Whoops. Someone was using their outside voice...
If the race hustlers keep pushing for reparations, they're going to have a shocked look of surprise on their faces when they get their wish, and get presented with a bill, instead of a check.If you are a white American, over the course of your lifetime the federal government will, on average and on your behalf, transfer $384,109 of your wealth and income to a single black individual.
According to the data derived from the 2014 federal budget, the average annual net tax/benefit broke down as follows:
Over the course of an average 79-year lifespan, a white individual contributes a net $220,805 to the system, whereas over the course of an average 75-year lifespan, a black individual receives a net $751,200. However, since there are 4.6 times more whites than blacks in the USA, the black share has to be divided among the various contributors to sort out a one-to-one comparison.
- White: -$2,795
- Black: +$10,016
So, the net cost to the average White American of the average Black American is $384,109. Married? That's $768,218. Got 2 kids? That's $1,536,436. 4 kids? Now we're talking $2,304,654 lifetime.
Diversity is expensive. Now you understand why you won't have much of an inheritance to leave to your children. Do you really think it's worth it? And then, those natural conservatives to the south, the Hispanics, will surely improve the situation, right? After all, immigration helps the economy! Well, not so much.
In fact, because there are more Hispanics in the USA than Blacks, Hispanics are already a bigger cumulative net drain on the economy, $411,950,000,000 to $389,710,000,000. Needless to say, the ongoing demographic change from a predominantly white society to a less productive, less white one can be expected to have even more serious negative effects on the long-term economic prospects of the United States that it already has.
- Hispanic: +7,298
To quote the original author: "The negative fiscal impact of blacks and hispanics is significant. All of this discussion of a “national debt” and “deficit” is primarily of function of blacks and hispanics. Without them, we would be running budget surpluses today, even when keeping the military the same size."
But to be fair, the above only applies if you're one of the 48% or so who actually pays taxes in the first place, rather than the slight majority who, annually, pay nothing, many of whom get a refund from those who did.
And if you're part of the top 5% that pays more than 60% of the tax burden, you're actually paying a much bigger wad of cash than $300K (which means the average white taxpayer is paying over vastly less than $300K/lifetime - probably closer to $100K, bad enough as that is).
We won't even talk about the cost to the entire society across two generations and counting when affirmative action is factored in, and you populate college admissions, and both public and private entities with hordes of second- and third-rate candidates, because they were hired for their skin color instead of their abilities.
