Recently an United Nations panel concluded that the United States needs to form a national human rights commission and pubicly announce that slavery was a crime against humanity. After they announce that the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, slavery, and segregation was a crime against humanity then the United States needs to maje the correct measures to give reparations.
This is a necessary step made by the United Nations has made, but this is not the first time the U.N. has called the United States out. Reparations are very very long over due. The fact is every group has recieved reparations that has deserved them. No other gropus tragedy has lasted this long. The Holocaust didn’t even last a decade. Slavery occurred for over 300 years, Jim Crow lasted for almost a century, and mass incarciration for decades. Reparations for black people in America would be in trillions, and rightfully so, no group in the documented history had endured what black people in America have endured. The federal government for over the last 400 years has allowed the wrongful treatment of black people so they should compensate for their actions. Reparations are long over due, and very necessary.
