In 1980, President Jimmy Carter conducted an investigation to determine whether putting Japanese Americans into internment camps was justified well enough by the government. He appointed the Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians (CWRIC) to investigate the camps. The commission's report, named “Personal Justice Denied,” found little evidence of Japanese disloyalty at the time and recommended the government pay reparations to the survivors. They formed a payment of $20,000 to each individual internment camp survivor.
In 1988, Congress passed and President Ronald Reagan signed legislation that apologized for the internment on behalf of the U.S. government. The legislation said that government actions were based on "race prejudice, war hysteria, and a failure of political leadership". The U.S. government eventually disbursed more than $1.6 billion in reparations to Japanese Americans who had been interned and their heirs.
I just want to know where are the Black Americans reparations for the worst holocust committed in the history of mankind! Not take away from a serious matter towards other cultures. But Black folks have been in America since 1619 and most of us are still mentally emslaved. While other cultures cashed a check for their sufferings ages ago. What's holding up our checks? But America keep acting like it's not they business. Oh but it is! My friend. Oh yes it is.
