    How should we be paid?


    Should we demand monetary compensation for each and every AfroAmerican?
    Or should we demand a incentives and certain privaledges for our people?
    How long would the programs last?


    As tempting as it sounds....

    Rather than cutting every AfroAmerican a check, I think we should be compensated in a way that reverses the damage done to us in our sojourn here.

    The United States should also work with the nations of Latin America who also benefited from and participated in slavery by doing the same for there citizens of African descent.


    I would suggest tax breaks, free education, and free health care for all AfroAmericans for atleast 400 years.

    peace,

    I appreciate your ideas..........but whosw education?

    - tax breaks??? we don't pay taxes now, our money is TAKEN from us b4 we even see it so no one pays taxes brother. money for tax reasons (supposedly) are STOLEN from us weekly & or Bi-weekly!!!!!!!!!!

    I do agree that we should not want a check, but rather Repair (reparations) in another form but I wouldn't hold my breath brotha!!!!

    peace

    Respect

    Knowledge is knowledge bro.

    Science, math, medicine...all of these arts are necessarily for us to function on the high end of a society as a people.

    I'm not a degreed man, but I do respect the purposes that universities and colleges serve in preparing some of us for employment and networking with the outside world.

    If we're gonna continue to live in this country and in a Western society, it will be to our advantage to try to master it as best as we can until we get our own.



    I agree, we don't have a choice in the matter.

    This is even more of a reason why we should demand tax breaks as ONE OF the forms of reparations.
