[Ed. – So what would be enough?]
Some black Americans living in Evanston, Illinois, who will be given $25,000 each as part of the city’s $10million [sic] reparations program don’t think it’s enough.
The payout is supposed to make amends for the racist housing policies in the city, north of Downtown Chicago, and a reparations program was established in 2019 – but some activists don’t think it’s sufficient.
However, Rev Michael Nabors, who is the president of the Evanston NAACP, thinks $25,000 is a “drop in the bucket.”
“When it’s all said and done, however much money is raised for reparations … will only be a drop in the bucket for the suffering and the oppression that Black people experienced in this nation,” he told Newsweek.
