The United States should consider reparations to African-American descendants of slavery, a United Nations working group said Friday


WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States should consider reparations to African-American descendants of slavery, establish a national human rights commission and publicly acknowledge that the trans-Atlantic slave trade was a crime against humanity, a United Nations working group said Friday.

The U.N. Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent released its preliminary recommendations after more than a week of meetings with black Americans and others from around the country, including Baltimore, Chicago, New York City, the District of Columbia and Jackson, Mississippi ...

Thanks for posting!

I'm so curious though, why would they make this statement now, after president Obama has been in office for 8 years. Certainly, it is obvious that we as Black people should have Reparations on the books, but I wonder why now would they make this statement, when President Obama said, that he didn't agree with it, when he first ran for office, and there is a reason why I'm thinking about this; Hillary.

I'm wondering if these meetings now on Reparations have to do with Ms. Clinton running for president and is it to try and make her look good, or better than Obama? Just a thought.

yvw Chevron!

Good point concerning Hillary, but I think not, and here's why.

Hillary and Bernie have both made their positions against monetary distribution clear and known. Neither Hillary or Bernie, same for Mr. Obama, would attempt to push that issue through Congress.

And it need not be done that way either, so, no President is as responsible as we are to motivate the general public, to get in behind the justification of deserved reparations.

Just as the Black Lives Matter movement is multicultural, so will theReparations movement be. There are plenty of white folk that support us against Police Brutality, as there will also be toward gaining Reparations. We have to continue to make the case and put it before the people.

What you missed me saying also was this ... We the People must make this happen, not a President.

As you witnessed, by way of this article, the climate is changing rapidly towards Reparations for Black Folk.

Here's proof below to my last statement and I hope you like it. If so, say so, k?:)

Maybe more Op-Ed's will be written about this historic feat.
