Slave Reparations?!: Join the Live Chat

A billion-dollar federal program for settling African-American discrimination claims. We'll talk to a Congressman who says it's full of fraud and amounts to what he says are slavery reparations.
We'll also check the government's numbers and speak with the head of the Black Farmers Association.
We're keeping them honest. Plus, tonight's other headlines.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short (we don't have time to read a "book")
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (there's no need to yell)
3) Use your real name (first name only is fine)
4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    So sounds like prison shouldn't be that bad if you have access to alcohol, grass and facebook with your blackberry. Hmm.
