You hear people on the left talking about ‘systemic racism’ quite a bit these days.
It has become a common talking point for Democrats.
In the Senate, Democrats are doing their favorite thing. Throwing money at it. They are now proposing a $350 billion dollar measure over this.
Senate Democrats Propose $350 Billion Reparations Measure to ‘Address Systemic Racism’
Senate Democrats are proposing a $350 billion measure designed specifically to “address systemic racism and historic underinvestment in communities of color,” via the Economic Justice Act, which they announced on Thursday.
Democrats view the measure as an “important down-payment to answer the calls to address systemic racism and historic underinvestment in communities of color.”
The act, unveiled on Thursday, effectively acts as a reparations proposal, with Democrats proposing to “immediately” help minority communities with a $135 billion investment in “child care, mental health and primary care, and jobs.”
The remaining $215 billion would be used to address inequality in the long term, devoting the investment to “infrastructure, a homeowner down payment tax credit, Medicaid expansion, and more.” The act lists ten initiatives to “reverse decades of underinvestment” in the communities.
Proposals include reducing rent and utilities “to 30% of income for low-income individuals and families and build new low-income rental properties,” and providing “$15,000 per family to expand access to homeownership” for minority families, specifically.
To many Americans, this comes off as discriminatory pandering.
PANDERING TO RACE, @SenSchumer's exploitative Democrats released plans for a $350 billion "Economic Justice Act" which will supposedly fight "systemic racism". The plan targets black communities in Democrat-run cities that have increasingly drained state budgets for decades. pic.twitter.com/TkUuOrnVPA

This $350 billion proposal called the Economic Justice Act is nothing more than REPARATIONS in disguise.Much of this money will likely fall into the hands of unscrupulous "administrators" that are more than happy to enrich themselves. It's a shameful sham. https://t.co/G8lL0oXjTW

amazing. The DNC sends out mobs of rioters to burn down cities, and then proposes to spend tax money to “fix” the problem they themselves created.

Are Democrats just worried about losing black voters in November?
