Reparations could be Done

All the arguments against reparations that I’ve heard all try to make the point that there is no way to fairly and rationally provide recompense to the ancestors of slaves to repay them for the labor and lives of their ancestors.

They always say how senseless it is to expect white people living today who never owned slaves to co-sign any financial benefit to black people living today who were never in slavery.
