calm[Music]you support reparations for black peoplewell listen again we had over 200 yearsof slavery we had Jim Crow for almost acenturywe had legalized discriminationsegregation and now we have itdelete segregation and discriminationthat is not legal but still exists andas a barrier to progress we havedisparities around housing we havedisparities around education we havedisparities around income and we have torecognize that everybody did not startout on an equal footing in this countryand in particular black people have not[Music]and so we have got to recognize that anddo something about that and give folks alift up that's why for example I'mproposing the lift act give people whoare making $100,000 or less as a familya tax credit which will benefit anuplift 60% of black families who are inpoverty so by default it affects blackfamilies but there's not a particularpolicy for African Americans that youexplore but know if you look at the thereality of who will benefit from certainpolicies when you take into account thatthey're not starting at the same placeand they're not standing they're notstarting on equal footing it willdirectly benefit black children byfamilies black homeowners because thedisparities are so significant so if wefocus on the specific issues that haveresulted in the greatest disparities andwe understand that that's part of whywe're doing it listen the reality alsois this any policy that will benefitblack people will benefit all societylet's be clear about that let's reallybe clear about that so I'm not gonna sithere and say I'm gonna do somethingthat's only gonna benefit black peopleno because whatever benefits that blackfamily will benefit that community andsociety as a whole in the country rightyour poll numbers with african-americanswere quite low and you also don'tsupport reparations for slavedescendants rather why do you think yourpoll numbers are low and why don't yousupport reparations I think what we havegot to do is pay attention to distressedcommunities black communities Latinocommunities and white communities allover this country and as president Ipledged to do that reparations forslavery what does that mean exactlymoney well I think that right now ourjob is to address the crises facing theAmerican people in our communities and Ithink there are better ways to do thatother than just writing out of churchwell Georgetown sociology professorMichael Eric Dyson has a solution towhite privilege he says white Americansought to create individual reparationsaccounts to compensate black Americansfor centuries of oppressionthat's what I think joins us now toexplain how that would work in why richdia good to see you Michael how wouldthis work and why well yeah well it's inthe context let me just briefly say it'sin the context of a much broaderdiscussion about white privilege whiteinnocence white American identity andit's much more complicated than that andI go at african-american culturescontradictions as well and then in theend when I'm making suggestions aboutwhat can be done many white peopleapproach me and ask me what can I do notin terms of the broad socialtransformation out there in the world weall believe in that or argue about itredistribution of resources or not butwhen people ask me what can i as anindividual do one of the things Isuggested besides being educatedbesides participating with other AfricanAmerican and Latino and other brothersand sisters in social movement is to dosomething called an individual repair ofinequality and if they feel inclined todo so this is for people who are soinclined to seek out a way to compensateindividually for what they think is asystemic injustice so I talked aboutbuying his computers being able to takekids to school to tutor them to be ableto do individual things that aretailored to their desires andaspirations right such as becomingprofessorexposing them to things they wouldn'tordinarily see so in other words it's akind of ethic of compassion join to asense of conscience that motivates themto do what they're motivated to do wellI support a lot of that I mean I believein charity what I don't believe in iscollective guilt and that's why I'mconfusedby the phrase white privilege well whiteprivilege doesn't suggest guilt itsuggests responsibility andaccountability the same accountabilityof America talks to about people pullingup themselves by their bootstraps andaddressing their their their theirsituations their communities as beingresponsible for doing what they're doingI don't I don't believe in collectiveguilt but I do believe in collectiveresponsibility responsibility and guiltare synonyms in this case and let's bespecific so privilege I'm privileged andI wouldn't deny that I'm white because Ihave a good-paying job but yourprivilege do of course so we live neareach other in nice neighborhood you'rerich you went to an Ivy League schoollike me and so you're a way moreprivileged than most white Americanswell why would they what is not indebate well first of all privilege iscontingent upon the context in which isdefined so individual cases could couldhave an imbalance that people of colorcould be way more privileged as youtalked about then the average say whiteperson but remember during Jim CrowJackie Robinson was more privileged thanmost white people in terms of having theability to make a good living on a jobbut he was