Rapper Demands $4 Trillion In Reparations
The rapper who calls himself T.I. made a ridiculous call for reparations by saying that $44 trillion should be paid to all descendants of slaves in the United States. He made the idiotic demand on The Breakfast Club. “This is my goal,” T.I. declared. “My goal is to get every black person in America that’s a descendant of slavery one million dollars, at least. That’ll take about 44 trillion. So that’s my goal, so I’m working up on 44 trillion.” T.I. is also an actor who has appeared in mindless superhero movies like Ant‑Man and the Wasp.
T.I.has more than a hundred movie credits to his name and has an estimated net worth of $50 million. Despite his tremendous wealth, T.I. is acting like he’s not part of the ultra-rich 1%. He’s not the only rapper who is making calls for reparations and race-based appropriations. He is following in the heels of Ice Cube, who said that blacks should only purchase black-owned businesses.
“Everything black people spend money on, it should be a black company that provides it,” T.I. said “If we make up for 13 percent of this nation’s population, we should make up for 13 percent of the ownership of land. We should be representing at least 13, 14 percent on boards, financial institutions, and so on and so forth. That should be persistent or consistent throughout, but it is not.” He is echoing an ignorant argument that reeks of entitlement. He is demanding that African Americans should be given some financial or economic boosts with no questions asked.
The host of the show, Charlamagne tha God, is another racist who made some despicable comments against white people. He claims that white people are going crazy because they are losing power. He went on to make statements that if a white person said it against people of color, then he would get canceled for sure. But because he’s black, he gets to say all of the racist things that he can think of, and he doesn’t have to fear any kind of backlash.
T.I.’s call for reparations is not rooted in reality. The policy of reparation will be racist itself since it aims to give advantage to one race over the others.
