Ta-Nehisi Coates Gives ‘Grim Reaper’ Mitch McConnell Epic Lesson on Reparations – WATCH

*Ta-Nehisi Coates sent a line-drive straight at turkey neck Mitch McConnell (R-KY), the Senate Majority Leader, also known as the “Grim Reaper.”

Coates’ action directed at McConnell came during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on reparations for slavery.

Coates got right down to business from jump when he responded directly to McConnell’s claim that the government should not pay out reparations to black Americans because slavery ended more than 150 years ago.

Coates remined McConnell and people in general that the United States was still paying out pensions to the families of Civil War soldiers “well into this century” and he said that the government still honors treaties it signed even though no one who signed them is still alive today.

The “Between the World and Me” author also made a solid point about the horrific treatment of black Americans did not simply end after the Emancipation Proclamation.

“When it ended, this country could have extended its hallowed principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to all, regardless of color,” he said. “But America had other principles in mind. And so, for a century after the Civil War, black people were subjected to a relentless campaign of terror — a campaign that extended well into the lifetime of Majority Leader McConnell.”

He then went on to list racial atrocities that did occur in McConnell’s lifetime.

“He was alive for the electrocution of George Stinney,” he said. “He was alive for the blinding of Isaac Woodard. He was alive to witness kleptocracy in his native Alabama and a regime premised on electoral theft. Majority Leader McConnell cited civil rights legislation yesterday — as well he should, as he was alive to witness the harassment, jailing, and betrayal of those responsible for that legislation by a government sworn to protect them.”
