Rep. John Conyers has been introducing a Reparations Bill in the House for decades

[Reparations Moving Forward]

There is a lot of hatred against African Americans in the United States even though as a group, we have done little or nothing to earn it. Most of us were brought here against our will. This has been an odd way to act toward people you forced to be part of your population. An example of this hatred is easy to see in the irrational reaction of many toward the twice legally elected President of the United States, Barack Obama.

In my humble opinion, from a distance, he has been an almost perfect person, having a beautiful family, being extremely competent at his job and never striking back at his many tormentors, many of whom have conducted themselves at the level of sub-humans in their vitriolic comments about him, often to his face. He has taken this abuse in much the same way that Jackie Robinson, the first African American to make it in the then all white professional baseball league took it.

No American president has ever faced so much hostility and outright disrespect. The haters may be a minority, but there are still a lot of them, and as we have seen, they have power and they have little morality meaning they will sink to any level, no matter how low to achieve their objectives.

The damage done to Africans after their civilizations collapsed has been the worst ever inflicted on any peoples of the world. Their greatest accomplishments, the Egyptian Civilization for one example has been ripped from them by criminal societies who have tried for centuries to convince the world that Egypt was a European creation when in fact they came into possession of it only through invasions and criminal acts.

They have tried through various religions to convince the world that the Egyptians deserved to be enslaved claiming that enslaved Europeans, the Jews, were forced to build the Great Pyramids on the Giza Plateau. This has been proven to be a lie, but there are hundreds or even thousands of lies that these people live on as justification for murdering and enslaving millions of Africans then stealing and pillaging their rich lands. Africans are not alone in suffering these fates. The same has been done to others, including the American Indians. In the case of Africans brought to the Americas, we were stripped of not only our history but our language, our customs, our religions and even our appearance in an attempt to make us unrecognizable to the world. All of this damage must be made right.

Reparation is a principle of law that has existed for centuries, referring to the obligation of a wrongdoing party to redress the damage caused to the injured party. Under international law, reparation must, as far as possible, wipe out all the consequences of the illegal acts and re-establish the situation which would, in all probability, have existed if these acts had not been committed.

The Reparations situation between The Jews and Nazi Germany was fairly simple and a “Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany” was held by the Israelis. 
Around September 1951, the Chancellor of West Germany addressed his Parliament stating the need and desire of his government to agree on forms of compensation due the Jewish people. Despite some protests, an agreement was signed in September 1952 and West Germany paid Israel a total sum of $2,374,284,914 dollars (over Two billion three hundred million dollars). The payment was made to the State of Israel as heir to the victims who had no surviving family.

The money was invested in the country’s infrastructure and was an important part of establishing the economy of the new state. It could be said that it was their life’s blood.

In the situation where America deprived Japanese Americans of their businesses, material goods and also imprisoned them during WWII, even though some of them had sons serving active duty in the U.S. Military, the situation was still fairly simple. In response, the Japanese people began what turned out to be a successful reparations movement in the 1980’s. Their situation is still ongoing.

One source claims, however, that nearly 20 years ago, the U.S. Congress did apologize for the treatment of Japanese Americans who were imprisoned in internment camps during WWII and it was said that each person was paid $20,000.00. The U.S. disbursed more than $1.6 billion to interned Japanese Americans and their heirs.

In the current political environment, African Americans will have little chance of winning any kind of Reparation from the United States or any of the other countries involved in our tragedy. The U.S. Supreme Court is far too right wing, and the Republican minority still has enough power that all they want to do is punish African Americans, even though as I stated above, we have done little or nothing to deserve it.

One real solution is the one put forth by Malcolm X: We must take our case before The United Nations. The slave trade was worldwide. Estimates of the damages can vary widely, but one said that for nearly 350 years from the start of the 16th century, it is estimated that tens of millions of Africans were forcibly removed from their continent and sold around the world. 
So I think the only chance for justice would come through a world court as found in The United Nations here in New York.

The League of Nations preceded the current body. The League had few teeth; they could chew on things but had little power to force change. The United Nations has teeth. It can use force to implement its decisions and this will definitely be needed when they do get around to settling claims in our favor. One argument against Reparations is that only a small percentage of Americans profited from the slave trade and many Whites (and Blacks also) died to end slavery and it is unfair that the entire country be taxed. Of course, this makes no sense to me at all.

