AbstractThe United States government's posture at the 2001 World Conference Against Racism (WCAR), where the transatlantic slave trade was declared a crime against humanity, evaded a warranted claim by African-Americans for compensation for the enslavement of their ancestors. This evasive posture is anomalous in
light of U.S. government support for and administration of reparations for other groups subjected to recent or historic grievous wrongs.
