100 Facts On Reparations For Native Black Americans


99. Bernie Sanders was applauded by the NAACP when he explained why he’s against reparations

Speaking at an NAACP convention, Sen. Bernie Sanders said he felt there was a better way to deal with the trauma caused by slavery than reparations.

“Here’s my fear about reparations, and I understand the issue, and I’m on board the legislation that will study the issue,” he said. “Here’s my fear: The Congress gives the African American community a $20,000 check, and says, ‘Thank you, that took care of slavery, we don’t have to worry about anything more.’ I think that’s wrong, I want to build, rebuild the distressed communities in America,” Sanders said.

The crowd erupted in applause. Sanders added that supports Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s H.R. 40 Bill to study reparations.
