My mother’s family were Irish (Mulvaney), my father’s side Native American. If anyone should have reparation it would be Native Americans. When can I expect MY check!
Why is it some people in our country always believe the innocent should pay for the sins and crimes of the guilty? You had nothing to do with it centuries ago? Doesn’t matter……… we can probably link you to someone who did own a slave whether they can be located on your ancestral tree or not. And…..are you sure your blood line didn’t actually belong to one of the African tribes doing the capture and selling of blacks into slavery? They could have still found their way here……came and stayed.
Freedom wasn’t enough? I wish we could go back and ask those freed after the Civil War that question.
“Let us pay” should be “Let us pray”. I think we all would be far better off.
