Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Friday evening that Native Americans should be “part of the conversation” on reparations, showing a willingness to expand the debate over whether minority groups that have faced discrimination should be financially compensated by the federal government. So far, Warren is the only one to entertain the notion of including Native Americans. Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) and former housing and urban development secretary Julián Castro both have said in vague terms that they support reparations for black Americans. Self-help guru Marianne Williamson has offered a detailed plan to give black Americans $100 billion. When asked to expand on her support for reparations, Warren offered no new details.
