Legislation exploring whether Black Americans should receive restitution for slavery may soon get a huge boost, as a growing number of Democrats are hoping to move reparations this summer as another response to the death of George Floyd.

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) will huddle Wednesday to discuss their next legislative steps as Democrats seek to confront racial inequality following the killing of Floyd in police custody last month.

The article goes on to state the following:

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), the lead sponsor of the reparations bill, H.R. 40, said her proposal is attracting greater interest within the caucus since Floyd’s death, which sparked mass protests for racial justice around the country and the globe. She’s hoping to tap that energy to bring her bill to the floor for a historic vote before year’s end.

According to the report, Jackson said H.R. 40 provides the opportunity “to have the highest level of discussion about systemic racism and race” and that there is “no better time for H.R. 40 to be part of the national dialogue, and part of the national legislative response.”

“We are able to do it in a manner that is bringing people together,” Lee reportedly said, “that acknowledges that Black lives matter; and acknowledges that there has to be a response.”

  1. Statistically a black person is more likely to killed by a white person based on population. The biggest surprise is that actual statistics show that a black male is more likely to get killed by another black male. To say that George Floyd was murdered because he was black is not only not proven, but in no way shown him in any footage or audio. I really think the people in power are trying to provoke another Abraham Lincoln war. I did not come from money and when I did things wrong I got in trouble. I was harassed as a young teen and can’t even remember how many times I was pulled over and searched. I joined the military and straightens up and worked my butt off. I have failed and succeeded many times in life and family. It has nothing to do with my skin color. I have worked for blacks and with blacks. We are all God children and he will be my judge.

  2. Seriously, if this passes all us Irish have to start protesting too! The Irish Slaves were treated horribly!! Irish Lives Matter too!! ILM☘️

  3. I have news for these people, I have never owned slaves and no one in my family ever did either. I don’t owe them a dime. As a matter of fact my Irish ancestors were treated as badly as many slaves. Can I say they owe me reparations? They would laugh in my face.

  4. If the government gives reparations to anyone of any color this tax payer will be working for only cash paying customers and will never pay another dime in tax to anyone! I don’t owe any blacks anything for there’s not one black person living today that has ever been a slave to anyone but the Democratic Party. So if they want to pay them something then let them use democrats money.

  5. This happened over 200 250 years. So who is owed this money? Who will pay for this money? Let these wonderful politicians or people who want this to fork over the money. When it is their money. They will change their minds
