Randall Robinson’s book The Debt What America Owes to Blacks

After the army, Robinson earned BA in sociology in Virginia Union University and than, attended the Harvard University Law School for advanced graduate work. All these years Randall Robinson participated in different political campaigns including the movement against apartheid in South Africa. After graduation, Randall Robinson "won a Ford Foundation fellowship that allowed him to work in Tanzania" (TransAfrica founder, 2005). Being an experienced human rights advocate, Randall Robinson did everything to protect human’s rights and resist to the world coalition of false peacemakers who did nothing to help people in South Africa during the genocide period. Some years of research had shown that abuse of power in African countries was caused by "concealment" policy provided by American government. In order to change this policy, Randall Robinson founded "TransAfrica" organization (1977) aimed to "keep before the public the plight of Africa and the Caribbean" (TransAfrica founder, 2005). His thoughts and ideas about racial and ethnical relations Randall Robinson expressed in several books ("The Debt","The Reckoning, and "Defending The Spirit") informing our society about real state of the matters in African countries and the US policy towards African and Caribbean nations.

In his book, Robinson provides vivid examples of slave labour, and explains why the government and nation in general has to pay. He writes that slaves were used to "clear a broad swath of forest" for the Capitol building on Jenkins Hill and the President’s Palace, "the worn and pitted stones, They had mixed the mortar. They had sawn the long timbers in hellishly dangerous pits with one slave out of the pit and another in, often nearly buried alive in sawdust" (Robertson, 3). Robertson underlines that this work has been taken for granted as a causal explanation of slavery. There seemed to be general agreement that slavery and the material resources to which it gave access would do far better as a general explanation of the phenomena under discussion.
Randall Robinson supposes that American government must compensation 246 years of "de jure" discrimination policy through educational and economic programs for black population, because black
