The news is out: [“We helped build this nation. We built the United States Capitol. We built the White House. We made cotton king and that built the early economy of the United States,” Texas congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, the sponsor of a House resolution to study reparations, said in an interview this week. “We were never paid, never given insurance, never received compensation for the more than 200 years of living and working in bondage. And we continue to live with the stain of slavery today.”]
Slaves worked sunup to sundown in plantations, were fed a piece of salted fish and lemonade, never got paid, while the massas sat on the porch indulging in moonshine and drugs. Now, that’s welfare.
