Racist New York Democrats Demand Reparations for Black
Residents, Say $223,000 Per Person Not Enough

California made news last week when Governor Gavin Newsom’s
reparations committee called for giving descendants of
slaves (meaning all black people in their view) $223,000
each due to “housing discrimination.” Now some Democrats
in New York want to follow California’s example.

Supporters of reparations previously pushed failed
legislation this year calling for a commission to provide
billions in reparations for black people. In the wake of
California’s actions, however, they will try again to bully
the state legislature and Governor Kathy Hochul into
approving a commission.

From The New York Post:

“We saw what happened in California. We want to pass a bill
that starts a conversation about reparations,” said
Assemblywoman Michaelle Solages (D-Nassau), chairwoman of
the New York Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic and Asian
Legislative Caucus, to The Post.

Assemblywoman Taylor Darling (D-Nassau) said it would be a
“slap in the face” if Gov. Kathy Hochul and the legislature
don’t green-light a reparations study commission.

Darling also scoffed that the $223,000 figure that
California’s task force recommended for each black
descendant there was too low.

“This country was built on the backs of enslaved people. It
has impacted everything — housing, economic development,
education,” she said.

The Gateway Pundit’s Cristina Laila pointed out in her
article on California’s reparations committee that their
proposal would cost the taxpayers an eyepopping $559
billion. The current California state budget is $308
billion.

The proposal envisioned by the New York assembly members
would far exceed this. There are approximately 3.8 million
blacks residing in the state. Should New York provide each
black individual $300,000 in slave reparations, for
example, the total cost for the taxpayers would be around
$1.14 trillion. Does this sound feasible?

Reparations are not popular with the public to begin with.
A poll released last year showed 62% of all Americans
opposed paying reparations to the descendants of slaves.
And who can blame them? Punishing today’s Americans for the
sins of their ancestors is fundamentally immoral not to
mention unconstitutional.

Another issue with reparations is not every person with
black blood descended from slaves. Donald Harris, Kamala
Harris’s father, says he is a descendant of a slave owner,
not actually slaves. Yet Harris and her family would
qualify for reparations under the proposals from California
and New York.

The California and New York proposals also seem to indicate
that all racial groups would subsidize black people rather
than just whites. While punishing white people alone is
fundamentally evil, penalizing Asians and Hispanics is even
more absurd. At last check, these groups never owned slaves
in America. Just another example of how poorly considered
these ideas are and how supporters only see dollar signs.

Reparations serve as just another example how Democrats
want to exploit racial divisions for political gain, no
matter the cost. All of them should be voted out of office.
