Redheads and Reparations

Posted: June 22, 2014 in Uncategorized

 

Here we go.  Another example of the Liberal Gimme Culture.  Food stamps, housing subsidies and cell phones for crackheads is never enough.  Always gotta push it that extra step.

After reading Te-Nehisi Coates left-wing drivel in the Atlantic raising the subject of reparations once again( “The Radical Practicality of Reparations”http://www.theatlantic.com/ta-nehisi-coates/)  I thought maybe it was time to set the record straight.large

Trading blacks in America is a relatively new convention, but for centuries, dating back to Roman times, the Scots-Irish have been an enslaved race. Long before the black man ever set foot in this country, my ancestors were being sold on the auction block.  The first black slave was sold by the Dutch East India company in 1719.  But, as far back as 1652, as documented in the Egerton Manuscript in the British Museum “any person…found begging or vagrant in any town, parish or place [shall be] conveyed into the port of London or unto any other port from where such person or persons may be shipped into a foreign colony or plantation”.  An estimated 100000 Scots made their way to the New World in this fashion prior to 1730.  My ancestors were quite irksome to their overseers, so they were rounded up, or , in some instances, kidnapped, and sold for horrendous profit.  Children were no exception.  Polticial prisoners were routinely sold into slavery and anyone caught wearing tartan was subject to deportation.  Conditions aboard ship were deplorable and Scottish slaves were treated just as badly as their black brethren, sometimes worse, specifically because they were white.

Slavery in any form is just plain wrong; no one should live like that, and I find it abhorrent.  But, instead of bitching about reparations, we brought you whisky,  and gave you Gerard Butler.

You’re welcome…..
