I think it a terrible idea. It's piecemeal reparations by individual state charities.I heard that California is seriously considering Reparations for descendants of African slaves. I live in California and I have all my family paperwork proving which of my ancestors were enslaved.
I hear the amount will be $225,000.00 for each descendant. I'll keep you all posted.
You can't just give single individuals money and then expect them to fix the harms done to an entire people by their own govt over hundreds of years. Also, it is something black Americans need to do for themselves if it is ever going to have a lasting impact.
