If Approved Here’s How Much Slavery Reparations Will Cost

14

There is nobody alive that owes anybody anything from this time in our history, Not to mention the fact that more than half of our American citizens African-American are stating we don’t need this stuff you (Dems) are sending us back to the 1800s!

The very idea of retribution is ridiculous you want to retribution then go back to your own people who sold you originally oh and good luck with that.

But still, some of the Dems might support some forms of reparations for slavery!

A new bill would calculate potential costs of reparations — and by Yahoo Finance estimates, these could reach as high as $17.1 trillion.

Last week, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held the first hearing in a decade on H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. The bill was first introduced in 1989 by former Congressman John Conyers (D-MI). Conyers reintroduced the bill each year until his retirement in 2017 — and each year, the bill languished in Congress.

The bill’s focus was not to pass reparations, but to research the impact slavery had on black Americans and develop proposals for redress.

Presidential candidates Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Beto O’Rourke and Julian Castro supporting some form of reparations. But while the Democratic-controlled House is willing to hear the bill, it seems likely that a bill on reparations will die in the Senate where Republicans have a majority. When asked about the hearing, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said he opposed the measure, given that “not one of us currently living are responsible” for slavery.

There are approximately 30 million slaves in the world TODAY. If Democrats truly cared about human dignity, they would be calling attention to this current atrocity instead of trying to collect political points for something that ended in the US in 1865.

No one living today was a slave then.
No one living today was a plantation owner, nor ‘Master’.
Some Afro-Americans need to quit acting like they are still slaves.
I think Kanye said it best: get off the plantation!


Social media censorship is suppressing the truth about the dangers of globalism and brutal cultures infiltrating the west. Please share this article wherever you can. It is the only way we can work around their censorship and ensure people receive news about issues that Democrats and the mainstream media suppress.

  1. Where exactly are they going to FIND all the Slave-OWNERS that they want to PAY these reparations???
    And the SLAVES that get paid….

    • in the grave yard because thats where they are all at, no slaves or slave owners are alive today in the USA anyway.

    • The financiers of the Atlantic slave trade are all dead. However, slave trading still goes on in the Sudan and Chad. Cory Booker doesn’t seem to have a problem with that. This proposal to provide “reparations” has NOTHING to do with justice. It has to do with seeing more and more people in the black working class moving to the republican party and dems panicking to get them back. Buying their allegiance is not new. It’s how President Johnson got most black voters over to the democratic party with his “New Society”. No matter that it’s bankrupting the nation. That was never a consideration. It’s about shoring up the voter base and expanding it. President Trump has reenergized the economy and black adults seeking employment are finding it. I’m hoping that most of these folks see through this charade and recognize who advanced the real deal.

  2. And just how much should we pay to each descendent.
    And if said descendent is currently on some sort of government support (reparations), then lets deduct that amount.
    And if that deduction exceeds that reparation, then lets Bill them for the difference.
    And what happens when the Democrats discover there were more white slaves than black – a lot of snowflakes will look pretty stupid when they realize the education they paid for wasn’t worth it.
    As for the Indians…not even going to go there.

    • They must present official proof of their ancestors being slaves, and then they will be paid the exact amount said ancestor was sold for on the auction block, not a penny more, and it must be reported to the IRS as taxable income!

      • Paid from WHOM ? ?

        People who never owned a slave in their life ? ?
        Just another DUMBycrat way of stealing our tax money and buying votes…
        why should we pay for someone else’s actions ? ?

  3. *I* want reparations for the government stealing 1/3 of my paycheck every week for the last 40 years to pay for leeching Welfare and Food Stamps, etc

  4. If repatriations are instituted then all Democrats should pay them as they are the party that started and kept slaves,but seriously what about the whites who were put into indentured servitude who had less rights than slaves.

  5. The first slaves were WHITE Indentured Servants who paid up to 7+ years of slavery to pay for their passage over here from Europe

    ooops

  6. NO doubt about it, Slavery was a terrible thing. Remember this, the first person to buy a slave was BLACK.

    I would agree with paying reparation to any living SLAVE. I don’t think there are any ex-slaves alive.

    The desandents of slaves did not endure the sufferings the slaves themselves had to endure, who had, although difficult, opportunities to better themselves. Some did so, others played the pity me game and now they want money.

  7. Slavery has been a normal part of life throughout the entire world, during the entire period for over 30 Centuries before the African slave trade to the New World began… There are at least 15 verses in the both the Old and New Testament… EACH, with the word ‘Slave’. Yet not one-word condemning slavery! But you never hear this mentioned.
    I believe that we should strive as a nation to move Forward, NOT rehash a time that NONE of us living now had anything to do with… However…

    “Reparations” are used as a normal unfulfilled “Promise” by Democrats to Blacks every Election Season, to secure the Black Vote, then after Voting Day, it is promptly put back in storage until the next Election Season.

    Democrats are still pushing for Reparations for slavery as a legitimate idea. This proposal has gone mainstream despite the fact the last American slaves died off, over 40 years ago.

