Charleston boasts five plantations in the near vicinity, Magnolia, Boone Hall, Drayton Hall, Macleod Plantation and  Midddleton Place.

I've visited only Boone Hall and Gardens. Lovely when the azaleas are in bloom.

I don't know if this has been shared but Georgia's Stone Mountain park has a historic square of homes and other 18th/19th century buildings moved from sites around the state and reassembled/restored. The square includes a variety of homes including slave cabins, gin house, cookhouse, school, carriage house, barnyard with livestock, kitchen and formal gardens.

Iím surprised the descendants of slaves havenít been able to claim hefty reparations.

Considering we are still fighting to have slavery taught properly in schools and to get rid of confederate monuments, Iím not going hold my breath.

I know this threat is about the US but I'm offering some knowledge of reparations and compensations from when the UK outlawed the slave trade and slave ownership

The compensations the government paid to slave-owning families was so vast that it was only paid off in 2015. Almost 200 years after slavery was completely outlawed in the UK. The money to pay this came from taxpayers. So any UK taxpayer who paid tax before 2015 paid towards those compensations (I doubt many would have been aware of this).

Sadly, and as you can probably imagine, no compensations or reparations were ever paid to any of those formerly enslaved.

I know it's hard to compare, and the UK has a long, long way to go in terms of recognising its past, acknowledging it and even addressing it, but it may give you some insight relating to how or why the US has failed to offer any compensations or reparations.

Well you said it perfectly. I have no intentions of paying reparations for something I had nothing to do with, nor my grandparents, nor theirs. Not to mention that those who could’ve benefited are no longer with us and many other reasons/issues.

Well thank you Aubiette.  Research has proven that my .... I don't quite know, 10th great grandfather? owned 4 slaves, in NY, in 1770.   Not something I feel proud of.  Yet also not something I feel that I, personally, owe anyone money for.  I can only be the best person *I* can be, to attone for any wrongful actions of the past.  In the lifetime of Philip H. (my ancestor) it was normal to own a few slaves.  I can hope he treated them humanely.  He is the only ancestor of mine on record of owning people, at least I can also hope he was the last.

I know, my 3rd great-granduncle sacrificed his health as an engineer on Underground Railroad.  His wife was equally as tough when mobs would descend on their house.

You know what would be a fantastic way to pay reparations?

Pump money into HBCUs, teach slavery PROPERLY in public schools, take down public Confederate monuments, evenly distribute state taxes to all schools instead of them just going to schools in certain communities, and stop over policing black communities.

That would be a great place to start.
