Uh, the "them" you refer to likely have been dead for at least four or five decades...
Hey, if you come out for a 100% inheritance tax, maybe I'll buy that line of reasoning. Everyone else in America is and was allowed to pass on the fruits of their labor to their children. Why a different standard for the children of slaves?

I've often wondered why the issue is handled one way for the descendants of Native Americans, and so much differently for the descendants of slaves. Is it because the focus has been different (the focus has been, for many years, more on equal rights and opportunities than reparations) or is it something else entirely?
