Don Lemon suggested that the United Kingdom pay reparations for slavery during his primetime CNN show and possibly wound up regretting it. The context of the question is the recent passing of Queen Elizabeth II. There is a tremendous estate bestowed to King Charles III worth about one million dollars. Prince William will most likely take control of this estate. Many say that the United Kingdom possess wealth that should not belong to them due to the slave trade.
Don Lemon asked Royal Commentator and business consultant Hilary Fordwich if the United Kingdom should pay reparations for slavery and began to rattle off certain numbers. Fordwich said that if reparations were to be paid then it is important to go to the beginning of the supply chain. This would place a lot of responsibility on African leaders who sold other Africans to Europeans in the slave trade.
