New Website Lets Whites Give Reparations to Blacks
In one of the most embarrassing examples of leftist regression that we’ve seen in some time, Seattle artist Natasha Marin has started a website so that white people can pay “reparations” to people of color. While many leftists support the idea of slavery reparations through the federal government, Marin proposes that white people should simply give of their personal time and money to wash away all of that guilt they must be feeling for the sins of their ancestors.
Or, to put it the way Marin puts it on her website, white people can use this program to “extricate themselves from the guilt they are mired in.”
She warns, however, that even the most generous donations will “in no way pardon years of systemic abuse,” so if you were hoping to atone for Evil White America by giving a black kid a couple of bucks, that’s apparently not in the cards.
What kind of things do people of color want from whites on Marin’s website? Well, on her example page, she encourages scenarios like the following:
POC: I want to scream and cuss at someone.
White Person: I volunteer as tribute. How do we set this up?
No, it’s not meant as a satire of the reparations movement; Marin appears to be dead serious in her cause, no matter how ridiculous and insulting it might seem.
And insulting is the only word for it. Sure, there are always those individuals eager for a handout – not unique to people of color – but the vast majority of people in this country would be appalled at the idea of such a website. Marin and other leftists don’t seem to understand that human beings reach fulfillment by relying on their own talents and hard work. They don’t want an allowance from white people, for god’s sake.
Well, that always used to be the case, anyway.
In the meantime, we have liberal schools teaching young children of color that the entire system is rigged against them, that white people are evil and privileged, and that they can’t expect to get ahead in such an environment. If enough of these children take this message to heart, they will spend their lives unable to fulfill that simplest and greatest of human achievements: freedom.
By trying to make up for years of enslavement, liberals like Marin are ensuring it never ends.
