Fight tech tyranny. Join Dan on Parler @dbongino.

Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is introducing legislation to study reparations for African Americans.

Booker announced on Twitter,”I will be introducing a bill to study reparations proposals for African-Americans – the Senate companion to @JacksonLeeTX18’s HR40 bill. Our hope is this will finally begin to right the economic wrongs of persistent racism, white supremacy & implicit racial bias in our nation.”

Politico reports: The bill, H.R. 40, by Lee (D-Texas) would create a congressional panel to study the possibility of reparations for the descendants of slaves. Former Rep. John Conyers of Michigan first introduced the legislation in 1989.
