On what planet is it okay to pay the slave owners to stop being slave owners, but to not pay enslaved Black people or their descendants for the work that they performed for said slave owners? Oh wait. This planet. The one we currently live on.
The inability of governments to provide reparations maintains the racial wealth gap. It's really deplorable.
British citizens were charged to pay off slave owners but the descendants of slaves were neglected in the policy. Horrible. Thank you for writing about this.
