so if Britain was to pay reparations that means that even people of colour in the Uk will pay for reparations with their taxes ?
or is it just white UK taxpayers who have to pay reparations ?

They benefited from the cotton. So, yes.

If EVERYONE who benefited from slavery is guilty, then they are also guilty.

Never going to happen and it would only be a couple of hundred bucks per person and would cost way more than that to sort it all out.

Fewer than 350,000 enslaved people were imported into the Thirteen Colonies and the U.S., constituting less than 5% of the twelve million enslaved people brought from Africa to the Americas. The great majority of enslaved Africans were transported to sugar colonies in the Caribbean and to Brazil.

350,000 will have a few million decedents alive to divide the pie with. Pieces will be really small

So it has probably already been paid out in college scholarships and via the welfare system?

(Probably paid out several times over, by now.)
