Hey I have one..
If white people enslaved black people for 500 years and paid them nothing for their contribution to the country, how much does America owe Black Americans today?
If white people murdered, raped, assulted, starved, and abused black people for 200 years how many years of imprisionment would they face? How many hours of therapy do they owe to the black community? How much money in damages?
If the industrial revolution was made possible by through the capital gained by slavery, how much money did white people steal from blacks?
