The second item is “reparations.” My families all came to this country in the 20th century. My wife's families came in the very late 19th century. We had nothing to do with slavery, and, in fact, left Europe to escape oppression. Slavery was an abomination, practiced for centuries all over the world. I'm glad it's gone in this country. However, payment for something gone for almost two centuries is ridiculous. Any candidate who pushes it is likely to lose votes that he or she would otherwise get. That gives us four more years, but I won't vote for them. I suspect it will turn many states red.
