San Francisco Reparations

Supervisor Shamann Walton speaks Tuesday during a special Board of Supervisors hearing about reparations in San Francisco. Supervisors discussed a draft reparations proposal that includes a $5 million lump-sum payment for every eligible Black person.

SAN FRANCISCO — Payments of $5 million to every eligible Black adult, the elimination of personal debt and tax burdens, guaranteed annual incomes of at least $97,000 for 250 years and homes in San Francisco for just $1 a family.

These were some of the more than 100 recommendations made by a city-appointed reparations committee tasked with the thorny question of how to atone for centuries of slavery and systemic racism. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors hearing the report for the first time Tuesday voiced enthusiastic support for the ideas listed, with some saying money should not stop the city from doing the right thing.

Also what an insult...Kinda like some one saying you are too stupid to succeed in life by your own means..or we shouldn't be asking for ID when you vote... because you are too stupid to have an ID. Anyone requesting reparations is a LAZY Beggar.

Parasites can KMA Lets pay reparations to the American Indians (land), The Chinese (railroads), why should the blacks "cut the line".. also the ships that boarded the slave ships to free the slaves lets give them Riparations. Lets pay the crews (ancestors) of those ships ""first""......also "all" the Union Soldiers (ancestors) that died to free the slaves...Reparations is just another political ploy by Human Trash for buying votes...Democrats are Losers, Biden is a Pedophile and a Rat Brained Parasite...They have to play this B.S. game....Parasites and Pedophiles thats all thats left of the Democrat Party. And when the Trash Drops and goes Hot...Lets take a hard look at the Scumbag Politicians children...and they have the answers.
