Mitch McConnell Not A Fan of Reparations

In Mitch McConnell’s salad days, when he only had a few chins. Tis a mystery why he is not a fan of reparations.

The House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties hearing yesterday—about establishing a committee to study slavery and whether reparations are due—was fascinating.

As a sonofalawyer, the question of whom is eligible for reparations is the part that I can imagine Republicans in shark skin suits would tear apart, before you even arrive at the discussion of what would be a fair settlement or how or in what form money would be distributed, let alone who would foot the bill. There are a thousand ways to Sunday that this can be delayed if not outright destroyed.

Speaking of destroying, it is not much of a surprise that amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell is not a fan of reparations!

“I don’t think reparations for something that happened 150 years ago for whom none of us currently living are responsible is a good idea.”

Writer Ta-Nehisi Coates brilliantly rebutted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell:

Coates called on Congress to “reject fair-weather patriotism, to say that a nation is both its credits and its debits,” and to create a commission to study ways the U.S. government can make amends for slavery and its legacy.

    If “reparations” ever come to pass, and McConnell is involved, it will likely look something like this:
    Government sends subsidy to business, to pay for good jobs to be provided to targeted (black) Americans.
    Business creates crappy jobs paying crappy wages and pockets the difference. Or leaves the jobs unfilled while bemoaning how no one wants them while keeping the money.

      This. ^^^ Definitely a one-time payment to businesses who engage in corporate malfeasance without once amending the actual antiquated laws and institutions that do not provide equal opportunities for minorities.
