16. The article is not about money

It exposes the racial policies and crimes committed against blacks during reconstruction, the early jim crow era, the seperate-but-equal era and in fairly recent times that were sanctioned, to be frank, by the government through HUD housing policies and non-actions, and even New Deal policies which banned social security for domestic and rural farm workers black maids and black sharecroppers, etc.

So please read it. No one is talking about any big checks. It does however go into how other countries handled and made reparations to wronged people. For some reason the US won't even entertain anything liike that for blacks but made reparations for Japanese Americans who were interned doing WWII.

Guess the feeling among many whites is blacks couldn't possibly deserve it.

These are the very kinds of people who need to read the article.
