Comments

Maxine Waters, a Democratic representative from California, has been a vocal advocate for reparations for African Americans. She supports the idea of addressing historical injustices through reparations and has co-sponsored legislation related to this issue. However, she receives this vote because of her lack of action when it comes to Reparations for American Descendants of slaves. Lately, her support has gone towards Tulsa reparations and reparations for indigenous tribes.
