Dem Kamala Harris is running for president against Trump in 2020. But it appears she plans to represent one group more than the rest of the population. She claims she is in support of reparations.

During an interview with a New York radio show called “Breakfast Club”, she was asked about reparations and where she stands on the issue.

“Well look, I think that we have got to address that again, it’s back to the inequities. There, through–look, America has a history of 200 years of slavery. We had Jim Crow. We had legal segregation in America for a very long time. The Voting Rights Act was only strong for 50 years and then they wiped it out with this United States Supreme Court in the Shelby decision, to the point that 22 states immediately thereafter put in place laws that one court found were crafted with surgical precision to have black people not be able to vote.”

So we’ve got to recognize, back to that earlier point, people aren’t starting out on the same base, in terms of their ability to succeed and so we have got to recognize that and give people a lift up. And, there are a number of ways to do it. Part of my initiative again around the ‘Lift Act’ is that same point–you lifting people up who are making less than a hundred thousand dollars a year. What I want to do about rent is the same thing. What we need to do around education and understanding disparities, what we need to do around HBCUs. But we have a history of racism in America.

Charlamagne asked again, “So you are for some type of reparations?”

“Yes I am, yes I am,” Harris responded.”

The video is a bit long but you can watch it here.

Slavery has long since ended. It has been abolished. The Civil Rights movement put everyone on the same footing, even if it took a bit to be fully recognized. Americans today are not the people that had slaves and the black folk that live here have never been slaves. So why would anyone be looking for reparations at this point? Why would a presidential candidate be in favor of something like this?
