Mayors endorse reparations that study pegged at $6.2 quadrillion

A political organization for U.S. mayors has adopted a resolution in support of reparations for blacks, and while the mayors didn’t address the cost, one study has suggested it could reach $6.2 quadrillion.That would be 6,200 trillion.

And that’s without considering the “costs of colonial slavery, as well as racial discrimination following the abolition of slavery in the United States.”

By comparison, the Gross Domestic Product of the world for 2019 was about $142 trillion, making the reparations about 43 times the total of the world’s production for the year.
