Obama fully supports the United Nations Declaration for the Rights of Indigenous People, so he will push for Americans to pay slave reparations as a way to satisfy the treaty.
This unprecedented move was revealed by Fox Business News host Charles Payne during Thursday’s episode of Making Money.
“The news is a glimpse of much bigger news that is going to come from the White House, next year, I’m leaning towards,” Payne said, after talking about news in Chicago. “I think that there’s going to be an official apology from the White House to slavery in America and then a major push to get cash, and I’m talking lots of cash.”
“Many including those closest to President Obama will push him to make this happen,” Payne predicted, according to Mediaite. “I actually think it would be a major mistake. Instead, Obama should really discuss and focus on all of the progress we have made and how all Americans need to move forward for better days for all of our kids.”
A panel of guests joined Payne, and seemed to share his views.
“Sure, slavery was a horrible thing that happened, but this is not going to help race relations in the United States today,” Tea Party News Network’s Scottie Nell Hughes said. “It would be different if presidents today were affected themselves by something that happened back in the 1800s, but unfortunately, now all its going to do is cause more tension among the races.”
While Obama has claimed in the past that he is not in favor of reparations for slavery, he did favor giving black farmers $1.25 billion in reparations for alleged racial discrimination suffered under Department of Agriculture loan programs.
