    Warren And Harris Want To Pay Slave Descendants Reparations

    To the tune of trillions of dollars. Next probably comes Native Americans and the Japanese. Where's all that money going to come from? Warren wanted a wealth tax to pay for childcare so I guess this money isn't coming from the wealthy. Then we've also got Medicare For All and free college.

    who knows. She can declare a national emergency and take what she wants from wherever - thanks to the GOP.

    This is certainly not a binary issue, and I understand the ambivalence from both sides, but what's your argument against reparations?

    Americans of Japanese heritage who were interned already compensated.

    You should really consider learning history. I recommend it to everyone.

    That bill was paid with the blood of the civil war soldiers that freed the slaves.

    Maybe black americans should be taxed and the money paid to decendents of those soldiers.

    At what DNA percentage is the cut off? Does 5% of sub-Saharan African suffice? Or does one have to prove ancestry line like for Native Americans?

    Awful idea, way too many consequences to this thinking.

    The reparations concept very closely resembles a class action lawsuit. How would you precisely define the plaintiff class and the defendant class? Would each member of the defendent class be required to pay the same amount? Would each member of the plaintiff class recieve the same amount?

    Wow!

    Just, wow.

    I honestly do enjoy that you bring a different perspective on this, it's just comes off hateful and narrow in perspective. You seem to ignore the racism post Civil War that has resulted in generations of poverty.
