I just don't get it....

What about the Japanese (internment camps during WWII and property seized), Native Americans (where to even begin????), and Chinese (railroad workers & basically slaves in the old West)???? What about folks of Scottish and Irish descent who's ancestors were trapped in indentured servitude for years? Hey, let's even add the Jewish people in there since they're still facing discrimination! And Muslims because you know how they've been discrimated against since 9/11. And don't forget the folks who came here from India and work in all the 7-11's!!!!!

You can't just single out ONE ethnic/racial group and reward them for something that happened to their ancestors!!!!!

And if they're going to base it on "denied opportunities" or "repression," then what about Appalachian Americans or other people from the South who have been ridiculed/denied opportunites because of their accent and/or culture? Or lets take it another step further, who are now experiencing generational poverty because the past several generations have grown dependant on the government tit??? (See what throwing money at a repressed group results in????)

If this shit starts, it'll never end....
I'm Irish Catholic. we were persecuted in the early and late 1800's especially in the northeast. Show me the MONEY!!!!

Western Ky.
Jesus, what an absolutely stupid statement. Working from memory, but CA itself has an economy in the top 10 in the world.

They are the citizens propping up states like KY with THEIR tax $$$.
Last I checked, our government is printing or digitally creating huge sums of money to cover their spending shortfall. Just exactly how is California sending money to anyone when they don't cover their own bills? They are in the hole now for 24 billion. How do you squeeze blood from a turnip is the old saying I do believe.

If you are interested, here is the debt clock for each state.

Their argument is that crime will go down if they get the money. I heard this when they presented it to the californication state legislature. Talk about BLACKMAIL!!!!!!!
