(Patriot Insider) – Reparations talks have always been the carrot Democrats have dangled in front of black communities to ensure their continued support. So long as they promise to get the ball rolling on reparations if elected, black communities support them.
Of course, it hasn’t happened yet and it always just remains talk. Democrats don’t actually care about black communities and they certainly don’t ever care to pay any actual reparations.
Oregon lawmakers, however, seem to be walking the walk. Democrats in the state have introduced a piece of legislation that would make good on Democrat promises to pay reparations.
We aren’t talking just a little chunk of change either. Oregon Dems plan to pay out $123,000 in reparations to any individual who can prove they are descendants of American slaves and who have “identified as African-American” on legal documents for at least 10 years.
For those who meet the requirements, the $123,000 would be paid out over the course of their lives with interest.
According to the text of the bill, the state Department of Revenue will be directed to establish a reparations payment program to black Oregonians “who can demonstrate heritage in slavery.” The application deadline will be Dec. 31, 2022 and those who apply must have lived in the state for at least two years prior to the deadline.
According to the Daily Wire, the lifespan of the average black man is 75 years, if a 30-year-old black man applies for reparations from the program he would receive a yearly payment of around $2,733 from the Oregonian government.
With just a 5% interest rate on the reparations money, that amount could go up to $2,870 per year.
State Republicans fear that this plan, which could increase state spending by $11.8 trillion, will only result in increased taxes and an influx of people looking to move to the state to get in on a second round of reparations, which would just further burden Oregonian taxpayers.
Meanwhile, the Biden administration has signaled that they plan on getting serious about reparations. According to White House adviser Cedric Richmond, Biden and his fraudulent regime support reparations and free college tuition to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
“We have to start breaking down systemic racism and barriers that have held people of color back and especially African-Americans who were enslaved,” Richmond said in an interview with Axios. “We have to do stuff now to improve the plight, status, future, and empowerment of Black people all around the country.”
The Daily Wire surmises that while the national timeline for reparations remains unclear, the Biden administration is likely planning to enact reparations “under the guise of education laws” with the hopes of also making community colleges free to all Americans.
At this point there should be no talks of reparations as the US continues to rack up trillions upon trillions in national debt related to the COVID-19 ordeal.
Democrats have no concern whatsoever for the national debt. So long as it’s not their problem right now, they’ll just keep spending and spending. This country is in a lot of trouble.
