During the Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee’s widely criticized hearing on reparations Wednesday, two sensible speakers espoused their educated opinion on why the idea of handing out reparations to black Americans is a bad idea. Both individuals were black.

One of the two speakers, Quillette columnist and Columbia University student Coleman Hughes, delivered a particularly intelligent lecture on how reparations would only turn today’s black Americans into “victims.”

“Reparations by definition are only given to victims, so the moment you give me reparations, you’ve made me into a victim without my consent,” he said. “Not just that, you’ve made 1/3 of black Americans who poll against reparations into victims without their consent, and black Americans have fought too long for the right to define themselves to be spoken for in such a condescending manner.”

In response to Hughes’ thoughtful argument — keep in mind the quote above amounts to just a sliver of his entire statement — a shocking number of his own peers in the black community rushed to their keyboards to disparage him as nothing but a “coon” and “Uncle Tom.”

Leading the pack was Rae Sanni, an obscure comedian who writes content for HBO’s “A Black Lady Sketch Show”:

She wasn’t alone in spouting such ignorant, hateful rhetoric (*LANGUAGE WARNING*).


Despite what Rohan, who’s clearly not even black, asserted in the stunningly ignorant tweet above, Quillette is not a “racist white supremacist rag.” It’s an online magazine that’s read by some of the most prolific intellectuals and scientists of the modern age, including but not limited to Dr. Jordan Peterson, award-winning biologist Jerry Coyne and conservative commentator Ben Shapiro.

Meanwhile, prior to the hearing Wednesday, a black columnist for The New York Times accused Hughes of being a know-nothing ingrate with no relevant qualifications.



The tweets were posted by Jamelle Bouie, a virulently far-left activist and race-baiter who’s been celebrated by the media as a voice of reason and intelligence, despite his history of ignorant remarks.

Former NFL star Burgess Owens, the other anti-reparations speaker at the hearing Wednesday, has faced similar taunts and jeers for his belief that it’s Democrats who owe blacks reparations.

“I do believe in restitution. Let’s point to the party that was part of slavery, KKK, Jim Crow, that has killed over 40 percent of our black babies, 20 million of them. State of California, 75 percent of our black boys can’t past standard reading and writing test, a Democratic state,” he said.

“Let’s pay reparation. Let’s pay restitution. How about a Democratic Party pay for all the misery brought to my race.”


Just like Hughes, Burgess is now being disparaged on social media as a a “coon,” an “Uncle Tom,” a “tap dancing fool” and a “house negro.”


For clarification, a “house negro” was a black slave who’d earned entry into a plantation master’s inner clique and would therefore look down upon the “field negros” who were still collecting cotton.

And as a final reminder, remember that the Democrat party is the party of slavery, as noted by Owens, and note that it’s folks like Bouie, Rohan and Sanni who’ve been looking down their noses at Owens and Hughes for allegedly not being good or black enough to speak at a reparations hearing …
