The Biden administration is considering a census change that would ask Black Americans about their slave ancestry, potentially creating more division among our people. While some advocates support this change, others question the need for more divisions among Black Americans.
One in five Black people in the US are immigrants or their children, according to nonpartisan analysis, so why create more division among Black Americans? The San Francisco reparations panel recently called for every black slave descendant to receive $5 million in reparations, sparking controversy and debate. The left’s obsession with reparations and virtue signaling only serves to deepen the divides among our people.
Let’s reject this potential census change and focus on what unites us as Americans. We should be working towards unity and progress instead of policies that seek to further divide us.
