(Right Country) – Cedric Richmond, a White House senior adviser, spoke with “Axios on HBO,” stating that it’s totally “doable” for President Biden to make progress toward reparations during the first term — and hopefully his last — as Congress conducts studies on the issue of slavery.

According to Axios, Biden stated on several occasions during the presidential election that he is in total support of creating a commission to study and come up with proposals for reparations for descendants of African-American slaves.

Just last week, a House panel listened to testimony on the piece of legislation, and Richmond is confident that it will pass. He went on to stated that the timeline for the commission isn’t knowable, “if you start talking about free college tuition to [historically Black colleges and universities] and you start talking about free community college in Title I and all of those things, I think that you are well on your way.”

“We have to start breaking down systemic racism and barriers that have held people of color back and especially African Americans,” Richmond went on to say. “[W]e have to do stuff now.”

Richmond then went on to point to an executive action that’s been taken by Biden “breaking down barriers in housing, making sure that African Americans can pass down wealth through homeownership, that their homes are not valued less than homes in different communities just because of the neighborhood it’s in.”

“We don’t want to wait on a study,” Richmond said. “We’re going to start acting now.”

Now, there’s a whole lot of problems with the idea of reparations that folks don’t want to talk about because they are afraid if they do, Democrats will come out of the woodwork and start slapping them around with “racist” labels. But we need to have these tough conversations, no matter how hated they might make us.

One problem with reparations is who gets to decide how much money to provide for the black community. How do we find out who is descended from slaves and who isn’t? Who pays for this? Is it only taken from white people or from everyone in the country, even if they and their ancestors had nothing to do with slavery? These are some major issues.

The bottom line is, we’ve made a lot of progress toward ending racism. However, it seems to me that reparations will only further divide the country. Not to mention there isn’t much support for the idea among the American people. Meaning that if reparations become a done deal, it might do serious harm to the Democratic Party. This could result in them losing key future elections and not being able to finish their socialist transformation of this country.

  1. I never owned slaves and ALL of the blacks in our country have never been slaves so why should I pay and why should they receive. This is tyrannical and insane

  2. Afro blacks have received TRILLIONS of dollars in govt. social welfare programs, grants, subsidies in education, housing, food stamps, medical care since the “Great Society” reparation program was initiated in the 1960’s. Another “great” plan by LBJ.
    Corporations have contributed hundreds of billions of dollars to Afro blacks
    Blacks picked cotton. They have not been slaves for 156 years. Is it not time they stand on their own and give up their dependence on hand outs?
    What happened to black pride? Apparently entitlement and greed are their priority rather than making a significant contribution to civilization.

  3. The poverty experienced in the black community is caused by factors beyond tracing back to slavery. Much of the poverty arises because black men have abandoned their jobs as fathers in the family situation which has deprived families of a bread winner and often the disciplinarian who might have pushed education and following rules. Too many single parent families headed by poorly educated women who try hard and hold low wage jobs have given children a poor view of their chances so they give up and follow the leader into drugs, gangs and crime to survive.Generational poverty and wealth gap will not be fixed by some unjustified one time payment.

  4. Absolutely pay reparations, two stipulations, first Democrats will pay for the reparations, they were thrones that owned slaves, created the KKK, and Jim Crow laws; second, any person that accepts the reparations check will renounce their American citizenship and be banned from ever entering the US. Those who want to be considered Americans, regardless of their skin color, and will not accept the check, are welcome to continue being a part of this experiment started over 200 years ago called America. The rest, wish you good luck, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

  5. If reparations are given, will that solve the racial devise? No! It will only cause a bigger rift. What happens when the individual reparations are spent and most of the money was spent foolishly?

  6. I am only second generation here, my family never owned slaves so why should I pay??? White slavers never ran into the jungle to capture blacks and enslave them. Tribal warfare created slavery in Africa and the loser became property of the winner. Blacks sold other blacks into slavery.

  7. the majority of white americans came to this country after slavery was abolished so why should we pay any reparations, besides this sounds like “sins of the father” to me