The countries that were involved and that profited from the trade, worldwide, must pay and be made to pay if they refuse to do the right thing. America must support it and kick in its fair share. It may be that this will only happen when African countries and African peoples world-wide become strong enough to carry this out.

As in most legal proceedings, Proof of Damage will be required by the Courts: The entire world knows what has happened to Africans planet-wide and who has caused the damages and reaped the profits. I doubt our claims can be denied but I’m sure many will try, just as some, in spite of all the evidence, have tried to deny the Jewish Holocaust. Many claims by African nations have been made already, including some made at the U.N., all without success.

At this point, the offending nations are still too powerful, made so from drinking the blood of so many Africans. 
Once the Reparations arguments start to be settled, there will be a phase where the type and means of Reparations has to be determined. Reparations to individuals will not be practical. I’m certain that would lead to a clown show.

DNA Evidence will be used by some white people, in this country and South Africa and around the world where suddenly they will be trying to prove they are Black or African, even including those who have fought against Africans all their lives, perhaps as Clan members or as South African police.

By using new and cheaper products now available to do DNA testing, people of many races will trumpet any results showing they or their families have a smattering of African blood in them and they will now say that this qualifies them for a share in Reparations settlements which they are now claiming. Some estimates of what Africans are due for giving Europeans grand lifestyles while many Africans starve even today, is approximately $8,000,000,000,000 (Eight Trillion dollars).

I guarantee you that there will be a dog and pony show as good people and bad lunge at this purse.

Some method that can be used worldwide must be found. Some institution or entity must be created, perhaps by the U.N. and put in place to ensure the funds collected go to lift Africans all over the world out of their situations of prosecution so that any who cannot protect themselves are protected.

We have seen recent events in America where peoples gains once thought secure have been rolled back. We have seen that evil will never rest so we must be certain,“by whatever means necessary”, that African people worldwide can never, ever be victimized again.

Never gonna happen.

Take your welfare, the destruction of the nation's educational system to accommodate your brainless spawn and your handicapped license plates so your 500 lb sow don't have to walk so far to buy a bucket of Popeyes. Those are your reparations.

Caucasians DID create Egypt. They're native to north Africa middle east and Europe. Science and history proves it. Just because you stupid lazy parasitic black savages don't have a culture or never created any advanced civilization doesn't give you the right to steal and lie about history. I'm proud to be Caucasian because we built the pyramids. Blacks are still living in mud huts like the sub human savages they are.

You neanderthals did not create nothing in the motherland but death and destruction. You are right now in lands that are not yours and were not yours. You were banished to europa and cold and ice to be your prison. You have broke out and marauded over the earth. You owe everybody, including the animals reparations. lol

Your hand downs is not payment of the crime and for the crime. It is simply a means to sooth dumb and blind negroes of the pain you devils have caused.

You have spread nothing but homosexuality,death and disease to the earth. You have poisoned it by land,air and water. When the creator asks for its payment back, believe me it will not take long at all for it to be retrieved.:)

"Its Time For Reparations To Be Paid"

I agree.

The British have been waiting like forever reparations for their transportation costs and southern plantation owners exhibit the patience of saints waiting reparations for their cost of room and board!

