From: “The House Judiciary Subcommittee on Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties bill entitled “Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act” comes this red herring argument.

“As a result of the historic and continued discrimination, African-Americans continue to suffer debilitating economic, educational, and health hardships including but not limited to having nearly 1,000,000 black people incarcerated; an unemployment rate more than twice the current white unemployment rate; and an average of less than 1⁄16 of the wealth of white families, a disparity which has worsened, not improved over time.”

It’s true and correct but it draws the wrong conclusion.  The tactic is being used to force “Reparations from white people”. That’s clearly a gross mis-connection and the hearings and the bill may backfire. It may have the opposite effect, the call for repayment of the money taken from white people.
