I agree. However, the issue is reparations for slaves that were "free" some 150 years ago. If there were any surviving slaves I would be completely behind reparations. That is not the case now. The reparations for the Holocaust victims will be paid in full in that subsequent generations will not receive support unless they are the minor child of a survivor who died before the child's 18 birthday or the surviving spouse. I am not making light of the Holocaust or of slavery. I am talking about reparations.
