“It’s 2021; how are we to determine who gets reparations and who doesn’t?”
This question was posed by a young black woman who was taking her message of forgiveness to Tik Tok. She continues by saying that reparations aren’t the answer that we need here in the 21st Century.
The young lady quotes a minister in Oklahoma who claimed that we “cannot have true healing and reconciliation without reparations.” However, this young black woman said that she didn’t agree with that.
“Forgiveness will turn an open wound into a scar.”
There is a steep divide in America when it comes to reparations. According to a 2020 Reuters poll, only one in ten white Americans believe that we should pay reparations, while five in ten black respondents support it.
Indeed, 100PercentFedUp had an interesting previous report on reparations:
Everybody loves free stuff. For decades, the Democrat Party has fine-tuned the art of promising freebies in exchange for votes. Today, as most Americans watched in horror, limousine liberals like Hollywood actor and multi-millionaire leftist Danny Glover (net worth $40 million) sat in front of Congress to demand black Americans receive financial compensation from American taxpayers because they may have had relatives who, generations ago, were slaves.
Regardless of how divided this country might be on the subject, liberals still continue to push this hot-button issue. However, part of the reason why most Americans realize that this is nothing but bollocks is that they see through the scheme of the Democrats. Much like LBJ said that he would have them “voting Democrat for the next 200 years”, the Democrats are simply using this as a way to get taxpayer dollars to keep them voting Democrat for years to come.
In April, there was a Fox News Poll that found that 60 percent of Americans opposed paying cash reparations to those who descended from slaves, while only 32 percent support it. A Rasmussen poll also found that same month that just 21 percent of likely voters believe that taxpayers should foot the bill on reparations for those who can prove they are descended from slaves.
This also comes on the heels of Black Americans taking part in a massive awakening since the Trump Administration. They now realize that Trump has done what no other Republican had the courage to do; the man pulled the curtain back on the self-serving Democrats and exposed their dirty tactics that they use to continue to get minority support.
There is one person in particular who is opposed to reparations, and that would be former NFL safety and newly-elected U.S. Representative Burgess Owens. During a reparations hearing, Burgess Owens gave a scathing response to the Democrat party for their embarrassing efforts.
Owens told members of the U.S. Congress how he felt about the Democrat Party that he had belonged to, and how he felt about the proposed HR-40 bill that would study the effects of issuing reparations to black Americans. “I used to be a Democrat until I did my research. I realized pretty quickly that the Democrat party has caused a lot of misery to my race, so let’s make them pay the restitution.”
If only we had more black politicians with as much common sense as Burgess Owens.
