In a shocking move that reveals the extreme agenda of the Biden administration, a law professor from Howard University has called on the United Nations to establish a reparations tribunal for Black Americans. Justin Hansford, an appointee to the UN Permanent Forum on People of African Descent, made this outrageous demand during a recent session.
Hansford shamelessly distorted the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., suggesting that the civil rights icon supported reparations. According to Hansford, Dr. King’s famous “I Have A Dream” speech was actually a call for reparations, conveniently ignoring the fact that King never explicitly made such a demand. This is a desperate attempt to rewrite history and manipulate public opinion.
Hansford went even further, claiming that the wealth gap between African Americans and White Americans has remained unchanged for 60 years. This is a baseless assertion that ignores the tremendous progress our nation has made in terms of civil rights and equal opportunity. It is an insult to the millions of hardworking Americans of all races who have achieved success through their own efforts.
The law professor also proposed framing reparations as a form of justice or repair for Black Americans, rather than as a gift or charity. This is a dangerous distortion of the principles of justice and fairness. Reparations based on race would only perpetuate division and sow the seeds of resentment among different communities.
Furthermore, Hansford suggested that legal concepts such as crimes against humanity and genocide could be applied to support the case for reparations. This is a gross misinterpretation of international law and an attempt to weaponize legal terminology to advance a radical political agenda. Reparations cannot be justified by twisting the definitions of these serious crimes.
It is clear that Hansford’s call for reparations is part of a broader strategy to create a new narrative and control the discussion on racial issues. He seeks to silence dissenting voices and marginalize those who disagree with his extreme views. This is an affront to free speech and the principles of intellectual diversity.
It is crucial for Republicans and conservatives to stand up against this dangerous push for reparations. We must expose the truth behind these false claims and reject attempts to divide our nation based on race. Justice and equality can only be achieved through equal opportunity, not through government-sanctioned discrimination. Let us remain vigilant and united in defense of our principles and values.
