The news is out: [Former NFL player Herschel Walker last Wednesday said that Black Americans should not receive reparations for slavery during a congressional hearing on the issue.
The virtual hearing was being held for House Resolution 40, sponsored by Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, which would create a commission to study reparation proposals.
Walker, a standout athlete at the University of Georgia who won the Heisman Trophy in 1982 before launching a longtime professional football career, said that reparations could force Black Americans to use genetics companies to determine payouts based on their ancestry and while also claiming that some Black Americans had involvement in the slave trade.
“We use Black power to create white guilt,” he argued. “My approach is biblical…how can I ask my Heavenly Father to forgive me if I can’t forgive my brother? America is the greatest country in the world for me, a melting pot of a lot of great races, a lot of great minds that have come together with different ideas to make Americans the greatest country on Earth.”
Walker, a longtime friend of former President Donald Trump and a featured speaker at the 2020 Republican National Convention, then launched into the practicality of making reparation payments.]
Herschel Walker is a dumb ass negro who gets to spill his ignorance about slavery during a congressional hearing. Money cannot buy common sense. I love “freedom of speech” because it allows us to hear and identify all the morons.
It doesn’t affect him, so Herschel doesn’t think, for example, that redlining is a result of slavery and is still being used today against blacks. Herschel doesn’t think that negroes being executed in broad daylight is another result of slavery. When it comes to Herschel’s mind, I should lower my voice in respect for the dead.
