We’re about to have a discussion about something that’s been on the minds of the far left for years: black reparations. In the spirit of unity, we’re going to punish whole swaths of people for the sin of slavery for which they bear zero responsibility. Does anyone see this becoming a racial trainwreck? I do. I can see this coming from 1,000 miles away. Slavery is dead. The people who owned slaves in America when it was legal are LONG dead. The current folks living now have zero part in that heinous system of oppression but make them foot the bill because…feelings. If you want disunity, then debate this topic and waste everyone’s time. Congress has become a hall of theatrics and not governing. This is a prime example. It was introduced by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX). This is the furthest such a proposal has gone in Congress—but it’ll likely not pass. That’s not the point, however. We’re getting a window into the world Democrats want to create if they get the legislative majorities to do so (via WaPo):
A House committee on Wednesday approved legislation to create a commission to make recommendations on paying reparations to the descendants of enslaved people, the furthest the bill has advanced since it was first introduced more than 30 years ago.
As expected, the vote broke on party lines, 25 to 17.
