    I'm not sure if you're aware but the title says 2020 democratic candidates thread. Hillary ran and lost in the 2016 election. I can see how that might be confusing. Hth.

    Hey since you mentioned Hillary, I remember when she crushed Bernie as he was presiding over a campaign full of sexual harassment and misogyny.

    Bret Stephens knocked this op-ed out of the park for the NYT

    But the idea that people can be judged as individuals based on the economic class to which they belong is one of the foulest in history, matching if not exceeding in its murderous consequences the legacies of racism and colonialism combined. When Sanders inveighs against billyinaehs (millyinaehs being presumably no longer as odious to him today as they were just a few years ago) he is engaged in a form of stereotyping that is no less bigoted, or dangerous, for being aimed at so few.

    I felt like I was pretty specific when I said not reparations. I felt it was easier saying which word I didn't think should be used as opposed to listing everything it could be called. I hope that this clears up any misunderstandings.

    No need to troll.

    Major Democratic candidate holds a big rally and nobody shows up. So he delays the start time so they can go beg/pay people to attend. Pretty sad.

    Nothing else needs to be added to the post. And nothing was.

    Pod save the people touched a bit on this. The estimated costs are between $4.9-$15 trillion.

    There are an estimated 43 million african americans in the USA, so that's $114,000 on the low end and $350,000 on the high end per person.

    To me, that means we have a gigantic problem that we do need to address.

    So I am for it.

    You actually immigrated here. Its a terrible, racist place.

    I dont see how I, a minority, and the decendant of people who came to the US after slavery should pay anyone.

    How about just states vote on it and if they want to they can pay African americans in their state?

    Yes, I migrated here so what’s your point? Or are you still herp derping about me criticizing society while participating in said society? I never stated that I should be paid reparations so not sure where you’re going with that but please feel free to share what me being an immigrant has anything to do with what I said.

    Now I know you have no interest in an honest discussion but I’ll put this out for others that may want to have this discussion.

    It’s not just about receiving a payment, it’s much bigger than that. The US government took purposeful action to oppress blacks well beyond slavery and even today it’s happening. As to your nonsense about being a descendants of immigrants and not having to pay for sins of the past, you should really educate yourself on US history because you should know that your ancestors were lifted up on the backs of blacks.

    I'd rather focus the money and resources into fixing systemic racism than cutting people checks but I've not read much into the argument otherwise.

    That’s the crux of most arguments, this country needs to take an introspective look at its sins and analyze the impact that it had on people.
