This is a topic, and the ridiculousness of it I have been so adamant about through the years called reparation. No one and I mean no one should be responsible for anyone else’s actions.
Simone Biles brother, Tevin Thomas is being charged with the murder of three people in Cleveland in December of 2018. Should she be held responsible for his actions?? The answer is absolutely no. And should she be compelled to pay reparation/damages for the death of the people he killed?? Absolutely no again

This has been a sore-spot that has been argued through they years whether the black community should be paid preparation for what happened 200 + years ago. Absolutely not again.
If we want to be fair minded-people we have to agree that, although this is not the same time and place, it is a matter of who should be held responsible for what. If the fair-minded conclude Simone is NOT responsible for what her brother did, how can anyone arguing the citizens of the the USA in 2019 are responsible for what some lunatics (black and white) did with slavery.
Simone put the icing on the cake with this statement:
CNN has reached out to Simone Biles for comment.Last night she tweeted, “Eating my feelings don’t talk to me.” She also liked a few tweets Friday morning, including one that said, “This is exactly why I hate the media in America. Has nothing to do with @Simone_Biles don’t drag her name through the mud because of something her brother did. She’s an American Icon & Hero for little girls everywhere.”
What fair-mined person can argue with that??
