reparations sounds good, but it's politically impossible to administer. i've had this discussion with family and we can never agree on who actually gets it. should non-American blacks get it? Should biracial AA people get it? If so, a hardline criteria needs to be established...or else you're going to have a bunch of Rachel Dolzials applying for it. should anyone married to a non-AA get it? should it be a cash handout or a tax break? is it going to be given in perpetuity or is it a one-time handout? there's a reason why even black candidates don't run on it. Because the black community is so ambiguous and diverse, it's almost impossible to come up with criteria that will please the entire community.
