Hollywood, CA – Forget 40 acres and a mule, The Game wants 40 acres and Lamborghini for reparations.
“It look like 40 acres and a Lamborghini,” he said. “Forty acres and a Lambo. I’m down with that. It don’t matter what it does because the country was built on the backs of slavery. I don’t even think I can vote. I’m a felon, bro. Let’s make sure felons can vote. ‘Cause you made a mistake you can’t vote? You’re not a citizen? I can still go to jail in America, right?”
The House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held the hearing at Capitol Hill on June 19 to discuss the “legacy of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, its continuing impact on the community and the path to restorative justice.”
A main topic of conversation was H.R. 40, legislation that would “establish a commission to study the consequences and impacts of slavery and make recommendations for reparations proposals.”
New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker, writer Ta-Nehisi Coates and actor Danny Glover all testified before the House panel.
