Professor Nteta Featured in The Washington Post on Black American's Reparation

Tatishe Nteta, Provost Professor of Political Science and Director of the UMass Poll, is quoted in an article on the oldest living survivor of the Tulsa Race Massacre and the slow national movement toward reparations. The article cites a UMass poll conducted in January showing that a majority of Americans oppose cash payments for descendants of slaves. “It’s all about deservingness,” Nteta says. “It’s really informed by negative racial views and stereotypes of African Americans, and what they would do with the money.” (The Washington Post, 10/4/23; News Office release)
