Question: What makes BLC's reparations plan different from N'Cobra or the NAARC's?
Answer: The qualifying component and the educational component is a definitive plan to address the post traumatic slave syndrome that has affected DOAS adversely. If DOES are not properly prepared to receive reparations the oppressor will have our money back within their coffers within years if not months. We have been taught to be consumers, not empire builders.
Question: What if 2 Trillion is not enough to make DOES and the Black communities whole?
Answer: Within the plan, BLC repeats that 2 Trillion may not be enough, but we feel all that is due DOES should not be distributed all at once, we need years to plan ourselves back into a triving economy and must also have time to address the healing necessary for our communities to be the vibrant entities BLC envisions. Used prudently 2 Trillion every decade for 10 decades will provide adequate time and input from generations to come to not only make the Black community "whole" but the nation at well. We believe that the first 2 trillion will affect such a major change for DOES and the Black communities in such a large and impactful manner that if additional funds are necessary, the track record of DOES accomplishments with 2 Trillion encourage the distribution of additional funding every decade (ten years).
Question: Who is behind the Black Leaders Coalition?
Answer: We are a group of grassroots organizations that have been credible messengers in the Black communities for decades. Our work is our resume. We do not pose as experts but we know what healthy Black people and Healthy Black communities look like.
