I have known about the idea of black reparations and have personally struggled to articulate clearly why it is important to investigate the recurring cycle of practices that have evolved over US history, churning out new ways of reinforcing racial inequality. Read Coates' article before saying nay and his response to people who dismiss it anyway. Ignorance is not as bad as incuriosity. His article's argument in vast favor for this bill is too good to summarize and say everything I think that needs to be said. #Bernie2016 and I dare to dream a little bigger.
