On a recent episode of Prager University’s “The Candace Owens Show”—which is more than enough reason to not vote for this tool anyway—California GOP candidate for governor in the recall election, Larry Elder said an argument could be made that slave owners are owed reparations after the Civil War because slavery was legal and their “property” had been taken:
“When people talk about reparations, do they really want to have that conversation? Like it or not, slavery was legal. Their legal property was taken away from them after the Civil War, so you could make an argument that the people that are owed reparations are not only just Black people but also the people whose ‘property’ was taken away after the end of the Civil War.”
Property was human beings, stolen from their homelands and sailed across the seas to be separated and sold from their own families into a lifetime of forced labor, beatings, rape, murder, being treated, and called, less than human, and you think the men and women who owned other human beings deserve reparations?
Larry Elder can fuck all the way off.
