JUST IN: Dems Call for Commission on ‘Reparation Proposals’ for ‘246 Years of Slavery’

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee addressed members of the House Monday when she called for the creation of a commission to study and develop “reparations proposals” to address “246 years of slavery.”

“I rise today to promote the commission to study slavery and develop reparation proposals as a way of redress, repair and restoration for the 246 years of slavery. I think it is an important […] moment for the country to pause,” said the Congresswoman.
