An accepted practice by many countries over the millennia, the last country outlawed it in 1982. The fact is that whites enslaved whites, blacks enslaved blacks and the very first slave holders in America were Native American Indians. Perhaps the Indians should use some of their casino money to compensate their formerly enslaved red people? In order to have an objective discussion on American Slavery one needs to understand it in its larger context!

In the black community we have had an influential convicted black person advocating for the black community to take increasing responsibility and control over their lives while another influential convicted black person is advocating that the black community take a slave reparations check instead. At the end of the day White Americans need to do a much better job of finally integrating it’s black citizens which is long over due! But throwing money at folks who were never slaves is just another form of income redistribution.

And that is all I’m going to say about that.
