Blacks Even Refuse To Pay For Their Own Drinks: Reparations Happy Hour......

Bar runs 'Reparations Happy Hour' and asks white people to donate money before handing $10 bills to black, brown and indigenous patrons 

An Oregon activist has created a 'Reparations Happy Hour,' asking white people to donate money — as a symbolic gesture — to be doled out to people of color. 'Reparations Happy Hour' creator Cameron Whitten, 27, of Portland, Oregon, threw the inaugural event on May 21 at local bar Backyard Social. The event's invitation, which was shared on social media, stipulated 'Reparations for black, brown and indigenous people. Paid for by whites folks.' According to event organizers, $10 cash would be given out to attendees as 'reparations,' paid for in part by the donations of white people who were specifically not invited to attend the happy hour. 'White people can show up and support by GIVING reparations. Instead of physically attending, your presence will be felt through your active financial support for healing, leadership, and community building within Portland’s black, brown, and indigenous community,' the event's listing stated.
