    We Absolutely Could Give Reparations To Black People. Here's How.

    A step-by-step guide to paying the descendants of enslaved Africans.

    Simply put, reparations are due to the millions of black Americans whose families have endured generations of discrimination in the United States. Most black Americanscount among their ancestors people who endured chattel slavery, the ultimate denial of an individual's humanity.
    William Darity, a public policy professor at Duke University who has studied reparations extensively, proposes two specific requirements for eligibility to receive a payout.
    First, at least 10 years before the onset of a reparations program, an individual must have self-identified on a census form or other formal document as black, African-American, colored or Negro. (So no "mixed" or "zebra", etc?)
    Second, each individual must provide proof of an ancestor who was enslaved in the U.S.
    (How many of us can "prove" this?)
