    In the true Spirit of Sankofa,


    U.S. owes black people reparations for a history of ‘racial terrorism,’ says U.N. panel


    The history of slavery in the United States justifies reparations for African Americans, argues a recent report by a U.N.-affiliated group based in Geneva.

    This conclusion was part of a study by the United Nations' Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, a body that reports to the international organization's High Commissioner on Human Rights. The group of experts, which includes leading human rights lawyers from around the world, presented its findings to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday, pointing to the continuing link between present injustices and the dark chapters of American history.

    You know, I'm beginning to wonder...and I don't think that African Americans are going to be prepared for what really might happen though, in regards to how the government is planning to deal with Reparations.

    yes, considering everything that is happening in America and the world, I am beginning to see a pattern, I started looking at scripture, and I'm beginning to see a serious pattern and I think history is repeating. I think this government is using the term 'Reparations' but, they are doing other things under this heading, some of it may turn out for good though, I wonder about the intentions of this government and the United Nations. I don't think they all are using this terms for our benefit at all.

    I think that in all sectors, police force, United Nations and etc. there are people with good intentions, but there is a serious set up going on. What happened in Europe and even much farther back in time is getting ready to repeat. But again, based on scripture, it might backfire on those people with ill intent.

    I can see a serious connection with how this system is using certain 'things' to incite African Americans and they are reporting these things to the world and there is a serious connection with what is going on in the Middle East and Africa. I think this government and the world organizations have been setting up 'something' for awhile now and what is going on in African and the Middle East is all apart of their plans...and President Obama is apart of this planning, based on my understanding of scripture.

    Maybe, in some regards, this government should not call it Reparations, but perhaps, 'Expulsion' or 'Exodus' or 'the Spanish Inquisition'...I wouldn't be surprised if they call it 'a secret operation' like 'Operation Solomon' for those who believe they are Israelites and offer 'Reparations' as a form of a ticket back to Israel. I wouldn't be surprised if they offer those who claim they want to go back to the motherland a ticket back to Africa someplace set up like Liberia...and offer a ticket to someplace in Europe as a form of reparations...and then good luck for those who remain behind...

    this is what happened in Europe and before...

    Ordinarily, I'd say, way to go, good outside the box thinking, but in this case, you may be onto something Chevron, inside the Bible box.

    Bro. Clyde I see you are still doing you. The reparations thread is evolving . I've seen talk about reparations in many different media outlets over the past months.

    :thinking:
    Arianne, you may be thinking of Repatriation, not Reparations.
