United Nations Decides America Owes Black People The Unthinkable … We cannot believe their words!

By

A 2016 report by a U.N.-affiliated group found that the United States’s history of slavery and racial segregation warrants reparations for African Americans.

The United Nations’ Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent concluded that “the legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the United States remains a serious challenge, as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent.”

Adam Carolla’s Speech To Congress About ‘Safe Spaces’:

“Past injustices and crimes against African Americans need to be addressed with reparatory justice,” the group declared in a statement.

This was one of Obama’s dream! Let’s wait for Trump’s answer!

I’m so glad we have a president that cares about America first!

Many legal experts point to the fact that slavery was not illegal in the United States prior to the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution (ratified in 1865). Thus, there is no legal foundation for compensating the descendants of slaves for the crime against their ancestors when, in strictly legal terms, no crime was committed. Chattel slavery is now considered by the overwhelming majority in the United States to be highly immoral, though it was perfectly legal at the time.

Other legal experts point to the fact that the current U.S. government did not exist prior to June 21, 1788 when the United States Constitution was ratified. Therefore, they say the U.S. government inherited the institution of slavery, and cannot be held legally liable for the enslavement of Africans by Europeans prior to that time. Figuring out who was enslaved by whom in order to fairly apply reparations from the U.S. government only to those who were enslaved under U.S. laws, would be an impossible task.

Another argument against reparations (though this is not a legal argument) is that few black Americans are of “pure” African blood due to mixed-race marriages between blacks and other ethnicities.

Anti-reparations advocates argue reparations payments based on race alone would be perceived by nearly everyone as a monstrous injustice, embittering many, and inevitably setting back race relations. In this view, apologetic feelings some whites may hold because of slavery and past civil rights injustices would, to a significant extent, be replaced by anger
