On September 30, 2020, California Governor signed a bill that would create a government task force to study and build plans to dole out reparations for descendants of slaves.
The Washington Free Beacon provided some context to the passage of this bill:
Assembly Bill 3121 makes California the first state to form a task force charged with researching the effects of slavery and creating a plan for reparations. The law—which comes after a summer of racial unrest following the death of George Floyd in May—also requires the group to educate the public on California’s historical involvement with slavery and segregation.
For reparations to go out, subsequent legislation will be needed. This could manifest itself through cash payments or larger spending programs directed to black communities. The bill highlights how any state-funded reparation spending packages should not replace a federal reparations program.
California State Assemblywoman Shirley Nash Weber introduced the bill a few months ago.
Due to the racial unrest following the death of George Floyd, talk about reparations for blacks has become a mainstream talking point among academics and even some local officials. By law, regents at the University of California must carry out research on slavery and its residual effects. Asheville, North Carolina was one city that led the way back in July by approving legislation that increased funding for programs that incentivized black homeownership, which is considered a form of reparations.
Reparations has a dubious foundation given how the U.S. government has passed plenty of Great Society programs that are supposed to help blacks. Moreover, handouts to blacks would not address the core problems they face — single-parent households and epidemic levels of crime – which are largely the product of the modern-day welfare state.
Many boosters of reparations would do well to read up on the history of Black America before the welfare state, to see how this community thrived during a time when government was much smaller and allowed for Americans of all colors and creeds to thrive.
A sleeker government, not another wealth transfer program such as a reparations, is the key to mitigating tensions in America.
Here’s Where Hispanics Will Play a Decisive Role in the 2020 Elections
In 2020, Hispanics will leave their mark in presidential elections.
During the present election cycle, Hispanics will be the country’s largest ethnic minority in a U.S. presidential contest. 32 million Hispanics will be expected to cast their ballots in the 2020 presidential election. They will make up 13.3 percent of all eligible voters. That said, the number of Hispanic eligible voters is significantly lower than the 60 million Hispanics who live in the country.
Nationally speaking, 62 percent of Hispanic registered voters identify with or lean towards the Democratic Party On the other hand, 34 percent hold similar inclinations with the Republican Party.
Pew Research Center highlighted five key facts about the geographic distribution of the Latino vote for the 2020 presidential election:
Here are five facts about the geography of Latino voters for the upcoming 2020 presidential election:
1 Two-in-three Latino eligible voters live in just five states. California alone holds roughly a quarter of the nation’s Latino electorate, with 7.9 million Latino eligible voters. Texas is second with 5.6 million, followed by Florida (3.1 million), New York (2.0 million) and Arizona (1.2 million).
2 Latinos make up the highest share of eligible voters in New Mexico (43%). The other top states are California (30%), Texas (30%), Arizona (24%) and Florida (20%).
3 Texas’ 20th Congressional District is home to 359,000 Latino eligible voters, the highest number of any congressional district in the country. Texas’ 16th, 34th and 23rd districts, and Florida’s 26th District, round out the top five, each with at least 321,000 Latino eligible voters.
4 California’s 40th District has the nation’s highest share (80%) of Latinos among its eligible voter population. Texas is home to the next four highest districts, where at least seven-in-ten eligible voters in each are Latino: the 34th District (79%), 16th District (77%), 15th District (73%) and the 28th District (71%).
In 26 congressional districts, Latinos represent at least half of all eligible voters. Most are in California (11 districts) and Texas (eight districts). Florida (25th, 26th and 27th districts), Arizona (3rd and 7th districts), New York (15th District) and Illinois (4th District) also are home to congressional districts that meet this threshold.
5 Only about half of the nation’s 60 million Hispanics are eligible to vote – the smallest share of any racial or ethnic group. While the Hispanic population has grown rapidly in recent decades, many are not eligible voters. More than other racial or ethnic groups, many Hispanics are young (18.6 million are under 18 years old) or non-citizen adults (11.3 million, more than half of whom are unauthorized immigrants).
Hispanics will be one of the key constituents that will play a huge role in American politics from here on out. Despite all the media hype about them being a reliable bloc vote because of the GOP’s supposedly tough stances on immigration restriction, many Hispanics do in fact support tighter controls on immigration. Additionally, in certain crucial swing states such as Florida, Hispanics are beginning to head on over to the Republican side.
Trump’s national populism, not Hispandering, is key in making sure that Democrats don’t turn the Hispanic vote into a dominate segment of its coalition. All things considered, Hispanics will play a pivotal role in leading Donald Trump to victory on November 3.
