On April 9, 2020 Presidential hopeful Sen. Corey Booker introduced a bill to the Senate that would form a committee to explore the idea of paying reparations to descendants of slavery. While the bill goes into no detail as to who these reparations will be paid to and how much they will be, it does open the door for the Democratic Party to begin exploring the policy more seriously.
While there’s no denying that the United States has a long history of injustices toward the African-American race, reparations is not the answer. Small payments made to the descendants of slaves will do nothing to fix past injustices, nothing to combat racism in the United States, and nothing to help break the cycle of poverty that many African-American communities are caught in. Senator Booker’s reparations bill is nothing more than an attempt to garner minority votes, and the timing of this bill’s introduction could not be more obvious.
What reparations will do, though, is further widen the racial divide in the United States and stir resentment among taxpayers who are forced to fund reparations being paid to individuals who never experienced the horrors of slavery.
