The divergence time between the Neanderthal and modern human lineages is estimated at between 750,000 and 400,000 years ago. Any remaining Neanderthal DNA in today's human population is so insignificant that it shouldn't even be a factor.

The principles haven’t been met: we couldn’t establish harm to specific individuals as a result of specific historic others.

Unlike slavery say or colonial occupation in the British case as well

Who’s this “we”? The only people on the planet who don’t have any Neanderthal DNA are Africans. Are you suggesting they pay the rest of the world?

Reparations could be claimed all over the place. Better action against racist policies and making all people better off and more equal will go farther. Reparations are still being talked about because not enough changes have been fully implemented since 1865 through 1868. Remember, the first sitting President to apologize for slavery was Clinton. I don't remember, so I'm asking - did any of the Presidents apologize for the genocide of Natives? Oh yea, Obama did.
