Репарации выплачивают побежденные?!

А как это еще назвать? 

В Северной Каролине, в одном удивительном городе Победителям решили выплачивать репарации.

За когда-то давно бывшее  рабство репарации. Это чтобы было понятно..

Пока в одном только городе.

Пока… 

Мне вот только пока непонятно, как будут определять тех, кто достоин репараций…

North Carolina city approves ‘reparations,’ apologizes for role in slavery

The council voted 7-0 on a measure to mitigate racial disparities

North Carolina’sAsheville City Council apologized for its role in slavery and racial discrimination, voting unanimously to provide reparations in the form of community investments to help Black residents.

The council voted 7-0 on Tuesday night on the measure to mitigate racial disparities. The reparations will not provide direct cash payments, as some have suggested, but will provide investments in housing, health care and career growth in Black neighborhoods.

Councilwoman Shaneika Smith, who is Black, said the council had gotten emails from those “asking, ‘Why should we pay for what happened during slavery?'”

“[Slavery] is this institution that serves as the starting point for the building of the strong economic floor for White America, while attempting to keep Blacks subordinate forever to its progress,” said Smith, as reported by theAsheville Citizen Times.

The resolution calls on the city to create a Community Reparations Commission to make concrete recommendations of where to funnel programs and resources.

“The resulting budgetary and programmatic priorities may include but not be limited to increasing minority home ownership and access to other affordable housing, increasing minority business ownership and career opportunities, strategies to grow equity and generational wealth, closing the gaps in health care, education, employment and pay, neighborhood safety and fairness within criminal justice,” the resolution reads.

“Hundreds of years of Black blood spilled that basically fills the cup we drink from today,” said Councilman Keith Young, who is one of two African-American city council members and spearheaded the proposal.

“It is simply not enough to remove statutes. Black people in this country are dealing with issues that are systemic in nature,” Young continued.

Councilman Vijay Kapoor, who is known to split with Smith and Young on police and budget issues, said he supported the resolution for moral reasons, but urged skeptics to look at the “practical reason” — data showing large disparities between African-Americans and other Asheville residents.

“We don’t want to be held back by these gaps,” Kapoor said. “We want everyone to be successful.”

Это никак не расизм!!!

Вот так, вот… Дожили. Соседнее графство в борьбе с коронавирусом превзошло все, что возможно. В графстве Lincoln решили, что только белые должны носить маски. 

Можно посмотреть по ссылке, как это все объяснялось. 

It wasn’t hard to find Lincoln County’s mask directive. A summary — in large font — featured prominently on the COVID-19 web page of the Oregon county’s health department. It was topped with a link to the full text of the order. 

The policy was nearly identical to one instituted three weeks prior without much fuss, governing Lincoln County’s courthouses and other public buildings. And it looked a lot like the ones six other Oregon counties issued after Gov. Kate Brown mandated masks be worn in seven counties where COVID-19 was rising sharply.

The one notable difference between Lincoln County’s policy and the others: it clearly spelled out something that the other six counties only implied: that “people of color who have heightened concerns about racial profiling and harassment due to wearing face coverings in public” are exempt from the rule.

 And that’s what people focused on.

They sent emails. They called. They texted. County commissioners and public health officials, already overwhelmed trying to handle a growing outbreak in the small coastal county, found their phones unusable. They set up a separate line just to handle the complaints.

“My first thought was, ‘Oh god, we’re still in the middle of a pandemic with an active outbreak going on.’ Our staff is tired, we have a lot of people we’re trying to care for, and we’re calling our legal counsel saying, ‘Oh my god, what is going on,’” said Lincoln County Commission Chair Kaety Jacobson.

The calls and comments fell into two main categories:

Вот чего я точно не понимаю, почему все протесты превращаются в банальное мародерство. В уничтожение зданий, в разграбление всего и вся, до чего удается дотянуться и т.д. В нашем случае, к разграбленным объектам добавились точки, где продается марихуана.
