The NAACP and 27 other liberal groups on Thursday warned Democratic leaders not to back off of plans for higher taxes because higher taxes would improve racial justice. The groups, which included the Movement for Black Lives and the National Immigration Law Center, made their case for large tax hikes on corporations and the wealthy in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic chairmen of the House and Senate‘s tax committees. “We write to make clear how important it is to communities of color that Congress enact a robust budget reconciliation package of at least $3.5 trillion in investments


Hold up! We let them destroy our statues and rewrite our history, and even added Juneteemf as a federal holiday honoring the many contributions of The Black Community. Now they say merely the first step toward a total confiscation of our assets?

This country (us taxpayers) have paid $Trillions on dozens of programs for every group of "justice warriors", so now we need more spending? How about managing the $30 Trillion in debt and cut the waste? Apparently this is too much to ask of the elitist government officials.

And of course neither the democrats or blacks realize that raising taxes means the companies will simply raise prices and everyone, black and white, will pay more and in the end they get nowhere.

All is either racism, global warming, or trying to get around established laws already on the books. The oppression of government AGAINST the individual who seeks to make his own way against the outside forces controlling the entrenched politicians who are above the rabble of the "little people".

Apparently, blacks are not against using White earned money, even if some of those Whites may have had slave owners in their ancestry! When the chicoms or the muzzies take over that cities, blacks are going to be in a real bind.

Stop calling it racial justice. Call it what it is. Payola. It is a transfer of money to some specific group of persons. Name them Explain what they have done to deserve the money. I am tired of anonymous groups. Let us know who, specifically, will receive the funds. And what for.

Raising taxes on corporations only means that black people will pay more for their products. We all will. It won't improve racial justice in any manner. NAACP and these other idiots expect raising taxes will lead to more entitlements for their race. In effect, their request is just another sign of their racist attitudes. They expect white people and white corporations to bail them out.

Racial justice. For all the racist hypocrites out there, racial justice has already been served. No country in the world has done more for blacks than this country. People are sick and tired of hearing their bullsh**. Their own people sold them into slavery over a hundred years before our country was founded. On top of all the benefits they received from this country there is zero gratitude. They have destroyed major cities in this country through their culture of violence and people are afraid to talk about. Look at NYC, Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, Oakland, Newark and others. Fact is democrats and black leaders can't handle the truth. In fact, in many of those cities, blacks are in charge of those cities and still won't take responsibility for the violence they created. End it already. Do you get it yet. Freakin morons..

This game they play got tiring long ago. Nobody has to "prod" demoncrats to raise taxes. They want to raise taxes. They never get enough taxes. They run these articles pretending that there won't be racial justice unless they get more of our taxpayer money to throw at the problem. What is the point of spending money and investing in black communities if they are just going to burn them down again, anyway?

Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng has claimed Britain will avoid an energy emergency in the coming months despite warnings of a 'black swan event' after Russia was accused of rigging gas prices. Kwarteng said he did 'not expect supply emergencies this winter' as he prepared for talks with chief executives of the UK's largest energy suppliers and operators to discuss the global gas situation today. It comes amid warnings of a 'black swan event', an unpredictable episode with often severe consequences, after global gas prices surged due to high global demand, maintenance issues and lower solar and wind energy output.

A cost of living crisis will see average households' bills soar by more than £1,500 a year, experts warn today. Families are now on the cusp of the biggest spending squeeze in nearly a decade as bills and prices rise relentlessly.

General McKenzie calls it a “tragic mistake.” Four days after the August 29th strike Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called the strike “righteous.” General McKenzi says he takes “full responsibility”, yet he retains his position. No one is being held to account.
