I agree – any living person who owned a slave should pay. The person getting paid should need to have at some point been a slave. I don’t really understand why you think what you said was funny, or ok. But I do think it’s important for someone to tell you plainly that what you said in your original comment was equal parts offensive and ignorant. I’m not saying you are an ignorant person, I don’t know you so I can’t make that judgment. But to say that no one alive today benefits or is harmed by the fact that our country treated a certain group of people like sub-human property is really quite awful.

Maybe you thought you were being funny. Maybe you just don’t realize how the ramifications of slavery CONTINUE to impact the way we operate as a country. Either way, I think this is a conversation that needs to be had in a levelheaded fashion with patience and understanding, which is not what you did. If you want respect, you have to give it. I am stereotyped all day long but when someone calls me out on my ignorant behavior I listen so I don’t make the same mistake twice. I’m just done with racism and racist sympathizers.
