Forget the Mule, $48 Billion Sounds much Nicer!

Black Run America (BRA) is on the precipice of finally introducing a line of credit for Black people without a limit.
$48 Billion to stimulate inner-city spending!

After successfully passing legislation awarding more than $1 billion to imaginary Black farmers, those elected to represent their constituents are mulling over passing a bill to award a stunning $48 billion to be redistributed in inner cities:

Rep. Cleaver has proposed a $48 billion earmark.

When absurdity gives way to hilarity, you must be talking about politics. 

In the midst of a colossal global concern for the economic stability of our great nation, Emanuel Cleaver, Missouri's 5th Congressional District representative, has one small earmark on his wish list that deserves some attention. 

Cleaver has listed a new earmark -- one of several -- and he promises to "fight for every one." But this is a whopping $48 billion package that must go down as the grandaddy of all earmarks. 

Proposed by a gentleman named Lamar Mickens, president of the not-for-profit Quality Day Campus, the $48 billion earmark would funnel money into the inner cities to give money to the poor and thereby produce a much larger consumer class to buy the goods and services produced in this country. 

Just call this redistribution on steroids. 
Cleaver's office says this of the proposal:
"The Epicenter is a proposed estimated $48 billion (Phase One) mass scale urban reclamation project for combating, reducing, reversing and/or eliminating poverty within under served communities by utilizing mass scale economic redevelopment to bring about stability and self reliance."
OK. So the idea is short of specifics.
Currently Mickens operates this massive proposal out of his home but with Cleaver's help, this earmark could put him on the road to success.

Cleaver provides a link to a Mickens "manifesto" where a lengthy agenda is outlined -- but again with no specifics other than the rich should provide money to the poor so that the poor will have more money to spend.
This earmark would go to help Black people, that economically disadvantaged group who suffer from income inequality and high rates of unemployment; Reparations by any other name.

It has been calculated that cumulative Black buying power in the United States is around $913 billion, meaning that the $48 billion earmark would represent 5 percent of Black peoples combined monetary clout.

We at SBPDL find the purported estimate of Black buying power specious and will report more on that at a later date.

With Foot Locker on the verge of going out of business, the increased buying power of inner-city dwelling Black people could save the struggling store. How many other industries would benefit from this redistribution of wealth? One Dave Chappelle famously (or infamously) parodied what would happen if Black people ever received reparations:
[breaking news report following the distribution of slavery reparations]
News Reporter: So, what do you plan to spend your money on.
Tron: [In fake, quivering voice] I'm going to re-invest it in the community.
News Reporter: Well, that's...
[cut off]
Tron: Psyche. I'm gonna spend it before y'all honkies change yo minds.
In that episode, we also see:
Tron becomes the world’s richest man, along with stock rising in fried chicken and KFC merging with Fubu. Note - this is the first time we hear Donnell Rawlings yell, "I'M RICH BIATCH!"
That Mr. Cleaver’s $48 billion earmark hasn’t been laughed out of the halls of Congress yet illustrates the power of BRA. One can only wonder at the potential lengths of the lines that will develop if the bill passes. Will we see a repeat of the fiasco in Atlanta, when 30,000 Black people lined up to get on a waiting list for Section-8 housing?

Perhaps a rumor could be started in major city that the bill has already passed, as when 50,000 Black people lined up in Detroit for stimulus checks that were non-existent.

At a time when the money is running out, Congress can be looked upon to dramatically boost the buying power of Black people. Remember, in entitlement America the head of a household of four making minimum wage has more disposable income than a family making $60,000 a year.

With single Black mothers having a median net worth of just $5 (consider that 72 percent of Black babies are now born out-of-wedlock) one can only imagine how this $48 billion could significantly improve the state of inner-cities. After all, quadrillions have been spent trying to improve the inner-city schools that have turned out the intellectual titans who comprise the populations of these major cities.

Basically, it is time for the government to issue the 36 million Black people (12 percent of the US population) a Black card. No need for food stamps anymore, as this card will serve as a credit card (with no limit). Black students who get free lunches at school can use their card freely to engorge themselves more than they already do.

Black Friday would be everyday, thanks to the advent Black card. The stigma of the welfare queen would be gone forever. Child support could be paid.

One can only marvel at the direction the United States is heading.

If you say $48 billion dollars, you know it's going to be 2-3 times that amount. The government never comes in at or under budget. A dramatic increase in the amount of currency in fluctuation could lead to inflation.

And the truth is, what happens when the money runs out? You've given these people a brief spending spree, but they won't have emerged from it with any marketable or valuable skills. They won't have produced anything on their own of worth or value that would continue to nourish their community. You *HAVE* to have something people want to invest in. You can't say 'Invest in us' without offering bankers and institutions something in return.

Cleaver's suggestion is basically to hand 48 billion dollars to people who don't have 48 dollars to their name. I can't tell you the amount of black employees I have managed who refuse to open checking accounts, and instead prefer to lose 10% of their check to the local liquor store willing to cash it for them. I've given rides home to employees who want me to drive them to the gas station/liquor store first to cash their check (I quit doing that a few years ago). So, with to no interest in saving their own money...with no skills or motivation to manage their own money beyond tomorrow, why is there any solid reason to believe that Cleaver's $48 billion dollar cash grab is going to help these people?

