I am sorry but this is just some false equivalency bullshit that needs to be countered. First of all I am going to get this out of the way by stating that I do not agree with the reparation to descendants of slaves. Its one thing to return items that were taken or payment to newly free slaves after it was ended but I completely and totally do not agree with what the UN/BLM is proposing.
Now that we have gotten that out of the way, lets just examine for a minute what you are saying. It seems to me that you think we are still on the same plantation, old slavery is new slavery and forced farm labor is same a taxed voluntary work life. The problem with your post is that for it to apply to the discussion of reparations for old slavery, one has to believe that old slavery and new age slavery is sorta on the same level. Now it is evident that this is not remotely true to any degree by the fact that nobody here would trade slavery under the modern state to physical, mental and spiritually tasking slavery the African American slaves lived through in the slave days. The same logic explains why people rightfully celebrate when they get out of prison even though were all living in a giant prison under the state and also the same reason why a prisoner asks for compensation after being released due to a false accusation.
Just a word of warning, telling a person asking for compensation because he had been falsely imprisoned to educate themselves about the real problem would be dangerous to your well-being, don't try what you did here to the real world. Yes we live in a plantation but compared to the plantations of the past, this is Shangri la, I would properly education myself about arguments from false equivalency before future posts like this.
