North Carolina City agrees to pay REPARATIONS to it’s Black residentsThe Asheville City Council voted 7-0 in support support of a resolution that apologized for the city’s participation in slavery, discrimination and urban renewal and vowed to create a Community Reparations Commission to provide reparations to Black residents and their descendants.

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

The resolution also calls on the city manager to create recommendations to “address the creation of generational wealth and to boost economic mobility and opportunity in the black community.” The city manager is instructed to give a biannual update to the council on the progress.
