The only group that deserves reparations is Native Americans. We stole an entire country from them. This reparation issue is a slippery slope whereas if African Americans are to be compensated then so should Irish Americans, Italian Americans, Japanese Americans, Chinese Americans, etc (name any nationality American). Immigrants to this country were enslaved only it was called indentured servitude, prisoners, unpaid laborers, etc. but it was all against their will thusly defining it as slavery. Also, any U.S. citizen that has an ancestor who fought for the Union and was killed in the war to end slavery gets reparations too. NO,NO,NO REPARATIONS.
