I have read few things so far this century that made me laugh as much as this, which is perhaps a shade too funny to be really satirical.
Unfortunately the link was on the same page as this, which could loosely be entitled “where’s my forty acres, as I’ve already got the mule!” I might be interpreting more than is evident within the printed page, but I foresee on the horizon the return of ‘Affirmative Action’ and all that entails for the white man in America, but there are glimmers of a backlash from the many other so-called ‘minorities’. It is strange that one almost never hears of calls from the Chinese, Vietnamese, Pakistani, Indian and many other polyglot American communities for their ‘rights’, in the light of the fact that some of those afore-mentioned ‘minority groups are also discriminated against by other Americans. We certainly do hear of statements asking why should our black brethren get more, just because they were discriminated against legally. As I understand America, it is more a state of mind than a place, where a person of whatever colour, can prosper on his merits and by his hard work; and the question must be asked why one proportion of that America expects a better deal because of their colour?
As neoconservative campaigner David Horowitz writes:- “The claim for reparations is premised on the false assumption that only whites have benefited from slavery. If slave labor created wealth for Americans, then obviously it has created wealth for black Americans as well, including the descendants of slaves. The GNP of black America is so large that it makes the African-American community the 10th most prosperous “nation” in the world. American blacks on average enjoy per capita incomes in the range of twenty to fifty times that of blacks living in any of the African nations from which they were taken. “
