This goes against the whole equality mantra that America prides itself on. Not to mention, every single group in one way or another has been mistreated or oppressed at one point in some form or fashion. Allowing this for African Americans would only be the very beginning for a very slippery slope in having to provide reparations for every other type of group who's experienced oppression since the beginning of American history. Not to mention it would severely increase racial tensions because of the different reparations each group would or wouldn't receive. This would only put America's progressive agenda further down the shitter.
