^^ I understand , I think the biggest problem is these issues should have been dealt with at the time they occured...Because as more time passes the more difficult/complicated it becomes to resolve these issues as Bobgeorge previous post alluded to.
It's not really complicated. The Tulsa Oklahoma race riots, for example, and those Blacks chased off their property in various towns in America, due to racists who stole their personal property and homes, should have received compensation. It's documented info. There are a few still alive, although elderly, and, whose family members have been fighting to have that property returned to their families.
I don't believe it could not have been resolved at the time, because the racist mentality, racial discrimination and racial ignorance towards Blacks, regardless of abolishment of slavery laws/Jim Crow/segregation laws, post civil rights act being signed, racial discrimination/unfair and unequal treatment, in various sectors of society , still existed. We've made bandaid progress since then. Very few non-Blacks paid for those past crimes against Blacks, but many Blacks pay for crimes against Blacks.
This whole situation is bigger than these actual events pinpointed, and goes beyond America. Can anything be done? Well, it's not impossible. In the below article, Jewish survivors of the Holocaust, including 'family members,' were awarded funds.
This American Indian group received this fund:
