Requests for Newsom to seek executive action on reparations are answered with silence

Gavin Newsom, the governor of California, is remaining quiet. At the same time, his state discusses paying Black citizens hundreds of billions of dollars in compensation as a way to apologize for slavery and the discrimination that followed.

The thought of his state eventually approving a wide range of new reparations initiatives gathering support in California has not yet inspired Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom to choose a position or make any public remarks.

When Fox News Digital repeatedly asked the governor’s office for a reaction on his opinions on the matter and if he had considered using his executive authority to carry out the suggested plans if the California Legislature remained silent, the governor’s office never responded.

A proposal to offer roughly 1.8 million Black Californians that used to have ancestors who were slaves in the U.S. only about $360,000 per individual is being considered by the California Reparations Task Force, which was established by state legislation approved by Newsom in 2020. The plan’s overall expense is estimated to be around $640 billion.

The California Legislature will receive the task force’s finalized reparations suggestions and consider whether to execute them before sending them to Governor Newsom for his signature.
