Albany to consider slavery reparations

Per Gary Shapiro in the NY Sun: "The New York State Legislature is considering one bill that would have the state formally apologize for its role in slavery and another that would study and recommend remedies for the descendants of slaves." Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries (D-Brooklyn) is the sponsor of the bill to establish a commission to study reparations for slavery. Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute is quoted calling the measure a foolish idea and a "clear shakedown for businesses".
