Someone who is born in America
Only the slaves themselves were brought here by force. All of the decedents were born here.
Just out of curiosity, what is it that you are trying to get at? That black people do not belong here?
If there were any of the slaves left alive then I would say yes, those who were slaves would deserve monetary reparations. Since there are none, I do believe that the reparations to the decedents of slaves should be that of the striving towards true equality, which though there have been great strides towards this goal, there is still a long way to go. The thought that there is equality in our current system is a myth.
You see, there is a segment of society who believes that they deserve to have more than others. These people look down at others as less deserving because of what they do for a living. Let me ask you oh wise one. If someone's job in society is picking garbage up off the streets of anycity USA, because this person is only a lowly trash picker, do you feel that he does not deserve to have the benefits of medical, housing, or even food?
If you think that there is actual equality in the system, then you are deluding yourself. Yes, I do believe that there should be reparations, though not in the monetary sense, and also, not only for the decedents of the slaves of the past, but also for the wage slaves of the present.
Can anyone answer the question, does liberalism mean pro-black?
I am seeing a pattern here.
Let me start off by saying that I prefer the word Progressive over liberalism.
progressive (adj.) Moving forward; advancing. progressive (adj.) Proceeding in steps; continuing steadily by increments: progressive change. progressive (n.) A person who actively favors or strives for progress toward better conditions, as in society or government.
liberalism (n.) The state or quality of being liberal. liberalism (n.) A political theory founded on the natural goodness of humans and the autonomy of the individual and favoring civil and political liberties, government by law with the consent of the governed, and protection from arbitrary authority. liberalism (n.) An economic theory in favor of laissez-faire, the free market, and the gold standard.
This means that I am pro humanity, and this includes all races. I want progress for all of humanity.
Now, let me ask you a question. Should I base my belief system upon a persons skin color?
