US Conference of Mayors supports commission to study giving reparations to African-America
LINK

It's moving, ever so slowly, ever so surely!

"Nobody talks about cash, but Black people understand cash," Johnson told Fox News.

Under his proposal, an estimated 40 million African-Americans would get $350,000 in direct cash payments over 30 years (costing the average taxpayer roughly $2,900 a year, according to his office). The $350,000 would signify the wealth disparity between African-Americans and white Americans.

Not my cash, that's for sure!

I'll go to war to fight this.

After thinking about it, I'm fine with reparations for anyone that wants them as long as it's a under $15k per person and a mandatory flight to Africa that bars them and their descendants from ever coming back here.

LBJ already did that, just under another name calling it his "Great Society."

It might work if only those married and raising their kids in a two family home qualify.

Bro, these people are black. They are not from Africa. Drop the hyphens. It is "Black Lives Matter", not African Lives Matter.

Chill. The results won't go well for them and you will never hear about this again. Guaranteed.

No tell us how to account for all the partial people and black people who have not been here that long.

Everybody has 64 direct ancestors from the era. Good luck.

American tax payers have poured trillions into the black communities through a never ending list of programs, and guess what, the black community expects even more hand outs.

How many Africans made it to our shores? These 40 million are the sum total of the current AA population. How many of them are direct descendants of the slave trade? I also want to know why in the hell I have to pay when my mother’s bloodline didn’t arrive here until a little over 100 years ago. Anyway, the Poverty Pimps are now in mayoral form.

What is that, $14 trillion over 30 years? That’s fine. We spend over a trillion a year on wellfare. To fund it, cut that in half and make black people ineligible for any of the remaining wellfare benefits like Medicare, Medicare, food stamps, etc.

Well, not business to tell some stupid municipality what to do, but unless the municipality was involved in the slave trade.... hint, they probably weren't than its unconstitutional pandering.

Municipalities don't have any money.

Mayors are municipalities, how did the American tax payer get involved?

See how they don't say who is paying? Heck, if they can find a dumbass to pay for it... I say good for them but its not the United States.

re: US Conference of Mayors supports commission to study giving reparations to African-America
The logic in this plan is flawed. The only reparations I will support is bringing African Americans up to the level they would be at if their ancestors hadn't been taken from Africa. So whats the average person's wealth in their home country vs where are they now.

If it would be better for them to be back home, offer the difference or a plane ticket home.



I plead the fifth as to what my reaction will be if they push this through as-is.
