Republicans Consider Reparations (GOP).

(ThyBlackMan.com) Republican state legislatures can reserve THC licensing exclusively for African Americans quickly, before the federal Democrats can legalize “weed” nationally for their cronies.

This proposal has been sent to 281 Black legislators in 17 “red” States where emails were accepted: OH, SC, FL, IN, AR, OK, TX, LA, MS, WI, MO, WV, IA, UT, AZ, NE, KY. See legislator list below. Some states obstruct contacts, listed below.

“Forty acres and a mule” would be worth about $125,000 today, at an average $3,000 per acre of farmland nationwide – about the price
of a young couple’s “starter home.” This would be a reasonable reparation for the head of a household. The issue of THC licenses (for recreational marijuana) exclusively to African Americans would enable those individuals to amass that much wealth in a reasonable amount of time. Regulating the volume, the packaging, the pricing, the quality, and then restricting sales to in-State supplies could be arranged to satisfy this goal during the limited duration of the license. Then, another African American can get the same opportunity. (Yes. THC items can be “stamped” for in-state commerce only, just like liquor and tobacco. This should not become an inter-state commerce. Move quickly on a “RESOLUTION FOR REPARATIONS WITH IN-STATE ‘THC’ COMMERCE.”)

Distinct licenses can be issued for cultivation, for processing, for packaging, for wholesale distribution, and for retailing. This way,
lots of people can participate a little bit at a time, thus building a strong middle class. The number of licenses issued in each district can be limited, but trade should be allowed openly across districts within a state. “Bootleggers” must be prosecuted for unlicensed dealing, so that the legitimate licensees can generate their fair reparations.

Individuals must qualify for licensing. Each state can determine its own fair means of qualifying the applicants, but the determinations
will surely be subject to the courts’ standards of fairness. Qualifications are likely to include: American citizenship, African
ancestry, standards of character, of credit, of business acumen, and of ready resources including borrowing, leasing, etc. Certain
prohibitions will apply, probably the inclusion of non-African partners or creditors, such derivative or non-natural participants as corporations, trusts and partnerships. (But, how could anyone ever prove that they are an African American?)

African American legislators in “red” states are likely to find their fellow (Republican) legislators agreeable to this concept.
Legislatures dominated by Democrats might be less inclined to offer real reparations to African Americans, as this would be inconsistent
with their traditional African relations over the past 400 years. This reality enables African Americans to build good working relations with Republicans in their states, while maintaining good relations with the federal Democrats. How fortunate it is to be black in a “red” state! This could be the beginning of an advantageous swing vote.

Unfortunately, the Democrats in the U.S. House have already moved to decriminalize THC use – recreational marijuana – just this past
December. It will not be long before they try to license their cronies across the nation. But the cause of African American reparations is legitimate, and the “stamped” restraint of trade across state lines is a viable precedent in liquor and tobacco. This can be done, if African American state legislators move quickly.

If you need some help with this reparation plan, the “teflon” wing of the Republican Party is ready to offer you the same sub-rosa muscle that enabled President Reagan to stifle the Democrat’s “Cultural Revolution” of the 1960s and ‘70s. The teflon case originated in Columbus, Ohio. For more information on that, visit my Twitter.com address: @1983teflon. There, tweet #25 will encourage you to consider the political autonomy that unarmed Constables might offer your neighborhoods when elected in a very local level. I can send you a legislative model for that on request. Your “law and order” legislature might be amenable to the concept, although the Democrats opposed it in 2016, in favor of the BLM’s approach. Please also visit my Video #6 “Sue for Peace” out of tweet #60. I pledge to
you my teflon support in this pursuit, in the name of the Hon. James A. Rhodes, “the Guv.”
