CA just became the first state in the nation to mandate the study and development of proposals for reparations.
Our past is one of slavery, racism, and injustice. Our systems were built to oppress people of color.
It’s past time we acknowledge that. https://t.co/sY8UWffqzt

Who can forget the slaves signing their sad spirituals while they picked the cotton of the vast plantations of Burbank and North Hollywood?
Actually, California was admitted as a free state in 1851, but there were certain loopholes that allowed slaves to be brought into the state for the next 12 years.
Bravo @GavinNewsom for vetoing the California Ethnic Studies bill.
California's students deserve and need a real ethnic studies program that teaches about the people of all backgrounds who make up the Golden State.

But I guess the ethnic studies program failed to teach about of oppressed of all backgrounds, such as Hollywood movie producers who were oppressed by the incessant nagging for better movies.
