Herschel Walker testifies before Congress against reparations bill

 

Herschel Walker says Black Americans shouldn’t get reparations

 

The former NFL player Herschel Walker said Black Americans should not receive reparations for slavery.

 

A virtual congressional hearing on the issue was being held for House Resolution 40, sponsored by Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, which would create a commission to study reparation proposals.

 

Walker, a standout athlete at the University of Georgia who won the Heisman Trophy before launching a long pro football career, questioned the feasibility of reparations and dismissed the idea itself as divisive.

 

“We use Black power to create white guilt,” he said early in his opening statement. “My approach is biblical. How can I ask my Heavenly Father to forgive me if I can’t forgive my brother? Reparations teach separation. Slavery ended over 150 years ago. How can a father ask his son to spend prison time for a crime he committed?”

 

After calling America “the greatest country in the world” and “a melting pot of a lot of great races,” Walker, a longtime friend of former President Donald Trump who was a featured speaker at the 2020 Republican National Convention, then launched into the practicality of reparation payments.

 

“Reparations, where does the money come from?” he asked the House Judiciary Committee subcommittee. “Does it come from all the other races except the Black taxpayers? Who is Black? What percentage of Black must you be to receive reparations? Do you go to 23andMe or a DNA test to determine the percentage of Blackness?”

 

“Some Black immigrants weren’t here during slavery, nor their ancestors. Some states didn’t even have slavery.”

 

Concluding his opening statement, he said: “I feel it continues to let us know we’re still African American, rather than just American. Reparation or atonement is outside the teaching of Jesus Christ.”

 

The Review of Black Political Economy estimated that reparations package would cost roughly $12 trillion and give each descendant of slavery $254,782. “The discussion of reparations is a journey in which the road traveled is almost more important than the exact destination,” he added.

 

The White House said last week that President Joe Biden would back a study of the issue.

 

“He certainly would support a study of reparations,” the White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, said. “He understands we don’t need a study to take action right now on systemic racism, so he wants to take actions within his own government in the meantime.”

You know America has become a snake eating his tail.Let’s look at a couple of facts the first patriot to die for this country was black. Reparations is a debt owed to foundational Black Americans WHO BUILT THIS COUNTRY LITERALLY ON OUR BACKS. WALKER DOES NOT SPEAK FOR ALK FOUNDATIONAL BLACK AMERICANS HE IS A COON AND A VERY MISINFORMED ONE AT THAT. IF YOU THINK YOUR COUNTRY WILL BE OKAY YOU ARE SADLY MISTAKEN. You owed the Jewish Community you paid them for their misery. YOU ENSLAVED A GROUP OF PEOPLE FOR 500 YEARS TO CREAT YOUR WEALTH AND WONDER WHY ITS BEING STOLEN AND GIVEN OUT AROUND THE WORLD. THE WHOKE REPARATIONS TALK IS A FRONT BY BOTH PARTIES. AMERICA WILL CONTINUE TO SUFFER UNTIL IT REPAYS THOSE THAT BUILT IT. ONLY WHITE SUPREMACIST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH PAYING IT BACK. THIS WHOLE WEBSITE IS NOTHING MORE THAN A WHITE SUPREMACY HAVEN.

If these foolish elected official’s pay out money to black people for reparations, then us northern folk need to sue those people getting the money for fighting to free them in the first place. Say $260,000 each ought to do it.

Slavery has been around throughout history, and just about every person can be sure they had ancestors that were either enslaved, conquered, massacred or persecuted. But there’s one group of people on this Earth still bitching and moaning about how they are the all-time FUBAR world champions, and that $$$ is the only way to fix it.

All the slaves and 2 generations afterwards are dead. No need to pay anyone about that time in history. The native American Indians heritage and special priviledge is also a joke. Those wronged are all dead. They were conquered by bigger country. End of story.
Dismantle all native American co-ops and land leases. it is ridiculous. Any deals made by the Federal Government have long been passed those promised anything.

