Just another kick in the teeth for White America. The Washington Times, on Sunday, December 11th., ran this racist headline, “California expands guaranteed income program for pregnant Black women.”
A San Francisco program providing guaranteed income to pregnant Black women will soon spread to other counties throughout California.
An additional 425 mothers “and other birthing parents” will be served by the Abundant Birth Project throughout the Golden State next year as the program opens in Alameda, Contra Costa, Los Angeles and Riverside counties, according to a release from the San Francisco city government last week.
The programs in each of the counties will run for two- to three-year periods, thanks to a $5 million grant from the California Department of Social Services.
“The Abundant Birth Project has proven to be successful in San Francisco and brings an innovative, equitable approach to addressing disproportionate health impacts largely among Black families, which is why I committed to investing $1.5 million over the next two years to grow the program in our City and neighboring counties,” San Francisco Mayor London Breed said in the release. “We hope the Abundant Birth Project serves as a model to address racial birth disparities throughout the region and state, and across the country.”
New versions of the program expanding throughout the state will provide Black mothers with monthly incomes of $600 to $1,000 for a full year.
Thomas Robb, the National Director of the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan, centrally located in Harrison, Arkansas, spoke from his office saying, “More freebies for non-whites at the expense of working White people. This is being done just as an incentive to have more black women get pregnant. It’s not White peoples fault that some black women don’t have the motivation to go out and work, and make money for better health care. Each and every individual in America has the same opportunities. It all depends on who’s willing to work for what they want. Plus, this isn’t the only motive behind this. Paying black women to get pregnant is a sure way to insure more black births. If there are more black births than White ones, it causes ‘White replacement’, White replacement is just a nicer way of saying White genocide. There’s always a more sinister motive behind what our government does.”
