    well, i went straight to the comment section as i always do.
    People are tired of this crap.
    i am a victim too.
    i am a victim of CNN's hatred of AMERICA.
    i want reparations for mental anguish.
    i am offended. i want something too!
    what i really want is to be left alone and not be painted.

    Prior to announcing her candidacy for the Democrat nomination for president, spiritual author Marianne Williamson asked white people at an event to apologize to the black people in attendance for the “evils” perpetrated against black people throughout United States history.
    Williamson, whose “prayer” came during her “Love America Tour” at the Unity of Houston Church in 2018, asked the white people to hold hands with nearby black attendees.

    As the audience repeated her every word, sentence by sentence, Williamson said:

    As I speak, I am going to ask the white Americans in the room to please repeat after me. On behalf of myself and on behalf of my country, to you and all African Americans, from the beginning of our nation’s history, in honor of your ancestors and on behalf of your children please hear this from my heart. I apologize. Please forgive us. With this prayer I acknowledge the depth of the evils that have been perpetrated against black people in America. From slavery to lynchings to white supremacist laws to the denial of voting rights to all the ways, both large and small, all of the evil, all of them wrong, for all the opression, and all of the injustices, I apologize. Please forgive us.”

    “With nearly 200 black people in the audience on their feet, Williamson apologized for slavery, lynching, murders, rapes of black women, destruction of the black family, mass incarceration of black men, being called the N-word and systemic and institutionalized racism and more,” according to the Houston Chronicle‘s Joy Sewing.

    Williamson also made similar comments during her Love America Tour in 2016, according to a video uploaded to her YouTube account.

    i was in OC Maryland during july 4th weekend and Philly running my friends.
    I cant tell you how many boats were running Trump Flags.
    i hung out at a few bars in OC that had TRump flags inside the bar.
    i was on the inlet all day.
    actually overlooked the inlet for 5 days.
    all trump flags got huge attention from positive people.
    i watched 1000's of boats go by.
    lot's of love n strong support.

    When does the left go to far asking White People to Apologize?

    As soon as they thought this non-since up. That is when they went too far.

    So how many times they're going reinvent Entitlement programs so blacks would continue to be crippled both mentally and economically?

    Let me state this as plainly as possible: she's pandering for black votes.

    A better question is how long before the left stops treating blacks as idiot children and treat them as fully functional adults? How long before the left stops harvesting votes from blacks and Hispanics as well as every other “at risk minorities”?

    I don't have anything to apologize for. I don't believe in inherited guilt or group guilt. If I did believe in that BS I still would not feel guilty. I have relatives that served on the anti slavery patrols off the African coast decades before the civil war and my relatives were in Pennsylvania and Michigan at the time and about 500 hundred fought for the union. What do I have to apologize for? Just to be clear those who fought for the south in that war put up a damned good fight and paid a massive price.
    Maybe over 150 years later it is time to let old grudges die but some people find reasons to keep old hate alive even if it is bad for the country. All voters should ask why the dims want us divided, who gains from that?

    How long before black Americans realize that the Democratic Party has completely sold you out to concentrate on importing Hispanic people from Latin America to replace your votes?

    This "white guilt"/reparations issue has the same logical problems as a lot of lefty social issues: if white people are responsible for what other white people did before they were even born, just because we are white, doesn't that mean black people are responsible for what other black people do? But isn't blaming black people for what other black people do, just because they are the same race, exactly the racism the left wants white people to apologize for . . . just because they are white?

    I've had enough of the Left's race-baiting. If you hate America, leave this country.

    The Identity Politics of the Cultural Marxists is all about destroying Western Civilization i.e. the USA. They are extremely anti-white unless you are a progressive white.

    So as stated "somewhere".
    People who were never slaves, will get "reparations" from People who never had slaves ??
    My ancestors, WHO PAID FOR THEIR OWN PASSAGE, came to the US in the late 1800's... (through Ellis Island, worked in NYC, saved money, moved to Long Island and opened businesses.... )
    And I OWE WHO MONEY FOR WHAT ? o_O

    If progressives really cared about blacks, they would be fighting illegitimacy.
    There is no greater social pathology than that one. Yet, progressives are silent about it.
