Once again, the progressive communist democrat lunatics in San Francisco are proposing to give away the taxpayer’s hard-earned money to purchase voter support for the Democrat Party.
San Francisco Reparations Committee Recommends Paying $5 Million to Black Residents, Supplementing Income for 250 Years
A San Francisco advisory committee has recommended paying out hefty reparations to the city’s longtime black residents, including a $5 million payment per qualifying person and a supplemental income to low-income residents for 250 years. The city’s African American Reparations Advisory Committee released a draft report last month claiming that San Francisco’s “international reputation as a shining progressive gem in the west is undermined by its legacy of mistreatment, violence towards, and targeted racism against Black Americans.”
“While neither San Francisco, nor California, formally adopted the institution of chattel slavery, the values of segregation, white supremacy and systematic repression and exclusion of Black people were legally codified and enforced,” the group wrote.
As such, the committee proposed the city make a lump sum payment of $5 million to black residents who are at least 18 and have identified as black or African American on public documents for at least ten years. Residents must also meet at least two of eight other requirements. Among those requirements is that the resident is “personally, or the direct descendant of someone, incarcerated by the failed War on Drugs” or is a “Descendant of someone enslaved through US chattel slavery before 1865.”
[OCS: Beyond slavery – notice how the progressive communist democrats in California have moved the goalposts beyond slavery – and introduced a new eligibility requirement—someone who is personally or a direct descendant of someone incarcerated by the failed War on Drugs. They seem to disregard that a high proportion of those incarcerated for drugs are likely to have been drug dealers that may have been responsible for the death, suffering, and medical costs of treating their victims. What about reparations for their victims? ]
“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 committee said. The group also suggested that the city supplement lower-income recipients’ incomes to meet the Area Median Income (AMI) of about $97,000, for at least 250 years.
The panel released a lengthy list of recommendations, another of which was to create a “a comprehensive debt forgiveness program” for black residents to cancel student loans, housing loans, and credit card debt in an effort to give “Black households an opportunity to build wealth.”
The report also suggests that the city offer financial compensation for families affected by “education harms” on black students, though it does not include specifics.
[OCS: It seems that the educational harms inflicted by the union-controlled school system should apply to everyone who suffered harm from a corrupt, ineffective school system that deliberately chose indoctrination over education.]
Other proposals include allowing black residents who are eligible for reparations to receive first choice of subsidized rental units and prioritizing “members of San Francisco’s current and past African American communities for employment opportunities, training programs, professional certification, partnerships and contracting.”
[OCS: Affirmative action on steroids! It seems they left out the Black “get out of jail” pass for any Black person who attacks their white oppressor, regardless of age.]
The report suggests the city and county of San Francisco and the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development should offer black homeowners grants for home maintenance and repair costs.
The group is set to submit its final proposal in June. <Source>
- Where is the “fairness” recommendation that only Democrats, the party of slavery, secession, segregation, the fight against civil rights, and their affiliated unions and institutions be responsible for paying any reparations?
- What penalty should be applied to Black slaveholders and slave masters?
- Is San Francisco planning to contract the genealogical research necessary to verify the claim status to the Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or a Communist Chinese DNA processor?
- What happens after the cradle-to-grave welfare system fails and turns the City of San Francisco into a ghost town?
- How long before the whole world demands reparations attributable to American colonialism?
- Will Blacks be designated as super-citizens?
- How is this scheme constitutional?
- Are any Whites, Hispanics, Asians, or conservative Republicans on the Committee?
The inclusive non-racially biased reparations committee…

What next? Reparations for the descendants of those who were denied entry into the U.S. or deported? What about Mexican farmworkers? Or Asian railroad workers?
It appears that certain San Franciscans who support this nonsense have been so deeply compromised by smelling shit on their streets every day that they cannot even recognize bullshit when they see or smell it.
We are so screwed when radical progressive communist democrats assume political power and are not individually held responsible for their dystopian and un-American behavior.
