Larry Elder Targets San Francisco’s $5 Million Recovery Plan: ‘When Do We Stop?’

Conservative TV and radio host Larry Elder on Thursday took aim at a new proposal by the San Francisco Reparations Committee to pay every black longtime resident $5 million – while warning that the movement to support reparations is growing as young People become “indoctrinated” in this supporting narrative.

“I think the movement is growing,” Elder said in an interview with Fox News Digital. “Young woke people are being indoctrinated to believe that systemic racism, structural racism, and historical racism are the reason Black people underperform.”

Elder, who was previously running for governor of California, reacted after San Francisco’s African-American Reparations Advisory Committee, which is advising the city on developing a plan for reparations for black residents, released its draft report last month that addressed reparations for what it believes to be 300 years of oppression and discrimination for which black Americans deserve compensation. It cites government policies, Jim Crow laws, and redlining to create the wealth gap between white and black communities.

“While neither San Francisco nor California formally instituted the institution of slavery, the principles of segregation, white supremacy, and the systematic oppression and marginalization of black people have been codified through legal and extra-legal measures, social codes, and judicial enforcement,” the statement said Draft states.

The draft plan includes a long list of financial recommendations for Black San Francisco residents, including a one-time lump sum payment of $5 million to each eligible individual.

Although there was considerable outrage at the proposal, Elder was not surprised by the plan that emerged in San Francisco.

“My first reaction is, ‘What would you expect from this city?'” he joked

Elder defined reparations as a “fraction of the money given by people who never owned slaves to people who never owned slaves.” He also highlighted the connection between Democrats and both slavery and oppressive systems like Jim Crow.

“They were also Jim Crow’s party. All of the Southern governors and senators were the ones who supported Jim Crow…A larger percentage of Republicans voted for the civil rights bill in the House and Senate than the Democrats. The Democrats formed the KKK, I’m not saying the Democratic Party, but the Democrats formed the KKK. So the Democrats are the ones who should be apologizing for slavery, for Jim Crow and nobody else.”

Elder argued that the money would do nothing to solve the underlying problems facing black Americans, such as family breakdown, and would only serve to exacerbate racial disharmony.

“So the money isn’t going to do anything but piss off people who are on the hook for paying them unrelated to the conditions I just mentioned, and it’s going to create a lot of racial tension and tension in America.” create and create a desire for other people who also feel warned about money.”

He pointed out that women might have a case for reparations by the 20th century due to their disqualification from voting.

“One could argue that women were excluded from many welfare and financial benefits because they did not have the right to vote until the early 20th century. So virtually any group can argue why that group is entitled to something. when do we stop how do we stop Where do we stop?

He noted that reparations were once a fringe idea that has taken off dramatically in recent years, along with other ideas to right past wrongs: “Whoever said compound interest was the greatest force in the universe is never white blamed,” he quipped.

When it came to helping people succeed in life, Elder’s advice was simple:

“Most of the time, if you work hard, invest in yourself, avoid the criminal justice system, don’t have a child until you’re 20, get married first – you won’t be poor. And that’s what we should be telling people, instead of saying, ‘You owe something, even though you’re not the one who picked the cotton, you’re not the one who suffered because of Jim Crow, you’re certainly not the one who was slaves.

“The mentality is that you are entitled to something. You are owed something. And that’s probably the most damaging thing of all.”
