The reparations that are paid to Holocaust victims is based on what was lost. Not emotional loss, but the businesses, homes, etc. What will the basis be for the slaves of 150+ years ago?
I believe some of the reparations paid to Holocaust victims covered the value of their work in the German "slave-labor" camps. If there are people out there who think this compensation is unjust, they are keeping remarkably quiet about it.
If reimbursing slave labor for the victims of the Jewish Holocaust is the right thing to do, why is it wrong for the slave labor of Africans?
