People forget freed slaves were offered land and the chance to return to Africa. They founded Liberia a country that quickly and ironically became a hotbed of slavery, before plunging into decades of famine and war. The Failed state of Liberia was the reparation.

.African Countries bares the responsibility for reparation in the form of a an independent sovereign territory the size of Puerto Rico or Hispaniola in Africa for Africans (Arab & Sub Saharan) stealing the territorial lands from those they sold to the middle East, N. Africa, India, Brazil, Caribbean, & the USA. Liberia (reparation for freed slave to determine their own destiny, make their own laws, trade, & management the land) & Haiti failed, but with the talented tenth in charge the New Land Sovereign territory can & will Rival Israel, Malta, Brunei. They can do it, but it will take all of Sub Saharan descent in the Americas sacrifice & hard work to make the Economy & Sovereign to work. They can call it Wakanda, & with China's help it can look like Wakanda. If the Confederate states had won secession & the slaves victoriously rebelled, then the Confederate states would be obliged to give up power, territorial control, property & women to ravage like in Haiti's revolution. Did Ancient Greece, Rome, Mesopotamia, Egyptian slaves ever get their reparation how about Spain? Spain's subjects were enslave 700-800 years by the Abbasid & Cordova Caliphate.
Majority of Sub Saharans descent agrees with Prof. Dyson's demand for reparation as it'll give consent for Sub Saharans to have power & control over Non-Sub Saharan people even bully. Prop. Dyson's claims that all people of European lineage inherited the legacy of Slavery. Despite Dyson's claims, what people of Europeans lineage inherited were the Magna Carta, Constitutional Law, Bill of Rights that started with the U.S. Constitutions for which Some Non European/Europeanized Sovereigns had adopted for them selves & led to the Abolition of Slavery. The Global Abolition of Slavery Started with European descent from the Late 1700s to the late 1800s. In the US it was the Quakers along with the Anabaptist that started the abolition movement that was achieved in 1864. Brazil, Cuba, & Others followed in 1890s. The Union states having won the war against the rebel states abolished slavery. Since the founding of the U.S.A half of the U.S. had been anti-slavery, but had to work with the slave state for independence, strength & protection from possible foreign threats abroad or across land borders. When the confederate secede all bets were off. Independence is the ultimate reparation as independence enables one or a sovereign determine & control its own destiny instead of homestead or land grants. Independence gives full control & use of the Sovereign's territory. Abolishing slavery & Liberia were reparation. All the entitlements that came after such as public schooling, welfare, section 8, & Affirmative Action... are additional reparation.
The people most likely will be taxed are Immigrants who arrived in the U.S. after abolition of Slavery. China, Japan, Indo Chinese, Eastern Europe, Oceana did not participate in the East Arabian Slave trade, however India, Sri Lanka, & possibly Bangladesh & Pakistan did. Would free Sub Saharan descent who owned plantations & an army of slaves going to receive reparation, what about mulattos. Some inherited partitions of their European descent fathers' plantation & in some cases inherited the entire plantation & slaves. What about Sub Saharan Immigrants & Refugees (likely descendant of slave traders involved in the trans-Atlantic slave trade), Sub Saharan Descent Caribbean & Sub Saharan Descent South American. There were only 3 to less than 4 million slaves (300K-400,000 family's), & less than 2% (1.5%-1.8% 525K-600K) owned slaves out of 30-35 million US population, 10%-20%+ (60K-120K+) of whom where Amerindian & Sub Saharan descent slave holders like Anthony Johnson at the time, before the abolition of slavery. US Sub Saharan descent population is currently around 40 million, not all of them descended from slaves. Sub Saharan immigrants (likely descended from slave raiders/traders) are included in the demographics as well...
It took people of European descent to Abolished Slavery & Sub Saharan's had no intention of Abolishing Slavery. Slavery has always been the legacy of human history since scientific Adam & Eve's Great Grand Children Separated themselves into clans, villages, & tribes resulting from over crowding & depletion of resource ensued competition, rivalry subjugation slavery, theft, rape, murder, raiding, & warfare. Owning slaves worldwide was as normal as owning a dog or cat. Every tribe, village, & kingdoms was founded by slavery before civilization sprang up in the fertile crescent. Asia minor, N. Africa, Arabia, & Persia were awash in slavery, & Sub Saharans were no exemption, but had very limited contact with Kingdoms within or around the fertile crescent as the Great Sahara Desert prevented easy access. Ancient Egypt never went beyond N. Sudan & Abyssinia to wage war to harvest slaves. Camels originating from Mongolia enabled small trading scouts of Muslim slave traders to penetrate the Great Deserts as they slowly establish routes to Oasis within the desert penetrating the Sahel from 1000CE-1200CE into the interior of Sub Sahara along the Coast. Timbuktu was a slave Port founded by Arabs that also served as a library to spread Islam to the Elites that the Arabs were trading with for slaves. (Academics wasn't indigenous to Sub Saharan Africa. Arabs & Europeans brought Academics to Sub Saharan Elites)
