“We” need to rid Washington DC of every communist.
The h3ll we do! We need none of the above.
I’ll happily pay reparations to any black person who was born in 1865 or earlier, and is still alive today.
I see the problem.
He must be related to Stacey the Hippo!
Is this a troll on FR? We all know better than to forfeit our liberty in exchange for slavery for everyone.
“We need”is socialist/adolescent/tween speak for “gimme”.

While you’re at it, add these as well :
* Free transportation for all
* Free college for all
* Free housing for all
* Free clothing for all
* Free food for all
I think their goal is for all government jobs to be held by black and only black people. Hello Rwanda.
Baloney! Every Communist needs an addition of a 3rd nostril.
That would leave only about 1000 people in the entire city.
Kiss my arse, Bowman.
My family didn’t have slave[s] and I don’t intend my tax dollar should go to pay you or any non slave for slavery that hasn’t been here in well over one hundred years.
So you can kindly flock off.
The only reparations due people like him are due is “repatriation” to their ancestral homelands from which they were sold into slavery by their fellow persons of color...
It is those countries which created them as slaves that should be asked for reparations...
Also, it’s interesting that most of those countries are still making money selling people as slaves...
Dang! I could swear I saw that guy running down Pennsylvania Ave with a purse he had snatched...
Without question it would pass. Not only does have 173 co-sponsors, but it sets up one of the favorite vehicles of the criminal class to take credit and score political points for doing nothing while putting the blame on someone else when things don't work out: it sets up a commission.
H. R. 40
To address the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865 and to establish a commission to study and consider a national apology and proposal for reparations for the institution of slavery, its subsequent de jure and de facto racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans, and the impact of these forces on living African-Americans, to make recommendations to the Congress on appropriate remedies, and for other purposes.
Time to thin the herd...
Didn’t some one say it would cost 70 trillion for single payer/med for all?
I would argue that you have been receiving reparations for over fifty years. And..... if you want a revolution, just try and pass this.
I want compensation for a great great uncle and for my great grandfather’s leg. They were lost freeing the slaves.
What does my family get for that?
