Not everyone agrees with this concept, and I'm not certain I have a good answer for it. Genetic tracing and Ancestry.com? How black is black and how white is white? Not all whites owned slaves, and not all Americans, white or not, even had family in this country at that time in history. Taxes aren't just free money, people pay those burdens, and If perception of un-fairness is the root of anger, how does this not make things worse? Personally, I'd rather see justice come as a groundswell of support for equal justice for all, equal education and financial opportunity for all in a way that doesn't point fingers and call every white person a descendant of a former slave owner.
