Communist and Panderer, RFK, Wants To Give Black Farmers $5 Billion Of Your Money!

Written by Michael Adams.

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announced his support for giving black farmers $5 billion in reparations if he is elected. This proposal aligns with his left-leaning views, despite some early appeals to right-wing voters with his skepticism over vaccine mandates and government overreach.

“When I’m in the White House, I’m going to get rid of those people in [the U.S. Department of Agriculture] and get that money,” Kennedy told John Boyd Jr., founder of the National Black Farmers Association, in an April 24 episode of his podcast, as reported by the Daily Mail. Kennedy emphasized that the $5 billion reparations payment should not be seen as an entitlement or just money, but as a loan that black farmers were entitled to long ago, which was taken from them through discrimination.

The Legal Challenges

Kennedy’s $5 billion reparations proposal was initially part of President Joe Biden’s American Rescue Plan Act. However, the courts declared it unconstitutional. The policy aimed to create a loan-assistance program for “socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers,” defined as those who have faced racial or ethnic prejudice.

Federal Judge Marcia Morales Howard ruled against the program after white farmers in Texas, Florida, and the Midwest challenged it. They argued that it would create a race-based discriminatory program. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack defended the policy, stating, “For generations, socially disadvantaged farmers have struggled to fully succeed due to systemic discrimination and a cycle of debt.”

Kennedy’s Broader Reparations Agenda

Though rarely discussed publicly, reparations are a significant part of the far-left agenda outlined on Kennedy’s website. The former Democrat has been candid about his support for reparations when speaking to specific audiences. Last October, his campaign proposed offering “targeted community repair” for black Americans. This included funds to “rebuild black infrastructure” and direct redress payments or tax credits for “descendants of the victims of Jim Crow and other victims of persecution.”

Kennedy’s consistent push for reparations highlights his commitment to addressing historical injustices faced by black Americans. His proposals aim to create equity and support for communities that have been historically marginalized.

Our Take

Kennedy’s proposal to give black farmers $5 billion in reparations raises important questions about fairness and equity. While addressing historical injustices is crucial, the method and implications of such policies need careful consideration. The challenge lies in creating solutions that promote unity and fairness without fostering division or resentment among different groups. Reparations, especially when framed as race-based financial assistance, can be polarizing and may lead to further legal and social conflicts.

Addressing systemic issues requires thoughtful and inclusive policies that uplift all disadvantaged communities without creating new forms of discrimination. Kennedy’s commitment to reparations highlights the need for ongoing discussions about justice and equality, but these discussions must be approached with a focus on unity and shared progress.
