Let’s Talk About It: Slave Reparations

Is it fair? Yes if every other race that went through those type of situations during those times are getting paid then yes the race that suffered over 200 years of slavery. And a number of years of segregation should definitely get paid.

My question is what is the money for? What are you going to do with it? Buy some new Jordan’s and continue to live in a broken system. Where all that money can be taken away because you matched the description of someone there looking for. Yes, a payday sounds great but the fight is not over. Or when we aren’t allowed the benefits that everyone else is awarded just because of how we dress or how our name is pronounced.

We take money over lives and that’s the problem. We lost trillions of people over those years because of how we looked. So now a check is supposed to make up for the killings, rapings, and hard labor with no pay. That’s just my thoughts on it. People feel differently and I would love to hear your thoughts below.
