    "...a study by a UN-affiliated group now concludes that the history of slavery in the United States justifies reparations for African Americans.

    "The Washington Post reports that the Geneva-based United Nations' Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent presented its findings to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday. The UNWGEPAD (yes, it actually goes by that acronym), which includes leading human rights lawyers from around the world, reports to the international organization's High Commissioner on Human Rights. After a fact-finding mission to the US in January, these experts put together a study that links past racial injustices to present issues...."

    The UN can go stick it up their nose. How many other countries that formerly owned slaves have the called for reparations? This of course should include African nations as they caught people from their own continent and sold them into slavery.

    Wonder when they will condemn muslim slavery in the middle east? It's happening now...with people who are actually alive now. When will they tap Egypt for holding the Hebrews in slavery for hundreds of years? The payback there should be huge.

    Just saying...

    I don't know about the Irish cause, but I think that the UN in New York will vote that the USA should pay reparations.

    Why would the UN come out with a report like this now when there is such division among blacks and whites and riots in the streets?

    Is it trying to put out the fire by throwing more fuel on it?
