Spiritual guru and 2020 White House hopeful Marianne Williamson on Wednesday released her plan to pay between $200 billion to $500 billion in reparations to descendants of African slaves in the United States.
The proposal calls for the creation of a “Reparations Commission” to allocate funds to infrastructure and education initiatives in black neighborhoods. According to Williamson’s campaign, the commission would be run by 50 descendants of slaves with a “scholarly, cultural, or political connection to the issue of reparations.”
During the last 2020 Democratic debate, Williamson argued any proposal that is “less than $100 billion” is “an insult.”
“That great injustice has had to do with the fact that there was 250 years of slavery followed by another 100 years of domestic terrorism.”
