" When millions of people have been cheated for centuries, restitution is a costly process.
Inferior
education, poor housing, unemployment, inadequate health care -
each is a bitter component of the oppression that has been our heritage.
Justice so long deferred has accumulated interest and its cost
for this society will be substantial in financial as well as human terms. "
