Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris upped the ante on her party’s empty promises of “Free Stuff!” by claiming that if she were elected, she’d invest $100 billion of taxpayer money into housing assistance for black families to help them buy homes.
Kamala Harris unveils new gimmick to buy black votes
Harris’ latest pandering scheme is part of the latest left-wing gimmick to buy black votes.
“After generations of discrimination, it’s time to give Black families a real shot at homeownership,” Harris said yesterday at Essence magazine’s Global Black Economic Forum (video below).
“If we eliminate racial wealth disparities in homeownership rates, median Black wealth would grow $32,113 per household, and the wealth gap between Black and white households would shrink 31%.”

Harris’ program would assist black Americans living in “red-lined” communities, or areas that the Home Owners’ Loan Corporation dissuaded lenders from investing in.
“Redlining has resulted in households of color receiving just 2% of the [Federal Housing Administration] loans expanded between 1934 to 1962, and formerly redlined neighborhoods are sites of deep racial disparities in home value and lending activity,” according to Harris’ campaign website.
‘Just how much of our money do you plan to spend to buy the presidency?”
Harris made the announcement after polls showed her gaining on Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden when she accused him of being a racist because he worked with segregationist Democrats decades ago.
Politicians typically work with other lawmakers whose views they don’t agree with to advance a common goal. That’s called “life.”
Many Twitter users mocked Harris for pandering to black voters by pointing out that her ancestors in Jamaica owned slaves decades ago.
One man noted: “Her Jamaican family decendants were slave owners…The historical accounts are so detailed that should Kamala Harris want to search out the families of the people her relative reportedly tortured, she would probably be able to find them, and pay reparations to them herself.”

Another person chimed in: “Translation: lower standards for black people because I don’t believe they can succeed without me stacking the deck for them in exchange for their votes.”
I believe Bill already tried it and the end result was 2008.

Black activists: Dems are trying to bribe black voters again
As BizPac Review reported, the Democrats have made no secret of their attempts to bribe voters with empty promises of free stuff.
In April, race-baiting Reverend Al Sharpton asked Democratic presidential candidates to promise that they’ll offer slavery reparations to black Americans if they were elected president.
Not surprisingly, the pandering Dem candidates all dutifully promised they would. However, black activists warned black voters to not fall for the “Blame Whitey” hustle because no one is getting reparations. They note that it’s merely a scam to con blacks into voting for Democrats.
Keep in mind that every single race has been enslaved at some point throughout history. Slavery is not just “a black thing.”
Former ACLU executive Michael Meyers said that Democrats have played the same “slavery reparations” card for decades, and have never delivered on their promises.
“It’s more of that Blame Whitey movement mania,” Meyers said. “It’s sheer racial rhetoric. That’s what you get at the Al Sharpton so-called ‘House of Justice.’ You have buffoonery. You have diversion, you have distraction…It is not to be taken seriously.”
By the same token, they would argue that Kamala Harris’ promise of $100 billion in housing aid to black Americans will be ignored the day after Election Day.

Black conservative: ‘Blacks, you are being lied to’
Michael Meyers echoed the sentiments of black conservative radio show host David Webb, who says the Democrats’ promise of slavery reparations is “pure pandering” for black votes.
“Blacks, you are being lied to if you believe that at any moment, any one of [these Democrats] will deliver reparations to you,” Webb said. “It’s not going to happen. It means nothing.”
Besides, Webb said President Trump has provided the best form of “reparation” anyway.
“Under President Trump, the best form of reparation has been laid out,” Webb added. “The best way out of poverty is a job. When you look at the employment rate in this country — when you look at teenage employment, black women, black males, college graduates, people of all ethnicities. That is the best form of reparations to move forward.”
