US owes blacks reparations over slavery: UN experts
But since the US only took a tiny fraction of the black slaves, there are a large number of nations which will also be required to pay reparations. Most of these will be in the Caribbean, and South America, but not all. Thus, we will need a uniform, reasonable reparations amount for all.
The Africans were engaged in slave capture, slavery, and slave selling long before the Europeans, and North, and South Americas became involved, so they will also need to pay reparations. These slave trades went far beyond the Americas, and Europe, and into the Middle East and beyond, so all of those peoples will need to also pay reparations.
If we only go back a bit further, nearly every nation used slaves, traded in salves, or captured slaves. So, all of the potential peoples involved will need to pay reparations. That is probably all the people in the world.
Since we cannot determine whether the families, or ancestors of slaves were involved in the slave trade, we cannot be sure the slaves also are not required to pay reparations. Nor can we tell if people without an obvious link to a familial history as slaves were or were not slaves. So, we must make reparation payments to them as well.
There, I fixed it, we all owe each other reparations for slavery. If this is true, why bother, it is simply an economic futility.
So, everyone owes everyone else, and no one need pay. We all cancel the debts owed to us, in exchange for the debts we owe.
That was easy.
