Reparations

So Booker introduced Senate bill to study slavery reparations.

Fellow democrats/presidential candidates support this.

What do you all think, will this help the democrats or not in 2020?

if it's an apology, great - if it's money or tax credit no.

It's the left digging themselves even deeper into the pit they now wallow in. Dig baby, dig.

Apologies were done, time for the left and blacks with their hands out to move the F on.

I just don't get it, can they not see these initiatives will hurt them in 2020?

It's odd...

Apologize to whom, exactly?
Pay/give to whom, exactly?

Study? That's what Beta said too.
Speaking of digging. Beta called Netanyahu a racist. Lol. He must have cheated his way through math because he sure as hell can't count.

Bottom line is summed up best by good ol Obama the other day.
"Democrats are in a circular firing squad."

He's right, for once.

They're drowning politically and desperate to take the White House and desperately trying to grab on to a smallish group of voters while alienating a whole bunch more that likely would have voted for them. They think they're grabbing life vests but they're really latching onto anchors.

Absolutely moronic move.

This is the odd part, I'd love to see the current stats on how many voters overall support this idea of financial reparations.

I read somewhere the tag would be 500 billion...

Given that a majority of the cost would be covered by white males I wouldn't hold your breath...

Really no one in charge in the Democratic Party. They have bunches of people, each promoting themselves at the EXPENSE of the Party. Lets hope tey keep utilizing the circular firing squad for another 1 1/2 years.

We have this same shit going on in Australia with our indigenous population.

It's fucking BS in my opinion. I'm Australian, they're Australian. Their disadvantage is a result of their geographic location and parental influence (inter-generational poverty).

If you keep holding me responsible for something my great grandfather might've done to your great grandfather, we'll end up like Israel and Palestine - fighting over a worthless piece of land that's been disputed for centuries.
