A group of activists recently gathered to demand payment from the City of Austin for “decades of racism, inequity and displacement”.
The Austin chapter of the NAACP, the Austin Urban League the Austin Justice Coalition and several other groups says the city must rectify past sins by paying up.
According to KUT, “Rapper” Noon Turner, organizer of the Black Austin Coalition says
“I see dogs in my city having a higher quality of life than Black children. And so that's what this is about."
Turner claims he’s currently in discussions with Austin Mayor Steve Adler and District 1 Council Member Natasha Harper-Madison, about his reparations plan.
Good luck with that. If any city in Texas were to fork over millions in reparations, it would be Austin.
