Question: Reparations for Slavery’s Descendants?

Issue: AP: Reparations gain momentum: Wire service claims it's gone from fringe-group to mainstream movement/Associated Press

DFO: We've debated this one somewhat in the HBO comments section, with Unbearable Bob supporting reparations and Dave Tolle and other conservatives opposing them. I come down on the side of Dave here. The tens of thousands of Union soldiers who died to rid this country of the awful scourge of slavery was a major reparation. Anything more will divide us further as a people today.

Question: Do you support reparations for African-Americans whose ancestors were caught in slavery?
