    Well, if the U.N. says we gotta pay reparations, we gotta pay reparations. Might as well ban guns while we're at it. I mean, it's the U.N., right? We must obey the U.N.

    Speaking of Hitler and Bent, I saw a play called "Bent" years ago. About gays in a concentration camp. It was OK.

    Better include the white slaves then, which do exist but get talked about far less. Probably due to racism and classism...

    The UN must think the slaves and slaveowners are still alive or something. Idk that would be the only logical explanation here.

    This sounds like a good plan, the African Nations that sold their people as slaves should pay reparations.

    In all seriousness, if the ancestors of current African-Americans had not been brought over as slaves, would they be better off today in the US or better off still living in Africa?

    Kick UN out of manhattan and use the building as a federal holding facility for all of our corrupt politicians. Hillary can be the first one in there, followed quickly by the former Speaker of the house, I forget his name, the guy with the pink ties who cried a lot. Then pellet and boxer and Feinstein can follow.

    John Bainer. That was the guy.

    And the best part is that 6th grace field trips can still go there. But instead of watching useless speeches and cash being burned, they can watch shamed politicians rot in jail cells for eternity.

    How about the UN concentrate on the slavery and human sex trafficking that is actually still going on?

    I'd love to see the UN go into Saudi Arabia and tell them to pay reparations to the women they've been mistreating for hundreds and hundreds of years.

    The issue of reparations is a highly controversial one.

    However, despite the historical wrongs that undoubtedly were perpetrated on millions of African-American people, there simply is no practical, legal, or socially acceptable method for the direct payment of financial restitution to the present-day descendants of those people.

    Is it fair to ask the descendants of Irish, Polish, and Mexican immigrants to this country, immigrants who themselves took no part in the institution of slavery, and who also suffered discrimination, to pay higher taxes as a result? How does one determine eligibility to receive compensation? Would Barack Obama, for instance, whose black father was a Kenyan whose antecedents were presumably spared the horrors of American Antebellum slavery, be eligible for reparations?

    Reparations, no matter how well-intentioned, or even historically justifiable, would be an utter disaster for this country.

    Far better, in my opinion, to make every effort to ensure that African-American children, and indeed children of every race and ethnicity, grow up in a country with high-quality education for all. With access to health-care. To quality housing, free from pollution. crime, and social disintegration.

    If reparation for slavery is to be made, let it be done in the form of public funding for education, for healthcare, and for infrastructure and public works that ensure that all Americans have a reasonable opportunity to succeed in our economy and our society. Fix Flint, Michigan's water pipes and schools. Don't hand the residents of that city a check. We'll all be better of as a result.
