A black Democratic state senator who once called for Trump to be assassinated now says she wants reparations for former slaves. Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal criticized her own party for not properly appreciating the black community. Chappelle-Nadal called out white Democrats in particular including Senator Claire McCaskill and said there is "no difference" between them and Republicans because both parties failed black people.

"Neither one of them give a heck about the black community, only the votes," she said at the Senate floor during a tax bill debate. Chappelle-Nadal said she was motivated by the calls and emails she has received from her constituents. "When I'm getting a single mother of three children calling me trying to find a place to live because they don’t have a place to live, that’s what’s on my mind today and every single day."
It's not just her constituents who are calling, other top Democratic and Republican senators have called for Chappelle-Nadal to resign. Friday, she said she refuses to resign and even says her family is owed it's due for helping make the state what it is today. "Boone County, Missouri, in Callaway County, Missouri — what my family contributed to making the state what it is today is incredible, and my family deserves way more than what it is getting today," she said.

Chappelle-Nadal had made a post on Facebook saying, "I hope Trump is assassinated!" and quickly deleted it but not before the word had spread. Several of her own Democratic peers including Senator Claire McCaskill criticized her for spreading hate with the post and said she should resign. I guess calling for the assassination of a U.S. president isn't enough to get you fired these days. Chappelle-Nadal will run for a third term in six months, she will be facing Republican nominee Josh Hawley, the Missouri attorney general.

I totally agree!!!! The Democratic Party has never owned up to slavery. I'm on board for the Democratic Party to make reparations for slavery!
IT , IS REPROHENSIBLE / 2 EVEN CONSIDER - BEING IT WAS HER OWN - RACE - THAT / SOLD HER INTO SLAVERY IN THE FIRST PLACE ! , WHAT ABOUT - WHITE - VICTIMS OF FORCED HOMOSEXUAL RAPE / OF COURSE WE ALL KNOW THEIR ARE NEVER ANY WHITE - VICTIMS - AT ALL EVER - IS THERE -
It always seems to be about money. This type of talk creates racial division. Pres. Kennedy said "ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country." What can we
ALL do to help solve poverty and incarceration.
As a descendant of the nuch less valuable Scottish Slaves, I should demand 10; more than negro slaves, as they were fed and treated much better. The ONLY time they'd be seen by a doctor, is if a more expensive Niger was being seen. How ridiculous are you twisted psychopaths anyway? ??
For the feces species to worship the democratic party, that one idiocracy proves they are socially retarded
They have a 10% higher IQ average than their african counterparts, 80% vs 70% thanks to this country they hate so much, all the free college scholarships they could ask for ,affirmative action, free housing , they holds seats in all parts of government, even POTUS, and much more. Now they want free money for something that happened over 150 years ago? Try helping yourself, start by cleaning up your own neighborhoods instead of abandoning them and moving to ours, you have to work for what you want in life, there is no other way.
For all those who want reparations for slavery get a job and buy an airplane ticket and get going to where your ancestors came from in history and upon getting there burn your passport
Does'nt the federal government owe about $124 Billion to the former salve owners?
Plus the blacks habe beem compensated many many times over the last 50+ years alone.
I think this Black hog has eat up all her welfare checks now she wants someone else to feed her fat A^^
