“California is the first state in the nation to consider reparations for those harmed by slavery and racial discrimination. Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill on Wednesday that will create a task force to study the issue. ‘After watching last night’s debate, this signing can’t come too soon,’ Newsom, a Democrat, said on a phone call announcing the decision. The legislation, Assembly Bill 3121, calls for a nine-member task force to document the historical and present effects of enslavement on African Americans and ‘recommend appropriate remedies.’ Those recommendations, including the possibility of ‘full reparations,’ will be presented in a report one year from now.”

“Wells Fargo CEO Charlie Scharf has apologized after he blamed the lack of diversity at the bank on ‘a very limited pool of Black talent to recruit from.’ In a memo to employees released by the bank, Scharf apologized for what he [says] was “an insensitive comment reflecting my own unconscious bias.’ ‘There are many talented diverse individuals working at Wells Fargo (WFC) and throughout the financial services industry and I never meant to imply otherwise,” he wrote. “It’s clear to me that, across the industry, we have not done enough to improve diversity, especially at senior leadership levels. And there is no question Wells Fargo has to make meaningful progress to increase diverse representation.’”

This is why affirmative action and quotas must be mandatory!

“The United States was ‘an accident of history,’ [Colin Woodard] said, largely because distinct cultures shared an external threat from the British. They formed the Continental Army to stage a revolution and form the Continental Congress, with delegates from thirteen colonies. Almost two hundred and fifty years later, a country six times its original size claims to be a melting pot that has produced an ‘American’ culture and a political system that vows to provide ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.’ Too often, it hasn’t.”

“President Trump on Friday made a direct appeal to Black voters with a slew of targeted policy pledges if he’s reelected in November, including making Juneteenth a federal holiday and prosecuting the Ku Klux Klan as a terrorist organization. Trump, speaking to supporters in Atlanta, unveiled what he dubbed the “Platinum Plan” for Black voters, outlining what a second term policy agenda could look like for African Americans. The plan leans heavily on economic proposals, such as tax cuts for minority-owned businesses, further focus on opportunity zones that encourage investment in low-income areas and additional money for broadband and internet access to foster job and educational opportunities.”

If Trump or Biden aren’t talking reparations, than anything else will maintain global white supremacy and the myth of white racial superiority.

“The systematic gaps that exist for Black Americans could have cost the U.S. economy $16 trillion over the past 20 years, according to a study issued by the bank Citigroup.Analyzing four key areas of economic racial gaps that exist between Black and white Americans, analysts argue that closing these gaps can add about $5 trillion to the U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) over the next five years…‘Our overarching goal for the Citi GPS series is not only to tackle the key opportunities and challenges of the 21st century, but also to address complex societal questions and to not shy away from difficult subjects,” writes Citi Vice Chairman Raymond J McGuire. “As such, we believe we have a responsibility to address current events and to frame them with an economic lens in order to highlight the real costs of longstanding discrimination against minority groups, especially against Black people and particularly in the U.S.’”

“NBA teams and owners have publicly pledged their solidarity with Black players in the fight against racism and police brutality. But the political donations of many franchise governors have overwhelmingly favored Donald Trump and the GOP.”

Further proof that these black NBA players are nothing more than million dollar slaves.

“Hunter Biden allegedly sent ‘thousands of dollars’ to people who appear to be involved in the sex industry, according to Wednesday’s report released by Senate Republicans. The report claims unspecified records show that Biden ‘has sent funds to non-resident alien women in the United States who are citizens of Russia and Ukraine and who have subsequently wired funds they have received from Hunter Biden to individuals located in Russia and Ukraine.’ ‘The records also note that some of these transactions are linked to what “appears to be an Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.”’”