still denied access to awater fountain his kids still couldn'tgo to the same school so I'm saying toyou that your argument then seems to berather vulnerable to rebuff because itdoesn't mean economic accumulation canprevent you from experiencing what areessentially racial inequalities I thinkamount of money you have doesn't do thatyeah and in 1955 I think that was muchtruer than it is well even now when wetalk about the disparities in terms ofpeople's achievement they say was doneby diba pager at a Princeton Universitythat said a black person with a collegeeducation had less of a chance to get ajob than a white person who had gone toprison so even now I'm not talking about50 years ago I'm talking about this isgoing on right now the disparities arevery real right so if I live in EasternKentucky and I am unemployedwhy am i more privileged than you andwhy am I in any way as you put itresponsible foror problems of people I've never met onthe other side of the country look Imean we know that larger forces providepeople opportunities or disadvantageswhen you come many people say let meeven stretch it even furthersome people say look I came to thiscountry 20 years ago I came to thiscountry 30 years ago I didn't I wasn'tadvantaged directly by the system ofenslavement that prevailed in Americabut if you come to this country as animmigrant and you're a white immigrantand you inherit certain privilegesassociated with people who are alreadyherethat means that that privilege is youregardless of the fact that youindirectly benefited from it and you didnot directly contribute to inequalitythe Constitution was written a long timeago so was the Declaration ofIndependence but those ancient documentscontinue to inform people's lives andshape their aspiration so let me flip itaround let me just also note there's alot of hostility in what you're sayingand I'm sure you'll say there isn't butobviously there is no no I think it'spretty clear this is everything this isrecognition of a situational pushback onwhy is usually that called out clearlyhostile but leaving that aside I lookaround for a second if I'm an Africanimmigrant who comes here I'm resettledfrom Somalia at public expense my highpublic expense right am I do thesereparations too I think that the peoplewho have benefited from systemicinequity in this country have beenoverwhelmingly white brothers andsisters and what I'm talking about is adirect relationship to a notable and adocumental and an empirically verifiablesystem of inequality there's no there'snothing that's very obscure about thatand I'm saying to you that people ofcolor who are here now who haveinherited that legacy as a result oftheir black skin and their relationshipto black culture have to be acknowledgedby book my book is not simply aboutreparations you read I know I know thatone I know that it's not much about itis almost out it's about white refusalto acknowledge that no majority whitecountry brings in a black African at hisown expense hmm they still owe himreparations for slaveryno I'm talking about the people who arehere that's that's an isolated event I'mtalking about the massive the majorityof African American people who are herewho are part and parcel of what thiscountry has been and it were built it inits institutions to become what it isnowyouyouI am very thankful to see that many ofyou took a line of what I stated in mylast video and immediately began toresearch further along lots of you havehit my inbox and reference to what Ishared about the differences betweenimmigrants and immigrants for exampleand I am very very pleased with those ofyou who knows that a 3.5 second Googlesearch is not real research but would beconsidered that way by some only if thatindividual is limited with expandingtheir leads and of course resourceconservatives so I'll share moreinformation about it now the 1828Webster's English dictionary states thatthe noun immigrant spelt with the letterE is quote one who removes hishabitation or quits one country orregion to settle in another while thenoun immigrant spelled with an i isquote a person that removes into acountry for the purpose of permanentresidents now subscribing to thestandard definition of these words makesyou conclude that they both mean thesame but most of you who are cognizantof the spells of the English languagewould know better some of you wouldnotice that the definition of emigratewith the letter E would determine thatit means exit and the definition of theword emigrate spelt with the letter i'will determine that it means to come into do to both Latin origins of each wordbut here's the problem with them acountry is not a continenta continent as not a country state norregion of a territory you can recallthat in the first video I shared thatthe definition of the word immigrantsbut with the letter e means people whomoves from one region of a country tolive in another region of that samecountry which derives from his etymologyto remove from one state to anotherstate or territory this is not hardregion be it the states of the countrycalled North America but is it NorthAmerica a continent or is it really butthat's for a different time America isbeing considered as both by lots ofpeople right now taking the advice ofstrangers without managing to actuallylook it up for themselves even theetymology of the word emigrate speltwith the letter