Former slave-trading colonial powers should pay Barbados $4.9 trillion (£3.9 trillion) in reparations, the Caribbean country’s leftist prime minister demanded.
Speaking at the London School of Economics this week, Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley redoubled her push for slavery reparations, saying that the movement demanding payment for historical wrongs had become a more pressing issue following the resurgence of Black Lives Matter and the killing of George Floyd in the United States in 2020.

My Irish ancestors were enslaved by my Norwegian ancestors.
I need me some reparations, yeah.
I hope Africa and Muslims has that kind of money to pay them. After all, it was African warlords and muslim pirates that sold them into slavery.
She looks like Abrams in GA,right down to the gap teeth.
Go big or go home.
The entire continent of Africa has assets of only 2.4 Trillion.
Maybe this idiot will take half now and half later?
(I assume she knows Africa is responsible for the export of slaves, yes?)
That’s just the downpayment.
Barbados should be boycotted by tourists - let's see how she likes that.
And yes, she does bear a scary resemblance to Stacy Abrams:
The damage from slavery was done to her ancestors, not her.
If her ancestors had not been enslaved, she’d be living in poverty in Africa.
Yeah well, I personally don’t think the muslime world will give you a dime...but, that’s just me.
My ancestors were serfs under the King of England. Slaves in all but name only.
The Caribbeaners are getting a little uppity. I’m sure there’s something we can drop on their turd world that would make good “reparations”.
This is the result when history is distorted.
If asked, many would claim it the United States that began slavery when in reality there is no clear record of when slavery began since it existed before written history.
It was western nations (the UK and later the US) that ended slavery in most of the “civilized” world. Slavery existed in the United States for only around 80 year and we fought a great Civil War (where one cause was to end slavery). Remember, before 1776 the United States did not exist.
No reparation are due to anyone.
How many of your ancestors sold human beings into the slave trade market? Because you sure show signs of having lived a lifestyle of gluttony.
Ha ha these people are delusional.
We are flushing ungodly sums into zelenkis yacht budget, why not them?
