      "Cowardice asks the question: is it safe? Expediency asks the question: is it political? Vanity asks the question: is it popular? But conscience asks the question: is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor political, nor popular - but one must take it simply because it is right."

      very good I Am Truth. Know what's funny, not ha-ha funny? With all those references in the air, many many Black Folk still holla: its crazy; demanding reparations!

      what many fail to realize this is not a modern phenomenon... it stretches waaaaaaaay back to at least the 19th Century.

      Should be useful for us; i.e., this type reference which surely will point to others.

      Reparations for slavery is a proposal that some type of compensation should be provided to the descendants of enslaved people in the United States, in consideration of the coerced and uncompensated labor their ancestors performed over several centuries.
