The City of San Fransisco, California has a public reparations task force called the “San Francisco African American Reparations Advisory Committee”.
The Reparations Advisory Committee is now proposing a plan in which every black resident of San Fransisco over the age of 18 would be eligible for a $5 million reparations payment.
The plan also includes a 250-year plan to pay black San Fransisco residents an additional $97,000 per year.
Under the coming proposal slated to be introduced by City Mayor London Breed and the San Fransisco Board of Supervisors in June, black residents must have lived in San Fransisco for at least 13 years, and have identified as black on public documents for at least 10 years.
The Chairman of the California Reparations Taskforce publicly stated weeks ago that Black Americans are owed at least $1 million per person. He claimed that the money would ‘boost the economy’.
A full list of the requirements to receive reparations under this absurd new program can be found below.
To understand this program, we must go back to the founding of California. Founded in 1850 just a decade before the outbreak of the Civil War, California never had legal slavery.
The ‘Compromise of 1850’ introduced California into the United States as a free state. No slaves were ever legally held within the State of California. Information about this fact can be found on the California State website.
In 1849, Californians sought statehood and, after heated debate in the U.S. Congress arising out of the slavery issue, California entered the Union as a free, nonslavery state by the Compromise of 1850.https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=23856
Will the City of San Francisco be able to afford a program of this magnitude? If just 10,000 residents within San Fransisco applied for this program, the city would have a net cost of over $50 billion.
The latest Census data shows that in 2020 there were over 44,000 Black residents in San Fransisco. If each of them signed on, the City would have a net cost of over $200 Billion.
Reports tell us that San Fransisco will only have access to around $6.3 Billion for all of 2022 and 2023.
