Blacks To Be Handed $5 million?!?

Black residents of San Francisco who are eligible for “reparations” should receive $5 million each, according to the city’s legislature, the Board of Supervisors.

On Tuesday, Fox News reported that the San Francisco Board of Supervisors held official discussions on reparations and expressed “unanimous support.”

If each of the city’s some 50,000 black residents is granted $5 million in “reparations,” that would amount to $250 billion in total.

The report notes the 11 members of the San Francisco legislature, who are all Democrats, still declared “unanimous” support for reparations even after the Hoover Institution at Stanford University estimated that the $5 million-per-person reparations proposal would cost $600,0000 for each non-black family in the city.

The board members also showed interest in alternative “forms of reparations” such as a “guaranteed annual income of $97,000 for [the next] 250 years” or being able to buy a home “for just $1 a family.”

Even though San Francisco technically never had slavery, some city supervisors declared that the “journey” toward justice didn’t boil down to exact calculations.

“There wasn’t a math formula,” San Francisco’s chair of the African American Reparations Advisory Committee, Eric McDonnell, told The Washington Post.

“It was a journey for the committee towards what could represent a significant enough investment in families to put them on this path to economic well-being, growth and vitality that chattel slavery and all the policies that flowed from it destroyed,” he added.

The draft reparations plan admitted that there was never formal slavery in California, but there was “white supremacy” and other forms of “oppression.”

“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,” the draft proposal said.

“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,” the proposal argued.

The chairman of the San Francisco Republican Party, John Dennis, has slammed the proposal as “unserious.”

“This conversation we’re having in San Francisco is completely unserious,” Dennis said.

“They just threw a number up, there’s no analysis. It seems ridiculous, and it also seems that this is the one city where it could possibly pass,” he added.

However, members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors defended the plan.

“Those of my constituents who lost their minds about this proposal, it’s not something we’re doing or we would do for other people. It’s something we would do for our future, for everybody’s collective future,” Supervisor Rafael Mandelman said.
