Response to brush (Reply #16)

17. Has to involve some kind of monetary reparation. The Japanese-Am got $1.6 billion.

 

A sudden big check in the hands of the poor can do more harm than good. Another reparation idea might be free business subsidies and loans.

From Wikipedia: President Ronald Reagan signed into law the Civil Liberties Act, which apologized for the internment on behalf of the U.S. government and authorized a payment of $20,000 to each individual camp survivor. The legislation admitted that government actions were based on "race prejudice, war hysteria, and a failure of political leadership".[13] The U.S. government eventually disbursed more than $1.6 billion in reparations to 82,219 Japanese Americans who had been interned and their heirs.[12][14]
