    Congressional Hearing On Slavery Reparations Set For Wednesday

    For the first time in a decade Congress will hold a hearing Wednesday on the subject of reparations for the descendants of slaves in the United States, a topic that has gained traction in the run-up to the 2020 elections.The hearing is set for June 19, also known as "Juneteenth," the day when in 1865 former enslaved people in Texas first learned that they had been emancipated two years earlier.
    The House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties is holding the hearing on H.R. 40, which calls for a commission to "study and develop reparation proposals for African-Americans," including a formal apology by the U.S. government "for the perpetration of gross human rights violations and crimes against humanity on African slaves and their descendants."

    Going down this road is going to be a huge mistake.

    More reparations are needed? We already have special treatment for blacks with college entrances. Special treatment for blacks with the definition of hate crimes.

    You know, if blacks were more successful, reparations wouldn't be needed.
    Who's fault is that? Oh no, can't be blacks' fault...Blacks do have ultra-lousy leaders. Blacks rarely go to college, for example. Blacks have too much fat in their diet, for example.

    I can't rightly think of any policy that could possibly do more to destroy (already tenuous) black-white race relations in America.

    I furthermore refuse to believe that any reasonable person who considers the implementation hazards, who considers the ethical implications, and who long considers the enmity that reparations will breed--regardless of race--can conclude that this is a good idea.

    Great idea! Let's reopen some old wounds and create more racial division in the country!

    The Democrats are flaming morons.

    They sure are.

    BTW, a "funny" thing happened at said hearing: "Burgess Owens Says Democrats Should Pay Reparations"
    "At a House Judiciary Subcommittee hearing today focused on Reparations, Burgess Owens called out the Democrats and the Democratic party for years of historic injustices against the black community."


    6-minute video, but the first 2 minutes are sufficient ...

    There have never been any reparations for black Americans. What a silly assertion.

    And you should look into properly defining what a 'hate crime' actually is.

    Happy Juneteenth, btw.

    Yep, I could get on board with that. If reparations are to be paid let the party of slavery, KKK, Jim Crow and every vote against equal rights pay the tab. It's their tab to pay in the first place.

    Here is comes, Get ready, Some idiot claiming the Dems and Repubs switched parties in 3......2........1........