i' and forms you that itmeans to quote pass into a place as anew inhabitant or resident listenclosely to move to a country where oneis not a native for the purposes ofsettling permanently there now does thatsound peaceful to you all or somethingit says for the purpose of settlingpermanently there as a resident and nota native of that landmass this is whythe word we move was used in Webster'sdefinition because there were Wars goingon here and if you become a prisonerthen things get taken away from youconfiscated prisoner of war you may haveheard me mention this multiple timesalready but I know some of you newlyincoming viewers might not know it yetand that's fine this is the reason why Ishare even more detailed informationwhen I feel as though you may havearound the research and it just yet sowith all things considered the drivingprinciples of the ad OS agenda revealsit as yes another distraction adistraction from the actual proof ofwhether you are an American descendantor an African descendant of slavery orneither slavery did not happen the waywe were all told to while compulsivelyeducational institutions that derivedirectly from the Reconstruction era ofthe 1900s there were political andcommercial groups businesses and bankswho were responsible for grantingpermission to anthropologists and thepower of eugenics to create cultivateand influence the reconstructed historythey gave to you the narrative that youare accustomed to now stems fromemployees of those who wrote themanuscripts you draw from slavery usedin its proper context is simply laborservitude this is why most people wouldcommonly believe today that slavery wasabolished in 1865 when it was merelyupgraded and transitioned from a bondagestandpoint to an industrialized versionthat runs parallel along the lines ofcapitalism in other words they gave youforced schooling in order toindoctrinate you with whatever it isthey want you to know in order to makeyou think slavery was one way when inreality slavery is still ongoing theexact same today as if it was in thepast employment there were no chains andshackles then and there are no chainsand shackles now at least not visiblybecause some of you fail to realize thatthe chains and shackles were placed uponyour mindsetswhat is the Emancipation Proclamationmany of my viewers will recall it as thetime when President Abraham Lincolnfreed all of the slaves of North Americamultiple history professors and scholarswould agree with you even some websiteswould state that the EmancipationProclamation or Proclamation 95 changedthe federal legal status of more than3.5 million enslaved African Americansin the designated areas of the southfrom slave to free however when youactually read an original copy ofproclamation 95 you will not find anylegislation throughout the context ofthe document where it clearly statesthat it was created in order to freeblacks coloredsor African Americans from slaveryproclamation 95 was a call to endexisting public upheavals and riots thatwere taking place during that timeperiod over a labor dispute complaintswere arising from the laborers whoworked long periods of hours for littleto nothing nowadays or for beingpromised something for their labor butthe other party didn't hold up to theirend of the bargain graduallytransforming the laborers into prisonersof war realizing that they were beingused in order to create and establishthe 13 colonies in fact the funds whichwere needed in order to maintain andregulate the 13 colonies were not beinggenerated so this forced 11 of thesouthern states to back out of a badbusiness deal succeeding themselves fromthe Union then a new Union was createdcalled the Confederate States of Americahowever in order to keep the membershipof these Confederacy's they imposedlimitations upon the resigning party'srights just like any Union would todaythis was all done through a proclamationto blockade southern stateit's from trading along the waterwaysand by doing this the United Statesgovernment was able to stop commerce andshipments of products such as rice corngreen and tobacco just to name a fewfrom leaving the southern regions of theUnited States when I mentioned a badbusiness deal earlier this is what I wasreferring to and so now you know whatthe Civil War was truly about it was thesilver dispute amongst employees thatwere tired of being treated unfairlywithin their place of employment it wasall about civil rights inequality in theworkplacefights over improper land grants tariffsand trade disputes among setlists andsquatters all gave way to a secession ofConfederate states and a broken Union inits simplest form this was merely alabor dispute at the okeechobee laborcamp while families were preparing tomove north there was still some work inthe bean fields children as usual wereleft to fend for themselves Jerome howold do you know nine you go to schoolyes where do you go to school Jeromewhat is your sister's name that's Loisand what are your other sisters namesKathyCatherine and Beulah

