Predictable History, Unpredictable Past: Sheila Jackson-Lee Thinks ...

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) on Wednesday called for the passage of her bill to study slave reparations, arguing that it's "the American government's responsibility to pay her debt," regardless of how many Americans today do not have slaveowners in their family history.

The Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act, which has 131 Democratic co-sponsors in the House, would establish a committee to "examine slavery and discrimination in the colonies and the United States from 1619 to the present and recommend appropriate remedies."

Jackson Lee connected her bill to the death of George Floyd, who died May 25 in the custody of Minneapolis police. His death has sparked weeks of nationwide protests calling for an end to police brutality toward Black Americans.

"The American government still owes a debt," Jackson Lee said at a press conference with other members of the Congressional Black Caucus. "The Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act is the answer to the original sin. It is, in fact, a restorative and repair approach to the extreme disparities that rendered and exhibited the horrors of the killing and the murder of my former constituent, George Floyd."

  • The blacks say they want equality, yet they cause riots, are looting, tearing down statues, making threats, and causing division among both races. They had the same chance to better themselves when they were offered access to the same education as the whites. Some took advantage of it and made something of themselves but most did nothing to improve their lives, and they still want us to make reparations. They got what they worked for, and we owe them nothing. On a cold day in hell...

  • What causes conflicts and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from the passions at war within you? You crave what you do not have. You kill and covet, but are unable to obtain it. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask. And when you do ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may squander it on your pleasures." See James 4:1-3)

    James 5:6
    You have condemned and murdered the righteous, who did not resist you.,, and so the world continues to murder the righteous out of lust for their goods and need...  a desire to DOMINATE your brothers and sisters.  A man without God as his Master is a most devious and desperate creature... seeking that which can not be found in the FLESH... History records man's wondering about the Earth, looking for more and never finding enough.... his insatiable appetite will destroy him as he searches the Earth for what he can not have in the flesh... a new life, an immortal expression of GOD incarnate... a union with his Creator.

    Strong's Greek: 1937. ἐπιθυμέω (epithumeó) -- desire, lust after
  • we have lazy people who want what the hard-working man and women wat's that's where the problem lies.

    • For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. “The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom... The fool is overtaken by his own deceit and wonders why?

  • They got their 'reparations' when they became AMERICAN CITIZENS!!!!! We could have shipped them back HOME TO AFRICA!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Take it to the Democrat Party. They were the party of the large plantation owners in the ante-bellum South and the party that gave us the Klan, Jim Crow, and segregation throughout the country. Tell them to empty their campaign chests and give the money to black people (so it can make its way up the wealthy), and channel all donations to that "cause" for the next 10 years. We'd all be better off.

  • What an IDIOT

  • Where was the mention of the over 900 black slave owners in teh Louisiana territory? How are the Democerta salve owners going to go after the reletives of those black slave owners? 75% of people living in the US today did not have ancestors that owned slaves! My grandparents came to the US in the 1890's, long after the civil war. I did not own slaves. The slave owner ancestors are the Democrats. They started the K K K and are still in charge of that racist organization. The Democrats rejeted the civil rights act. The Democrats instigated the Jim Crow era. What is really messed up is that the Democrats are the ones that are controlling the black "slaves" currently. The BLM is headed by WHITE people, Democrats, and with the main stream conspiracy news media not reporting the truth, black people are once again being controlled by the Democrat "slave" owners.

  • BYT - if America owes anyone I would think it would be the American Indians and the veteran families. 

  • Pay her debt? What was her masters name? OBTW - Rep. Sheila Jackson was put in office to serve all the people and accepted votes from 'non-blacks' so does she owe anything to the voters who gave her a voice?
