Now that Congressional Democrats are in control of the House talk of slavery reparations is back on Capitol Hill.
Today the House Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties held a hearing on H.R. 40, a bill that would create a commission to study and examine reparations proposals.
“Slavery was our nation’s original sin,” Representative Steve Cohen of Tennessee, the chair of the subcommittee said.
“Our Constitution protected it, embodying various compromises that gave disproportionate power to slave states.” Approving the bill would be “an important step in finding effective, long-term solutions to these problems, ones that can trace their origins to our nation’s shameful history of slavery and antiblack racism.”
Testifying in favor of the bill was actor Danny Glover.
Given his Hollywood status, Glover is sure to garner most of the attention from the adoring biased media.
That’s unfortunate. Because Coleman Hughes deserves coverage, and lots of it. He’s black, a Democrat, and opposes the measure. Watch his testimony, about five minutes. It’s so worth your time.
