How could a presidential candidate say something like this…

On CNN’s “State of the Union,” 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg said he begin to will restore the dollars stolen from black Americans through generations.

Buttigieg said, “The reason we’re seeing racial inequity in this country is it was put into place on purpose. And I’m not just talking about slavery beginning 400 years ago. I’m talking about policy decisions within living memory, excluding black Americans from fully accessing the GI bill to labor protections. These have consequences.”

He continued, “There is a much bigger picture here, and it has to do with inheritance and the wealth gap and the fact if you are black in this country as a consequence of systemic racism, you start out with less. In the same way that if you save a dollar, it compounds over the years and becomes more and more. Same is true of a dollar stolen. And that has happened to black Americans through generations. It is why I’ve proposed a Douglas Plan as ambitious as the Marshal Plan that rebuilt Europe, but this time we have to invest right here in America. Criminal justice reform is important, but that is not all there is to the black experience in this country.”

He added, “We have to be lifting up black entrepreneurs, making sure that federal taxes spending and I propose a 25% target is going to businesses owned by those who have been systematically disadvantaged in the past and investing in HCBU’s that are training what could be the new class of black millionaires and of black middle class of professionals in education, law enforcement, medicine,” Buttigieg added. “We need systemic answers to deal with this issue, and we need to confront the legacy of discrimination.”

  1. What are you going to donate to this unworthy cause Pete? How deep are your pockets? This is nothing more than pandering to a group of prople that think Americans owe them. There’s not one white or black living that has any connection to slavery. You and your kind are trying to buy your way into the white house, because you lack any platform to challenge the current administration on that has any merit.

    • Peety should drop out of the potus race & dedicate his life to fixing the ills his WHITES have done

      As a LATINO SOMETHING I HAVEN’T seen in 65 yrs in AMERICA & a real combat warrior vs an intel type who never saw combat

  2. THIS LITTLE BOY DOESN’T KNOW WHAT HE’S TALKING ABOUT. HE’S JUST TALKING OUT HIS PIE HOLE. BECAUSE HIS NOT MAN HIS AN IT. AND HE THINKS WHAT EVER SAYS HE CAN GET AWAY WITH. HE REALLY NEEDS TO STEP DOWN OFF HIS LITTLE STOLE AND DROP OUT THE RACE HE HAS NO CHANCE IN HELL TO BECOME THE NOMINEE FOR PRESIDENT. MAYBE FOR PUBLIC TOILET BOWL CLEANSER.

    • Too much playing the BOTTOM in his game of life?????
      Does Kamala Harris get paid or does she pay????
      Hr father reports they had slaves om
      n their plantation in Jamaica and a guy with a WHIP
      to keep the slaves in line!!!!

  3. Slavery should be a dead issue but certain people want to keep it alive. Since there are no former slave owners or slaves still alive, I have a great idea! Let’s talk about what “Great” things White people have done for the Black population.
    There are many things all citizens can be thankful for that White’s have done in this country.
    Reparations would be an insult to the American Indian and other ethnic groups. Giving money to Black people just because they are Black would be an insult to millions of others.

  4. I’d definitely investigate his honesty, if I were investigative journalist. What is there to investigate?
    1. How much this clown donated to social cases?
    2. How much of those donations went to black communities?
    3. Did he make any improvements to black communities in his district?
    4. Did he help any small businesses owned by black entrepreneurs? And most importantly, did he use his own money for such a help?

  5. I’ll say it again,If your family benefited from slavery then maybe you should consider paying retribution.My family did Not,so I will pay nothing !!!!! Kamala Harris’ family did and many of the Elites families did,that’s why they are so wealthy. They can pay,I don’t want any of their money !!!!!! I’ll make my own but, you’re Not going to steal mine either !!!!!

  6. I don’t know where Butt-Gag or his family stands on this issue !!!!! It seems to me with his intensity on the issue his family did benefit from slavery !!!!! Also why are we talking about Only Black slavery !!!!!! What about the Irish Slavery etc.!!!!! Well Butt-Gag,What do you say about that !!!!!

  8. Hey, Pete, you ARE A FUCKEN MORON……..you obviously have joined the rest of the brain deads running for DemoCRAPTIC office….you are all in a daze, and have your heads up your ass……….

  9. this idiot is a per fit fit for AOC neither one of them has enough sense to poor piss out of boot in the direction of the heal and as far as whites being the reason blacks are poor is bull crap those people have been giving so much free they are no longer free but slaves of the democrats and there giveaways

  10. Petie sounds more like a Manson cult follower. He has come out of the pit to help lead the race war.
    The blacks are too stupid to pull it off so he`s there to show them how. This makes as much sense as anything else. Hey Bugs! The black man does not need you no matter what Hillary told you.

  11. The problem here is that the mayor has been taking it in the butt whereas it is showing signs that his brains are leaking. The kinky things that he comes up with are showing. When YOU join in with the ‘RACE CARD’ , remember this, IT WAS BARACK INSANE OBAMA who brought ‘RACE’ into play. Prior to his election, whites, blacks, were getting along fine. People found that they had time for each other.

  12. He, of course, is Correct. His points are not about slavery , but about planned financial inequality for blacks, perpetuated and maintained by the government. Jim Crow did enormous damage, while this was going on, also.. mayor Pete , so far, appears to be a brilliant veteran who represents the best of America.

  13. Another waste of time. He like the other lower tier candidates wouldn’t stand a chance against the President on the stage. I really don’t see any of them going to far, but you have that deceptive underlying movement out there hell bent on overthrowing our government based on a system that has never worked in history. They have made this President look bad every chance they get. America regardless of what you hear from the dark side, this man if you look at his accomplishments on paper and then put them on a level playing field, President Trump has more accomplishments in 3 years than any other President in the history of this great nation, PERIOD The dems of course are going to bash him, The news candified media is going to bash, but ask WHY!. It is because he doesn’t play their games and he rubs them the wrong way and is getting things done that is against their AGENDA

  14. Please identify a black person today that has lived in slavery. Heck lets take it a step further, please identify a black person today whose parents lived in slavery. Now lets identify the black slave owners. Now, how about the blacks that didn’t even have ancestors in the country during slavery.. for those white people that gave their lives and fought for the freedom of slavery, don’t they count. Look at any major city and the suppression of blacks and you will find a democrat leading the way. To quote a couple of great Americans to the black community “get off the democratic plantation” and from one more great American “what have you got to lose” A hand up is what is needed, not another hand out. By the way, how are those sexual abuse allegations against you coming along?
