Jamaicans fighting for Reparations. Update from the World Conference Against Racism

PARAMARIBO, Suriname (AP) - A Jamaican lawyer who lost a slavery reparations lawsuit against Britain's Queen Elizabeth II said Monday he would take the case to the United States.

See full Story!

"We lost the case against the Queen and her descendants because the court ruled that we could not prove we are related," Lorne said. "But the evidence from this conference would help."

Miguel Lorne lost a case in 2002 in Jamaica's High Court because he couldn't prove that the island's blacks were direct descendants of enslaved Africans.

This is totally an absurd argument....that there is no proof that black Jamaicans are the descendants of slaves...how the hell did they get their from Africa? This is the total disrespect of black people and our history. As they say....it is not what you KNOW...its what you can PROVE.

LOL, Noah, we have to have a sense of humor as not to go a kill someone over some of the foolishness that come from their mouths. You are correct, Black folk existence along in Jamaica is proof of a crime just as ours is in America.
