“Wholesale redistribution of wealth has always been the central goal of the egalitarian [sic] left [sic], and the moral panic over race in the aftermath of George Floyd’s 2020 death provided a wedge to open the door at last: racial reparations. But it is likely a wedge that will split apart the Democratic Party. California’s state government set up a task force to study reparations, and its first report called for a long menu of remedial measures to help blacks. While the group was notably silent on a dollar amount, advocates in public hearings demanded direct payments to all California blacks ranging from $350,000 to $800,000 …. Not to be outdone, San Francisco’s own African American Reparations Advisory Committee was less bashful about an explicit cash demand, issuing a report calling for a one-time, lump-sum payment of $5 million for each black person.” (01/17/23)
