The Case for Reparations: An Intellectual Autopsy
Four years ago, I opposed reparations.
Here's the story of how my thinking has evolved since then.

The Case for Reparations

Two hundred fifty years of slavery. Ninety years of Jim Crow. Sixty years of separate but equal. Thirty-five years of racist housing policy. Until we reckon with our compounding moral debts, America will never be whole.

Big Ups and thanks a bunch brother oldsoul, this definitely assists and is blowing up all over the place ... Melissa Harris Perry carried it this morning on her show also.

Here it is on her fb:

And this, fresh off the press, lol:


Why It’s Time for America to Get Real About Reparations for Black Folks

Just like religion and politics, reparations is one of those divisive topics most Americans steer clear of in public. The mention of the word conjures up a myriad of issues—slavery, racism, discrimination, the source of the money—that, in our “post-racial” Obama era, we like to believe belong firmly in our nation’s troubled past.

But while we grapple with the growing unrest surrounding income inequality and what that means for the waning middle class (read white male blue-collar workers), with “The Case for Reparations,” a provocatively titled cover story for The Atlantic, Ta-nehisi Coates moves far beyond the traditional notions of calling for a financial payout for blacks. Instead, Coates illustrates that through systematic violence and discriminatory government policies and laws—not just racist ideas held by bigoted citizens—black Americans have been and continue to be handicapped.
