The prime minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is leading the effort. Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves tells The Associated Press that the 14 nations of the Caribbean Community (Caricom) organization have enlisted help from a British human rights law firm.

Gonsalves says Caricom is also creating a special commission to pursue what he calls an “honest, sober and robust conversation” with Britain, France and the Netherlands about the legacy of slavery and the genocide of native people.

Individual nations and organizations have sought reparations in the past but this is the first push by Caricom. The British High Commissioner to Jamaica said in a radio interview Wednesday that his government opposes reparations.

LOL anything like this is DOA. There's no way they could possibly pay for the amount of damage done to those former colonies. They know this so it will never happen. Especially now that the majority of those countries have pursued austerity and are unable to pay their own debts due to austerity making their debt problems worse. Britain had a triple dip recession. LOL Though, I wholeheartedly agree with any attempt to pressure these countries into paying everything owed to the damaged natives. They should have to pay out the a** for what they've done, plus interest.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
