Comments

Senator Cory Booker, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee supports cash reparations but lacks the aggression to get things done. He introduced S.40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act, legislation that would establish a commission to consider proposals for reparations for African American descendants of slavery. The Commission will study the impact of slavery and the continuing discrimination against African Americans and will make recommendations on reparation proposals for the descendants of slaves. In addition, Senator Booker has also urged President Biden to establish a Presidential Commission to study and issue proposals on a national apology and reparations for African Americans.
