Reparations is a hot topic nowadays. A city in the Chicago area actually paid out reparations. But here’s what I think will actually happen (not making a judgment but rather a prediction). Congress will agree to some big payout, with numerous prominent African Americans, Blacks, etc. praising it. The reparations will be paid and then another black guy will be shot by a white cop, and all hell will break out - in the opposite direction. There will be a BLM march or something, and then the real rioting will begin with mass attacks on the marchers. Republicans will rise up with “We gave you what you asked for, and yet you’re still complaining! That proves the system isn’t racist, it’s just that you actually ARE as bad as we said you were.” And as a result, the BLM movement, civil rights, etc. will be set far far back by legislation that makes the current crop of far-right legislation look timid.
Again, not my belief, but my prediction given how Republicans think. Simplistic, ignorant, Trumpy. But there it is. Thoughts?
