Mar 12 - United Nations say the U.S. owes reparations for slavery and mass incarceration

A UN-affiliated group based out of Geneva says that after a history of slavery, the US owes reparations to African-Americans.

This recommendation was part of a study by the United Nations’ Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent. This group reports to the international organization’s High Commissioner on Human Rights. They provided their findings to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday. They found that present injustices found around the country are linked to the darkest chapters in US history.

“In particular, the legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the United States remains a serious challenge, as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent,” the report read. “Contemporary police k!llings and the trauma that they create are reminiscent of the past racial terror of lynching.”

When discussing the many k!llings of unarmed black men at the hands of police the report warned against “impunity for state violence,” which has created, what they call a “human rights crisis” that “must be addressed as a matter of urgency.”

“Despite substantial changes since the end of the enforcement of Jim Crow and the f!ght for civil rights, ideology ensuring the domination of one group over another, continues to negatively impact the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of African Americans today,” it said. “The dangerous ideology of white supremacy inhibits social cohesion amongst the US population.”

The report talks about the extrajudicial murders that came from an era of white supremacy:

“Lynching was a form of racial terrorism that has contributed to a legacy of racial inequality that the United States must address. Thousands of people of African descent were k!lled in violent public acts of racial control and domination and the perpetrators were never held accountable.”

The reparations that the report suggested could manifest in a number of different ways. They could include “a formal apology, health initiatives, educational opportunities … psychological rehabilitation, technology transfer and financial support, and debt cancellation.”

Interesting read.... It'll never happen though.

Too many rather call us lazy and violent than to deal with facts.

They couldn't afford to do it. That whole 40 acres and a male was a farce. I'm against giving money to the people directly. What I'm for is putting money into communities. Deals for starting a business, money going I to education, better housing options, things that will help try to get them on equal terms. Never will happen though. This country wasn't designed for certain to be equal.

My friend suggested they should pump money into the communities, have high quotas for black employment, and remove income tax from black people for a couple of decades. Then also make higher learning either free or heavily discounted.


but again, would never happen. Be lucky to get a coupon to Starbucks.

I'm cool with lifetime tuition free schooling for any school, first dibs & no waiting line for business loans or no interest rates, no property taxes for a certain amount of time like 20-30 years. I'm also cool with stetting up casinos or some sh*t, where all the proceeds go directly to the black community in some form or fashion.

We need our reparations, everybody else done got theirs and we literally fu*king built this nation off of our sweat.
we should be allowed to run lottos legally too in our neighborhoods and those adjacent to them.

Give us free higher education and no taxes and blacks dominate in 20 to 25 years.

The only issue would be how do we get the older people off the Jesus stuff. There will be a big push from the church to stay the same but black people need serious therapy for knowledge of self.

It won't happen though do your history on what happened after they signed the Emancipation Proclamation.

Personally, I'm not allowed to have much of an opinion on it, but I agree, I think fixing structural problems would provide a greater benefit than simply increasing the net worth of each citizen by $50,000 or however much it'd be.

They gave money to Jews who they did nothing to, they give money to he native Americans, and to the Japanese for internment. The people they enslaved 11 million, zilch. Affirmative action, and they mad at that

giving people in poor conditions a boat-load of money would be an extremely short-term solution, as most people in poverty would just blow the money on dumb sh*t and be back at square 1 in no-time

like a poster above said, investing that money into black-owned or giving out business loans to qualified aspiring black entrepreneurs would be much wiser


but obviously, none of this wuld actually happen

My mom was a student back in the 80s who got to go to college with money set aside for education, until Reagan cut it. She said it was the only time in her life she was sad that the shooter's aim was off. I'm down with seeing it come back.

Daily reminder that American Japanese people got reparations for internment camps during WWII —- twice.

Considered property for 4 centuries and we get a grand total of: nothing.

We don’t even get a “my bad” holiday like the aboriginals get in Australia.

No formal apology by the nation, no reparations, no holiday — nothin’.

I’m sorry but if you’re black n you in the army, my n*gga, you need to do some real soul searchin.

This is the problem anyway because the money is waisted when you put it into programs that go to the very wealthy. Giving people money directly still causes that money to cycle through the economy so why not?

We always give money to the banks even if they fu*k up instead of giving to the people who are hurt.

Mannn that stuff happened a long time ago. Its best to just move on and quit wasting breaths on this stuff that will never happen.

Also, if you run lottos in your neighborhoods that will only make them poorer.

I'm sorry but how did you suffer? Slavery been illegal. MLK is a holiday. Those black in the army will get a free education. Best thing to do is move on.

4 centuries of an ethnicity being considered a tangible good has near irreperable damage to the public perception of said ethnicity. Nevermind how social politics, to this day, are influenced by that initial perception of black people=disposable goods — e.g. redlining.

That same perception is why, up until the 60s, black people weren’t alloted the same public rights as white people.

You seem like a frustratingly stupid person, so allow me to break it down for you:
4 centuries is 400 years. Do you think you can just wipe away the public perception of an entire ethnic group from the collective consciousness of a country that’s been held for 400 years?

Can you even quantify 400 years? You can’t even quantify the concept of residual racism so I know you can’t even conceive 400 years of instutionalized racism.

And those 400 years just mark when we(not you) were considered property. Once we were emancipated in the mid-late 19th century, we(not you) were subjected to abject racism that prohibited us(not you) from ever establishing a foundation in a country rooted in the political theory of being “self-sustained”.

Black people weren’t given loans to start their own business; when black people tried to move to better neighborhoods, they were barred from moving there; when blacks wanted to move to the city, they were allocated to only certain parts of the city(redlining) and were charged much higher rent than their white counterparts that lived in the same neighborhood.

So, to summate:

I know the country's history. I also know if I do something to wrong someone, my great great grandson don't need to be apologizing for it. If I didnt apologize, thats on me to my grave and I'll get dealt with.

If someone did me wrong and don't apologize then I need to find it in my heart to forgive so I can release that hate that's built up. Trust me, your life will be better without that built up hate.

It's time to move on and live for today. If there are injustices happening today to black men and women, then that should be approached but looking back scores and centuries ago is not beneficial.

You’re offensively stupid. Nothing you said correlates to anything I said. You didn’t speak on the social rammifications that slavery has on the perception of black people — your initial, stupid “point” — but instead your post hinges entirely on accountability.

It’s funny you use the “well, my grandkids shouldnt be paying for something they aint do” , despite you living in a country wherein your grandkids will literally pay for something they didn’t do.

If you don’t pay your taxes and you die, your next of kin have to pay. That’s law.

Yet somehow when it comes to cleaning the social palette of a wrong so erroneous that it spans centuries, you just gotta forgive n forget.

Again, you’re obscenely stupid.

And again:
@.

Don’t quote me anymore.
