Martin Luther King explains why the government needs to cut a check

One thing that people don’t mention when they speak about “pulling yourself up by your bootstraps” is that many of the so-called self-made Americans actually received a great deal of help from the federal government.

Dr King very eloquently describes the history of how many whites were given free farmland, as well as training on how to farm the land at a time when black people were locked out of many of these opportunities.

As a result, decades later, whites own the majority of all land throughout the United States, and African Americans continue to struggle economically. Make sure these messages are shared with those who believe that blacks are behind economically because whites are smarter with money or harder working people. Dr. King’s video clearly shows that this is NOT true in the least and that there should be reparations to make up for the vast economic damage that has been done over hundreds of years by whites who’ve not only blocked blacks from economic opportunity, but have stolen many of their assets in the process.
