What Do You Think?

So I was listening to the radio this morning while driving the beautiful Ms. Bed-Stuy to work, and the topic was how the state of New Jersey recently apologized for the part it played in slavery. One of the hosts made the point that, its a step towards getting the entire country and the corporations involved in openly apologizing to us for slavery. While the other host was mentioning how the apology doesn’t really make much difference, and that the apology really isn’t gonna change anything. Ms. Bed-Stuy said that she feels monetary reparations aren’t necessary. She thinks that all African Americans should be allowed to attend college for free. What do you think?

    I think that amounts to reparations and I think it’s a bad idea. Especially now, going to college doesn’t guarantee too much of anything. Further, not everyone is college material.

    I’m not necessarily in favour of reparations but if we’re going to go down that road, they have to be monetary. America is what it is in large measure to centuries of free labour.

    Everytime I think of reparations, I think of the Dave Chappelle skit. Then I think about how in the wolrd would they distribute this stuff in a fair manner? There’s no doubt in my mind there would be some scheming taking place.
