She told the crowd at the National Action Network convention that such a generational attitude was the “underpinning” of a list of policies that include health care for all, free public college — and reparations to black Americans for slavery. More

Here is my question for AOC, why should reparations be made to people who were not directly impacted by slavery, and why should I be paying for it since my family never owned slaves.

This smacks of another pay-off by the Democrats for votes. Disgusting and does not move the country forward. Just further divides us.
