Declaring that it is unfair that whites have more money than minorities, Sen. Cory (Spartacus) Booker (D-NJ) has concocted a plan to hand wads of cash to deserving black kids. Dubbing these giveaways opportunity accounts, Booker boasted that theres no telling what these young people are capable of doing if only they had the money to do it.
Under Bookers scheme minority youths would be eligible for no strings grants of up to $50,000 they could use for wealth-building purposes. Most of the investment opportunities in the ghetto require cash. Well be giving these youngsters cash they could use to buy valuable merchandise for resale in smaller lots, or tools to obtain money from strangers, or to go to college to major in black or LGBTQ studies. The possibilities are virtually limitless.
The Senator contrasted his plan with the sterile programs of yesteryear. Unlike the burdensome obligation to pay back money from student or small business loans, these grants are theirs to keep and use as they please. And since many of the business options available will operate in the informal economy where there are no taxes or legal impediments every dollar can be reinvested in their businesses.

Going forward he should always be referred to as Senator Cory Booker (D-Thrace).
How about money to attend a Zero rally?
