Whole Countries Want Slavery Reparations

The greed and sense of entitlement that have come to characterize a certain privileged minority group reach their most pathological extreme in the demand for “reparations” — unearned wealth transfers in amounts so grotesquely excessive as to in effect enslave the rest of the population. Now whole countries want to get in on the looting spree:

Speaking at the London School of Economics this week, Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley redoubled her push for slavery reparations, saying that the movement demanding payment for historical wrongs had become a more pressing issue following the resurgence of Black Lives Matter and the [fentanyl overdose] of George Floyd in the United States in 2020.

The leftist Bajan leader, of the Barbados Labour Party, claimed that her country was owed a staggering $4.9 trillion in reparations for slavery from former colonial powers…

Numbers have been crunched on behalf of crybully moochers:

The Barbadian prime minister cited figures compiled by the Boston-based Brattle Group, which has claimed that Britain owes $24 trillion to 14 different countries over the transatlantic slave trade. The group has also asserted that France owes $9.2 trillion, the Netherlands owes $4.86 trillion, and Spain owes $17.1 trillion for their roles in slavery.

For comparison, the annual Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Barbados is estimated by the International Monetary Fund to be around $6.2 billion this year, meaning that the demanded reparations would amount to 790 times the yearly economic output of the entire country.

If it hadn’t been for slavery, potential reparations recipients would be back in the land of their ancestors, digging under rotting logs for bugs to eat rather than demanding other people’s money. That’s why Mohammed Ali wisely thanked God that his “granddaddy got on that boat.”

Meanwhile, back in Africa,

The calls for reparations from Mottley came days after the granddaughter of former South African President Nelson Mandela demanded that the British Royal Family personally pay for its role in colonialism in Africa. Ndileka Mandela told the BBC last week that payoffs to Africa would be necessary for the “healing” to begin.

Now that reparations are underway, the healing won’t finish until civilization has been looted out of existence.
