He continues;

Quote
Systemic racism, centuries of slavery and discrimination affected blacks

This is in reference to the state of poverty and decay in the US black community. The argument is that if it were not for centuries of slavery and segregation, and systemic racism that continues today, blacks would be a more successful demographics and disparities like the racial wealth gap between white and black would've been nonexistent.

If this is true, then why is it that the blacks are vastly over-represented & thus more successful than whites in professional sports like basketball and American football? In a racist country that is only 13% black, over 70% of the players in major sport leagues are black. How is this possible?

Why did centuries of slavery and oppression not prevent blacks from outperforming whites in professional sports where they can earn millions of dollars annually?

Edip further explains;

Quote
Generational transfer of wealth aided whites(while earlier generations of blacks were denied access to wealth to pass to their descendants).

Another wrong claim. It is based on two faulty premises; that family wealth will continue to pass down several generations, and that under more favorable circumstance, grandparents of all of today's blacks would've amassed enough wealth to pass down.

Just because you die very wealthy, doesn't mean your grand children will inherit your wealth. Family wealth may be lost over a single generation if not properly managed.

Edip now suggest federal policy to compensate blacks;

Quote
Reparations for African Americans needed

This keeps getting worse. Reparation at best is charity, at worst is scam. Descendants of non-slave holders shouldn't pay a dime to free descendants of emancipated slaves. There were slaves in many other parts of the world(like Edip's Turkey and Saudi Arabia) whose descendants never even lived to demand reparation. 

Reparation is paid for loss of properties and lives by the offenders. You don't get reparation because your ancestors were slaves or were denied certain privileges, for which you now want to blame for your shortcomings.
