Omar calls for action “to make amends with a history of enslavement, of brutality, of othering”

During a recent appearance, “squad” member Ilhan Omar (D-MN) called for action “for us to make amends with a history of enslavement, of brutality, of othering.”

Omar says this “neglect” has led to mass incarceration, “lack of healthcare, lack of assets being built and lack of investment in the environment.”
