Q: Will African Americans ever get reparations?

Edwards "is not for reparations."

Obama: "I think the reparations we need right here in South Carolina is investment in our schools." (That's a standard politician line, allowing Obama to avoid saying that he does not support specific grants of money to black citizens) but the audience loved it.) John Edwards essentially pivoted to the same argument but Obama, strangely, decided to throw some sound bites at the audience, and it worked.

Dennis Kucinich does support reparations.

That's a question journalists wouldn't ask ourselves, so kudos to CNN for choosing it.
