You Can’t Make This Stuff Up Dept.

     If anything still requires explanation in this Age of the Absurd, it’s what sort of genetic engineering (or conditioning through drugs and torture) produces people with this degree of barefaced gall:

     Susan Rice, who lied on five Sunday News shows about Benghazi, claims that systemic racism cost the economy $16T.

     “In the last 20 years, the U.S. had a GDP shortfall of $16 trillion due to discrimination against black Americans,” Susan Rice, director of the United States Domestic Policy Council, said during a speech at the National Action Network convention. “If we closed our racial gaps, we could add another $5 trillion to GDP over just the next five years. And in case you’re wondering, that’s not my math, that’s according to Citibank.”

     She is talking about wealth redistribution, reparations, and justifying by making whites the cause of the wealth inequality.

     She is quoting a ridiculous 2020 report by Citibank globalists. They were blaming the GDP shortfall on systemic racism. The report presents no proof of a system run by white people that keeps black and Hispanic people down. They conjure up their theory based on disparate outcomes. These ‘researchers’ aren’t talking about equality. They are talking about equity.

     The claim is that without the black-white wage gap, $2.7 trillion in income would have been added for consumption or investment. That multiplied into $16T. This is just made up. The tale goes on from there.

     It’s not a new variety of claim. Black race-hustlers have been attributing every shortcoming of their race to “systemic racism” for decades now. Thomas Sowell even noted it in The Vision of the Anointed, concerning a claim by Alicia Munnell of the Boston Federal Reserve that the difference in mortgage approval rates was due to racism. Here’s the critical exchange between Munnell and Peter Brimelow, quoted in the January 1993 issue of Forbes magazine:

     Forbes: Did you ever ask the question that if defaults appear to be more or less the same among blacks and whites, that points to mortgage lenders making rational decisions?
     Munnell: No.

     Later in same the interview:

     Munnell: I do believe that discrimination occurs.
     Forbes: You have no evidence?
     Munnell: I do not have evidence….No one has evidence.

     Mind-boggling…but typical, as is Susan Rice’s wholly unsupported claim. But that’s what you get from racialist blacks given access to the media. Quoth the Buddha:

     Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – no matter if I have said it! – except it agree with your own reason and your own common sense.

    I all for reparations with a certain criteria – If we start with $TBD million it would be based on the following but please add to this as this is off top of my head

    Commentator on TV had DNA done due to a show and found out he was 5% Black. Nobody in his family had any inkling. So what would his percentage be? That’s why we need a sliding scale. Think about reparations as what it would do to no more free rent, welfare, food stamps, etc. There would have to be provisions for handicap people whether mentally or physically. Lots of details to work out but this isn’t going away. It can’t be done on state by state basis so lets do this federally on a cost basis of what would we be savings vs loss.  Current adult generation and progeny but not your progeny having their progeny. The spigot goes on but it is turned off completely to never be turned on again. We are not going to be responsible for people enslaved in other places.

     DNA – Paid based on your %
    Proof that your great grandparents were actual slaves in America.
    Proof of citizenship of the United States of America
    Document, TBD, that under NO circumstances will you ever, for any reason, be able to collect any government help for the entirety of your lifetime. No Exceptions.
    All minor children money will be placed in a Trust Fund for them until age of 21 or graduation of college or 2 year trade school
    Once and Done. No do overs Ever. No suing for more money. This applies to all adults 21 and over and any children you may have but their money will have the same restriction of all the above based on their DNA

    1. Pie in the sky, Glasslass. You know that grifters always come back for more — and politicians eager to buy blocks of votes will get right behind them.

      There is no price that would buy off the race hustlers for a year, much less permanently — no matter what documents you might have them sign. They will always be back shrieking for more.

     DNA – Paid based on your %
    Proof that your great grandparents were actual slaves in America.
    Proof of citizenship of the United States of America
    (New) Paid air travel to the African country of your choice, surrender of US Passport and citizenship with agreement never to return to the United States.

    Frank is right…all pie the sky.  The grifters will grift as along as there are suckers willing to pay, especially to  pay with someone else’s (taxpayers) money.
