and many ppl who's ancestors were never even here when that went down.
One of my pals is from Barbados , he came here (via Canada)to compete in Body building in the 80's. He always said that none of his ancestors were ever slaves, they were just sailing men from Africa who settled in Barbados pre ww2.
My other pal (pals, 6 of them) parents came from Ireland in the 60's to flee the war there (or the British police lol) should they have to pay?
Should all the WW2 refugees have to pay? The Jews who were slave labor for Hitler?
Should Lionel Ritchie have to pay because he has slave owner blood in him as seen in"Who do you think you are" documentary ?
Should Quakers have to pay because they were abolitionist and Quaker meeting houses were "safe houses" for runaway slaves.
Should ancestors of ppl who died to fight slavery in the war have to pay?
Lets say everyone agrees the great great great great grandchildren of slavery should get 40 acres and a mule per family, then and equally divide amongst the ppl now, are you going to give them each a postage stamp sized piece of land?
Lets say you are going to give them cash, how much? who is going to decide the amount? Congress? LOL.They cant decide what to eat for lunch. But say they do...
are we going to get rid of affirmative action? Are people on SSI , welfare etc going to be thrown off because the laws stipulate any assets over a certain amount disqualifies you..
