting education because they aren't living paycheck to paycheck anymore, etc.

The moment reparations is reality, is the moment the US dollar is completely worthless.... If there was a way to tax corporations that directly benefitted from slavery then maybe...

We all know that Banks and Wall street were literally formed to deal slaves, however, I dont see them budging.... Government tax dollars, would collapse the country and descend it into chaos, and make us even more hated than we already are, so what would be the point of having money if every restaurant you go into spits in your food lmao...

Corporations are entities that NO ONE would give a fukk about taxing

LOL Your trolling, because you said the Japanese people recieved $25,000 money each LOL :mjlol:

Don't forget the $25,000 EACH the Japanese internment folks got from Ronald Reagan, aka reparations. Hell, don't holocaust survivors get money from the U.S? It didn't even happen here! But let us mention reparations, and they say we get welfare and food stamps, as if most of us want to live that way, and as if every race doesn't consume those things.

They love talking about hard work, yet someone in the comments said if one had to choose between and Asian American, and an African American with the same education, they would more likely choose the Asian, because they believe they have a stronger work ethic. So they're admitting they don't want to hire us. Someone replied, how are you going to break the stereotype if they can't get the job in the first place? CRICKETS.

You pair that with the longer search for a job, getting the job, and still being pulled over and racially profiled by the police. Then when we vent, they claim we're the ones who are racist, and they're being oppressed.

And I've met many Asians who admit they talk shyt right in front of white people. That's one of the many things other cultures have that we don't. They were able to bring their language. That is the only reason white people get mad when folks aren't speaking english.

It’s on those that believe and are fighting, that will get this done.

Leave the black Americans who think it’s not possible or feasible alone. There are politicians that are actually willing to fight. Vote for them. I am, and will continue to.

No need to even bother or mention those from outside of the US who are naysayers
