New Democratic 2020 Candidate Proposes $100 Billion For Slavery Reparations

By

Author Marriane Williamson told CNN she wants to give $100 billion for slavery reparations.

[…] “We need someone to articulate what’s happening, the deeper levels of moral dysfunction,” Williamson said. “I have had a 35-year career in naming and transforming those dynamics. That’s my qualification for the presidency at this time.”

Williamson formally launched her campaign Monday night with a speech in Los Angeles. Her campaign website outlines her proposals that mostly align with progressive policies like universal health care, free higher education and a Green New Deal.

She’s also proposing $100 billion in reparations for slavery, $10 billion a year to be distributed over 10 years.

“I believe $100 billion given to a council to apply this money to economic projects and educational projects of renewal for that population is a debt to be paid,” she told Berman.

This may seem radical, but Williamson is just following the Democratic mantra, “free everything.”
