Oh, I would love to see reparations go forward. You'd have to start with genetic tests, of course. Then you'd have to discuss percentages, as zero African-Americans are 100% African. If you're 60% European and 40% African, do you pay or get paid?
Then, once it's all worked out an everyone's been paid, no more bitching allowed. Sorry, we paid up. It's all fixed now.
Really, it would be worth every penny.
Honestly you could just insist they prove they're descended from slaves on more than one side of their family and laugh bc none of them know who their dads are.
