Native Americans were paid, Japanese were paid and apologized to, and also some marginalized groups within the caucasian community were paid. It's high time we get our fair share. Every moneymaking operation in this country is built upon slavery.

The discussion here is why we need to have the arguments of reparations presented in terms of the vestiges of slavery and not the act itself. Like most narratives, White America wants to write and present the story relative to slavery alone, thus the argument can always be “I didn’t own slaves.” But once you present the argument in the terms of how slavery has evolved and the mentally that created and propagated it has integrated into all institutions in America, then the argument about I did not have slaves has no merit. It has no merit because it will… Read more »

COLEMAN HUGES said that America teaches correctness when it comes to the history of blacks in this country. He know's thats a LIE. Basic educational school books give you fractions and the light- hearted versions of Black in American history. In certain states….LIKE TEXAS…they tried to wipe certain parts of slavery and the history of racial Justice toward blacks in history books. I MEAN, this is facts. The school boards in certain locations, actually attempted this. You really don't learn the detains of American history if you search on your own, or get a higher education. And then still…you have… Read more »

Its sad, that certain BLACK REPUBLICANS, get they're black faces on NATIONAL TV, and say the dumbest things, when it comes to the representation out black culture and history. It's amazing. All for a check. COLEMAN HUGHES and BURGESS OWENS, are just another STACY DASH, and CANDICE OWENS….and a KANYE WEST, on his days off. Trust me….I wont forget these folks for future reference. And a few others idiots.

This issue always points me to the reparations paid to Japanese Americans for being placed in Internment camps during WW2. IN 1988 RONALD Reagan apologized and the surviving person or their descendants were paid $20000 a family for being incarcerated for 5 years in these camps. So why is reparations for 400 years out of the question? By the way you can verify what I'm saying on Wikipedia. That's where I found it.

Dr. Claud Anderson should be on the panel. We must no what we want and have a national plan to implement the well deserved reparations. We want the Native American reparations. Study what reparate Don’t stagnate put some biscuits on the plate. We don’t need flowery commentary. White society owes a debt pay it. They told Dr. MARTIN to wait. If not now when. I hear sincere ignorance or conscience stupidity from some oh yeah where is the CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCAS😤

They have taken crafty counsel against thy people and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said come let us cut them off from being a nation that the name Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent. They are confederate against thee.
