    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.

Among African-Americans, 58 percent support paying reparations and 35 percent oppose them.

    Sen. Warren: US needs to address 'ugly history of racism'

    MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who said earlier this week that she supports reparations for black Americans who have been affected by slavery, told reporters Friday that the nation needs to confront its "ugly history of racism"...
    yahoo.com

    She said black families in America have been disadvantaged by "structural racism" and have only $5 in wealth for every $100 in wealth owned by the average white family.

    "Race matters and we need to say so," she said.

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

    Sen. Kamala Harris of California is attracting big crowds as she campaigns for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

    ...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

    The Reparations Primary

    There is a strange political conversation under way as the 2020 Democratic presidential primary gets under way, and it goes like this: One group of Democrats proposes something daffy, vague, and impractical, and another group of Democrats says,...
    news.yahoo.com

    ...“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.

    “‘Race-conscious policies’ are not a substitute for reparations, because they treat a symptom without acknowledging the cause,” Democratic hopeful Marianne Williamson—lesser known in the political realm, although well-known as a best-selling author and as a spiritual adviser to Oprah—tells Fortune.
