You said, “If Sanders had done his research, he would know that reparations can take many forms beyond just “a check to every African-American”.
The text highlighted here shows that Sanders acknowledges that there are better ways to make reparations. I agree that reparations are in order. But this is a complex issue that has festered for more than 400 years.

I submit that Sanders has a more holistic approach, and that it’s worth giving him the benefit of the doubt. Did any of the other candidates offer concrete plans or legislation in a way that Sanders did not (beyond agreeing that reparations are in order)?
