This bill requests legislation be enacted to start implementing reparations for African Americans based on Slavery and discrimination.
Personal Choice and Responsibility
It has been close to 160 years since anyone owned an African Slave. Will create victimhood where it is not warranted. There were Chinese, and Irish indentured persons, what about them! African Americans owned slaves, American Indians took slaves. This bill is Racist in its concept!
Once you go down this path and start paying people that were never slaves from people that never owned slaves, the hole gets deeper!
Oregon was never a slave State! This is a Federal Issue.
