“You Want What? For Why?”

Black girl, immigrant,

wants reparations paid her:

College should be free!*

 

*(Young lady, whose parents immigrated to the United States, wants reparations paid to her because of slavery.  She says the discrimination, racial prejudice and hatred she has to experience here every day makes her a victim of slavery, too.  Why in the world would her loving and caring parents ever have consented to stay in America under such conditions/  Why would she?  Why did I sweep the floor before hearing her stupid, illogical, silly rant: my rolling around on the deck, clutching my solar plexus from its rolling guffaws and gasps not only swept but polished! Thanks, honey! Your just-so-righteous indignation was all the tonic I needed yesterday afternoon.)
