Are these smaller scale reparations more realistic?

I think the timing on these reparations is a little off. We should wait another 150 years or so until the timing is just right.

Everyone will be so "woke" in 150 years they will never need to sleep. The only word in the vernacular will be "racist."

I don't see slave reparations or any other type of reparations happening on a national level. Instead reparations targeted at specific Black groups is more likely to happen.

It was pretty deplorable what the jesuits did to them but I don’t see reparations, I was thinking that American Indians would be first in the list.

I think every liberal in the US should give everything they own to blacks and American Indians.


It would make all groups very happy and is a win-win situation.

I'm fine with private institutions trying slave reparations but the logistics are difficult. For example, GU's reparations funds come from tuition increase paid by students of all races and nationalities. I think reparations should be pursed for specific events - maybe a state paying the descendants of someone lynched by a mob, etc.

That would be quick and easy.

I don't understand why the government needs to be involved.

White people are free to find a black person and hand over whatever assuages their guilt without waiting on the government.

Maryanne Williamson could have just pulled out her checkbook and wrote a check to Kamala Harris right there on the debate stage. Wait - maybe they debated on separate nights. That would be even better - just walk in on the other debate, make a quick spiritual statement and hand her and Cory Booker a check.

A friend of mine went to Georgetown. When Patrick Ewing (start black center on basketball team) went there students would hold up a sign when he was at the foul line that said " Patrick you cant read this". So much for Georgetown class.
