For what?? Past history? We need to stop punishing the current population for the ideals and norms of our history. By allowing the Federal government to say we need to pay reparations to Africa-Americans sends the message that everyone who is not an African-American did something wrong, that’s including all other nationalities, not just families who have ancestry in plantation ownership.
We already have given reparations to African families through the passing of the write to vote and birthright citizenship provided in the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments in the Constitution. The rights and freedoms of former slaves was a victory that no monetary value could provide.
In today’s world, there is no need to give a population reparations, period.
