Obama Channels Wright– Wants Reparations For African-AmeriKKKans
He’ll have to add a few more billion to his already extravagant socialist agenda.
Democratic Candidate Barack Obama told a Chicago audience on Sunday the he believes in reparations “not just in words but in deeds.”
The Star Bulletin and Drudge reported:
“There’s no doubt that when it comes to our treatment of Native Americans as well as other persons of color in this country, we’ve got some very sad and difficult things to account for,” Obama told hundreds of attendees of UNITY ’08, a convention of four minority journalism associations.
The Hawaii-born senator, who has told local reporters that he supports the federal recognition bill for native Hawaiians drafted by U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka, noted other ethnic groups but did not mention native Hawaiians when answering a question about his thoughts on a formal U.S. apology to American Indians.
“I personally would want to see our tragic history, or the tragic elements of our history, acknowledged,” the Democratic presidential hopeful said.
“I consistently believe that when it comes to whether it’s Native Americans or African-American issues or reparations, the most important thing for the U.S. government to do is not just offer words, but offer deeds.”
Hopefully, he will add Irish-Americans to that growing list of abused Americans.
We can always hope!
Karl at Protein Wisdom has other thoughts on Obama’s reparation’s talk.
But, it should be noted that Obama did not rule them out.
UPDATE: The Pelosi House issued an apology yesterday for slavery opening the door for reparations.
