Should reparations be paid to black people? Why questions would be why stop there, and show me any living slave owner and slave – and get one to pay the other.
The fundamental conflation is that blacks were once slaves, and that they are now poor. The two things aren’t necessarily connected – and in any case cash payments wont help.
Should north africans give reparations to the hundreds of thousands of white European slaves they took (yes this is real). How about Italians giving reparations to, say, British people for the Roman Empire? None of this makes any sense morally, or logically.
