Reference: For one, a president doesn't get "lobbied to" once he takes office. That kind of access is not granted to those kinds of people. His decision whether or not to sign had nothing to do with arm-twisting from "lobbyists and conservatives.

I say Jesse Jackson doesn't encourage victimhood because he does things like this: "Jackson's PUSH/Excel for the schools was a moral campaign requiring pledges from parents and students as well as teachers to devote themselves to academic achievement ."

Honestly, this is the position that he has held for some time, if people had paid attention to what his former consultant Samantha Powers said back in March, before she got the boot for calling Hillary a monster. In that same interview that got her into so much trouble. She stated, "He will, of course, not rely on some plan that he's crafted as a presidential candidate or a U.S. Senator."

Re: ADOS Shrinks Reparationist Politics to Fit the Cramped Horizon of Tribalism

The writer is misinformed. ADOS is not about dividing the Africans that were enslaved by other countries. The purpose is to focus on the legitimate claim of Africans in America that have been enslaved here, built this country, and are due reparations. If the descendants of Caribbean slave nations want to file a claim against their former colonizer, they can and should do so on their own. This matter has been brought to the spotlight because the Democratic Party just get free votes from Black...

I must admit that the writer's point was confusing to me, in that it accuses this movement (ADOS) of tribalsim, supposedly, it appears, because ADOS is only advocating for Reparations for descendants of American slaves. However, from the beginning, each Black nation has demanded Reparations from their perspective former enslavers/colonizers, etc. So, . . .
