Musician Stevie Wonder has said he expects that former Vice President Joe Biden, whom he supports, will be the person to make reparations for slavery happen if he wins the presidential election, according to The Washington Times. Wonder was speaking in Detroit, Michigan at a drive-in rally for Biden on Saturday.
“I’ll tell you what you could do better than [a Juneteenth holiday],” the legendary musician said. “I know Joe Biden will do it. Give us reparations.”
A wave of honks and cheers then rang from the attendees in their vehicles.
“For the work we’ve all done over the past 400 years — unpaid,” he then added.
“We must vote justice in and injustice out,” he also said at the event.
Referencing Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Wonder told the crowd: “Vote like you know that Biden and Harris are the only choice for a chance to bring this country back together.”
“Put the future in your hands, not in the hands of fate,” he continued.

Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity from the picket line after President Joe Biden’s “brief” few minutes of support with the United Auto Workers strike in Michigan. Biden spent a “whopping 12 minutes with those UAW workers outside the plant today” said Carter.
“And I can tell you the time I spent with hundreds of workers walking up and down that line it was stunning to see how they had turned on the administration none of them actually bought the visit they thought it was more political than it was supportive” she added about her discussions with workers on the ground.
“It’s all about votes, trying to get votes” said one worker. “It’s a show” said another. Individuals also lamented “they didn’t forget about us During the pandemic. We were building cars and trucks, we were working” only to be left behind now.
Carter said it was evident that immediately after the brief show of “support” Biden immediately left, and got straight on his plane to head to Silicon Valley for a fundraiser.
