White man ain't got nothing to fear from you.......
you too busy fighting your own Brothers.
Every brother ain't a brother! Least of all the unconscious ones who think that they are conscious, and are offended by questions that show their lack of consciousness!!! Smile

Initially, I didnt support reparations because of how they could be quantified as well as the fact throughout History peoplehave conquered each other so how do we decide who gets compensated.

The Historical chain of exploitation is endless.

However, after really understanding the nature of Slavery, I think its necessary.

Question is how do we go about determining whats owed?
Understanding the nature of slavery is a good start! I hope yours is an intellectual understanding based on research, and not an emotional one based on heresy!!!

No, any descendant of slaves having a net worth of 250,000 or more should not receive a pay out



Dream of reparations for slavery full of thorny problems

To determined what is owed, the calculation consists of the number of slaves (3,950,528), times a rate of pay or the value of 20 acres and a mule, times 400 yrs, which equals roughly 900 billion dollars...

Of course all numbers above are based on existing figures of or in 1865.

Good point though.

Man please, reparations will not be paid to any individuals! It will be paid to the separatist government we will establish in this country by any means necessary!!! Said government will use the money and land to build for the people! I know you probably think this will never happen, but happen it must, because Afrikans and Europeans have irreconcilable differences! We have never lived together in peace and harmony, and probably never will. We can govern ourselves. We've done it before!!!

No, it may happen. It just wont be as much as we think we deserve. Plus, it will let them off the hook



.
let "them" off the hook? lol. what hook are "they" on? lol smh No it won't happen and i'm an optimist. You couldn't even pry a gun from Charleston Heston's cold dead hands, and he was talking to other white people. You think you getting money from these people lol. I would be first in line to receive money because my ancestors clearly arrived in north carolina, that is my lineage. I'm also knowledgeable enough to know this reparations thing is never happening. Just like "we've" never be on the moon, we'll never see a dime.............................................unless we take it.

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.
