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.

Fear the reparations backlash.

Far from serving as a moment of moral reckoning and healing for the country, as its advocates contend, it would inspire a severe backlash that would inflame tensions on both sides of the color line -- and set the stage for future calls from other groups for acts of public restitution for past injustices. It's a recipe for greatly intensified civic anger and resentment.
