Reparations? For what? Not for slavery, which is generations in the past; yet, when considering Jim Crow and the efforts by the conservatives to whine loudly about Affirmative Action, which not only benefited people of color, but women too, there is some merit in considering all those who suffered, and continue to suffer hate and fear, ought to receive some consideration. However, if the consideration is a check, I would oppose that. But let's be clear, the glass ceiling has been broken through at the last election, and the H. or Rep. has a duty to keep their promises and pass legislation to create training for 21st century jobs, increase the minimum wage, close the wages gap, and expose the hate and fear promulgated by the election of trump. Equal Rights and equal opportunities are the goal, and the Golden Rule is not now and never has been the goal of communism or fascism.
