The National Black Foot Soldier Network (NBFSN) is a non religious movement whose mission and ideology are rooted in securing reparations for the unrestituted for crimes by America against the millions of descendants of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade.
If you are familiar with The National Legal & Policy Institute NLPI’s “The Case Against Slave Reparations,” you not only know how weak white America’s arguements against reparations are, but too, that the arguments used in it are rooted in the same racist ideologies of their fathers.
The charge that America has never paid for slavery ignores the 618,000 Americans who died in the Civil War.
The Civil War wasn’t fought to “free the slaves.” It was fought to “Preserve the Union. Yours didn’t “free the slaves out of love or morality. The Emancipation Proclamation was passed because the Industrial Age came to rise and slavery was no longer profitable. Lincoln himself said:
“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.” (Link)
In America’s colonial era, half of all the white immigrants arrived under some form of involuntary labor.
White “indentured servants” weren’t dehumanized, stripped of their identity and religion.
At the height of the slave trade around 1800, there were nearly as many slaves within Africa, 2.5 million, as the number of slaves in the Americas, 2.9 million.
There was no system of Chattel Slavery in Africa. Slaves were not dehumanized, stripped of their identity and religion.
The vast majority of Americans today are descended from immigrants who came to America after slavery was abolished in 1865.
The entire West profited from the system of Chattel Slavery, the entire West owes. Immigrants who came to America after the so called abolishment of slavery lived and profited in a society that still capitalized from the system of Institutionalized Discrimination and Racism.
Unlike reparations paid to Holocaust survivors, slavery reparations would not go to the actual victims.
The denial of reparations to our forefathers was done through duplicitous manipulation of the United States government.

Reparations isn’t about hand outs. Reparations is about justice. Our ancestors were not just slaves, our ancestors were abused. Generation after generation, they were then denied the restitution they were owed through a continual abuse of power.
No Justice, No Peace translates to No Reparations No Peace. Reparations for slavery is justice.
