Harris: If we start to examine what have been the outcomes of the history of slavery and legal segregation and discrimination, you can look at the fact and anyone can tell you who's a mental health specialist that when people have experienced trauma, and it has been undiagnosed and untreated, you will see certain public health outcomes.

Solution?

Harris: And so if you recognize the trauma that existed, and we want to end what are avoidable health outcomes, you need to put resources and direct resources, extra resources into those communities that have experienced that trauma.

Who has experienced the trauma of slavery?

Nobody living that I'm aware of.

Hell in a few more years nobody living will have experienced segregation or anything but the Civil rights Act. The majority of today's AA population came of age AFTER the CRA

Russians were held as slaves well past 1865. Do they have high blood pressure?

Whoa whoa

Rep Omar has established that bad things that happened to white people in the past don't matter because they are in the past

Well, that's interesting because slavery has been dead for generations but we still have legal segregation practiced by blacks who have started separating themselves from whites by having their own graduations, safe spaces, meetings, groups etc where white people aren't allowed.

And, the only legal discrimination I know of is Affirmative Action which is federally mandated racism, so it seems to me white people are the ones that should have a beef here.

So is she trying to say there is such a thing as inter-generational trauma?

This is nothing short of buying votes. Reparations, wealth distribution, free this, free that. All subterfuge for what it really boils down to...paying for votes.

We learned recently from Kamala's father that Kamala is a direct descendent of black slave owners in Jamaica. Also, the democrat party is the party of slavery and the Klan. I am a Republican and not a descendent of slave owners. I expect Kamala and the DNC should get her checkbooks out to pay for the sins of their predecessors but not expect me to be involved in their penance.

There have been BP medications specifically genetically tailored to the black community because of metabolic pathways they have differently than caucasians......by a lot of blacks wrefuse to take them and request the "white" drugs....because they think the white man is trying to pawn the bad drugs off on the black man.

The whole Tuskegee syphilis thing really hurt our credibility.... that was half a century ago...people have long memories.

By that logic, maybe the DNC and all the Democrats in Congress need to pony up and pay reparations based on the decades of trauma they have caused conservative Americans for the crap they have foisted on this country.


"It is centuries of slavery violence associated with slavery," Harris said. "There was never any real intervention to break up what had been generations of people experiencing the highest forms of trauma, and trauma undiagnosed and untreated leads to physiological outcomes."

Ever hear of the civil war? The Civil Rights Movement? The Great Society and all its social programs?
These people are flat out idiots.

Since the Democratic Party was the pro-slavery party, shouldn't they pay any reparations?

I'd respect Dems more if they were just honest and said "you know what? Vote for me and I'll steal from the people who don't support me and give to you in exchange for your vote!"

She once heard someone say "I'm going to whip you so hard your great grandkids will feel it," and assumed it was actually possible.

Actually slavery is still a huge worldwide problem and a problem in the US too. But since it's preformed almost exclusively by people of color (various shades) libs ignore it.

What about the fact that every damn time they check out at Walgreens they're leaving with a bag of hot fries and the most sugary soda you can buy? Also - look at obesity rates among them.

No, black people have high blood pressure because a bunch of them basically live on McDonalds, Big Red, and Doritos. ****ing idiot.

Let's be honest, there are still slaves in modern times. People are rescued from it here in America still today.

What she is referring to is the average black American that might have had an ancestor enslaved when it was legal back pre 1860s. This is pandering to the lowest common denominator. Trying to get votes. I expect Spartacus to 1 up her with an additional cherry on top offer.

I guess a daily diet of McDonalds, frozen pizzas, and soul food has nothing to do with it.

Blacks are also predisposed to sickle cell vs other ethnicities. I guess that comes from all that swinging of sickles in the white man's crops 200 years ago too.

Yeah, they just arrested a black couple for owning a black slave in Houston not long ago. It was Houston right?

This is why she's saying that. It's all Oprah's fault.
http://articles.latimes.com/2007/may/17/opinion/oe-obasogie17
Quote:

WHEN Oprah Winfrey talks, people listen -- about 8 million every day. Which is why a recent Ask Dr. Oz segment on "Oprah" is so troubling. An audience member asked: "Why do I sweat so much?" After explaining that excessive sweating can result from a thyroid condition, body toxins or hypertension, Dr. Mehmet Oz turned to Winfrey to ask: "Do you know why African Americans have high blood pressure?"
Winfrey replied studiously: "African Americans who survived [the slave trade's Middle Passage] were those who could hold more salt in their body." To which Dr. Oz rejoiced: "That's perfect!"
Far from it. Though well-intentioned, Winfrey's answer last month effectively lent her credibility, star power and billion-dollar brand to a dubious theory known as the "slavery hypothesis."

Hate to break it to you, but that's not true. Blacks are still enslaving each other in africa. They always have, it was only outlawed in white countries.

So how do you figure out how much to pay? More to the old folks who are closer chronologically to the event? Does having watched Roots or The Color Purple qualify you for some money?

If this happens, I am going to buy a lot of stock in companies that make hair extensions, high calorie snack foods. Plus Glamour nails.

The cash will be spent faster than a cat can lick its a$$, then the recipient will be flat broke again...

Throwing money at this socio economic problem will not fix it but it will buy votes, that the dems already have so what again is the point of all this.

I worked for Dr. Pepper one Summer back in college. When we went to the black parts of town, we'd deliver much more Big Red than Dr. Pepper. In the white areas it was the exact opposite. Now you know....
