Whew!!! When I first saw this story, I said whoa! Are you serious? But then I saw the form of payment and then I said to myself… hmmm I don’t know yet.
So the city of Asheville’s city council voted 7-0 to give reparations to black residents. The form of payment would be better access to affordable housing, increasing minority business ownership, and more. They even want to ensure to close the gap with pay, education, and more.
I’m sitting here thinking this country was built on the backs of my ancestors. They sacrificed their lives for it. I think most deserve money. They deserve their full 40 acres and a mule. The things they are wanting to give show ALREADY BE GIVEN. That shouldn’t even be up for debate. So, while some are applauding their efforts, a lot of others would say their efforts haven’t gone far enough. Somehow, some way, money needs to be given to those that deserve it. Last I checked, that’s the entire black community as a whole needs financial reparations and it needs to start at the federal level. Drop your comments below.
