The Case Against Reparations for African Americans

The other day, I was speaking to a very dear friend of mine about race issues in America. (My friend happens to be white.) She asked me what percentage of black people would likely hold her personally responsible  for slavery? I told her that I could not quantify a percentage but likely,  many African Americans would hold her responsible for the sins of her ancestors. For the record, I vehemently disagree with that opinion.  Why?   Over the years,  I’ve heard several arguments made for reparations on numerous occasions but none have satisfied me. Why? For me, it always comes down to this - who should pay? It is this question that my case against reparations for African Americans rest. Tune in for the details.
