    Kamala Harris Supports 'Some Type of' Slavery Reparations

    Kamala Harris Supports 'Some Type of' Slavery Reparations
    Justin Caruso
    3-3 minutes

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) said in an interview Monday she supports “some type of” reparations to black Americans for slavery.

    In an interview with the “Breakfast Club,” a radio show on New York City’s Power 105.1, host Charlamagne tha God asked Kamala Harris about reparations.

    She gave a lengthy answer, then when pushed on it, agreed with Charlamagne that she would support “some type of” reparations.

    “Where do you stand on some form of reparations for black people? Here you see Mayor De Blasio saying the marijuana economy could be a form of reparations. Marianne Williamson says black people should get a hundred billion in slave reparations–like, where do you stand on it?” Charlamagne asked.

    Harris responded:
    Well look, I think that we have got to address that again, it’s back to the inequities. There, through–look, America has a history of 200 years of slavery. We had Jim Crow. We had legal segregation in America for a very long time. The Voting Rights Act was only strong for 50 years and then they wiped it out with this United States Supreme Court in the Shelby decision, to the point that 22 states immediately thereafter put in place laws that one court found were crafted with surgical precision to have black people not be able to vote.”

    So we’ve got to recognize, back to that earlier point, people aren’t starting out on the same base, in terms of their ability to succeed and so we have got to recognize that and give people a lift up. And, there are a number of ways to do it. Part of my initiative again around the ‘Lift Act’ is that same point–you lifting people up who are making less than a hundred thousand dollars a year. What I want to do about rent is the same thing. What we need to do around education and understanding disparities, what we need to do around HBCUs. But we have a history of racism in America.
    Charlamagne asked again, “So you are for some type of reparations?”

    “Yes I am, yes I am,” Harris responded.

    Harris announced her 2020 campaign in January, kicking off the race by saying, “The American people deserve to have someone who is going to fight for them, who is going to see them, who will hear them, who will care about them and put them in front of self-interest.”

    Last week, she expressed support for the socialist Green New Deal introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

    Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can't give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody.

    Does that include the descendants of thousands of Scots and Irish who were forcibly brought to American and placed into indenture against their will?

    tell me why they deserve reparations

    Good. Then I must conclude that Harris is also in favor of giving Whites reparations for - in no particular order - electricity, internal combustion engines, refrigeration, modern medicine, architecture and civil engineering, modern navigation and thousands of other products of European intellect and civilization. Oh, and let's not forget that law degree that Harris holds. That wasn't the product of sub-Saharan African culture, either.

    Reparations only at the airport as they trade in their citizenship and are put on the next plane and permanently deported.

    The lives of all those Yankees who served, died or were wounded in the Civil War was not enough blood and "reparations" for her? The hardships and sacrifice of families and communities who lost fathers, sons, uncles, cousins, friends and neighbors amounts to naught?

    I’ll say it again, if not for their ancestors being imported many years ago, they would not be alive, or at least would still be in Africa. Be thankful for your very existence and STFU.

    I'm in favor of reparations in the form of free passage to Liberia, on the condition that they renounce their American citizenship, and agree to never return. It would be money well invested.

    Hummm….Yet.....

    https://www.politifact.com/californi...er-or-defende/

    Record on wrongful convictions
    In her op-ed, Bazelon said the most troubling part of Harris’ record was that she "fought tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct that included evidence tampering, false testimony and the suppression of crucial information by prosecutors."

    In one case cited by Bazelon, Harris’ AG’s office sought to block a defendant from leaving prison after two federal judges threw out his conviction of carrying a concealed knife. The reason cited for blocking his release, according to a news report from 2012, was that the man’s attorney had filed a petition seeking his release six years after he was legally required to do so, and because the office maintained evidence still pointed to the defendant’s guilt. Harris’ supporters have said she likely wasn’t directly involved in decisions to block the release of the defendants in question.

    "She was not personally involved in every case, and she has said she wished prosecutors under her had brought more cases to her attention," Harris’ campaign said in a written response. "Some of these cases never reached her desk personally. Some cases, once she was made aware, she intervened to change course. … But as she's said, she takes responsibility for everything that happened (at her agency) while she was AG."

    Lateefah Simon, an Oakland-based advocate for civil rights and racial justice, said in a letter published in The New York Times responding to Bazelon’s op-ed, that Harris’ record must be viewed through a wider lens.

    "For decades, Kamala Harris has fought to make our system more just. I give her credit and hope that others will look at the totality of her record of reform before jumping to conclusions," wrote Simon, who led the creation of the Back on Track program under under Harris at the San Francisco district attorney’s office.

    Kamala Harris office sought to keep inmates locked up so that California could use them for cheap labor

    by John Gage | February 11, 2019 05:38 PM

    Lawyers under the oversight of then-Attorney General of California Kamala Harris argued in 2014 against the release of nonviolent criminals because they wanted to keep them for cheap labor.

    “Extending 2-for-1 credits to all minimum custody inmates at this time would severely impact fire camp participation — a dangerous outcome while California is in the middle of a difficult fire season and severe drought,” lawyers from Harris’s office wrote in a filing.

    The attorney general arrived at that stance in reaction to a chain of events following a 2011 Supreme Court decision ruling that California’s prison overcrowding was in violation of the Constitution’s cruel and unusual punishment clause.

    In 2014, as overcrowding persisted, a three-judge panel in California ordered the state to make eligible for parole nonviolent prisoners with only two felonies that had served half their sentences. Harris’ lawyers argued early release would harm the prison’s labor program, which included its work program to help fight California’s wildfires. The judges rejected the argument.

    Criticism against Harris resurfaced after her announcement for president last month brought heightened scrutiny. In 2014, Harris told BuzzFeed News she was “shocked” to learn about what her lawyers were arguing in court.

