Here is an article that you should read:
Ta-Nehisi Coates shows at length and in depth the extent of the historical and continuing injustice being done to African Americans.  He makes a convincing case that the continuing insult of centuries of institutional overt racism have denied African Americans their fair share of the wealth of the wealthiest nation on earth.  He doesn't have a suggestion on what form the repayment should take, but after reading the article it is blindingly obvious a huge debt is owed.

  1. Well, it's negative about these United States, so you're still cool.
    I haven't read it yet, but I just saw Ta-Nehisi Coates on MSNBC w/ some horrible stories of lawless honkies just stealing people blind.

    And I liked that he said, we'll give you slavery, but there's still a huge load of shit that happened afterwards that deserves reparations.
