During the third Democrat debate, 2020 candidates covered a wide variety of issues. Healthcare, climate change, education, and additional matters came up, with various candidates weighing in. Democrats also weighed in on reparations, with many of the candidates supporting the idea that today’s descendents of slaves should be paid to atone for wrongdoings which their ancestors experienced.
This is a matter which Joe Biden addressed and his statements have displeased several individuals. When asked about “repairing” slavery’s legacy, Biden went on to talk about reforming the education system. He then made arguably questionable remarks about bringing social workers into the homes of impoverished, black families in order to care for their children.

Many Democrats have openly professed their support for reparations.

When Biden spoke, he provided some fascinating remarks on atoning for slavery via reparations.
