Fox News host Tucker Carlson blasted a California plan to explore both reparations for slavery and a process by which to determine who qualified to receive them, arguing that the only way to really know who should get those payments was to implement “Nazi race science.”

Carlson argued during his Wednesday broadcast that because so much time had passed since the end of slavery in the United States — and since so many generations of children had been born since — that ancestral records coupled with DNA tests would likely be required to “prove” that individuals were, in fact, the descendants of slaves.


Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) created a task force in 2020 to determine how such restitution payments might be made, and the current debate is over how to determine who might be eligible to receive them.

“The first-in-the-nation task force previously voted to limit reparations to Black California residents whose ancestors were living in the United States in the 19th century. This week, the group will talk about whether there could be additional eligibility requirements and what time frame reparations could hinge on,” The Los Angeles Times reported.

“It’s been a long time — it’s been more than 150 years since slavery,” Carlson responded, pointing out the fact that in the time since, many generations of children had been born — and that included a number of generations of mixed-race children as well.

“So at this point, there are plenty of white people in America who are descended from slaves, and there are plenty of black people in America who are descended from slave owners,” he said, adding, “So how do you know who qualifies for government reparations? Well of course there is only one way to find out: that is old-fashioned Nazi race science. Nazi race science.”

Carlson went on to explain that the only way to truly nail down which Americans were descended from slaves was with comprehensive DNA testing that would allow the government to “certify” who is and who isn’t entitled to receive reparations.

“Do we really want to go there? Do we really want to do that? Amazingly, liberals really do,” Carlson concluded.
