Twist on Slave Reparations
Denise Smith Amos writes on the change in methods of some seeking reparations for black slaves. The change switches from getting money from the Government(s), but instead going after the corporations who may have profited from slave labor. This parallels the successful methods used by Holocaust survivors and offspring who are in negotiations on payment from European companies who profited from Slave labor before and during WWII. I agree with Denise this idea is more in the realm of the possible, but legally it is not meet the standards needed for a positive judgment.
