Walter E. Williams on Slavery reparations

Walter E. Williams: Slavery reparationsMongo emphasis ...

The slavery reparations shakedown lobby is gearing up for attacks on American industry. They've failed in the courts and Congress, so they're going after weak-kneed CEOs.

At the NAACP's recent annual convention, Dennis C. Hayes, its interim president, said, 'Absolutely, we will be pursuing reparations from companies that have historical ties to slavery and engaging all parties to come to the table.' According to Mr. Hayes, 'Many of the problems we have now including poverty, disparities in health care and incarceration can be directly tied to slavery.'
Lemmeesee, so historically slavery ended January 1, 1864, and we owe reparations to the poor ancestors of those slaves? I would love to see a CEO of a major corporation have Mr. Hayes arrested and charged with extortion.

The recent phase of the reparations movement contains an interesting twist. Rev. Wayne Perryman, a conservative minister of Mount Calvary Christian Center Church of God in Christ in Seattle, Wash., has filed a lawsuit against the Democratic Party.

His lawsuit, filed in United States District Court in Seattle, charges 'that because of their racist past practices the Democratic Party should be required to pay African Americans Reparations.' Rev. Perryman's brief, citing abundant historical evidence, charges that the past racist policies and practices that were initiated against blacks by the Democratic Party -- were no different than the policies and practices that were initiated by the Nazi Party against the Jews.
Good on you Reverand. The Democratic party has enslaved thousands with their socialist policies. Go get em!
