rellymo,
Thanks for replying and adding to the discussion. I must disagree with you on a few points though. First, not all current day African Americans are decendents of slaves. We have new comers from Africa (image that!), and from the carribean. Surely, they are not entitled to any reparations?

Lastly,
I disagree with your characterization of African-Americans being victims. It's this whole victim thing which I believe really keeps all of us down. If we expended as much energy toward moving forward as has been spent on looking back, we'd arrived to the promise land by now.

I choose to move forward. Those who do not will stay behind.
