Instead of solving problems for Americans, Democrats in Congress will be holding a hearing about slavery reparations featuring Hollywood stars and race-baiting social justice authors to create further divisions among the people.
The House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties will hold the hearing next Wednesday with actor Danny Glover and author Ta-Nehisi Coates giving testimony.
The purpose of the hearings is supposedly “to examine, through open and constructive discourse, the legacy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, its continuing impact on the community and the path to restorative justice.”
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) is leading the charge, proposing a resolution calling for a study of reparations that was previously championed by now-retired Democratic Rep. John Conyers (D-MI).
Newly-elected Democrats, the radicalized women of color whose voices will not be silenced, are coming out in favor of a race-based handouts program.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), the foul-mouthed Muslim pushing to impeach President Donald Trump, is working on a reparations bill, according to a post she made on Twitter last year.
I am on it. I would like to ask the incredible Rep. Maxine Waters or John Lewis if they would be introducing HR40 to give it the kind of weight it deserves. No matter, I am willing to.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-MI) is taking it a step further, arguing that Hispanic people ought to get reparations as well because of the economic injustice that white people are responsible for perpetrating upon all people of color.
“People think reparations is reparations for slavery, but really, economically speaking, reparations are for the damage done by the New Deal and redlining because that is where we saw a compounding of the existing inequity from the legacy of slavery, where we drew red lines around black communities,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“We said white communities will get home loans and they will get access to the basic bedrock of wealth in America and this will be your heirloom and we gave white America the heirloom that appreciated overtime — that people still benefit from today and we did not give to African-American and Mexican communities, Puerto Rican communities,” she added.
As Trump focuses on his agenda of jobs, trade and national security heading into 2020, the Democrats are increasingly embracing the extreme Left and stoking racial tensions before next year’s presidential election.
Democrat Black Farmers Bill Would Give Away $8 Billion of Land Yearly in Reparations Program
South Africa-style land redistribution?
Democrat Senators are touting new legislation that would purchase national farmland and give it away to Black Americans for free.
Democrats Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Elizabeth Warren are sponsoring the the Justice for Black Farmers Act, which seems likely to be the most wide-ranging affirmative action program ever enacted if it’s signed into law. It’s not inaccurate to call the bill a reparations program.

The law establishes preferences for Black Americans within Department of Agriculture policy. Blacks would be granted free land purchased by the federal government, in total increments that appear to add up to $8 billion a year.
An undersecretary of a USDA “Equitable Land Access Service” would be entrusted with purchasing(using taxpayer funds) and redistributing land. The reparation bill appropriates for a massive 20,000 grants annually over ten years, adding up to a total redistribution package of $80 billion.
The under-secretary would be commissioned to “(1) purchase from willing sellers, at a price not greater than fair market value, available agricultural land in the United States; and (2) subject to section 205, convey grants of that land to eligible Black individuals at no cost to the eligible Black individuals.”
If the bill redistributes 160 acres per grant, it would ultimately end up transferring 1.6% of the total land in the continental United States for free.
Democrats cite a decline in the numbers of black farmers since the 1920’s as an impetus for the bill, pointing out that there were 1 million black farmers in 1920 and 50,000 today. Such logic ignores that the number of American farmers broadly has declined sharply as the United States transitioned to an industrial economy, and that millions of Black Americans who worked under poor conditions as sharecroppers in the American South have long since moved to northern cities.
The bill is somewhat similar to South African racial land redistribution policies, which differ primarily in that they forcibly nationalized land owned by Afrikaner farmers and redistributed them to South African Blacks. South Africa’s land reforms in the name of “equity” have proven to generally be a failure, with novel farmers unable to utilize the land they’ve been gifted in a manner beneficial to society. South Africa has transitioned from a bountiful agricultural society known as the “bread basket of Africa” to a net food importer, with experts pointing to arbitrary land redistribution as a factor in doing so.
