White House adviser Cedric Richmond said it is “doable” for President Biden to make progress in his first term to break down barriers for people of color, as the administration supports a study on potential reparations for Black Americans."We have to do stuff now," Richmond said. During the 2020 presidential campaign, Biden said he supported the creation of a commission to study proposals for reparations. "I think that [creation of a commission] will pass," Richmond told Axios, adding that the timeline for the commission is not yet known. But he said, "If you start talking about free college tuition to [Historically Black Colleges and Universities] and you start talking about free community college in Title I and all of those things, I think that you are well on your way."
