You just can’t make up this shit.
I thought white liberals already alleviated their guilt by installing a (half) black president, or identifying as “black” like Shaun King.
A new “reparations” website asks white people to pay black people’s rent and give them money to relieve their white guilt.
The website, started by Seattle-based “conceptual artist” Natasha Marin, suggests a number of ways in which white people can atone for the fact that 1.4 per cent of white people owned black slaves in the United States over 150 years ago.
Examples on the site’s ‘about’ page include;
Numerous white people beset with self-loathing have already offered a number of goods and services, including the free use of a car, house cleaning, massages, “catharsis,” and straight-up cold hard cash.
Black people have also posted messages on the site with requests for free laptops, a Kindle EBook Reader and recording studio access.
“I want my project fully funded or at least my phone paid for from here till December so I can stay in Boriken writing about Amerikkkan colonialism,” another man demands on the ‘Reparations’ Facebook page.
Someone else asks for recording studio time so they can record, “an album entitled “White Boys” to vent out my frustration on, well, white boys.”
Before you say it, no this is not a joke, despite the fact that it’s absolutely hilarious. Every offer or request on the website links to the individual’s personal Facebook profile.
Marin says the website is a way for white people to “extricate themselves from the guilt they are mired in” but that it is in “no way a pardon for years of systemic abuse” (presumably Marin is not talking about the kind of “systematic abuse” that leads to figures like white people being 27 times more likely to be violently attacked by black people than vice-versa).
Marin asserts that the fight for a widescale, government-sanctioned reparations program is “totally legitimate” and should continue outside the confines of her website.
There is no indication yet on whether the website will spawn a copycat catering for white people upset at the Barbary slave trade, a far longer and more brutal period of slavery under which both blacks and whites were brutally oppressed by Arabs.
The concept will no doubt be lauded by ‘Black Lives Matter’ organizer Ashleigh Shackelford (pictured above), who has written a series of articles demanding that white people give her money for being a “fat black bitch”
After explaining how she was triggered by white people attending BLM rallies, Shackelford said that that they would be better served writing checks and giving up their car keys.
*GAG* Her ‘fat black bitch’ description is right on the money.
By the way, slavery is still flourishing in Africa; a fact that morbidly obese scrunts like the “fat black bitch” ignore. The largest group of slaves in the British Colonies in the 17th Century were the IRISH. They were considered lower than blacks.
LBJ enacted “reparations” in 1964 with the epic “Great Society” debacle. Since then, the federal government has thrown trillions of dollars at poverty programs resulting in a gigantic waste of taxpayer money. Democrats have fed, clothed and housed their slaves for decades. That’s how they keep them as a voting bloc on the Dem plantation. They’ve had over 50 years of “reparations”. To date, over $22 trillion has been spent on the ‘war on poverty’. It’s been a complete flop.
There are underlying issues for the crime and poverty in black communities, all of which have been fueled by a political agenda designed to keep them on the Dem plantation.
“You’re always going to be like this (we’ll see to it) but we’ll help you”.
DEMagogues nurture the conditions and the social conduct that spawns the riots and other violence predominant in black neighborhoods. They do this by feeding the maws of class warfare.
Don’t think for one minute that the DemLeft minds keeping the poor and minorities in their place. It gives them a demographic to exploit while mouthing platitudes about evil rich (white) corporate owners versus the workers. The myth of the Left being for the working class and minorities has been wrung for all it’s worth. It’s part and parcel of a party that uses them as a commodity; a monolithic, easily manipulated voting bloc that is all too willing to participate.
The Democrats have controlled America’s major urban areas for almost half a century. It’s a symbiotic relationship; they maintain power through the victimization of minorities. The entitlement culture will always expect a hand out, and the Dems will always be there to give it to them. Your color entitles you to special treatment. You’re downtrodden because the evil white folks made you ‘needy’. The bigotry of low expectations; it’s so much easier than personal accountability.
My ancestors didn’t own slaves. They had to work and scrape for a living. I want reparations.
On that note, I’m sick of my taxes being taken to house and feed slugs who are just as allergic to birth control as they are job hunting. I want to opt out.
