Reply to "Obama Speaks Out Against Slavery Reparations"

"I have said in the past - and I'll repeat again - that the best reparations we can provide are good schools in the inner city and jobs for people who are unemployed," the Illinois Democrat said recently.

I vehemently disagree.

I will oppose him just as I will anyone else who argues the same.

And...I am still going to vote for him.

And...I am going to fight him on the issue.

It should be noted that 'Reparations' is an issue for the courts...the federal courts...seeking a decision of the validity of the demand for word done.

It is not about opinion...including that of the President of the United States.

It would be nice if he were in favor, and...he can certainly influence public opinion.

But public opinion does not have to agree either.
