Black Professor Calls for Individual Reparation Accounts for Whites

The 620,000 lives lost in the U.S. Civil War were not enough. Systemic discrimination in the name of Affirmative Action isn’t enough. The $trillions confiscated and redistributed as welfare payments aren’t enough. The senseless violence isn’t enough. Not even Barack Obama is enough. Whites still need to be punished, even if the punishment is directly self-inflicted. So says luxuriantly oppressed Georgetown University sociology professor Michael Eric Dyson, in a nauseatingly obsequious interview with New York Times Magazine intended to promote his book Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America:

NYTM: At the end of your sermon, you do a “benediction” section, in which you talk about making reparations on the local and individual level: donating to groups like the United Negro College Fund or a scholarship program, but also, to cite your example from the book, paying “the black person who cuts your grass double what you might ordinarily pay.” That gave me pause!

Dyson: Good! I used to say in church, “If the sermon ain’t making you a little bit uncomfortable, it ain’t effective.” Look, if it doesn’t cost you anything, you’re not really engaging in change; you’re engaging in convenience. You’re engaged in the overflow. I’m asking you to do stuff you wouldn’t ordinarily do. I’m asking you to think more seriously and strategically about why you possess what you possess.

According to liberal ideology, you don’t own wealth because you worked hard to create it. You own it because blacks are oppressed.

NYTM: I agree with reparations, but maybe this is my white privilege speaking: I can’t imagine actually doing that.

Dyson: That is what I meant by an I.R.A.: an individual reparations account. You ain’t got to ask the government, you don’t have to ask your local politician — this is what you, an individual, conscientious, “woke” citizen can do.

NYTM: But charity can’t be the end of it, right? The Koch brothers gave the United Negro College Fund $25 million, but I doubt you would consider them “woke.”

Dyson: No. Martin Luther King Jr. believed that charity is a poor substitute for justice. But I ain’t turning $25 million down.

He sure ain’t.

Imagine a white guy who drops “ain’t” into every other sentence getting a prestigious high-paying gig like professor at high-priced Georgetown University. To get an idea of the quality of his scholarship, consider that apparently while he was working his scam at the University of Pennsylvania, Dyson

gave an Ivy League seminar in Great Religious Thinkers (at the time he was a professor of “religious studies”) which was solely devoted to the religious works of the rapper, gangster and convicted rapist Tupac Shakur.

Crude race hustlers like Dyson milk neurotic white guilt for power, privilege, position, and cold hard cash the way a dermatologist might milk pus from a festering carbuncle.

    Is any politician ever going to ask, “Hey, black people, when can we take off the training wheels?”

    Here’s your “reparations”: Everybody buy a black person an alarm clock.

  • geeknerd

    Any “white” person all of whose ancestors came to the US after slavery was abolished, or any of whose ancestors a) fought for the Union in the Civil War, b) was an active abolitionist, or c) was a conductor on the Underground Railroad should be excused from paying reparations. Actually, if all your ancestors were Yankees during the Civil War, you shouldn’t have to pay reparations at all.
    By the way, aren’t welfare and EBT payments already reparations?

  • Karma’s Janitor

    Well they already have their own inner city autonomy that operates like an Indian reservation
    So far their main enterprises are drugs and murder
    Nobody is trying to stop it

  • stone cruiser

    Your racist pathetic ass can have my money when you take it from my dead fingers.

  • TrojanMan

    No amount of reparations would satiate the “community” so why bother. I would be almost certain if you go back in anyone’s family tree far enough you will find slave blood. Where are my reparations?

    How about this… I would be happy to pay reparations to any former slave of the US. Whats that? They are all dead?… well then i owe you nothing. Moreover, none of my ancestors were slave owners. Why should i have to pay reparations for something not even my ancestors were guilty of? Lastly am i guilty of my ancestors sins? To liberals the answer is yes.

    Oh and one more thing. How do we know this this guy or any black for that matter is descended from slaves here in the US? How do we know his ancestors did not immigrate here after the 13A?

  • geeknerd

    Dyson looks like a younger Henry Kissinger with a slight tan, or maybe Ben Stein after adding a few pounds.

  • KirklesWorth

    Instead of the title “Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America”, it should have been called “Whines We Cannot Stop: A Lecture to Racist Caucasians”.

  • Nobama

    I’d gladly support a one way ticket back to Africa.

  • I will give you reparations when you give reparations to the other blacks for, yes, owning black slaves.

  • FeatherBlade

    Is it the lighting, or does he look approximately as black as Shaun King?

  • Jack Bauer

    To quote some of my friends that live in Jersey:
    “Hey…professa’…..I got ya reparations right heeya!…”

  • WMD

    “Is any politician ever going to ask, “Hey, black people, when can we take off the training wheels?”

    “Here’s your “reparations”: Everybody buy a black person an alarm clock.”

    Yeah, I’m thinking I’m gonna steal that.

    Post of the day RK.

  • WMD

    Begging hands and bleeding hearts will only cry out for more.

  • docwatson55

    Fine – but only if you set up a reparations mechanism funded by the families of the criminals that commit black-on-black, and black-on white violence.

  • FeatherBlade

    Somewhere on the internet (which I can’t find) there is an open letter in which a man traces his family tree to attempt to figure out which of his ancestors (back to the beginning of time) enslaved which others and how much he would owe himself in reparations for their actions.

  • tom56

    Exactly my thought! Doubt that he qualifies as 1/32nd ‘negroid’ blood. Use a baseball bat on his head. If it bounces, he may move up to 1/16th.

