55. Millennials on reparations

A 2016 poll found that more than half of millennials questioned say they are willing to at least consider the idea of paying reparations to the descendants of slaves.

The Exclusive Point Taken-Marist Poll was done in conjunction with the PBS debate series “Point Taken.”

Among generation Xers — Americans between the ages of 35-50 — 73 percent were against reparations. With millennials, a majority — 51 percent — say that reparations should be paid or they are unsure of whether reparations should be paid. Forty percent of millennials are in favor of reparations and 11 percent are unsure, compared with the 49 percent of the millennials questioned who said reparations should not be paid to slave descendants, AP reported.

Carlos Watson, who hosts “Point Taken.”
