San Francisco Official Says $5 million in Reparations 'Not Enough' for Black Residents

A city official from San Francisco said the draft plan to pay $5 million in reparations to black residents is “not enough.

The 5 million number, which the San Francisco African American Reparations Advisory Committee said would remedy previous discrimination, is “much less than a lot of the projections that people say black people should receive for reparations here in the United States,” Supervisor Shamann Walton told National Review.

“You can Google a lot of the reparations work that has been done and look at the monetary formulas that people have put together, and most certainly, the 5 million is a very minuscule number compared to a lot of research that has been done over the past couple of decades, quite frankly,” Walton said to the outlet.

Walton, who introduced the resolution in February 2020, defended the potential payments, saying historic discrimination by the city and state has put black families at a disadvantage.

“In San Francisco, black families were not allowed to be taught, but we still had to pay taxes for the education of white children,” Walton said.

“I would say that black neighborhoods and communities were created here in San Francisco without the benefit of representation,” he added.

“I would say that there were racial restrictions indoctrinated in city policy that said black people couldn’t buy or lease property,” Walton continued.

When slavery was legal in the U.S before the ratification of the 13th Amendment, California was not a slave state.

However, critics have blasted San Francisco’s proposed reparations.

Talk show host and former California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder slammed the proposal, saying, “the extraction of money from people who were never slave owners to people who were never slaves” during an appearance on Fox News.

As The Washington Examiner noted:

The committee proposing reparations has said eligible people would have to be black adults who follow certain criteria.

Requirements include having been born in or migrated to the city between 1940 and 1996, proof of residency for 13 years, and being a descendant of a slave in the U.S. before 1865.

If you give people…any people… 5 million and a cancellation of their debts the VAST majority of them will be dead in 5 years from decadence…most of the remainder will be broke with no will to return to work.
This is a hideous idea,

That would be a violation of impairing obligations of contract, and granting of nobility.

It always rolls right back to Article 1 Section X.

Taxation without representation is the name of the game.

We will agree to reparations, if the payments are tendered in gold and silver, alongside an abolishment of the federal reserve fiat currency system.

Otherwise no deal.

Article 1 section 10.

We, the “oppressors,” have already had 7 TRILLION stolen from us under the War on Poverty and the so-called Great Society. Nothing to show for it, other than the same rate of poverty and calls for more money. It is NEVER enough.
