Comments: Chicago Alderman Tillman continues to attack supposed slave profits on modern firms

Wow, and I thought we had strange politicians here in California. Going after these corporations with deep pockets for reparations is about as valid as the descendant of a slave holder finding out that an NBA superstar's descendants ran away from his great great great great grandpa and wanting a cut of his 80 million dollar contract for lost income.

I don't know how this plays among her constituents, but to us folks on the outside looking in, I would say that a good dose of reality would do that City Council district good
Great blog, I will return.

Since I have a degree from Brown University, I knew that a lot of rich families in New England controlled the banking 200 years ago. Part of the Brown family became rich from lending meoney. By the way, Harvard and Yale made more money then Brown University. Harvard has 20 times money than Brown University. All stopped because of the Civil War which ended in 1865. Ruth Simmons is the President of Brown, a black
female with PhD from Harvard in French Literature. Should she donate half her salary to
poor and intelligent blacks who want an Ivy degree? Last year one person gave the school 120 million dollars, so her job is safe. She answers the phone personally when he calls.
