Minnesota Joins Reparations Movement, Seeks $100M From Taxpayers

  • Minnesota Democrats have introduced a $100 million reparations bill that would require the state to issue a formal apology to the family of George Floyd and acknowledge the “systemic racism in the state.”
  • It claims that reparations for the descendants of slaves are “considered the most effective means of breaking down the societal structure related to power, money, and access to resources and may be the only solution that can be applied intergenerationally that would be an investment in the future and in reducing disparities.”
