Reparations TF: Repeal Cali Anti-Discrimination Amendment

| May 12, 2023

California Reparations Task Force

The California Reparations Task Force is a non-regulatory state agency created in 2020 to study reparation proposals for “African American descendants of persons enslaved in the United States.” Black slaves, in not so many words.

The purpose of the Task Force is threefold- to develop the proposals, to recommend ways to educate the California public of its findings, and to recommend remedies.

U.S. Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Oakland who is cosponsoring a bill in Congress to study restitution proposals stated, “Reparations are not only morally justifiable, but they have the potential to address longstanding racial disparities and inequalities.”

The Task Force recently voted to approve a reparations model that is estimated to cost California over $800 billion, nearly 3x the state’s annual budget.

They’re just getting started.

California reparations panel calls to amend state constitution to legalize racial discrimination

Gov Gavin Newsom-backed task force recommends nixing Proposition 209, which prohibits discrimination

By Aaron Kliegman | Fox News

The California Reparations Task Force, a committee created by legislation signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom, formally recommended that the state legislature repeal a constitutional amendment that prohibits the government from discriminating against, or granting preferential treatment to, someone based on their race.

Last weekend, the task force formally approved its final recommendations to the California Legislature, which will then decide whether to implement the measures and send them to the governor’s desk to be signed into law.

Much of the public’s attention has been focused on the price tag of the committee’s proposed reparations to make amends for slavery and anti-Black racism. However, several aspects of the committee’s recommendations, which are outlined in hundreds of pages of documents, have received little attention, including a proposal to repeal Proposition 209.

California voters passed Proposition 209, now enshrined in California’s constitution, in 1996. The measure amended the California Constitution, adding a section that states in part, “The state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting.”

Even champion virtue signaler Newsome is backpedaling as fast as he can from these, ah, recommendations.

“Dealing with the legacy of slavery is about much more than cash payments.” he intoned. “Following the Task Force’s submission of its final report this summer, I look forward to a continued partnership with the legislature to advance systemic changes that ensure an inclusive and equitable future for all Californians.”

Like repealing civil rights. The proponents of these measures will be so disappointed when reality raises its ugly head. Wonder how they’ll react right before a Presidential election?

Eventually the parasite destroys the host.


Regarding the word parasite, if you change the p to a D, the a to a E, r to an M, the a to an O, the a C, the I to an R, the t to an A and the e to a T, it spells DEMOCRAT!

Coincidence?? I think not!!!

Liberals did that to CA decades ago, thus the liberal vermin migrating to and infesting other States such as OR, WA and CO!


The only way to fight past racism is to have more racism.


In order to save the Constitution we must destroy it.


Wonder if anyone has contacted the African Tribal Chieftains that enslaved their enemies for some reparations? Or, better yet…checked with said Africans about some repatriations?

300K + American Soldiers had no comment.

The same tribes in Africa are still trading in slavery. hiLIARy brought the slave trade back to Libya. She’s proud of that and the patriots she allowed to die to cover her criminal actions.

I guess I’ll make like John Kerry and go throw my great-great-great (ancestor)’s (Northern) State Civil War service medal over a fence.

I can’t wait to see the straight line correlation between people moving out of CA, and into CA, that starts to occur. I’ve got to go TDY there next week so I think I’ll treat it like a trip to the zoo and collect pics of all the wild crap I see.


California — what a shithole.


Worse then a shithole…I live in this drug addict, crap filled, syringe and ceack vile littered, homeless, can’t go anywhere without a fucking gun fruit and nut filled outhouse. In the last year I left my house four times….
My groceries are delivered and I shop online…


Might want to go somewhere else. Left your house 4 times over the past year? Man, that is NO way to live.


California was never a slave state. Well, not black slaves. Their slaves were Irish and Chinese.


That’s racist. I’m not sure how, but I’m sure it is.


So are they going to establish a task force to discuss reparations to the Irish and Chinese? Nah; that’s racist.

Was going to mention ca. not being a slave state state until I read your comment. I didn’t know that the Irish and Chinese were slaves, but I know that they were the ones that laid the track down for the trans continental railroad. I do apologize for typing in the word trans. Hell no, I won’t apologize, the keys on the keyboard did it like someone blaming the gun instead of the A-Hole who pulled the trigger.


