You must ask the question, why did Annie Linskey of the Washington Post not include African Americans in the title below ... :facepalm: But does mention us within her article :wow:


Elizabeth Warren opens door to Reparations for Native Americans



Warren is one of four Democratic presidential hopefuls who have said in recent days that they are open to providing some type of reparations to African Americans who are descendants of people who were enslaved in the United States, although they have offered varying levels of details about how the goal would be achieved.

:great: ... Nevertheless, 68% of White Americans oppose, while yet another 35% of Black Americans oppose, but thankfully, 58% of Black Americans support Reparations.


Senator Elizabeth Warren backs Reparations for black Americans

A 2016 poll by Marist College commissioned by WGBH radio station in Boston found that 68 percent of Americans do not think reparations should be paid to the descendents of slaves, compared with 26 percent who said they should. Among African-Americans, 58 percent support paying reparations and 35 percent oppose them.

Kamala Harris attracts crowds in Iowa, but leaves questions about what she believes


https://news.yahoo.com/kamala-harris-iowa-141106195.html
...Here, too, Harris seemed to deliberately avoid specifics. She opened with remarks about the “need to restore truth and justice,” though what she meant was unclear.

Really? Reparations is problematic? :facepalm:


The Democratic Party is trying to gift reelection to Trump
I don’t quite know what a handbasket is, but the Democratic Party is in one headed toward electoral hell with its talk of socialism and reparations


Democratic socialist ideas appear to be making significant headway in the party. The Democratic part is fine; the socialism part is not...

Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren are wrong. We shouldn’t pay reparations for slavery


There are a lot of objections that can be raised to reparations, starting with the price tag, which would run into the trillions. Slavery was a great moral wrong, but its primary victims are now dead and cannot be given recompense...

The Reparations Primary


https://news.yahoo.com/reparations-primary-175016242.html
...“Of course that’s daffy, vague, and impractical — but at least they started a conversation!” This is said in the tone kindergarten teachers use with toddlers who test the maxim that there is no such thing as a dumb question. It’s something to see: a political party condescending to itself.

What Exactly Are Slavery Reparations? 2020 Democrats Are Trying to Figure That Out


https://news.yahoo.com/exactly-slavery-reparations-2020-democrats-223710269.html
