Hi @RodDMartin ,

I noticed that you retweeted this.

Iโ€™m no expert on reparations or slavery. But I do have expertise in ethics and political philosophy. And, if I may, I think this comment actually brings more confusion than clarity to the issue. Hereโ€™s a much better argument.
(Quick preliminary. Iโ€™m not going to say anything about who owes what to whom, how much, or the process of effectuating compensation. I just want you to acknowledge that itโ€™s at least possible that some people in the present day are owed compensation for some past injustices.
Oh yeah, and my argument has nothing to do with slavery. So your answer shouldnโ€™t have anything to do with slavery or details Re who owes what to whom, how much, etc. My only point is that itโ€™s at least possible that some people today are owed compensation for past injustice.)
