Bob Johnson Calls for Reparations


Black billionaire Bob Johnson makes the case for reparations for Black Americans...

In a recent interview Bob Johnson proposes a $14 trillion reparations package.

The former BET owner outlines how slavery, Jim Crow laws, property redlining and unequal educational opportunities have created a wealth gap and that a big bold action of atonement is required to solve civil unrest.

Bob doesn’t understand. The only POWER that can transfer the wealth /dominion back to the so called Black Man is The Most High. That’s who took it away and put us on the bottom in the first place. My people. PRAISE AND HONOR YOUR GOD... ONLY.

As much as I would like reparations, it's not going to happen because the truth is America is running on fumes and is flat broke, literally. We have no gold or silver backing our dollar and a crash in inevitable. Buffett and the Rothschild family have already been pulling out of our dollar system and so that ship has sailed. The only thing that can really work is ending race on all long form birth certificates, yes they still record the mothers race, and to it end race on ALL documents so there isn't anymore systemic tracking and zoning. There are many things we can do but reparations should have been given in the 1970s because now its never going to happen. It will cause a civil war because lots of folks are broke. We have to look inward like other groups because we have a lot of work to do. Our grandparents deserved reparations but msny fools today will spend theirs on Gucci. If reparations happen it should be given to working adults, not slackers

I agree. Plus, a lot of blacks during slavery are now yt passing. And I would feel some type of way seeing yt ppl get a portion of those reparations. And then you have the yt passing negros that denied their lineage in favor of living amongst yt ppl. I don't know how I'd feel about folks who hated their black lineage and tried to circumvent their blackness, only to have their lineage rewarded for it generations later. And then, most modern blacks don't deserve reparations and have no financial literacy. That money would be gone in hours and given to yt/Jewish establishments and we'd be right back at step 1. Awhile dealing with racism and a bunch of other ism's because now that they've cut us a check, it's meant to abolish all wrongdoing and any form of discrimination or disrespect should be tolerated since they've paid out billions. We just need to hold off on making reparations the center of our movement.

That's that last piece Dr. King was on, when Malcolm X had to pull him aside and drop the knowledge, of them being the original inhabitants of this land, the true Native Americans not the hybrids they push out in front. And Dr. King told them hoes in washington when he come he's coming for his check, they murdered him shortly after. They are going to have to give it up one way or another, they already see how the age of Aquarius is kicking off, the power of melanin will superseed all.

It sure would be nice, but as I said we have so much internal heart work to do as well. Do you know I have Black neighbors who don't even speak to my husband and I but they speak to the White guy nextdoor? It makes absolutely no sense. 5 years and no hellos. Black self hate is real. We as a people have a lot of psychological problems our grandparents did not have. The neighbors are in those Black Greek frats but can't speak to a blue collar black man but kisses the blue collar white guy's entire behind. If you give some Black folks a dollar they will go crazy trying to be White. These are not lightskin Blacks to the poster claiming people are passing. No on is more lotal to Blacks than mixed folks and so cut it out. These pure d Black folks have issues and you know it. This is a heart issue, not complexion based. My neighbors are brown and dark and very stuck up.

As stated in this post by bloggers. Its not going to happen.
If black ppl got reparations YT's would find a reason to want the same. The Indians would be first in line.

I understand what you're saying but reparations would include *all* black people. Light skinned, medium toned, dark skinned - including biracials - and including the uncle Tom blacks as well. I only mentioned "YT Passing" blacks because their lineage may include black slaves - even though they themselves have never been confronted with the ills that come from being "black" (non-passing, irrespective of brown tone). Because it's like, yt ppl are benefiting off of both ends of the spectrum.

Too late Bob. The Dollar is about to collapse so therefore money ain’t worth shit no more. Plus they ain’t giving our black asses nothing. Soon as they try to give us money all these mixed and white mofos gonna claim they’re black just to get some cash. Fuck that

Your white racist ass can take a roll of dollar bills, and shove them so far up your ass that they come out of your white racist filthy mouth. I hope you choke on them.

Where was all this talk about reparations when he was making deals to sell BET -- the first and most influential Black only media outlet of its time -- to White Viacom? And what did he do with those billions that he made off of the backs and minds of young Black men and women who were initially glued to his entertainment medium to catch educational shows like Teen Summit or BET News, only to then be lured into watching BET Uncut??

Fuck Bob Johnson and his opinions. And I don't give a shit if he threw a couple of dollars at some HBCUs over the years. He had the means, motive and opportunity to usher in a new wave of Black enlightenment and empowerment through his television and media empire but instead squandered it and spent his money ensuring his daughter took horse riding lessons and went to debutante balls in France like his White counterparts. And now I'm supposed to listen to his rant about reparations? Nigga please.

Black people need to stop acting like just because we're owed something that we're going to get it. If White folks gave a damn about us collecting what we were owed for our ancestor's 400 years of oppression they sure as hell wouldn't be doing EVERYTHING in their power to keep that oppression going, i.e. redlining, educational disparity, housing discrimination, voter suppression, you name it!
