Under a bill signed by Governor Gavin Newsom in 2020, California
is looking into possible ways to provide restitution to Black
Americans who experienced the generational effects of
slavery—and the state’s reparations plan might potentially
benefit White-identifying individuals, some analysts have said.

A nine-member Reparations Task Force was deployed to travel
across the state and develop reparation recommendations and
propose solutions to its findings, which take into account the
harms that Black people suffered.

In a March 2022 report, the task force said that those eligible
for reparations should be descendants of enslaved African
Americans or of a “free Black person living in the United States
prior to the end of the 19th century.”

In its interim report released in June, the task force was able
to determine 12 areas of harm “identified as the lingering
effects of slavery,” said task-force member Jovan Scott Lewis, a
professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and a
geographer who researches reparations.

Those areas are enslavement, racial terror, political
disenfranchisement, housing segregation, separate and unequal
education, racism in environment and infrastructure,
pathologizing the Black family, control over creative cultural
and intellectual life, stolen labor and hindered opportunity, an
unjust legal system, mental and physical harm and neglect, and
the wealth gap.

Bruce’s Beach to the descendants of a Black family who had the
land stripped from them nearly a century ago on July 20 in
Manhattan Beach, California. The state has taken on a mission to
provide restitution to Black Americans who have experienced
generational effects of slavery as part of a wide-scale racial
justice effort following the death of George Floyd, but some
experts are now concerned that the state’s reparations plan
might potentially benefit White identifying individuals.PHOTO BY
Lewis said that the task force was able to identify five key
areas that could be supported by some form of compensatory
framework because those were the ones that were currently backed
by data from the economics team.

The five areas identified by the team are housing
discrimination, mass incarceration, unjust property seizures,
devaluation of Black businesses and health care. Those issues
factor into determining the reparations.

Based on housing discrimination alone that occurred between 1933
and 1977, as much as $569 billion in reparations could need to
be paid to African Americans in California–amounting to $223,000
per person.

Concerns About The Current Eligibility Criteria
Some experts are concerned that the current language of the
eligibility criteria might open the door for individuals
identifying as White to possibly receive reparations money if
they prove descendance and meet the eligibility criteria.

William Darity, a professor of Public Policy, African and
African American Studies at Duke University, told Newsweek that
“the way in which the language of the eligibility requirements
is worded, it may open the door to that possibility.”

“There’s always a problem if the proposal is designed or written
in such a way that individuals who are currently living as White
who may have ancestors in those two categories would be eligible
for black reparations. So that is a potential problem,” Darity

He explained that if this is the complete language of the
eligibility criteria, it is possible that an individual who is
not living as a Black person in the United States could claim
