Response: I love it thank you Rev. Ozie Lee Hall Jr. for this message.
I believe the Black community must become self-sufficient. However, the mathematical reality is that Black people are owed a debt. Any reasonable analysis of the uncompensated contributions that Blacks have made to this nation indicate that every single Black American man, woman, and child (descendants of slaves) in equity is owed more than $1 million each. If this nation had to pay Black people what we are actually owed, this nation would be bankrupt. Jeff, for you to support cuts in unemployment benefits for Blacks, for you to support denying Blacks access to health care, for you to support cuts in aid to Black families, and you to support cuts in education funds for Black children and adults makes your statements that you support reparations for Black people sound ludacris. The Conservative and Republican agenda and actions directly attack the Black community. When you say "you welcome the change they’re bringing," the change they bring is Anti-Black. Therefore, there is an inconsistency when you say you support reparations but would support denying Black people basic subsistence. Do the analysis Jeff. I have to view this as you are just making wild statements to be controversial?
