Who exactly deserves reparations here?
“Whiteness confers knowable, quantifiable privileges,” Coates ranted in a defense of reparations.
What then is the sources of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ known and quantifiable privileges, of turning down a New York Times column while getting paid by The Atlantic to blog about comic books?
How does the underprivileged Coates get to be a visiting professor at MIT despite not having a degree?
I think ALL REGISTERED DEMOCRATS should pay reparations. Democrats started a civil war to defend their ‘white privilege’ to own black slaves. Democrats started Jim Crow to defend their ‘white privilege’ to keep freed black slaves as second-class citizens.
Slavery is the only ‘white privilege’ Democrats recognize.
