A commission to consider reparations to address the effects of slavery will proceed in New York under a bill passed Thursday by the state Legislature.
“We want to make sure we are looking at slavery and its legacies,” said state Assemblywoman Michaelle Solages before the floor debate, AP reports.
“This is about beginning the process of healing our communities. There still is generational trauma that people are experiencing. This is just one step forward.”

One state I’ll never move back to.
And it will go never go away because every generation will experience it.
I also see NY learned nothing from watching CA go through this mess.
The reparations grab aimed at Whites seems an awful lot like the belief in blood guilt.
Was there slavery in New York, Illinois or California? (I didn’t do so well in history).
There is no generational trauma. If people want to live in the past, it’s their problem.
I don’t believe it was ever legal in CA. As for NY, I think they followed PA’s lead and phased it out over a short period of time once the Constitution was ratified. The only northeast state to immediately ban it upon ratification of the Constitution was MA.
New York’s long history as a slave state, and the untold wealth they derived from their cotton crops is now coming back to bite them in the ass.
NY...until 1827. People were still coming to my area in upstate as early as 1815 Upstate from Massachusetts which was a free state.
Do you really think this is going to “heal your communities”??? I think not. signed a non-white taxpayer.
We could give the race baiters and their acolytes pushing this a billon dollars each, but it would never be enough.
They would follow up with demands for ten billion dollars each.
On the upside, given the way inflation is going, we could proceed with giving them a billion dollars each, having them legally bound to never again accept government handouts, make race baiting commentary, or ever pursue any racially based charges ever again.
When the Leftist-caused inflation will get you a loaf of bread for a billion dollars, that seems like a pretty good deal.
Nothing but a pols getting their friends a nice paying gig for a short time to be on said commission.
“...healing our communities....”
That is absolutely crazy!!! They are doing everything in their power to cause division and hate.
Flippin idiots giving reparations to societal cripples created by the destruction of the black family in 1964 by LBJ. One simple democrat program destroyed the black family giving birth to two generations of feral dickweeds whose numbers in jail exceed those in college.
Its this fertile soil which gave birth and patented the Marxist black lives matter, a terrorist organization. This same 18 percent is responsible for over 70‰ of American homicides... Way up from 1964 values.
So as an overview, they’ve been receiving cash and opportunity to their demise since 1964, and now they want reparations for the last 50 years of failed Democrat policy?
See the post/video earlier this morning on South Africa being a failed state.
We get reparations passed and we will be well on our way in the same direction.
We have been paying reparations since Johnson and his great society.
Will whites who self-identify as blacks get reparations too?
The goal is not billions, or trillions, of dollars.
The goal is to establish the debt, as a principle of law, with an initial payment of $1.
Once the laws are changed to say that all white people owe all black people money, then politics devolves into an annual debate of “how much, and how fast?”
