Reparations For Black Slavery – A Modest Proposal

Ashanti, Ghana (Accredited Times) – Progressive visionary and author, George Orwell, wrote that ‘He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past’.

Whilst there is no evidence to support our assertion, it is nonetheless an absolute fact that Orwell was referring to black slavery.  His famous quote is frequently misunderstood so we will try to bring clarity. Here is the truth: without remedial action, any population that has been cruelly subjugated in the past is destined to remain enslaved in the present and the future.

Let us test this theory. Despite the occasional minor military or sporting victory, the fact is that the English people have exploited the Scotch and the other Celtic nations for centuries. When the Scotch first discovered bountiful North Sea Oil and gas in the 1960s, they naively believed that their liberation from the yolk of the English was at hand. Those of us who study history, however, knew differently. Since the English already controlled the past, and had powerful infrastructure in place, their corporations found no resistance when exploiting the newly found oil.  Whether through taxation, direct investment in North Sea Oil or outright expropriation of Scotch oil interests, the English remain in firm control.

If it is tough for the Scotch, imagine the lot of the descendants of African slaves.  Having been behind almost all mankind’s notable inventions, philosophical ideas and medical discoveries, the great African peoples were scattered to the four winds through the slave trade at the hands of the White Man.  Although modern day African-Americans have begun to pick up the pieces (and are credited with rap music and twerking among other developments), there is a general sense that a historic debt is owed.

The example of Mandela in post-apartheid South Africa shows us that forgiveness and reconciliation are tremendously important. Without reparations, however, true economic equilibrium can never be attained.  Since the majority white population of the West have most of the resources, how can the descendants of black slaves ever catch up?

In an ideal world, we would propose a one-off windfall tax of white businesses and peoples followed by mass restribution to people of color. This is similar to the climate change proposals whereby the developed west effectively bears the full burden of reducing economic activity (in order to cut CO2 emissions) but leaving the likes of mass-polluters India and China free to do what they want.  However, a number of accredited economists object that this solution is sub-optimal because of a possible risk of ensuing economic depression.

We therefore propose (with our noses firmly pinched) a market-based solution.  We invite consumers to buy only products with a special symbol on the labels. The symbol will make it clear to the customer that a percentage of the price paid will be distributed to people of color and needy black charities. A mass advertising campaign will be needed to launch this initiative, part of which will remind white people of the guilt they should feel for historical wrongs. Only through guilt will consumers be willing to pay the higher prices of goods marked with ‘reparations’ symbols.

As for the symbol itself, we have conducted a number of market surveys and historic research. It will be important to use a symbol that is instantly recognizable and will be associated with our racist past.

Whilst we had a number of interesting possibilities, we were struck by the popularity of the ‘gollywog’ symbol that was, until 1992, widely used in Britain and elsewhere by a jam maker called Robinsons:

The gollywog was actually “a black fictional character created by Florence Kate Upton that appears in children’s books in the late 19th century usually depicted as a type of rag doll”  For a while, the gollywog was a much loved toy of British children. It even appeared in children’s stories, including some by popular author Enid Blyton. Alas, Blyton besmirched the gollywog’s reputation in one story in which gollywogs were portrayed “as naughty thieves who once pinched Noddy’s prized yellow car.

In 1992, Robinsons decided no longer to use the gollywog symbol following threats from various extreme right-wing groups in Britain.  These groups, rumoured to be supported ideologically by journalist James Delingpole, were upset at what they believed to be moves towards ‘substitution of the white population’ by ‘immigrants’. For them, the gollywog was a symbol of oppression against the ‘native stock’. Shockingly, Robinsons caved into these demands.

We now believe it is time for the gollywog to reclaim its rightful place on all types of consumer products.  We are certain that people worldwide will want to buy gollywog-endorsed products, knowing that their money will go towards much needed reparations.

The NASA Apollo program was one of the biggest Black Ops of all time. Lots of Blacks went to the Moon, a huge cover-up!!! The first man to walk on the Moon was black, i know, I know – he was not accredited. – Armstrong is a Black name. He was much like myself, a white southern racist redneck from some south Alabama hell hole, but identified as a Black West African Monkey, making him Black and entitled to reparations, when I gets my reparations I’m going to start my own Black space program.

A parody by the blacks about the parody by the whites about black claims of superior technology by the ancient Africans. A black guy who can’t even lift himself off the couch, landed a Cadillac on the moon?
Instead of promoting progressive values, we have only parody and satire. The site has been infiltrated by Russian agents.

Parody??

OH I see how it is, instead of acknowledging the accredited superior Black technology depicted in the attached video, you turn to ad hominem attacks and body shaming Vlad. Also your comment should flagged for Tricknology with you tricky use of the English language, you should learn the superior Twi language when addressing things you do not understand about science and technology.

