I don't think people "deserve" anything, and reparations this late in the game seem like a bad idea.

i think we deserve it only because the jewish, the native americans, and the japanese americans got reparations. fair is fair. if they got some, we should get some too only because our shit was way worse. make it official like theirs. thats all im saying.

Yes. Every major bank, and insurance industry got its start off the slave trade and been goin strong since. Our ancestors deserved to be rightly compensated for their labor, we as their descendants have a right to collect on their behalf.
However we as a people still have too much of a slave mind to do anything proper with them. Most of us would spend it on fucking sneakers and whips and rims for whips, and get gucci with the fits. That money would be back in white folks hands before the year is out.
If we didn't have a slave mind, we would've already had our reparations as we wouldn't have let the country rest until we got it. Which is why Johnny Cochran was killed. he was working on just how much Blacks were owed [enough to bankrupt america]
