Mr Akufo-Addo says the present effects of past slavery "cannot be quantified". This means that no amount of money can quantitatively be agreed upon, as exactly neutralizing the damage. Accordingly he just confessed that reparations payments serve no useful purpose.

My logical response to this absurdity is as follows:

I've never owned a slave.

And, you never picked cotton.

I am of Irish decent. If we extent this reparations illogical, I want a ton of money from the ancestors of the Irish and English landlords who murdered 1 million of my ancestors during the Irish Potato Famine of the mid-1800s.

This illogical can be extended to many groups of Human Beings who have suffered at the hands of others.

So, think about this scam, for a scam is all it is.

The first four slaves sold in North America were wait for it … Irish! Reading about the twin practices of indentured servitude and slavery there was often little difference as the indentures were often extended for trivial reasons by the plantation owners, some of whom were black.

For the record, although complicated by the ease of crossing the Irish sea I have a complicated combination of Scots and Irish ancestors myself.

Dublin was a hub for national and international slave trade. Slavery was part of the spoils of war. We can't fix the past; we can only move forward and work on the underground diabolical slave trade today whatever form it takes.

Indentured servitude was a form of slavery.

Expand full comment

It’s possible to make this argument in the earliest days of American colonization. Most Black people were enslaved and most white people were indentured servants, though a few Black folks were also indentured servants (tho I don’t think any White people were officially “slaves” as a legal category).

This was in the days when Americans actually believed in freedom, justice, and liberty would unite across racial lines to overthrow the corrupt elites who were screwing them all over, including using destruction of property (Boston Tea Party) and taking up arms (guerilla warfare used in the Revolutionary War that won American independence from Britain).

Slavery though wasn't unique to this country. It occurred throughout history prior to the establishment of the U.S.

John Martin writes "The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves. Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white." Although the internet claims for the most part this is a myth. I doubt it though, knowing how the Irish were viewed and treated by the English.

See but these historical instances of slavery do not have any bearing on our present cultural and political/economic context. You can still see the fallout of the slave trade and European colonization across the African continent and in the USA. The devastating setback of slavery and then Black Codes and convict leasing and share cropping, then Jim Crow and redlining and then Mass Incarceration and the war on drugs—these are all manifestations of the same legacy of slavery that plagues US society til this day. Slavs and Irish folks who ancestors were enslaved don’t experience any systemic disadvantage from that history.

I just don't agree with your analysis. You list a lot of the historical effects of slavery and discrimination. And I won't argue the effects don't carry over to modern times.

They pale in comparison to the effects wrought by those pretending to "help" black people. Lyndon B Johnson told some of his fellow segregationist Democrats, y'all go with me on pacifying these negroes, we'll have 'em voting Democrat for the next 200 years. Except Johnson, never one to shy away from crude language, didn't say "negroes"- he used the other word beginning with 'n'. The Democrats successfully replaced fathers in black families with welfare.

The schools in any large Democrat city aren't educating black children. Baltimore was recently found to have a high percentage of schools where not a single child was reading or doing arithmetic at grade level. I can easily give a half-dozen other similar examples in under 10 minutes.

The war on drugs was something black elected officials were lobbying for, as they saw the devastation drugs were causing in their communities. Did you know that, Jordan? Or maybe you knew it but thought you could get away with blaming it on whitey.

So. Tell us, Jordan. What do you think has a greater impact? Housing discrimination in the 1960's? Or the lack of fathers in black homes and lack of education in schools where black children are being taught today?

Expand full comment

Well I think what you’re describing is a part of the same legacy of slavery and anti-Blackness that I’ve just discussed. The democrats try to control the Black vote by handing out a few crumbs to keep people from utter destitution but don’t solve underlying problems because they need those problems to win elections and keep their comfortable careers within the democratic machine. The democrats have pretended to care but actually haven’t, and the republicans haven’t even tried to pretend. Black Americans are still waiting on their 40 acres and a mule, still waiting for all the benefits that white settlers of the west, pioneers and ranchers received, paid for by the US gov’t. Black people *never* received the same level of support and benefits that white communities received—and white folks on these lands had a few hundred year head start on generational wealth accumulation over Black communities. Even despite their lack of support from the government, successful Black communities arose and were burnt to the ground by white mobs (as in the case of “Black Wall St.”), with thousands of Black folks lynched since emancipation. The Klan and other white supremacists terror groups, white mobs and white citizens councils lynching and bombing churches, politicians manipulating people (as you’ve described), and the FBI assassinating leaders and dismantling all attempts at Black self-determination—all these things have had a profoundly damaging impact on Black America. Is the solution to randomly hand out checks? Not quite. But it’s clear that there is still a moral debt. Black people literally built this country—including the White House.

Jordan, you make quite a few well founded points here. Thanks.

"The democrats have pretended to care but actually haven’t, and the republicans haven’t even tried to pretend."

Exactly!

