Sheriff David Clarke: Time to Forgive White People for Slavery

By    |   Thursday, 11 Dec 2014 10:42 PM

David Clarke, the African-American sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, says it is time to forgive white society for the sins of slavery.

Clarke, a frequent critic of President Barack Obama, said Thursday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File" that Obama has done nothing to heal race relations after his election as the first black president in 2008.

"Who would have thought that after the election of the first black president in the history of the United States that we would need a period of Reconstruction to try to put this country back together?" Clarke said.

Rather than try to heal racial rifts, Obama has taken sides, the sheriff said.

He noted that Attorney Gen. Eric Holder has said the country is too cowardly to talk about race.

"Well, I'm not, and I'm ready to engage him in that conversation," Clarke said. "We have to begin to ask when white society is going to be through paying for the sins of slavery. We're now punishing people for sins they didn't commit."
