San Francisco’s woke Board of Supervisors is strongly considering a draft proposal to gift black people in the uber-liberal city $5,000,000 as part of a reparations package.
Additionally, black people in the city could be entitled to homes, have all debts and tax burdens forgiven and receive a guaranteed income of at least $97,000 per year as part of the package.
The outrageous proposals were made by the city’s “African American Reparations Advisory Committee” as they deliberated various ways to atone for decades of slavery — never mind the fact slavery never existed in California.
“And the San Francisco Board of Supervisors hearing the report for the first time Tuesday voiced enthusiastic support for the ideas listed, with some saying money should not stop the city from doing the right thing,” the Associated Press reported.
The current proposal would cost non-black families “at least $600,000” according to numbers by the Stanford University’s Hoover Institution.
The AP reports “Fewer than 50,000 Black people still live in the city, and it’s not clear how many would be eligible,” but admits critics are worried the massive payout would exacerbate the city’s already “deep deficit,” which is projected to reach $728 million over the next two fiscal years.
Hoover Institution senior fellow Lee Ohanian said the plan could bankrupt the city.
“Many African Americans living in San Francisco face significant economic challenges,” Ohanian said. “But implementing the Reparations Committee’s recommendations is not the solution to these problems. Rather, it is a proposal that would result in massive business and household relocations, ultimately bankrupting the city.”
Meanwhile, reparations committee vice chair Tinisch Hollins said the package was necessary in order to set a precedent for the nation.
