Gavin Newsom Refuses To Endorse Cash Reparations For Black Californians

California Governor Gavin Newsom refuses to endorse cash payment reparations for Black Californians. This news comes after a special task force in the state held meetings for months to discuss what reparations would look like. Some outlandish numbers were floated around. Cash payments as high as $1.2 million per person and a total budget of $800 billion dollars were mentioned. The outcome of the special task force’s efforts was anti-climatic at best. No political incentive exists for reparations to take place in California, a state that never had slavery and was not necessarily a haven for widespread discrimination.
