The Case of Reparations

"The concept of reparations derives from the idea that African Americans should be compensated for 224 years of slavery and nearly 100 years of legalized discrimination inflicted on by them by the U.S. government and the powerful forces that have  backed it."

-- Larvester Gaither, Encyclopedia of African American History 1896 to the Present.
