  1. It’s still going on and no government in these colonial countries are talking about this seriously….lip services and high words only….in academic circles etc not enough….put your money where your mouth is….how about giving up the territories still held…British virgin island,etc etc…still saying that independent countries like Solomon Islands “ can’t rule themselves “ etc etc….media is also controlled…..they allow you to voice but nothing gets done…..

  2. In speaking from an American copper man I'd say that the system here more than anything kept a inferiority complex upon us in order to keep mostly white ahead of blacks economically giving money to us would make the inferiority complex worse and generate more money into the same system that destroyed in he 1st place we must get rid of the inferiority complex in blacks 1st tell them the full truth of what happened acknowledge all their contributions stop acting dumb when common sense says a crime is a crime stop acting like racism is gone and give them what you extorted outta fear this is no different than the Israeli Palestinian conflict.

  4. Why are you guys asking for what belong to our Ancestors? What we are due is OUR INHERITANCE, 250 years WORTH! Our people were forced into slavery working 18hours or more everyday plus what ever the massas, their wives and friends decided they wanted to do to them from the youngest to the oldest. REPARATIONS were to help the Enslaved start their life. That is not due us. But as I said, Inheritance is. 250 years worth of FORCED work. If our people had been paid as they should have been, they would have left an hefty INHERITANCES but instead the Massas family is living off of it still today for some. Do you guys realize that some of the offsprings are working for companies that were created with money from slavery? We are working to earn money that already belong to us because our Ancestors already earned it. Why are you guys still asking for what we're not due and besides, you're asking for pennies on the dollar. We are due Millions, not hundreds of thousands. The Government ok'd slavery and they should ok our INHERITANCE as well!

  5. Reparations in relationship to the United States of America, are due Specifically to Afro/Black Americans Descendants of Enslaved Africans who were later identified as "The Freedmen" There are many other Reparations Cases throughout our Afro Diaspora but must be calculated and administered separately.

  6. Let's put equal efforts into getting reparations from the Arab chattel enslavement of Black Afrikans, which started hundreds of years before the so-called Europeans started this genocide. It must, and will be paid…so why not start now before the costs go up…though, there can be no monetary value placed of these untold, innumerable millions of human lives.

  7. So if we pay reparations, does that mean racism is gone forever and we can finally get rid of affirmative action, no more race card and all this other racial favoritism stuff?

  8. Reparations owed to Foundational Black Americans by the American government is the only debt in the history of this country that comes with deflective questions that are intended to undermine payment of the debt…..The best way to find out if reparations does anything to address systematic racism is to pay what is owed🤔🤔

  9. Dear Black race baiters who are demanding reparations for events that you have never personally experienced. You might want to include reparations for the 300,000 plus solders of the Northern Union "White Supremacists" who gave their lives to free your ancestors.
    You also might want to tip your hat to the Republican party who was responsible for the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that effectively ended racism in Democrat controlled south. And I'm not even going to mention the part that Senator Al Gore Sr. played in trying to prevent the passage of the Act.

  10. Slavery has never been the monopoly of coloured people as there were white slaves as well (as in my own family). In fact within the historical record we have whites enslaving whites, blacks enslaving blacks and every other racial combination you can imagine (don't forget that the Eastern European word Slav derived from slave). My ancestors were both white and slaves regardless of the fact that neither my family tree nor my genotype display the least hint of coloured ancestors. So why has slavery become so closely associated with black Americans? Is there a race to the bottom to see who has the greater claim to victimhood? Can the concept of "white guilt" stand up against the historical reality of black slave-owners of white slaves? If reparations are seen as justified, does that include the descendants of white slaves? Moreover, are we validating the notion of hereditary guilt? Should the great-great-great-great grandchildren of murders be given life sentences (or worse) for the sins of these distant ancestors? Would it not be easier if we were held responsible only for our own crimes rather than including all the sins of our ancestors?

  11. I first learned about reparations in 1987 from pbs back then they had alot straight forward programs. Queen Mother Moore was on one of them refusing to never give up the fight for reparations. I never forgot

  12. An Arab tv station talking about American reparations is the greatest irony I’ve ever seen.

    The world champions of slavery are Arabs. It took Europeans had to make them stop selling slaves, though they still do it.
