reparations are paid by men to women, including black men who got the vote 50 years before all women and are today also usually paid more than women working the same jobs, when they are able to rise to them since men as a group are still privileged in hiring and promotions.

That said, if it's important to one group, or many other groups, in our grand Democratic coalition who have long suffered from institutionalized discrimination, some of whom were even once despicably enslaved (!), it's fine with me. We're an extremely wealthy nation built on claims of equality of all men but always only struggling toward that ideal, and sometimes falling back almost as many steps as we manage forward. We can afford to do what many feel is only right.
If I were to vote in a presidential
