'Tucker Carlson Tonight' guest says African-Americans 'need to move on' from slavery

Kyle Moss

A guest’s take on reparations for black Americans and whether or not it will become a mainstream position among Democrats raised questions among some viewers during Thursday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight.

“When Kamala Harris says people are not starting from the same point — slavery was abolished a century and a half ago. Nobody alive today has a grandparent who was a slave,” Canadian author and columnist Mark Steyn said. “And in that sense, I think you reach a point where, you know, you need to move on.”

Viewers on Twitter were quick to refute some of Steyn’s facts.

Others didn’t see the value in reparations.

Steyn went on to say that it would be “disturbing” if reparations possibly become a mainstream platform.

“The reparations thing, eventually as the decades go by becomes ridiculous,” Steyn said. “I’m Canadian I think you guys should give us reparations because if you hadn’t had the revolution, we’d have the whole continent would now be Canada.”

Host Carlson summed up the reparations conversation with just a few words.

“It’s all so bad, though. It’s really divisive.”