firststarted working in the fields 8 you'vebeen working 21 years in the fields Ezraanything do you ever think you'll beable to get out of this kind of workNothe Civil War was a labor dispute thatwas inevitably tied to American Indianlands and for this reason a scheme wasdevised where the people on the bottomwill be able to create a flip-flop thatresulted in their eventual rise to thetop more about this from our documentaryseries cardafrican-americans are big threat toAmerican society but I stated that tosay this our people were always homeeven when the Industrial Revolutionbegan our ancestors were the onesprospering we owned the lands lakesrivers businesses and debates and mostimportantly we were well aware of howand where to get the resources needed tosustain the continued growth of oursuccess and the success of Turtle Islandaka North America so how does animmigrant remove an indigenous personand replace themselves as a permanentresident do you realize that there wasan agreement made between our people waybefore the people without color got herethe black people agreed that they wouldthey would sacrifice and do the slaverything for us or we would have beencompletely wiped out we owe them such adebtdon't be caught up in American racismthey don't want us to unite and betogether because they're afraid of thatwe'll treat them the way they treated uswe're human beings we could never bethat that thoughtless we don't have toworry about that because for anointingslook they're gonna self-destruct a lotof them is spinning out of control we'renot even gonna have to do anything wemight have to put a few of them out oftheir misery but according to awell-known anthropologist by the name ofMargaret Mead you don't come into aplace with an attitude of entitlementbecause people generally enjoy when youlearn their language in their culture aslong as you come into a place ready tolearn and join their society it's okayit's very flattering for all people whensomeone wants to be taught and alsoMargaret Mead stated quote you have todo something pretty terrible to peoplebefore they come to regard you as aspine rather than an interested explorerand that is exactly what they did whenthey adopted our ancestors constitutionsand created Confederacy's that reflectedour ancestors form of government theArticles of Confederation and perpetualUnion was a set of laws which was usedto form the first US government in theyear 1777 this was based on theinformation learned by the foreignersand through Indian relations each Indiantribe had its own Confederacy and itsown Constitution and they had acommander which was the chief this formof government allowed for the individualsovereignty of each tribe to take placeand not to be imposed upon it alsoallowed for trade relations outside ofthe tribe to take place amongst thosewho are the heads or Chiefs of the tribeor clan and this is the idea that thethirteen colonies took for themselvesthey created the Articles ofConfederationgeneration not as colonies but asConfederacy's there was a Confederacyfor each state and this is why there isalso a constitution for each state thisis also why when they separated from theUnion that they called themselves theConfederate States of America thecolonies of the United States created aconfederacy in a union which had theduty to quote enter into a firm Leagueof friendship with each other for theircommon defense the security of theirliberties and their mutual and generalwelfare binding themselves to assisteach other against all force offered toor attacks made upon them or any of themon account of religion sovereignty tradeor any other pretense whatsoever andthey used a formal setting known asCongress to resolve their disputesCongress is defined as a formal assemblyof two or more representativesambassadors or nations that comestogether to discuss problems soundfamiliar the House of RepresentativesCongress a commander-in-chief andbecause these foreign Confederacy's wereso few in numbers alongside the largeamount of indian confederacies theydecided to form a union which is shortfor trade union or labor union thatensures they would always be togetherfor common purpose in most cases theAmerican Indian clans or tribesallegedly agreed to sign treaties withforeigners a rather a foreign governmentto ensure peaceful cooperation betweenthemselves dating back to the latterpart of the 1770s this is also around atime when our own people were pittedagainst each other for the purposes ofdisloyalty and betrayal andcolonization of our people through papergenocide of course this was all politicsso the start of the civil war was thevery first government shutdown becauseit was declared a state of emergencywhereas the commander-in-chief takesupreme authority and decides what couldpossibly settle the dispute and geteveryone working together again all ofthis leads back to the EmancipationProclamation and according to theoriginal documents which is listed in anexhibit for the National Archives itreads that on the first day of Januaryin the year of our Lord 1863 all personsheld as slaves within any state ordesignated part of the state the peoplewhere of shall then be in rebellionagainst the United States shall be thenthenceforward and forever free it alsostates that and I hereby enjoin upon thepeople so declared to be free to abstainfrom all violence unless in necessaryself-defense and I recommend to themthat in all cases when allowed theylabor faithfully for reasonable wageswhich truly lets you know that slaveryas we were all taught in school isroyally incorrect because you can't leta slave know what slavery was all aboutthen that person were realizedhe or she may still be a slave now I'mjust here to make you think[Music]you