I've pointed this out in another part of this discussion string. People here seem to eager to find fault with democrats while ignoring the inaction (or worse) perpetrated by republicans, particularly since the Dixiecrats were driven from the democratic party in the 1960s. I'm not going to cheer lead for the democrats but at least there is some semblance of reason that shows up in their platforms from time to time. The Republicans..., it seems that cult hero worship over rides any and all other political considerations in that party now.

So sad.

I would much rather have a situation where it takes time to study the policies and follow through of each candidate to cast my vote rather than vote for the lesser of two evils. A true two party system would be a welcome respite from the ridiculous nonsense we have now.

Can we ever know if that is or isn't true? Perhaps the Slavs and Irish would be wildly more successful today had they not been enslaved in the past. Isn’t that the logic of charges against everything “systemic”?

Expand full comment

I mean, maybe those people would have somehow been more “successful” as a group? But Slavs and Irish people, especially their descendants in the USA, are in no way disproportionately affected by anything. Black folks, particularly those who descended directly from enslaved people, are most certainly disproportionately affected by the legacy of slavery and racism that is still alive and well in America.

Expand full comment

I agreed with Eric Holder once, that time he said we are cowards when it comes to talking about race. The talk is ticklish because we tend to stereotype “Black folks, particularly those who descended directly from enslaved people.” Obviously, that’s bigotry, even if well intentioned. I don’t disagree that black culture in America has faced and still faces particularly horrific barriers to personal success, but despite barriers, untold numbers of former slaves and descendants of slaves achieved success beyond that of the average American. Successful individuals, including “Black folks” from George Washington Carver to Morgan Freeman know the formula for success transcends race. They might use the past as a self-motivator, but not as a weapon or badge that says, “Pity me.” I suspect the people most evidently and “disproportionately affected by the legacy of slavery and racism” are owners of big-box stores getting looted in major urban areas and Black folks getting race-baited by Al Sharpton types.

Expand full comment

I mean, there were a handful of freed Black people who owned slaves 200ish years ago. Even some natives who owned slaves. Finding a couple examples of success doesn’t disprove that there is a systemic disadvantage. Just look at the proportions of different metrics from White and Black people in America: generation wealth, median income and wealth, % of homeowners, amount of money going to schools in Black neighborhoods, numbers of grocery stores vs liquor stores in Black neighborhoods vs White ones—countless comparisons. The point is that overall, Black folks are *systemically* disadvantaged in a way that White people have never been. And every time leaders in Black communities around the country and world have tried to step up and build economic and political power and self-determination, look what has happened. The CIA introduced crack into Black neighborhoods. FBI dismantled Black liberation groups. Leaders were assassinated. The problem is that many and often the majority of the businesses and apartments in countless Black communities aren’t even owned by Black people. Nobody is asking for your pity. People are asking for justice.

My wife and I lived in Africa for a year 2006-2007 while I worked for an oil company. I've traveled to Nigeria over a dozen times, the last time in 2019.

True justice calls for one to be made whole for an injustice - not make a big bonus on it. Being made whole for people whose ancestors were slaves in this country would mean restoring them to what their lives would be like had their ancestors not been slaves. They have no idea what that would be like. If that was the deal, they'd never in a million years want it. The poverty I saw in Africa was soul-crushing. Imagine being surrounded by a dozen beggars who had been stricken by polio. They get around on a small square of plywood with roller skate wheels, propelling themselves with their hands. Imagine a handful of people from a village on a beach, using muscle-power to drag a fish net along the shore, and after all that effort, being rewarded with a couple of scrawny little fish. They do that b/c if they don't, they don't eat

I've been told that black Americans, when asked what they thought about life in Africa after seeing it, exclaimed, "Thank God for slavery." I personally never heard that. But it's completely plausible.

Reparations are another of many progressive ideas that sound good to the non-thinking. They're actually just a bullshit story for make it sound like fairness and justice to take money from people who earned it and give it to those who didn't. And the proof is the astronomical amounts of money judged by the California reparations commission, which would allow black people to not ever have to work for the next five generations.

Did you ever go to the upscale neighborhoods in Lagos or Abuja? Did you see how lavish the wealthy live there? It’s not only poverty, but there is indeed obscene wealth inequality with the vast majority suffering. You have to understand why there is so much poverty. The truth is that African nations would never have existed in the form that they do if they weren’t forged by Europe, who designed them intentionally to be unstable. The Europeans found a small group of elites who were willing to work with them to sell the rest of the country and throw them under the bus. Europe has looted Africa for centuries. That’s why they’re poor. If Europe (and the US and China) stopped destabilizing Africa and functionally stealing their resources, life on the continent would be as nice as nice as life in any “rich” or “developed” country

Never went to Abuja. Visited upscale neighborhoods around Lagos - Ikoyi Island and Victoria Garden City on Lekki peninsula.

I agree with everything you're saying, and add to it. Nigeria is the richest country in Africa b/c of oil wealth. Most of the country's oil revenue is stolen by government officials. The money to be made is part of the reason elections are so fiercely contested. In 2007, two different candidates for governor in two different states were brutally murdered.

The North was losing the Civil War when Lincoln wisely declared that it was a war to free slaves from bondage. Britain and France would have more than likely entered the war if he hadn't.

