That’s because you’re deliberately taking my words out of context. In my previous paragraph I mentioned how the Caribbean struggle for reparations helped to spark the current reparation claim for African Americans, as well as the fact that activists from South America have also assisted the African American struggle for reparations. So that’s why my position is that when African Americans do win their struggle for reparations it will be with the support of other Africans in the diaspora.
