San Francisco Leftist Committee Demands Shocking Multi-Million Dollar Reparation For Black Residents

Jan 20, 2023 | Political News

A committee to study the redistribution of taxpayer wealth to every black resident of San Francisco as ‘reparations' has concluded that each should receive $5 million. This decision comes despite the historical fact that chattel slavery was never legal in California after it joined the United States in 1850.

While slaves were brought in during the territorial era of California by southern settlers and their bondage persisted illegally after admission in 1850 for several years, the practice of black slavery was all but eradicated by the end of the Civil War and the state firmly found itself pro-Union and anti-slavery.

In 2020 though, in the throes of national upheaval and outcry following the death of George Floyd and the spawn of the Black Lives Matter Riots, a knee-jerk reaction was triggered in many leftist city and state governments to address the perceived system of “systemic racism.” This of course deliberately embraced the socialism at the heart of BLM as described by prominent leader Patrice Cullours when she said she and her cohorts were “trained Marxists” in an interview with The Real News Network.

This led to two things prominently entering the political discussion, defunding police forces nationwide and of course “reparations,” a fringe notion proffered by racial identarian groups for decades.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the Board of Supervisors committee, also known as the AARAC or African American Reparations Advisory Committee came to the following determination.

“AARAC calls for one-time, lump-sum reparations payments of $5 million to each eligible recipient. The amount could cover the ‘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 draft states.”

The local outlet added, “To qualify for the payments, residents must be 18 at the time the committee’s proposal is enacted, and have identified as Black or African American on public documents for at least 10 years. They may also have to prove they were born in the city between 1940 and 1996, have resided in San Francisco for at least 13 years, and be someone, or the direct descendant of someone, incarcerated during the war on drugs.”


According to the U.S. Census of 2020, the Non-Hispanic Black voting-aged population of San Francisco is estimated at 43,450. This would bring the total tab to about $217.25 billion for a city with a total budget of approximately $14 billion.

Breitbart reports that the city is also looking at a budget crunch that could see the firing of many municipal employees as the city faces a $300 million budget shortfall.

The California state legislature established its own reparations commission which is due to release a report later this year and has proposed a more modest figure of $233,000 to be paid out only to descendants of black slaves. In addition, it recommends the establishment of black-only schools, according to the outlet.
