They are trying to push this under the rug.
According to Breitbart News, Candace Owens stated that the Democrats proposing “reparations” for black Americans is an “obvious scam” meant for pandering ahead of an election cycle.
“I spoke specifically about reparations because it’s just one of the most obvious scams that’s before us, in terms of saying that this is something they want to suddenly take a look at — ahead of an election cycle.” said Owens.
“This is exactly the sort of pandering that I speak out against,” added Owens of the Democrats’ reparations proposal. “They think black Americans are stupid. They think that we’re emotional. They don’t think that we understand that what we need are better policies, not more handouts.”
“Handouts amount to absolutely nothing,” said Owens. “If they did, black America would be wealthy today, because the welfare industry — 22 trillion dollars has gone into it, and black Americans are poorer today than when it began. So, I speak out against all of that trickery that comes from the left, and that rhetoric ahead of any election cycle.” You can read the full article here.
