Black musician Stevie Wonder announced during a Joe Biden campaign rally in Detriot, Michigan this Sunday that “Joe Biden will do it. Give us reparations, for the work that we’ve all done for the last four hundred years, unpaid.”
Wonder mocked President Donald Trump for his decision to designate Juneteenth as a national holiday, a measure that has failed to lessen the deep resentment harbored by groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa towards the Trump administration.
The 70-year-old musician, who has an estimated net worth of $110 million, said Biden would do something much better for Black Lives Matter than make Juneteenth a holiday.
“Okay, I’ll tell you what you can do much better than that, and Joe Biden will do it: give us reparations,” Wonder declared, to shrieks of applause and a salute of dozens of car horns, as the musicians onstage with them slammed on the drum set and bass guitar.
