New Law Mandates California To Study The Issue Of Reparations For Slaves' Descendants
"This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm Elsa Chang in January. 18 65 As the Civil war staggered into its final months, the US made a promise. It would take for 100,000 acres of confiscated southern lands stretching from South Carolina to Florida and redistribute it to formerly enslaved black people in 40 acre parcels. Well, that order did not last long. Within the year, Lincoln's replacement president, Andrew Johnson, broke that promise and handed the land back to plantation owners. That was the nation's first systematic attempt to provide reparations for slavery. More recently, the late Michigan congressman John Conyers, tried and failed for nearly three decades. Yet Congress to consider the same issue. Now California has taken Conyers bill and used it as an inspiration for a new bill signed into law last week. It is the first state law of its kind. California Assemblywoman Shirley Weber is the author of that Bill, and she joins us Now. Welcome. Thank you. It's good to be here. Good to have you So what this new law does is basically set up a task force to study the issue of reparations for the descendants of enslaved people and To make further recommendations from there. Tell me what are you hoping to see? Come out of this task force. Well, I think they're a couple of things we hope will happen. Obviously, we hope there will be a number of recommendations on what the state needs to do in order to repair the damage that's been done. But hopefully in addition to that, we will have robust conversations about the really deep and long and pervasive impact of slavery and racism in California and across the nation. I talked to too many people who tell me I'm not a slave holder. I didn't I didn't own any slaves. What does that mean to me? Well, you may not have owned them, but the impact of your forefathers owning them. As what is the impact of the various laws and limitations placed upon African Americans That made it difficult, if not impossible, for them to compete educationally and economically and socially still has its lingering impact, and we see that in the streets today, we'll give us some concrete examples of what form Might these reparations take Well, you know, it could be like it is a Georgetown where those folks who was slaves that landed Georgetown, every descendant of those individuals now could have access and free education of Georgetown. We could look at the issue of loans and grants for people starting businesses, and we have businesses that are suffering and sometimes failing in this pandemic. Because of our let the lack of support and financing that made it almost difficult, if not impossible, for them to own land and only businesses. We need to look at housing patterns. California had some very, very racist housing patterns that existed. But they're they're number of things that need to exist and to indicate that is tremendous amount of damage was done and puts California on the hook as well, because he basically California was a free state, right. A lot of people don't think of California as a slave state, but exactly what role California did play when it came to slavery. Well, we had one of most racist governors who talked about removing all black people from state of California free or slaves. We created laws that prevented them from being able to testify in court against white person. We had lots of things embedded in our land ownership that prevents folks from buying or selling homes to African Americans. All of those things are important, as they began to say, is this wide African Americans continue to struggle have the least amount of wealth amassed have low homeownership, all those kinds of things that even after generations and generations of struggle. We still find that these things prevail. And even though a few sneak through the vast majority do not Now let me ask you dealing with the legacy of slavery is an issue that this entire country needs to reckon with. So there are a lot of people say, Let's look to a federal solution. How would you respond to that? Well, we have We lived for federal solution for 30 to 40 years. At this point, it's just not happening at the federal level. And so after waiting, we said, You know what California could do this? And I've governor said, You know what we can lead the way and that we think will motivate others to do. Likewise, California state Assemblywoman Shirley Weber was the author of a new state law to study reparations for slavery. Thank you very much, thank you for the opportunity.

"So daily Mail says that four million African people in their descendants were enslaved in the United States from the 16 1918 65. And they say the practice was constitutionally approved for more than 75 years until slavery was abolished by the 13th amendment in 18 65. Now something woman, Shirley Weber She's a Democrat who authored the bill and his has been campaigning for this is California's come to terms with many of its issues, but it has yet to come to terms with this role in slavery. We're talking about really addressing the issues of justice and fairness in this country that we have to address. So Southerners have brought slaves to California. Back in 18 48 tow work in the gold mines during the gold rush in 18 49 when California adopted his constitution. And you know, wanted to be ratified and seek entrance to United States, they officially banned slavery. Yet. Because of the divided country. From over. Understand you appease the south. They agreed that if there was an escaped slave That came to America came to California because California officially banned slavery, they would return them to their owners. So they need to research who did that and how that could have affected California's current Californians and then discrimination that persisted long after 18 65. So Los Angeles had been deeply segregated, they said into the 19 seventies last year, Sollecito Marin City School District received the state's first desegregation order. In 50 years. So there's obviously issues that need to be research needs to be looked at. But In terms of the money. What would that look like? William Garrity, a professor at Duke University, will come off in a book on reparations, says the states and localities. They just don't have the capacity to meet that task. He suggests. Now this is William Garrity, a professor Duke University. He suggests giving each of the 40 million current black Americans descended from slaves, which is the estimated number up to $250,000 in a trust. He said. It's a federal government. That should be the culpable party because it created the legal in authority framework that permitted all of these atrocities to take place. Now again. Where would that money come from? Well, most likely taxes, So you know, it's now you know what taxes If you add something to the gas tax, or, you know you had something to water bottles or soda tax. You know, we don't really see it that much. And I mean I see it. Wait..

