Ta-Nehisi Coates’ , a national correspondent for The Atlantic, comprehensive and extensive write-up of the case for reparations for Black Americans has been the topic of much debate and conversation. Coates states “Two hundred fifty years of slavery. Ninety years of Jim Crow. Sixty years of separate but equal. Thirty-five years of racist housing policy. Until we reckon with our compounding moral debts, America will never be whole.” Do you believe Black Americans deserve reparations? If so, what should Black Americans receive? Lets discuss…

Tonight in Luqman Nation, we're going to talk about reparations for slavery. Touchy topic, but one that has arisen again with renewed fervor. We'll touch on the history of reparations paid to other groups in this country, the history of reparations for slavery specifically in this country, and some of the current attitudes on the subject.
We'll also talk about what you might have missed this week in the news, and we might even have a little bedtime story with a special guest.
We'd love to hear from you!

SPONSORED BY MARK PITTMAN--The state of the Black community is in dire need of repair. However, internal hatred by oppressor conditioning, historical events that imposed hopelessness, helplessness, division and dependency on their oppressors remain obstacles in the way of progress. Historically, billions of dollars in either land, money, or both have been granted to other ethnic groups for violations against them by the government, yet African-Americans, who suffered the most grueling, inhumane and debillitating history, (and continue to suffer these violations today), are being blocked from even being considered eligible for reparations for their suffering. What makes this uncivilized practice continue? Join me tonight at 10:30 pm as we hear from special guests Professor Carl Tone Jones, creator of the "What ABout Us?" project, and Patrick Irvine, CEO of the Think Free and Be Free Coaching, LLC company.
The argument for reparations for African Americans has been a difficult one, particularly because certain questions remain unanswered, such as "How much should each person get paid? Who would distribute the money? What criteria should a person have to meet in order to qualify?" Chicago activist Eve Angel Mama Dee Love Yhwhnewbn (Pronounced Yah Nubian) has introduced a unique approach to reparations. In the May 17,1954 Supreme Court Brown vs. Board of Education decision, the U. S. admitted that it was doubtful if children could ever overcome the psychological damage of school segregation. Such an admission opened the door to further lawsuits. What if each African American filed their own lawsuit for damages based on their own emotionally traumatic experiences in a racially biased education system? Based on legal definitions of what constitutes an act of genocide against a people, according to Mama Dee's research, most African Americans could qualify to receive damages for emotional trauma. Everything from inadequate education in childhood to living in segregated neighborhoods as adults could documented and presented as evidence. Mama Dee explains the existing laws and court rulings that can be used to lend credibility to each person's argument. She is herself preparing for a historic court case Wednesday morning, June 25, 2015 at 9:00am in the Federal building, 219 S. Dearborn in Chicago, before Judge Samuel Der-Yeghiayan in room 1903. This is a test case, and if won, can perhaps establish a blue print for how all African Americans can possibly be awarded damages for their pain and suffering, and at long last receive reparations.
