...and I definitely agree with you.
However, there were a few people in this thread that were getting carried away with the idea that believing in a need for reparations makes a person "crazy". It is not crazy. But, it is also not the answer (which you have pointed out).
Government initiatives to further the education of minorities have a much more lasting benefit (as was pointed out by another poster).
