House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) blasted Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) over his comments that aid to Black farmers in the Covid-19 relief bill are “reparations,” CNN reports.
Said Clyburn: “Lindsey Graham is from South Carolina. He knows South Carolina’s history. He knows what the state of South Carolina and this country has done to Black farmers in South Carolina. They didn’t do it to White farmers. We’re trying to rescue the lives and livelihoods of people. He ought to be ashamed of himself.”
He added: “I think you ought to go back and maybe go to church. Get in touch with his Christianity.”Save to Favorites
