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.

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.
