Coates Praises Elizabeth Warren on Reparations
When asked if he would take some Democrats “more seriously than others when they talk about reparations,” Coates replied, “Yeah, I think Elizabeth Warren is probably serious.
“I think she means it. I mean—I guess it will break a little news—after ‘The Case for Reparations’ came out, she just asked me to come and talk one-on-one with her about it,” Coates added. “She had read it. She was deeply serious, and she had questions. And it wasn’t, like, Will you do X, Y, and Z for me? It wasn’t, like, I’m trying to demonstrate I’m serious.”
