Democratic presidential candidate calls for slavery reparations | ITV News
With so many Democrats wanting to run against US President Donald Trump in next year's election, they are having to split their TV debates over two nights.
The first debate touched on racism after the US President's attacks on ethnic minority members of congress.
It prompted a debate about whether the descendants of slaves should receive cash payments, by way of making amends.
The fight for the political left is just one subplot as the first wave of 10 candidates met in Detroit.
When Marianne Williamson was asked why she was qualified to determine how much is owed in reparations for slavery, she said: "We need to recognise that when it comes to the economic gap between blacks and whites in America, it does come from a great injustice that has never been dealt with."
