Justin Hansford Professor at Howard University and Supporter of Reparations

Justin Hansford is a professor of law at Howard University and is a supporter of reparations, namely the transfer of wealth to black descendants of slaves. You might not be surprised to know that I have a serious problem with the idea. I look forward to an interesting and intellectual discussion.

San Francisco reparations idea: $5 million per Black person - ABC News (go.com)

Related: At least this white person's apparently guilty conscience is based on acts of her actual family members. It's not for me to judge how she lives her life...but that doesn't mean I won't. I think that if she's going off to do this other venture because she really believes in it and it will offer fulfillment and meaning in her life, then that's great. But if it's because she thinks she has some sort of historical debt, that's nonsense. If I were going to look to take the opposite side of my argument I guess what I'd say is that if she lives a life of financial comfort due to inherited money that was generated at least in part due to the slave trade, then it's not ridiculous to "give back" in some way. But that specific situation will apply to precious few living humans.
