(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – On Thursday, Tony Daniel, a local resident, told the Tampa City Council that each black resident of the city was owed “at least $3 million in reparations.” He proceeded to state that no one actually cares about homelessness or police violence, which are other topics that the council frequently deals with.
He added that instead, what the residents care about is reparations and making sure that white people understand that they are seeking reparations for the work that their forefathers did. As he noted, their ancestors did not do all of that work for free only to have white people get away with it.
A video of Daniel making his public comments has gone viral since its posting on Twitter. Daniels stated that the council often speaks about the improvements they are making in the city, but that all that they want and all that black people care about is reparations.
These comments came during a time of a general push toward providing reparations to black Americans.
In a recently unveiled resolution, Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) is pushing the government to provide reparations to those who are descendants of enslaved Africans and people of African descent. The resolution is also supported by Democratic Reps. Barbara Lee (Calif.), Jamaal Bowman (N.Y.), and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.). Bush added that the measures would further support previous legislation calling for reparations on a state and local level.
In her own statement, Bush added that black people would no longer wait for the government to start addressing the injustices they had faced since the formation of the country.
In California, there has also been a state reparations task force investigating the possibility of reparations. They are also expected to complete their probe soon.
