Ayanna Pressley: 'Black Lives Matter is a mandate from the people. It's time. Pay us what you owe us'
by Andrew Mark Miller, Social Media Producer
 | June 26, 2020 01:21 PM



Rep. Ayanna Pressley said on the House floor that the Black Lives Matter movement is a “mandate,” and the time has come for people to “pay us what you owe us.”

“I rise today on behalf of every black family that has been robbed of a child,” the Massachusetts congresswoman and member of “the Squad,” said. “On behalf of every family member that has been forced to see their loved one lynched on national television. Driving while black. Jogging while black. Sleeping while black. We have been criminalized for the very way we show up in the world. Under the harsh gaze of far too many, my black body is seen as a threat, always considered armed.”

“Centuries of institutionalized oppression will not be undone overnight, for racism in America is as structural as the marble pillars of this very institution," the Democrat added. "With the power of the pen we must legislate accountability, dismantle these systems, and move in the direction of justice and healing. The Justice in Policing Act is a critical step forward, and I applaud the leadership of the Congressional Black Caucus.”

Pressley continued: “But our work is unfinished. There is a rallying cry in communities across the nation. Black Lives Matter is a mandate from the people. It’s time. Pay us what you owe us. Our black skin is not a crime, it is the beautiful robe of nation builders.”

According to what I've found in Ancestry.com, I owe nothing in reparations.

One side of my family came from Germany around 1870, the other from Scotland around 1900.

I predict a new cottage industry to come soon: fabricating birth documents of ancestors to establish lineage as a descendant of slaves in the US.

From her perspective, I don't blame her for making such a bold statement.  They see corporations buckling to their demands and they see the government impotent to their riots.

When a predator sees a weak prey, they take advantage of the situation
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

Problem is (and read her statement).....  These reparations are being done via proposed legislation....    Big difference in a corporation being guilty of stupidity, versus we the taxpayers footing the bill.   Big big difference.

This is the last time you will hear any reparations parasite use the phrase, "Pay us what you owe us!"
Even the Black people know that we don't 'owe' them anything.

Don't know about you guys, but I wasn't alive in 1820, and neither were they. They want people today who have never even seen a slave, to pay Black people who have never been or even seen a slave, for something that happened 100 years before any of us were born.

From now on expect to hear, 'Pay us what we deserve!' or some variant of that.
The one thing that will always remain constant is, 'Pay Us! White Boy!' Because our skin color is dark! And that makes us 'victims'.

The most absurd part of 'reparations' are the details. Who is Black? Is half-White Obama from Kenya Black?
Is Kaepernick Black?

Do Blacks from Kenya who came here in the 70s get reparations?
And who is "White" to pay it? If it is paid from taxes, then Mexicans, Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese, and 100 other ethnic groups who live in America will be forced to pay reparations by proxy. If it comes from taxes, even tax paying Blacks will wind up paying their own 'reparations'. How does that make any sense?

So, then the question reverses. Now the question is, 'Who is White?' And even if you can determine 'Whiteness' beyond doubt (like Elizabeth Warren), then they have to prove you were in America before 1850 or so.

Furthermore, giving one specific racial category a sudden cash windfall would cause immediate chaos in society. Robbery, mugging, extortion, kidnapping, chaos, would skyrocket. It is an insane idea which has never been completely thought out as to what the end result would look like.

Would reparations harm Black society and America in general more than the potential gain? How do we know when we are finished paying 'reparations'? Is it a one time payment, or will all people who are determined to be legitimately 'Black' by some DNA standard and had relatives who were slaves, suddenly become Feudal Lords who get a tithe every month from the national treasury forever, with no end?

As a White guy, if I am found to have some Black DNA in me, do I get reparations? What percentage of DNA qualifies any person of any apparent ethnicity as be a qualified (Aryan) Black person claiming reparations? This would usher in a whole new age of classifying people by genetics and assigning them to a caste system in society. We are no longer all equal. We will be assigned to social status groups solely based on our DNA profile.

These are only a few questions that would have to be sorted out. The program would be a disaster mess. It is an unresolvable knot which cannot be untied. It is an insane idea that makes no common sense.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.

To loosely borrow from Churchill's 1934 speech about Hitler:

They might say, it seems to me, "you are rich; we are poor. You seem well fed; we are hungry. You have been victorious; we have been defeated. .....You have had the past; let us have the future." Above all, I fear they would say, "you are weak and we are strong."

Let's go to the pocket calculator for this....

Average income of Blacks in the US:  $39,490.00
Average annual income in Nigeria:  $15,746.81 (normed to US Dollars)

(That ratio is 2.58 to 1)

Total number of Blacks, per the 2018 Census:  47.8 million

So that means American Blacks owe ($39,490-$15,746.81) / 47,800,000 = $2013.21 each

The way I see it, African Americans owe $2013.21 each for "Reparations."  Pay up, you effin' deadbeats.(I got these numbers from Gubmit websites)

ETA, because I forgot, that $2K X 155 years since the first Juneteenth = $312,015.  Cough it up, you OBLM bastards.

If Black lives matter so damn much, why are Democrats so complicit in the abortion of so many Black babies? So odd when you think about it, you would think the party of the slave owner would want to have more slaves on the plantation not less, could it be that the slave owners see more value in the current market for Brown slaves than Black?

I don't owe you nuthin', ma'am.

Whatever debt that might have existed was paid in 1861-1865 by the blood of 600,000 whites.

Let me tie it down a little tighter.

In this country, you don't inherit your forebear's debts.
Thus, nothing anyone did before me is relevant.
I never owned anyone,nor did my parents, nor did my grandparents...which is far enough back, I think.
I don't owe this lady) nor anyone else I have not incurred a direct debt with) so much as a plugged nickel.

Hard to believe such ignorance still exists.

This idiot is supporting the Democrat party which placed the chains onto the backs of blacks, and is condemning those who won freedom for the slaves and passed the Civil Rights Act to end Jim Crow laws.

More to the point - what ACTUALLY happened a century ago, for the first time in the history of Man, slavery was eradicated by the nations of the West.

I don't give a single crap about Jim Crow or plantations - Or any of the other bumps along the way. The single salient point is that moment, thundering down the halls of history, when Protestant Christian sensibilities came to the awareness that ALL men are created equal in the sight of Yah.

The VERY THING that America deserves the most credit *FOR*, bought in blood, is the very thing this damnable blood libel lie attempts to deny.

Blacks have no solitary claim on being slaves. Every creed and color, every nationality has born the burden of being slaves. And prior to the West (and to this day in much of the world), every nation participated in slavery.

And those hoping to tear her down en toto - America and the rest of the West, will find if they succeed, that this mean old world will surely revert to what it has always been.

----------------------------------------
* All lives matter, be they black white, yellow or otherwise!
* We owe the Negro nothing, as slavery was a wealth creator for their Tribal Chieftains since 4,000 years past and remained so into the modern era.
* Black skin may be many things, but one it ain't, is the "robe of nation builders" as Africa remains the least developed and stable Continent since Adam and Eve.
* We were a colony of Great Britain from Jamestown in 1607 till our Constitution in 1788; hence w/o Sovereign Responsibility for our culture/society.
