Slavery Reparations Approved For Black Americans In California, Not Black Immigrants

A California “task force” for slavery reparations announced that only black Americans will receive reparations from the state, not any black immigrants. Those who receive reparations will have to trace their lineage back to the era of slavery. There are still quite a few questions unanswered. It is not quite clear what reparations will look like specifically. Land, cash payments, apology, tax credits, and other things appear to all be on the table. It is also not clear if there will be a DNA percentage requirement to receive reparations. There are plenty of people who do not look black at all that have black ancestry and can prove it. The funding source for all of this is also up in the air.
