    BET Founder Robert Johnson Calls for $14 Trillion of Reparations for Slavery

    Robert Johnson, founder of Black Entertainment Television, told CNBC on Monday the U.S. government should provide $14 trillion of reparations for slavery to help reduce racial inequality.


    The wealth divide and police brutality against blacks are at the heart of protests that have erupted across the nation following last week’s killing of George Floyd during an arrest in Minneapolis.


    “Now is the time to go big” to keep America from dividing into two separate and unequal societies, Johnson said on “Squawk Box.”


    “Wealth transfer is what’s needed,” he argued. “Think about this. Since 200-plus-years or so of slavery, labor taken with no compensation, is a wealth transfer. Denial of access to education, which is a primary driver of accumulation of income and wealth, is a wealth transfer.”


    Johnson, 74 made history as America’s first black billionaire when he sold BET to Viacom in 2001. Shortly after the sale, he started the investment firm The RLJ Cos. He’s no longer on the Forbes billionaires list.




    * “Now is the time to go big” to keep America from dividing into two separate and unequal societies, Robert Johnson said in a CNBC interview Monday.

    * Johnson said reparations would send the signal that white Americans acknowledge “damages that are owed” for the unequal playing field created by slavery and the decades since.

    * The wealth divide and police brutality against blacks are at the heart of protests that have erupted across the nation following last week’s killing of George Floyd during an arrest in Minneapolis.

    Good luck with that. Who do they expect to pay for this? My family has been in this country since at least the 1760’s, never owned slaves and fought in the Union Army. I’m not paying for shit.

    There’s actual slavery going on in Africa right now. Why doesn’t he focus on stopping that.

    Slavery is still active in the middle east and Africa. Never a word about that. Never a word about the african slave traders selling them t the US I'm sure like rival gangs those traders would sell their competition into slavery where they could. How many current African Americans are descended from slave traders or owners? Maybe they should be paying reparations.
