This weekend I read an article about making reparations to African Americans for the injustices of slavery. I have a few problems with this. Other than the obvious point that many Americans had nothing to do with this (my ancestors came over around the turn of the century), I have problems with how they want the money. Some want each and every African American to get a check, others want a trust fund set up. I say if one dollar goes towards such a settlement I’ll be moving. Since when does the US government not have soviernty?
