    Who knew money could repair the "deep-seated wounds" of time?

    Lmao. The one in Evanston is for 16 people. Yes, 16.

    The term “token” comes to mind.

    Better use that money for guns because their own neighbors are going to come rob their ass when they find out.

    "The money can be used in any way that the families want."

    Exactly what they want to hear.

    Are they doing any tracking to see what changes, if any, this will cause? Or, just like all social programs, do we just through money at it and yell racism when nothing changes?

    Would you say you're a bit of a race-ist?

    Its a beautiful thing really. Feeling like a "victim" (whether they are actually a victim or just a victim in their own mind) is the exact opposite feeling of empowerment. By being "given" something because a group is perceived as victims, it further oppresses them. Its rather simple. Its part of what experts call the "psychology of oppression." All of this is well and good because it will just make it easier for my kids to get ahead in life. The competition is being neutered and it will be easier for my kids to climb the mountain.

    Side note...I sit on a committee that reviews scholarship applications (college students) and I just finished reviewing nearly 200 applications last week. When asked the question about why they deserve scholarship money, 90% of the applicants played up how hard they have had it in life and played the "victim." I rated every single applicant as a "definite yes" for scholarship money who fell in the other 10% who actually wrote what they have done to earn the scholarship. It was incredible to read the 90% who had "sob stories" etc. Yeah, life is hard, but the question is what have you done to earn it, not why do you deserve it. It made me disgruntled. LOL

    What makes me laugh is that instead of looking at why people end up staying where they are in the social classes we automatically attribute a racial component glancing over the countless cases where other races end up in the same boat generation after generation.

    My parents were poor when they were growing up, they were poor in my early years. Nobody attributed our whiteness as the reason or excuse.

    There are people that quite literally embrace being poor. They embrace the lifestyle, generation after generation is making that an acceptable life. I graduated with a chick that in our mid thirties was ecstatic she was a grandmother and her daughter got promoted to “drive thru attendant”.

    Meanwhile, my parents, when I was frowning up, drilled it into my head that jobs like that were no way to support a family. That if I wanted a family I needed to be able to provide a good life.

    The issue is mindset first.


    Joe Biden has sniffed here.

    When I read about this, I instantly thought of the Dave Chapelle skit reparations. That is, realistically, how I see this money being spent.

    You're definitely on to something here. Let me add just one thought to it:

    The choices you make and the way you behave yourself/treat others overwhelmingly impacts how your life turns out when compared to unconscious bias and blatant bias that some people may have. In other words, the decisions you make in life and how you conduct yourself as a member of society are what matter, not what others (who don't even know you!) think about you because of your gender, sexual orientation, race, weight, etc.

    Look up Shelby Steele's "What Killed Michael Brown" if you have not already.
