If there is a vehicular accident, a person could get compensation for doctor's bills. They could all get compensation for nebulous "pain and suffering".

And while I am personally opposed to "reparations", I am interested at how right-wingers could explain why blacks shouldn't get compensation regarding actual atrocities their forefathers experienced, as opposed to what these tea party groups experienced...
I haven't looked at it in depth but I would assume it covers:
- Taxes paid while Lerner and crew held up their tax exempt status.
- Legal fees above and beyond the norm incurred while fighting Lerner and crew.
- Legal fees incurred while fighting to expose Lerner and crew's illegal tactics.

Do you really not see the difference between a group receiving a settlement for illegal actions committed upon them directly and a person wanting a monetary settlement for legal acts committed upon a relative that died a hundred years ago? BTW, I'm not trying to justify what was done during slavery, only stating that it was legal at the time and didn't happen to anybody alive today.

Trump ordered the IRS to make a donation to conservative groups.

Jimbo, it's not the race card. At some point, people can't just whine and cry "race card" any time "black" is mentioned.

I personally am against reparations. I also find this "generous settlement" story to be b.s.
My question is how can anybody be against reparations but for this payment to the tea party.

Sounds like it. Just as he ordered AC of Engineers to award PR's electrical grid job to a company with 2 employees who's owner incidentally donated to his campaign.

Let's see the evidence Trump ordered the IRS to make a donation to Conservative groups. What's that, no evidence again.

The Federal government reached a settlement with groups targeted by the IRS. You remember the IRS Obama declared didn't have a smidgen of corruption while the investigation was underway.

Obama simply turned his back on the IRS corruption, leaving the mess for the Trump administration to clean up.

Then why bring up race?

The thread has nothing to do with reparations for blacks.
