Should Black Americans be paid reparations for slavery?

Hello. My name is Phil. Over the past few years, we have seen some sporadic movement for the push of reparations being paid to blacks as a result of slavery. What do you have to say about this. Are blacks entitled? If so, who should pay? The government, corporations, individuals? Who? How would the money be divided? Should this matter be dropped? Please be honest in your comments as I am very curious as to what people have to say about this.
