Castro says he supports financial reparations for African-Americans

Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro questioned Bernie Sanders’ skepticism for reparations. Castro compared the scope of monetary compensation for slavery to big-ticket social programs Sanders has called for. Castro said the US should address its ’original sin of slavery’ and pledged if elected president to ’appoint a commission or task force to determine the best way to do that’.

We’ve been doing this for years in affirmative action. 150 years after slavery and 50 years after any significant racism, people need to move on. Black people are not helpless children who cannot get into children by themselves. If anything, we need to be helping boys in general, who have fallen behind girls in college admissions and graduation by 39%.

How about just helping poor people regardless of skin color or culture?
