Freshman Rep. Burgess Owens (R-Utah), the great grandson of a slave, argued during a House subcommittee hearing Wednesday that it was “impractical and a non-starter for the United States government to pay reparations [for slavery]. It is also unfair and heartless to give black Americans the hope that this is a reality.”
