Reparations For Slavery?

A handful of members of Congress, led by Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.), have introduced and are pressing for a vote on a bill that would pay reparations to black Americans for slavery.

That raises the question:  should we also require reparations from Japanese-Americans for Pearl Harbor? No?  Then you see how ridiculous that whole topic is.

On a broader scale, the very thought is so ridiculous that imposing mass punishment on a population for a crime or crimes committed by certain people is specifically prohibited by the Geneva Convention. Even agreed upon international law thinks the question is so obvious that it is outlawed across the globe.
