EXCLUSIVE – Californians need to “chill out” about reparation proposals and pay their “sin bill.” Those strong words come from a senior member of both the state and San Francisco reparation task forces.

“You cannot put a dollar sign on what has been done to Black people,” Dr. Amos Brown, a civil rights activist and reverend of the Third Baptist Church, told Fox News Digital. “Our sin bill in this nation has been so high, and because of the long years of doing nothing, the interest has grown.”

Earlier this month, the California reparations task force, which Brown is vice chair of, approved its final recommendations on how the state should compensate Black residents for the lasting effects of slavery, including cash payments of up to $1.2 million per person.

The report explains that Brown is also on the San Francisco African American Reparations Advisory Committee, which recommended Blacks in the city be given $5 million payouts, guaranteed annual income of at least $97,000, and all their personal debts forgiven.

“All we’re saying is let’s just chill out and pay your debt – your sin bill of enslavement. Of discrimination. Of intimidation. Of terrorizing Black people,” Brown declared.

He also insisted that “If we can’t pay it now, we do like the Germans did – pay for it over installments.”
