San Francisco Board Voices Support for $5M Reparations Payouts

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has voiced support for massive slavery reparations payouts.

Among the recommendations are $5 million payouts per person and virtually-free homes.

Some of the recommendations include payments of $5 million to every eligible black adult, the elimination of personal debt and tax burdens, guaranteed annual incomes of at least $97,000 for 250 years, and homes in San Francisco for just $1 a family.

Board President Shamann Walton said: “If you look at the draft report, you’ll see so many examples of how black folks were done wrong here in San Francisco, and all of that can really be traced back to the negative effects of slavery.”

Sgt. Yulanda Williams, the president of the police association Officers for Justice, said: “My dad always taught me never to beg.

“And I am not begging you today.

“It is time for you to do the right thing and provide us with reparations: make us whole.”

Tinisch Hollins, the vice-chair of the African American Reparations Advisory Committee, said:

“I don’t need to impress upon you the fact that we are setting a national precedent here in San Francisco.

“What we are asking for and what we’re demanding for is a real commitment to what we need to move things forward.”

This is who qualifies for reparations under the AARC plan:

An individual who has identified as “black/African American” on public documents for at least 10 years and is 18 years or older.
