A black Missouri state senator who said she hoped President Donald Trump would be assassinated is now calling for reparations for blacks because of slavery.
During the debate over a tax bill on April 17, Democrat Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal (University City) took to the Senate floor at the state capital in Jefferson City to demand that the state pass a reparations policy. Chappelle-Nadal also criticized members of her own party for not joining in her effort, the Kansas City Star reported.
Chappelle-Nadal insisted that Democrats like Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) are "no different" than Republicans who generally oppose reparations for slavery.
"Neither one of them give a heck about the black community, only the votes," Chappelle-Nadal said during her comments on the floor of the Senate.
Chappelle-Nadal was motivated by emails and phone calls from constituents on the issue, saying, "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."
The senator also insisted that black Missourians--including her own ancestors--don't get enough for their past work, saying, "In 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."
