    The Chinese people working on the transcontinental rail were certainly whipped and if they tried to quit and find work elsewhere they were physically restrained until they agreed to work again. This is partly what led to the Chinese worker strike. They were slaves in everything but name, that and the fact that they were paid a paltry sum compared to non-Chinese workers.

    Maybe their treatment wasn't legally allowed (I would imagine not) but it doesn't change the fact that they were treated that way.

    I've heard it might start with a committee who would then hammer out the details. I'd imagine it would involve records that survived the Civil War. Proof of ancestry. Maybe starting a national database on slave ancestry. Just as a starting point. Details would need to be worked out by the committee.
    Leave it to you to believe something is a good idea with zero idea of how or if it could possibly work. Dumb, dumb dumb dumb, DUMB!

    How do you think it should be handled?

    The race to out-far-left each other for the Democrat nomination has begun!

    What's next?

    "I'm in favor of tearing down ALL of our border walls!"
    "Me too! I'm also in favor of abolishing ICE!"
    "Me too! I'm also in favor of free education for EVERYONE!"
    "Me too! I'm also in favor of free CARS for everyone!"
    "Me too! I'm also in favor of getting rid of prisons!"
    "Me too! I'm also in favor of getting rid of all police officers!"
    "Me too! I'm also in favor of white people paying a special tax on everything they buy and the money will be used to help those most hurt by white patriarchy!"
    It's the new #MeToo movement.

    Instead of casinos, they're going to give out record companies.

    Confirmed Gelston is the white Nigerian who assaulted Jussie Smollett.

    I also play as Jax on Mortal Kombat, so I want my reparations too.

    All abused and/or neglected dogs should get reparations too.
