Trent Lott, Call Home

Why Should We Be Glad He's Still in the Senate?

"The land that we own now compared to the land we owned 100 years ago, or even 50 years ago, is minuscule," said West, who has seen land-fraud claims at the county level. "Most of the families who owned the land were uprooted many years ago, and the laws were geared for the state to take people's land. In many cases, fraud was involved in taking the land, and we only got the full right to vote 35 years ago. We've been robbed of everything for the most part, and now they say we're on an 'equal footing.' "

Maybe reparations in Mississippi should start with Lott's Senate seat.
