It's not just that Kamala Harris is descended from slave owners. I personally don't believe in visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children. However, Kamala is for reparations for slavery: which does believe in that. So judging her by her own standards, her family is racist and owes money to other blacks. Why should we elect her until she's paid that debt? Since she comes from slave owners, she should lead by example.


Why is reparations moronic?

There are many reasons
  1. You don't think being the only country to fight a civil war (and the bloodiest war in our history) to free other people (people other than those fighting the war) was enough?
  2. The reason to ignore it isn't because there wasn't injustice, but because anyone with a clue knows that you can't rectify the past.
  3. It is not judging a man on the content of his character, but punishing/rewarding based on the color of his skin -- and that's vile.
  4. Why do you think the government should be in charge of stealing from one person to give to another?
  5. Practically, we have too much mixing (and it's been too long) to be able to separate those blacks who traded or had slaves, from whites who fought against it, and immigrants who had nothing to do with either (of either color).

I use the following examples: I'm slightly <2% North African, a little less native American (what about reparations for them too?) -- but most of my White/Arab/Italian/German family came to the U.S. long after the civil war and had nothing to do with slavery. However, some of them fought for civil rights. (While many blacks did not). What family was here (for me), fought for the North. I had a family member murdered by a black gang banger, and my step dad's family is black but can trace their roots back to a slave trader on one side, and a slave owner on another. Or Kamala Harris has Indian on one side (practically white), and Slave Owner on the other. How much are we both owed? Show your work.

Anyone that thinks that a solvable problem will set the bozo bit for me.
