Ben St is discussing:

Congress should approve a bill to study reparations for the descendants of slaves. Justice and morality cry out for some way of compensating them for the horrific treatment of their ancestors.

Not all chains are physical. Racism is alive and well and some are just confused who is and who is not racist. Fist of all, talking to people like they are not intellectually capable of supporting themselves is the same as physically forcing them not to. Allowing for special hiring advantages does no one any good. It merely pushes a bottom line for some to pat themselves on the back to quiet their own fears of closet racism. Hiring someone based on skin color then setting them up to fail is just as bad as not hiring them to begin with.
