(RepulicanWire.org) – San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors voted unanimously on Tuesday to accept a draft plan from the city’s African American Reparations Advisory Committee that would pay out a one-time $5 million payment per qualifying person.

The reparations committee will submit its final proposal in June, after which the Board of Supervisors is set to meet on September 19th for its next reparations hearing.

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.

These were some of the more than 100 recommendations made by a city-appointed reparations committee tasked with the thorny question of how to atone for centuries of slavery and systemic racism. 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.

In San Francisco, Black residents once made up more than 13% of the city’s population, but more than 50 years later, they account for less than 6% of the city’s residents — and 38% of its homeless population. The Fillmore District once thrived with Black-owned night clubs and shops until government redevelopment in the 1960s forced out residents.

Fewer than 50,000 Black people still live in the city, and it’s not clear how many would be eligible. Possible criteria include having lived in the city during certain time periods and descending from someone “incarcerated for the failed War on Drugs.”

Critics say the payouts make no sense in a state and city that never enslaved Black people. Opponents generally say taxpayers who were never slave owners should not have to pay money to people who were not enslaved.

Leo Terrell has had a lot to say on the matter.

Democrats, the party that stands against racism — unless they don’t like someone, or it’s just convenient to be racist. A Texas Democrat official ha resigned one week after hurling a racist slur at black Republican Tim Scott.

Lamar County Democratic Party chair Gary O’Connor drew fire from all sides last week when he, in a now-deleted Facebook post, called Scott an “oreo,” a slur that references a black person who acts in a way people perceive as “white.”

“I had hoped that Scott might show some common sense, but it seems clear he is little more than an oreo with no real principles,”  O’Connor, who is white, said in the post.

The Republican Party has a good sense of humor, though. Texas Republican Party Chairman Allen West says he will be sending a “gift” of Oreo cookies to the Democrats until the Democrat racist resigns.

Fortunately, he won’t have to send many cookies, as a resignation has happened. “I am deeply and sincerely sorry for my inappropriate and hurtful use of racist term I used to describe Sen. Tim Scott on my personal Facebook page,” O’Connor said in a statement accompanying his resignation. “It was insensitive, and I have embarrassed myself and my party by its use.”

“As a result, I feel compelled to offer my resignation as chair of the Lamar County Democratic Party for consideration by the County Executive Committee,” he added. Previously, Democrats have labeled Scott “Uncle Tim,” a play on the slur “Uncle Tom.”

Democrats call us racists, but every single time they reveal that such allegations are simply projection.
