He did. This promise was kept. Every American who actually owned a slave has been required to pay reparations. Sadly this legislation may be a little late but we are combing the retirement communities and if we find someone over 160 years old we will be looking into their financial transactions very closely. Were also having a hard time finding any former slaves to pay the reparations too. But, if they will just come forward I can assure you that if we find their previous masters we will make them pay.

Uh, in what plane of existence did this promise happen? If it did, it p!sses me off, as the President's white 1/2 (he is 1/2 white) should've also promised reparations for me and the kabillion OTHER people who had ancestors taken in slavery to build this country (yes, and the Natives who LOST it). There isn't enough payment of ANY kind to make up for lives taken away and ruined. We live in a time where there are MORE slaves held....TODAY....than were taken during the 400 years of African slaving. Please use your abundant extra time to pitch for help for the misery going on NOW instead of this stupid, UNdoable idea of soaking taxpayers now for something they had nothing to do with given to those who weren't slaves. Just stop it. Moron
