Excellent article/interview. And I agree that most of you haven't a clue as to what reparations is all about: a debt owed - repairing the gap in opportunities that was caused by racism. There are reparations made by murderers to the families of the victims. Reparations happen all the time. And ever since slavery was outlawed, there have been many African-American leaders suggest policies and solutions to repair the incredible gap, but the U.S. government hasn't supported those ideas, for instance carving out a new country for those forced by slavery to enter this country. We did it for Israel, carving out for them a place in Palestine. We restored Europe after World War II. Kuwait was carved out of Iraq. What have we done for Mexican, African and American Indian slaves? I would argue not much.
