One response to “UN Panel Endorses US Slave Reparations

  1. “Contemporary police killings and the trauma it creates are reminiscent of the racial terror lynching’s in the past,” Mendes-France told reporters.
    She probably did not go into the subject of the economic well-being of today’s decidedly not-slave American black population – whioch, what wiith the first black billionaire coming on stream a few years ago, has come a long way since the bad old days. What those police shootings show, besides some bias, is that the American black people’s big problem today is (especially young male) employment – in something other than the illegal drug trade, into which, very likely, many feel “forced” because they can’t get jobs.

    Mendes-France does not favour cash “reparations”; “Instead, she recommended that the money be spent for the “full implementation of special programs based on education, socioeconomic, and environmental rights.”” I’ doubt that will do a lot of good for the half or so of young black males who are unemployed (in legitimate employments, that is.)
