    This was taken from the first paragraph of the article from the link you provided, which I am most definitely in favor of and can support....
    Mendes-France, the daughter of the Martinique-born writer and leading black intellectual Franz Fanon, clarified that she is not in favor individual payments, as the idea of reparations is often presented in America. She applauded efforts in the Caribbean to sue the British government for centuries of slavery, and recommended that reparations in the US be funneled through the financing and “full implementation of special programs based on education, socioeconomic, and environmental rights.”

    Yes, I've been aware of the UN's position for a minute now, but the point I was trying to make is this, because these young black folk ain't playing, one way are another, Reparations will become center focused, and the system will have to be dealt with:

    Georgetown University will give preference in admissions to the descendants of slaves owned by the Maryland Jesuits as part of its effort to atone for profiting from the sale of enslaved people, the president of the prominent Jesuit university in Washington announced Thursday.

    The announcement from President John DeGioia came as Georgetown released a report calling on its leaders to offer a formal apology for the university’s participation in the slave trade.

    If what you say is indeed true, slavery in America was regulated and justified by the rule of law, why did the government apologize, since no law was broken?

    Other than your words, is there anything you can point to that supports such an ambivalent, double answer to a singular question?

    To say, "they felt," sets up an emotional response that many find liking in racist minded individuals.

    How can something be
    inhumane, yet not break the rule of law?

    Please look over your words below and notice the double-speak ... Furthermore, Jim Crow Laws have nothing to do with promised Reparations. See: Special Field Order No. 15:


    The General William T. Sherman link to 40 acres and a mule, you listed above (below), isn't working, but here's another one, known as Special Field Order No. 15:

    "The whole "40 acres and a mule" story was promised by General William T. Sherman who met with twenty African American leaders who told him that land ownership was the best way for blacks to secure and enjoy their newfound freedom"

    America's black slave descendants will never receive one dime in reparations from the United States Government or any state or local governing body, the basic precept of slavery in America was regulated by in place governing bodies in the South & as such was justified by the rule of law. When slavery was deemed inhumane "Jim Crow Law" was enacted & acceptable in the eyes of already existing governing bodies. Jim Crow Law did not condone or prompt illegal acts against blacks which for the most part were committed by individuals or Pro White organizations that in no possible way represented local governing bodies. Even though the lead Pro White organization known as the Invisible Knights had numerous members of all facets of government in it's structure they in no way purported to represent themselves as members of the agencies that employed them. With this having been exhaustively debated by numerous organizations, groups, committees & councils that the prevailing & only acceptable theory is slavery of blacks in America & Jim Crow Law was not instigated by any renegade faction or illegal governing body acting as,engaging in, representing or enforcing public policy.
