From Campus Reform:

Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson recently suggested that white people should open up “individual reparations accounts” to literally pay back African Americans for slavery.

In an interview with New York Times Magazine, Dyson asserted that such an account, which he dubs an “I.R.A.” for short, would be a concrete means to compensate for the damages of slavery, though later in the interview he suggests that the main purpose behind the idea is to force white people to confront their privilege.