Three hundred thousand (300,000) white American northern soldiers, an average age of 28 years old, died to free the Southern slaves. No other time in history has one race sacrificed so many to free another.

And now, in America and elsewhere, it is being demanded that the ancestors of those who lost their lives pay reparations.

Where is the logic?

Expand full comment

It's not logic. It's greed. Greed at any cost.

Expand full comment

Stephen, thank you for the historical reminder. We often lose sight of historical contexts in which major decisions were made and then make assumptions that fit our current perspectives.

Lincoln did not set out to free the slaves. That was not his objective.

Lincoln's objective was to keep the states united under one federal government but the practice of slavery in half the country demanded a tolerance for slavery in the other half, tolerance that was wearing thin as many other nations outlawed slavery altogether. He attempted to walk a tight rope that was breaking in the middle.

Lincoln / the politicians and generals from the northern states, thought that the rebellion would soon die out for lack of resources and then the southern states would want to rejoin the union. That would only happen if slavery were still tolerated by the northern states, hence the reason that Lincoln was hedging on the question of slavery during his campaign and early administration. By late 1862, however, it was apparent that there was no way to resolve differences peacefully. The southern states didn't trust the northern states to remain sympathetic to their cause.

The south, as you rightly mention, would soon receive support from European nations who were becoming aware of the growing power of the still new nation across the ocean that was seen as a developing threat to their hegemony on world trade. The issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863 was a desperate attempt to isolate the south from their potential allies, an attempt that apparently worked very well.

Expand full comment

I agree; Lincoln changed the cause for the war to a higher moral order not because he liked blacks but because he was desperate.

The reason for my comment was to focus not on Lincoln but on the 300,000 whites who gave up their lives for the emancipation of enslaved people. They made the supreme sacrifice and now are burdening their ancestors to pay reparation to a race that they sacrificed their lives to free.

Please do not confer that I am making racist remarks, for I am trying to ground my logic in defense and be the voice of the American soldier who died.

For would not logic dictate that gratitude and thanks by the 40 million blacks of America today pay reparation to the families of those who lost their sons?

This year, half the nation celebrated Veterans Day on Friday the 10th, and the other half celebrated on the 11th.

I am curious, since Arab nations were heavily, and still are, invested in the slave trade what will they pay? While I am no fan of colonization, almost every nation has been a party to it over the centuries. From what I have heard from actual ‘Africans’ who legally immigrated from their countries of origin, corruption is absolutely rife in most central and southern African nations. I have seen it in action in one country that I have visited on the continent. Should I blame today’s Catholics for terrorizing my English ancestors who fled here for religious freedom? No. How MANY times must each generation apologize for the sins of the long since past generations? And if my ancestors were scratching out a living in what came to be called New England how are they responsible? What do my children and grandchildren have to do with this? I find slavery absolutely disgusting, but it’s been a rather long road for the people of this nation trying to make things better and more level for our fellow citizens, only to have our eyes spat in as not good enough… you must continue to grovel.

Wycliffe would beg to differ. The Roman Catholic church as well as Queen Mary did go after the dissenters. QE1 went after the Puritans.

James I and Charles I were the monarchs during Puritans era. QE1 was closet Catholic, which is probably why she only imprisoned her sister Mary and considered naming her the heir. Her father Henry VIII earned the title Defender of the Faith from Catholic Church...before his revolt. And Wycliffe was declared complete heretic more than a hundred years before Henry VIII. “Sola scriptura” does not make him right.

Why are you arguing that the Catholic Church didn't terrorize proto-protestants or Queen Elizabeth I didn't persecute dissenters (which were often Puritans)? They did.

"Reparation justice" is a type of social justice, but as the black economist Thomas Sowell, points out iin his recently published book, the "rich" have the ability to move their capital elsewhere when when threatened by confiscation of it. thus, the effect is not to make poor people richer but rather is to make them poorer.

Check out the United Nations UNDRIP program. This is what Canada is following with regard to native Canadians. The most recent payment was over a billion dollars and it never, ever ends. Canada is also giving away our Crown land to them- massive amounts- and Crown land is supposed to belong to ALL of us. UNDRIP is going to bankrupt Canada and I believe New Zealand is going down the same road. There is a desperate need for the UN to be dismantled immediately.

I believe it was Australia that was asked on a ballot measure to allow the 'natives' to have special representation in their Parliament. I watched a Breitbart I think it was, with a reporter asking voters what they thought in advance. Seems many felt that this was a ruse of some sort as the 'natives' had a vote just like everyone else as to who serves in the Parliament.

I wonder if it was just a form of ammunition to insight the 'natives'. We do that a lot here.

Reparations - Reviving Racism in order to favor a different group of people by taking money from people who did not exhibit racism to others who were not victims of it.

The ONLY component of Reparations that has any truth to it is that slaves were at a disadvantage financially and therefore weren't able to hand down money to their descendants. The solution isn't to use race to fix this, but to make sure that anyone in poverty gets help and those who are amassing billions have their income limited. It isn't about race, it is about money disparity.
