Bernie Sanders on 'The Breakfast Club' is a 'no' on slavery reparations


https://news.yahoo.com/bernie-sanders-makes-an-appeal-to-black-voters-but-says-no-to-reparations-201059505.html
But when asked by Charlamagne tha God if he would support “free cash payouts,” Sanders said, “No.”
“Do you mean a check to every African-American? Well, then, that means a check to every Native American that were wiped out when the settlers came,” he said, “I think the way we go forward is to build America together.”

So Bernie, why not support Reparations for African Americans, if its important to know where you came from?

As black people, we know our history and its nothing like what you describe as your humble beginnings. Likewise, we will never forget our ancestors worked as slaves without any pay or compensation :facepalm:




I know where I came from, and that is something I will never forget


Bernie Sanders <[email protected]>
To: Clyde



Clyde -

As we launch this campaign for president, you deserve to know where I come from – because family history heavily influences the values that we adopt as adults.

I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, in a three-and-a-half room rent-controlled apartment. My father was a paint salesman who worked hard his entire life, but never made much money. My mother raised my brother and me...


In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders

Of course not George, the two should be mutually exclusive, and your impracticality argument is so racist :facepalm:



Will the Democratic push for reparations benefit Trump?


...Then, when details, or the lack thereof, reveal the idea’s wild impracticality, the stampeders breezily say: Nevertheless, the idea is virtuous because it is “aspirational.” Which means that the Democratic Party is again assisting, as in 2016, Donald Trump’s electoral aspirations.

Presidential hopeful Castro isn't ruling out reparations


"If under the Constitution we compensate people because we take their property, why wouldn't you compensate people who actually were property," the former Obama-era housing secretary and ex-San Antonio mayor said on Sunday...
