A major risk of slavery reparations is the casting of one group of people as the only people in the society who have suffered injustice, and then acting as though one payment to that single group automatically resolves all past, present, and future injustice in the society as a whole.
Did you know 22 veterans commit suicide everyday? Did you know that the suicide rate has gone up with the general public tremendously this year because of isolation? Just be aware when you’re engaging with people around you. We never know what others are going through. And holidays...during Covid...job losses...financial strain...an effed up election...are a recipe for this. Be extra kind right now. I only say this because I am a veteran and I’ve worked with them. Have a great week.
