Why Not $50 Million?

More insanity from San Francisco:

A San Francisco reparations committee proposed a plan to city officials last month that would pay longtime black residents of the Northern California metropolitan city $5 million each while granting total debt forgiveness for facing decades of “systematic repression.”
The San Francisco African American Reparations Advisory Committee submitted the report to the Board of Supervisors just before the New Year, which addresses public policies created to “subjugate” black residents in the Bay Area city and includes a list of financial compensation, such as the lump-sum reparations payment of $5 million to each eligible individual.
“Centuries of harm and destruction of Black lives, Black bodies, and Black communities should be met with centuries of repair,” Eric McDonnell, committee chair, told The San Francisco Chronicle. “If you look at San Francisco, it’s very much a tale of two cities.”

Unfortunately, unlike in the Dickens novel, there will be no guillotines.

As for who qualifies for this oh-so generous handout:  well, pretty much everyone.

Such residents who qualify for the payment must meet at least two criteria from a list of requirements, which include applicants to be at least 18 years old at the time the city enacts the committee’s proposal, have identified as black or African American on public documents for at least ten years, and prove they were born in the city between 1940 and 1996.
Other requirements from the report include residents that have lived in San Francisco for at least 13 years or personally been incarcerated — or the direct descendant of someone imprisoned — during the War on Drugs, which U.S. Pres. Richard Nixon declared in 1971.

And how are they going to fund this virtue-signaling generosity?

Never an errant 12.5 Richter-scale earthquake when you need one, is there?


  1. Remember to deduct the $3tril that has been spent on negroes over the past 100 years. For now we’ll overlook the huge cost negroes have created to the country over the past 400 years. As far as I can tell there is no benefit to the existence of negroes anywhere in the world. A subspecies, best left to die out on it’s own.

  2. So, anybody wanting to invest in a combo Cadillac Dealership / Malt Liquor brewery in that area? Asking for a friend.

    1. how about a custom shop for the chrome, tinted windows and loud stereos? we’ll make that MTV show Pimp my Ride look like a windshield wiper replacement service.


  3. I can’t believe anyone stays in that fetid cess pool of villiany and scum.

    You’re right, if $5 million is good, $50 million each would be even better


  4. So, let’s assume there’s 100,000 people who qualify.

    At $5 million each, the budget just for the lump sum is $500 billion dollars.

    That’s about two years of GDP for the city of SF. So they can manage this if they confiscate 100% of the income for every man, woman, child, business, et cetera, for two years.

    Might be difficult to get that second year of income, since everyone would be dead of starvation, but…

  6. According to the last census, San Francisco has about 800K people of which roughly 55K are black. Assuming that is the the number that will qualify, the total come to $275G or about 369K per non-black person. Where is that going to come from? San Francisco has high taxes but not that high.

  7. Political theater at it’s finest by Newsom. How do you kill a popular idea / movement that is fundamentally flawed yet it would be political suicide to oppose it?

    Well, you openly embrace it and appoint a ” Blue Ribbon Committee” to work out all the details, making sure to include all the most vocal proponents of said stupid idea as possible. When the committees report is made public, it inevitably will include completely unrealistic solutions. You simply declare the plans as unworkable and outside of any budget availability.

    Presto — Item resolved until after the next election cycle without any political cost. If there is too much pushback. you simply appoint another commission.
