Slave descendent takes Dems, Biden to task over reparations, says Black Americas ‘just give away our vote’

A congressional candidate descended from slaves took aim at President Joe Biden’s lack of effort toward the “captured electorate” of the black community, especially as it pertained to reparations.

Gregg Marcel Dixon, a teacher, is taking another shot at unseating incumbent Rep. James Clyburn as the Democratic representative for South Carolina’s 6th district. With a campaign heavily focused on reparations, he recently spoke with Fox News Digital to share his opinion that “Reparations is a debt that is due,” to the tune of $2.8 million.

“This country owes reparations to black Americans and if this country had done to you what it had done to black Americans, I would be right there fighting for you to get what you owed as well,” he said.

However, the candidate, who was raised in the home of his grandmother who in turn had been raised knowing family members that had been enslaved, charged that Biden wouldn’t take action because “he doesn’t have to.”

“Black Americans don’t get any of that besides fish fries and feel-good dances and wearing Converse and listening to rap music — that’s all we get, and we allow that to the bottom, and we just give away our vote. So he has no incentive to do for us because he knows no matter how awful he is, he is going to still get the majority of the black vote,” Dixon told Fox News Digital referring to the voting bloc as a “captured electorate.”

He has also expressed concerns about the priorities of Clyburn, calling attention to a bill aimed to help the Catawba Indian Nation, but not blacks.

By comparison, Dixon sang the praises of former President Donald Trump, despite not seeing a proposal through to completion.

“Donald Trump had plans where he was going to invest at least $500 billion into the black American community, he was going to start the Department of African-American Affairs to focus specifically on our needs, he was talking about the damage that illegal immigration causes to black Americans.”

“It’s way more than what we’re getting now and what any other presidential candidate has offered,” he went on, calling for the re-establishment of the Freedman’s Bureau, an agency created to assist freed slaves after the Civil War, via executive order.

The candidate suggested the bureau “has an unfinished job of repairing the great inequities that we see here in America, where black Americans have been in this country longer than nearly all other ethnic groups. And yet we’re to the bottom in terms of land and wealth and that’s because the job of reconstruction never finished.”

While leftist governments across the country have setup reparations committees to determine a figure and the means to payout, most notably in California where slavery had always been outlawed, Dixon believes the issue is a federal matter resolved by $2.8 million bonds for only those black Americans descended from slavery to “be paid monthly per interest on the cash bonds and once the bonds have matured.”

He even argued such a plan would benefit the economy in the longterm as “Every penny we get is going right back to this nation.”

“It is not to fight against racism, it is not to punish white people, it is not race-based,” the candidate added.

Fox News Digital noted Dixon is currently suing Clyburn, accusing the lawmaker of conspiring to force his termination from his teaching position.
