Not just slavery, but also for the centuries of colonial rule. The European powers exploited the Africans for many hundreds of years and during the colonial rule vast quantities of the African natural resources were stolen by them.

It was not just the Europeans. The first colonial power in Africa were the Arabs. Their rule was ten times more brutal than those by the Europeans. And the Africans got nothing in return. At least the Europeans educated the Africans and built a lot of infrastructural facilities, although they were benefiting immensely from the extraction of the natural resources.

This is stupid idea, why should persons who have nothing to do with events of past days pay to another people who have nothing to do with it? Not agree.

Because they get benefits from exploitation of Africans. Europe came the current situation exploiting Africa and Asia through imperialism. people and countries under their colonies suffered alot.

You have a point there. Also, anyone asking for repatriations should be ready to move back to the country of origin of their forefathers, and they should pay the US government for all the facilities they have enjoyed (including education and healthcare). If there was no slave trade, then they would have remained as illiterate tribesmen in Nigeria or Congo.

Sure they have to pay now, but they build damn impires on slave labor. I think it will be kinda right decision.
For all the suffer and toll they have to have at least some money instead!

But they would never pay rather than trying to exploit them further more with a new avatar, new way is they give them loans for failed projects, those third world countries think they will be a developed country with those projects but what happens is they create a big mountain of loans that they are unable to pay off. Then those western countries exploit them using that opportunity. So that's how the trap works, no one can't blame cos they didn't invade the country with military forces but still did the same using their institutes such as world bank, IMF.

How you can think in terms "Europe should repay"? How Europe as a continent, as a part of Earth may be quilty in something? If I was born in Europe in 1987 then should I pay? For what? Well you should find sertain people or their relatives who are quilty, prove it and make them pay, that would be fair.
I hate authorities try to make us think in such terms and beleive in quotes like "Russia against terrorism" or "America provides democracy". Some people play some games not Europe, Asia, America or Earth itself.

No matter who enslaved who in previous generations, we can't let their grand sons and grand daughters pay for what their ancestors did. Why don't we focus more on moving forward rather than bringing back the ugly past?

Have you guys watched ''12 years as a slave''- movie? It is very pathetic to see how slaves were treated by White people, Color of skin makes the discrimination , how cruel world this was ?

Do you believe that Hollywood depicts the truth? For heaven's sake, if you want to learn what happened in the past, then read some history books. Watching Hollywood movies is not a good way to improve your historical knowledge. Yes... the slaves were treated very badly back then in the US. But in other countries, they were treated even worse.

There has been always little difference between the truth and the movies; because filmmaker are used to modify the history as per their convenient, so there is nothing wrong. Their ultimate aim is to make the film more appealing. I think we have to move on and needs to be focus on future , it doesn't matter who had done what in the past, united nations should come forward and help these countries at their level to get them out of poverty.

Nope, they shouldn't. I mean slavery was done by the ancestors of Europeans, so I don't think the current generation should be held accountable. Also, if money is given to the African nations, most governments will likely pocket the money instead of investing it in their country. If any form of payment should be done, Europe should provide more education to the Africans in the form of scholarships to European universities and such.

Do you honestly believe that European countries should pay reparations to African countries for the sins of Slavery ?

No, for instance, you can't hold me accountable for something my forefathers did.

Should every country that has been at war with another country start paying reparations?

Also anyone who believes Europe should obviously ignores that africans sold their own kind out to white slave traders. So their forefathers themselves are guilty aswell.. some might not like to hear this but its the truth. So no I don't really care, if you are pro reparations you are only promoting racism, saying its a white v black thing whilst blacks were equally involved in this trade and made money on it aswell.

If they do get reperations I would like reperations from the Vatican for the pieces of papers they sold to my forefathers saying that god would forgive their sins and they'd get into heaven. I would also like reperations for the crusades that were organised in the name of the Vatican to their own benefit and further their selfish agenda of more power.

I would also like reperations from the Spanish for invading my country and plundering it and massacring + robbing protestants based on their religious beliefs.

Yeah.. see where this is going? This whole reperations thing is fucking nonsense.
