  1. This act will have a catastrophic outcome. The Government is estimating they need "To pay at least $500,000" to every living Black man, Black woman and Black child.

  2. REPARATIONS! Aug '21 Xi Jinping's Communist Chinese Government IS PAYING $10,000 CASH to Black American Households for accidental Covid 19 lab release from Wuhan. Contact Your Democratic Party Rep ASAP!

  3. question….so what about the 350,000 white people and families who died fighting to end slavery.. do they still have to pay reparations? What about the thousands of black slave owners that lived in the USA what about those families…are they going to pay too.. also Im Irish our family never had slaves we came over as indentured servants.. do we have to pay too even though many died in my family fighting to end slavery???

  4. Ok now I'm half black. Will I be getting half of the reparations that black people do? Personally I think I should get twice as much. I'm discriminated against by black people for not being black enough and by white people to for not being white enough. Also will people like Obama or Lebron James be getting reparations as well? I think i'd be easier just to have the US fold up and start another country like the USSR did. Our country starts today. We got nothing to ask forgiveness about. No more apologies.

  5. As a person of Irish heritage should I demand reparations from the English crown? Over 1000 years of genocide, displacement, oppression, stolen lands, mass rape, torture, wholesale slaughter, and slavery perpetrated by the English against my ancestors. Somehow the Irish have recovered and we are thriving. Whatโ€™s your excuse in America?

  6. Nothing more than a 'free money' grab. I was not alive when slavery was going on. The black people of today were not subjected to slavery. Why should my tax money be handed over to someone who was never a slave? How about 'free money' for all the soldiers that died defending this country, first? That should come before any slave reparations. We are, what, $25 trillion dollars in debt? Whose going to pay all this money?

  7. You're not ENTITLED to reparations! Over 600,000 brave Americans, almost all of them white, gave their lives in the Civil War fighting to give you your freedom. Your 'reparations' were paid in full in 1865!

  8. The people who truly deserve reparations are the Native American Indians. The white man killed more than 145 million. Making it one of the worst genocide in history.

  9. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ committed the brutal acts of Chattel slavery, not African Nations. America ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ practiced the lynching in Jim Crow, not African Nations, ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ committed redlining, not African Nations. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ reneged on countless post civil war treaties, not African Nations. America ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Burned Black Americans who voted ๐Ÿ—ณ, Not African Nations. America ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ advanced modern medicine by experimenting on Black Americans, not African Nations …on and on to 2021, so I ask why are you bringing Africa upโ‰๏ธ

  10. This is absolutely a no-brainer. We do not need to pass a bill to pay descendants of slaves. Instead, we should reduce the federal income tax rate for them, for a fixed period of time. This tax relief should only extend to working Americans who can clearly demonstrate (via Census, historical and court records, etc.) that they are related to slaves and descendants who had land taken illegally. This provides some level of recognition and relief. This is America…no amount of money will end racism. It is part of our culture. This is why South Africa's laughed at us when we placed sanctions on them due to apartheid.

  11. My ancestors were enslaved by the Romans. But they were equal opportunity slavers. Does that make them exempt? Or is there a statute of limitations on slavery?

  12. You don't bring racism to an end by constantly yelling "RACIST, RACIST, RACIST".
    Do not force the son to pay for the sins of the father. Do not make victims out the children of victims.

  13. Reparations happened when 100s of thousands Union soldiers died so that slavery could be abolished. They have already been compensated for slavery.

  14. I don't see national reparations for slavery happening. Deciding who should pay would be too complicated because various people were involved in the slave trade and enslavement in the U.S. Will any Africans have to pay for capturing and trading rival tribes to Europeans? Will Native American slave owners from the Five Civilized tribes have to pay up? Will descendants of Black slave owners have to pay something?

  15. If it had not been for slavery, NONE of you would even exist cuz grandpa and grandma would have never met, and grandpa slave owner wouldn't have met grandma slave and made YOU. ๐Ÿคฃ Think about THAT Mr and Miss MU-LA-T-TO! THAT'S A GOOD-LOOKING COMBINATION! Very strong and handsome! Good combination of genetics! Be glad U exist. That's a compliment ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

  16. Reparations don't have to be paid in money. As long as the slave descendants can see that America truly is sorry should be enough, I think. Basically what I'm saying is that payment is nice, but not necessary because apologies are not about money.

  17. US Govt, needs to buy Bitcoin like Gold reserves, then give out prorated Bitcoin to Indians/ former slave ancestors for reparations / WIN / WIN if politicians are serious about helping the Economy / poor…..

  18. Ask yourself this.What percent of modern Americans can trace their roots back to slave owners? That's right less than 3% and guess what, the President biden's family, and Harris's family both owned slaves and plantations. No wonder they feel so guilty. I will not pay for sins I did not commit. My extended family lost 23
    members fighting to end slavery. My family were part of the founding of
    the republican party's fight against the Democratic Southern slave
    owners. I will not pay for the sins of Democrats.
