The Case for Reparations

The Case Of Reparations

  1. Coates argues that the plunder of black slaves, namely using force to steal goods from blacks – including the bodies of blacks themselves – was crucial to the success of the burgeoning American economy. Section V of “The Case for Reparations” is titled ‘The Quiet Plunder.’ What does the "quiet plunder" refer to? And what role does Coates suggest it played and continues to play in the 20th and the 21st-century American economy?
