Obama's Pigford II: The $4.6 billion Reparations FraudTopics: Police Brutality and Corruption
Pigford II ... getting paid big bucks, just for being Black
As Jamie asks over at DBKP ... why, when the government attempts to redress a handful of people who were wronged, does it have to turn it into a gaudy giveaway for a cast of thousands who were nowhere near the scene of the crime? (Clue: Barack Obama is president)
It begs the question of how did 400 black farmers in a class action suit ballooned to over 90,000 claimants when even one of the most energetic advocates for Pigford, John Boyd, founder of the National Black Farmers Association, has admitted that there are only 18,000 black farmers in the country.
American Indians and black farmers will be paid $4.6 billion to address claims of government mistreatment over many decades under landmark legislation President Barack Obama signed Wednesday.Disgusting racism, and nothing less!
The legislation "closes a long and unfortunate chapter in our history," Obama said. "It's finally time to make things right."
The new settlement, totaling nearly $1.2 billion, is intended for people who were denied payments in the earlier settlement because they missed deadlines for filing. Individual amounts depend on how many claims are successfully filed.
