Slavery reparations could carry a $17 trillion price tag

A new bill would calculate potential costs of reparations — and by Yahoo Finance estimates, these could reach as high as $17.1 trillion.

Slavery reparations could carry a $17 trillion price tag

A new bill would calculate potential costs of reparations — and by Yahoo Finance estimates, these could reach as high as $17.1 trillion.

Last week, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held the first hearing in a decade on H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. The bill was first introduced in 1989 by former Congressman John Conyers (D-MI). Conyers reintroduced the bill each year until his retirement in 2017 — and each year, the bill languished in Congress.

Pay them at the going wage rate for slave times, then deduct all the money spent on welfare for the last 50 years, then they will owe us money!!

Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period, and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematical plan of reducing us to slavery.

Re: Slavery reparations could carry a $17 trillion price tag
I want reparations for my ancestors that died in the civil war freeing the slaves. The blacks already have had their reparations, they have the privilege of living in the USA where they have the opportunity to make something of their lives, instead of living in a shithole African country. They should be grateful for this opportunity.
 Quoting: Emerald_Empress


Hate to break it to you
NO northern young men would ever put their lives on the line to fight to the death to free slaves(migrant workers) from "Southern Plantation Owners". They were disconnected and could care less
NO Southern young men put their life on the line to PROTECT the rights of "Southern Plantation Owners" to have slaves. They were also disconnected and could care less about the less then 1% of the country's population rich enough to have slave (migrant workers)

Re: Slavery reparations could carry a $17 trillion price tag
Has anybody calculated the cost of 40 acres and a mule for every male slave at the end of the Civil War?

Oh wait... I just did that.

Avg cost for 1 acre in 1865 = $17 x 40 = $680

Adjusted for inflation = $10,700

Avg cost for a mule in 2019 = $3,000

Number of slaves in 1865 = 4,000,000 (assume 1/2 are male)

Total = 2,000,000 x ($10,700 + 3,000) = $27.4 TRILLION

in other words... t'ain't gonna happen.

Re: Slavery reparations could carry a $17 trillion price tag
I know a black guy who still owns the land in Georgia that his black slave ancestors were given as reparations back in the 1870’s.

Certainly his family was not the only one who received reparations back when it was appropriate to do so.

Re: Slavery reparations could carry a $17 trillion price tag
I'm fine with reparations.

Anyone who was a slave should step forward and be given their due.

If you weren't a slave personally, you have no claim.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75856653


Yes, but the slaves have a large percentage of slave-owner blood in them. Now, it might have been rape or the women trading sex for lower-work jobs, but the fact remains that almost all blacks in this country have MORE slave-owner blood in them than whites. Proportionately, few whites owned slaves, and most came here after slavery was abolished. There were also a number of free black men who WERE slave-owners.

So basically, you are saying that people whose ancestors never had anything to do with slavery should be paying descendants of slave-owners for their own ancestor's misdeeds?

How in hell will you define black?

People are so mixed up these days that almost everyone will be defined as "black", unless you require some arbitrary measure of color.

Perhaps a full body scan with a reflection spectrophotometer such that you pass or fail some arbitrary darkness coefficient? This is just getting stupid.

Just imagine another bureaucracy like the TSA to administer it.
