SheJack: Sheila Jackson Lee Wants Reparations for Slavery

It's 2019 and Houston's Congressional mistake is at it again.

Sheila  Jackson Lee (a carpetbagger from New York) wants people who never owned  slaves to pay reparations to people who were never slaves.

PJ Media reports:     

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) told PJM that the federal  government should conduct a study of reparations for descendants of  slaves to be able to determine the best way to “repair some of the  damage” that slavery has caused to the African-American community.     

Jackson Lee became the lead sponsor of H.R. 40, the Commission to  Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act, after  Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) resigned from Congress.      

The legislation seeks to “address the fundamental injustice, cruelty,  brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13  American colonies between 1619 and 1865 and to establish a commission to  study and consider a national apology and proposal for reparations for  the institution of slavery, its subsequent de jure and de facto racial  and economic discrimination against African-Americans, and the impact of  these forces on living African-Americans, to make recommendations to  the Congress on appropriate remedies, and for other purposes.”….

Here's  an idea: if you want to help the black community, why not look at the  facts?  The situation was vastly improving for the African American  community right up until President Johnson started his "War on Poverty"  and things have been going downhill ever since.  

Maybe the best way to get out of poverty isn't a free handout?
