Default Top Dems to Mitch: Zip it on slavery

Top Dems to Mitch: Zip it on slavery

By Michael McAuliff

new york daily news


Mitch McConnell has no business offering advice on how to deal with the never-resolved impacts of slavery, top Democrats declared Wednesday.
The Senate majority leader a day earlier said that “reparations for something that happened 150 years ago” was not a good idea, and that America has tried to deal with the “original sin of slavery by fighting a civil war, by passing landmark civil rights legislation, [and] we’ve elected an African-American president.”
The Republican senator was asked about the issue ahead of a Wednesday hearing in the House on a bill creating a panel to evaluate a “path to restorative justice” for descendants of slaves.
“Mitch McConnell has zero credibility on questions of racial, social and economic equality,” Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), chairman of the House Democratic conference, said at his weekly news conference.
“Our country is founded on slavery. It is so interwoven into the roots of our country and it is a stigma and a stain that we have to address,” said Rep. Katherine Clark (D-Mass.), the conference vice chairwoman. “We cannot look to (McConnell) for any sort of moral authority or guidance in how we should be addressing the issue of slavery and the impact today.”
McConnell’s opinion that no one alive now should have to pay for the consequences of slavery also caught the ear of panelists who testified at Wednesday’s hearing.
Author and journalist Ta-Nehesi Coates pointed to the fact that while the Civil War may have ended 150 years ago, the 77-year-old McConnell, who was born in Alabama and represents Kentucky, was very much alive to witness segregation and many other infringements on the rights and opportunities for African-Americans.

I liked what one advocate for it, said.. She said..
I am not interested in money to individuals.. but we have some Black University's that could use the funding.. That Education for people of color is a step in the right direction..
That money should be used to raise them up out of poverty.. by investing in those areas.
Before a dumpster supporter rants.. but under Dumpster, Blacks are at their lowest unemployment.. They are right on part of that.. Thank You Obama, for bringing the country out of the worlds worst recession in history, despite the GOP blocking you at every turn.. and that it has continued despite Dumspters, destroying everything that Obama did..
We are starting to see the effects of Dumpster.. things are slowing down.. not getting better.. now that he has put his fingers into the pie.

Rightfully so, we are still paying, not enough for what we did to the American Indians, in this country.. somethings, should never end, should they?
Imagine, "IF" American Indians, just got a 1% royalty on all the oil, gold and silver, and other minerals, that was taken from lands that were robbed from them..
