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.

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
