38. Your first sentence makes the case even stronger for reparations

The Japanese American reparations were for "temporary" situations that went on for just a few years, yet they deserved reparations.

But according to your reasoning, something that went on for hundreds of years should just be ignored?

Does even make any since?

I'll put it this way a few years of oppression gets reparations vs hundreds of years gets nothing does that sound like justice to you?

And it won't break the country. We can come up with TRILLIONS to bail out the banks after the Bush years fiasco but to compensate a whole race of people who were denied pay for hundreds of years and that's just the slavery part, not the post war reconstruction period of lynchings and stealing of black land, or the jim crow era of lynchings and cheating of sharecroppers, or the housing scams sanction by HUD no you say, nothing can be done.

But I say again in case it didn't sink in the first reading TRILLIONS (that's with a "T" not a "B" go to white bankers who fucked up and brought the economy to it's knees through their greed, but nothing to at least acknowledge and make partial amends for hundreds of years of racism?

You're okay with that? Reparations for any other group of people but HELL NO to black people?

TRILLIONS to bankers didn't break us, got that?
