The early vote of the House Judiciary Committee was an important milestone for those who proposed the initiative.
United States- The House Committee is preparing to vote on Wednesday, for the first time in history, to establish a committee to consider compensation for African Americans to compensate for the damage caused by slavery in the United States, and for centuries The “national apology”.
The early vote of the House Judiciary Committee is an important milestone for those proposing repairs to the damage, who have worked for decades and won the support of the ruling party to tackle the effects of slavery.
Democrats in this group hope to advance legislation and overcome Republican opposition.
This proposal is called HR 40, which recalls the unfulfilled promise of “40 acres of land and a son” to former slaves in the Civil War. The chance of this proposal becoming law is small. Due to the opposition of some Democrats and Republican fronts, they believe that African Americans do not need government donations to solve the crimes committed many years ago, so Congress has not promised to organize a full vote.
However, because the country is facing a new system of racism, this racism is caused by the coronavirus pandemic and the deaths of George Floyd and other African Americans in a confrontation with the police. Exposed, so the measure won the support of the country’s most powerful Democrats. Including President Biden, Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Opinion polls show that the level of public support is increasing, although it is far from widespread support.
