    Nope, she should only pay reparations for slaves she personally owned. It is not her fault that a master raped her ancestor.

    Blacks do not deserve reparations.  Current blackss have had multiple benefits by living in this country; and the slaves were provided with food, clothing, housing, medical care, etc in exchange for thier labor. Some blaciks were better off than the whites up north who slaved 12 hours a day in a factory for a mere pittence.

    Nobody should pay reparations for the sins of their ancestors for we are not our ancestors and not responsible for the actions of others.   

    That said, Harris has supported the idea of reparations for blacks, so by her own logic she should be paying reparations.

    Fact checkers have been unable to verify that a line of descent exists between the modern-day Harris family and the 19th-century slave owner. As such, the claim that an ancestor of Sen. Harris owned slaves in Jamaica remains unproven.

    Black Jamaicans are descendants of African slaves but, of course, many female slaves were raped by their owners. Does this in any way reflect badly on her? No.

    Well she is Jamaican and mother from India.

    There is no proof that she is descended from a slave owner but even if there was, I couldn't care less. There is no such thing as guilt by association.

    She should have to donate all her property to BLM.
