I’m on board.

Give every ex slave that is still alive a billion dollars each.

The U.S. government is not the culprit and bears no liability in this case.

Does anyone think actual reparations will be paid?

It would be tied up in counter-lawsuits and appeals for months.

Where would the money come from?

This is nothing but an issue designed to sow division and hatred among black Americans.
