Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom drops exciting news, Check out what The Shade Room just revealed about the issue.
The Shade room notes that ‘the conversation about Black Americans receiving reparations for slavery is not new. Now, the state of California is taking the lead in turning the conversation into action. Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom and legislative leaders have established a task force that’ll study and recommend reparations for African Americans, according to @abcnews. On Tuesday, the task force held its inaugural meeting. Nine people make up the task force and some include “descendants of slaves who are now prominent lawyers, academics and politicians.’
TSR continued and said: ‘The process will take two years to complete with the team meeting periodically until July 2023. This committee is reportedly the “first state reparations committee in the U.S.” The state legislation was written by Secretary of State Shirley Weber during her time as a state assemblywoman. The task force will focus on providing summaries on discrimination against Black people, sharing their findings with the public, calculating the reparations and putting together a public apology.’
