    No the story of America is "reperations" something you needed, or I am sure could've used before becaming president. At least then looking too the future of your lovely family. You know it could've helped you, while in school. "it's no longer a black, or white thing" It would bring us all closer, and what Allah SWT wants a would close too paradises. Nontheless, having a mother of privilage may have made things a bit easier for you. This country you claim to love, will never get right until reparations for slavery are met "demanded". It isn't question of racism, for it would help America, and the families, many are of mixed heritage any way black and white etc.. It's is whats due. The longer this government waits, the harder it may be. If the gov. can't pay everyone, then pay a few at a time, "Lottery, and or Social Security Number" I can actually see true trickle down economics with this. I can go on an on. However, I had major back surgery and must lay down, plus you know just as much as I, if not more on this subject. I wanted to become a lawyer, then a political opponent, maybe president. As the oldest son, without a father, I had to drop out of hih school, to help my mother with feeding, colthing of my siblings... I know that you were the president for everyone, but you knew deep down, your higher power put you in place to do what you do. President elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, they'll need your help with this issue. He (Almighty) has given redemption to make it right. Do the right thing. Insha Allah

    @ian dallen Yeah, honestly I agree. Especially with like, SNL making all those Trump jokes, which are so politically biased it's not even funny anymore. Sorry for coming at you, I just think that Trevor is so much better than some of these low-ball Trump jokes. But he's basically a free-target. It's all part of the game, ig.😂

    Here is my problem with Media and Failed comedians turned into PC police commissioners disguised as a talk show, is that Barack Obama killed tens of thousands of innocent women and children all over the Middle East for Oil but he is loved and adored. While on the other hand Trump is the most hated president ever and he is making peace deals that seemed impossible, took troops out of foreign wars and remain as peacekeepers. It seems to me that MSM are so obsessed with race that if your a Biracial person who are not held to the same standard as white people and that is also racist.
