It was white individuals that owned slaves, not the government. So according to the reparations logic, white individuals should back their black fellow citizens directly. This would help even up white privilege AND back for the past in one swift action!
So here's my solution to reparations:
Some considerations that I'm sure as a group we can figure out:
At what age should the recipient of the reparation program be? Do infants count? When in history do the reparations end? For instance - should each new white baby be assigned a new black baby?
Should this be left up to the states or is this a federal matter?
What happens if a white person and a black person are married - and each are descendants? Can they each other?
Reparations are a stick-up. I should get money from the Mongols because they slaughtered my 23rd great-grandmother? Shouldn't they be seeking reparations from the tribes in Africa that sold them to the slave traders? Shouldn't todays sexual slaves get reparations from their holders? Shouldn't victims of crimes get reparations from the person that harmed them?
