San Francisco Votes ‘Unanimously’ to Pay Every Black Resident $5 Million in Reparations

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted “unanimously” on Tuesday to move forward with a plan that would give every black resident of the city $5 million in reparations.

Although slavery never existed in San Francisco, supervisors argued that it was all part of a “journey” toward justice for African-Americans.

“There wasn’t a math formula,” San Francisco’s chair of the African American Reparations Advisory Committee, Eric McDonnell, recently told The Washington Post. “It was a journey for the committee towards what could represent a significant enough investment in families to put them on this path to economic well-being, growth and vitality that chattel slavery and all the policies that flowed from it destroyed.”

The board also agreed to explore the possibility of providing other forms of reparations to the city’s approximately 50,000 Black residents, including a guaranteed annual income of $97,000 for 250 years and offering homes to Black families for just $1.

A recent study by Stanford University’s Hoover Institution estimated the proposal would require non-Black families in the city to pay at least $600,000, while many economists believe it would effectively bankrupt the already declining city.

“Adding up the costs across these four categories yields a cost of about $200 billion, which is equivalent to a $596,000 liability on a per (non-African American) household basis,” the analysis found. “The size of this tax likely means that San Francisco businesses would be expected to pay for much of the cost of the proposal. However, businesses are becoming increasingly open to relocation, particularly since the pandemic, and this problem is particularly acute in San Francisco.”

The draft reparations plan admits that while both San Francisco and California never “formally adopted” slavery, the prevalence of “white supremacy” was sufficient justification for reparations.

“While neither San Francisco, nor California, formally adopted the institution of chattel slavery, the tenets of segregation, white supremacy and systematic repression and exclusion of black people were codified through legal and extralegal actions, social codes, and judicial enforcement,” it argued.

“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,” it continues.

Those eligible for the program must be 18 years old and have “identified” as Black or African American on public documents for at least 10 years. Applications must also have been born in San Francisco between 1940 and 1996 and have proof of residency in San Francisco for at least 13 years,” and/or a “direct descendant of someone, incarcerated by the failed War on Drugs.”

The proposal was slammed by the chair of the San Francisco Republican Party, John Dennis, who mocked the plan as “completely unserious.”

“This conversation we’re having in San Francisco is completely unserious,” he told the AP. “They just threw a number up, there’s no analysis… It seems ridiculous, and it also seems that this is the one city where it could possibly pass.”

However, Supervisor Rafael Mandelman has defended the plan, describing it as integral to the future of the city. “Those of my constituents who lost their minds about this proposal, it’s not something we’re doing or we would do for other people,” he said. “It’s something we would do for our future, for everybody’s collective future.”

    I’d like to put this ‘reparation for oppression’ HORSESHIT into perspective. Consider this:

    It has been 300 years since they were brought to this Country, (sold by their tribal elders through auction). It’s been 160 years since they were freed by a Republican President, (Abraham Lincoln). It’s been almost 60 years since they were granted complete equal rights, (Civil Rights Act of 1964). On top of that, they’ve enjoyed more “racial privileges” than any other race, including numerous “entitlements” such as FREE education, FREE housing, FREE food, FREE clothing, FREE health care, and FREE employment. (Read: If the applicant is black, the position requires no education nor experience).

    However, the institution of ‘work’ is usually never even considered, given they can exist (very comfortably) on everything which is now GIVEN to them by the wonderful ‘bleeding hearts’ of our government. Unfortunately, being given EVERYTHING needed to live isn’t enough for many blacks. Therefore, (and since they don’t have to work for a living), they have all the time in the world on their hands and commit felony crime to get whatever it is they want, (and that they don’t have). Hence: They’ll break into your grandparents’ house, beat them to death, and take everything they worked their entire lives for – just so they can have drug money for the day.

    Wonderful…

    Additionally, we now have all-inclusive black college’s, special holidays, and an entire month that pays special tribute to their race. And STILL, they have refused to assimilate into our culture/society each day. But instead, chose to continue playing the ‘victim’, (read: ‘Weez bein’ oppressed! Weez bein’ oppressed!”). Nothing seems to help these people. Why? Because although there are (literally) HUNDREDS of governmental agencies and charities attempting to help them – THEY REFUSE TO HELP THEMSELVES, thus are perpetual ‘victims’ forever – OF THEIR OWN CHOICE. They are the only culture on the planet that seems incapable of improving their quality of life. I feel sorry for the very small percentage that have assimilated into our culture successfully. These are the ‘black people’ who are my friends and neighbors. As for the rest of them, they’re just not like us and they NEVER will be. I refer to the rest of these ‘people’ as– NIGGERS.

    EXAMPLE:

    FACT: Although blacks don’t make up 13% of the entire U.S. population, (actual %age 12.74), they account (and are responsible) for (no less than) 71% of ALL crime. (Think about that for just a second). That’s taken right from the front page of the DOJ.
    Some snakes are deadly, others are harmless. In the wild, all snakes are avoided because it’s nearly impossible to differentiate between them. The same holds true with what I call – ‘the 13%’. I avoid them as much as possible because I don’t feel safe around them. If you don’t believe that’s a fair statement of assessment, consider this: The propensity towards violence that black people display is not cultural – it’s genetics. It’s in their DNA. They’re ‘wired’ like this from birth – and there is NOTHING a civilized society can do (other than w/ proper medication), to protect themselves from such individuals. It’s an inheritance from their ancestors. African tribes eternally fighting w/ each other for HUNDREDS of years w/ no governance, no civility, and no peace. Result? You can’t go anywhere, (fast-food restaurant, carnival, or to just get a free bag of chips with my 10-year-old granddaughter), without some incident ensuing if they’re present. Why is this? Because they have no ‘skin in the game’ to speak of. No self-worth nor purpose in life. Just the propensity for violence, which is triggered w/ the least resistance to anything they feel they’re ‘entitled’ to, (which is – EVERYTHING). In addition, (and compliments of our government who coddles and strokes these animals), they’re aware they will experience (almost) no negative consequences for ANYTHING they do/say which results in huge negative consequences for others. All compliments of the Democrats who break EVERYTHING they touch. So much for all their awesome programs to make things “better”.

    Over one-and-a-half centuries since emancipation, trillions of dollars of free stuff, and over half-a-century of UNCONSTITUTIONAL Affirmative Action equals the most expensive experiment in history is a complete and utter failure. No matter how long or how hard we (try to) pound the square peg into the round hole, it is NOTS going to fit. The experiment has failed…PERIOD. Apart from a small minority who have actually assimilated to a civilized culture, the majority have remained feral. It is long past time to stop fooling ourselves into thinking that all our tried and failed programs will correct this as the evidence overwhelmingly shows – it will not.
    Reparations? How about one-way airfare back to Africa. Throw in a Louis Vuitton purse, a carbon fiber spear, a chucking manual, a mud hut blueprint, and a heartfelt KICK IN THE ASS. There they can continue killing each other every day, (as they are now), and we can live in a relatively peaceful environment.
    Affirmative Action was sold as an UNCONSTITUTIONAL, ten-year diversion from our Constitution; it’s now been SIXTY years.
    WE DO NOT HAVE A RACE PROBLEM. WE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH A RACE.
    More correctly, we also have a problem with the political party enabling and promoting this Third World chaos and anarchy. Bottom line? There are truly only two things you can do w/ animals – cage ‘em or kill ‘em. DONE!
