Fox News Guest Said Slavery Reparations Based on ‘Nothing Real.’ Tucker Carlson Agreed.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson agreed with an on-air guest who said that African Americans need to “move on” from slavery, and the premise of government reparations for the American slavery legacy was based on “nothing real.” “Slavery was abolished a century and a half ago, nobody today has a grandparent who was a slave, and in that sense I think you reach a point where you need to move on,” guest Mark Steyn said on Carlson's show Thursday evening. “The reparations thing, eventually, as the decades go by becomes ridiculous... The point here is that is this nothing real.” Carlson responded with a “yeah” before he let his guest continue. “This is nothing real to the lived experience of people of all kinds of identities today,” Steyn said. Steyn added that 2020 contender Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) endorsing the idea for reparations was her submitting to “identity politics” because “her own experience is entirely apart from the African-American slave experience.” Carlson said the idea was “so bad” and “really divisive” before ending the segment.
