Native Americans & Black Farmers Compensated With $4.2 Billion Dollars By The U.S Congress For Discrimination

CBS News – The House on Tuesday passed landmark legislation to pay for some $4.6 billion in settlements with American Indians and black farmers who say they faced discrimination and mistreatment from the government.

Lawmakers voted 256-152 to send the measure to President Barack Obama, whose administration brokered the settlements over the past year. Continue Reading…

Congress has passed a bill to settle discrimination and mistreatment cases filed against them on behalf of Native Americans and Black Farmers.

The Black Farmers were given $1.2 billion dollars from a lawsuit that was settled 11 years ago in 1999.

Native Americans were given $3.4 billion dollars for Indian water-rights violations and royalties owed to them.

Iowa Republican Steve King expressed resentment towards the legislation. He compared the settlements to ‘slavery reparations’.

Steve King’s exact words were “We are not gonna pay slavery reparations in the United States Congress…That war’s been fought. That was over a century ago. That debt was paid for in blood and it was paid for in the blood of a lot of Yankees, especially. And there’s no reparations for the blood that paid for the sin of slavery.”

Bossip – SMH… Tyra Banks has fu*ked up in a major way by booking a teenage guest to appear on her show without gaining the parental permission first!

Tyra Banks in her finest form

Supermodel-turned-TV personality Tyra Banks has been named in a $3 million lawsuit filed against the producers of her talk show after a teenage “sex addict” appeared on the program without her mother’s consent. Continue Reading…

Tyra Banks is involved in a $3 million lawsuit against her TV show’s producers. Beverly Mclendon claims her daughter appeared on a show promoting her as a “15-Year Old Sex Addict” without her consent.

The Tyra Banks Show is an edgy talk show with a focus on unbecoming female behavior and an occasional focus on unbecoming ‘black’ female behavior. 

The Tyra Show does an excellent job at exposing the real intentions behind immature & foolish female behavior. Women and people in general don’t like that.

I don’t even really like Tyra Banks but I like her show and I hope this lawsuit doesn’t influence the authenticity of it.

She should expect these type of things.
