Democrats are back again pushing “reparations” as a way to help American minorities. But not every black person is on board with their plan.
Herschel Walker is an NFL legend and outspoken patriot. He has defied the left again and again with his support of commonsense values.
So, when Walker heard about their latest push for reparations, he stood up and told them they’re going the wrong way.
From Daily Wire:
Former pro-football running back Herschel Walker spoke to a congressional hearing on Wednesday about the possibility of slavery reparations in the United States…
“We use black power to create white guilt. My approach is biblical: how can I ask my Heavenly Father to forgive me if I can’t forgive my brother?”
“Reparations, where does the money come from? Does it come from all the other races except the black taxpayers? Who is black? What percentage of black must you be to receive reparations?
Walker spoke before Congress, laying out the facts about reparations. He shared some pretty obvious problems with the idea—problems Democrats never seemed to think about.
The unprecedented plan would essentially tax non-black Americans and give that money (in one form or another) to black Americans.
The problem? How do you prove who is black and who isn’t? If this is a legitimate program, they’re going to need some factual way to prove someone’s race.
Walker pointed out that obvious problem, suggesting every black person might have to use a DNA testing site like “23andMe.” Could those results be properly trusted?
(You also have to ask, just because someone is of African descent doesn’t mean their ancestors were slaves in America. How do you prove that?)
He also pointed out (to people who probably never thought about this) the problem with deciding where the money came from. Do we tax Americans? If the money is going to black people, then we can’t tax them for it, right?
Then does the government tax everyone but black people? Does that mean white, Hispanic, Asian, and Americans from other descents have to pay into this thing?
Obviously, Democrats haven’t thought all this out. And I’m sure there are plenty of non-white Americans who are not at all eager to pay for this.
In the end, Walker dropped a bomb on Congress-revealing that this plan would create “white guilt,” which will never heal the wounds between Americans. Instead, Walker seeks a Biblical approach to forgiving those who wronged him.
Reparations are the opposite of that, a plan that would certainly divide white and black Americans in a way that might never be healed.
Hopefully, Congress will heed Walker’s advice.
