While appearing on CNBC Monday, Robert Johnson, the founder of Black Entertainment Television (BET), said the government should provide $14 trillion in reparations for slavery. That’s TRILLION, with a “T.” Keep in mind that he’s talking about your tax dollars.
“Now is the time to go big,” he said. But wait, there’s more.
“Wealth transfer is what’s needed,” he added. “Think about this. Since 200-plus-years or so of slavery, labor taken with no compensation, is a wealth transfer. Denial of access to education, which is a primary driver of accumulation of income and wealth, is a wealth transfer.”
He also suggested a one-time payment of — get this — $350,767 to every African-American descendant of slaves.