Make the reservations and all the rest of it normal zones owned and controlled by the Federal Government and accept being a normal unspecial American tax payer always paying for everyone elses’ crap and never getting one single benefit other than military protection and by future Trannies,

So how is one going to prove slavery descendance? I’ve a great-great grandfather’s “will” directing that two named slaves (first English names only) be given to two individuals. Other than that there aren’t many clues to one’s genealogy.

So you give each descendant of slaves $240,000. Many of whom have never had that kind of money. As with most people of the world, how much of that money will they have left at the end of a year. Some will grow that amount, most will not. I’m not just addressing descendants of slaves, but just the average person in general. People who have wealth (earned wealth) do what makes them wealthy. People who are poor, do what makes them poor.

If you are half black, do you pay yourself? If the half of you which is black was not descended from slaves, but the white half IS descended from American slaves (there are many), what happens?

Stand by for more insanity brought to you courtesy of the party of slavery, racism, sexism, poverty, misery, and oppression – the DNC/CCP.

Just wondering. If a country practicing slavery today (and any Mickey Mouse or Winnie the Pooh can figure out who that is) tore itself apart in a horrific civil war to put a stop to it, would the great great grandchildren of the slaves deserve ca$h for that?

Democrats needed slavery for cheap labor. Now they flood America with cheap labor from South of the border to take jobs that a lot of African American folks have made their living doing but at half the price. Sadly black folks keep voting for the same party that keeps pushing them down.

All you white folks are descendents of slaves. Learn REAL history!! Even 3 generations back overwhelming majority were slaving down mines getting black lung if they survived the regular collapsing work face
EVERY day All day 6/ week.
Then learn about the Viking slavers Barbary slaver raids.
What safeguards are there that Black descendants of SLAVE OWNERS DEALERS are not paid ” reparations”?

Should they include the Scottish and Irish slaves of the English that got shipped to this country? Should they disqualify those enslaved by other blacks? When did the last slave die?

Actually many slavers were Irish and the Picts (Scots) Vikings ( Danes Swedes Norge) ALL mounted slaving raids on the ancient Britons

Give every black person in America the difference between 254,000 dollars and what they got in free education, medicare and welfare payments over their life.

Most would be owed nothing. Those that got a payout would put it to good use by starting a business or employing someone.

They got money for this nonsense but not enough to shore up social security so our elderly aren’t living in poverty? Seriously, a family of 4 instantly becomes millionaires?

They do this and countless Americans will simply get the F out of Dodge and become expats before they are subjected to the astronomical tax burden that follows the left’s exorbitant spending spree.

I have no emotional connection to my relatives in the civil war era, before or after. I don’t feel what their lives were like. I don’t know them. Why should I receive anything because of what they endured. Its so far removed its a joke. Although I do know of many slave families who were rewarded nicely and made lots of money, selling off the property left to them by slave “owners”.

Unless I got my history wrong, or … too white … The South, the slave-owning South, lost the Civil War to the North … us, which is why there is no more slavery. Reparations are the responsibility of the losers, in this case the South. Therefore, the South must pay any and all reparations. Obviously, that means getting paid in Confederate money.

Easy there, pick up a book (beyond a fourth grade level) & read it. Wasn’t about slavery, but more akin to what we are living through now. If it weren’t for you damn Yankees, the South would be free of such nonsense.

In the US lives many Europeans, Asians, and other ethnic groups that have slavery background. Whole eastern Europe nations were slaves more than 400 years. Many Europeans were shipped as slaves to Egypt. At times of Roman Empire there were Englishman slaves for then Romans. History of slaves goes on and on. All of these descendants welcome that chunk of reparations. Let’s keep it fair!

Herschel is pretty damn smart, my state, Idaho did not exist during slavery thus it means the most liberal states on the East coast should be the ones having to pay. If republican DC politicians had half a brain they should beating the drum on this BIG idea. Herschel, You the Man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is a study in California as well on reparations for slavery.
California had zero slaves.
Many of the gold miners after gold was discovered in Coloma 1848 were black. There was no slavery, kkk, or Jim Crow in California.
And there were no anti American sick climate change masking liberal Freaks either!
