If you were an Armenian Christian who fled your homeland to Glendale, California in 1915 to avoid genocide by the Ottoman Turks that killed about 1 million of your countrymen and women, how would you feel if Would you pay reparations for the end of black slavery? more than 50 years before your arrival?
Not so good, I could imagine.
The whole concept of so-called reparations in America is stuck in such contradictions. Ten million people have immigrated to this country from all over the world and are still doing so more than a century after the end of slavery.

Many of these people suffered from stressful – sometimes extremely stressful, even life-threatening – conditions.
Yet the Biden government – under the mere mask of what is called “justice” as opposed to “equality” – calls on millions of our fellow citizens to pay for a recognized evil, slavery, in which they do not participate remotely.
President Biden and his people pursue this “justice” – essentially a euphemism for reparation – relentlessly for political reasons, in order to further calculated races in our society and to cultivate an endless culture of mourning.
Gandhi’s “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind” means nothing to them.

One particularly egregious way in which they did this was through a recently passed program that gave farmers loans based on their skin color.
It always sounded unconstitutional – aside from being relentlessly racist – and it turned out that the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee declared it so on July 8th.
“The case was brought by the Southeastern Legal Foundation (SLF) and the Mountain States Legal Foundation (MSLF) on behalf of Rob Holman, a Union City farmer. [Tennessee]whose family has farmed the same land in Obion County for generations, ”the SLF website reads.
Commenting on the case, SLF Director of Litigation Braden H. Boucek said: “Today’s victory proves once again that the constitution does not allow the government to treat its citizens differently based on their skin color. State-sanctioned discrimination is wrong and unconstitutional. Racial preferences may not rise again under the name of equity. The constitution is strong and in the face of yet another challenge to its legal guarantee of equality and the self-evident truth that all human beings are created equal, it has been questioned again.

How old-fashioned – and right – of Boucek!
Perhaps, as it did before, the government should have disguised its racism under a higher-pitched, pseudo-intellectual name like “critical agricultural theory”.
Because during the elections they constantly lied to us and themselves about race, either swallowing the critical racial theory entirely or not commenting on the racism contained therein in order to deny themselves of the ultimate evil.
The roots of this behavior go back even further than the overt Obama administration and into black exploitation that has been inherent in the Democratic Party since Lyndon Johnson and long before they could be overtly racist.
We find that this is happening in an extreme, if covert way, in our time. Whether Biden is stupid (doesn’t understand the implications of what he does) or senile is debatable. Understand the people around him.
They see race as the royal road to power. Nothing could be more reprehensible, more retrograde and more dangerous for the future of our country. They should be rejected at all costs.
Bravo to the Southeastern Legal Foundation.
