Michael Eric Dyson Beliefs

yson’s general philosophy is that American black people are continuing to suffer from generations of ongoing oppression; therefore, white Americans should compensate blacks financially. On Fox News with Tucker Carlson, Dyson suggested that white Americans (due to white privilege) should create individual reparation accounts and give money to local black communities. During the Munk Debates of 2018, Dyson either claimed or endorsed the following statements:

  • the country is a giant safe space for white people,
  • success is easier for white people, and
  • white people should be taxed more to offset continued effects of slavery
