My name is Glenn Robinson and I have been inspired by Damali Ayo’s National Day of Panhandling for Reparations .
I run a blog called Community Village and another called Oppression Monitor. I thought these would be perfect places to ‘panhandle’ for donations that can be paid right back out.
I will use these funds to pay out reparations and use 33 cents from each transaction to maintain the payment system.

This is a MUST SEE internationally award winning film that depicts and explores facts of history that are not whole known or taught in any educational system. It is an eye-open look at the concept that makes the case for why reparations should be open for discussion and the necessity for it to be addressed. -John Wills

Since writer and cultural critic Ta-Nehisi Coates made his compelling “Case For Reparations” in The Atlantic, it has been a hot-button topic and the questions have come fast and furious.
What is reparations? What should it look like? How has slavery and subsequent systems of oppression had a continuing impact on Black Americans?
Will the United States ever pay reparations for its role in what amounts to domestic terrorism against African Americans?
The truth is: The government has already paid reparations — to slave owners.