Whites need to PAY UP.

We DEMAND reparations, and we DEMAND them now.

MillionDollarBonus

Awesome article Pbier! The only thing I would add though is that no matter how much whites pay, they will still have to pay more. Like taxes and regulations, there is no end to the amount of reparations that we progressives demand. There will never be a point at which the balance is settled and white people can be left alone – they will have to keep paying forever. That’s only fair given the atrocities they have committed.

NEVER forget. CONSTANTLY be reminded

Enid Blyton is a nasty racist – her books should be put in a pile and set on fire.

White privilege caused this.

Why don’t you go back to Europe first, honkey? We will TAKE our reparations whether you give them voluntarily or not, and old white trash like you won’t be able to do a damn thing about it.

richandrenee

In the future, the calculation formula for reparations will be credited to BLM’s pioneering work.

After extensive analysis, I have determined/data confirming “Anon” IQ = less than ZERO

richandrenee

Excellent analysis BFM. Even the unfairly discriminated against bot fly has an intelligence quotation that is measurable – unlike Anon!

Anon’s racism has rendered him so thick that he can’t even tell the difference between then and than.

TAKE up the White Man’s burden –
Send forth the best ye breed –
Go bind your sons to exile
To serve your captives’ need;
To wait in heavy harness
On fluttered folk and wild –
Your new-caught sullen peoples,
Half devil and half child.
Take up the White Man’s burden –
In patience to abide
To veil the threat of terror
And check the show of pride;
By open speech and simple,
An hundred times made plain,
To seek another’s profit,
And work another’s gain.

Take up the White Man’s burden –
The savage wars of peace –
Fill full the mouth of famine
And bid the sickness cease;
And when your goal is nearest
The end for others sought,
Watch Sloth and heathen Folly
Bring all your hopes to nought.

Take up the White Man’s burden –
No tawdry rule of kings,
But toil of serf and sweeper –
The tale of common things.
The ports ye shall not enter,
The roads ye shall not tread,
Go make them with your living,
And mark them with your dead !

Take up the White Man’s burden –
And reap his old reward,
The blame of those ye better,
The hate of those ye guard –
The cry of hosts ye humour
(Ah slowly !) towards the light:-
“Why brought ye us from bondage,
“Our loved Egyptian night ?”

Take up the White Man’s burden –
Ye dare not stoop to less –
Nor call too loud on Freedom
To cloak your weariness;
By all ye cry or whisper,
By all ye leave or do,
The silent sullen peoples
Shall weigh your Gods and you.

Take up the White Man’s burden –
Have done with childish days –
The lightly proffered laurel,
The easy, ungrudged praise.
Comes now, to search your manhood
Through all the thankless years,
Cold-edged with dear-bought wisdom,
The judgement of your peers.

-Rudyard Kipling

How dare you post such racist diatribe from the hack writer Kipling, what’s next racist Tin Tin pictures?

We’re on a conference call with Pbier and MDB right now – none of us know how we’re going to explain to BLM how your evil comment got through moderation.

At best you’ll be looking at a life time ban Jim – but more likely the FBI will be kicking in your door.

You’re a HATE-SPEECH CRIMINAL – if there was a hell you’d be rotting in it.

Just to update everyone, we decided to leave Jim’s hateful comment as an example of how vile and racist the alt right really are. We are literally dealing Nazis here who want to have areas where whites are a majority and get to govern themselves. Can you imagine the horror of a world where white people get to have countries like everyone else? They’ll be back to dropping nuclear bombs on people and creating holocausts and world wars before we know it! Whiteness must be brought to an end as a matter of URGENCY!

Sorry for my absence today fellows. I was heading back from an LGBTQ+ rally I helped organize this weekend, and these transphobic cops stopped us and wanted to charge us a fine for blocking traffic and destroying public property. Of course, we refused, but they wouldn’t let in, and eventually took us to jail after arguing with us for over an hour! So I literally spent the whole day in a jail cell, just for blocking traffic, littering and smashing a few windows in the name of social justice. This is what speaking your mind gets you in Trump’s fascist America, folks. If you’re a social justice activist or accredited journalist you can say goodbye to free speech, because fascism is officially here!

An LGBTQ+ fart or a vegan fart will clear any area of cops, alpha-males, or real women. And then you can go about breaking windows or screaming for social justice .

Damn, you are dumb. You picked the wrong African country to bully. Equatorial Guinea has a per capital income (PPP) of almost $40,000. It’s doing very well today. You could call it Africa’s Norway.

If Equatorial Guinea had not kicked out the white colonialists, all of its oil wealth would have flowed back to Europe and the country would have been impoverished.
