I understand WHY... but I don't understand how it would be implemented practically. What about multi racial people, do they get a fraction of the money someone else does? How do we give African Americans 9 states worth of land? Kick everyone else out? I just don't get how this could actually be realized. 

Justice will served perfectly in the next life inshaAllah.

^ I don't think you need to wait until the " next life" for your society to start dealing with the inequities created by its past. @Reza and @AbdulKarim313_Austin/Nola and others on this topic laid out the areas needing healing pretty clearly. Money, time and effort needs to be spent dealing with them. We seem to have plenty of money for every war. Let's spend it on our communities instead.

Agreed. But in terms of handing out individual checks, which I thought was the idea, I don't see how that would work. 

Other community building ideas would be great though. 

Oh and if it was already addressed, I apologize. I didn't and don't feel like rereading all the posts :book:

There have been quite a few ideas put forth in the media, from what little I could follow today. This keeps coming up. There WERE  some form of reparations given out to the Japanese-Americans who were put in US internment camps during WWII. That was a relatively small group of people, though.

Slavery is not relevant today and hasn't been for several decades. There is nobody who can claim compensation. 

surely you know not how low low lows go. Modern slaves:furious:

They have made Satan the master of their affairs, and he has taken them as partners. He has laid eggs and hatched them in their bosoms. He creeps and crawls in their laps. He sees through their eyes, and speaks with their tongues. In this way he has led them to sinfulness and adorned for them foul things like the action of one whom Satan has made partner in his domain and speaks untruth through his tongue. Imam Ali(عليه السلام) sermon seven.

Dr... Ali Shariati says modern slaves are worth gold & they pay the price (they sold themselves freely).