"If But I don't even know 48 hours later, almost, and I still can't get over what we watched. Well, I guess only some of us watched and listened to it because the ratings for this first presidential debate of the election season were actually lower. Then they were during the 2016 election. The Nielsen measuring system has estimated 73 million people watched the debate on Tuesday between the president Joe Biden, the first debate for years ago had 84 million viewers. I thought that was kind of interesting. Governor, Newsome is signed three bills into law that addressed racism in government. It's just remarkable that we haven't established these frameworks Ah, and these criterias in the past. One of the laws set up a nine member task force to create a plan for how the state could give reparations to black Americans. Assemblywoman Shirley Weber helped push the legislation We're talking about really addressing the issues of justice and fairness in this country that we have to address Another bill prohibits the use of race, ethnicity or national origin. To get a conviction or impose sentence is the third aims to eliminate discrimination in jury selection. Now California has become the first state to ban the use of toxic chemicals in cosmetics. Governor Newsome signed a bill banning 24 hazardous ingredients in makeup and personal care products by 2025 companies are also required to disclose toxic chemicals used in their beauty items. Governor was a busy guy. Yesterday he vetoed a bill that would have mandated ethnic studies for all high school students. Newsom says he values the way ethnic studies can help students think critically and understand marginalized communities, he says. That's why he signed a bill to mandate ethnic studies for all cow state university students. But Newsome says there's too much uncertainty about what would be appropriate curriculum for younger students. And the governor vetoed a bill that would have given low income immigrants in California $600 for groceries. The bill was supposed to help people who are affected by Cove in 19, but who aren't eligible for state and federal assistance, including illegal immigrants. Newsom says the bill put too much strain on the state's budget. And a happy birthday this morning to America's oldest next president, That is Jimmy Carter. He turned 96. Today.

"E D news. I'm Rachel Myrow. Today is the final day of the California legislative session. Lawmakers are expected to work late into the night, finishing up their business for the year after this year's session was interrupted repeatedly because of the pandemic. There were still hundreds of bills that made it to the end of the legislative process and over to the governor's desk. Don't worry. We're not going to talk about all of them right now. Just a handful with kbkids politics reporter Katie or thank you for joining us. Thanks for having me. Okay? Why don't we start with a B 31 21, which deals with reparations for African Americans? What exactly with this bill do so I want to start with what it would not do And that is it would not give out any money to people. This bill creates a task force to look at what reparations for slavery. Might look like in California who would get them how they would get whatever those reparations might be. There will be a task force that will be formed and must meet by June. I should say if the governor signs this bill, that task force would then have to make a report and issue recommendations to the Legislature within a year. Author Assemblywoman Shirley Weber says that reparations can take many forms and that the task force would Quote require an in depth examination of the impacts of slavery and it's after lives in California and provide the framework to develop guidelines on how to begin to address the disparities. Eso. There was not a lot of strong opposition to this bill, and it's certainly one that is coming about During a time when the country is talking about racial justice issues, which could help its chance of ultimately being signed by the governor. Another measure, 89 79 would require more diversity on the boards of corporations based in California. How exactly would that work? This is similar to another California law that requires corporations based in the state to have a certain number of women on their boards. This bill would require each publicly held corporation whose principal executive offices their their top people are located in California. They would need to have at least one director from what the bill calls an underrepresented community on its board. By the end of 2021, that number would increase by the end of 2022, depending on how large the board is on then corporations that don't comply could actually face finds from the state. Supporters of the measure point out that the vast majority of board seats for Fortune 500 companies are held by white people, most specifically white men, which they say is the result of ah, systemic discrimination and has a negative trickle down effect on companies and even the economy. They say it really holds. These corporations back from their most potential. There are always people who worry that when we put requirements like this on companies that it makes business harder to do in California, and a less attractive place for these lucrative corporations to be headquartered, But it hasn't really slowed the progress of this bill and finally tell us about a B 27 62, which bans the use of certain ingredients in cosmetics, told in California. Well, this is not really a huge problem for me these days because I'm not wearing any makeup because I'm at home, not even in front of a zoom camera. Absolutely not. This bill would ban the use of 24 specific chemicals in the manufacturer sale of makeup in California, which includes formaldehyde and mercury chemicals that are known to cause harm. It's interesting because there are similar regulations in place for the European Union, but not in the United States Still This did not get much opposition in the Legislature and actually got bipartisan support. Interesting. Will politics reporter Katie your thank.

