With just days to go before Barack Hussein Obama leaves office, race-baiters in Congress are working overtime to push through their ridiculous agendas before Donald Trump takes office.
According to the Conservative Tribune, Democrats in the Congressional Black Caucus have renewed their efforts to enact slave reparations in this country, forcing white Americans to pay blacks for something that was abolished over 150 years ago.
The Washington Examiner reported that Michigan Rep. John Conyers and his fellow CBC members have officially “re-introduced legislation that would set up a commission to consider whether reparations should be paid to black Americans for slavery.”
Conyers has spent the last twenty years presenting the bill, which would also force the government to issue a formal apology for the “racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans.”
A few months ago, Conyers issued the following statement defending his bill:
“Since I first introduced H.R. 40 in 1989, we have made substantial progress in elevating this issue in the national consciousness. As recent poll numbers indicate, through legislation, state and local resolutions, and litigation, we are moving closer to a full dialogue on the role of slavery in building this country. For me, it’s not surprising that young people are more open minded on the reparations issue, since they have been the beneficiaries of a vastly more inclusive system of education on issues of civil rights and people of color. With the passage of time, I hope that this openness will foster a more robust dialogue on the continuing impact of race, creating space for solutions that may finally close the door to historical issues rooted in intolerance.”
Nobody is going to deny that slavery is a horrible aspect of American history. However, there is absolutely no reason that any American alive today should have to pay for the sins any of our ancestors may have committed 150 years ago.
