CA AB3121 Reparations Task Force Released Reparations Recommendations. Some Ask do They Even Make Sense?

The taskforce recommends up to $1.2 million for a 71 year old Black person in California.

*The California Reparations Task Force released their recommendation and according to the NY Times, it calls for billions of dollars. The problem is California is 22.5 billion dollars in deficit. Leaving the question, “What is the end result of the panel’s work?”

“One such estimate laid out in the report determined that to address the harms from redlining by banks, which disqualified people in Black neighborhoods from taking out mortgages and owning homes, eligible Black Californians should receive up to $148,099. That estimate is based on a figure of $3,366 for each year they lived in California from the early 1930s to the late 1970s, when federal

To address the impact of over-policing and mass incarceration, the report estimates, each eligible person would receive $115,260, or about $2,352 for each year of residency in California from 1971 to 2020, during the decades-long war on drugs.” New York Times

Several activists have been critical of the bill already. One of which Attorney Antonio Moore testified as a lead expert for the bill prior to the above recommendations or the Task Force members being selected. Moore stated this should have always focused on the federal government as he intended. Not state outlays from California. He also alludes to the fact that a million dollar number per person in a state with a multi-billion dollar deficit only furthers the problems with the panel’s recommendation. Creating mass confusion within the media on the topic of reparations being lineal. And he also states the Task Force simply saying it’s up to the legislator now isn’t the answer to fix it.

On his Twitter account, Moore stated, They have wasted a reparative moment that could have been used to pressure the federal government & @potus to instead make a nonsensical recommendation to a state in California that is in deficit.”

Nonprofit ADOS (American Descendants of Slavery) organization President Yvette Carnell was critical as well and posted a picture and a video clip including contentious moments from inside the AB3121 hearing.

She followed by stating, “You have to be able to do activism and create a groundswell of energy. The room has to be full on the topic of reparations to show mass support by Black America. This room was not.”

We will continue to monitor #AB3121 and see what comes of the recommendations. Next, it will go to the California legislative body and Governor Newsom. But what that all means is still largely unclear.
