But attempts to significantly reduce inequality are always seen as divisive by the haves. You've obviously heard of the term "class warfare", and that reflects this.

I'm not claiming it's easy, but I simply think that it has a better chance in realpolitik terms in the US than the reparations thing...

Yeah, he still hasn't indicated whether I am 'black enough' to collect, or how that will be determined.

Seriously. Is it a blood test? Income test? Do you intend to use ancestry.com?

There won't be an answer, because I think the question is being regarded as beyond the pale.

I wonder how the stats regarding blacks in the prison population were gathered? Do you think Cunt has a problem with those stats, or is he pretty sure they are without a doubt black? How about the home ownership stats, or college degrees? Hell, maybe inequality doesn't even exist. Maybe these dumb motherfuckers have just misidentified everyone! -Holy Shit- Someone cut this man a check, he's just saved us a shitload of money.

Anyway, read the recommendations. I think the idea of debt cancellation is a good one. So are some of the police accountability measures. The link is in the first page of this thread.

Take a walk down MLK Blvd and say to the first dude you see "Yo, sup my Nigga?"

If he doesn't shoot you then you're black enough.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

I don't know how the prison population was identified as black. Was it self-identified as black? That sure wouldn't be a problem...no-one would lie for debt-forgiveness, right?

The reason I keep asking, is that without clear terms, this is just wide open for abuse. If you don't care, that's fine, but it isn't all that convincing to me.

Sounds as reasonable as any offering so far.

--for shits 'n giggles--

Why do you hate the little guy Cunt? I'll never get it. Predatory lenders eat us alive, ruin the economy, and who gets bailed out when it all comes tumbling down? The little guy? No, the lender.

But what keeps you up at night? The idea that somewhere someone might be getting away with pretending to be black so they can get out of debt!

I'm telling you the older I get the more advantageous being a criminal looks.

Fake statistics. It's all a social Marxist plot.
