"Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) introduced two reparations resolutions on the first day of the 113th Congress.
The first, H.R. 40, is “to acknowledge the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865 and to establish a commission to examine the institution of slavery, subsequently de jure and de facto racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans, and the impact of these forces on living African-Americans, to make recommendations to the Congress on appropriate remedies, and for other purposes.”
Are you people serious? Are we going to go over this AGAIN?! I want reparations for my relatives who got killed on BOTH sides of the Civil War then. And World War One, and World War Two, Korea, Vietnam.
I mean REALLY!? It was almost 150 YEARS ago, if ANYONE should get Reparations it should be the Native American Indians, and we KNOW how well that went.
Quit your griping and moaning.
