Evanston Illinois votes to pay reparations to African-American with tax on Pot
How is this even legal that a city can use local taxes to give money to just one race? If a federal law was passed that would make sense but not local city taxes. I dont see this standing up in court if a resident file suit and in my opinion I think it's a 99.99% chance someone will do just that.

Quote:US city to pay reparations to African-American community with tax on marijuana sales

A city in Illinois has announced it will create a reparations fund for its African American community through a new tax on marijuana sales.

Recreational use of the drug will become legal in the state from January and officials in Evanston, which is 12 miles north of Chicago, have voted to approve a 3 per cent tax on the sales to fund a local reparations programme.

The tax is expected to generate between $500,000 and $750,000 annually for the reparations fund, which will be capped at $10 million over the next ten years.

The fund will be available to all of the city's black residents, rather than merely those who can prove they had an ancestor who was enslaved, as long as they can meet certain residency criteria.

A separate tax funded handout explicitly for one minority group? That wont breed any resentment

14th Amendment.. requred a civil war. You cannot make race a requirement for a program.
