Stevie Wonder calls for reparations at Detroit rally with Biden and Obama and says 'I know Joe Biden will do it!'
STEVIE Wonder called for reparations for black people at a Detroit rally held by Joe Biden and Barack Obama on Saturday.
The musician, whose net worth is estimated at $110 million, said payments to black people are needed for “the work that we’ve all done for the last 400 years, unpaid!”
“Supposedly Juneteenth is a holiday, okay. I think we can do better than that and I know Joe Biden will do it. Give us reparations for the work that we’ve all done for the last 400 years, unpaid!” Wonder said.
Critics were quick to slam the Superstition singer for his comments.
“Millionaire celebrity wants working-class people to pay him,” said one Twitter user.
Another responded: “Stevie did not perform any unpaid work for 400 years.”
Others mocked the millionaire for being “super oppressed.”
The comments come as Obama joins Biden to campaign in battleground states in the final days before the election.
At another rally in Flint earlier in the day, Obama slammed President Donald Trump for his “obsession” with crowd sizes – before Trump then mocked Obama and Biden for how they handled the ongoing Flint water crisis.
“Biden & Obama owe a massive apology to the People of Flint. The water was poisoned on their watch. Not only did they fail them, Biden proudly accepted the endorsement of disastrous Gov Rick Snyder!” Trump raged on Twitter.
