Pass H.R. 40 – Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act

Campaign to Pay America’s First Debt’s Docs Pass H.R. 40 - Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act

Congress must pass H.R. 40 to begin the process of repaying African Americans for hundreds of years of forced labor and oppression.  In “A vast wealth gap, driven by segregation, redlining, evictions, and exclusion, separates black and white America ” Trymaine Lee reported that the median family wealth for white Americans to be $171,000, but only $17,600 for people.”  This wealth divide is centuries in the making and existed at the birth of this country.  It creates an inequality in opportunities for black Americans that prevent many blacks from buying homes, attending quality schools, and providing for their children.  For centuries, Americans created and maintained an unequal playing field between whites and blacks that must be fixed.  The only way to fix centuries of exploitation and inequality is to create legislation that repays blacks for their lost wealth.  We must take action so Congress must pass H.R. 40 to begin the process of repaying African Americans for hundreds of years of forced labor and oppression.  In “A vast wealth gap, driven by segregation, redlining, evictions, and exclusion, separates black and white America ” Trymaine Lee reported that the median family wealth for white Americans to be $171,000, but only $17,600 for people.”  This wealth divide is centuries in the making and existed at the birth of this country.  It creates an inequality in opportunities for black Americans that prevent many blacks from buying homes, attending quality schools, and providing for their children.  For centuries, Americans created and maintained an unequal playing field between whites and blacks that must be fixed.  The only way to fix centuries of exploitation and inequality is to create legislation that repays blacks for their lost wealth.  We must take action so America can begin its journey of repenting for its original sin.
