Reparations

Reparations

  • Reparations - monetary compensation. Af-Ams have called on the U.S. gov’t to provide this as retribution for slavery, years of unequal education, and failure to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS.

  • Began in 1969 by James Foreman’s “Black Manifesto” – called for millions of $$ to Af-Ams for being exploited and killed.

  • Argues Af-Ams still bear the scars of slavery in housing, health, & education.


Are reparations possible

Are Reparations possible?

  • Some Japanese families earned reparations in the 1980s for WWII internment. Some Jews were given $$ by the German gov’t for the Holocaust.

  • None have been given to blacks, but some politicians continue to research possibilities. Others say it is an unrealistic campaign.

  • A black journalist, William Raspberry states: “The suffering of long-dead ancestors is not a claim check for a bag full of cash. I don’t want any money that belongs to any slave.”


Hiv aids an epidemic

HIV/AIDS – An Epidemic

  • The leading cause of death for Afr-Amers between 25 and 45 in the U.S.

  • 1 in 50 black men and 1 in 160 black women are estimated to be HIV infected. Many do not know they have the virus.

  • 63% of American women with AIDS are black.
