"Get over it!" .. "You were NEVER a slave!" .. "But only 26% of whites owned slaved." .. "Nobody owes you ANYTHING!" "We didn’t own slaves." .. "Your own kind sold you into slavery!" "Blacks weren’t the only slaves." .. "The Irish were slaves too!" .. "You never picked ANY cotton!" … Denying reparations are owed for the Trans Atlantic slave trade is racist.

“When you hear whites say: ‘get over it,’ ‘slavery was a long time ago,’ ‘my family didn’t own slaves, ‘the Jews owned the slave ships,’ ‘your own kind sold you into slavery,’ and other sentiments like these, know these are the most common excuses these devils will use in attempts to not accept responsibiltity for and make restitution for their kind’s generational race crimes. Know today that these are unacceptable racist statements reparations offenders use in support of their kind’s historical racial terrorism. Whites who make statements like these are just as racially terroristic as the whites who dehumanized and terrorized our ancestors during the slave trade and even in this – the post Trans Atlantic slave trade era. Most often, these are the kinds of whites you will have to defend yourself against in a repartions protest.”

“Why is it only we can be racists,” pretentious and historically ignorant whites often ask. But let us remember that white people wouldn’t do right by blacks out of natural love and, despite their historical revisions, black people have fought for every freedom we have gained here in this country. Now white people want everyone to be able to be a racist. Below, racism’s modern definition is cited:
Modern definition: bq. rac·ism /ˈreɪsɪzəm/–noun 1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others. 2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination. 3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races. Is it surprising that contemporary Western definitions of racism (defined by non other than the heirs of the legacy themselves) modified it to suit their needs.
