Letter to the Editor: I'm Glad You're Telling Democrats to Pay Back for Reparations
Just read your piece on reparations. I'm glad someone else thought of tapping the dem party for pay-back. We Republicans did all we could to help the newly-freed slaves start on a path to self-sufficiency. I thought it was great poetic justice that they took the land from plantation owners, and gave it to black families that were required to work that same land for free. Then they could take care of their own families, which is all they would have asked for. This so greatly exemplifies the idea of giving someone a "hand-up, not a hand-out."
If we could get that idea out--that it is the Democrat Party that owes reparations, I think the debate would end quickly.
