The Fox News contributor offered that insight during a segment of Outnumbered focused on reparations to ancestors of former slaves that the U.S. government promised after the Civil War, but never fulfilled. Reparations have become a hot topic of debate for Democratic presidential candidates in the run-up to the 2020 election.
Facts be damned, Pavlich continued to parade her ethnocentric point of view by claiming that “we’re the country that decided to end (slavery) and we’re still dealing with the issues.”
“If you want to inflame racial tension even more, start blaming people who have nothing to do with slavery for the sin of slavery,” she offered. “That is not fair, that’s not the American way, and we shouldn’t be doing it.”
In Pavlich’s view, the real victims of possible reparations are the white people who will be treated unfairly. And paying ancestors of slaves would create so much inflammatory racial resentment that we, as a nation, should just skip the whole damn thing.
