Title: OK, Let’s Give Them Reparations—If They Go Back to Africa

After weeks of rioting, looting, and wanton attacks on whites, after weeks of tearing down statues of Confederates and Columbus, after months and years of hearing the lie that it is unsafe to be a black man or woman in the systemically racist USA, it’s time to admit that black nationalist Marcus Garvey was right. Blacks and whites just can’t get along.

It’s time for Americans to look seriously at one answer to the racial injustice, real and imagined, that “peaceful protesters,” Black Lives Matter, and Antifa say must be rectified: not reparations, meaning a cash payment from those who never owned slaves to those who never were slaves (see Carl Horowitz’s refutation Slavery Reparations: Revival of a Bad Idea [PDF]) but restitution—offering blacks the chance to return, at taxpayer expense, to their ancestral homelands in Africa…which is in fact what black separatist Garvey advocated.

Let me be clear: Cops are not shooting black men for no reason. Things are better for blacks today than for most of our history and for blacks anywhere else.

But the fact remains that impressions are real. Many blacks really do think they should fear police and other government agencies. We must accept this. Denying it, or explaining why blacks have nothing to fear, is pointless.

How practical it was to send blacks back to Africa by sailing or steamship will never be known. But today, international airline travel is affordable to all: a ticket from the U.S. to Ghana, host of the 2019 Year of Return, can be had for less than $1,000. Airline capacity to Africa appears to be enormous and underused, which offers any large-scale program of return the possibility of substantial per-seat savings [Africa Aviation Outlook 2019: Change may be in the air – at last, CentreForAviation.com, January 31, 2019].

As well, $14 trillion in reparations for slavery, as proposed by Black Entertainment Television founder Robert Johnson, would easily cover the cost of sending all 37.1 million American blacks to Africa, with more than $10 trillion left for generous resettlement packages. [BET founder Robert Johnson calls for $14 trillion of reparations for slavery, CNBC, June 1, 2020]

That’s a lot of money. But it also solves a problem, at least for blacks who feel hunted and unsafe in the white jungle.

Of course, returning to Africa should be voluntary, and blacks who consider themselves Americans and do not feel hunted or discriminated against should not be forced to return to a country and continent they do not know or even want to know.

But for the BLM activists, for those convinced the deck in the U.S. is stacked against them, repatriation permanently repairs the continuing “legacy of slavery.” To participate, blacks would have to renounce American citizenship and accept the passport of an African country.

One problem. Africans don't like American blacks. At least not in Tanzania, where I spent a month with the Maasai.
