Fiercely Heterosexual Democrat Presidential Candidate Cory Booker Introduces Reparations Bill

YASSS SLAY KWEEN!


Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) filed legislation on Tuesday that would form a commission to study the issue of granting reparations to African-Americans.

Booker had previously announced that he would be filing legislation, arguing that some of the country's "bedrock domestic policies" have "systematically excluded blacks."

"This bill is a way of addressing head-on the persistence of racism, white supremacy, and implicit racial bias in our country. It will bring together the best minds to study the issue and propose solutions that will finally begin to right the economic scales of past harms and make sure we are a country where all dignity and humanity is affirmed," Booker said in a statement earlier this week.

But Cory Booker is as fierce in his desire for reparations as he is fierce in his desire for a woman's genitals, whatever they might be.

And so he also wants reparations for... drug dealers, starting with expunging their criminal records.

Booker's aim is now to expand support for his Marijuana Justice Act, which was first introduced in 2017 and, unlike Warren's bill, doesn’t include a single Republican sponsor. It removes cannabis from the list of controlled substances while also expunging the records of anyone locked up for use or possession charges.

Pro-tip: No one is locked up for use or possession of marijuana, though that might be what you're charged with when they plead you down from dealing.

And it's not just drug-dealers getting their criminal records expunged -- it's the government pouring more money into the areas which it harmed by... making dangerous drugs illegal and telling people they shouldn't do them.

That measure also sets up a "community reinvestment fund" that would put money into job training programs and community centers in the areas left most blighted by the war on drugs.

...

Booker says his line in the sand -- that social justice has to be a part of any legalization effort -- has been building for some time.

"I get very angry when people talk about legalizing marijuana and then give no light to how marijuana law enforcement was done in ways that fed upon poor communities -- black and brown communities," Booker said. "This is a war on drugs that has not been a war on drugs -- it's been a war on people, and disproportionately poor people and disproportionately black and brown people."

...

The demand for a restorative justice, or community oriented, approach isn’t confined to Booker alone. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democrat of New York, told VICE News that if the local communities with the highest minority incarceration and poverty rates that have directly stemmed from the decades long war on drugs are not included, then she's not on board either.

Ehhh, I don't know if I agree with this. Maybe in 2019, this is true, but as recently as 10-20 years ago, marijuana possession was a felony in a decent number of states. Go back farther, and it was a felony in many states.

I also know of people in the past few years have been locked up for simple marijuana possession. Now, to be fair, it was always a bit more complicated than that -- for example, one guy got probation for possession, and then failed to pass a drug test while on probation (for marijuana), and was THEN locked up -- so technically he was in jail on violation of probation. But the nexus for these people going to jail was a simple possession charge.

Nah, the Pigford case was about the USDA discriminating in farm loans in the '80s and '90s (kind of a disparate impact thing.)

I don't think anyone ever got compensated for not getting their 40 acres and a mule.

Which was an empty promise to begin with, I think it was Grant (or someone in the Union army) who said "we should confiscate southern (white) farmers lands, re-allocate it to freed slaves, and give them military-surplus mules to help them get started." And Congress was like "nah, bro. We have to respect property rights and not act like total dicks in our victory over the south here."

I do think that some military surplus equipment, like mules, was auctioned off for cheap / given out for free to freed slaves though.

We have too many diversity hires as "Exhibit A" already, evidence for why demanding race based entitlement is a horribly destructive idea. More Bigger Racism, does not heal ancient now dead racism.

Three or four. Like I said, there were extenuating circumstances in all of the cases. (mostly probation violations, although one guy had a previous possession charge from when marijuana was a felony in my state and so was a convicted felon who had served 6 months in county jail in the '90s, so... repeat offender).

None got *serious* jail time -- a month or two in the county jail, but still... That's pretty disruptive to your life to have to go to jail, and you have to disclose on your job applications for the rest of your life that you've been convicted of a crime.

One of the families managed to send a kid on an African trip. The silence of the kids when returning from an audience with an African 'king' who apologized to them for selling his people was stunning.

I haven't seen those numbers.

What I have seen is a slight uptick in DUI's for weed, now that cops are more on alert for it (and people are less worried about having weed in plain view in their cars).

Colorado is a bit of an outlier, in that they legalized weed first and were a bit of a clarion call to the burn outs and degenerates across the country to moved to CO. They've seen increases in addiction rates and homelessness and things like that.

However, that's been a pattern all over the West -- they, like the East, have a serious heroin problem out there.

Obama's mother does not constitute who he is.

She symbolizes a start to whites giving reparations: she gave herself to a drunken, angry pseudo intellectual black man. But she does not contribute to whom Obama is in any way. The man, the legend that is Barack Obama is 100% black and he deserves yet more reparations from whites, of which his "mother" is a symbolic start. His mother's passive quiescence and father's anger obliterates any part she played in his physical/racial make up.

So the takeaway: you are too dumb to understand liberal metaphysics. That is your problem. Just shut up and listen to your betters. These concepts go beyond a conservative's ability to comprehend.

274 I also know of people in the past few years have been locked up for simple marijuana possession. Now, to be fair, it was always a bit more complicated than that -- for example, one guy got probation for possession, and then failed to pass a drug test while on probation (for marijuana), and was THEN locked up -- so technically he was in jail on violation of probation. But the nexus for these people going to jail was a simple possession charge.

276 Reparations for slavery have been paid many times over in blood and treasure.

In fact the bulk of Americans came in the late 19th and early 20th century and have literally no connection with slavery as either owning or being a slave.

