Washington Post - Give Blacks More Votes Than Whites

Rarely do you see the SJWs state their demands for reparations quite so openly.  According to the Daily Caller:
“Racial reconciliation is impossible without some kind of broad-based, systemic reparations,” writes Theodore R. Johnson, a former White House fellow and current Ph.D candidate in law and policy at Northeastern University. “But if a pecuniary answer can’t fix the structural disadvantage — and it can’t — what can?”

The answer, Johnson argues, is simple: weighted voting, where black votes count for more than white ones. Specifically, Johnson suggests giving each black person five-thirds of a vote, to reverse the old three-fifths compromise written into the U.S. Constitution.
Johnson justifies his argument by saying it’s the only way to solve the “structural disadvantages” faced by blacks.
So only racism will fix racism?  Sounds like he's been studying the Federal Reserve, where they believe the cure to being in too much debt is to borrow more.  

I don't know about you, but my family is recent to this country, arriving in the early 1900s.   I'm only second generation American on both mom's and dad's sides of my family.  Nobody in my ancestry was in this country was here during the years slavery was legal.  But I'd bet just about anything that if you went far enough back, someone in my family was a slave.  Slavery was the norm in the world until the US ended it, and it's still common in much of the Islamic world today. 

So the country that not only ended slavery in its society, but almost tore itself apart in doing so, and is now almost tearing itself apart in the name of ending any hint of any "ism", this country must pay.  And cure racism by using more racism.

I call bullshit.


  1. Some of my ancestors helped run the underground railroad that freed slaves - I don't suppose these SJWs would like to pay their ancestors' fare - plus a little interest?

  2. There is one organization that is still in existence, that promoted and encouraged slavery. That is the Democrat Party, the part of the Slave Masters. I suggest that Democrat votes be counted as only two thirds of a vote (round down).

  3. Oh fer Pete's sake.....

    They compromise 14% of the population, have 25% of all government jobs, and now The Elites want to give them MORE free shit?

    This insanity has to stop.....

  4. It's simple really. Just tell them as soon as they produce someone who was actually a slave we will give that person reparations. As soon as they produce someone who's vote was only counted as 3/5ths we will give that person an extra vote. But for everyone ALIVE RIGHT NOW those conditions don't apply as none of them
    have been harmed in any way by practices that occurred 150 years ago.

  5. Lincoln famously wanted to send them back to Africa. Twenty years ago I thought that was a bad idea.

  6. YGTBSM!!! But then again, we're talking leftists... Scrambling any way they can to get a leg up, as if multiple votes isn't enough...

  7. Technically, Britain led the way in abolishing slavery, not the US.

  8. What would be the difference if a KKK leader said that KKK members should get a greater vote? Theodore R. Johnson seems oblivious to his own racism. He and people like him are the problem.

    Too many people fail to understand the reason that blacks were counted as 3/5ths in the census. The Southern congressmen wanted to count all the blacks so that they would have more representatives in the house, but they had no intention of representing blacks in the South. The Northern congressmen wanted the blacks to be represented but not reward the white Southern politicians for their ploy.

  9. Anon 1342, for sure, the British led the way - in particular the British Christian churches. What I was referring to was the American "Civil War" which was uniquely violent and brutal compared to the rest of the world.

  10. “But if a pecuniary answer can’t fix the structural disadvantage — and it can’t — what can?”

    All the money in the world is not enough.

  11. I'm a wage slave (work about 5/12 of the year to pay the gummint) -- does that count? Unfortunately my heritage is mostly Caucasian and American Indian, so I guess I'm one of the bad guys. Good grief.