    Harris’s presidential campaign reiterated her claims this week to the Daily Beast: “As she said at the time, Sen. Harris was shocked and troubled by the use of this argument. She looked into it and directed the department’s attorneys not to make that argument again.”

    I like to see them come up with a 165 year old former slave and they would have been 10 years old when slavery was abolished in 1865 with what was supposed to be the 14th amendment to the constitution! The constitution was subverted by attorneys holding office in DC as there already a 13th amendment to the constitution at that time.

    I do belive that deserve reparations and considerations to be made whole again. So with that in mind I am willing to pay a one time tax to ship their asses back to the countries that their ancestors came from on the condition that if they ever set foot in the US again they will be incarcerated till the end of their days.

    Here is an idea from a fevered imagination on reparations based on the premise that the right to citizenship in this here country has value.

    1. Every Black gets $100,000 in reparations based on his Blackness. A 100% Black gets the full amount, a 50% Black gets half. Anything below 50% is not considered Black.

    2. If they want to stay in the country, they must buy their citizenship back at the cost of the reparations given them

    3. If they want to keep the money, back to Africa from whence they came. They cannot go anywhere else because the very premise of reparations is that they were kidnapped from their native lands.

    I was cold sober when I thought this up but I am not sure about my meds.

    Troke, I like your ideas.

    But, another way to end the reparations hooie is to just stop. Stop ANY and EVERY form of assistance given to any black in America. EBT, welfare, SSI, veterans benefits, armed services retirement benefits, everything. If their kids are in school, cut off the free lunches. If their kids are in college, immediately stop ALL govt. assistance to that student in American schools.

    If all the payouts were to stop, the idea of reparations would stop immediately. Starvation would probably set in within 2 weeks or so.

    If they had to honestly fend for themselves the dindu population numbers would drop like a stone.

    Problem solved.

    I honestly think that ANYONE that was freed from slavery in 1865 should receive some compensation for the period they were actually enslaved. Anyone else needs to EARN their keep and other than that they need to "F" off.


    My ancestors were Jacobite Highlanders that were ultimately chased out of Scotland and came to North America. So do to the British OWE ME for that lost legacy?? "F" NO!! I'm glad that happened and that I and my immediate ancestors are now AMERICANS.



    I've been to Africa......IT SUCKS!! Every black-American should thank their lucky stars that their ancestors were kidnapped and brought to this country. Good, bad or indifferent they are FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR better off than the folks that were left behind in Africa.

    From your source (you REALLY should have posted this---it is PRICELESS):

    The prospect of a woman of Jamaican heritage occupying the White House must lead a curious nation to ask: how much of an influence did her early upbringing by her Jamaican father have on the formation of her character and current world view? In this open and revealing article Donald Harris reflects on the ‘Jamaicanness’ of his daughter Kamala.


    Reflections of a Jamaican Father
    By
    Donald J. Harris

    As a child growing up in Jamaica, I often heard it said, by my parents and family friends: “memba whe yu *** fram”. To this day, I continue to retain the deep social awareness and strong sense of identity which that grassroots Jamaican philosophy fed in me. As a father, I naturally sought to develop the same sensibility in my two daughters. Born and bred in America, Kamala was the first in line to have it planted. Maya came two years later and had the advantage of an older sibling as mentor. It is for them to say truthfully now, not me, what if anything of value they carried from that early experience into adulthood. My one big regret is that they did not come to know very well the two most influential women in my life: “Miss Chrishy” and “Miss Iris” (as everybody called them). This is, in many ways, a story about these women and the heritage they gave us.

    My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brown’s Town) and to my maternal grandmother Miss Iris (née Iris Finegan, farmer and educator, from Aenon Town and Inverness, ancestry unknown to me). The Harris name comes from my paternal grandfather Joseph Alexander Harris, land-owner and agricultural ‘produce’ exporter (mostly pimento or all-spice), who died in 1939 one year after I was born and is buried in the church yard of the magnificent Anglican Church which Hamilton Brown built in Brown’s Town

    Agreed..........

    Look everyone...........slavery in America involved ownership of Africans by about 8% of the White population of the colonies in the South..............so that means 92% of Whites were never "crackers".

    And those slaves came from Jewish and Islamic slave traders who used their boats to get those slaves here..................

    and those slave traders got those Africans from other African tribes who took them as slaves...

    So just who is really responsible for reparations?

    Looks to me like the root of the slave trade started with their own race..............and good like trying to get reparations from them.

    Furthermore........would any Africans in America had rather their ancestors didn't get on that slave boat and remained in Africa?

    Odds are they would have never been born because their ancestors would have been worked to death or eventually killed by the Africans who enslaved them.....or ended up being eaten by them.

    Also, a war between states saw over 600,000 soldiers die in part due the eradication of slavery.........

    and we spend 40 billion dollars a year in social programs in attempt to keep up to 80% of Black houses in this country fiscally solvent.

    They are 12-14% of the US population and use up 40% of all social/welfare programs.............

    Now Camel face........you want to take about reparations?

    Yeah lets talk bitch!

    I swear the democratic (socialist) party these days look for Brown and Black mentally challenged candidates (make that puppets) to run for office these days........

    (Sorry for the rant Dennis but you got me going this morning with a spot on statement I fully concur with)

    Kamala Harris is not American at all.

    Her parents (a jamaican man and an indian woman) were here on student visas when she was born.

    She was raised mostly in Canada and India, as a hindu.

    Screw her. She is less American than even Barak Hussein.

    We are not voting our way out of this. She is the result of the legal immigration boomer civnats love so much.

    They come here legally and they still ****ing hate us.

    She has to go back too.
