Lightbulb Slavery & Slave Trade

Any of you think the government (or the British Government for that matter) ought to compensate the descendants of slaves or is it just a phase of our history thus should let it go?

Post your answer here.
Discussion welcome!

I vehemently dispute the idea and personally believe that it’s going to be a costly and mammoth task to undertake such project. After all, it’s not only the brits who should foot the bills as the slave masters were from various white countries.
It would be impractical to assess the entitlement of every individual whose relative’s freedom was taken by those barons.

The compensation would be better invested on infrastructures in countries like Africa where they are accustomed to droughts.

You may beg to differ, but this is my personal belief.

Not at all Rocco, I totally agree with your point of view. If we look back in world history, many nations have been through the same thing - one example would be the jews, who were slaves in Egypt. None of them are asking to be compensated. I believe we should look at positive elements of that particular phase/period and use it to our advantage, rather than continuously feeling victimised.
