Reparations won't solve anything. The same racist black people who are demanding reparations won't be satisfied until white people are hanging from trees.
You have a good point, the north won and freed the slaves, so by freeing people from slavery we should also pay reparation to them. And they say no good deed goes unpunished.

I really don't see any reason why anyone alive today should receive reparations for something that ended a hundred years before most of them were even born. It seems to me that if any reparations were ever due, they were paid by the 600,000+ men who died in the Civil War.

Or how about the Native Americans get stuff from Europe, im part that too.
Hmmm... do we ignore the fact that more than a few of those native tribes raided and claimed slaves from other tribes? Which tribes can make claims against other tribes?
