Unless you are over 160 years old, chances are you never owned a slave. Yet according to H.R. 40, a bill that pushes for financial reparations to American blacks, blaming other Americans for “white supremacy and systemic racism,” you’ve got to pay. In 2021, money is clearly the only way to right the wrongs that the bloody Civil War was fought from 1861-1865 to end, resulting in the deaths of approximately 750,000 American soldiers.
Longtime talk show host and author, Michael Savage, exposing what he refers to as “reparation racketeers,” calls the movement to impose this outrageous and divisive fraud on non-black Americans writes, “I’ve been paying them all my life through affirmative action, through high taxation, through the cost of policing and prisons.”
As would be expected the local newspaper’s editorial columnist, radical leftist and resident race-baiter Elvia Diaz‘s recent commentary advocates for Joe Biden to back the reparations bill. The newspaper heralds its commitment to ethic diversity, but veers far afield from diversity of thought.
No one promoting this madness explains how “blackness” is defined. Would having one black parent qualify for reparations? How about one grandparent or great-grandparent? Where does it end? And why should people who never owned slaves pay? Many Americans are descendants of immigrants who came to the United States long after the Civil War was fought from 1861 to 1865. It was Republican President Abraham Lincoln who is credited with freeing slaves — originally brought to this country by Arab slave traders, which highlights the absurdity of blacks, such as Lew Alcindor and Cassius Clay taking Arabic/Muslim names.
General Ulysses S. Grant led the Union armies to victory over the Confederacy in the American Civil War. As an American hero, Republican Grant was later elected to two terms as President of the United States (1869–1877). But the BLM militants, ignorant of history, who engaged in looting and vandalism, toppled his statue, along with those of Lincoln and our nation’s founders.
We have nothing to pay “reparations” for. Just as any citizens who educate themselves and strive to accomplish their goals, blacks have achieved business success in the USA.
