Working through 1, local associations and 42 state conventions, Southern Baptists share a common bond of basic Biblical beliefs and a commitment to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the entire world. The church should never turn its back on homosexuals who are searching and seeking to heal the hurts within their lives. In doing so, Christ can work through our lives to touch those lost in a world of confusion and darkness.
It is not, however, unforgivable sin. Let every Southern Baptist read this book and know the history that has been hidden for far to long. In addition to his academic work Dr. Carpenter has been a pastor of numerous churches and his career as a minster spans over 40 years.

Anonymous More than 1 year ago Such a load of hog wash. Whoever wrote this book needs to go back and research their civil war history, and not write books based on prejudicial and racist bias. Using wages or the price of slaves yields high estimates, while applying value of forgone agricultural land yields much lower estimates.
None of these estimates should be taken as a single number for the size of reparations, but rather as part of a larger package of elements that should go into estimates of reparations. Calculating damages that have a long time horizon of more than several decades can pose problems when the chosen discount rate ultimately fails. For instance, pension funds need to invest in a mix of safe and more risky vehicles in order to have the correct amount of payouts available many years into the future. Structured settlements face similar problems. Likewise, investments into climate change and the estimated rate of return is a choice between too much and not enough, and thus perhaps crowding out other investments or incurring larger costs later on.
Adams et. Agriculture is an inherently risky endeavor. If the harvest is poor, credit payments are difficult to make.

If the harvest is more than usual, prices drop and the benefit of a large harvest are depressed. If credit is not given in a timely manner, planting cannot happen in a timely manner and production is compromised. This happens to all Black farmers even today. Farming was particularly hazardous for Blacks because of lynchings and the burning down of farms, which resulted in thousands of acres of farm losses. In it was 28 per cent, but on average, over the period of between and it was 7 per cent.

The standard deviation he calculated was 6. The rate of returns from capital gains are even more volatile. By the s, land values recovered and have since appreciated tremendously. The red line in Graph 1 shows this trend. The green lines show estimates for one, two and 3 per cent discount rates. The blue line shows the results using an online inflation calculator. In summary, discount rates over long periods of time projected into the future need to take into account many risk factors that are germane to the industry and asset under consideration.
In the case of agricultural land, capital gains are highly volatile and influenced by weather, farm subsidies and farm credits as well as market support programs, including international trade. The failed promise to receive land after Abolition and the amount of land that was given back to White farmers and stolen through lynchings is the central theme of this paper and serves to estimate damages. Data for the period between and is spotty and often sources contradict each other.

While census data shows an increase in farms in the latter part of the 19 th century, it does not distinguish between Black and White farmers until The period in the early 20 th century represents the best case scenario for Black farmers as it was. After this period, many migrated to the North and agriculture in general suffered from many problems. Land values and number of farms from that period form the basis of estimates for damages. Historically, land values have been higher in the South than the average, except for Texas which is mainly cattle ranches.
Table 1 shows the agricultural land value and the level of appreciation in the Southern States. Both Texas and North Carolina had the highest land appreciation, of over 8 per cent, between and The lowest land appreciation was in Louisiana with 1. In general, for the Southern States, land appreciation is much larger than inflation rates. There are large regional differences across the United States, as shown in Graph 2.

In summary, land values differ from State to State, both in the s and today. Land values appreciated significantly more than estimates derived using inflation rates over this period. Since the s, agricultural land values increased three and four fold due to increased productivity and export subsidies for all kinds of agricultural products. Other subsidies, such as favorable credit, made farming less risky and a coordinated effort to store food and distribute the surplus to Africa and other areas with food shortages through the Agricultural Trade Development and Assistance Act, PL , meant farming in more marginal lands became profitable.
The Southern Homestead Act of failed the desire of Abolitionists to make available land on favorable terms to Freedmen. There were numerous problems, including land seizure and breakup of plantations, and general relationships between White and Black farmers, to name just a few. Nonetheless, this transition went along as well as it could while Federal troops oversaw this plan. But in troops retreated and these arrangements disintegrated. Du Bois estimated that Black farmers owned 3 million acres in and 8 million in The peak year, from census data, shows 12 million acres in fully owned by , and partially owned by 43, non-white farmers.
Roughly this is 60 acres per farm.

Today, there are 45, Black owned farms. In the early 20 th Century there was the so called Great Migration, when about 6 million Afrodescendants left the South. The majority of the population in South Carolina and Mississippi were African Americans, and were more than 40 per cent in Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana and Texas, and this changed drastically with migration to the North.
The agricultural census shows that there were over 3 million farms in the South farming million acres. Maps of this census show that almost all farms in the South were less than 80 acres, except for areas around Savannah. The census of does not distinguish between sharecroppers and tenants, and lists , Black tenant farmers and 1, Black farm managers cultivating 27 million acres. Sharecropping existed well into the s.
While Black owned farms were lost due to unclear titles and discrimination of access to farm credits, sharecroppers experienced over years of total denial of potential asset accumulation. In all fairness, this is true for White sharecroppers as well. In summary, in , there were a total of , Afrodescendants cultivating a total of 39 million acres. The total population of Afrodescendants was 10 million.
After there was a steady decline of Afrodescendant farmers and many moved to the North during the Great Migration in the ensuing decades. The calculations are based on data from , when agriculture was the main economic activity and when the majority of the population in the South was Black and rural.
