Speaking before Congress on Wednesday, NFL legend Burgess Owens slammed Democrats for their handling of the nationwide African American community, suggesting the left should pay reparations.
“I used to be a Democrat until I did my history, and found out the misery that that party brought to my race,” said Owens, going on to detail several examples.
Owens continued, “I do not believe in reparations,” which he said “points to a certain race, a certain color, and points them as evil and points the other race, my race, as one that not only becomes racist, but also beggars.”
“I do believe in restitution,” said Owens, explaining, “Let’s point to the party that was part of slavery, KKK, Jim Crow, that has killed over 40% of our black babies, 20 million of them.”
“How about the Democratic Party pay for all the misery brought to my race,” asked Owens.
