“All Blacks should get it because we all suffer from slavery. Some people don’t want to talk about it and what happened, but it happened. If we don’t get it now, we never will and that would be a shame.”
“Only African Americans should get reparations. If it’s going to come from American taxes and it’s for slavery in America, then it should only go to African Americans.”
“It should be decided based on how old you are. Young people should get less because they haven’t been affected as much and more is open to them. Older folks should definitely get a check.”
“What’s 40 acres and a mule worth today? That’s what we were promised and every Black person should be able to receive it. Personally, I think it should be in housing or education.”
