On Friday, the House Judiciary Committee scheduled a vote for next week on a bill that would give slavery reparation to African Americans. Yeah, that sounds like another unifying liberal move, right?
We all know that this idea has been floated around for a hot minute but for it to move forward is big news, and it can only get worse for Americans if this were to happen. If the legislation is voted out of the committee, it will head to the House floor for the first full congressional vote on the measure since 1989.
Today we still live with racial disparities in access to education, health care, housing, insurance, employment, and other social goods that are directly attributable to the damaging legacy of slavery and government-sponsored racial discrimination,” boasted Committee Chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler.
Here is more from The Washington Times:
A bill that could lead to slavery reparations took a major step forward Friday when the House Judiciary Committee scheduled it for a debate and vote next week.
If the legislation — which would create a commission to study reparations — is voted out of the committee, it would head to the House floor for the first full congressional vote on the measure since 1989.
“Today we still live with racial disparities in access to education, health care, housing, insurance, employment and other social goods that are directly attributable to the damaging legacy of slavery and government-sponsored racial discrimination,” said Committee Chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler, New York Democrat, in a statement.
Mr. Nadler said the commission is “not intended to divide,” but “bring us closer to racial understanding and advancement.”
The commission would study the implications of slavery from 1619 to the present and develop reparations proposals for African-Americans.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Texas Democrat, is the bill’s lead sponsor. In a statement, she called the markup “a major step forward.”
The bill was reintroduced earlier this year after the committee held a hearing on it in 2019 on Juneteenth, the day African Americans celebrate the emancipation of slaves.
However, one thing that is not mentioned is that it is the Democrat policies that keep minorities held back. The left wants to keep their voting base in check by handing out bread crumbs to them for their vote in elections. The left is correct that there is still the legacy of slavery since they are the ones that are still keeping those in the minority community in chains by their racist policies. The left does not see minorities as people, but as political pawns to control and they do that by offering food stamps and Medicaid for their vote. The only racist party in America is the left and one can only hope that those in minority communities wake up and throw off these chains for good.
