Image result for dems want reparationsMembers 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."

Give me a BREAK ! 

    Ok IMHO we give reparations. On condition those that take it. Give up their American citizenship, passport and immigrate to Liberia the country that was made for them long ago ! That will stop this non-sense dead in it's TRACKS ! We'll hear no MORE from those crying for reparations.

  Reparations were paid in BLOOD on the battlefields of the Civil War. By both sides ! Of course this comes from one of the most corrupt black politicians in DC.

Amen !

Yes,I want reparations for what these miscreants like Conyers have done to our country.

Ok, when they return all the money they have gotten for welfare, healthcare, EITC tax credits, food stamps, education funding, housing subsidies, free phones etc etc

Don't forget years of Affirmative Action where priority was given in hiring to color of skin vs actual job qualifications. Need to pay back all the talented people that were denied fruits of their hard work and talents so minimally qualified people of color could be hired. Also reparations should be paid to those of us that had to put up with these affirmative action hires attitude of I don't need to perform at a high level to stay working here because I will pull the race card. So those of us had to pick up their slack and performance gaps to keep our company afloat!

  

this is just pathetic...all they want is free money

how about doing away with  social security and returning the money to it's rightful  owners

let's see tax statements from the members of the congressional black caucus

Along with my guns, "out of my cold, dead hands!"

He should send the bill to the tribal chiefs in Africa who sold their people into slavery

Not this again!

First, there are no slaves alive... not even second generation survivors of slavery...

Next, the Black community has been receiving reparations since 1964, thru various Civil Rights Acts and Programs.  They have been the benefactors of massive welfare forums... housing, food, education, transportation, medical, etc.  Congress has passed various pieces of legislation which promote affirmative action including ... the Civil Rights Act, the Equal Opportunity Employment Act, Affirmative Action programs, set asides for minority businesses and government contractors, SBA cut outs and other programs, specifically designed to provide financial and other advantages to Blacks and their businesses. The Black community is a privileged minority which has enjoyed trillions of dollars in government reparations... it is time that these programs are closed... stopped not expanded.

Finally, our forefather's paid reparations, in the form of blood and treasure, during the Civil War... 600K dead and millions more crippled, the South in ruins, taking it nearly 100 years to recover.  I would think that any reparations owed have been more than satisfied. 

It is disgraceful how some elements of our society believe they are owed  a living... claiming reparations from those who never owned a slave. It is further telling, how many of the Blacks today have NO ROOTS in America's slave days... because their families arrived in the US after the civil war... but rail about non-existent claims of injury and call for reparations. 

These individuals are of the worst sort... and need to be soundly and roundly told NO.  If there is any slavery practiced in the world today it is happening in Africa... Black on Black slavery.

ALERT ALERT

The Fall Of Fake News!! Quiet Shake-Up At MSNBC After Station Hemorrhages Viewers Following Mueller Debacle 

Reports are surfacing about a quiet shake-up of personnel at MSNBC after the cable news station lost more than 30% of their audience after the Mueller debacle.

Apparently MNSBC doesn’t think their financial woes are newsworthy given that they didn’t run any breathless stories about their own failings.

News of MSNBC’s collapse can’t come as a surprise to insiders who undoubtedly are fully aware that their audience no longer trusts them.

One source familiar told Mediaite the changes came amidst mounting complaints from NBC News chief Andy Lack about a dip in MSNBC’s ratings following the end of the Mueller investigation. In May, ratings for the network in the advertiser coveted 25-54 demo were down 32% year over year.

MSNBC viewers were asked: How much do you agree that MSNBC regularly reports made up or fake news about Donald Trump and his administration?

The responses were devastating! While 35% or respondents agree that MSNBC pushes Fake News, only 24% disagreed. That’s a ratings death sentence!

What do you expect from a channel that boasts disgraced liar, Brian Williams, and race pimp, Al Sharpton?

MAJOR SHAKEUP AT MSNBC - Ratings crater after Mueller Report Debacle! 

MSNBC Shakeup: Jonathan Wald and Dan Arnall Take Dayside

Flashback: MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow’s Ratings Plummet To Yearly Low

MSNBC primetime host Rachel Maddow brought in her worst weekly ratings of the year last week.

Her show last week averaged 2,324,000 viewers, with an average audience of 337,000 in the 25-54 age demographic, both of which mark yearly lows for the liberal television host, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Maddow first saw a dramatic drop in ratings following the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Her previous low for a week in 2019 was the last week in March, the first full week after Mueller submitted his conclusion to Attorney General William Barr, where she averaged 2,458,000 viewers with 392,000 in the demo.

She spent two years dissecting every aspect of the special counsel’s investigation into whether President Donald Trump conspired with the Russians to win the 2016 presidential election. The night Mueller submitted his findings to Barr, Maddow appeared to hold back tears over the fact that neither the president nor any family members were indicted.

Compared to Maddow’s low ratings last week, Fox News’ Sean Hannity, whose program is often the most-watched among all cable news shows, averaged 3,108,000 viewers with just under half-a-million viewers in the key demographic.

She also nearly tripled CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s weekly ratings. His program only had 880,000 viewers with 225,000 in the key demo.
