Rapper T.I. is asking for $1 million in reparation pay for every descendant of slavery. This sums up to a jaw-dropping $44 trillion.
T.I. guested on “The Breakfast Club,” hosted by Charlamagne tha God and outlined his reparations goal.
“This is my goal. My goal is to get every black person in America that’s a descendant of slavery one million dollars, at least. That take about $44 trillion. So that’s my goal, so I’m working up on $44 trillion,” he said.
T.I. also said he wants equal representation for Blacks, adding: “Everything black people spend money on, it should be a black company that provides it. If we make up for 13% of this nation’s population, we should make up for 13% of the ownership of land. We should be representing at least 13%, 14% on boards [of] financial institutions, and so on and so forth. That should be persistent or consistent throughout, but it is not.”
T.I. likewise claimed that poverty, crime, mass incarceration, and drug addiction in black communities all resulted from slavery.
