But seriously, look at Africa today. How many African Americans are wishing their ancestors were never taken from Africa? How many African Americans are wishing they lived in Africa right about now? Maybe you really do wish that and if so then history owes you, but I really don't understand why talks of reparations keep coming up. I'm seriously asking this because the way I look at it, while the end certainly didn't justify the means, there's really not much to complain about when the bigger picture is displayed. Maybe I'm completely off base here. Like I said, this is not meant to be racist at all but really if it weren't for the slavery we have in our history chances are most African American people today wouldn't even exist. Is this a fair statement to make?
