Reparations are not a radical idea; they’re considered a basic tenet of social and political policy throughout the world. Why should America not pay reparations to the descendants of slaves who were brought to America against their will, used as slaves to build the Southern economy into a huge economic force, and then freed into a culture of further violence perpetrated against them? It’s not as though all that’s over now; if anything, the problem has grown within the cells and psyches of every generation since. America will continue to waste money on relatively limited fixes, until we buck up and pay this debt in a real way once and for all. Millions are indeed wasted if the billions we owe here are not paid. A Reparations Plan would provide a massive investment in educational and economic opportunities for African Americans— rendered as payment for a long overdue debt. Until that debt is paid, the cycle of violence that began in the 1600s and continues to this day will continue to haunt our psyche and disrupt our social good. It is time for America to atone for our past in both word and deed, and to heal our weary soul.
I felt my existence was tainted, in some subtle but essential way.

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. 
Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.

  • The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky
  • The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus (The book that made me comfortable being an atheist)
  • A Thousand Plateaus by Gilles Delueze and Felix Guattari
  • The Book of Longing by Leonard Cohen (Probably my favorite book of poetry)
  • The Flash of Lightning Behind the Mountain by Charles Bukowski (thumbed through a friend’s copy of this in high school and it’s what led me to actually start writing poetry of my own)
  • I Am a Strange Loop by Douglas Hofstadter
  • Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut (First Vonnegut novel I read)
  • A Thousand Years of Non-Linear History by Manuel De Landa
  • Walden by Henry David Thoreau (Simplicity…)
  • That’s nine and I can’t think of another so that’s it!

And I’m not tagging anyone, but if you want to do this on your own feel free! Also I need to catch up on all my unread books because this list has become pretty stagnant…

She it is, she, that found me
In the morphia honeymoon;
With silk and steel she bound me
In her poisonous milk she drowned me,
Even now her arms surround me.
