    1. All Democrats should be held accountable for the sins of their Party’s Past.
      Every Democrat should pay reparations !!!

    1. @fourclawrider The Celts were at war with Rome for centuries and beat them, which led to it’s sacking and downfall. How you figure that bears any resemblance to American slavery is beyond me. The fact is, slaves and their families were brought over in chains and treated worse than cattle. Mother’s watching their children get auctioned off, rape and endless beatings, constantly getting sick and diseased. All this work helped build the economy. Slaves that survived and their families never were given justice or compensation as repayment. We gave Native Americans reparations in casinos, tax breaks, and free education. What did slaves get? The KKK, job and house discrimination (this still affects us today), segregation, and sub par schooling and education in poor neighborhoods. Reparations don’t have to be cash payments nor should they be handed out en masse to every black person, but those with direct ancestry to slaves should receive some form of benefits from the government. It’s the right thing to do.

    2. @Jennifer Loftus Well isn’t that the whole point? Europeans were underdogs for most of history and we still came out on top, for a relatively short period that is likely over now I should add – the eastern superpower are slowly getting back in the pole position where they’ve always been. We didn’t get reparations, turned out fine, just given enough time. We focused on progress instead of the past.

    3. @Jake Veikoso Twigg blacks sold other blacks to the europeans. But only whites are held responsible for slavery i guess. Lets ignore that blacks have been enslaving each other for longer than whites.

    1. Dude added nothing constructive to this conversation. A former NFL player that probably has a TBI.

  1. Shame on you CNN for NOT asking the real authors of this argument..dragging out the tired old NAACP per usual. They are not at forefront of this cause and you know it!

    1. Rouge Et Noir for any Americans that want real news: do an in-depth study of a lawsuit by a relatively small number of BLACK (not African-American, they were born in America, therefore no hyphen) farmers against the USDA I believe it was by a man named Pickford, they kept adding bogus people on the list, money was found going to single black moms in Compton, CA…IF the Senate ever passed this insane Marxist wet dream then the fraud would make Medicare fraud pale in comparison, black people need to let go of SLAVERY because it doesn’t affect you one iota because you are not a slave…unless you vote for and support democrats, then you are still in chains

    2. @kevin w Tell Southerners to let go of confederacy. Tell the survivors of 9/11 to let it go. and Tell the Jews to let go of the Holocaust. You don’t get to tell Black Americans to let go of our history . Are you insane?

    1. Top Secret Productions LLC got THAT RIGHT these fools are trying to strongly suggest the Republican party were and are the savior’s of the black race

    2. Braves Country Unfortunately your argument holds no weight. The poorest states are ran by republicans. But yet they still vote overwhelmingly republican. Should they switch to Democrats? And it’s not the policies that Democratic’s put in place, but policies both Republicans and Democratic’s have put in place. They are secretly on the same team. They both serve green (money). You are basically saying that black people are sheep. Well sir, so are you and the millions of other white people that blindly vote Republican or Democrat. I’m sure you have heard of divide and conquer, well we as a country are doing that to ourselves with our political system. Rome fell from within, and unfortunately so will we. There is no outside threat more dangerous to us than we are to ourselves. You have been fooled my friend and as the old quote goes “it’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled”. In short, both parties are trash and don’t have “the people’s” best interests in mind.

    3. Veritas Est Lux wow talk about disingenuousness. You better zip up, you’re false equivalency is showing.

      “…as a former Democrat…”

      “…Democrat Plantation™️…”

      Whatever you say pal 😂😂

    1. I just watched it a couple hours ago, was amazing. But they’re known as “the conservative twins” now.

    1. There is no explanation because it’s logically impossible, just another pandering attempt to recoup votes that Hillary lost in 2016.

    1. According to Democrats it wasn’t their leadership failures that cost them huge in the 2016 election, it was Putin’s fault.

    2. @benny pitt Democrats always have a fucking excuse to avoid taking responsibility that America has rejected them and will reject them again in 2020.

  2. How do we end slavery and racism? Stop talking about it!!!!

    Anyone alive in America now didn’t own slaves or was a slave. This was an evil part of our history and we need to move on as a nation. Reparations is a joke. So if the government throws a black man a couple G’s, were all even now? You then forgive the action of enslaving your forefathers. Give me a break…

    1. Burgess Owens testimony was a joke. Go study America’s history with slavery and Jim Crow. America has never made amends to African American’s yet they’ve been contributing to the wealth and innovation of this country for 400 years to be exact.

  3. Republicans just looovveee to trot out the Constitution when it helps them. Otherwise they forget all about it.

  4. WHO GIVES A DAMN ABOUT WHAT MITCH McCONNELL HAS TO SAY ABOUT “HEBREW ISRAELITES REPARATIONS.”
