How to Comment on Reparations

An open comments section on "The Case for Reparations"

Here is your uncurated space to talk about reparations. Later we will have a curated space according to the usual rules on my blog. Even though this is uncurated—it is still moderated. In other words, you still have to obey basic Atlantic rules of commenting.  No one will try to steer the conversation, but namecalling and blatant trolling will still bring the pain of banhmmer.

Think of this as Hamsterdam. But what happens in Hamsterdam, must stay in Hamsterdam.
