Reparations Hearing Makes Strong Case For Establishment Of New Commission

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell thinks reparations already came in the form of a Black President, but that didn’t stop Congress from having a hearing Wednesday on H.R. 40 which calls for the establishment of a commission to study reparations for Black Americans.

The panel, which included notables like Danny Glover, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and economist Julianne Malveaux overwhelmingly made a case in favor of exploring the institution of slavery and its lasting effects on the Black American community.
