Trevor Noah talks Reparations ...#ADOS
Who deserves reparations and who is a descendant of slavery in America are questions to be answered or to create barriers?
WHO ARE DOS-If your parental family lineage goes back prior to the 60's in the US and they where they are described as negro, colored, African American, black before 1965 you may have the lineage links to be considered a descendant of slaves or ADOS. You may find this information in vital statistics, death certificates, census bureau, health records, schools, churches, hand written in family bibles.
Who are POC- ADOS are not POC- People of Color as those are immigrants and descendants of immigrants and refugees or anyone self describing their identity as black or people of color for the purpose of deceptions to usurp rights and resources intended for ADOS.
SPEAKING OUT- Actual descendants of American slaves are saying hold up we are not going to allow you as POC or an immigrant to erase our presence, our contributions, our pains to create discord for our calls for justice and liberties denied to us or our ancestors, neither are we allowing you to usurp our claims for our ancestors debts owed but not paid, when your ancestors were not impacted by slavery here in America. That is disrespectful respect our space.
As so the descendants are therefore asking for our specific ethnic identity to be recognized by the US government as a means of identifying our distinct lineage and common culture and suffering for the purpose tied to black enslaved citizens specifically.

The Role of Faith Communities
Churches, Temples, Mosques, etc.
Will faith organizations especially white based faith communities become aligned allies?
Will the faith communities step up to become leaders in the moral and spiritual healing that America needs now?
Racism is rampant and racial reconciliation is needed soon before we implode as a nation at the center of it is our country's history of holding on to the history of slavery and white supremacy the wound that continues to divide us giving power to the past and racist. At this time in history we are at a fork in the road of our future as a nation and the descendants of slavery known as African Americans, Negroes, Colored, Blacks (ADOS) are pushing to move past the past and to heal the nation from legislated hate at its base of slavery which promotes white superiority not equality.
We can use the words from the book used to keep people in servitude and others in spiritual bondage tied by hate for thy neighbors, now be used as the book to guide and spiritually free the descendants of the slave masters and create a new history with a reparative model at its base for healing a nation, using faith books as a guide to show how men who wronged other people should atone for their sins?
Atonement starts in the commitment of anyone, and any congregation of faith to do what is right in support of ADOS reparations as the Black descendants of slaves who are owed money for labor never paid and promises not kept, for liberties and justice denied by legislative actions of our government to economically oppress ancestors and ADOS from the time of the foundational promise America made but did not fulfill towards American Descendants of Slaves who never received the forty acres and a mule and never felt their full citizenship by enjoying citizenship right of having liberties and justice for all.
ATONEMENT IS CONCILIATION THROUGH REPARATIONS FOR DOS IS JUSTICE
Some white faith congregations are accepting that something needs to be done to repair the racial divide of the country.
They have committed to stepping up as the religious moral leaders supporting reparations as a spiritual path to healing the soul offering redemption to those who were unwilling participants or beneficiaries of the oppression injustices supported by legislation to enslave a group of people for the financial benefit of others.
They are pushing to help make the government accountable for it's actions. White congregations are learning how to communicate messages of the wrong and harm of slavery to their members.
Trainings are offered to white and black faith organizations, social justice ministries and faith leaders to take the lessons back to their congregants of how to communicate a conversation on reparations, and the call for reparations to support healing . (Interested Click here to register)\
Preparing congregations for a collective reparations spiritual movement aligned with African American congregations and Black grass root organizations is essential to the faith community being on one accord with the need for souls to come clean and make amends for the continued benefits of that wrong even today.
This is a olive branch for collaborations between grass root organizations faith congregations and individuals supporting reparations for African Descendants of Slaves in America.
This is effort to help identify descents of slaves and the millions of Black people who lived resiliently through their ancestral relatives.
Slave services forced on our ancestors are recognized here and we are utilizing this page to honor them by educating anyone who wants to learn the proud heritage of Africans who were enslaved in America, in spite of conditions created to oppressed, regress and dehumanized them for the benefit of white superiority feelings and benefits.
Blacks are still pushing for dignity of their ancestor through the fight for reparations payments owe. Black descendants are pshing for the value of the labor of their families which deprived them of generational wealth building opportunities and are demanding it to be paid forward as it should to their families for those who instituted the harm and those who legislated the harm. By making reparate concessions and reparations payments to the descendants of the enslaved.
Reparations are the beginning of a process to heal discords to make right the wrong of slavery. It is a beginning of healing families and to close some of the economic gaps created by that era which destabilized future generations of slave descendants.
This push by African American Descendants of Slaves a specific group of Black people is to have the stolen labor, pain, genocide, parent child separations, lynching, stolen heritage, and the forbidden use of their native language is a denial of their humanity.
Remember that even when the descendants of slaves began to thrive white descendants of those same en slavers destroyed the progress, they did and are doing everything to erase Black success stories, and there is still a remnant of the descendants of white slave owners who show up and still intimidate black people for everyday acts of living.
That social power wielding will not stop until the majority of whites who know that is wrong do the right thing and come collectively against the few engineering unacceptable social behavior changes.
