Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) has put the topics of race and reconciliation front and center in his nascent presidential campaign.
Since announcing his 2020 bid earlier this month, the New Jersey senator has talked in personal terms about racism — his parents’ struggle with housing discrimination in the 1960s, for example — and the need to have “honest conversations” about race.
The article goes on to state the following:
Since launching his 2020 campaign on Feb. 1, the first day of Black History Month, Booker has repeatedly pointed out that he is “the only senator who goes home to a low-income, inner city community” in Newark, N.J.
He’s talked about systemic inequality and the need to confront racism head on.
