Reparations And The Manifest Density of Ta-Nehisi Coates
Print Friendly and PDF

Teh-Genius Coates is back in the news due to his Congressional testimony on reparations for blacks because the white race plunders blacks via the sure-fire money making plan of:

  1. Make African-Americans a net burden on society
  2. ?
  3. Profit!

From my new column in Taki’s Magazine:

Manifesto Destiny
by Steve Sailer

June 19, 2019

This Land Is Our Land: An Immigrant’s Manifesto by Calcutta-born NYU journalism professor Suketu Mehta takes pro-immigration polemics to their logical conclusion: “Immigration as reparations.”

“I claim the right to the United States, for myself and my children and my uncles and cousins, by manifest destiny…. It’s our country now.” …

After all, Mehta is consciously drafting behind Ta-Nehisi Coates’ call for reparations for African-Americans when he demands open borders as reparations for racist Americans’ crimes against foreigners who haven’t gotten here yet:

Ta-Nehisi Coates has written about what America owes its black citizens…. Globally, too, a giant bill is due…. They’re asking for fairness: for the borders of the rich to be opened to goods and people…

Granted, TNC isn’t the most acute thinker. But despite Coates’ manifest density, even TNC might eventually start to wonder if the white man’s reparation pie is really big enough to accommodate not just American blacks but also, potentially, every nonwhite grifter on the planet.
