Good looking out bro. omowalejabali, and thanks big time, for real. I had noticed the disclaimer and decided not to give; instead, I will be getting with the Restitution Study Group and/or Deadria C. Farmer-Paellmann with my gift.

Wachovia admits slave trade profits

After initially denying ties to slavery in January, executives at Wachovia Bank disclosed in a June 2 report that the bank's predecessor institutions — the Bank of Charleston, S.C., and the Georgia Railroad and Banking Company — "owned" at least 162 enslaved Africans and accepted 529 more as "collateral" on loans.

The 111-page report was prepared by the History Factory, a firm specializing in corporate archival work. It also revealed that war financier Robert Morris — a founder of a forerunner institution, Bank of North America — used profits from the slave trade to start Wachovia in 1781.

Clyde,

The information herein contained is useful; thanks for posting it.

At my core, I don't feel as if we will ever get justice here. This place was founded (We came before Columbus) and built by us, but its systems, psychology and entitlements are not designed for us.

I think my future - and that of my family - is probably elsewhere.

kde,

Thank you for your honest sentiment concerning Reparations and the appreciation for the information. No one can argue against your statement, it is the truth:

This place was founded (We came before Columbus) and built by us, but its systems, psychology and entitlements are not designed for us.

And I wish you and your family well, as you pursue expatriation (repatriation)...Peace In my sister friend, for real.

Slave Descendant Takes Reparations Case to the United States Supreme Court
Restitution Study Group 23 May 2007 18:57 GMT




Deadria Farmer-Paellmann with attorney Bruce Afran



On Tuesday, May 22, 2007, the Supreme Court of the United States docketed a petition filed by Deadria Farmer-Paellmann -- the descendant of Africans enslaved in South Carolina -- asking the Court to hear a case against 17 major financial institutions for their role in financing, underwriting and supporting slavery. At issue is whether statues of limitations should be tolled to permit slave descendants to bring actions for restitution against the corporations that allegedly earned profits enslaving Africans in violation of Northern antislavery laws. The case is entitled, Farmer-Paellmann v. Brown & Williamson, No. 06-1533. The defendants in the action include: FleetBoston Financial Corporation, Aetna Inc., JP Morgan Chase Manhattan Bank, New York Life Insurance Co., Lehman Bros, AIG, and Brown Brothers Harriman.

"It is a pivotal moment for African Americans and all people, and we believe the Court should hear the case, said Bruce Afran, counsel for Farmer-Paellmann. Co-counsel Carl Mayer added,"the issues presented are unique and are important in settling a long running injustice."

Adding to the absence of information identifying the defendants as slave profiteers is the fact that many of the defendants continue to deny that they played a role in slavery. Farmer-Paellmann argues in her petition, "most dastardly were the public false statements made by representatives of the JP Morgan Chase Bank denying, as late as March 5, 2004, that they were at all involved in slavery." Months later, after threat of loosing lucrative vending contracts with the City of Chicago, the bank filed a report admitting to their role in slavery.
