Reparations Reply

A one-time payment of $5 million to each eligible Black resident is among recommendations unanimously accepted by San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors as part of a draft plan by a panel proposing reparations.

I am a 415 native, but even by San Francisco standards, this is beyond stupid. I look forward to giving a “thumbs down” to this pathetic gesture. Yes, a gesture. What about Asian Americans, women or Hispanics, as well as the myriad of other groups in San Francisco? It appears that the city is going to have a shortfall this coming fiscal year. So, how is the city actually going to make this gesture (payout)?

I suspect that the city will have to go to the state and request funds to do this. How is Gov. Gavin Newsom going to look declining this grotesque reparation? Will Sonoma County gleefully chip in to make San Francisco feel better? Will California?
