I'd settle for reparations for Jim Crow, paid out to the two generations still living that were forced to endure it.
And not just African Americans, either
Ohh, the hot tears of rage to be shed by the Dylann Roof party, were it to ever happen.Any new constitution for the state of South Carolina should include reparations for the descendants of slaves, one Democratic state senator is arguing.
Sen. Marlon Kimpson, D-Charleston, said Monday he would push to include reparations in any discussion of changing the state’s 123-year-old constitution, as some of his colleagues in the S.C. Legislature have called for.
“If the door is opened for a constitutional convention, last amended in 1895 to systematically disenfranchise African-Americans, I plan to introduce the subject of reparations for the descendants of slaves who built this state providing free labor,” Kimpson tweeted.
Several freshmen legislators announced plans last week to call a new constitutional convention, with the intent of moving power from the Legislature to the governor’s office. They hope the move increases accountability and breaks what they see as the hold of a few powerful lawmakers over state government.
