on Reparations from di Gladstones fi dem enslavement practices?
Asking fi a friend

Guyana president Irfaan Ali on Thursday lashed out at the descendants of European slave traders, saying those who profited from the cruel, trans-Atlantic slave trade should offer to pay reparations to today’s generations.

The leader of the South American country also proposed that those involved in the slave trade be posthumously charged for crimes against humanity.

Ali spoke ahead of Friday’s planned formal apology in Guyana by the descendants of Scottish 19th-century sugar and coffee plantation owner John Gladstone, saying the apology should also include issues of compensation and reparative justice.

Reparations for slavery is not a matter which should be questioned.
We have been blinded by the British with their version of emancipation where the taxpayers paid the slave owners for the so called freedom.

Deal with the reality of history. You are still blinded by colonial entrapment.

The curtain of invisibility has been drawn back. Feeble attempt to explain away what is there.
