I don't think it will end up being much of an issue, and if it does, will most likely thin the herd quickly.

"So far, a handful of candidates have expressed some level of support for reparations: Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro have called the issue important or acknowledged how history supports calls for restitution.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) has been running on a policy that would help close the racial wealth gap, while Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has declined to support reparations but argues that his focus on policies helping distressed communities in general would particularly aid black communities.

The candidate most fervently backing reparations is Marianne Williamson, a self-help guru and spiritual adviser who wants to set aside $100 billion to $500 billion for a reparations program.". Vox

o NEW: Remember how the GOP candidates tried to be as extreme as possible during the primaries?

480ute icon NEW: Agree, but some of these yahoos are making appearances on national platforms, which ultimately impacts public perception of progressives as a whole.

UTAuley icon NEW: My view of reparations is quite simple, and apparently shortsighted/offensive to some: If you personally were ever kept as a slave, then your former master or his estate must pay you. (nm)
