Evanston, IL Institutes First “Reparations” Program, Using 3% Pot Tax

Breitbart

The liberal Chicago suburb of Evanston, Illinois, officially approved the first spending for “reparations” for black residents on Monday evening. It is the nation’s first reparations program, following an 8-1 vote by local aldermen in November 2019.

As Breitbart News noted at the time, the City of Evanston planned to fund the reparations with a new 3% marijuana tax More

  1. USA under Biden has just “Jumped the Shark”

    Sincerely Sorry.

    We did it in 2019 with Justine Turdeau. It hurts.

  2. What if you’re white and don’t smoke dope will that be considered racist since you’re not contributing to the poor and oppressed black minority. This is totally a dumbass idea because you know the ferals will spend it all as fast as they can get it and come back asking for more. Besides all the reparations for slavery were paid in blood during the Civil War 155 + years ago to end slavery in America. Wasn’t that enough?

  3. “To qualify, an applicant must have “origins in any of the Black racial and ethnic groups of Africa,””

    …so, all I need is a 23 and Me test, one of those ones where they fudge the results so EVERYONE has African DNA just to stick it to Whitey, and I’d get PAID?

    …Oh, wait, I’d have to live in Evanston, IL.

    Hard Pass.

  4. This is going to be fun. They are going to tear each other apart over who ‘qualifies’ and what number of ‘shares’ each gets. Watch them go to extremes in racism and accusations of racism.
    And it will serve as a warning to any other community, county, state, whatever considering ‘reparations.’

  5. Pardon me, but isn’t the end result the same?
    Except the black guy now won’t have to stand on the curb and sell directly to the customer.

  6. Quote from Larry Elder…
    Of the 12.7 million African slaves only 330,000 came to America.

    For his excellent articles on. Sllavery, see his web site. LarryElder.com

  7. I have questions…

    So the set aside ($400,000.) covers the first sixteen grifters and the rest will come from pot taxes? That’s a lot of weed sales.

    The vote was 8 -1 was the one no vote the only white guy/gal?
    Racist!

    Can we get Shitcago to join in the fun? Surely Mayor Beetlejuice would approve. Also, one hundred eighteen shot and killed so far this year with majority being black and surely their heirs can prove they were actually residents of Evanston. The $1,400.00 only goes so far you know…

  8. Is Shitcago trying to set a new record with 118 murders in only 82 days so far this year or what. That’s better than one a day if you can call that a record to envy by any other democrap hellhole in the country.

  9. Explain to me why someone who’s family never owned a slave has to pay this tax??? Sounds like a fine not a tax.

  10. All you need to do is identify as living in Evanston and had a black relative there between 1919 and 1969. That way you can apply for it from anywhere in the world. If you are denied you can sue the city for being discriminatory and racist. If anyone questions your identifying heritage explain to them it’s not your responsibility to answer those questions as a marginalized class, but rather it’s the job of the city to accept it, apologize, and pay you.

  11. I’m sure the Irish descendants will be first in line. After all, the first slave ship to deliver people sold on the shores of this country was filled with Irish children.

    Check my math.

  12. I dunno, seems like they are self funding their own reps to me…

    Anyone else see the irony in using a pot tax to recycle the same money into the same pockets?

  13. …but if Evanston is majority Black and the tax is on pot sales in Evanston, then it will mostly be Black people paying the taxes used to make “reparations” payments TO Black people, n’est-ce pas?

  14. The idiots in Evanston, Ill. are going to know the consequence of stupid leftist policies when the “reparations” stash runs out the first week of distribution. That’s when the majority black population refuse to pay the reparations tax to create more funds – *reaching for popcorn* LOLOL!!!
