Reparations for African American in NYS
The Samuel J. Tilden Democratic Club
WHEREAS, the New York State Senate has introduced Senate Bill 2416 for the purpose of addressing the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the history of the City and State of New York; and
WHEREAS, the enslavement that proliferated in New York constituted an immoral and inhumane deprivation of African Americans’ life, liberty, property, citizenship rights, cultural heritage, and denied them the fruits of their own labor; and
WHEREAS, systematic and pervasive discrimination of African Americans in housing, education, commerce, recreation, and healthcare, which still exists today, has resulted in disparate generational poverty; and
WHEREAS, the Samuel J. Tilden Democratic Club hereby endorses Senate Bill 2416 to establish a commission to examine the institution of slavery in New York, racial and economic discrimination against African Americans, and the economic impact thereof, and to recommend appropriate remedies, financial and otherwise, to the legislature for its consideration and approval.
Therefore, be it
Resolved, the Samuel J Tilden Democratic Club urges the New York State Senate to pass S 2416, and the Governor to sign it into law.
Be it further Resolved, the Samuel J Tilden Democratic Club urges the New York Assembly to take up companion legislation to support S 2416, and the Governor to sign it into law.
