I haven't followed the current progress of reparations but I would like to add what I think should be done if reparations were actually enacted.
First of all, most of us black people wouldn't know what to do with cash money, even if by some stretch of the imagination, the government had the cold hard cash to give us. What should be done is there should be funding set aside for blacks to recieve financial aid to attend the college or university of their choice, provided they maintain the necessary GPA to remain at that college or university.
Secondly, I think that more funding should be appropriated into improving the in and around the city limits of predominately black cities in America--more affordable housing, better public transportation systems, and signing bonuses to attract new teachers in inner city school systems.
These are but a few ideas that, not only are already in progress in some cities, but also should be taken into serious consideration in other areas.
