Bernie And Hillary Have The Same Position On Slavery Reparations, But Guess Which One The Atlantic Smeared For It

There was a real humdinger of a hatchet-job on Bernie Sanders published by The Atlantic on Tuesday that, were it read in isolation, would lead you to believe that between Sanders and Hillary Clinton, the former is worthy of special scorn when it comes to race relations. Seizing upon Sanders’ response last week to a question from Fusion TV about reparations to African Americans for centuries of slavery, Ta-Nehisi Coates argues that “Sanders’ radicalism has failed in the ancient fight against white supremacy.”

Asked if he favored reparations at the Iowa Brown and Black Presidential Forum, Sanders said no, and proceeded to explain what he does support to help African Americans get out of poverty:

Why Precisely Is Coates Bashing Sanders?


... Here Coates tips his hand. Coates doesn’t actually believe that Sanders can make good on any of his campaign promises, racially motivated or not, but Coates wants Sanders to earnestly pretend that he will. In other words, Coates wants Sanders, in effect, to peddle illusions. Why? What would that achieve? Haven’t black Americans had enough of being lied to? How would being lied to change anything for blacks in this country? It wouldn’t, and that’s the point. Coates does not believe things for blacks will change, even if they should. Thus Coates is validated in his narrative that blacks are perpetual victims of a vicious history ...

*smh*

Yes, Bernie does go real radical with ideas that he knows will never get though Congress, so why not try reparations? Because, he'd lose white voters. And, Obama knew that as well. And, he wasn't persecuted for it.

Not saying that I don't think we deserve them...I think we do!

Right ...

Here's the thing though, no President can do it. Coates should know this. We the people will have to prevail upon the Government to gain Reparations. So, until we become real serious about what's due us, its not going to happen; but I'm never giving up or conceding like Ta-Nehisi.

Coates disappoints me with his pessimistic attitude. It's as though his optimism is seriously lacking.

Right. It can happen. But, it will have to come via the Supreme Court, right, not the President?