Agree about the reparations for black Americans. Disagree somewhat about the case of Japanese Americans which you incorrectly termed as "ongoing." The Japanese were award reparations. 1988 former president Reagan signed it into law and on Sept.27, 1992 former president George H.W Bush signed an extension of the bill appropriating more money for Japanese who were interned. Most survivors got 20,000 each an apology and and educational foundation set up for children of Japanese American families including those who returned to Japan. It came to a total cost of 2.6 billion. Reparations can be paid in many forms in free college education, property, land, foundations, business grants and many other forms.
However, I firmly disagree about Obama being the most disrespected president in office. That would still go to former president Bush. Many blacks and democrats were guilty of starting the trend of demeaning the office of the president. The op is guilty of selective memory. When people are openly celebrated in the media for throwing shoes at Obama & cursing him out, blaming him for hurricanes and other acts of nature like mudslides than it might be equal. Also when Obama gives a speech at white colleges he isn't booed, spat at or subjected to the entire white student body turning their backs to him in hostile gestures of disrespect. He isn't the butt of jokes by comedians. He's not a target of the media despite adhering to outlandish unpopular policies like gay marriage. Nor is the media giving a daily body count of coffins and soldiers killed in military conflicts that Obama has extended not ended. The stories depicting the suffering of poor people driven into homelessness hasn't even been touched in the media. Obama isn't nearly getting the media pummeling that Bush was met with. Don't complain about the rudeness, crudeness & disrespect given to the office of the president when black Americans lead the way when republican presidents held office. Its tit for tat the right is no long respecting the office held by a democrat. If Obama were white it still wouldn't matter.

Reparations for blacks? Well let's see...

The systematic destruction of the nations that enslaved you.
http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/matthew-vadu...

Check.

The pillaging and looting of the people that arrogantly ruled over, mocked, tortured, and degraded you.
http://www.mybudget360.com/pillaging-the-aver...

Check.

The sterilizing and rebuilding of the land given to your forefathers to make ready for your eventual return.

If Obama were a white democrat it would be the same the nation is politically divided. Blacks lead the way in rudeness and disrespect of the office of the president. As seen when the Bushes occupied the office. The republican party reached out to black only to be scoffed & jeered. If you want the office respected you have to show respect to others who hold it---regardless of party affiliation. The office of the president was disrespected long before president Obama took office. Just keeping it real. What good is a half black president who won't do anything for the very black people who helped get him elected? There will never be reparations for black people. Blacks have slept their opportunity refusing to ask president Obama. Are Black people waiting til Obama leaves office? Then they will attack the next president as racist for not giving them reparations. This is insanity. Don't expect a white or Hispanic president to give you reparations when you ask nothing from a president who shares part of your black racial heritage. Hispanics have supplanted blacks as the top minority group meaning the piece of the pie going to black just got drastically smaller. By 2043 whites will no longer be the majority and the Asian & Latino groups that overtake them will become a majority. These groups are not going to grant blacks reparations since they played no part in slavery, Jim Crow segregation, black terrorism & anti-black policies. Black people can't come together to form businesses & families just counts black Americans extinct. My people perish for lack of knowledge and lack of love & lack of group cohesiveness. The future American century will not be a white one but it won't be a black at all. Whites will still hold most of the wealth since its now concentrating into a few white hands. So that when they become minorities the white wealthy elite will still have power. Those whites who own nothing and some blue collar or those only with a high school education or less will comprise a new underclass. Educated whites will still find employment with white controlled corporations. Some of the white elite will have to deal with the Asian & Latino majorities. Better wake up, smell the coffee and read the handwriting on the wall. Black Americans are about to become locked into a permanent underclass. And you're right everybody hates us black Americans----including Caribbean & African blacks.

Of course we did and science proves it. You erectus
Didn't create anything but problems. 89% of humanity has Neanderthal DNA, you blacks are the only race with homo erectus DNA. Lol you're a global minority. And Caucasians are native to north and east africa, middle east and Europe.

Science and history is on our side. This is a Neanderthal planet not erectus.

lol....Science ....IS....Fiction....therefore you and your race are Science Fiction, an imaginative mistake of HUEmanity.

Only thing your Science has proven is what HUEmans have seen for the past 1000 years, which is that your in breeding with neanderthals,dogs and other sorts of animals in nature which you still do today, makes up your animalistic nature. You know your current and past breeding behavior with animals caused your inheritance for disease, of which you've spread. This was a clean and peaceful earth before your arrival boy, you are a beast, a violent and nasty one, which needs to be put down.

And so if this is a neanderthal planet, then you are an animal. The animals are only part of the planet,in the wild, made to be herded up and disciplined...You are the only animal that has not been herded and disciplined. Part one of your discipline will be repayment for your crimes,in the form of the wealth you stole and the BLOOD.........:

Go figure an animal stating essentially this is an animal planet.....lololol.....You belong here boy:
