Reparations for slavery have gone from the far-left wing of the Democrat party to the mainstream.
The resolution, co-sponsored by 107 Democrats, states that it would “establish a commission to study and consider a national apology and proposal for reparations for the institution of slavery.”
An apology and payment for something that no American alive today has experienced.
Schumer chimed in with a full-throated endorsement of the legislation, and in doing so, disgracefully painted America as a racist nation even today.
“Racism is the poison in America, it’s in the American bones, unfortunately,” Schumer said without evidence. “The legacy of slavery and Jim Crow is still with us.”
The Democrat legacy of fighting for slavery? The Democrat legacy of Jim Crow? That one?
Schumer, in his pandering desperation for the black vote, took a shot at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who, like most of America, opposes reparations.
“What McConnell said was just preposterous and that’s why I’m supporting this legislation,” Schumer told Axios. “In his actions as majority leader, he’s done nothing to combat bigotry.”

“When a significant part of America is held back, all of America is held back,” Schumer added, allowing he and his party’20s ridiculous white guilt to take a hold of him.
