“Is the stimmy a form of reparations?” my 1-year-old daughter asked me the other day.

I looked at her puzzled, and then asked where she’d heard such big words. She replied that her daycare is near:

I kid. My daughter doesn’t go to daycare with COVID-19 running unchecked in these MAGA streets. I live near Washington, D.C., and they have been running around with buttnaked faces since they arrived. It’s really rather disgusting, but I digress and don’t eat takeout anymore.

Anyway, Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee is a real one, and she is going to get us some money or she is going to die trying, but either way, she’s reintroduced “legislation that would create a team to explore reparations options for Black Americans” as none other than Joe “I owe y’all one for that whole crime bill thing” Biden and HBCU graduate Kamala Harris are poised to take office.

From Black Enterprise:

Jackson’s H.R.40 bill will allow and fund a formal commission to study and develop reparation proposals for the African American Act. While the bill has received support from House Democrats, many Republicans including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have shown strong opposition to the legislation.

“In short, the commission aims to study the impact of slavery and continuing discrimination against African-Americans, resulting directly and indirectly from slavery to segregation to the desegregation process and the present day,” Jackson Lee said in a statement regarding the legislation, according to the Washington Informer.

“The impact of slavery and its vestiges continues to affect African Americans and indeed all Americans in communities throughout our nation,” Jackson Lee added. “This legislation is intended to examine the institution of slavery in the colonies and the United States from 1619 to the present, and further recommend appropriate remedies. Since the initial introduction of this legislation, its proponents have made substantial progress in elevating the discussion of reparations and reparatory justice at the national level and joining the mainstream international debate on the issues.”

Look at this queen, steady at work. While the shortsighted are on the upcoming stimmies promised to us by the new president who got there with the support of Black women (#neverforget), Jackson-Lee is looking for the long play.

I don’t have any proof of this but something tells me that Jackson-Lee might be a part of LLC Twitter, and I’m OK with that.

Our goal is to create a safe and engaging p

The important question is whether they are in a position to do anything about it. My affections, being concentrated over a few people, are not spread all over Hell in a vile attempt to placate sulky, worthless shits.” - William S Burroughs

Sorry. No taxation without representation. I am not represented by anyone so no I will not be paying reparations to people who were. Ever slaves. My family never owned slaves and came here as indentured servants. Again, no. I will not be paying.

There is not one black person in the country today that was a slave, you do not get any thing. Get off your ass and get a job. That is what my family has done since 1720, we came here from Germany

It would cost 4.5 trillion to give every black person in America $100,000. In nine months, 95% of that money would be in the hands of white people. Why not just do it. Fuck, it’s not like the money is real.

The logistics could get complicated. Here in south Carolina, some slaves were 7/8 white. If somebody has as much negro blood as Senator Pocahontas Ugly Bear Warren has Comanche blood, will he get repaired?

It would take longer than 9 months and then most of the money would be spent. However, no more than 10% of the money would end up in white hands because there is not more profit than 10% in the stuff whites sell to the niggers.
