The issue is absurd. Do white people get reparations for black crime/rape/murder? How about for generations of welfare?
Reparations are what we need today we are all enslaved? Slavery is what men do to control the population.
What about the Irish the Chinese and many other nationalities? I did not know about the Jews receiving reparations? I don’t agree with that at all! It happened in Germany. Yeah but? The American corporation made money off of Germany ? Look guys we can talk about this but what’s the point?
Black people sold their own. Start there.
Texas like what is still being done today was on a conquest to squid more land it was a battle Texas won! Mexico lost.
B00F ! This Is N0T An issue, at all.
REPARATIONS, WHY NOT?
I’m sure everyone would be fine with paying for reparations for past ancestors’ sins when today’s Blacks anti-up for every murder, rape, and theft committed by their ancestors!
Furthermore, being that many of those who participated in selling slaves were Blacks would also require that their black descendants also pay reparations to the black descendants of those sold into slavery.
Of course, the entire idea runs contrary to the biblical prohibition against sons paying for the crimes of their fathers in Deuteronomy 24:16, Ezekiel 18:20, etc.
