<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?>

Because Holocaust victims received the reparations as well as their surviving spouse. Slavery has been abolished for some time, I believe. Unless we have a world record, I can't think of any reports of one living slave who would receive reparations in the same manner as Holocaust victims. Come to think of it, the population of living Holocaust victims and their spouses are dwindling and those reparations will be paid in full upon their death.
