Reparations for the Slave Owners’ Descendants?

Life is a Pleasant Puzzle

She-Said: Don, please explain to me what the deal is with Larry Elder. He was the top Republican candidate to replace Governor Newsom in our unsuccessful California recall attempt. This Black radio celebrity/lawyer ran on a plank advocating reparations for the descendants of slave owners! I didn’t think it was possible, but he makes Candice Owens look like a lightweight.  She is another “Sellout” Black conservative radio host.

He-Said: Sister you’re on point to be appalled by this unreasonable idea!

Did you know it was the Lincoln administration that established this precedent. It was a political move to placate the “Rebels” in the South.

Acclaimed scholar Dr. Tera W. Hunter, who is Professor of History and African American Studies at Princeton University, made some poignant analysis on this issue. She wrote the following in the N.Y. Times “On April 16, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed a bill emancipating enslaved people in Washington. In order to ease slave owners’ pain, the

District of Columbia Emancipation Act paid those loyal to the Union up to $300 for every enslaved person freed.”

Since legal precedent exists you have to pay those people! If you don’t agree with me, ask talk radio host Larry Elder!

She Said: I guess Elder missed the class on “Critical Race Theory” in law school? He also seems to have missed the fact that he’s likely descended from slaves! What sort of loon would rather his abusers get recompense than himself?

Honestly, the extent to which the Trumpian right wing is willing to grovel and debase itself just defies any logic. Is he that desperate to be included in the third of our population who now inhabit “Earth-Two”, as Rachel Maddow describes it? It would be ridiculous if it weren’t so dangerous.

Brother, this country is in trouble.

He-Said:  Nicole if you look up “Uncle Tom” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary you will see Mr. Elder’s picture. Definition: “A Watermelon Seed Spitting, Hennessy Drinking, Fried Chicken Eating, White Butt Kissing, Alabama Porch Monkey!”

Nicole, he gained nothing for shaming himself. Even Judas Iscariot got 30 pieces of silver for betraying Jesus Christ.

Let me add a point of clarification. Courts have historically changed precedent upon review later. For instance Brown vs. the Board of Education. We don’t have to capitulate. Stay “Woke” & STAND UP!!
