Pro-Reparations Sunny Hostin Learns She Descends From Slavers In Hilarious Clip

In a revealing moment on PBS, Sunny Hostin, co-host of “The View” and a vocal advocate for reparations for slavery, discovered her own ancestral ties to slave ownership.

Hostin, known for her firm stance on reparations for descendants of slaves, embarked on a journey to trace her roots, a quest that led to an unexpected revelation. Hostin was confronted with the fact that her forebears were not just from Puerto Rico, as she had always believed, but originally hailed from Spain—and were slave owners.

“Wow. I’m a little bit in shock,” Hostin said. “I just always thought of myself as Puerto Rican. You know, half Puerto Rican. I didn’t think I was… My family was originally from Spain and slaveholders.”

“I think it’s actually pretty interesting that my husband and I have shared roots. Yeah, so I do appreciate that. And I think it’s great for our children to know this information.”

“I guess it’s a fact of life that this is how some people made their living on the backs of others,” she remarked.


I can’t wait for @sunny to start paying reparations.@KamalaHarris too since her family got rich in the slave trade.

Since both these women believe in reparations for black people, I’m sure they’ll gladly start writing checks.

So when it happens to her and her family, it’s “oh, good to know. I can let me kids know for reference” and “this is how people made a living, on the backs of others.”— now imagine what she’d have said if it was someone like Trumps family who lets say ever owned slaves. You think…
