01-CBC1 on Aug 31, 2001

Report: the CBC statement on the UN World Conference Against Racism
Source: CBC Statement on the UN World Conference Against Racism
Reparations is a serious issue that should be seriously discussed. Not only can we not deny African-Americans the opportunity to discuss the issue on the world stage, we cannot deny the rest of the world the opportunity to discuss the issue with America. It is sad that the forces of the status quo have suffocated the attempts of Rep. John Conyers to have a simple hearing on a bill to authorize a study regarding reparations. It is sadder still that they are now trying to suffocate the voices of the entire world [at the United Nations World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South Africa] . The damages suffered by families as a result of the slave trade are physical, mental and financial. They have long term consequences. If the world is to be a just one, we must engage in a real discussion about the resources that many people feel their ancestors were denied. Only when this is accomplished can we ever truly move beyond the wounds to focus on healing.
