During a speech at the historically black Clark Atlanta University on Thursday, 2020 White House contender Elizabeth Warren declared that it’s time to adopt Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s legislation to establish a Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans.
“Let’s be clear: It’s time for our government to have a full-blown national conversation about reparations,” Warren tweeted, along with a video of her remarks. “We must be honest about our history, and do what’s right so that our nation can begin to heal.”
“America was founded on principles of liberty and built on the backs of enslaved people,” Warren claimed. “[It’s] time to adopt H.R. 40, Sheila Jackson Lee’s reparations plan. [It’s] time to do what’s right, so that our nation can begin to heal,” Warren stated.
On the contrary, nothing will exacerbate America’s racial divide more than the fundamentally unfair and irrational boondoggle of reparations for slavery.
