Its probably the dumbest concept in the history of dumb concepts.
Evidently you have proof that you had ancestors that were slaves that didn't get paid for their work.
Let's see....'Ass Lips' shipping costs on a related brother, if he can prove it, at that time in history, was $10 dollars; so after attorney fees, he gets a whole $6 dollahs!
You go, brother!
Not sure what that has to do with the descendants of Yankee soldiers getting paid reparations when they already got paid for being in the military.
A great many of the soldiers (including Black Americans) were volunteers. Do you think they enlisted for the money?
As a responsible parent, businessman and god-damn great civilian I believe that it is just and right to pay yer bills for services rendered..
I thought the fight was state vs. federal authority.
The problem still remains how do we make a transition politically and economically.
So the same solutions that would help transfer control
from federal back to state, would help with economic reforms
as necessary to address class disparity with Blacks and other minorities.
Today the issues of restitution are even broader and more diverse,
where taxpayers are owed billions if not trillions for abuses.
Demanding reimbursement or credits for taxmoney misspent
can be redirected toward financing jobs and programs in reforms,
corrections and sustainable solutions. Why don't we work on that?
If everyone has different grievances they want resolved,
let each party organize its own laundry list of damages.
Why not address them all?
So you are saying that the Civil war was fought to end slavery?
There are no classes in the US..
If they werent Black they were conned into joining just like so many are today. The enslaved being freed was not the original reason for the war. The original reason was to keep the union together. Freeing the slaves was a move done to hit the south in the pockets. I might add that the "slaves" that most the whites were fighting to free were white looking and billed as such. They took mixed children that looked white and portrayed them as being white on posters.
