Voice: Democrat Party should pay slave reparations

May 13, 2002

Now I'm really confused! It has been reported that California has passed a law requiring insurance companies to divulge any connection they might have had to the slave trade, because slavery was the law of the land.

Businesses, were required to "cooperate" with slave owners, because at the time it was "politically correct." If insurance companies didn't provide insurance policies to slave owners, they could have been sued in court and held liable for not insuring Negro slaves!

Let's go after the real criminals of slavery, those who championed same in their party platforms.

From 1830 to 1860, only one political party on the face of the Earth, put into its party platform, the complete support of slavery, the DEMOCRAT PARTY.

Shouldn't they be first in paying reparations? Why make loyal, conservative Republicans — or even supporters of the American Communist Party — pay for the corruption of the Democrat Party?
