‘We’re Not Asking, We’re Telling You’: Black Activist Demands $350,000 For Each Black CA Resident | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A black activist appearing before California's first reparations task force meeting insisted that every black person in the state receive $350,000 and black-owned businesses should receive $250,000.

    Max Fennell, the first black professional tri-athlete, spoke in Oakland, the birthplace of the Black Panthers.

    "It's a debt that's owed, we worked for free," he demanded while speaking at Oakland's city hall. "We're not asking, we're telling you."

    "The tangibles of what I'm asking for is $350,000 per black American in California that's tangible, small business grant $250,000, and land 15-20 acres," he added.

    The task force is considering five areas in which it claims black Americans have been harmed: the government taking property, the supposed devaluation of businesses owned by blacks, alleged mass incarceration, health, and housing issues. Its recommendations to the California Legislature must be delivered by July 1.

    "It is important to get this right because we are setting the precedent for other states and localities, and also for the federal government as well," Kamilah V. Moore, the chair of the committee, said Wednesday.

    In September 2020, California Democrat governor Gavin Newsom signed a first-in-the-nation law to create a state-based task force to make recommendations on slavery reparations to the black community.

    "As a nation, we can only truly thrive when every one of us has the opportunity to thrive," Newsom stated. "Our painful history of slavery has evolved into structural racism and bias built into and permeating throughout our democratic and economic institutions. ... While there is still so much work to do to unravel this legacy, these pieces of legislation are important steps in the right direction to building a more inclusive and equitable future for all."

    Newsom signed two bills by Democrat Assemblymember Shirley Weber, who declared, "We have not come to terms with our state's ugly past that allowed slaveholding within our borders and returned escaped slaves to their masters."

    On Wednesday in Massachusetts, the Boston City Council voted to create a task force to examine the idea of reparations.

    Last year, the Evanston City Council in Illinois voted to give reparations to its black residents, allocating $400,000 to be paid out in homeownership and improvement grants up to $25,000. "The Local Reparations Restorative Housing Program ... acknowledges the harm caused to Black/African-American Evanston residents due to discriminatory housing policies and practices and inaction on the part of the City," a resolution from the council stated.

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?
