Her family did own slaves.....

True.

Now , just imagine how many offspring there were of all those slaves, each to whom she owes millions and millions in reparations. Guilty as charged!

On the other hand, my family never owned slaves. In fact, only one distant relative was here before 1865. He arrived in 1962 and joined the NY 7th Infantry, fought to end slavery, was wounded twice but survived the war. All my other relatives arrived decades later - up to 1912.
