If the govt. admitted their injury, earmarked money for restitution, why the hold up? Start processing claims. Ensure that processing includes safety nets for fraud. The discriminated farmers SHOULD receive their due.

That said, did anyone else catch this from the article?

"The family has gotten by, but her children, now in their 40s, have had their own struggles with employment, which could have been avoided if she was given the opportunity to purchase farmland decades ago, Brooks said."

How would owning farmland have helped her children's 'employment struggle'? It wouldn't! Here's one woman who wants to blame everyone else for her and her children's failures. HER claim should be rejected!

Little wonder!, Blacks are under a curse, Let me explain, You know that story in the Bible, In the book of Genesis about Noah asleep in His tent, Ham (Noah's son) Came in the tent and saw Noah's nakedness and went and bragged to His brothers about it, After Noah awoke He found out what Ham did to Him, Noah pronounced a curse upon Canaah ( Ham's grandson), Canaah is the father of the Black race of people and all Blacks bear this curse!. I know this one Black dude who resents this fact, One day I overheard Him cussing The Holy Spirit all to pieces!, You should have heard Him, It was so funny, You'd die laughing!.
