Obama Approves $12 Million for Holocaust Survivors, Not One Dime for African-American Reparations
by Yvette Carnell
Tragic as it was, the Holocaust didn’t occur in this country. It was a foreign atrocity. Still, Holocaust survivors receive more financial redress than the ancestors of African-American slaves.
From the Times of Israel:
The Obama administration has awarded $12 million for assistance to Holocaust survivors.
Obama Earmarks $12 Million for Holocaust Survivors, Not One Dime for Black Reparations
The allocation from the Department of Health and Human Services to the Jewish Federations of North America, to be disbursed over five years, is part of an initiative launched in late 2013 by Vice President Joe Biden to address the needs of survivors in the United States, a quarter of whom live below the poverty line.
According to the State of Working America, “African Americans had the highest poverty rate, 27.4 percent, followed by Hispanics at 26.6 percent and whites at 9.9 percent. 45.8 percent of young black children (under age 6) live in poverty, compared to 14.5 percent of white children.”
When faced with record high unemployment in the black community in 2012, Obama didn’t allot targeted funds to African-Americans, as he’s doing for Holocaust survivors. He merely pointed out that he’s “not the president of black America.”
“My general view has been consistent throughout, which is that I want all businesses to succeed. I want all Americans to have opportunity. I’m not the president of black America,” Obama said. “I’m the president of the United States of America, but the programs that we have put in place have been directed at those folks who are least able to get financing through conventional means, who have been in the past locked out of opportunities that were available to everybody.”
And what about the survivors of Black Wall Street, who watched as white mobs destroyed their community, along with the businesses they’d built? Don’t they deserve reparations from the first black president?
Once again, Obama proves that he’s the president of everyone except black people.
