If you're going to report on this topic, you have to go to the source.
Under the reparations section, they're demanding several items.
" Reparations for the systemic denial of access to high quality educational opportunities in the form of full and free access for all Black
people (including undocumented and currently and formerly incarcerated people) to lifetime education including: free access and open admissions to
public community colleges and universities, technical education (technology, trade and agricultural), educational support programs, retroactive
forgiveness of student loans, and support for lifetime learning programs. Reparations for the continued divestment from, discrimination toward and
exploitation of our communities in the form of a guaranteed minimum livable income for all Black people, with clearly articulated corporate
regulations. Reparations for the wealth extracted from our communities through environmental racism, slavery, food apartheid, housing
discrimination and racialized capitalism in the form of corporate and government reparations focused on healing ongoing physical and mental trauma,
and ensuring our access and control of food sources, housing and land. Reparations for the cultural and educational exploitation, erasure, and
extraction of our communities in the form of mandated public school curriculums that critically examine the political, economic, and social impacts of
colonialism and slavery, and funding to support, build, preserve, and restore cultural assets and sacred sites to ensure the recognition and honoring
of our collective struggles and triumphs. Legislation at the federal and state level that requires the United States to acknowledge the lasting
impacts of slavery, establish and execute a plan to address those impacts. This includes the immediate passage of H.R.40, the “Commission to Study
Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act” or subsequent versions which call for reparations remedies.
What I find interesting about this is, if you think it through, that among their demands is free college education for lifetime for all black people
and free minimum income for all black people. So for example, if you follow the links you find, under guaranteed minimum income:
"A Universal Basic Income (UBI) provides an unconditional and guaranteed livable income that would meet basic human needs while providing a floor
of economic security. UBI would eliminate absolute poverty, ensuring economic security for all by mandating an income floor covering basic needs.
Unlike most social welfare and social insurance programs, it is not means tested nor does it have any work requirements."
Now, that's all well and good and quite interesting, but here's the deal.
Free Education for Black people: So...........Asian and Hispanic students entering or trying to enter college will have to pay full tuition, but
Black people...........get their education for free? I have to wonder how the Asian and Hispanic students are going to feel about that.
The a Universal Basic Income for all Black people? How will that be funded? Well of course, the Government is going to pay for that. They claim it
would come from savings on incarceration costs and such, but still.......we're talking about a HUGE monetary outlay that would probably cripple and
hobble the economy for decades!
But wait! Obviously taxes will have to be raised to pay for this. Why should Asian and Hispanics and the Governments all new favored immigrant
class, MUSLIMS, have to pay for this? Should the sainted Syrian refugees have to pay for this?
Fascinating, because I suspect this could well go viral! This could be the cause celebre for the fall and for the SJW types and the University
students! And of course, when the talking heads on the MSM pick this up, it'll be pointed out that only EVIL RACISTS would be against this!
Bwahahahaha, America................you are SO screwed!