You mean not yet a slave state, not until they get rid of that pesky civil rights amendment. Then it will be game on.


Well, them black folk are gonna be in for a rude awakening with all of this silliness at the border. Those Hispanics coming across ain’t got no love for black folk and they’ll soon be longing for the days of the white liberals.


California is fighting to return to “separate but equal”, “Whites only” drinking fountains, and “negroes to the back of the bus”. How enlightened and progressive.


Nah, they’ll segregate white folks with white folks, black folks with black folks. White folks’ll be happier living with white folks, working with white folks…up on the rez. (H/t to Dick Gregory)


OK, since you put it like that, it’s so much better!


Pretty sure they’re aiming for the exact opposite of that SFC.. or at least a reversal of the races..

President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH Neande

Thinking the same.
Whites will be at the back of the bus.
Whites will be served only at the back behind the restaurant.

You mean like how such hallowed places of learning like “Hahvahd” (*OOPS!*, Harvard) now do black-only Commencements?


Anything less than $3 trillion per black resident of California is an insult.


I support California and their dogged, determined March in to giving up all of their freedoms and liberties. To follow the Therom that everyone gets the government that they deserve.


I’ll agree as long as anyone voting for that crap is NOT allowed into any other state to repeat the insanity


I was ready to let California leave the union back when Trump got elected. They had a sudden loss of interest in it when everybody agreed with them.


California sucks. Let ‘em sink into the Pacific for all the fucks I have to give.

“Hurrrrr SeVeNtH LaRgEsT EcOnOmY in tHe WuRLd….” who cares..?

Enjoy your rolling brownouts, high crime and taxes along with doling out reparations payments. Proggie suckers.


Kinda seems like Zorin had it right.. maybe Bond shouldn’t have foiled his plan…


“I ask that every colored man in the North who has a vote to cast would cast that vote for the regular Republican Party and thus bury the Democratic Party so deep that there will not be seen even a bubble coming from the spot where the burial took place.”

“I never lose sight of the fact that had it not been for the Republican Party, I never would have been an office-holder of any kind—from 1862 to the present.”

Robert Small, former slave and later politician from South Carolina (quoted in 1912.) His escape with family and other slaves to freedom aboard the CSS Planter is an amazing read.

Note: Not a hint of a desire for monetary reparations of any kind. Even fifty years after the war. Today? These fucking clowns are just grifting. But we all knew that already… even they know it.


Someone did the math, and every non-Black resident of CA would have to pay $26,000 to fund the recommended payments.


Welp…glad I never took the job offer I was given to work in California back in 2000. It hadn’t gone completely crazy, but it was expensive to live there and the writing was on the wall. I think the last time I was in California was early 2007.


Shittttt… hey Commissar, do you even have that much to give? Willing to pay with a smile? Are you writing up IOUs?

Answer to alll: No.


I will take advantage of this… I identify as a 300 pount black woman name Jemimah!

10 X AS MANY SLAVES WENT TO SOUTH AMERICA. How come their descendants don’t constantly bitch about things that never happened to them. Cali wasn’t even a slave state. Grifters and really stupid people support this.

tom reynolds

I forgot about the Irish and Chinese slaves. No black ones though. TY Flagwaver.


The Spaniards in the Caribbean replaced all the native labor with Black slaves. Indeed, in the period of 1600 through 1900, Negroes made up the majority of the population. Of course, on the island of Dominica, almost all of the Caucasian population was annihilated in the slave revolts.

Not sure how it works in PDRC, but in pretty much the rest of America this is how it works for such things:

  1. California was never a slave state, so no standing there for blacks to get any sort of compensation from the state.
  2. To rate compensation in civil matters, one must demonstrate actual causal harm, i.e. they must show how THEY were personally harmed by slavery. Not their great great grandpappy, or great great great aunt Umfoofoo. Additionally, it can clearly be proven that unless they came originally from Kenya, probably the only stable country in Africa, their lives would have been better if they had been allowed to stay in Africa. From the five African countries I have had the severe displeasure of going to, that is NOT the case.
