San Francisco Board Voices Support For $5M Reparations Payouts


The San Francisco Board of Supervisors voiced support for a massive reparations payout with some saying money should not stop the city from doing the right thing. Some of the recommendations include: payments of $5 million to every eligible Black adult, the elimination of personal debt and tax burdens, guaranteed annual incomes of at least $97,000 for 250 years and homes in San Francisco for just $1 a family.

Board President Shamann Walton said: “If you look at the draft report, you’ll see so many examples of how black folks were done wrong here in San Francisco, and all of that can really be traced back to the negative effects of slavery,’ Walton said last night. 

Sgt. Yulanda Williams, the president of the police association Officers for Justice, said: “My dad always taught me never to beg. And I am not begging you today. It is time for you to do the right thing and provide us with reparations: make us whole.”

Tinisch Hollins, vice-chair of the African American Reparations Advisory Committee, said:

“I don’t need to impress upon you the fact that we are setting a national precedent here in San Francisco.

“What we are asking for and what we’re demanding for is a real commitment to what we need to move things forward.”