    Of course, the Democratic Party of today argues that African Americans, most of whom descended from slaves all deserve reparations. (Their being slaves is something we cannot whitewash or forget). This idea has obvious problems, with some of the most salient being that:
    1. No one alive today has ever been a slave and no one alive in this country has ever owned slaves.
    2. Democrats want to steal money from people whose ancestors fought, bled, and died to end slavery!
    3. 645,000 white men died and paid “reparations” with their blood to free the slaves.
    4. There was one life lost in the Civil War for every 6 Slaves that were freed!
    5. Many Whites and people of other races were immigrants who came to the USA, AFTER the Civil War!
    6. There are some TWO Million African Blacks who got off the boat, AFTER the Civil War, until today!)
    7. Yet Southern Democrats whose ancestors actually OWNED slaves would pay an equal “share”!

    Democrats claim that “DACA” kids shouldn’t have to pay for their parents crimes, but ALL White people are still responsible for pre Mid-19th Century Slave Owners?

    WHO SHOULD PAY THEN?
    Southern Democrats first and foremost, then all other Democrats… INCLUDING BLACK Democrats, because Free-Blacks in the South OWNED Slaves too!

    So the Black Dems get to “Pay” themselves… after an obligatory Governmental “Slight Charge for Shipping and Handling”!

    Bottom line: don’t let the Democrats change America for the worse. Remember November!

  8. The Leftists that would have EVERYONE believing that the ONLY slaves in the entire history of the world were Blacks from Africa and that slavery ONLY occurred here in the USA.

    The Irish Slave Trade – The Forgotten “White” Slaves
    The Slaves That Time Forgot
    By John Martin
    They came as slaves; vast human cargo transported on tall British ships bound for the Americas. They were shipped by the hundreds of thousands and included men, women, and even the youngest of children.
    Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form of punishment. They were burned alive and had their heads placed on pikes in the marketplace as a warning to other captives.
    We don’t really need to go through all of the gory details, do we? We know all too well the atrocities of the African slave trade.
    But, are we talking about African slavery! It was King James II and Charles I who also led a continued effort to enslave the Irish. Britain’s famed Oliver Cromwell furthered this practice of dehumanizing one’s next-door neighbor.
    The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners to be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid-1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.
    Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves in the New World were actually white.
    From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.
    During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia, and New England. During this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.
    Many people today will avoid calling the Irish slaves what they truly were: Slaves. They’ll come up with terms like “Indentured Servants” to describe what occurred to the Irish. However, in most cases from the 17th and 18th centuries, Irish slaves were nothing more than human cattle.
    As an example, the African slave trade was just beginning during this same period. It is well recorded that African slaves, not tainted with the stain of the hated Catholic theology and more expensive to purchase, were often treated far better than their Irish counterparts were.
    African slaves were very expensive during the late 1600s (50 Pounds Sterling). Irish slaves came cheap (no more than 5 Pounds Sterling). If a planter whipped, branded, or beat an Irish slave to death, it was never a crime. The death was a monetary setback, but far cheaper than killing a more expensive African. The English masters quickly began breeding the Irish women for both their own personal pleasure and for greater profit. Children of slaves were themselves slaves, which increased the size of the master’s free workforce. Even if an Irish woman somehow obtained her freedom, her kids would remain slaves of her master. Thus, Irish moms, even with this new found emancipation, would seldom abandon their kids and would remain in servitude.
    In time, the English thought of a better way to use these women (in many cases, girls as young as 12) to increase their market share: The settlers began to breed Irish women and girls with African men to produce slaves with a distinct complexion. These new “mulatto” slaves brought a higher price than Irish livestock and, likewise, enabled the settlers to save money rather than purchase new African slaves. This practice of interbreeding Irish females with African men went on for several decades and was so widespread that, in 1681, legislation was passed “forbidding the practice of mating Irish slave women to African slave men for the purpose of producing slaves for sale”. In short, it was stopped only because it interfered with the profits of a large slave transport company.
    England continued to ship tens of thousands of Irish slaves for more than a century. Records state that, after the 1798 Irish Rebellion, thousands of Irish slaves were sold to both America and Australia. There were horrible abuses of both African and Irish captives. One British ship even dumped 1,302 slaves into the Atlantic Ocean so that the crew would have plenty of food to eat.
    There is little question that the Irish experienced the horrors of slavery as much (if not more in the 17th Century) as the Africans did. There is, also, very little question that those brown, tanned faces you witness in your travels to the West Indies are very likely a combination of African and Irish ancestry. In 1839, Britain finally decided on its own to end its participation in Satan’s highway to hell and stopped transporting slaves. While their decision did not stop pirates from doing what they desired, the new law slowly concluded THIS chapter of nightmarish Irish misery.
    But, if anyone, black or white, believes that slavery was only an African experience, then they’ve got it completely wrong.
    Irish slavery is a subject worth remembering, not erasing from our memories.
    But, where has this ever been taught in our public (and PRIVATE) schools???? Where are the stories of Irish Slavery in the history books? Why is it so seldom discussed?
    Do the memories of hundreds of thousands of Irish victims merit more than a mention from an unknown writer?
    Is their story to be one that their English pirates intended: have the Irish story utterly and completely disappear as if it never happened?
    None of the Irish victims ever made it back to their homeland to describe their ordeal. These are the lost slaves; the ones that time and biased history books conveniently forgot.

    Those whom starvation didn’t kill were victims of the plague. And those in roughly coastal areas were taken by the other plague, of Muslim slave traders.

  9. Some believe reparations should be claimed in person by the aggrieved parties from individual taxpayers they believe are responsible. Many law-abiding taxpayers will gladly pay – in precious metals, primarily copper and lead, in large caliber or small, singly or in multiples as the situation dictates. Obviously there will be no repeat claimants…..
