They have also formed the basis for the accumulation of immense wealth in the hands of a small elite… The slave trade involved the brutal relocation of tens of millions of people in which families, communities and societies were destroyed and in which millions lost their lives in the most inhumane conditions. At the same time, slavery was a fundamental element of the strengthening. Many slaves often died from disease, malnutrition, or suicide, in effort to avoid their future enslavement. After hundreds of years of slavery, Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation making slavery illegal. In response to the quote, "I support reparations for slavery in the United States" I strongly oppose this statement.
Overall the whole controversy on reparations is extremely open to question. Many people have different views on who should get what? How much money should African Americans receive? So on and so forth.
Slavery is a dark spot in the United States' history and it still is the cause of many bitter confrontations in the society. Even after more then hundred years after its abolishment, the legacy of slavery is still felt until this day. African Americans today, as a group, have less education, lower levels of income, and poorer quality of life in general than their Caucasian counterparts. What is the reason for this discrepancy? Is it because African Americans are less hard-working and less willing to adapt to the new economic realities than the white suburbia, as many Caucasians may believe?
Two hundred fifty years of slavery. Ninety years of Jim Crow. Sixty years of separate but equal.
