Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who said earlier this week that she supports reparations for black Americans who have been affected by slavery, told reporters Friday that the nation needs to confront its “ugly history of racism” and “talk about the right way to address it and make change.”

Warren addressed race in a speech Friday to New Hampshire Democrats, but didn’t speak specifically about reparations. She said black families in America have been disadvantaged by “structural racism” and have only $5 in wealth for every $100 in wealth owned by the average white family.
