We are increasingly hearing rhetoric in the mainstream media asserting that America’s wealth today is due to the unpaid labor of slaves picking cotton, which therefore justifies “Reparations now, reparations tomorrow, reparations forever!”
iSteve commenter commenter Barnard responds with an excellent idea for how to pay reparations:
Of all the stupid ideas taught about American history today, “America’s wealth was built on the slave labor of Black people” has to be the dumbest and most easily debunked. The percentage of American wealth that was created by agricultural based slave labor is minuscule. I fully support all reparations being paid in Confederate dollars.
