I don’t think this will work because there are some groups who arrived here as immigrants after slavery who are better off than we are, they’ve practiced anti-Blackness and discrimination, and they have consumed positions to extend their groups social capital. For instance, Native Americans owned slaves, practiced anti-Blackness and withdrew access to tribal recognition for many Blacks who were enslaved and freedsmen living on reservations. Do they pay for practicing the same atrocities they were put through?
