I am still waiting for a candidate promoting reparations to explain how it works. who pays, who receives, etc.I'm pretty sure all they want is the lump sum, distribution is a liberalsecret when the Clinton's get their share and so on and on......
As I have said before, and I believe it bears repeating, whoever would get Reparations, whatever nature they would be, would remain unhappy if not be more unhappy and less satisfied because they would not have gotten what they felt they should have got. Look at the number of people (whites) that thought electing the first minority as President would help and remedy race relations. I submit that Race relations took a distinctive dive under Obama. For one thing any condemnation of Obama or his policies or administration immediately became labeled as racist or racially inspired.
The same will happen if every some form of reparations was approved. Relations wouldn't be better but would be much worse. On one part the people who received those reparations would say they were cheated and it wasn't enough (it never will be enough). Other's would be upset because they were forced to pay something, having never did anything themselves to people who never directly suffered from the initial offense in the first place. Third there will be countless numbers of people who suffered who will never be repaid anything for their suffering and those are the white descendants of those killed fighting for the North who were killed account of the unCivil War.
