The Radical Practicality of Reparations

A reply to David Frum who thinks affirmative action ( what affirmative action?) in the form of The Philadelphia Plan is reparations enough. Ta-Nehisi Coates takes him to task. 

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus‘s insight:

Well, we all knew it was going to happen. These folks have lost their minds with TA-NEHISI COATES "The Case for Reparations". Here David Frum attempts to defend the indefensible. And Ta-Nehisi Coates refutes his silliness.

Read "The Case for Reparations" here

 And if you have time to waste, read Frum’s feeble attempt to dismantle logic, and demonstrates that he views reparations only in a very narrow context, no matter how much truth before him.

I suppose there are those who feel that "reparations" are exclusively only for them. I remember when a certain group was offensive when we started using the term, "African Holocaust".
