history japanese americans

are there any suggestions for this question

Why would America pay reparations to victims and family members of Japanese Americans who were placed in internment camps, Jewish survivors and family members of Nazi death camps and even those who we went to war with (see military reparations), yet be adamant about not paying reparations to the descendants of enslaved Africans?

  1. The easy answer is that the logistics of paying reparations to over 44 million people whose ancestors were enslaved 150 years ago is mind-boggling. In addition, the governments did not enslave them -- so would not owe the descendants any money.

  2. or would not paying them reparation reinforce slavery

  3. I doubt it. Slavery has been outlawed in most countries for at least 150 years.
