Is California Governor Gavin Newsom panicking? The Democratic governor just Wednesday signed a law with the sole purpose of focusing on reparations for the descendants of slaves. In a bold move making the state the first of its kind, “the new law mandates the formation of a nine-member task force to research the issue, with members appointed by the governor and the state legislature” reports National Review.
The nine-member task force will “be asked to make recommendations for how reparations could be provided, such as through compensation or restitution” reports the Sacramento Bee. “The task force can also make recommendations on eliminating state laws and policies that perpetuate discrimination and on issuing a formal apology ‘for the perpetration of gross human rights violations and crimes against humanity on African slaves and their descendants” the bill states.
A bizarre attempt to appease his liberal voters, Newsom’s law will “research” the issue, but does not specify any amount of restitution to be given. Newsom said of the new mandate, “Advancing this cause where it’s not just a question on a questionnaire for a candidate running for office but actually taking shape here, that’s a meaningful moment” which is nothing more than a confusing string of words.
Despite leading the way in the reparations movement, this makes California nothing more than the first state to study potential reparations. National Review explains California’s history: “California was incorporated into the U.S. as a free state in 1850. However, in 1852 the state legislature passed a law allowing white slaveowners to bring slaves to work in California, as long as they eventually returned the slaves to southern states where slavery was legal. Slavery was legally abolished throughout the U.S. with the ratification of the 13 Amendment 1865.”
The Sacramento Bee reports that the task force will be “asked to compile a report on the effects of slavery and systemic discrimination – historic and current – on Black Californians and recommend appropriate ways to educate the public of those effects.” Findings shall be delivered “no later than June 2022.”
