Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee told reporters this week that President Joe Biden is “committed” to the concept of setting up a commission to examine issuing reparations to black Americans for slavery.
On Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee approved Jackson Lee’s measure H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act. The legislation, introduced in January, would “examine slavery and discrimination in the colonies and the United States from 1619 to the present and recommend appropriate remedies,” according to a summary of the bill.
Of course, the United States didn’t exist in 1619, which is just one of the many false premises behind the idea of slavery reparations
Jackson Lee, who has been a prime mover in the push for reparations, tweeted that President Biden is “committed to this concept” and expressed her gratitude.
Biden may be committed to it, and race hustlers like Jackson Lee and the Marxist Black Lives Matter organization may be committed to it, but this, like the Democrat assault on the Second Amendment, is an issue that will tear Americans apart.
