Terrell Blasts Obama’s Statement That Reparations Are ‘Justified’

“America, we will never have reparations in this country. Never.”

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.”

    Obama as president stated that reparations would be impossible to calculate. It was simply non-viable. He was right then. Unfortunately now, with the race-baiting and white-hating that he and Michelle instigated along with Obama influencers like Al Sharpton and Jeremiah Wright between 2009 and 2017, far left radicals in association with BLM which was created during his administration thanks to Obama’s race hustling, feel empowered and enabled to force America to pay Blacks for slavery that happened 2 centuries ago. Some issues: what percent Black to you have to be to qualify as an Afro-American Black? Or is it the Jim Crow ‘1 drop’ criterion? What about Black immigrants who arrived after 1865? Who pays? I would assume ‘whites’ only. Not Hispanics or Asians or American Indians. What about white people whose ancestors didn’t arrive in America till after 1865? Why should they pay? Because they’re ‘white’? Slavery didn’t exist west of the Mississippi. Why should westerners pay. Slavery didn’t exist north of the Mason-Dixon line. Why should ‘Yankees’ pay? So, that leaves ‘white’ families from the South whose ancestors were here prior to the Civil War. Is that who pays? Why form will ‘reparations’ take? Over what period of time? Is there also some ‘apology’ that’s expected from ‘white people’? Why? Because Blacks are inherently racist and they just want to kick you because you’re down? C’mon man. Gimme a break.

    Most American citizens are descendants of post civil war immigrants. They had nothing to do with slavery. The only institution that promoted slavery and still exists from this era is the Democrat party. The Democrat party is the party of slavery, Jim Crow, the KKK, and civil right violations. The Democrat party should be held solely responsible for reparations. They should be made to pay for their sins.

    Leo, I’d like to ask Barry Obama, the most corrupt President in the history of America, if he thinks reparations should be paid to families of the 600,000 white soldiers killed fighting in the Civil War to free the slaves. Of course not as it happened 180 years ago.
    Keep up the good fight to save our country! I’m a huge fan!!

    Well if we need to give reparations to blacks yhen I guess Egypt needs to give reparations to the jews for the 400yrs of slavery they endured between Joseph and Mosesn oh and since my family came to America to flee the persecutions of Stalin. I guess Russia owes our families for the hardship we endured

    And who punishes the blacks in Africa who put those slaves on ships to America? Oh yes … blacks sold blacks, and blacks in America owned slaves, too. The circle won’t stop until this all stops. And no matter what Obummer says … he’s STILL not relevant. Thanks, Leo 2.0 … have to say, welcome to the conservative right. You are now #1 in my book, too.

    God created us all equal, inside, not outside. So what does color matter? It doesn’t. What matters is a person’s relationship with the Almighty, a person’s character, integrity, and honesty. Race only becomes an issue if someone is afraid of the truth- that we ARE all created equal. People use race as an excuse for their lack of belief in God. Some people choose to politicize it just like the pandemic got politicized, which was and is still wrong. God will have the last word.
    By the way, when Columbus and Erickson landed in North America, they found that native Americans already had slaves. How do you justify reparations for them?

    If Obama was so concerned about his fellow Black Americans, why didn’t he ask Congress to send him Anti-Lynching legislation to be signed into law? What a bunch of bologna.

American Pediatrics to Scrutinize ‘Entire Catalog’ to Eliminate ‘Race-Based’ Medicine

Published

on

The American Academy of Pediatrics is “committing to scrutinizing its ‘entire catalog,’ including guidelines, educational materials, textbooks and newsletter articles” in order to “abandon race-based guidance,” reports the Associated Press.

The AP reports that “for years” pediatricians have followed flawed guidelines “linking race to risks for urinary infections and newborn jaundice.” The Academy announced its new policy Monday, saying it will put all guidance under the microscope to eliminate “race-based” medicine and resulting health disparities.

The Academy says it is purging outdated advice and is committed to scrutinizing its “entire catalog” such as guidelines, educational materials, textbooks and newsletter articles, said Dr. Joseph Wright, lead author of the new policy and chief health equity officer at the University of Maryland’s medical system.

The AP writes the Academy’s decision began before George Floyd was killed in 2020, which intensified doctors’ concerns “that Black youngsters have been undertreated and overlooked” , said Wright.

Specifically, a revision to its newborn jaundice guidance which currently suggests certain races have higher or lower risks, is planned for this summer, said Wright. “Last year, the academy retired a guideline calculation based on the unproven idea that Black children faced lower risks that white kids for urinary infections” reports the AP. “A review had shown that the strongest risk factors were prior urinary infections and fevers lasting more than 48 hours, not race, Wright said.”

The AP reports:

In recent years, other major doctor groups including the American Medical Association have made similar pledges. They are spurred in part by civil rights and social justice movements, but also by science showing the strong roles that social conditions, genetics and other biological factors play in determining health.

Dr. Valerie Walker, a specialist in newborn care and health equity at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, called the policy “a critical step” toward reducing racial health disparities.”

D.C. Elementary School Gives Children ‘Fistbooks’ to identify ‘racist family members’, identify their own ‘white privilege’

Published

The obsession liberals have for infiltrating the minds of children is increasingly dangerous. A Washington, D.C. public elementary school gave children as young as 4 in Pre-Kindergarten, through 3rd grade, “Anti-Racism Fight Club Fistbook for Kids.”

The book shows white and black drawn characters; the cover is a Black figure holding a sign above the head, as if in a protest, that reads “ARFC Fistbook for kids.” Underneath the drawing reads (It’s a Fight Club. We don’t do “handbooks.”)

The purpose of the book is for children to identify their own racist tendencies, as well as identify “racist members” of their family. “As part of this work, each student has a fist book to help continue the dialogue at school and home,” a letter from the Janney Elementary School Principal Danielle Singh explained.

“We recognize that any time we engage topics such as race and equity, we may experience a variety of emotions. This is a normal part of the learning and growing process. As a school community we want to continue the dialogue with our students and understand this is just the beginning” the letter continued.

“Anti-Racism Fight Club Fistbook for Kids” explains that “white people are a part of a society that benefits them in almost every instance,” and that “it’s as if white people walk around with an invisible force field because they hold all of the power in America.”
“If you are a white person, white privilege is something you were born with and it simply means that your life is not more difficult due to the color of your skin,” the “Fistbook for Kids” explains.

“Put differently, it’s not your fault for having white privilege, but it is your fault if you choose to ignore it.” The “Fistbook for Kids” says anti-racism “isn’t a spectator sport” but requires “being loud, uncomfortable, confrontational and visible to ensure change is made.”

A series of questions in the book asks children, “Where do you see racism in yourself? This requires true soul-searching. Be real with yourself, don’t feel guilt/shame and own it. It’s the first step in becoming an anti-racist.”
