    Aghreed, Slaves didn't kill Yankees, that would be confederate states, so in keeping with your principle when are the Confederate states going to pay their descendants?

    Me too. So until someone shows up and works on my property I’m not paying. I’m also going to need some labor for the welfare I have already provided.

    Not really. First anyone dumb enough to believe a Black man was the first slave owner in the US should be tested for retardation. Secondly the government would be paying any reparations.

    Interesting concept since I’m the one that pays for the government.

    Why would I do that when I'm not even in Africa and when I'm not even demanding the US pay reparations for allowing the enslavement of my ancestors?

    I don't owe you a penny, My Government doesn't either, you were never a slave, no one in the Government ever held you as a slave nor protected anyone else that has slaves.

    You get money back on your tax returns so youre not paying anything. It takes everyone to pay for the debt whites caused.
