    I can see future lawyer ads on TV telling blacks they can get them reparations (for a 40% cut, of course.)
    Well, we already know where the American Bar Association stands on this issue.

    You'd have to look up the going wage for a soldier back then.

    I dont know exactly. Since I dont believe white people have the integrity to pay their debts I have never held my breath over how many millions my ancestors unpaid wages probably amount to by now.
