Apparently nothing...that shyt still not getting studied.

Even to study it we need Congress to agree. It's not looking good. We gotta get them on board or get them out.

Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, the Judiciary Committee's top Republican, argued that because the committee's members would be appointed by the president, the House speaker and the Senate pro tempore, who are currently all Democrats, the commission would obviously come to a conclusion in support of reparations.

"Spend $20 million for a commission that's already decided to take money from people who were never involved in the evil of slavery and give it to people who were never subject to the evil of slavery," Jordan said during the hearing on the bill. "That's what Democrats on the Judiciary Committee are doing."

Rep. Burgess Owens of Utah, one of two Black Republicans currently serving in the House, said that the concept of reparations is "divisive."

"Reparation where you take people's money that they've earned — it's punishment, it's theft, it's judgement," he said in the hearing. "It's saying that because of your skin color, you owe me. That is not the American way. We're not racist people. This American country is based on meritocracy."

Like around 2019 The members of The ADOS movement questioned members of Congress on camera and called office directly to see if they support House Resolution Bill 40 Study for Reparations for slavery. This increased the number of Congress members signing the bill. Also ADOS movement called out NCOBRA, which is the reparations organization that has been around since the 90s but NCOBRA was stagnant in getting momentum for reparations. NCOBRA then got more involved and directly asked certain Congress members to the bill.



But ADOS then advocated for changes and edits to the bad parts of the bill. The bad parts of the bill gives funding to members doing the study. The ADOS movement opposed A pay day for members on the HR40 Bill study committee.
It is also admirable that if ADOS movement leaders were chosen to be on the study commission they ALSO DO NOT WANT TO ACCEPT PAYMENT OR MONEY OR SALARY ONLY THE BARE BASICS LIKE LODGING AND FOOD NOT A PAYOUTS LIKE NCOBRA SUPPORTS

ADOS cofounders Yvette Carnell and Antonio Moore want the members of the study only to be compensated for lodges and food expenses and a stipend but not hundreds of thousands in a payday to members and the organizations.

Also another part of the bill fails to limit reparations to only Black descndants of US slaves but opens it up to all Black Americans, even those who dodon't descend from US slaves( Nigerian Americans, Jamiacan American) etc.
The exclusivity is important in that it guards against challenges of race favoring and constitutionality.

You can’t continue to not care about foreign policy and have trillions & trillion$ wasted on corruption & then expect budget for what you seek.

Imagine a fiend owes you money but he keeps buying shyt & living beyond his means.
And you know about it but ignore it & keep asking for your money.

You have to care more about foreign policy.

Well damn :to:. Not a fan of this response. I understand she's a politician but damn! Especially when her response started off so strongly addressing the specific things that affected black people. Those specific atrocities deserve a specific response.
