Last month a special task force appointed by left-wing California Gov. Gavin Newsom indicated that each black resident of the Golden State was owed $223,000 for reparations for slavery.
Yet it seems that was off by a factor of four.
Breitbart News reported on Friday that the chairwoman of the committee appointed by Newsom, a Democrat, believes blacks are actually owed $1 million each.
Moreover, the homeless should be the first in line.
In an interview with MSNBC host Al Sharpton, Kamilah Moore said the task force found that the state’s “redlining” housing practices targeting has a direct effect on the current homeless community on the streets of many major cities.

These practices, by the way, occurred more than 40 years ago — between 1933 and 1977.
According to one estimate, between 34% and 40% of California’s homeless are black.
Moore claimed that housing discrimination was one of the five major “harms” the state inflicted on black Californians, according to the Daily Mail of London. One of the other “harms” is “mass incarceration and over-policing.”
Moore asserted that between 1933 and 1977, redlining, a process that withheld certain housing locations, usually in white areas, from minorities, cost black Californians $569 billion.
Moore, while participating in a forum back in November, admitted of the $1 million per black resident that “California can’t pay all that.”

Yet the task force will spend the next six months to figure out how California taxpayers will pay that.
Moore told Sharpton that she believes the reparations issue resonates in left-wing California because “the country came to a racial reckoning in 2020” after career criminal George Floyd died in police custody in Minneapolis, Breitbart reported.
