Vote reparations

Post by Col Hogan »

This should fix all our political woes... :coffee:



Vote reparations would create possibilities to build what W.E.B. Du Bois called “abolition democracy,” or the practice of achieving a racially just society. Abolition democracy invites us to engage with abolition not as a finite goal but as a radical process of challenging injustices wherever and in whatever form they might appear. Vote reparations would empower us to replace oppressive institutions with life-affirming structures of economic, social, and political equality. And if our elected representatives did not prioritize this transformational work, we could vote them out.

Because white votes currently count more than Black ones, double-counting Black votes would restore electoral balance. Vote reparations would be a giant step toward remedying our nation’s long history of denying and devaluing Black votes. To address systemic racism, we must transform how we choose our government. Even if vote reparations aren’t instituted, Black voters will keep tirelessly dragging our states toward a more perfect union. But just imagine our country if our votes counted twice.

Another reason I laugh when people say the right is the side of anti-democratic inclinations. Complete lunacy.

Random writer at the Nation no one has heard of

vs

the President of the United States and a good portion of GOP Congressmen.

Not exactly a like-for-like "both sides" argument. :coffee:

So the author knows that black votes are exactly 50% of representative power as white votes? Are Hispanic 75%? Jews are 150%?

The author is an assistant professor at Washington and Lee University School of Law...and John StOnge has convinced me that people with advanced degrees have a much higher IQ than people like me with a lowly BA...so I trust him that he’s correct...

Now, he didn’t give us the percentage value for any group other than blacks, so your questions are pure speculation that you’ll need to ask the Professor...

C’mon man! That would be like assuming that all successful business people have achieved their status entirely through hard work, smarts, and guts.

On average. I, of course, have a higher IQ than most PhDs even though I don't have a graduate degree.

And Bill Gates has a higher IQ than me even though he doesn't have a degree at all.

What is your definition of Post College? Say somebody goes right after high school and gets an engineering degree and knocks around for 10 years then decides they want to be a teacher. So they go back and get an education degree and go to work doing what they really feel fulfilled at. They weren't finished with college until they finished with the education degree. Does what happened during the 10 years before they went back to get their education degree count as Post College?

The English meaning is pretty simple: "Post" means "after." But is it after any college experience or after all college experience?

You are splitting hairs here. Post is after. After college. After college is cut and dry and if you can't figure that out for yourself...we shouldn't be allowing you to vote. You clearly have a below average intelligence.
