If you remember about 40 years ago, it was illegal to charge people more for using credit cards than those who used cash. In attempt to get around the law, businesses began offering products at a set price, then offering a discount for cash.

California politicians, being stymied in their efforts to hand out some government money as reparations, have brought the idea of discounts as a subsidy back.

It’s the white people tax.

California’s emerging reparations package includes two contentious proposals that would single out reparations-eligible black Californians for special treatment: one would order all the state’s professional licensing bodies to expedite their applications, while another would subsidize their property taxes by up to $4,000. The package would create the “California American Freedman Affairs Agency”—a permanent state bureaucracy—to decide which Californians should receive reparations benefits and to make sure they are doled out. It would be funded through a separate proposal to siphon off budget reserves specifically for reparations.

A bureaucratic agency would tax white people at a rate that is $4,000 higher than blacks, slow walk their applications for professional licenses, and take other punitive measures. Next up is sure to be a law that requires white owned businesses to display signs identifying them as such.

If it hadn’t already happened, that right there would have been enough to push us out of CA.

Re the business … Minority and woman owned small businesses already get preferential treatment at the federal level when it comes to grants etc, to the point where just about every small business is, formally, owned by women or minorities. (At least as per what I’ve read.) And wasn’t there an app that was supposed to help direct one to black-owned business already out there? Granted that wasn’t a government mandate but there’s a connection in the thought process.

    My business is set up so that my wife is the managing partner, for that exact reason. My brother owns a business, and his wife is the CEO, again for the same reason.

      Same here. My partners Hispanic mother is a stockholder and is listed as the president. Sadly it DOES help in getting some of our bids preference over others, as opposed to our actual completed projects.

      Heh…yup. I hand my wife a stack of paychecks and the occasional contract or paperwork to sign. She signs them and hands them back and I do all the grunt work. Instant benefits in the socialist republic of Washington State.

“ Next up is sure to be a law that requires white owned businesses to display signs identifying them as such.”

And it will be right next to the sign that says, “No Coloreds”. We can play the game too. This t8me it won’t be separate, but equal, but rather separate but separate.

    THAT sign will get you arrested.

    Lord of the Fleas · April 26, 2024 at 10:37 am

    That sign would have to be something like a white star. (Can’t use a yellow star – that’s been done before…)

I think the “California American Freedman Affairs Agency” is a great idea and all kinds of benefits should be paid to everyone who was once a slave and is now free.

    Skyler the Weird · April 26, 2024 at 11:28 am

    Of course if your a current slave working in the sex industry or in a sweat shop, you won’t be freed nor get reparations in California.

Skyler the Weird · April 26, 2024 at 11:23 am

We’ll be forced to wear the Bonnie Blue Flag Star on our clothing next.

If you go off a broad definition of slavery as involuntary servitude there are people in California today who count, everyone who was drafted.

Hell, I’d just start saying I’m black, if humans originated in Africa you just have to go back far enough.

It’s already too crowded here with the particle board section 8 EBT Eastern Bloc apartments, now it will be even worse with the transplants leaving the glorious peoples republic of Commiefornia.
The EBT cards go far in Red State but there aren’t any other programs.
Found a printout in the local church parking lot showing the counties with free shit and it was less than half of the state.
Earlier today they had the youth out picking up trash along the roads with John Law escort, training them to be good subjects, I guess.
Blocking the four lane highway so they could get back on the buses was a bit much and thankfully it was at lunch time and not PM rush.

I want reparations for the incredible level of social costs that blacks have imposed on our country. They are indeed the White man’s burden.

Aesop · April 27, 2024 at 10:29 am

None of which will last long enough to take effect, and probably set land speed records for fastest struck-down laws in state history. Which is saying something.

The legislature can pass laws requiring the tide not to come in, but no one pays much attention, because they’re 95% barking moonbats, and 84% of them are certifiable lunatics.

The need for adult supervision gives state and federal courts out here something to do, and provides job security.

Next thing after that , they’ll have to wear a special badge, say a yellow six-pointed star, be restricted to where they live and be tattooed with a numeric barcode…..

Sailorcurt · April 29, 2024 at 10:25 am

Interestingly, what that translates to is “reparations for the blacks who are least affected by any racial disparities”.

$4k per year property tax break for the blacks who have already achieved the American Dream of individual home ownership, and expedited licensing for those who have enough education and training to rate professional licensing.

I guess if you rent and work as a cashier at a convenience store, you’re SOL.

Or do cashiers require professional licensing in California these days? Wouldn’t surprise me.

My wife and I just got back from Vacation a couple weeks ago…we traveled (by 13 year old Pickup truck towing a 19 year old travel trailer) from the east coast via meandering route (including Bluffton, IN to view the total eclipse) to the Grand Canyon south rim. In Flagstaff it occurred to us that we were within a day’s drive of having traveled coast to coast. We briefly considered completing the trek but neither of us was really enthused about visiting the Land of Fruits and Nuts, so we headed safely back east after our Grand Canyon stay.
