California leads the country in forcing radical left-wing insanity on its citizens.
Democrats’ one-party, authoritarian control over the state has allowed the ruling class elites to impose whatever deranged left-wing policy imaginable on the state.
And now this San Francisco Board Supervisor just made the Left’s most alarming statement about reparations yet.
San Francisco wants to pay every black citizen millions of dollars
San Francisco has been working on a reparations package for black citizens for some time now.
Over the past several months, the internet has been on fire with viral videos from the city’s Board of Supervisors meetings in which some citizens have chosen to make veiled threats over reparations.
They warned that until every black citizen is paid the reparations Democrats in the city are currently demanding, crime will continue to escalate in San Francisco.
Now, it seems like they are actually gaining traction after a recent proposal suggested paying every black citizen $5 million – each.
The Board ultimately voted unanimously for the plan, which early estimates suggest would cost all non-black families in San Francisco at least $600,000 – each.
But one of the city’s Supervisors just made a chilling comment that should leave everyone concerned.
Guaranteed income of $97,000 for 250 years
Eric McDonnell, the chair of the city’s African American Reparations Advisory Committee admitted to The Washington Post that “there wasn’t a math formula” for the historic proposal that has been floated.
“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,” McDonnell claimed.
The plan would guarantee an annual income of $97,000 to every one of the city’s 50,000 black citizens for 250 years.
Each family would also be eligible to purchase a home for “just $1.”
Some San Francisco residents claim that the plan doesn’t address reality, but that’s not stopping the left-wing radicals running the city.
Board of Supervisors recognizes that California never participated in slavery
The committee admitted in the draft proposal that “neither San Francisco, nor California, formally adopted the institution of chattel slavery, the tenets of segregation, [or] white supremacy.”
However, they argue that “systemic repression and exclusion of black people were codified through legal and extralegal actions, social codes, and judicial enforcement.”
They believe that these alternate forms of oppression justify a policy for mass reparations.
They think that “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…”
Totally “ridiculous” plan might actually pass in the city
Opponents of the plan have a lot to say about the “unanimous” support for the program.
San Francisco Republican Party Chairman John Dennis called the plan “unserious” and “ridiculous,” but warned that “this is the one city where it could possibly pass.”
He blasted the Board’s position, and their lack of “analysis” to come up with the proposal.
“They just threw a number up,” Dennis said.
San Francisco’s plan to pay out reparations to just 6% of the city’s citizens would likely sow even more division and racial tensions than ever before.
But as Supervisor Rafael Mandelman said, that it is apparently necessary for “everybody’s collective future.”
