African Americans in California will receive cash payments in damages for discrimination against their ancestors in the United States. This was announced on Thursday, October 1, by the American TV channel ABC.
The corresponding bill was signed by the Governor of California Gavin Newsom. Descendants of slaves will be able to receive the greatest compensation.
To this end, it is planned to create a group of five governors and four people, elected by the state legislature, who will develop proposals on how the state can compensate blacks for the previous manifestation of systemic racism.
The law does not say that payments must be in cash. Other options may include writing off student loans, paying for community service projects, or vocational training.
Recall that in the United States, a professor at the University of Southern California, Greg Patton, was suspended from work due to accusations of racism. This was achieved by his dark-skinned students. Patton uttered a Chinese word several times, very similar to an insult to African Americans.
