Readers sound off on reparations, building costs and high schools admissions testing

Manhattan: As it was the Democrats alone who stubbornly defended slavery (their “peculiar institution”) before, during, and even after the Civil War, and it’s the modern Democrats (still alone) who favor reparations, perhaps the best solution is for them to get together as a party, collect however so much they feel is necessary from their obviously willing members, and mete it out to whomever they believe is deserving of such largess, while leaving the rest of us out of it. No new laws needed, no one forced to pay, a win/win! Paul Weiss
