    Not true lady .Cut the check. Those negros don’t speak for Real Black Americans. We are getting money 💰 and that’s just to start. We don’t want you all to try and throw a bone 🦴 out and try to give us a holiday. We can make and select our own holidays. We don’t care what Mexicans, Latinos, Black immigrants, White immigrants, etc or anyone else thinks about what is due to Black Americans . Doesn’t matter.

    Congress, CBS and Hollyhood..... great partners in honesty and reality.
    If lies, stupidity and fantasy were gasoline.... it would be free.
    Come on CBS, support good people...quit taking Soros, Clinton and cartel's all the same.
    you, cnn and the like are the "homeless problem of news"

    The Democrats , the party of Slavery and Jim Crow including the so call Civil Rights movement and now the Reparations ploy just to again , get the Black Vote. Don't fall for this one , as soon as the election is over this too will fade away without any results to better the lives of anyone.

    None of these selout bootlicks represent Negroes.They're somply agents of white supremacy.
    Too many sellouts are paraded 9n front of cameras.
    Talk to grass root Negroes.These clowns aren't the grassroots Negroes that brought reparations back into discussion,so they shouldn't be out front for Negroes.
    Not one of them is respected by the grassroots,not one.

    Talking about talking about reparations,what a joke..

    Black people PLEASE stop requesting of them a proper humanity that they've NEVER been able to be accountable for.

    Did they mention the population post slavery was less than 10% of what it is now? The whole notion of it is so backward, totally absurd. But, the truth of the matter is worse.

    Black people aren't that stupid.
    If you want to spend money, spend it on the inner-cities in this country, and help them out.

    So if it’s been 12 years that means it was never discussed during Obama’s era?

    Democrats should pony up then since it was their own party. 700k white Union army soldiers died freeing the slaves but these idiots want their descendants to pay? No logic
