I'll take old sad Europe over young pestilential immiserated Africa100% of the time, as will you, Charles, and as will every other open borders hypocrite.

@6: Let me to introduce you to my friend, "Splitting Hairs."
Sure you two will hit it off.

Because Men's Health and Pakistani Islamic fundamentalism have so much in common. Why, they're practically the same thing!
May 23 Billy Chav commented on Ta-Nehisi Coates on Reparations in The Atlantic.
@80 Because it was profitable for large slaveholders but not for the country at large. And not even for huge numbers of white southerners. Several hundred thousand Irish were shipped over into indentured servitude in the South. Did they benefit? You could ask their Appalachian descendants.

If the question of reparations focused on identifying large estates of existing wealth that derives directly from slave plantations, and seizing some portion of that, you might have an argument. But these are exactly the kinds if details that Coates and Conyers purposely avoid.
May 22 Billy Chav commented on Ta-Nehisi Coates on Reparations in The Atlantic.
Citing the ethically challenged John Conyers and his content-free HR40 is just more can-kicking. The last thing this country needs is a freaking blue ribbon commission to study "the legacy of slavery," and that's the only concrete proposal in HR40. I'd suggest reading it, it's a lot shorter than Coates' article.
May 22 Billy Chav commented on Ta-Nehisi Coates on Reparations in The Atlantic.
The article is no argument for reparations. It's an extensive list of historical grievances, most of which any semi-educated american will already be familiar with. If there was a single paragraph indicating how these would be funded, or eligibility determined, or what would happen to welfare, AA, other massive public efforts to address the "equity" issue, then I missed it.

"It's just the right thing to do!" doesn't hold up if the program in question will bankrupt or irreparably divide a nation. But Coates can only ever do one thing, which is enumerate complaints. The hard work of thinking through implications-- whatev, someone else can do that.

This little alarm ignores fact that Seattle is the gay-maliest city in the US, including SF. That probably evens the odds.

@12:
Expletive? Check.
Ad hominem? Check.
Doesn't address point? Check.
Adds nothing even of entertainment value? Check.
Defending fake martyr she doesn't really care about, except so far as that fake martyr can be used to attack the wrong kind of white people? Check.

You have it all. 5-star social justice internet comment warrior!

If you watched the trial, and didn't just follow it on Ta-Neshi Coates' Twitter feed, you'd all have to admit that there was much more than reasonable doubt that Saint Trayvon was hunted and stalked by evil "white man" Zimmerman, and that facts largely supported Zimmerman's claim that Martin attacked and was beating the crap out of him while he waited for the cops to show up.

Do you all ever wonder how weird it is that every one of your social justice superheroes turns out to have feet of clay?
May 11 Billy Chav commented on The New Comedy Show in the Colbert Report Time Slot Will Be....
What was funny about that clip? Just one line, or a minute mark. Just seemed like received opinion delivered with the usual cloying snark.