"Lawmakers that have introduced this Bill and the peace officers association they want to compromise because they see things in the Bill, that they say would jeopardize the safety of police officers to hopefully come to some type of resolution, and hopefully we can get to a point where we can just say, okay, this is we, we give some input on language. And this new Bill is something we can, we can both live with, it'll keep officer safe and it'll keep the public safe, which is, I think the goal for, for everybody said the Bill that is now on the floor of the legislature needs to be passed within two weeks in order to meet the next deadline. Three ninety two does not make it out of committee, per deadline, then we'll work to see if maybe there's some other Bill before the end of session, and before the end of the first year in September, that is something that could possibly go to, to governor and do some desk.

They can find a way forward that both sides can agree to a we reached out to assembly members Weber McCarty for statements on this reaction. And they declined.

"Actually, even the state of California allows police officers to use deadly force when they have a reasonable fear that they or someone else will be harmed. So let's analyze that sentence for a second. Okay, because this is a little confusing. So just listen here. Officers can use deadly force, when there's a reasonable fear that they, they themselves or someone else. Will be harmed. Think one of the most terrifying things for an officer to do is when they kick in the door of a building or a house, and they rush in there, someone maybe being held hostage or there's a person in there with a gun or they have no idea. That's the point. They're blind. They kick in the door rush into the home. No clue what's behind the door that has to be terrifying. That has to be I be curious just to talk to officer just on that alone that has to be terrifying. This doesn't seem like a profound statement. What I'm about to say. But for some reason in this day and age it's, it's somehow controversial police officers have one of the hardest jobs in the world. Period. Again, does it seem like a statement that should be taken out of context some controversial thing? However, somehow it is, if you talk to police officers right now they are saying their job is getting harder has been the hardest. It's ever been. And it's because of things like this assemblywoman Shirley Weber is introducing has introduced where it's going, it's going to pass. I don't I don't know where it is on the state level because the city council voted yesterday or a couple of days ago to accept it the county voted last week to not, but it doesn't matter because on the state level, it will pass. She is introduced the Bill that wants to change that definition that I said earlier. To this. Deadly force can be used only when necessary to prevent death or injury. When there is no other reasonable alternatives, such as de escalating situation backing off or using nonlethal methods. Now again, I said, that's a big, big confusing here because you're just there's some words that are twisted, and you say, well, that doesn't sound so bad. What would her Bill wants to do? There's a key word in the first definition. And again, I'll go back to here. Officers can use deadly force when there's a reasonable fear that they or someone else will be harmed. The key word is reasonable when there's a reasonable fear that the officer officer or someone else will be harmed. They can use deadly force. The new the new definition only to prevent death or injury. Now, the reason this is so much different. Now, this definition puts the blame on the officers. Now go here with me. Surely Weber is a democrat created this Bill in the assembly of the state of California. It's backed by all the groups ACLU black lives matter. You name it. It's backed by all the folks. I was talking to an officer last week. Who's about to retire a few months? I asked him what he was most looking forward to when he's done. He paused looked at me and said the politics. Then I thought, oh, is there is there, some internal fighting maybe the politics in any workplace right? Maybe at the officers are jostling for position. He said, oh, no, no. The politics of California, the politicians making law enforcement officers lives even harder. The were a hundred and forty four officers killed in the line of duty last year, a hundred and forty four were killed. Many more injured barely made it out. Who knows how many missed it by just just an inch. And now you have politicians in Sacramento, trying to make their lives even more difficult. Think about that.
