#1 education, infrastructure, and other projects for black communities

"Holy mackerel! And she was soundin' so presidential there, tooooo." "More like, 'residential,' huh, Kingfish?" "You said it, Andy! I'm afraid I got me some serious reservations now." "Well, it is a pretty big meal." "That it is, my boy. And as long as they puts plenty of parkin' in them projects for our brand new automobiles..." "To tell you the truth, Kingfish, I kinda had my eye on one of them Indian motorcycles." "Well, I guess we'll be all right, then."

#3 When they burn it all down, at least we can refuse to honor the indentured level of debt they've tried to chain us to. Tell the debt holders to go collect directly from these pols.

#4 Obama got an extra $1 trillion/year for 8 years. Did blacks become any better off during that time or did their economic prospects decline?

Contrast and compare w/ the 2 years under Pres. Trump.

#5 Do the Democrats really think Americans are going to stand for paying for this cockamamie notion of reparations? That's a non-starter for any ideas of fairness and civility. Just another thumb in the eye for people they don't like. Trying to solve any past problems of racism are not solved by current racism against some other non-black group.

The population of the Union was 18.5 million. In the Confederacy, the population was listed as 5.5 million free and 3.5 million enslaved. In the Border States there were 2.5 million free inhabitants and 500,000 enslaved people.

Are all the people who came after the Civil War expected to pay reparations? Silliness.

#7 Will Barack Obama be entitled to reparations? He is not a descendant of slaves - his father grew up in Kenya. Most slaves in the US came from western Africa.
I'm sure that people like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, etc. will be able to "prove" they are descended from slaves.

#8 K. Harris's dad recently disclosed that his family were slaveowners in Jamaica.

Her Mom's a Brahmin - not a figurative one but an actual member of the Brahmin caste, ie the very definition of privilege.

These people are not only stupid, they're shameless liars.
