No problem, Kendra... thanks for contributing!

I mean, I think that what had been disussed earlier is the assimilation and consumer relationship that most African-Americans have been drawn into, unconsciously in most cases. (At least that's what I believe, because many African-American communites are not educated about feedback relationships with companies and consumers and the like.) Sodas, chips, expensive clothing, expensive shoes (i.e. Nike and others), cell phones, car rims, rap and the rappers that form close-knit relationships with businesses aimed at young cosumers (such as Sprite), etc. Even if we do receive reparations, what are we going to do with the money? I mean, I figure it'll end up going straight back to the giver if we don't utilize it with a clear and brillant vision in mind. There are a lot of things that can be done... so many things if we had reparations. Hmm... I don't even know how much money would be received...


Who was the comedian who said that if we got reparations then the very next day white folk would be a lot richer?

I think Dave Chappelle did a reparations skit and that's what happened.
