My family got here [both sides] after 1900. We never owned a slave, or killed an Indian. And since MANY Americans got here around then too, I've got a news flash for the "Brothers". I don't owe you jack. The United States doesn't owe you jack. But if you want to play reparations, how about this:
We'll pay [pro rated for todays dollars] the value of slave labor before 1865. Exempted from the payout will be any Black who can't trace a direct line to a black enslaved until 1865.
In return, you will pay, accept a matching reduction from the reparations [and pay any sum not covered by such deduction] for: The cost of the U.S Navy's participation in the anti-slavery patrols before the Civil War, the cost of the Civil War from January 1st, 1863 [the implementation date of the Emancipation Proclamation] until its conclusion, the cost of Fedreal troops to enforce Reconstruction, the cost of the War on Poverty prorated for the percentage spent on Blacks, the costs of affirmative action [legal fees, etc]. We'll spot you the costs of incarcerating your more anti-social denizens, since that's good for us, too.
Sound good to you?
