This topic has been on my mind since bro oldsoul's class last week where he touched on us as black people being invested in the european system when we make claims to property and/or wealth in america. Our ancestors were enslaved and their labor helped fund the genocide of native americans in this land. In some cases such as the buffalo soldiers we helped the european impose his will on this land. Now, most of us benefit from that genocide especially when our living standards are contrasted with other black folk on the planet. If we own land in this country, or we own property, should we give reparations to native americans if we are to be consistent in our expectations that we are owed reparations? Does the fact our ancestors were oppressed and we are still dealing with oppression today ABSOLVE us from any accountability for benefiting from a stolen land?
