Biden Administration to Act Unilaterally on Reparations

Mar 3, 2021 by

The Biden administration will begin crafting proposals on reparations – to include the issuance of taxpayer dollars – without the input of Congress, usurping the Separation of Powers and raiding the Treasury without congressional authority.

Cedric Richmond, a senior White House adviser, told reporters, “We don’t want to wait on a study. We’re going to start acting now.”

“We have to start breaking down systemic racism and barriers that have held people of color back and especially African Americans,” Richmond said. “We have to do stuff now.”

“If you start talking about free college tuition to [historically black colleges and universities] and you start talking about free community college in Title I and all of those things, I think that you are well on your way,” he said, noting that Congress has not established a timetable for their Reparations Commission where producing a study is concerned.

The subject of reparations is a contentious and divisive one. The matter presents a litany of questions including how recipients of any awards would qualify, what the award would be, who the benefactors would be, and how much it would cost.

Many who oppose reparations say that the lives surrendered to the cause of the US Civil War was the cost of freedom, while still others note that immigrants who arrived in the United States at the turn of the 20th Century and after owed nothing to those affected by slavery.

Still others point out that Affirmative Action – a program centric to the Black community – serves as the payment of billions of dollars to the ancestors of those who were affected by slavery.
