    No, they should not get anything. Why? and neither should native americans. I am Mexican and i dont get anything. They took our land, killed my aztec warriors, and raped our women. The only things i get are racism, insults, and discrimination on a daily basis. Thanks Guys 👍

    I never owned a slave, and they never picked cotton.  No.

    I'm black and my answer is no. Roberr Ringer wrote a good article on this topic, I will leave a link in the source area. Oprah and Lebron can give us some of their money if they want to, but they won't do that of course.

    Yes, all those held in slavery should be compensated, NOT their freed subsequent generations?  So to answer, NOT ONE CENT.

    Their freedom was bought and paid for with white blood.. We owe them nothing

    If all the wrongs of history were to be put right, compensating for the evils perpetrated against Black people in America would require significant compensation.

    It is difficult to see, however, how that could be implemented --- no one alive today owned slaves, and no one alive today has been a slave.  There are many non-Black citizens of the USA who had nothing to do with slavery, and there are many "white" citizens whose ancestors opposed slavery, perhaps even at the cost of their own lives.  So who is to pay, and who is to receive compensation.  Is the white half of Barack Obama to compensate his black half (who at any rate, were in Africa during the Civil War)?

    But Black people in America are certainly owed an end to racism in their interactions with the Law and with American Capitalism.  They are also owed "affirmative action".

    If you are talking about slavery as pertains to the U.S.A, then no. There is not one black person alive that has been subject to being owned by a white plantation owner since the Civil War

    Why should those alive today be had responsible for something that happened many years before they were born this victim culture is nauseating quite frankly.
