WND Exclusive – The Reparations Movement: Alive and Absurd

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The reparations movement for leftist blacks in America may have just hit the jackpot. All this time they have been trying to vilify the right and turn the government to their cause, and for decades they have essentially missed the mark.

What is the Reparations Movement?

Well, according to the website, “Reparations Movement for Justice,” the movement entails, “Restoration, Restitution and Reparation. This is for Money, Gold, and Land Owed to African Americans (The Freedman Bureau Bill: 400 Years of Back pay).”

Is that back pay with or without interest, and would it be adjusted for inflation? Just questions that need to be answered.

Oops, I guess I found my answer: “The demand from Congress is $1M in gold as back pay with investment interest from Jan. 1, 1863, to present time.” That’s a lot of scratch. Just adjusting for inflation and not taking into account investment income, $1 million back then would be worth close to $29 million today.

The Movement also demands, “$21B per year ongoing. $3.2B will go directly to member churches. 10-million jobs will be created within a 7-14 year period, and Housing, Education and Community initiatives will also be supported.”

For decades this has been a pipe dream. But there appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel, and it came by way of a black political vlogger named Bryan Sharpe, aka “Hotep Jesus,” who strolled into an ultra-liberal Starbucks (they’re all ultra-liberal) and demanded free coffee, as reparations for centuries of slavery. And he received it. Whether his ancestors were slaves or not is, I suppose, immaterial.
He also invited other blacks to do the same, as part of what he calls “#StarbucksChallenge.
