- (B) Whether African-Americans still suffer from the lingering effects of the matters described in paragraphs (1), (2), (3), and (4).
- (C) Whether, in consideration of the Commission's findings, any form of compensation to the descendants of African slaves is warranted.
- (D) If the Commission finds that such compensation is warranted, what should be the amount of compensation, what form of compensation should be awarded, and who should be eligible for such compensation.
Apparently this bill is not new and has been reintroduced every session by Mr. Conyers since 1989.
