Hey I know.... let’s have the UN declare that Egypt must pay the Jews reparation for having to build the pyramids under the lash.

While we are at it, let's teach about all the Native Genocide, The California Genocide, the forced sterilizations of people of Mexican Descent, the imprisonment of Native kids in assimilation schools, etc
Were you aware that the US was not the only country that had slaves? Maybe we can get Africa to pay reparations too because they sold their own into shavery. Oh by the way, Michelle Obama’s Family is reputed to have been slaveowners.

Imagine where this country would be if blacks hadn't been brought here and enslaved. I think gaining freedom is worth more than any amount of money they can receive.
Freedom is a civil right and enslavement of black folk showed the hypocrisy this country was founded on. No idea where you're trying to go with these statements, but it sounds like you're trying to say slavery was a positive....

My white ancestors did not have slaves and lived a very poor life. If the slave owner desendents pay for it and pay me too then ok.

Isn't blaming a whole race for the actions of a few members of that race kind of racist?
Does racism have any other definition than that?
I think reparations should have happened a long time ago. Black people did get screwed by slavery