The slave population numbered at just under 4 million so who are you going to pay and how is that going to be ascertained?

Furthermore, slaves were held by individuals not the government and was legal so why does the Government, ie the taxpayer owe restitution to something that was legal at that time?

This is complete bullshit.

The eight lost Soetero years opened many of these people's eyes. Smullet/Foxx probably opened more. Here is hoping that the democrat 2020 candidates keep flogging the reparations horse to open the eyes of the rest of them.

LOL. That would be "no areas".

I don't think any area is blighted because of "the war on drugs". It's because of the drug use, itself. And the only ones who are to blame for drug use on the street are those using the drugs. Tough concept, I know.

_____________________

Remember the "Community Reinvestment Act" of 1977? That was a federal law that forced banks to make mortgage loans to unqualified minority borrowers, under the (ludicrous and factually unsupported) rationalization that minorities had been unfairly "denied access" to credit markets. The CRA eventually led to the housing meltdown (and resulting recession) of 2009.

Whenever a politician starts talking about "community reinvestment" hold onto your wallets, because you're about to be screwed.

There is limited research that suggests a several month fast routine reverses diabetes. It simulates effects found with barbaric surgery in obese patients.

Apparently the stress reactivates and repairs insulin processes in the pancreas and liver. Similar benefits are thought to be the case in general for other aging cellular processes.

Come to think of it, I'm a victim myself. Where's my reparations for all the money I would've made had I had a job post-NAFTA? Hmmm? It's a not-insubstantial sum. *holds out hand and taps foot impatiently*

341 Remember the "Community Reinvestment Act" of 1977? That was a federal law that forced banks to make mortgage loans to unqualified minority borrowers, under the (ludicrous and factually unsupported) rationalization that minorities had been unfairly "denied access" to credit markets. The CRA eventually led to the housing meltdown (and resulting recession) of 2009.

Whenever a politician starts talking about "community reinvestment" hold onto your wallets, because you're about to be screwed.
Posted by: TrivialPursuer at April 11, 2019 12:53 PM (fqUgw)

The CRA (and Pigford settlement that was mentioned in the previous thread) are all about "disparate impact" -- black people, on average, have worse credit scores, so they find it harder to get credit.

Which... is the point of credit scores. To help lenders determine how risky an individual is.

I don't know how someone can look at that data (black people have worse average credit scores then white people) and claim "systematic racism must be the cause."

But, alas, here we are.

Because racism is a system that collectively helps white people at the expense of black people, no matter their individual contributions. Also, it is impossible for black people to be racist because they hold no political power, and racism is an exercise of political power to keep down minorities. It will never go away until we have some form of black nationalist communism as our governing principle.

I consider myself moderately informed, have no avenue to "inside information", and yet I knew of all of these charges, in genral, 6 months ago, and I knew of them specifically at least a month ago.

But today, to all of the media, it's a "Big Surprise!!!!"" It just shows how incompetent they are at their phoney baloney jobs. They're just megaphones that shriek whatever everyone else is shrieking, kinda like the seagulls in the Finding Nemo films. They know nothing, they understand nothing.

A good argument in favor of selling them F-35's is that then Trump can give Bibi an I-phone that has an app pre-installed, the one called the "Turn that plane around and auto-fire on Erdogan's palace" app. It would just need that Boeing auto-pilot that yanks all control away from the pilots whenever it wants to.

She refused to believe it and dismisses it as something that would never happen anyway. Silver lining of reparations will be seeing her tears and rage as her rather hefty retirement accounts are seized and redistributed as punishment for white privilege, which she is also unaware her candidate says she has.

428 At the risk of passing off the libertarian potheads here, but:

-- Recent studies just confirmed what has long been anecdotally suspected, that repeated pot use causes psychosis and brain damage in a significant percentage of users.

In fact, a greater percentage of pot users will go psychotic than cigarette smokers will get lung cancer.

So pot is more dangerous and worse for you than tobacco, after all. Ooops.

This whole "criminalize cigarettes while simultaneously legalizing marijuana" movement is nothing but pure "revenge lawfare" by those who want to destroy the existing social order: cigarettes are deemed a symbol of the patriarchal white-supremacist old-boy-network "bad" social order of the old days, while pot is the symbol is the hip-and-cool counterculture. So, as a way to crush and humiliate the old social order, the time has come to make THEIR puff of choice taboo, shameful and illegal, while making OUR puff of choice legal and protected.

In reality both are just plants, which have no cultural or social element. Just plants. And both are plants which, if you inhale their smoke, are bad for you. That's all there is to it.

This is the wrong response. Nobody owes reparations. Period.

The ones who owe money, if anyone, are the blacks who were lucky enough to have their ancestors forcibly brought to the greatest country that has ever existed. They are the luckiest blacks on Earth. If anything, they owe us, because if they hadn't been brought over here they would have been born in some total shithole with no chance of anything.

I answer black calls for reparations by letting them know that they are the ones who should be paying, if anyone. That is the truth of the situation.

Shit. I'm glad that the Cossacks chased my ancestors out of Russia. Sure, it made life awful for them but getting to the US (getting out of Russia, at all) was the best thing that ever could have happened to my family.

The entire reparations movement is a thoroughly reprehensible, evil, disgusting leftist ploy to dangle pennies in front of blacks to try to distract them from the decimation leftist policies have had on the black family since the Jim Crow era of the post-civil war democrats.

Intent to sell was apparently determined by having more than 8 ounces or more than 12 ounces or something like that. So he was busted for drug dealing, even though he was not and had no intention of dealing.Eh, it is what it is.
