Oops, sorry about that. I was wondering where that one about the Democrat legislators fleeing Texas went. Too many open tabs.

But yeah...Jamaica wants reparations:

Jamaica wants £7 BILLION compensation from UK for Britain's involvement in slave trade over hundreds of years

Quote

Jamaica is planning to ask the United Kingdom for compensation for the Atlantic slave trade in the former British colony, a senior government official said.

The Caribbean island nation will file a petition that could seek billions of pounds in reparations, pending legal advice, according to Olivia Grange, Jamaica's minister of sports, youth and culture.

She said the country hoped for 'reparatory justice in all forms' to 'repair the damages that our ancestors experienced'.
