A reparation is a repayment for damage.HOLY SHIT !?!!?!?!?!??
First of all, the very idea of repaying reparations is simply unheard of, and so generous as to be self insulting. If you've never heard, reparations are supposed to be ONE WAY and not include returning the payment for damages. Yet somehow that is not good enough for you ?
Plus, you think someone outside those responsible for repayment should have a say in how it works and who should be entitled to what and how ?
The wealth created by the labor of their ancestor that was STOLEN is one of the central, if not most central, foundations of American wealth. It raised one group and lowered another. That has an effect that has lasted to this day.
Reparations are for damage done to one specific group. You seem to think every American should be compensated for what happened to one group of Americans.
Chattel Slavery was exclusive to one group in America.
You can't hide the wrong done here by trying to shift the blame to some other country. You didn't care that the Brits paid reparations to slave owners. So why are you trying to drag what African countries did in their lands as some kind of excuse for what was done here. This is about America, not anywhere else.
That did come up when reparations were paid to any other group. It went specifically to that group and no other group. Yet for the descendants of slaves it unconstitutional. How exactly do you figure that ?
the wealth stolen was stolen by other people from other people. You are providing reap a ration to the wrong people.
I wasn’t trying to shift blame to another country - you spoke of slavery as an EXCLUSIVE wrong, and I was pointing out that it isn’t exclusiv.
