Texas Unwittingly Voted That Blacks Deserve Reparations For Slavery

This is why reading BEFORE you sign something is important! Dallas County’s only black commissioner, John Wiley Price, submitted a “Juneteenth Resolution” that states suffering blacks should be “satisfied with monetary and substantial reparations.”

In yet another case where lawmakers were unaware of what they were actually voting for because they did not read the bill first, the Dallas County Commissioners Court proclaimed on Tuesday that blacks deserve reparations for slavery. Most of the commissioners apparently didn’t know that they were backing the resolution because they didn’t read it.

Unbelievable.

More on the resolution from the report from The Blaze:

The agenda for Tuesday’s meeting gave no sign that reparations would be a topic. The “Juneteenth Resolution,” commemorating the day slaves in Texas learned of their freedom, seemed from its description to be just another routine proclamation. Others approved on Tuesday expressed support for Men’s Health Month — it’s June — the American Kidney Fund, and an employee in the tax office who’s been on the job for 25 years.

 But Price’s resolution went beyond taking note of Juneteenth; it included a long list of injustices endured by blacks, from slavery to Jim Crow to predatory lending practices. Then, in its final paragraph, it declared that the suffering of African-Americans should be “satisfied with monetary and substantial reparations.”

  1. I grew up during the first “civil-rights” era and have a decidedly different “take” on this whole “civil-rights movement” era.
    Despite the lies and fabrications by the so-called “mainstream media” the Selma and Montgomery “civil-rights marches” were not peaceful “gatherings” that were met with dogs and fire hoses, but were violent black confrontations that actually set back the “cause” of “civil-rights”. .
    The so-called “civil-rights” demonstrations were waves of lawlessness that disrupted the lives of peaceful citizens. There were many black citizens in these areas that were against these “outsiders” coming there to cause trouble. These “civil-rights” marchers committed crimes, rapes, robberies and other crimes, and trashed the areas they were protesting in.
    It is no secret that there was a certain group (the “tribe”) that worked both behind the scenes and actually assisted and encouraged most of the lawlessness and violence by these so-called “civil-rights” marchers. It was mostly ACLU and ADL types that riled things up. . .and then later on “melted into the woodwork” only to become “civil-rights” attorneys, race hustlers and poverty pimps.
    One incident comes to mind–the tragic death of Mrs. Viola Liuzzo–Mrs. Liuzzo was a Detroit housewife who traveled to the South to run around with “freedom riders” at night–this was a recipe that was asking for trouble. What business did she have running around with blacks at night in the South while she had a family in Detroit??
    I WAS THERE during the “civil-rights” disturbances and witnessed the misbehavior of these “civil-rights” groups (that never got reported). . .You see, as is the case today, the “news media of the day could not “let a crisis go to waste” and conveniently stopped recording when violence by these groups was evident.
    Of course, the “victors” write the history. To those of the “tribe”–how does it feel now that those you pushed and supported are now turning on you??
