Mitch McConnell Says Electing Obama Was Reparations

AFRICANGLOBE - Mitch McConnell believes America made up for slavery by electing Barack Obama, and passing civil rights legislation -- though he sees no need to restore the Voting Rights Act, and calls efforts to expand voting rights a "half-baked, socialist proposal." If you've heard of "40 acres and a mule," then you know that the concept of America paying reparations for the enslavement of Black people is by no means a new idea. The concept has been discussed since 1865 when the promise to repay -- I use that term loosely -- former slaves was made by Union Gen. William T. Sherman and then backed by President Abraham Lincoln and Congress.
