The resolution does not give direct payments to descendants of slaves, but instead allocates money to areas that traditionally see racial disparities.

Those areas include an effort to increase minority home ownership and access to affordable housing. Investments will also be made to increase minority business ownership and career opportunities. Other priorities include closing gaps in health care, education, pay and fairness within the criminal justice system.


so yea... once you get past the headlines and what everyone thinks it is... just a cute way for them to virtue signal and make people think they're doing something when its - at best - just another urban development package that will get siphoned off by the typical gryfters (contractors, loan writers, politicians, etc) who take advantage of govt projects like these.

it doesnt do f***-all for any slave descendant, or appear to have any requirement relating to limiting it to only person(s) who qualify's as such.

a city cannot force a state or federal govt to do anything to forcing funding for their pet projects.

This resolution gives special interest groups in the city of Asheville a great deal of leverage and control over city funds and how those funds are appropriated. Your comments sound a great deal like the propaganda we were hearing a few weeks ago about de-funding the police. Democrats and leftists told us it does not really mean "de-funding the police". Try telling that to the law-abiding citizens in New York City where the communist mayor and city counsel just removed $1,000,000,000.00 from the cities police budget to be re-appropriated to social justice programs. Read this part of the resolution again:

(6) directs the City Manager to establish a process within the next year to
develop short, medium and long term recommendations to specifically address the creation of
generational wealth and to boost economic mobility and opportunity in the black community;

(7) fully supports its equity department, staff and its work, and encourages the city
manager to utilize their talents when forming policy and programs that will establish the creation
of generational wealth and address reparations due in the black community as mentioned
above;

(8) seeks to establish within the next year, a new commission empowered to make short,
medium and long term recommendations that will make significant progress toward repairing
the damage caused by public and private systemic Racism. Other local government community
organizations may also be invited to have representation on the Commission.The task of the
Community Reparations Commission is to issue a report in a timely manner for consideration by
the City and other participating community groups for incorporation into their respective short
and long term priorities and plans. Accountability for achieving equity will be enforced in the
appropriate offices. The report and 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;

(9) calls on the city manager to give, at minimum, a bi-annual update to the city council
on the progress of work performed pursuant to this resolution.
Read, approved and adopted this 14th day of July, 2020.
