Every Dem candidate except for Biden promised Al Sharpton at his convention yesterday that they’d sign a reparations bill. Not a single one of them even attempted to explain how they’d get the Hispanic voters on board with the idea.
I personally have no problem with reparations: no price is too high to get Americans to stop being so extremely weird about race. But I definitely want to see a politician try to sell this idea to Hispanics. It’s not very shocking that Trump’s approval among Hispanic voters is at 50% and has been growing. If people keep repeating the word “reparations” often enough, who knows how high it can climb.
The worst part is that obviously nobody is going to pass any reparations bill. This is just a purity test of zero substance. It keeps alienating voters but nobody seems to care.
