    It is about time a government acknowledged this unspeakable crime, and worked to correct it! Now if only the rest of Western & Northern Africa can follow suit!!

    Are you saying that they dont need reparations?? that only if the Arabs get out of Africa than everything will be alright.

    I would think that with the discussion on this board about reparations for AA's than most on this board would be all over this. If AA's need reparations for injustices done to our ancestors than I would think someone newly released from slavery is most deffinitly entiteled to reparations in no less than the form of a full education free and clear...

    I somehow doubt you care Kingpin. You don't strike me as a person with a indepth knowledge of African history, Africa experiences, or a connection with Africa in any form. I bet you don't even know what PanAfricanism is! Should these people be compensated? Of course! They should seek this compensation from the Arabs that were responsible for their enslavement. However I don't think you really care whether these Africans receive reparations of not. No your intention is to discredit the argument of African American reparations. Well how are you going to accomplish that over here? Don't try to cause a distraction somewhere else because you can't win that argument! This situation doesn't change the fact your argument against reparations for African Americans is poor, and your knowledge of history is inept!

    1.2% of Nigers population is Arab. out of 11 million people that equates to about 130 thousand is that really going to make that big of a difference in Niger???

    I have to say that if you heard someone say all blacks need to get out of Europe what would you say? Not everyone acts the same way, you can not lump everyone of one ethnicity together because some are bad. is that not what everyone here fights for every day??

    Well it looks like someone did a country facts search on google! South Africa's white population is about 5% of the country. So by your reasoning it is impossible for them to have oppressed the majority black population? Blacks aren't oppressing people in Europe so your comparison is as weak and inadequate as your argument against reparations!
