The United States Congress hosted a hearing on a bill to study the effects of slavery reparations. The voices in support of the bill include Ta-Nehisi Coates, who expanded on his landmark 2014 essay “The Case For Reparations.”

Coleman Hughes, a columnist for the website Quilette, spoke in the anti-reparations lane. His vigorously booed statement was essentially a rehash of long-worn talking points dismantled by Ta-Nahesi Coates in his own address, but there is something to be gained from his appearance: not long after, Franklin Leonard pointed out on Twitter that Coleman is also a SoundCloud rapper called Coldman with a track called “My Dick Works.”
