Reparations, properly defined as the “act of making amends, offering expiation, or giving satisfaction for a wrong or injury,” are often considered one of the most divisive ideas in American politics. Advocates have spent years upon years calling on lawmakers to assess how the government could offer financial compensation to the descendants of enslaved people.
In a recent interview, Barack Obama discussed his support for reparations and why he didn’t propose them during his presidency.
“What I saw during my presidency was that the politics of white resistance and resentment, the talk of welfare claims and the talk of the undeserving poor, and the backlash against affirmative action, all that made the prospect of actually proposing any kind of coherent, meaningful reparations program struck me as politically, not only a non-starter, but potentially counterproductive,” he said.
Leo Terrell joined Herschel Walker on Hannity Wednesday, blasting Obama for just trying to stay relevant.
“Let me just jump on this because Barack Obama, Sean and America, he’s pandering. He’s pandering to the far left because he needs to stay relevant. That’s why he’s talking reparations and affirmative action,” Terrell said.
“Let me tell you right now, in California they tried to pass affirmative action last year, I was one of the oppositions, it lost in blue state California and he’s wrong,” he added.
Terrell urged that paying people back for things that happened so long ago is unjustifiable.
“White people are not against reparation, all people are against reparation,” he said. “Herschel, black, brown, yellow, white, we don’t believe that reparations is justified for paying people for things that happened 180 years ago. This is nothing more than pandering so that Barack Obama can stay relevant to the socialists,” he added.
“It’s socialists talking points. It will never happen. America, we will never have reparations in this country. Never.”
