Wonder if these people would sing a different song if they found out that their ancestors were owned by Black slave owners.
Reparations for slavery is the most asinine of all the woke theories. It is realistically unworkable. There is almost no humans alive that can't trace both slave owners and slaves in their family history. Slavery has been enacted on every race on the face of the planet. Even in the chattel slave trade the slaves were supplied by Africans selling their neighboring tribesmen (blacks selling blacks) and as I've been told Black people can't be racist. This means that the slave trade was not racist. We can look back at the time and see that many Europeans were sending white slaves here as well. At the same time massive slavery of whites was occuring in Middle eastern countries in alarming numbers. In America we had many of the largest slave owners that were black. We had a large slave population of Asians used to construct the railroads. American Indians took slaves from conquered tribes. Saying that slavery is a racial issue is to be ignorant of the history of slavery.🤷🏾♂️ If you wanted the descendants of slaves owners to pay the descendants of slaves everyone would have to pay themselves.
Next step African nations will demand compensation. Everyone should do their family tree. Find a coloured ancestor, make a claim. Bankrupt the ridiculous system they want implemented.

No reparations without separation.
They were sold into slavery by other Africans. Go ask them. Btw real slavery is still going on in many of those countries. The woke seem very unconserned about that. That and real life concentration camps in china. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery_in_the_21st_century
I'll buy you a beer and listen to your rant and exchange views, but that is far as i am willing to go down that rabbit hole. It has not been easy for any of us to grab a piece of the american dream. Best of luck to all!
