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?
To which SloanT replied
I would fully support repaying slave labourers back, but only to the person enslaved
So let's say that a former Holocaust slave labourer dies prior to receiving his reparation payment. So nothing would paid to his estate? And if so, what would be the dis-incentive for the unscrupulous to just tie up payments in litigation until after the effected ones die?
