The governor of California set up a commission to see what reparations if any are due to blacks. Blacks the Democrats held in Slavery. Not the ones you find today that the left enslaves. Just look at Sacramento as an example. The Blacks held as slaves by the left from the 1600's to the end of the Civil War.
Forget the fact. The fact that California ( unlike today ) back then was under Mexico and when it became part of the USA was a free state. There was no slavery then. But for some reason the Progressives are feeling guilty. We have this from the NYT.
|California is one step closer to determining who could receive reparations from the state.|
|In a closely watched decision, the state’s reparations task force voted Tuesday night to move forward with compensation for African-American descendants of enslaved people and descendants of freed Black people living in the United States before the 19th century.|
|This is a big deal, as California’s reparations effort is the first of its scale and is likely to serve as a model for the rest of the nation. Not to mention that Tuesday’s decision was highly contentious.|
|The vote, 5-4, came after weeks of debate about whether reparations should be for all 2.6 million Black Californians or limited to those who can trace their lineage to enslaved people. The panel ultimately decided to focus on those most hurt by slavery, instead of more broadly addressing the effects of racism directed at Black people.|
