Tyrus said the United States government taking responsibility for the actions of slavery is very important.

“I don’t think it has to be monetized but I would just like to see the responsibility taken by the government,” he said.

This is a symbolic gesture of acknowledgment. The amount of money isn't important, it's the fact that the government understands the gravity of what slavery was and we do not repeat history again.

 If a political party was behind this conversation of reparation it seems like they were pandering to voters instead of actually being concerned this issue is behind us.

“The whole point is progress, not reversal,” Tyrus said.
