Reparations Now Up to $360,000; State Never Allowed Slavery

California, which entered the Union in 1850 as a free state, is now considering reparations of up to $360,000 per eligible recipient — more than 50% more than the amount  floated as the highest possibility last year.

In December, as Breitbart News reported, a state committee considering reparations heard recommendations that eligible recipients — those descended from former black slaves — could qualify for up to $233,000.

Now, however, that amount has ballooned to $360,000 per recipient, according to Bloomberg News — perhaps under pressure from local efforts in cities like San Francisco, which is considering $5 million per black resident.

It is not clear where the money will come from, as the state has a budget deficit of roughly $25 billion this year, and many cities are also short of money. It is also unclear why California would pay for sins it did not commit.
