The notion that we would even have to have a commission to determine who is and who aint black, or black enough, and by what metric...to effect meaningful reparations for slavery and our continued systemic issues is, itself, a fantasy.  Any hypothetical funds could simply be directed towards programs that produce the intended effects in marginalized communities.  No Race Panel required.

As ever, glad to clear things up for you.
Which exactly what a great many reparation advocates are asking for

And which makes it a far more appealing model than the "every black person gets a huge-ass check that's supposed to represent the money their ancestors would have made if they were actually paid" model that comes to a lot of minds when the subject comes up (including mine, to be honest.)

... well, at least to most people besides the crypto-racist and the "not with my money" Libertarian crowd:
