    How could anyone determine the true identity of all such slaves and even more, the identity of their descendants?

    I think the word ' reparations ' is an incorrect term. Reparations are paid to the victim by the perpetrator by order of a judge. There are no living ex-slaves and no living slave owners. What people are looking for would be compensation.

      BTW Freed black people owned slaves as well as native Americans, compound that confusion with the fact that many African Americans descendants of slave owners but most white Americans are not. So called reparations are impossible.

    Just some ignorant people looking for something for nothing.

    Anyone holding slaves since 1864 should pay reparations to anyone they held as a slave after 1864. Other than that, as others have stated, why should I pay for something neither me nor any of my ancestors participated in? That makes as much sense as making taxpayers pay welfare to the parasites who aren't smart enough to prevent a pregnancy.

    Waste of money and time. I will not pay a cent for something I had no part in.

    I have an ancestor who fought for the Union to free the slaves.

    Why should I pay anything.

    I am in favor of paying a generous sum to any African American who will renounce US citizenship and 'return' to west Africa permanently, and promise never to return to the USA. And we could also pay for a one way plane ticket to west Africa. That would be a fair exchange. And we could include a deep apology for bringing their ancestors to the USA in the first place. Let's correct the injustice 100%, all the way, back to Africa, that is.
