Beto O’Rourke announced that he and his wife’s ancestors owned slaves.
“That those enslaved Americans owned by my ancestors were denied their freedom, denied the ability to amass wealth, denied full civil rights in America after slavery also had long term repercussions for them and their descendants,” O’Rourke wrote.
“I benefit from a system that my ancestors built to favor themselves at the expense of others,” he added in the post, a defense of reparations.
“We all need to know our own story as it relates to the national story, much as I am learning mine. It is only then, I believe, that we can take the necessary steps to repair the damage done and stop visiting this injustice on the generations that follow ours.”
Where was the Mainstream Media breaking this story? They had no problem digging into the past of Mitch McConnell to find his slave ancestry.
They are also yet to cover Kamala Harris’ slaveholding ancestors.
