This paper contends that the reparation movements sometimes have their heart in the right place, though sometimes not. The paper assesses that the passing of reparations legislation would force the economic exploitation of one group (modern European-Americans) for the benefit of another (modern African-Americans). Doing so would solve none of the problems facing the African-American population in the United States today, but would create new problems and inflame old ones. The paper claims that, for these reasons, plus the bad logic upon which the pro-reparations argument is based, it is unlikely that reparations legislation will ever be seriously considered by Congress.
