Well, I have to agree with Republican California State Rep. Tom McClintock. The California dems are batsh!t crazy. Reparations for slaves they never had?
They just have to keep finding ways to separate us by race. And what comes after reparations? Because you know if they somehow get this done, it won’t end there. However I can’t, at this time, think of anything dumber than this. I know they’ll come up with something, but I can’t imagine what it will be.

California — a state that never practiced slavery — moves forward with slavery reparations plan
California — which entered the union as a free state in 1850 — is moving forward with plans to implement slavery reparations for black Americans.
On Tuesday, a first-of-its-kind task force charged with studying the issue and developing proposals for redress convened for its inaugural meeting, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The task force is the result of a bill signed last year by Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom that required members to draft a formal apology to black Americans and come up with various financial remedies for the lingering effects of discriminatory practices in the country.
“As our country reckons with our painful legacy of racial injustice, California again is poised to lead the way towards a more equitable and inclusive future for all,” Newsom said at the meeting.
California Democratic Attorney General Rob Bonta added, “Although the horrors of slavery may have begun in the past, its harms are felt every single day by Black Americans in the present.”
