Whether you believe in the movement or not, Black Lives Matter has opened the flood gates and ushered in the “redpilled” America we are living in today. As the protests continues throughout the country, Leaders have had to reassess and review systemic practices of racism that have been prevalent for many years. California has taken a crucial first step.
What does that mean exactly?
A bill entitled the “B-3121 Task Force to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans” was created to study how reparations could be implemented statewide passed the California Assembly this week as Black Lives Matter protests across the U.S. force leaders to reckon with the country’s history of racism.
The Bill states the following:
As a result of the historic and continued discrimination, African Americans continue to suffer debilitating economic, educational, and health hardships,…
- An eight-member task force to study how reparations could be awarded and who would be eligible for them in an effort to address the wrongs of slavery in the U.S.
- The bill still has to pass the State Senate and be signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom.
- If the bill becomes law, California would be the first state to create an official task force studying the issue.
What has this done?
Well it opens the door for other states to create the same, it allows the country to review institutionalized racism as well as classism
Any step in the right direction is a step. We must as a nation, open the door to the hard conversations that we were afraid to have. Ask the questions that we didn’t want the answers to and allow each American to flourish.
