Mostly White North Carolina City Approves Slavery Reparations for Its Black Residents

Now we know why North Carolina is rapidly turning into a blue state.

Reparations with no end is typical leftist double talk.

One day America will wake up to the fact that all lives matter and that will be the beginning of the end of the racist BLM movement.

The city of Asheville, N.C., will now be paying slavery reparations to its black residents after the city council approved the sale of city property to fund it, reports

The mostly white community will ultimately spend $200,000 on the planning and community engagement process, and $1.9 million on “initial” reparations.

The funding was approved without debate.

Asheville City Manager Debra Campbell is overseeing the planning and community engagement process. Campbell told the city council she launched a speaker series centered around reparations.

“We truly want to have a better understanding of what has been the policies that either currently exist or have existed in the past that have impacted the lives, particularly of black people in Asheville,” Campbell said.

“We want to identify and understand the current disparities in the needs and what we should really be focusing on.”

I spent the weekend here on the most enjoyable adult Christmas of my life with Ms. Nancy Otero.

Just The News notes that “Black workers in Asheville made an annual mean wage of $27,998 between 2012 and 2016.

White workers made more than any other racial group in Asheville within the same time, with an annual mean salary of $43,553.”

Ashville has a population of approximately 93,350 people, and according to the U.S. Census, 11 percent of the population (approximately 10,270 people) is black.

It is not clear what form the reparations will take, but equal single payments to each black resident would come out a mere $185 per person.

While it seems unlikely this is the form Asheville’s reparations will take, perhaps the bigger question is: What does the city of Asheville think these reparations will accomplish?

Will Asheville’s black residents be exempt from affirmative action after receiving these reparations?

If not, what exactly is the point of the reparations?

Is it really to help Asheville’s black population, none of whom ever personally experienced slavery in America, or the Asheville City Council, which gets to virtue-signal their wokeness at the cost of $2.1 million?

    I hope they’re conditioned for the regular yearly increase in “Reparations.” Once you start the gravy-train rolling there’s no stopping it.

    Our family enjoyed visiting the Biltmore House. It is a wonderful, magical trip to the past, especially at Christmas.

    We now avoid Asheville like the plague.

    “$200,000 on the planning and community engagement process” and which WHITE council member’s WHITE friend/family will get that contract?

    Would be cheaper to hand out $100 bills to every Black person they see walking around town on random days for a year. At least that way the local businesses would get a boost from Black people showing up and spending their windfall.

    If I were a conservative in Asheville, I’d be scrutinizing the city council’s financial disclosures and demanding their pay and stipends for serving on the council be eliminated.

    Or, I’d run for office and get on the gravy train so that THEY will demand that those payments be cut.
