White People Are Creating Unfair Laws for California Reparations: Pay Up America Marshall Act Style Land Needed – Only Blacks with Ancestors in the USA in the 19th Century Eligibility for any slavery reparations

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 31, 2022 by Brother Perspective Magazine

March 30 (Reuters) – A California task force on reparations recommends limiting any government payments to Black people whose ancestors were in the United States in the 19th century, rather than giving money to all Black people.

After a lengthy debate, the panel in the most populous U.S. state voted 5-4 on Tuesday evening to narrow the qualification for receiving compensation if the state were to create a reparation payment program in the future, local media reported.

The panel is charged with issuing recommendations on possible reparations to California’s legislature by June 2023. It began meeting monthly in June 2021, a year after legislation authorized it to study the issue.

Before the vote, Rev. Amos Brown, president of the San Francisco branch of the NAACP and vice chair of the task force, told fellow members they must set an eligibility definition that reflects political realities in the United States.

“Please, please, please I beg us tonight, take the first step,” he said. “We’ve got to give emergency treatment to where it is needed.”

The conversation around reparations for Black Americans has gained traction in the wake of a national reckoning on racial inequity that followed the police killings of George Floyd and other Black Americans in recent years.

The practicality of implementation has been a matter of debate. Some question whether taxpayers can afford to pay reparations while others question how jurisdictions should determine eligibility for such programs – whether by race, ancestry or evidence of discrimination.Report ad

The California task force has yet to determine how potential recipients of reparations would be required to prove their ancestry.

Last March, the Chicago suburb of Evanston created the first reparation program in the United States. Its program offers reparation money to Black residents whose families suffered lasting damage from decades of discriminatory practices.

In January, a committee approved the first 16 applicants to receive $25,000 in the city’s reparations housing program. The applicants can use the money for home repairs, down payments or mortgage payments.

Other cities, including Chicago; Providence, Rhode Island; and Burlington, Vermont, have also created committees to look at reparations.

Beloved Jackson Music – E.P. Supernova – Now available on Pandora, Tidal and Apple Fallin for You – Available on all Major streaming networks

https://www.belovedofficial.com/

Beloved is an American Singer and Songwriter who is creating her own music, as well as breaking the barrier on music-making in the music industry. She is a songwriter who will customize a song just for the musician and give it that perfect sound that they’ve been searching for! She is very creative and gifted when it comes to the manipulation of words and is willing to go the extra mile to make sure that you have exactly what it is that you had in mind. Remember that the song will be customized just for you! This means, she will study the artist, study their likes and interests as well as speak with you about the types of things that you like to talk and sing about. Then you would give her a concept of what you would like your song(s) to be about and let her take over from there. She writes for men, women, children and teenagers.

Beloved Jackson was born in Japan and moved to California at the age of 3. She started singing at the age of 3 years old. Beloved was a part of a group at the age of 11 called “Perfect Praise”. This was a gospel rap group who sang at local events around their community. She has always been interested in creating things, along with sounds and lyrics for music. Singing and writing has always been a passion of hers from a very young age.

Formerly in several Christian choirs, Beloved performed solos at her hometown church and was also involved with events held for the children; wanting to make a difference in their lives. They are one of her main focuses and motivations for pursuing her career. One of her ultimate goals is to help those in need, which are victims of poverty stricken areas.

Beloved likes to use metaphors to help paint pictures of the music and bring it alive. She will use something as small as a butterfly to something as big as the country of Japan.

She does not discriminate when it comes to genres. With some songs having an RnB feel, and some showing the neo soul side of her. She loves the Lord and is not afraid to throw a gospel song in the mix to show it. She believes that you should go with the feeling and take everything as it comes, while having a plan at the same time. The plan for her music is to express herself, and she is able to do that with different genres of music styles. She does not put herself inside of a box or put a label on herself.

Beloved released her new EP titled “Supernova” and a single in SEptember titled “Fallin for you”.

