    Thanks Sunni for the idea (sorta) re: 40 acres and a mule. :)

    For.

    We kidnapped them, enslaved them, should pay backwages. Fair's fair.

    The whole idea is ludicrous.

    The fact is only a small percentage of whites owned slaves as well as a small percentage of blacks. So to reap reparation from a race of people that had nothing to do with slavery but were involved in freeing them is plain stupid.

    Who is the coward that voted "for"?

    I bet he's black!

    I'm white actually.

    Kidnapping is a criminal offense, while at the time slavery wasn't, on the criminal count alone reparations are justified.

    Slave owners didn't kidnap anyone, they bought those slaves with hard earned money. If a criminal act was made it was made in Africa out of US jurisdiction.

    But for the sake of argument, let's see your evidence.

    Sure fair is fair, anyone alive today who was a slave should be paid for the time enslaved.

    Actually - even if any were alive it would be unconstitutional as the Constit. prohibits Ex post facto laws.

    And descendants of slaves generally have a much healhier and higher standard of living in North America than had they born among the tribes of their ancestors in Africa
