An activist and political candidate warned a California state committee on reparations for slavery this week that there will be a “serious backlash” unless the state agrees to pay $800,000 to every eligible recipient.
Deon D. Jenkins, a self-described “grassroots hip hop organizer for reparations,” testified at a hearing in Oakland (via the UK Daily Mail) that $800,000 was the appropriate amount, given the average home price in the state.
He then warned that unless the panel complied with his recommendations, there would be repercussions.

Why just $800,000?
Time to start popping some popcorn.
If they want reparations so bad, then they should just go over to Africa and the Middle East and ask the locals for reparations, on account of it was black Africans and Arabs who engaged in the transatlantic slave trade.
Why not make it a subscription model, say 800,000 a year for the rest of their lives.
you mean blacklash.
Just give it to them so they can blow it all on useless garbage and get back to being poor and oppressed
There will be serious repercussions if anyone receives ANY reparations.
This will be fun to see the Hispanic reaction to this demand.
The best part is the CA a-holes don’t realize it is only the 1st payment of never ending payments.
The shakedown artists from the race of professional victims are becoming more brazen. It won’t be long if this is given that they will want concentration camps and ovens for whites.
I’m going to move to Calif and set up a Bling/MD2020 business. This is a great opportunity.
If even a tiny fraction of that figure is paid out then we’d see a backlash alright, but of quite a different sort. Racial animus towards blacks would go to an all-time high. Which of course is precisely what Democrats want.
Maybe if they gave a taste to the descendants of civil war veterans who died in the cause (in large part) of ending slavery. Also, a share to the GOP who thwarted many a democrat politician’s efforts to violate the rights of slave descendants.
Just pay them off using those $1 million Obama bills that have been floating around for several years…
“Why just $800,000?”
You don’t seriously think that’d be the end of it do you?
This is nothing less than straight up extortion.......never ending might I add.
And it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if the whole thing is the democrats idea on order to facilitate a kickback......after all, at the end of the day all it is, is another way to fleece taxpayers.
“It’s such a nice state you have here. Sure would be a shame if anything were to happen to it.”
It’s not extortion when they do it.
As I recall it was only a few years ago that CA issued IOU’s for tax refunds?
Might have been some other expense, I am not certain.
In any case, they are expecting another large budget shortfall this coming year.
So maybe they will just issue more scrip that cannot be redeemed.
“Yes, we paid the reparations, not our problem the check bounced”.
