Texas Votes To Back Reparations for Slavery : White Folk Everywhere Have A Collective Heart Attack

in today’s good news….

MadMan of the year.  We ain't mad at him

MadMan of the year. We ain’t mad at him

Someone stand up and give John Wiley Price, Texas’ ONLY Black commissioner a got-damn standing ovation.  He got the Dallas County Commissioners Court to back monetary reparations for  the descendants of slaves.

Wiley presented to the commissioner’s court the “Juneteenth Resolution” which stated “The United States of America is derelict in its promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to the African American people,” Price said. “Be it further resolved that the dereliction that has caused 400 years of significant… suffering to the descendants of those who have been enslaved Africans who built this country, should be satisfied with monetary and substantial reparations to same.”

The other white commissioners, hearing only that Wiley was talking about “Black stuff regarding something about slavery” barely paid attention, playing on computers, and goofing off.  When the resolution was read, the disinterested  lawmakers seconded the motion, making the resolution official.

imageYou can only imagine the craziness and back pedaling that resulted.  The Raw Story reports  that the white commissioners, realizing later what had just happened, had to save face and explain why the hell they weren’t paying attention at the same time.  One commissioner changed his vote to “abstain” while the others laughed it off and said it was only “ceremonial” and not to be taken seriously.

Here is my problem with all this.  We know white lawmakers do not want Black people to benefit from the legacy of slavery.  This is nothing new.  What bothers me is the back pedaling… the OBVIOUS back pedaling.  It is beyond insulting and degrading and an insult to the intelligence of Black people everywhere.

Shouts out to Commissioner Wiley for being the smartest man in the room.

  1. They ain’t want us to win….Read the second paragraph that my teacher’s didn’t talk about.

    14th Ammendment Section

    Section 4.

    The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.

    But neither the United States nor any state shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

  2. These white commission members where asleep at the wheel.Simply,they’ve heard this reparations rhetoric probably most of there lives.Black folks have been talking 40 acres and a mule for a 150 yrs.
    Bottom line,we have the resources to take control of our own destiny.Stop waiting for massa to throw some crums in our direction…

    • Don’t be fooled brother, this is definitely the way forward. Collection of a valid debt is nothing to be ashamed of. Those who benefitted from forced free labor should pay with interest. The descendent of the African slave is owed restitution from several nations. Besides the obvious benefit, the payment of this debt may be just what is needed as another step toward racial harmony, let them acknowledge the wrong that was done, and finally pay for it.

  3. Consider all of the many free land grab opportunities non-Black U S citizens had that Blacks of those times were not allowed bc of racial inequities. Consider all the free labor and derived benefits accrued to white citizens & decendents. Perhaps, Blacks should be awarded $2.00 medals for dumb-ass at-a-boy loyalty 👴🏾👰🏾👶🏽👴🏾👩🏽👨🏾

  4. Someone had to build the place white man was to lazy and boo hoo they had the power to do it go figure. We all have red blood and it seems only the black are complaining let them live their primitive lives put them back on the dirt of Africa there is still plenty of room there

    • Well if that is the case then, I would like to see America send us back to her motherland because it is way overdue. Don’t forget since the American dollar will be worthless pretty soon anyway. We do have what it takes to make things happen. We have the knowledge and capabilities to do the things that White Americans say that we don’t but they cannot stay out of African to save their lives and what to claim it as there home.
