--->THESE INHUMANE ACTS & WAR CRIMES CAN NOT AND SHOULD NOT BE IGNORED<---
What has been known as the Black (African) Holocaust, created among our people in Africa and the Diaspora, past and present; Genocide, Famine, Poverty and other horrible tragedies. These problems reflect as the result of; Chattel Slavery (Dehumanization, Subhuman Bondage), Abominable Brutalizations (Brandings, Beatings, Whippings, Mutilatings, Burnings, Lynchings, Rapings), Imperialism, Colonialism, Neo-Colonialism, Invasion, Depopulation, Theft of Land, Theft of Resources, Experimentation, Facilitating the Criminal Activities of secretive hate groups against African slaves and their descendants such as the Klu Klux Klan, White Citizens Council, Knights of the White Camelia and other Racist White Supremacist groups, etc under the system of Racism White Supremacy.
The Racist Governments in past embraced many injustices which gave birth to Inequality (Apartheid/Segregation Laws, Black Codes), Oppression and Discrimination of our African people. These Governments compensated the Slave Owners and not the African Slave Survivors which also affected the African Descendants of Slaves whom ended up having no substantial inheritance.
These Governments that have benefited from the enslavement of Africans, owe these families, whom are the Descendants of African Slaves, at the least compensation for the unpaid wages of our Ancestors that are well over due. The Governments today should not dismiss that it is a debt their Governments owe and could have paid many years ago to actual living African Slave Survivors but refused because of their continual prejudices.
Today's attitude towards African Reparations are, " Ignore it and it will go away", "Don't apologize for it because it will cause stronger cases for Lawsuits" ..This is not right.
France, Germany, United Kingdom, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Italy, North America, Netherlands, Denmark, Holland, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, etc...
If these Governments want to prove that they are not still Racist today, they must compensate for the Black Holocaust, especially to the African Descendants of Slaves or they will still hold that terrible label as Racist as many of their forefathers were.
Remember the original idea behind African Chattel Slavery was definitely not to compensate for any labour rendered and this is still the idea being perpetrated by these Governments as they remain silent to the issue.

To Succeed we must be Unified an act Politically and Legally! This is an issue that all people should take a stand for regardless of Race Classification! And it is not all about a dollar amount which people are fixated on; it's about Justice, Admission of Wrong Doings and Atonement which will truly aid in Racial Reconciliation!
We, the undersigned, call for the immediate attention to the cause of Reparations for the African Holocaust and the action to compensate the African people as a whole, especially to the deceased African Slave's living relatives, whom are their descendants.
