California introduces first-in-nation slavery reparations package​

California state lawmakers introduced a slate of reparations bills on Wednesday, including a proposal to restore property taken by “race-based” cases of eminent domain and a potentially unconstitutional measure to provide state funding for “specific groups.”

The package marks a first-in-the-nation effort to give restitution to Black Americans who have been harmed by centuries of racist policies and practices. California’s legislative push is the culmination of years of research and debate, including 111-pages of recommendations issued last year by a task force.

Not included is any type of financial compensation to descendants of Black slaves, a polarizing proposal that has received a cool response from many state Democrats, including Gov. Gavin Newsom.

“While many only associate direct cash payments with reparations, the true meaning of the word, to repair, involves much more,” Assemblymember Lori Wilson, chair of the caucus, said in a statement. “We need a comprehensive approach to dismantling the legacy of slavery and systemic racism.”

Sure there is .. don't live in California; Regardless, how is California going to pay for it? What problem does it solve? Does it mean blacks in California can't bitch about slavery anymore (even though there are no slaves alive today, and California didn't legalize slavery)?

Okay but assuming this bill becomes law, "Not included is any type of financial compensation to descendants of Black slaves, a polarizing proposal that has received a cool response from many state Democrats, including Gov. Gavin Newsom." suggest maybe they aren't really doing reparations so much as redecorating the shop window.

I gett tired of these kinds of comments from whites in this forum.

More than fifty billion dollars (based on its value in 1930) was spent on The New Deal and Servicemen’s Readjustment Act. That amount is the equivalent to just over 1 trillion dollars today. Both programs are credited with providing a significant boost to wealth accumulation in America. These policies created the modern day white miiddle class. Both policies excluded vast numbers of blacks who worked and paid taxes.

Federal housing policies kept blacks segregated in poorly builtor maintained property using tax dollars working blacks paid. Education paid for by tax dollars blacks pay into the system, continues underfunding schools in black neighborhoods. Blacks pay taxes to fund law enforcement who kill blacks at three times our population, even as whites are more than double the arrests. Tax money working blacks pay into the system allocated for social services or community development are not equally invested in organizations, services, or policies that would increase positive outcomes in black communities. I have seen this personally.

So it gets extremely irritating to read snark coming from whites when reparations are the subject.. Especially those who are moderators because your behavior enables trolling.

Any reparations would involve more than cutting checks.

Well, let's hope this crap dies in legislatures or we will have race war.
This is beyond ridiculous.

Since they will be addressing things that happened after slavery, your post makes no sense.

Why would there be a race war over this when other racial groups have received reparations for government harm?

Dude. We are against it. Get used to it. We don't live in left coast California. And that is on purpose.

Because it's nuts. No victims of slavery are alive.
My ancestors were feed two years before the blacks here.

Get over it like my family lineage did.

Ping me when the first checks go out.
Until then, I'll be here, pointing and laughing at you. Again.
 
If someone was wronged by the Sovereign because of their race, I say, Go for it! This is not "reparations," it is justice.

Reparations for slavery? Good luck with that. Reparations for racism? Sure. Prove that you were wronged, prove the damages, prove that it was due to your race. Fine.
 
Any reparations would involve more than cutting checks.
Well this one doesn't seem to involve cutting any checks. I am not sure you really see the problem with this proposal but whatever. Enjoy your 40 acres and a mule out in the middle of death valley or wherever they move you to.

What about those wronged because of their class? Why only race?
Idiots.
