#1 If you're curious about where this is all headed:

Welcome to the official Truth and Reconciliation Commission Website

The South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was set up by the Government of National Unity to help deal with what happened under apartheid. The conflict during this period resulted in violence and human rights abuses from all sides. No section of society escaped these abuses. The TRC was based on the Promotion of National Unity and Reconciliation Act, No 34 of 1995 (pdf)

"... a commission is a necessary exercise to enable South Africans to come to terms with their past on a morally accepted basis and to advance the cause of reconciliation."

Translation: A necessary exercise until all of your stuff becomes our stuff.

Mr Dullah Omar, former Minister of Justice
The TRC effected its mandate through 3 committees: the Amnesty Committee, Reparation and Rehabilitation (R&R) Committee and Human Rights Violations (HRV) Committee....more

#2 "To save what is dear to us from being trampled by the ravager, we must sometimes descend to moral depths we cannot expect from normal men."
- Ancient kshatriya proverb

There is no civil way to defend yourself from this. The Jim Crowe laws were based on the premise that the same access to employment, education and franchise as applicable to Americans, must not be shared by expatriated African slaves and their offspring. History itself teaches us that any oppressed class, if given the opportunity will retaliate with maximum ferocity and seek to displace/slaughter/enslave the other. It has not evolved to understand and value the centuries of civilization that have gone by under the administration and efforts of the original civilizing class. Therefore it shall also seek to destroy every edifice and every symbol of the original.

It is very simple really. Survival. If the whites are to survive, they've got to start playing dirty. It doesn't matter who enslaved whom, or what was done to their forefathers. All that matters is, your children are being obliged to lay their heads down at guillotines for it.

If Americans truly value their future, they will fight for it. With things like a white antifa(do call it something else), million-strong protests, educating the fringe white communities so they don't end up embarrassments always, coordinating a nationwide campaign against black power, guerilla activities against gangs and enforcers, - sacrifices are inescapable, but once it is in motion, caucasian peoples the world over would join it. Also, everybody else who has witnessed the reality of the inherently regressive African race.

Anything less, and we are witnessing the first lazy whorls of a downward spiral that will lead to the ravaging of the greatest nation on earth.

#3 "Restoring justice by eradicating white supremacy?"

More hogwash or ontological goo from the left. Why should we accept that this statement is true? Assuming there is some (dubious) truth; what should it be replaced with: egalitarianism, black supremacy or Islamicist supremacy? That has not worked out well for the world.

How are things in South Africa these days? They traded white apartheid for black apartheid.

#5 History itself teaches us that any oppressed class, if given the opportunity will retaliate with maximum ferocity and seek to displace/slaughter/enslave the other.

That is the general history, yes. But as a Jew I come from a class oppressed in both Christendom and the Ummah, yet we are not known for displacing/slaughtering/enslaving our former oppressors after being granted full citizenship. Likewise, no rumour of such behaviour has reached the ken of man regarding those who separated from the African-American community over the past half dozen or so generations to pass as white.

In fact, the examples of both revolutionary France and — shortly thereafter —Haiti show that the behaviour is not racial but cultural. That the white underclass of Britain, whose degradation has been so thoroughly documented by Theodore Dalrymple, has not equally brutally overthrown its masters is another nail in the coffin of the inevitability of this particular teaching of History.

This demand for reparations is the product of a small group within the Democratic party, and is in fact nothing more than perennial political grandstanding. Even if a bill on the subject were to pass in the House, where it has been pending for decades under presidents Democratic as well as Republican, it would not pass in the Republican Senate, and hasn’t a hope in hell of being signed by President Trump.

In other words, the defence against this kabuki will be entirely civil.

#6 The REAL TRUTH about reparations is that whites deserve more than the blacks. Slavery and Jim Crow were devised to keep poor Southern Whites in line.

There is a reason the South consistently lagged behind the North in economic development. The South was the last region in the US to eliminate diseases like anthrax. It was the last region to have rural electricity and indoor plumbing.

LBJ worked long and hard to dismantle Jim Crow - not because it hurt Blacks but because it hurt Southern Whites worse.
