"The single largest grouping of people who are descendants of slaveholders is African Americans because of the institutionalization of rape of Black Women during slavery. Most Black Americans could say we're descendants of slaveholders." ~@jelani9 on @TheBeatWithAri w/ @AriMelber
It is obscene for @senatemajldr to compare himself to Barack Obama with respect to descendants of slaveholders. The foundation of the question of reparations is to repair the damage that was done, beginning there & passing down through successive generations. ~@jelani9 #TheBeat
It is obscene inversion of a very traumatic and morally troubling aspect of American history. Barack Obama has inherited race as a headwind; something that had to be navigated in his life. MitchMcConnell has inherited a tailwind. ~@jelani9 on McConnell comparing himself to Obama

Corsi passed the request along to conservative author Ted Malloch in London"

Shockingly, Giuliani was lying: Mueller said no such thing about not indicting Trump.
