Repairs now up to $360,000; The state never allowed slavery


California, which entered the Union as a free state in 1850, is now considering paying up to $360,000 in compensation to each eligible beneficiary, more than 50% of the amount announced as the minimum available. higher than last year.

As Breitbart News reported in December, a state committee reviewing reparations heard proposals that eligible beneficiaries — those descended from former black slaves — would be eligible for up to $233,000.

According to Bloomberg News, that amount has now risen to $360,000 per beneficiary — perhaps under pressure from grassroots efforts in cities like San Francisco, which provides $5 million per black resident.

It’s unclear where the money will come from, as the state has a budget deficit of about $25 billion this year and many cities are strapped for cash. It is also unclear why California is paying for sins it did not commit.

Some proponents of reparations argue that California is guilty despite enduring racial equality. The goal seems to be to encourage the general population to pay compensation. As Bloomberg News notes:

“If California can own up to its mistakes and turn things around, there is a way forward for states and cities across the country,” said California Secretary of State Shirley Weber, who authored the task force bill while serving in the state Assembly. . .

Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed into law a reparations committee in 2020 at the height of the Black Lives Matter movement. The committee that made the preliminary recommendations, which included separate schooling for black Californians, was not demographically representative of the country. condition and does not include a single white member.

It is due to submit its final report to the state legislature later this year.
