Ta-Nehisi Coates Revisits the Case for Reparations
When Ta-Nehisi Coates wrote â€œThe Case for Reparationsâ€ forÂ The Atlantic, in 2014, he didnâ€™t expect the government to make reparations anytime soon. He told David Remnick that he had a more modest goal. â€œMy notion,â€ Coates says, â€œwas you could get people to stop laughing.â€ For Coates, to treat reparations as a punch line is to misunderstand their purpose. He argues that reparations werenâ€™t only meant to atone for the horror of chattel slavery but to address racial inequities and the economic impact that has persisted since emancipation, more than a century ago. â€œThe case Iâ€™m trying to make is, within the lifetime of a large number of Americans in this country, there was theft.â€ Â â€œThe Case for Reparationsâ€ was an intellectual sensation, and Coates did change the conversation; of the more than twenty candidates in the 2020 Democratic Presidential race, eight have said theyâ€™re in favor of at least establishing a commission to study the subject. He points to Senator Elizabeth Warren, who sought out Coates to discuss his article years before she was considered a candidate. But Coatesâ€™s own hopes for America truly making amends remain modest. â€œIt may be true that this is something folks rally around,â€ he says, â€œbut thatâ€™s never been my sense.â€
