Jaded_Idealist: First of all, there are no such thing as UN "experts". Secondly, the UN can go PHCUK themselves! They need to keep their noses out of our business. They are such hypocrites for even bringing this up. Practically every nation in the UN had slaves at one point or another yet they act like the USA invented slavery. Has the UN ever said that Britian or France or Italy or any other nation should pay reparations to a race because of something that happened over a century (or two) before they were ever born??? The only thing that makes the US different is that this is the only country on the planet where tens of thousands of White men DIED to free slaves. You want reparations??? They were paid in full on the battlefield in BLOOD. Either get over it or move on back to Africa and see how long you last before one of your "brothers" hacks you up with a machete or riddles you with bullets from an AK-47. And let's not forget who sold the Africans into slavery in the first place. In the vast majority of cases it was OTHER AFRICANS. So if you want reparations, pay yourselves because quite frankly the only people keeping you down now are yourselves and the victim mentality you cling to for dear life because without it you don't have any more excuses.
