BET founder Robert Johnson is now calling for 14 Trillion dollars to be given to African Americans as reparations for slavery.
Johnson’s call comes as the nation is convulsed with rioting and lawlessness unseen in decades.
As The Daily Wire reports:
The founder of Black Entertainment Television says the federal government should pay out $14 trillion to black Americans as reparations for slavery.
Robert Johnson, a billionaire, said Monday on CNBC that the wealth disparity in the U.S. and police brutality against blacks are the cause of violent protests across the country. To fix the problem, pay out trillions, Johnson said.
“Now is the time to go big,” he said. “Wealth transfer is what’s needed. Think about this. Since 200-plus-years or so of slavery, labor taken with no compensation, is a wealth transfer. Denial of access to education, which is a primary driver of accumulation of income and wealth, is a wealth transfer.”
Johnson said reparations would be the “affirmative action program of all time,” delivering a message to white Americans that “damages … are owed” for slavery and the decades of racism that followed.
