Rep. Ayanna Pressley: 'Black Lives Matter is a mandate from the people. It's time. Pay us what you owe us.'
Washington Examiner ^ | June 26, 2020 | Andrew Mark Miller

Rep. Ayanna Pressley said on the House floor that the Black Lives Matter movement is a “mandate,” and the time has come for people to “pay us what you owe us.”

“I rise today on behalf of every black family that has been robbed of a child,” the Massachusetts congresswoman and member of “the Squad,” said. “On behalf of every family member that has been forced to see their loved one lynched on national television. Driving while black. Jogging while black. Sleeping while black. We have been criminalized for the very way we show up in the world. Under the harsh gaze of far too many, my black body is seen as a threat, always considered armed.”

“Centuries of institutionalized oppression will not be undone overnight, for racism in America is as structural as the marble pillars of this very institution," the Democrat added. "With the power of the pen we must legislate accountability, dismantle these systems, and move in the direction of justice and healing. The Justice in Policing Act is a critical step forward, and I applaud the leadership of the Congressional Black Caucus.”

Pressley continued: “But our work is unfinished. There is a rallying cry in communities across the nation. Black Lives Matter is a mandate from the people. It’s time. Pay us what you owe us. Our black skin is not a crime, it is the beautiful robe of nation builders.”

Go ask Planned Parenthood for reparations.

We owe you.....NOTHING!!! It’s been “paid for” a thousand times over already. Get a life. IF we gave you what you really deserved, you’d would be on a one-way boat back to Africa.

I owe you NOTHING. My family didn’t exist in this country when there was slavery here. Further, the majority of Americans during slavery didn’t own slaves. Screw you.

Lady I don't owe you a thing.

On the other hand the Buffalo Solders killed some of my kin.

So, let's talk about what you owe ME.
