Billionaire Robert Johnston founder of Black Entertainment Television has called for white America to pay $14 Trillion dollars in slavery reparations to African Americans. He says this will close the economic inequality gap.

“You want a big idea: white America, what would happen if you said, ‘please forgive us and accept our apology. And by the way, we think we owe you what was taken from you for over 300 years of slavery, Jim Crow, segregation and denial of economic opportunity and rights,” Johnson said.