It's yet another wasteful government program initiated by Democrats in love with the power and idea of a big government. A government where citizens surrender their will to the politicians in exchange for free "stuff".

How many hundreds of billions were spent since Johnson's great society war on poverty? Where did that get us? Sorry folks but expecting blacks to live like whites and create like societies and neighborhoods is pure BS. They had their chance to do their little experiment. Now we know that money will go down a rat hole...And THEN what? Government has gone full-time into the business of taking from whites and giving to non-whites. Whites need to start playing the race game openly NOW. What's in it for white people should be the only question asked any more.

SHUT UP ALL READY! BLACKY THIS, BLACKEY THAT, WHINE, WHINE, WHINE!!! That's all you people are good for, whinning about a race of people, but not making a difference yourself. I disagree with your views, but I would have some respect if you didn't just whine and actually do something with your pitiful lives.

Then again, that's all your kind does. Complain, insult, and criticize those that threaten you. America is a selfish country with selfish people. Your kind has seen to that. My case is closed. Have fun being worthless complainers for the rest of your pathetic life. I know you will.

Phony politicians have "mulled" over a lot of things that have never come to be and this will be one of those things.

Where is the "inner city" and does every black person in America live there?

Wouldn't any aid to the "inner city" help the overall city since the inner city is a part of the city in question? Especially since no where in this suggests any of this imaginary money will be used to directly cut checks to black people.

Think of some new material, you're painfully unoriginal, and boring as hell.

Give the money to elderly folks barely able to feed themselves, retarded / blind / truly disabled ( not fat or fake BS cases ), give a lot to disabled veterans.

Don't give the money to Darnell and Lakesha so they can buy more booze, shrimps, steaks, anything expensive and be broke in a few days again.

For $48,000,000,000 we can send them all back to Africa.

"Wouldn't any aid to the "inner city" help the overall city since the inner city is a part of the city in question"

Simple answer is no. Want some examples?

1. Blacks in my city have already nearly destroyed the "new construction" lookalike historic homes that the taxpayer has built for them in the inner city/ghetto. My city hired a builder to tear down the once beautiful historic homes that the poor blacks have destroyed, and in their place, build new homes.

They call it "affordable housing", but to blacks, this means public welfare housing. Blacks have no experience with nice things and do not know how to actually own things or manage a household, and so these cute new houses have blacks on the porches smoking weed and drinking liquor all day, black children running in packs, while the black prostitutes work the neighborhood streets. There is still a black liquor store/check cashing joint where the men loiter, an "Uncle Rally's Variety Store" and an active black church (with some boarded windows) in the neighborhood. The new homes are cute - made with wood siding in pretty neutral colors, high-end wood front doors that match the painted trim, cute mailboxes, picket fences, new sod front yards with pretty landscaping and mulch. They will be completely trashed in a few years. What a waste!

2. We are tired of paying for blacks to exist, paying for blacks to improve, paying for blacks to eat, live, be educated and everything else we pay for. You just don't get this, which proves my point. I believe the best idea is to improve the black ghetto areas and then price things so high that poor blacks leave the area and decent families can move in and actually improve the city. The fewer black ghetto people, the better. The only successful cities have managed their poor black population well. Isn't it sad that the population has to be "managed"? But it has come to this. What to do with the Negro. If we leave the blacks where they are, they will rob, loot and destroy everything. No businesses would dare move into a black ghetto because they will surely be robbed at gunpoint and have graffiti spray painted on the property. This has already happened to the Magic Johnson Starbucks, the Magic Johnson movie theater, and the "Faith and Blessed" ghetto franchise McDonalds project.

3. The problem is not the buildings, the neighborhood, the schools, etc. The problem is the PEOPLE and their unsavory culture. You can polish a turd, but it is still a turd and it still stinks. Underclass ghetto blacks should be moved into high rise public housing projects with very small units that they can manage. Now my city is also tearing down the "projects" and building sparkling new townhouses in the ghetto.

So what if they shoot, rape and kill each other with drugs? We have already tried to fix this massive problem and it does not work. If you choose to live in voluntary slavery (welfare), this is your option, take it or leave it. If you want something better, then stop destroying everything in sight.

Someone, please give more examples, my brain hurts.

Love this comment from the Indianapolis Meadows article:

"The most important thing is allowing that negative image to disappear," Jones said."

Negative image? Blacks want their negative image to just disappear? WTF? Once the old criminal/ghetto black residents move into the new town homes, the problem will get even worse.

Again, a perfect example of a black attempting to out-intellectualize his opponents. What a clever, game-stopper of a question, huh?

Except, everyone, including him, knows exactly what is being discussed.

If blacks had any pride at all (not the made up kind the TV keeps ramming down our throats), they would flat out reject ANYTHING from us racist Whites, and this horrific country, and show us just how wonderful they really are!

blacks really, and truly, are pathetic, and useless to anyone who is civilized.

The "Ghetto" or inner-city is not only a place, it is the core of each and every black person in America. Even the blacks who make it past poverty have a soft spot in their hearts for the black ghetto. They always go back to the black ghetto for Thanksgiving and Christmas soul-food dinners at Grandmama's house. The black middle class will always support programs and entitlements for the black ghetto because they are all affectionately tied to it. It is at the core of black collective thinking. I have an old black neighbor and she is always singing some song about "in the ghetto", and here are some lyrics by Busta Rhymes, a hero of black culture:
