Green Party supports call for reparations in Philadelphia

The Green Party of Philadelphia (GPOP) endorsed the March for Reparations on October 16 in Clark Park, University City, Philadelphia. This was not a difficult endorsement because the Green Party holds that the national problem of white supremacy can only be resolved through reparations. From the Green Party point of view, reparations should be offered to rectify three types of white supremacy: the forced slavery of kidnapped Africans beginning in the colonial era; the resulting violence and discrimination against citizens of color since the formal end of chattel slavery in 1865; and the continuing punishment of people of color by “the ideology of white supremacy which permeates our institutions today.” Those institutions include healthcare, housing, education, finances, law enforcement, employment and food distribution. As a result, the Green Party in 2018 endorsed the call for a National Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans (HR 40). Continue reading
