Once slavery was abolished, blacks were given equal opportunity, right? Is that what you are saying?Slavery was abolished over a hundred years ago. I was not around, you weren't around. There is zero basis for making people today pay/receive something that they were not directly affected by.
The fact that Democrat candidates are openly advocating for reparations shows how little clue they have about how they appear to the general voter.
"Vote for us so we can take away your money and give a handout to a specific voter block."
"Vote for us so we can take other people's money and give it to you."
I agree, it’s not a great thing for Democrats to be making a focus of their campaign, though. Reforming the prison system would be an excellent way to help black communities without ostracizing working white voters. Everyone is trying to repeat the Obama performance, but it’s just not going to happen.
