If you don't support reparations, then you're supporting white supremacy

I believe we have to take action, but there is something black people can plan for in just 1 year that would support not only the fight for reparations, but build up our neighborhoods in the meantime. If every black person in america (45 million) would set aside $100 of xmas money to put in a national fund for the descendants of chattel slavery, that would be $4 trillion each year. If only half were enlisted, it would be $2 trillion. We could support our own candidates in key positions of government to help solve the tragic outcomes of police interaction. Black ball players who aren't allowed to protest could participate in the fund anonymously and still have an effect. We know not everyone will agree. Some will make jokes. I would ask you to please state an alternative, or we could just sit back and complain forever.