Underground Feed Back Stereo: Brothers Perspective Magazine – Personal Opinion Database – Does White Society Determine What Black People Think? Part 1

Underground Feed Back Stereo / Brothers Perspective Magazine and Personal Opinion Database swap narrative as it relates to a colonized society of poor diets and unjust laws.   Does White Society Determine What Black People Think and from this sarcastic statement, are these thoughts that black people receive from white society worth having and keeping? Shouldn’t Black People reject the pathology of oppression. I’d rather sit with you broken than have peace if I don’t like you. Humans should not be convinced the way that they are educated is correct, it’s always room to learn. Life is an effort and land should not be stolen! Black people worked through racial discrimination, redlining, segregation to be integrated into a society to be discriminated against daily.  #75dab #PersonalOpinionDataBase #raygun81 #biko70

Black History IDLEWILD, MICHIGAN (1912- ) African American Resort

Idlewild, Michigan, was one of the leading African American resorts in the era of Jim Crow segregation. White land developers marketed Idlewild as an all-Negro resort town in Lake County, Michigan, about 300 miles northwest of Chicago, Illinois and 250 miles north of Detroit, through the Idlewild Resort Company. Although founded in 1912, resort property sales lagged until Dr. Daniel Hale Williams, the leading black surgeon at the time, became the first famous property owner in 1915. Williams retired at Idlewild and died there in 1931. His presence attracted colleagues and associates from Chicago, and eventually prominent black doctors from other Midwestern cities began purchasing property there.

Island Park (an island surrounded by Idlewild Lake), was the center of activity from 1920 to 1945. It featured the Idlewild Clubhouse, the Oakmere Hotel, and the Purple Palace Supper Club. Prominent African Americans, including Dr. W.E.B. DuBois, author Charles Waddell Chesnutt, millionaire businesswoman Madam C.J. Walker, and Chicago attorney Violette Nealey Anderson purchased Idlewild property. Anderson donated her property upon her death to her sorority, Zeta Phi Beta. Yet the resort also attracted leading entertainers who made it the “Summer Apollo of Michigan” since the entertainers in turn drew audiences from Chicago, Detroit, and other Midwest cities who came solely for the popular shows.


By the 1950s and early 1960s, Idlewild reached the height of its popularity. During those years nearly 25,000 vacationers made their way to the community, temporarily overwhelmingly the permanent year-round population. During this era, Idlewild boasted more than 300 black-owned businesses.

The Flamingo and Paradise nightclubs served as economic engines driving tourism during this period. The efforts of Phil Giles and Arthur Braggs made Idlewild the nation’s foremost black resort. Detroit hotel owner Giles managed the Hotel Giles and the Flamingo Club to showcase Idlewild as being “The Resort Capital of America.” Braggs, a Saginaw businessman, lured thousands to his Paradise Club by hosting entertainers such as Della Reese, The Four Tops, Jackie Wilson, Brook Benton, Dinah Washington, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, and George Kirby. Idlewild signified black economic empowerment and entertainment glamour. And while the Flamingo Club did not attract famous entertainers who frequented the Paradise Club, it did showcase local and regional musicians, comedians, chorus girls, and singers such as Larry Wrice and the Flamingo All-Star Band, Luther Thompson and the Flamingo Dancers, Black Velvet (an exotic dancer), Lavern Baker, and Detroit’s Queen of the Blues, Alberta Adams. The décor–including pink flamingo motifs on the walls and mirrors–assumed iconic status and symbolized affirmation of urban black identity.

While the clubs attracted black patrons, there were often examples of interracial mingling. As one Idlewild resident recalled, the clubs filled to capacity every night, and on some nights, “there were more white people in there than blacks. It wasn’t about race, it was about fun.”

Idlewild, like other all-black resorts, would not survive the civil rights movement. As formerly whites-only clubs and resorts across the nation integrated in the late 1960s, Idlewild went into decline. Its clubs and hotels closed as blacks began to frequent other resorts. Today, Idlewild is a struggling retirement community with fewer than half a dozen businesses. Despite this decline, Idlewild symbolized the heyday of the combination of race, leisure, and geography to create a briefly prosperous community through niche tourism.