  • tom56

    Screw ‘reparations’, howzabout ‘repatriation? Send’em back to afrika.

  • tom56

    “Work” is most definitely a 4 -letter word for the majority of ‘them’. Sadly, for all too many, regardless of color.

  • Torcer

    I’m sure that it’s only a coincidence that it’s the same acronym of a big pile of quid the nation Socialist Left would love to ‘appropriate’…. /s

    I’ll just place this video here for your edification:

  • Bosun Higgs

    “Reparation accounts”? What a minute—you mean Dems want to pay conservatives for all the racism demagoguery they have subjected them to?

  • geeknerd

    See my post

  • Nan

    That’s what Liberia was for not many took them up on it.

  • KHarn

    That’s the sort of bullshit my people have had to put up with for 150 years. How about you Yankees let us go since we’re considered perpetual rebels and traitors? We’ll let you have all the damn negros since the New England shipping interests plied the slave trade and demanded a provision in the US Constitution keep the slave trade legal until 1808.

  • KHarn

    Marcus Garvey in the 1920’s started a “back to Africa” movement. He was arrested for embezzlement and fraud.

  • KHarn

    I’d support that as a compromise. Fine them according to the severity of their crime (Crimes against people and property only, not breaking city ordinances and the like) and place it in a fund to be distributed each year. Keep the staff at a minimum and have them meet only to over see the distribution to prevent the usual government theft.

  • StephaneDumas

    And when they’ll spent the money at the right place. Anyone who remember that skit from the Dave Chappelle Show? (for some unknown reasons, I can’t view in Canada, the videos from Comedy Central US but I can see the ones from Comedy Central UK, I’ll post both version)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZFHG8wWC5s
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRZN7IzvCVs

    Btw, how about reparations to the descendants of the French families who survived the Haitian revolution? Looks like that kid will shout “that’s racist”.

    And there’s the big pandora’s box then Dyson should be careful to open with the case of some white peoples have some black ancestry like Charlie LeDuff and vice-versa?

    My ancestors, being Mormons, were kicked out of the United States by their loving Christian neighbors in 1847. Having no alternatives, they settled in Utah, believing that no one else would want that land.

    So when the War of Northern Aggression came around, none of us were invited to play.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    It’s not too late. Any black folks that feel that their lot in life is unfair in the US should be free to accept a one way ticket to “the old country.” Make it into the Utopia that you desire, free from white influence.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    My great-great grandmother was named Bridget Murphy. Do I get some reparations, too?

  • Nan

    You really think the Africans want these lazy jerks?

  • Nan

    To qualify for further reparations, black people must a) prove that they were descended from slaves; b) have no Caucasian DNA, and c) are worse off materially than they would be if their ancestors had remained in Africa.

  • Nan

    So if you weren’t invited to play, why did you call it the War of Northern Aggression? Only southerners do that.

  • 762×51

    True “freedom” and all the bushmeat you can eat, yeah!!

  • grayjohn

    How about you get a real job and shut your pie hole? You have never been a slave. You don’t know any slaves, and you don’t deserve to profit from the suffering of those long dead who were slaves. You asshole.

  • bigg_tomm_2000

    The turd asks, “I’m
    asking you to think more seriously and strategically about why you
    possess what you possess.” My answer would be because I worked my tail off to get it, and I have prepared an armed response for would be thieves. In his fantasy-land he really thinks life is easy for white people.

  • octa bright

    I suppose that I am a bit dense but I simple do not understand. Why on earth should I care what this individual thinks? Could a wiser individual please explain?

    Mixed feelings. On the one hand, I hate con men. On the other hand, anyone who is braying jackass, drooling stupid enough to fall for his scam probably deserve to be fleeced. Including the suckers who pay 50 K a year to have them educate their kids.

  • NadirKhan11

    “Crude race hustlers like Dyson milk neurotic white guilt for power, privilege, position, and cold hard cash the way a dermatologist might milk pus from a festering carbuncle.” Ain’t that the truth..

  • Although I don’t claim to be a “wiser individual” I will make a comment.
    You should care because it is professors like Dyson who is educating our young adults who will someday be educators themselves.
    He may have a diploma hanging on the wall in his office that shows he earned a degree but the only thing he learned was how to BS his way into a position at Georgetown University as a sociology professor.
    Which, from what I understand is not a hard thing to do.
    And, America can not change for the better, however you define that term, without being educated as to what makes America better.
    And, Dyson ain’t got a clue how to do that.

    You might ask when this ends, but you’re missing the obvious. They’re not looking for reparations, they want tribute. This stone age con man is just putting a spin on threatening you for money. These damn fools never had it as good anywhere. Even back in the homelands that spawned them they eat at your expense.
    When will this end? When you make it stop. There is a thinly disguised threat behind every shakedown. Gibsmedat or else. Riots, looting and violence. Of course, you’ll get that anyway, cause that’s pretty typical of all these ingrates really do for or to America.
    Let me clue you in. Savages are either at your feet or at your throat. If you try to befriend them or make them your “equal”, they will kill you. Anyone who knows these creatures well can back up what I say. This fake “intellectual” may as well be a witch doctor. This sham is wearing thin.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    I lived in the east for some time. The simple truth is that there was no requirement in the constitution for states to remain within the union.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    The problem tends to solve itself for folks living in Africa.

  • Caitlin

    Notice they don’t care about slavery going on around the world today. Not a peep.

  • bobdog19006

    Here’s a buck. Go buy yourself a Snickers. You know you get all racist and shi t when you hungry.
