This bill directs a study by the Oregon Department of Administrative Services methods of providing alleged reparations for the slavery of Black Oregonians.
Personal Choice and Responsibility
It has been close to 160 years since anyone owned an African Slave. Will create victimhood where it is not warranted. There were Chinese, and Irish indentured persons, what about them! African Americans owned slaves, American Indians took slaves. This bill is Racist in its concept!
Once you go down this path and start paying people that were never slaves from people that never owned slaves, the hole gets deeper!
Oregon was never a slave State! This is a Federal issue.
