“Reparations”* are in the news on a regular basis all of a sudden, mostly due to California entertaining the idea as if it is a serious proposal (*assume scare quotes around all future uses of the term reparations). To show how serious they are, California assembled some of the least serious people they could find to “study” the notion, and I am sure they seriously considered the issue.
(“Revered Dr.” Amos) Brown said the reluctance around reparations for slavery “is about being mean to Black people.”
“Those who say, ‘Oh, no, It’s too much. You don’t deserve.’ They are not showing that they have a heart,” he said. “They are hard-hearted.”https://archive.vn/smMwt
Yes, “Dr.” Brown. The only reason to oppose the paying of millions in reparations to people that were never enslaved, paid for by people that never owned slaves and 99.9% of whom have never done anything wrong to black folks is that we just get off on “being mean” to black people. Not that it is deeply immoral and downright silly.
I went down a bit of a rabbit-hole with “pastor” Amos Brown. The “Reverend” Brown, who is described on the history portion of the website of Third Baptist Church of San Francisco, the “church” that he “pastors” as a “civil rights servant and NAACP San Francisco Chapter President….
…but makes no mention of the Gospel. In fact in his almost 1,800 biography on the website, the word Gospel never appears. The only three uses of the word “Christ” are once in relation to a denominational name and twice in reference to Christian education. The name of Jesus appears zero times but the name of Martin Luther King, Jr. appears a bunch of times. Jesse Jackson is even mention three times but Jesus? Ain’t nobody got time for Jesus at Third Baptist Church of San Francisco. Dey too busy blaming Whitey for sucking at life. On the page introducing Amos Brown he describes himself like this:
A legend in his own time? Trump ain’t got nothing on “Reverend Dr.” Amos Brown when it comes to self-promotion. What a narcissistic boob. Another nearly 500 words of biography and still no mention of Jesus. It simply reinforces what I have believed about most black clergy, at least the urban kind: they are not Christian ministers in any sense and most seem to be theologically illiterate. They are just carnival barker race-hustlers who gravitated to ministry because it gave them a steady paycheck and adoring audience. To be fair, that is true other than the race-hustler part when it comes to many White clergy, more on that in a future post.
The idea of paying black people millions of dollars when virtually all of their “oppressors” in the White community will never see that kind of money is ridiculous on so many levels and it is wildly unpopular among the people who will have to pay for it, Whites, Asian and mestizos alike. So what is the point?
It is a scheme, not one cooked up by dimwits like “Reverend” Amos Brown of course. That guy is dumb as hell even by the rock bottom low standards of black clergy. No, someone pulling his strings and whispering in his ear is giving him these talking points that he then Negrofies to appeal to his congregation and the guilty Whites that take him seriously.
The hustle is in two parts.
First, They make a ridiculous demand (and of course all demands for reparations are inherently ridiculous) of millions of dollars, knowing full well that they won’t get that but the response to that demand is critical. Instead of saying…
“Fuck you, no. You don’t get anything. In fact you owe White people for pissing away all the money we have spent trying to civilize you but we will settle for you shutting up”
…the normiecons will stammer about the amount instead of being firm on the principle.
“Five million dollars?! It is just crazy to ask for that much!”
In doing so they will have surrendered the moral high ground by tacitly agreeing to the principle that reparations are moral, just not so much. Amos Brown’s puppet-masters have already built this in, he is quoted in the article as saying…
“They ought to say, ‘this is what we can afford,’” Brown said. “And if we can’t pay it now, we do like the Germans did – pay for it over installments.”
You see how that works, you make a ridiculous demand and then start negotiating your way down. Compared to five million per person, five hundred grand seems like a bargain once you surrender to the idea of paying them in the first place.
The second half of the hustle will be to endlessly remind blacks that they should have and would have gotten five million or whatever crazy number they throw out there but evil Whitey wouldn’t give it to them. That way even if they get $500,000 they will still be resentful and believe dey be owed mo’ gibs.
The reparations conversation isn’t about fixing an “injustice” or making things equitable, it is about stoking endless racial resentment to ensure blacks keep voting for Democrats and hating Whites. Once blacks start getting these payments, the demand for them will never end and the target will keep moving just out of reach. It will work because blacks are too dumb as a whole to understand that they are being snookered (plus they get free money for gold teef and dope rims) and Whites as a whole are too cowardly to tell them to sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up and be happy they aren’t living in a hut made of elephant shit in Africa.
Reparations are almost certainly going to be a national issue in the next five years and at some point they will happen. How much won’t really matter, it is all fake money anyway and no matter how much money you give them, blacks will still be blacks. But maybe it will help some Whites on the red-pill journey to race consciousness.
