Democrats Cause Black People’s Misery

Democratic Representative Steve Cohen of Tennessee welcomed Burgess Owens to speak to the House Judiciary hearing on slavery reparations Wednesday.

Retired NFL player and author Burgess Owens is blasting the Democrat Party for its dark past of suppressing black Americans.

Owens said: “I used to be a Democrat until I did my history and found out the misery that that party brought to my race... Let's pay restitution. How about the Democratic Party pay for all the misery brought to my race..."

During the House Judiciary hearing on slavery reparations Wednesday, Owens said if any modern Americans should be held responsible for the evils of slavery and forced to pay restitution for it then it should be the Democrats.

Owens went on to say reparations would only hold back African Americans, forcing them to believe they are victims — which he called the biggest insult.

He also went on to say blacks brought to America have been given the most economic opportunities of any black race on this planet.

When Mr. Owens was done talking, Steve Cohen was so dumb struck, he didn’t even think to thank him and just said, the next person speaking is....

The following words are mine. How does a race of people choose to follow a political party who made up the Ku Klux Klan? How does anybody want to be a party member of people who lynched their ancestors right along with the Republicans and probably from the same trees? KKK is white supremacy at it’s finest. Really my black brothers are you willing to sell your soul for a free sandwich and a bag full of false promises?

Your brother in Christ.
