Talking about race

Posted by Al Hathaway Tuesday, October 27, 2009

It's amazing to me that organizations are sponsoring discussions on race. It's as if talking about it will solve the economic, health, and racial disparities within America. Many understand that 40 acres and a mule is a far distant dream. Many understand that reparations is an overdue remedy. Some understand that the tremendous wealth that many within the white community enjoy was derived from the no payment or underpayment of colored labor. Some understand that inventions for which patents should have been given were stolen from colored inventors. What you may not known is that slaves were taxed as property (chattel). As a result states received tax benefits for the insidious practice that forced many of our ancestors to labor and die to enrich others. States owe real money to those of us who understand that there enrichment was also upon our backs. States who derived taxes from the ownership of slaves have a outstanding debt to repay. If you want to talk about race - let's talk about that!
