My Remarks at the AB3121 Task Force Meeting 03/29/2022

Don’t Judge – Don’t Judge. Yeah. I was drinking wine early in the morning in the place of coffee. Yes. Those NAARC and N’COBRA people get on my damned nerves. Wine is the cure. Anyway!!! I was assisted in making those remarks by a bottle of Chateau Buena Vista Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2018. Leading with oak and ripe fruit. Full bodied structure – soft acidity. A medium sustain of blackberries, plums, and vanilla. Ending with raspberries. Long – complex finish.

Here It Is:

Good Morning Task Force:

I’ll make this QUICK.

I get tired of others, including our Black elected representatives always pushing hard to make the descendants of American slaves the “MULES” for all other groups. Including Black immigrants. This is ridiculous. My lineage does all the work – absorbs all the pain – suffers through all the deprivation. But when it comes to some kind of justice – some kind of recompense. We are supposed to step to the back of the line and allow Caribbeans and Africans to be prioritized?

Taking this long to decide on something that should not be a question in the first place is an insult.

Now that I see how Pan Africanism works – I am against Pan Africanism.

If a correction is for the descendants of American slaves – why does it always have to be “Inclusive?” Correction is too good for just Native Black Americans. Right? Even though the slavery and abuse and Reconstructional failure was Exclusively targeted to us. Not targeted to Black folks that landed here voluntarily after the smoke cleared. Tired of this. Gotta include Eskimos, Martians, bluebirds, and any African that just flew in yesterday and got his feelings hurt by a random policeman.

Really?

And he then somehow deserves slavery reparations HERE? No he doesn’t. Anyone that thinks that he does is WRONG. Everyone on this panel understands that a race-based bill at this point is morally, legally, and constitutionally improper.

If this were a Jewish American issue – there would be no question as to eligibility. There would not be this level of open disrespect. Everybody would respect the legalities and sensitivities involved. Everybody on this panel would stay on subject. As the special and designated group of people that BUILT this country – WE exclusively deserve that special respect. AND we should not have to demand this.

This time – I hope that this panel will stay on subject – do the proper thing – and vote in favor of lineage-based reparations. – Hey NAARC and N’COBRA! – The people are not having your overscholarized nonsense.

END OF STATEMENT

This statement is self-explanatory. Share. Comment…
