Reparations - Moving $13 Trillion in Wealth among Black Americans
Direct payments to African Americans for enslavement of African Americans from 1619 to 1865.
Black Americans comprise 13% of nation's population by constitute less than 3 % of its wealth.
Racial wealth gap must be closed with direct payments.

My family never owed slaves. Many black Americans today don't have ancestors who are slaves.

No thanks. How did they figure out who owes who? Oh, they haven't? Then frick you. No payments.

Not all of the 13% is directly descended from American slaves.

Can I just give my house and vehicles to a black person? Does that count.

For systemic racism and white supremacy.
Reparations WILL pass in 2021. And so will abolition of gun rights.
And people thought this fraud election was all no big deal. We going to vote them out starting in 2022.

That's a shiny hook, but I'm bored.

Paid for by who?

Why is this an issue that needs to be fixed externally? Wouldn't it be better solved from within?

What happens when the gap reappears after a few generations? More reparations?

So let me get this straight. Biden and Harris ancestors were both slaveowners. Mine came over on a boat from Germany during the potato famine, starving to death, and got jobs in meat packing plants and digging ditches... but I am responsible to pay reparations but Biden and Harris are not?

Most blacks are not the descendants of slaves. Most black migration occurred post Civil war.

So, we would be paying from people who never had slaves to people who never were slaves.

Sounds like you got it pretty well figured out. That's precisely what they expect from you.

Honest question

How do you decide who gets paid?
