Maybe, but I doubt it will ever convince anybody who doesn't already
think reparations are silly. Therefore, not memetically effective.
The essay was racist, by the way, because it insinuated that African
Americans steal bicycles, where in fact everybody knows it's the Irish
who steal bicycles. African Americans specialize in stereo equipment.
Russians specialize in software piracy and trolling mailing
lists. This Reed guy should have gotten his facts straight before
going off on his rant.
Finally, as far as accusations of racism go, you're not the one who
should be worried. The ones who should be worried are the legitimate
victims of discrimination, because every time somebody cries wolf,
it dilutes the credibility of valid accusations. Squandering the
heavy memetic firepower over the slightest provokation is a major
weakness of the Left Wing, as is tarring all their adversaries with
the same brush.
