(Durham NC) For many years , the case for reparations for African Americans has been a controversial topic. Unfortunately, it is never brought up as a serious topic for debate during the presidential election season. However, with the current heated racial climate in this country following the controversies created over such racially explosive issues as the murder of African Americans by the police and the Confederate flag, the issue is re-emerging with vigor this election season.
Spearheading the effort is the Moorish Science Temple of America in Durham NC. The group has started a campaign to make sure that the topic of the reparations due to African Americans because of chattel slavery is front and center during the presidential debates.
The group is going to demand that all candidates running for political office whether Republican, Democrat or Independent support the distribution of reparations to African Americans.
