Popovich’s take here isn’t shared by everyone although it’s certainly a serious one to consider, especially with everything happening in the world. It’s clear that black people have faced years of economic hardship due to policies that were put into place centuries ago. Based on this context, Popovich’s ideas aren’t exactly radical.
Whether or not reparations are something the U.S. government would consider, remains to be seen.
