Heisman Trophy winner and NFL legend Herschel Walker blasted the ridiculous notation that reparations needs to be paid to black Americans. He testified against the Dems’ proposal to establish such reparations, stating that “we use black power to create white guilt.”
Walker testified as a witness against H.R. 40, which is Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act. The Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties convened virtually on Wednesday to discuss the proposal.
“We use black power to create white guilt. My approach is biblical. How can I ask my Heavenly Father to forgive me if I can’t forgive my brother?” Walker began, “I never want to put any one religion down; my religion teaches togetherness. Reparations teach separation.”
He added that slavery in America ended 130 years ago, and history in public schools is not taught properly.
America is the “greatest country in the world,” and is a “melting pot of a lot of great races, a lot of great minds that have come together with different ideas to make American the greatest country on earth.”
“Many have died trying to get into America. No one’s dying trying to get out,” Walker continued. “Reparations — where would the money come from? Does it come from all the other races except the black taxpayers? What percentage of black must you be to receive reparation? Do you go to 23andMe or DNA test to determine the percentage of blackness?”
“Some American ancestors just came to their country 80 years ago,” he said. “Some black immigrants weren’t here during slavery, nor their ancestors. Some states didn’t even have slavery.”
“Years later after slavery ended, Dr. King said, the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation was a great beacon of light but one hundred years later, we’re still not free because of segregation and discrimination. Today, I call that reparation,” Walker continued.
