    You seem basically a 'Hater'.
    But, I would support looking at the case for 'why are Blacks on the bottom rung of the Economic Ladder'.
    I personally think it has to do with 'Land Ownership' and 'Inheritance'.

For me, the really fascinating questions about black slave-owning are how many black "masters" were involved, how many slaves did they own and why did they own slaves?"

    Your statement like most "whitesplaining" is taking a few random facts and twisting them into a jumble that ends up being nothing but LIES, A few Africans sold other Africans, but Most were caught by "slave catchers" and it STILL doesn't explain the 2 Century plus practice in America, does it?

    So, will I be getting 'paid' for the past enslavement of my ancestors?

    STILL doesn't explain or forgive the 2 Century plus practiced in America, does it?

    Who cares what you think of me?

    Bottom line EVERYTHING I HAVE POSTED IS BASED ON FACTS!

    Most whites just don't like hearing it.

    Over the course of the Civil war, 2,128,948 men enlisted in the Union Army.

    And also over the course of the Civil war 360,000 plus Union soldiers died and gave their lives to free the 4 million slaves in the south and end slavery.

    Are we also going to give reparations to them?

    Their blood and sacrifice were worth something don't you think?

    If you understand it was a usual and customary practice, it DOES explain it.

    LGBTs were systematically discriminated against in a similar cultural mindset. Slavery, no different. Whites enslaving other 'Whites' was common throughout History.

    I question whether you are serious about a discussion, or simply want to enforce your Hatred of 'White People' as a basis.

    'Slavery' was an 'institution'. It was culturally accepted around the World.
    I could be wrong, but I think you are under the impression 'Slavery' just happened to 'Black People', and it only happened in America.

    Most Blacks are forgiving people. We aren't looking for a check in the mail...…..that is the racist white man's narrative and excuse not to give reparations.

    We will accept reparations in the forms of the following:

    Eliminate the for profit prison industrial complex
    Eliminate the cash bail system
    Eliminate Check the box for housing
    Eliminate Redlining in housing
    Eliminate Check the box for employment
    Eliminate Background checks for employment
    Eliminate Bias's in Financial Institutions with low cost, low interest rate loans
    Eliminate Voting restriction
    Eliminate the Electoral College
    Eliminate the Death Penalty
    Eliminate Police Unions
    Eliminate Racist laws such as sagging pants, loitering, skateboarding etc.
    Eliminate Racial segregation laws
    Revise and Revamp the ENTIRE LAW ENFORCEMENT SYSTEM hold racist departments, individual kops and the Justice Department accountable.
    Revise and Revamp the ENTIRE JUDICIAL SYSTEM Hold racist Judges, DA's, Prosecutors, etc accountable.
    Free Healthcare
    Free Education
    Raise the minimum wage to at lest 25.00 hr.

    And if push comes to shove...…..give us our fuckin 40 acres and a mule!

    This is for starters...……….I could add to the list.

    THIS IS WHAT WE MEAN BY REPERATIONS
    I think I'll take your portion because my great grandfather fought to free your worthless racist ass. Be happy with what you got.
    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    So free white people who joined the army and fought in a war of their own making deserves reparations?

    What part of BLACKS WERE SLAVES do you not understand? I don't see the connection

    I'm confused???????????????????

    THIS IS WHAT WE MEAN BY REPERATIONS
    Aside from most of these being about class, not race, some of them are just silly.
    "Eliminate Racial segregation laws." You know we already did that, right?
    "Eliminate Racist laws such as sagging pants, loitering, skateboarding etc." I had no idea laws against skateboarding were a sneaky way of targeting all of those white kids who make up the majority of skateboarders.

    TBH, most of these are good ideas, and shouldn't be weighted down with the absurdity of reparations for black people.
