$5 MILLION in Reparations to Each Resident

It doesn’t matter that California was never a slave state.  They’re going to make up for it anyway.  The San Francisco “Reparations Committee” is proposing that each black resident receive $5 million and total debt forgiveness as an apology for decades of suffering.  But that’s not all.  This committee wants to help supplement their income so they can afford housing.  But the Council President says it isn’t enough.

Need more reparations

San Francisco is going to make up for what others refuse to do.  The proposal reads:

“While neither San Francisco, nor California, formally adopted the institution of chattel slavery, the tenets of segregation, white supremacy and systematic repression and exclusion of Black people were codified through legal and extralegal actions, social codes, and judicial enforcement. A lump sum payment would compensate the affected population for the decades of harms that they have experienced, and will redress the economic and opportunity losses that Black San Franciscans have endured, collectively, as the result of both intentional decisions and unintended harms perpetuated by City policy.”

Reparations in debt forgiveness

They’ll forgive that debt too because it might cost more.   “Black households are more likely to hold costlier, riskier debt, and are more likely to have outstanding student loan debt.”

Reparations include supplements.  “Racial disparities across all metrics have led to a significant racial wealth gap in the City of San Francisco.  By elevating income to match AMI, Black people can better afford housing and achieve a better quality of life.”

But it’s not enough

San Francisco Council President Shamann Walton said more is needed for reparations.  He spoke to the National Review.

“In San Francisco, black families were not allowed to be taught but we still had to pay taxes for the education of white children. I would say that black neighborhoods and communities were created here in San Francisco without the benefit of representation. I would say that there were racial restrictions indoctrinated in city policy that said black people couldn’t buy or lease property.”

You might say you’ve never owned a slave, reparations don’t make sense.  Doesn’t matter.   It was transferred.  Walton explained that “wealth was transferred to generations of people who are ancestors of people who participated in slavery.”  It’s never enough.  Walton was asked to put a figure on what he thought would be enough.  He said he couldn’t do that.

“I don’t think you can put a figure to taking someone from their country, raping and pillaging their communities, not allowing them the chance to reproduce, not allowing them the chance to raise a family and grow wealth, making them work for free.  I don’t think there’s a number you can put on what that does to a specific ethnic group or a specific race over the generations to come.”
