( -- A new survey shows that 67% of American adults oppose making cash-payment reparations to black Americans who are the descendants of slaves. Only 29% said cash-reparations should be made.

Along political lines, 92% of Republicans said no to cash-reparations, as did 47% of Democrats. Also, 65% of Independents said no to reparations.
