'San Francisco proposes over 100 Reparations ideas including $5 million each for eligible Black people' - 'The Culture' with guest Michael Imhotep founder of 'The African History Network' - 3-16-23

Payments of $5 million to every eligible Black adult, the elimination of personal debt and tax burdens, guaranteed annual incomes of at least $97,000 for 250 years and homes in San Francisco for just $1 a family.  Many Reparations advocates have dismissed the the $5 million idea as 'Unrealistic' and a distraction from other realistic suggestions.

These were some of the more than 100 recommendations made by a city-appointed reparations committee tasked with the thorny question of how to atone for centuries of slavery and systemic racism. And the San Francisco Board of Supervisors hearing the report for the first time Tuesday voiced enthusiastic support for the ideas listed, with some saying money should not stop the city from doing the right thing.
