Former President Obama Says All Black Americans Should Get Reparations Because The U.S. Was ‘Built On The Backs Of Slaves’

Barack Obama says reparations for all black Americans are 'justified'. Credit: Instagram/@barackobama 


 * Obama said reparations would have been met with 'white resistance' in a Renegades: Born in the USA podcast episode with Bruce Springsteen 
 * During his 2008 presidential campaign, Obama appeared to oppose reparations 
 * Reparations are payments made and programs created to help the descendants of slavery 
 * Obama said 'the talk of welfare queens' and 'the undeserving poor' would have made a reparations program 'counterproductive' 

Former President Barack Obama claimed reparations for black Americans are 'justified' but explained in his podcast with Bruce Springsteen that it was a 'nonstarter' during his presidency because of 'white resistence'. 

During his 2008 presidential campaign, Obama appeared to oppose reparations and argued that 'the best reparations we can provide are good schools in the inner city and jobs for people who are unemployed.' 



WNU Editor: The groundwork to make the case for paying reparations is already being prepared .... Biden Backs Studying Reparations as Congress Considers Bill (AP). 

But will America's non-black population agree to what will probably be a massive transfer of wealth to a specific racial group in the U.S.? 

You tell me.

I always thought that Trump would have been smart to push for free college tuition and free healthcare for citizens of African American descent.

Why?

"You tell me." Eventually it's going to happen. Part of the conditions for making this happen will be an end to the race war against being waged against non African Americans specifically against white people.

Such reparations would have already happened if not for the race war. Since this war is very profitable to some, there's incentive to keep it going. Essentially we'd have reparations to those of African American descent long, long ago if not for these race hustlers.

SAD.

It’ll create more division.
And what happens when you’re only a quarter black?
This’ll end in tears and violence.
Nothing will be resolved.
What a mess.

The more Fauci speaks, the more people despise him. He is 1 month past his sell by date. He should have take a curtain call in January and bowed out gracefully.

But he keeps on talking and people no longer think he is the smartest guy in the room or very smart at all.

Obama is following the same playbook. Before he passes on due to natural causes, he will be as despised at Bill, Hillary or Al.

The community gazing chic wears thin, when you have not one but two beach front mansions. Plus what about rising sea levels and global warming?

Only one quarter of my kids blood line was from people in the US prior to 1960. Why should they pay reparations? Why should they be at an economic disadvantage to blacks who would get helicopter money? I remember getting paid $600 as a GA. I also remember a black female GA getting 50% more than the rest of us. She was paid $900. We've already had reparations.

Then there's the descendents of Scottish slaves sent to the new world after the 1745 rebellion that need paying. It will be racist if they miss out. How about Africa paying reperations for all the Europeans kidnapped in coastal villages by the Barbary pirates & sold into slavery in Africa? If we play this slavery thing tight, we all might just get a cheque in the post. Heh heh heh. Keep ducking 🙉

There will be no end, it's intentional.

"abovez the view from Putin" as I know Putin hasn't weighed in on this. Perhaps you're Russian and may have some insight on his thinking. I certain don't and frankly it's irrelevant to the discussion.

Personally I think reparations are a terrible idea. The point I was making is it's going to happen at some point and would've already happened if some did not have a vested interest in keeping the race wars/racial tension alive.

They've been paid. Lyndon Johnson's Great Society attempts. Little to talk about there. Some people benefited, some didn't.
I think the country spent enough that time. Now the grandkids need something? Hogwash.

I think this would be a good idea but how would you regulate it? That's the question!

Would be better to repatriate all of black African decent back to Africa to take matters up with their black African slave masters and traffickers? By all means, give all of those to be returned from whence they came a free boat ticket and a $100 per person. Other countries should follow suite.

Give them $300,.000 or even $500,000 and if they take up the offer revoke their US citizenship.
