    It seems rather ironic

    It seems rather ironic that democrat say that DACA children shouldn't have to pay for the crimes of their parents.

    Yet these same democrats claim that white people of today should be held responsible for the actions of some one and a half centuries ago!!!

    Any democrat care to explain that????

    Jim crow didn't happen one and a half centuries ago. It happened for the one and a half centuries since.

    Any actual 'logical ones' out there that can provide context of a person saying DACA children are not responsible for their parent's crime and that same person saying white people are responsible for unnamed actions of the past?

    And no white person of today is responsible for what happened 155 years ago and before. It would seem democrats of today are still mad that Lincoln a Republican freed the slaves. Shortly there after democrats invented the KKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It is inaccurate to say all Democrats support reparations for slavery. Repesentative Sheila Jackson Lee has proposed a bill to "study" the issue and many candidates support that, but no one is suggesting a plan for reparations. It would be hard to determine who might qualify for a cash payout. People would have to show their ancestry dates back to the slave trade. That alone would be very tough to demonstrate. It's a non-starter for that reason. It's clear people of color are persistently economically worse off than so-called white people. The reasons are complex, but no doubt part of it is discrimination.

    The whole concept of Reparations is punishing today's Americans for what Democrats did 150 yrs ago.

    And that's exactly what it's meant to do...
    It's a cheap political pandering gimmick.
