2020 Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has joined fellow candidate Sen. Kamala Harris in backing reparations for black Americans affected by slavery and Jim Crow. Warren told The New York Times that she "supported reparations for black Americans impacted by slavery," but her campaign did not provide details of the plan. Harris was asked about reparations as well. Radio host Charlamagne Tha God asked "You are for some type of reparations?", and Harris replied "Yes I am."

It will be interesting to see Sanders take on this, since he came out against it in 2016 as being "too divisive."

The idea of "red meat" is you're supposed to be exciting your own base, not the other party's base. This is akin to scoring a goal for the opposing team.

Please Dems, push reparations in 2020. Tie that up with the Green New Deal, paying people unwilling to work, and open borders. There is nothing that will fire up GOP more. Heck, with buzzards circling RBG, she might become the critical motivating factor for the GOP to vote.

What is very apparent, is that it will take a hard left politician to win the Dem nomination. There won't be a centrist. When it comes time to debate Trump, we are going to have a Dem making the case for free trade, open borders, free college, money for people unwilling to work, taxing cow farts, and now - reparations.

I can understand it though - blacks in the US are starting to warm to Trump with CJ reform and booming employment. They need something to keep them on the plantation and free money might do the trick. What is uncertain is how the Hispanics will react to this.

Ok, to make both of these annoying women happy, we'll give them 40 acres and a tomahawk.
