What if the nazi sold the belongings to buy an estate, which was then inherited by his son???

So if GM owes your father/grandfather money, then you are not entitled to it??

We agree that decedents are entitled to the benefits of their forefathers labor all the time..

That said I personally wouldn’t direct it at Private entities and would instead do a tax break.

Any African American who can trace their ancestry in America to before 1900ish doesn’t pay federal income taxes on their first 100k..

A predominately poor 13% of the population shouldn’t break the bank, but would be a 25+% raise for countless people in poverty.

It isn’t a hypothesis.. every slave society in history is required to fundamentally base their society around stopping rebellions..

Not just the south.. the roman’s were, South Africa was, you name it.

When your enslaving a large group of people,which always includes constant rapes and less frequent torture and brutality, the fear they will rise up and kill everyone is a feature not a bug.... and a perfectly logical fear, because “what would you do if the tables were turned..

As far as America specifically, You can watch it change in newspaper articles over the period from “violent slave upraisings” to “violent black uprisings”

And let's not forget that freed African American slaves had a popular back-to-Africa political movement when Native Americans were corralled into reservations (and unlike Africans at the time, they had roots in no other continents but the Americas - hence they're called "Native Americans" - duh).

And several thousands of freed black slaves were voluntarily taken back to Africa, where Liberia was to be their new country, and here they promptly enslaved the natives and repeated the plantation system of the southern US.

Are you saying “well if we take the craziest proposal anyone made, it would cost 1.7 trillion...”


How little thought do you have to put in to something to buy that lol?!?!

You are right. It will probably be double that

What would?!?!

You didn’t even remotely name a policy....

So say it is only a formal apology?

Would that cost 1.7 trillion??

Of course not.. it would cost the money to put it on TV..

I personally think it is VERY telling.. and very obvious..

Anything that could benefit black Americans instantly gets this massive push back regardless of the fundamentals..

The people who arguably got it the worst in America, certain Americans will just bend over backwards to keep them down...

The presently irrational fear of a “violent uprising “ is the only logical thing I can think of

Im 14% African, and I don't support it. It should have been done when they were set free, and paid for by plantation owners and all other slave owners
