Democrat Oregon State Senators Introduce Reparations Bill To Pay Black Residents $123,000

(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.

  1. Nothing like opening a pandora’s box. Every black will be going there to collect their share and then relocate to the next state that is dumb enough to do it and so on and so on and so on. All blacks consider themselves descendants of slaves when it comes to getting money. You will have Haitians, Jamaicans, and blacks from all over the world coming in a declaring they are descendants of slaves. It will be hilarious to watch – like a bunch of ants looking for food.

    • Leave it to Biden and the Democrats to decide to give reparations to blacks who have never suffered ONE DAY OF SLAVERY IN THEIR WHOLE LIVES but want money because an ancestor of theirs 150 years ago was a slave. GIVE ME A FKNG BREAK! This country has gone to he//!

  2. This is nuts! The Democrats want to give reparations to people who never were slaves and expect people who never owned slaves to pay the bill.

  3. Very interesting, Oregon was admitted into the United Sates as a “Free State” on February 14th, 1859 and the Civil War started on April 12, 1861. The Oregon State Constitution when admitted as a state prohibited Black families from residing in the state. So why are they considering paying reparations?

  4. Why has the Democrat Party been allowed to keep their party name? The are the party that supported slavery and fought a war against the United States to keep slavery legal. The first Republican President won that war against the Democrat Party, ending the legalization of slavery. But that didn’t stop the Democrat Party. Where ever they won local government elections, they passed laws discriminating against Black people. But even then, the first 35 Blacks ever to win election to Congress were Republicans. That caused the local Democrat leaders to create other means to attack Blacks like the Ku Klux Klan. The KKK murdered Blacks causing fear to the extent many stopped voting to protect themselves and their families.That was followed by more Democrats getting elected locally which then passed local laws discriminating against Blacks, prohibiting them from eating in the same restaurants as white, or drinking from water fountains that whites drink from, or use public bathrooms that whites used, or going to the same schools whites go to, etc., etc., etc. This all came to an end in the mid 1960s when Congress passed a law outlawing such local laws. More Republicans voted for that law than Democrats. So why are Democrats allowed to keep their pro-slavery name when so many people are demanding statures of Lincoln be torn down and schools named after him be changed?

  5. This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard of. Even if a person is a decedent of slaves why should that entitle them to money?? There has been no slavery in America since it was abolished by Abraham Lincoln.No one living today has ever been exposed to the actions associated with being a slave; to the contrary this country has made many changes to how people of color are accepted and treated today. Wake Up!! racism in America is not what the media would have us believe. In general interracial marriage and the like are readily accepted in our country. Racism is just an excuse used by some for their failure!!

  6. Oregon has the dumbest Democrat Legislators since I was old enough to pay attention “I’m 73”! We pay almost all the taxes, so they can turn around and give it all to the Blacks. And unfortunately we have to many looney liberals to throw them out.

  7. How about adding American Indians to the list. They they were treated very badly. And what about the Chinese that were used as slave labor to build the railroads and my goodness gay people are still persecuted and women were treated like property… I think I’m up to in excess of $50 trillion now but what the heck just print more money!!
