BREAKING: Congressional Black Caucus Creates Bill To Make White People Pay
The hate crime committed by four teenagers in Chicago in the past few days makes you stop and wonder. A boy with special needs held, tortured, verbally abused and recorded because of his skin is terrifying. It is obvious, and not just from this video, that hate crimes and racial prejudice are prominent and real. But what is truly scary is that this is our youth, these are our future. What are we teaching them? When we blame entire races, demographics or communities, what door are we opening?
The fact that these were teenagers, children really, is terrifying. This is our FUTURE.
Let’s change the conversation. This cannot be about our past anymore, it has to be about our future.
But the Congressional Black Caucus is working to get reparations for former slave crimes.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Members of the Congressional Black Caucus and other Democrats this week re-introduced legislation that would set up a commission to consider whether reparations should be paid to black Americans for slavery.
Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., has proposed the bill in each Congress for at least the last two decades.
A description of the bill said the legislation would set up a commission to both examine the possibility of reparations, but also an apology for the “racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans.”
It’s a response to the “fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States.”
I agree that the crimes of slavery are tragic. But returning again and again to these issues is not allowing healing. It is creating more tragedies.
