Leftists have been demanding white people pay reparations to blacks for slavery for a good while now. In light of the fact this isn’t Highlander and everyone from that time period is worm food, it’s a proposal that makes zero sense. But, that hasn’t stopped braindead leftists, like Michael Eric Dyson, from repeating the tired call for you to give him your moneys…
Georgetown Prof Michael Eric Dyson wants white people to open “an individual reparations account,” he told the New York Times in an interview about his forthcoming book, Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America.
The book, written for what Dyson says he considers to be an empathetic white audience, calls for white Americans to give to organizations benefitting people of color.
But more important, Dyson says, are person-to-person reparations like paying “the black person who cuts your grass double what you might ordinarily pay.”
Um… what? Pay double to people because possibly, maybe, perhaps their great-great grandparents or something (I’m not sure how many greats are supposed to be in there), were once slaves? Not to be a dream buster here, but has someone told Eric Dyson that slavery isn’t a white person’s invention? That slavery was around long before America? Maybe put it in a memo. Or a text.
“You ain’t got to ask the government, you don’t have to ask your local politician—this is what you, an individual, conscientious, ‘woke’ citizen can do,” Dyson told the New York Times.
Interviewer Ana Marie Cox asked Dyson whether he would consider the Koch brothers woke, given their $25 million donation to the United Negro College Fund.
His answer: “No. Martin Luther King Jr. believed that charity is a poor substitute for justice. But I ain’t turning $25 million down.”
Wait… huh? How is that not a complete turnaround? So white people money is only good if it’s paid for a black person to labor for them? White people’s money is only “woke” if it’s not charity, but double-paying someone for physical labor isn’t charity?
These are all rhetorical questions. I know the answer. Dyson wants white money given out of guilt. White people should feel guilty for being white and assuage that guilt by handing over fat stacks to the next black person they encounter.
Don’t be fooled. Keep your money you earned. If someone can so easily separate you from your money for a crime you didn’t’ commit given to a person who wasn’t even enslaved, you’re too stupid to have money. Take our advice, honkies. Don’t fall for it.
Since we’re talking about cons…
