Democracies are by definition

Democracies are by definition discriminatory in that the majority in theory can impose their will on the minority. So there is a fail right there.

Also does equality end at the border or should all cultures be forced to adopt this idea. the more you think about it the more it sounds like fantasy.

I think it's pretty racist

I think it's pretty racist these black students were not arrested for kidnapping and assisting white people on campus because white wanted to teach and learn.

Lib logic in action.

Ali,

Ali,

All forms of discrimination exist because various people make money from them and use them to gain power and influence over the mob. It's just manipulation. Very few people actually want a discrimination-free environment.

The USA still discriminates

The USA still discriminates against native Americans. The way their land is held is by the same way they​ would for a child or someone who is physically or mentally unable to care for themselves.

Indigenous peoples the world over did not have a concept of private property the way modern democracies use the word so moot point..

Multigenerational quilt is a

Multigenerational quilt is a hard issue. I get the impulse to demand reparations, but on the other hand the people who demand reparations are not the parties thay were injured, and the ones that would have to pay the reparations are not the ones that did the injustice. It also assumes that nations exist. But if you read Anderson's and Gellner's texts on how nations are socially constructed, the whole thought of a nation falls in it's face. Not to mention that the nation that supposedly now exists is not the nation that existed in the past. Why should for example, people of the descent who came to America in the 20th century pay for crimes even their ancestors didn't do. And what to do with people who have native american and european forefathers? And what about the comanch, who enslaved other native americans? Should people of comanche descent get less than some other people?

What I would say is fair, is to agree that the actions of european colonists were in part deplorable, but I would not pay reparations.

The native American tribes fought between themselves for hunting rights before the Europeans made their way to America