Chinese fore & aft sails, rudder, compass, gun powder & cannon (allowing them to expel the Cordova Caliphate from Spain) reached Europe through travelers & merchants such as Marco Polo, reversed engineered & improved over time enable Europeans such as the Portuguese to circumvent the Sahara desert to establish trading port with the coastal villages & hunter gathering Kingdoms on their (Portuguese) way to India.
Turkey was the first among Islamic States to Abolish Chattel/Caste Slavery for European Descent & Sub Saharan Descents in the 1880s. The Slave Culture is still alive in Islamic states throughout the middle east trough Immigrant Sponsorship with immigrants usually unpaid, abused, raped & beheaded. Slavery is pretty much hidden & Islamist like ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram wants to revived the practice openly as it was 55-60 years ago. Traditional Slavery still exist among sub Saharans. Slaves weren't just obtained through warfare & raiding campaigns which also involved rape & mutilations, but also offering ones virgin tween daughter as payment for an offense to another family or spirits for which the spiritual leader receives the pubescent girl as his slave in labor & sex. Child trafficking is huge business in the Sahel, N Africa, Nigeria, Arabian Peninsula... South Africa being a Corrupt Rape & Murder Capitol of the World for 2 decades stems from hunter gathering tribal culture deeply rooted within the tradition & society of Sub Saharans since scientific Adam/Eve in Africa.
With the arrival of Arabs (1000CE-1200CE) in the interior of Sub Sahara & before the Portuguese (late 1400s) sailed around Africa to set up slave trading ports with costal bush kingdoms, tribal warfare controlled population through sacrificial ceremonies that may involved having to consume sacrificial offerings, a practice that still exist.
Joshua Milton Blayhi (Gen. Butt Naked) being notorious for conducting these sacrificial ceremonies as its High Priest in Liberia (VICE: Cannibal Warlords). In Tanzania Albino's, mostly children, are killed for their body parts as charms, souvenirs, & even consumed in the same manner that Gorilla hands and feet are sold as charms or souvenirs, the rest being consumed in the beliefs of gaining some powers like Black Panther's heart of herb.
After abolition of slavery swept Europe (serfs), N. Americas, then central & S. America 30-40 years later, Sub Saharan Bush Kingdoms, later republics, still had a reliable slave trading partner with Arab & Arabize nations for another 100-140 years (Saudi Arabia (1964), UAE (64), Zanzibar (64), Mauritania 2007).
Importation of slaves from Africa to the Americas was a huge mistake. Europe had millions of extremely impoverished Europeans (former serfs) from the 14th Century up to WWII. Now Europeans descent of N. America are feeling the mental anguish & annoyance of that catastrophic mistake. Islamist, however, aren't convince that slavery was a mistake. Groups like Al Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Shabaab wants to bring back slavery in it's former glory out practiced openly like how it was then in the grand slave market of Egypt.
Sub Saharan descent leadership seems to be heavily reliant on victimhood tantrum/shakedowns, rather than accepting accountability & being self reliant instead using victimhood to provide cover for failures or corrupt behaviors. Currently criticizing failures of decades long leadership in deteriorating blue state cities is being labeled as racist by activist, advocates & officials asking for more money despite billions wasted over decades blaming slavery & racism. Slavery was abolished 150+ years ago by European descent having won the civil war, & the Civil Rights Act passed 55 years ago. Sub Saharan descent mentality seems to be trapped in perpetual slavery keeping them from accepting accountability, become self reliant, & taking responsibility always pushing & begging European descents to accept them leading to cities' deterioration as Authority, Law & Order, & invested interest in a stable safe community brakes down.Source(s): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XasTcDsDfMg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoQAxQgevEA Description of Sub Saharans Islamic writings http://www.raceandhistory.com/cgi-bin/forum/webbbs...

We should repeal the 14th amendment for a period of time. Anyone who feels they deserve reparations can become a slave during the temporary repeal. Once the repeal is over, we can pay reparations to all the living former slaves.

There are no present day slaves, so reparations are just something some nitwits think they deserve. I say, get a damn job and quit looking for something for nothing.

It would be hard as nobody currently alive in the US has been a slave nor a slave owner.

We would send the money to the North Pole and let Santa jump on his sleigh and deliver it to God, who will bless these people with money in heaven. Makes sense, right?

My guess would be through dna.
Slave owners kept impeccable records for the slave they own. After slavery was abolished, I believe each slave owner got compensated for each slave released.
The descendants of Japanese Americans received reparations through Reagan.
The Native American tribes got reparations in the form of land and casino rights.

It is not reparation.
They want wealth redistribution to equalize wealth.
