APsplainin | America's ["]last slave ship["] could offer a case for reparations
"Now, the history of Meaher and the slave ship Clotilda may offer one of the more clear-cut cases for slavery reparations, with identifiable perpetrators and victims."

No. AP published this story to suggest proscribing the cause of action and class certification of claimants demanding reparations for multiple injuries by the US federal gov. More despicable than contradicting the pertinent legislative bill, by omitting state liabilities in this specious  "narrative" and reducing standing to sue to private parties, the plot seemingly verifies the conviction of 63% of McConnell's crypto-libertarian residents that they are not beneficiaries of historical slave labor, much less systematic economic frauds, peonage, and political discrimination harming descendants of US slaves.

Trump: "African Americans built this nation. You built this nation. You know, you're just starting to get real credit for that, OK? I don't know if you know that ... You built the nation. We all built it. But you were such a massive part of it. Bigger than you were given credit."

He said the C-word. Twice. Alrighty then.

NYT, the publisher that invented yellow cake and the "1619 Project" for Dummies (Oct 2019), reports:
"'We're Self-Interested': The Growing Identity Debate in Black America," an exposé of #ADOS agitators for restitution, reparations payments ($0 paywall)

I declined to support NYT advertising sales plans. Pre-view its reporter's sources before you register or review four years' weekly YouTube broadcasts PR by Antonio Moore and Yvette Carnell preparing for the 2nd ADOS Conference. It's as close to Niagra Movement, politically and ideologically, as post-racial 21st cen. USA is going to get during the 4th red scare and without commie benefactors.
