Since the Government did not specifically support slavery and left it to each State to make a choice - until the Civil War- should only those States who authorized Slavery be held accountable... And further, since a large portion of the population of those States is people who have immigrated to the United States within the 100 plus plus years since slavery was officially abolished, should we only make those peoples who were officially citizens of the aforementioned states responsible for payments to people who no longer exist??? Why not make all Mothers pay reparations to Society, as a whole, for the sins of a few of their children!!- DUH... WTF
