Reparations should be paid to African Americans they are a people who have been through a lot for this country. They have contributed over half of things we use every day and never go the credit they deserve. That reason alone is should factor a major part of why their families should be compensated in some way , shape or form. In addition to that they have been beaten not just in slavery but today still their families deserve to be at least consoled for their losses from HATE CRIMES! Finally, even though you might think it to be a burden to pay for past crimes it really wouldn't be in fact it would just stimulate cash flow and create jobs to verify all of the necessary information just to name one profession.
Hell no! Anyone can apply and receive welfare whether they deserve it or not. African Americans specifically deserve to be at least acknowledged of their hard work and inventions as well as be compensated for their ideas that. Which were stolen, by the way, by the very same people who are trying to kill them off as we speak. Now I'm not saying all white people are bad , but the ones who stole are and have stood on African American's backs for far to long. I think its time African Americans stood up and knocked them on their asses.
