Why reparations would make any sense?

Only Blacks were denied the right to vote and then only counted as 3/5ths.


Voting is controlledby individual statele gislatures. Only white men age 21 and older who own land can vote.

Americans need to pay reparations to the white non-land-owners because they where unable to vote?

Then add in bias in the justice system and it's evident how much others have benefitted while they could not.

This is another one.

I know that black people commit crimes at the same % of white but are more likely to get arrested because police "pay more attention" and this is another point.

Yes, it is a symptom of systemic racism and i agree but honestly i fail to see how it could be resolved, these people still commited crimes, i see no excuse.
