The San Francisco Reparations Committee proposes that each long-term black resident receive $5 million dollars in reparations. The committee claims the $5 million payment would remedy any economic and opportunity losses that black San Francisco residents have endured over the years. This seven-figure payday will be viewed as forgiveness due to the decades of "systematic repression" faced by the local Black community. Of course, there is always a hater among us. Florida Republican Rep. Byron Donalds (a brother) slammed the city of San Francisco’s new reparations proposal. Rep.Donalds said on FOX News, “San Francisco’s reparations proposal is patently unfair and nothing but a distraction to cover for the incompetence of local Democratic leadership. Rather than focusing on lowering the cost of living, a historic homelessness crisis, the opioid epidemic, or even the record levels of crime plaguing their city, San Francisco’s Democratic city leadership would rather divide their constituents further under a pretense of racial equity."
What are your thoughts? Do you think more cities should give out reparations?
