Feb 6 - Dem. Presidential Candidate Calls for $100B in Slavery Reparations
 

 

Marianne Williamson, a best-selling author. spiritual teacher and activist, announced her bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination on Monday. On Thursday, she sat down on CNN’s New Day, where she said the United States needs to pay African-Americans reparations for slavery.

“We need a moral and spiritual awakening in the country,” the candidate stated. “Nothing short of that is adequate to really fundamentally change the patterns of our political dysfunction.”

Her platform includes proposal for free public college, universal health care, Medicare for all, a green new deal and $10 billion per year for slavery reparations to be paid over the course of a decade.

“I believe $100 billion given to a council to apply this money to economic projects and educational projects of renewal for that population is simply a debt to be paid,” Williamson said.

Watch the full interview below to hear what she believes to be the “deeper truths” about what has failed the American people.

I'm all for it in terms of education and property ownership. Giving money directly to people will just have it right back in the system with no gains. It should be used as a means to put black people on equal footing. But honestly $100B is nowhere near enough. How can you honestly calculate the financial gains this country has benefitted from due to slave labor?

That’s a solid number to start with.

The jealousy would be something fierce.

Native Americans get a personal cut. And them Jewish people as well. Plus the Japanese ones

Some type of dna standard is all that should be needed.

I'd rather them give us a few states let us govern our own.

The way I see it were so outnumbered and disrespected in this country well never be looked at as equal

they gave israel to the white jews they should give us everything from north carolina to Florida at the least, slave states should be ours

Natives don't get as much as people think and to get full benefits is extremely tough in some cases. An older cousin of mine had to wait 30 years and she was like 3/4 Narragansett native. Since she wasn't raised in the tribe they had to do extensive checks to prove she was of that tribe. Even then they don't get anything. They're the poorest and worst off people in this country for a reason.

But I think the reason why they don't speak of reparations is because if they were to give full reparations it would bankrupt the country. Plus there's a huge subset of people that would most likely go to war over it.

$100 billion is a good down payment. How will they pay out the remaining 95%? That takes care of the slavery pre-1900s.


... since legislated slavery continues with the prison system, gonna need another pay out for post 1900s slavery.

$3.5 trillion for black people in america should be good enough. The hand america played with respect to haiti, that's a separate pay-out. Native indians, that's a separate pay out. $10 trillion should cover it.

The people should directly receive the money. I don't trust middle men on anything like this. There are many black people who will miss out if the this money goes to middlemen to divide amongst their favored institutions

We deserve way more than $100B, but we can negotiate that.

Call it pandering, call it a russian trap to split the black vote so Cheeto can win, call it impossible to achieve; i really don't care. This conversation needs to be had on a mainstream & serious level. Our ancestors deserve it.

n*ggas clearly don’t realize the math. 37 million African Americans in the US. 10 billion means $2700 for each person. Your tax refund will be higher than that next month. Number needs to be in the hundreds of trillions to even come close to paying the amount due to blacks after you account for interest and inflation. One day we will get that bag though.
