“It’s 2021; how are we to determine who gets reparations and who doesn’t?”
This question was asked by a young black woman who took her message of forgiveness to Tik Tok. She goes on to explain that reparations are not the answer.
The young lady quotes a pastor in Oklahoma who claimed “we cannot have true reconciliation and healing without reparations,” to which she says, “I don’t agree with that.”
“Forgiveness will turn an open wound into a scar.”

Americans are sharply divided on the issue of reparations. According to a 2020 Reuters poll:
Only one in 10 white respondents supports paying reparations, while half of all black respondents support it.
Our previous report on reparations:
Everybody loves free stuff. For decades, the Democrat Party has fine-tuned the art of promising freebies in exchange for votes. Today, as most Americans watched in horror, limousine liberals like Hollywood actor and multi-millionaire leftist Danny Glover (net worth $40 million) sat in front of Congress to demand black Americans receive financial compensation from American taxpayers because they may have had relatives who generations ago, were slaves.

As liberals attempt to push the idea of reparations for black Americans, most Americans are smart enough to see through their scheme to use taxpayer dollars as a way to gain votes from them in the upcoming 2020 election.
In April, a Fox News poll found that 60 percent of Americans oppose paying cash reparations to descendants of slaves, while just 32 percent support it. A Rasmussen poll in the same month found that just 21 percent of likely voters think taxpayers should pay reparations to black Americans who can prove they are descended from slaves.
Black Americans have taken part in a massive awakening since President Trump was elected in 2016. Trump had done what no other Republican before him had the courage to do; he’s pulled back the curtain on the self-serving Democrats and exposed the dirty tactics they’ve employed for decades to convince minorities to support them at the polls.
One person who hasn’t fallen for the Democrats’ dirty tricks is NFL Hall-of-Famer Burgess Owens. Today, during a reparations hearing, Burgess Owens slammed the Democrat Party and their embarrassing efforts.
Owens told the members of Congress how he feels about the Democrat Party he used to belong to, and how he feels about the proposed HR-40 bill that would study issuing reparations for black Americans: “I used to be a Democrat until I did my history and found out the misery that that party brought to my race.” Owens continued, “Let’s pay restitution. How about the Democratic Party pay for all the misery brought to my race.”

Wow, Burgess Owens just stunned everyone:
“I used to be a Democrat until I did my history and found out the misery that that party brought to my race… Let's pay restitution. How about the Democratic Party pay for all the misery brought to my race…" pic.twitter.com/ZXuwncFreV

Compare Owens’ testimony to Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX), who is arguably one of the dumbest members of Congress. Jackson-Lee is heading up the efforts to give black Americans an unearned, taxpayer-funded funded paycheck.
Here’s what Senator McConnell has to say about the Democrat scheme for votes.
The subject has been a hot-button issue for decades, with every indication it will rage on.
