All Woke Up: Biden’s reparations czar?

Empower Wisconsin | Nov. 19, 2020

Could we see a Reparations Czar in a Biden administration? 

As Campus Reform reports, Biden expects to tap several economic advisers who are experts in “systemic racism” and reparations. 

His campaign has appointed Mehrsa Baradaran, a professor at the University of California’s Irvine School of Law, to the Department of the Treasury agency review board. 

According to Campus Reform: 

Baradaran wrote a book titled The Color of Money, in which she argues that “housing segregation, racism, and Jim Crow credit policies created an inescapable, but hard to detect, economic trap for black communities and their banks,” according to a description by Harvard University Press.

In a symposium of articles for New York University Law Review, Baradaran stated that “a full reparations program is necessary and theoretically justified…” 

The first article in the series is titled “Homeownership Is the Root of the Problem.” It asserts that some form of monetary reparations would correct instances in which Black families were left out of federal housing legislation.

She also argued for the full funding of childcare and the elimination of cash bail.

It appears the painfully woke are getting what they paid for in the empty vessel that is Joe Biden.
