Interesting concepts Souljah!
BUT why does this discussion force reparations to end racism/prejudice? I had previously thought reparations were intended to end economic disparity and enable blacks to build/achieve wealth withheld from them due to the effects of slavery.
I agree with Melesi that reparations will not end racism, but if Black Americans have the economic foundation to build businesses, successful communities, jobs etc, racism's effect can be ameliorated.
Reparations should aim to end black poverty not changing white belief systems.
Show blacks the $$$ and we can build an economic system to insulate our progeny from the effects of racism.
