Yes, of course


Could Reparations Help Close the American Racial Divide?
The racial divide continues to plague America. It is well worth spending a large amount of funds—if it can finally be healed


Specific suggestions for reparations tend to involve large sums of money being allocated to individuals, communities, or institutions. Scholars William Darity and Dania Frank propose five different options for reparations: lump sum payments; grants for asset-building projects; vouchers for asset-building projects; in-kind reparations such as guaranteed higher education funding; and funding to build new institutions in black communities...

No.

1. Money wont stop someone who hates you from hating you.

2. It will stoke more resentment.

3. Many will blow the money.

4. The payments will let them off the hook, thus continuing the racism.

Money won't stop someone who hates you from brutalizing or killing you either! You mean to tell me that there are 'conscious minds', who actually believe we will get reparations without a physical fight? How politically naive! A very petty bourgeois idea! The PanAfrikanists' vision is a sovereign state in this country!!! Rev. King's dream is and always has been a nightmare for most of us!

1619+400=2019 Jamestown Virginia...end of slavery. (Yes modern miseducation and injustices count as slavery) But no proper reparations will be given since the amount of contributions beyond humanity transcends generations. Our people have history that is equal to trillions of dollars including Melanin research and its supernatural power.
I want my people to be aware of this dilemma regarding the upcoming election... I know politics. Yes Trump is admitting the truth about Black People building this so called country corporation (The United States). But you must understand that what they're planning on doing is to divide and conquer. This is all just for him to get re-elected. He's going to promise reparations and reneg at the last minute.
