    CA-Oakland launches UBI for people of color.

    Universal Basic Income in Oakland is the first program only for people of color

    Like many other cities around the country, Oakland, Calif., has launched a pilot program of Universal Basic Income (UBI) geared towards helping the city’s lowest income residents. But unlike other pilot programs, Oakland’s UBI program is also attempting to reduce the racial wealth gap, and will be the first to make race a qualification of the program.

    Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf told Yahoo Finance that Oakland’s approach is one of “equity."

    "We have a well-documented racial wealth gap in this country, 10 times asset poverty. We have, in Oakland, documented three times a difference in median incomes between our white families and our Black families,” Schaaf said. “As a piece of this policy development, we believe that we can contribute to the question of how to close the racial wealth gap, as well as designing a program that's going to work for the families that are facing the most barriers.”

    The Cherokee owned slaves so, it seems, you owe Danke beads, cast ware and steel knives, if he identifies Black. In the hierarchy you are second.
