June 2021-Biden signed the legislative day as a federal public holiday because the Republican Party compared with “critical racial theory”
What is Biden’s position on compensation?
In April, the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee (HJC) did approve a bill that would develop a plan to study how and whether black citizens can be compensated to compensate for the slave trade in the United States.
One of the supporters of the bill is Rashida Tlaib, a House Democrat and squad member in Detroit.
She said in a statement at the time: “The time has come to provide compensation to African Americans in the United States.” “The era of slavery and Jim Crow was a dark and ugly chapter in the history of this country, which continues to penetrate today. All aspects of life.
“Unless we begin to atone for the sins of this country, we will not be able to completely eradicate hatred, bigotry and discrimination against African Americans, and eliminate economic, political, and social inequalities.”
In February, the White House stated that President Joe Biden would support research on compensation for slavery-but did not confirm whether he would sign the HJC bill.
