    Reparations? For what? Not for slavery, which is generations in the past; yet, when considering Jim Crow and the efforts by the conservatives to whine loudly about Affirmative Action, which not only benefited people of color, but women too, there is some merit in considering all those who suffered, and continue to suffer hate and fear, ought to receive some consideration.

    However, if the consideration is a check, I would oppose that. But let's be clear, the glass ceiling has been broken through at the last election, and the H. or Rep. has a duty to keep their promises and pass legislation to create training for 21st century jobs, increase the minimum wage, close the wages gap, and expose the hate and fear promulgated by the election of trump.

    Equal Rights and equal opportunities are the goal, and the Golden Rule is not now and never has been the goal of communism or fascism.

    Truthfully you do not want equal rights and that is proven all the time.

    What you want is white males to sit at the back of the bus while you drive society over a cliff and then blame the white male for not stopping you.

    Also slavery still exists today, so let not pretend because our nation fought a war that slavery is dead.

    Democrats won't tackle reparations, they dangle reparations out there to keep blacks voting for Democrats.

    Just like Immigration Reform, and the fact they only care when they are out of power...

    My sons are white males, my grandsons are white males and I'm a white male. My wife is a white female and only our dog, border collie, is black and white.

    Thanks for your opinion, and yes, some opinions are fallacious, and it seems most of yours are too.

    Why don't you focus on issues you know something about, and not echo the bullshit you must have learned from limbaugh or hannity or trump?

    Really? Do you think all blacks vote for Democrats, and not Republicans, because black people want free things?

    That's not true, but it's a meme, aka, a BIG LIE as are most talking points from the right.
