Tampa Resident Goes Viral – Demands $3M For Every Black Person

(ConservativeInsider.org) – A resident of the city of Tampa, Florida, has demanded $3 million in cash for every Black person in a video that has gone viral on social media. He insisted that White people “have to be put on notice” for the perceived injustice that Black Americans have felt over the last two hundred years, saying that his forbears shouldn’t have had to work for nothing as slaves so that White people should have everything today.

The demand for reparations is nothing new – in 2020, the Governor of California announced that he would look into demands that millions of dollars be paid to every black resident in the city of San Francisco. He has come under increasing pressure to make good on such reparations, but since the cost of doing so would be in excess of $800 billion, it is unlikely that any demand for reparations on that scale would be met.

Other left-wing lawmakers are coming up with even more increasingly outrageous demands. Representative Cori Bush, D-Mo, declared that the US has a legal and moral obligation to provide significant reparations for the enslavement of Africans and the enormous harm that has been passed on to their millions of descendants today.

She declined to say where she thought the estimated $14 trillion to make her wishes come true would come from but insisted that the sum was equivalent to the gap in wealth between Black Americans and White Americans.

It is an often-overlooked fact that the Transatlantic slave trade of the two centuries leading up to the American Civil War comprised only a very small part of the trade in slaves that has been ongoing since the dawn of human history. White people have been traded and trafficked by people of colour since time immemorial, and some Muslim countries still practice slavery today.

However, it is an axiom of the Left that one should never allow the facts to get in the way of a promising-looking hustle.
