Daily Wire editor Ben Shapiro said Tuesday on "The Story" that Democrats pressing for slavery reparations cannot come up with a "fair system" to do so, and that the left continues to use identity politics to stifle debate.

Martha MacCallum played video of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) telling a reporter that there "has to be some form of reparations" for slavery and those affected by Jim Crow laws.

MacCallum said that candidates Julian Castro (D-Texas) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) also endorsed reparations.

Shapiro said that Democrats are upset that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has not endorsed reparations. He said that Sanders instead wants his "socialist redistributionist schemes" to help make up for them.

He said that the entire debate proves that "race is the issue for a huge swath of the Democratic Party."

"Identity politics is the way to shut down debate," Shapiro said.
