The Reparationist Collective of Black Pact, BLM Minnesota, Concerned Black
American Citizens, and (ADOS DMV). December 7, 2020


At the signing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, despite having invested more than 100% of
our fair share of “sweat equity” for over 250 years into the United States, Black

Americans owned just 1% of the nation's wealth. Now following a multitude of
Democratic majorities since, and here the victory announcement of Joe Biden on
November 7th, that number remains unchanged.


The average white household has a net worth of $171,00 while the average Black
household has a mere net worth of only $17,000. This disparity, rooted in the United
States’ original sin of chattel slavery, has yielded a massive racial wealth gap.
Fueled by past apologies and commitments (H.R. 194, July 29, 2008), and hope for
change, Black voters turned out at a rate of 90% for the Democrats and are rightly
credited with handing the election to Biden on this, his third attempt. During his
November 7th victory speech, Joe Biden “looked into the eyes” of Black Americans and
made this SPECIFIC PROMISE: "African Americans have always had my back and I’ll
have yours”. On January 20th & 21st, 2021, The Reparationist Collective will march on
Washington, DC to ensure he keeps that promise:

“WE DELIVERED, NOW IT’S TIME TO COLLECT!”

We demand payment of the United States debt of reparations to the descendants of
American (as of 1776) chattel slavery in the form of multi-generational direct cash
payments, and including, but not limited to tax-exempt status, the elimination of the
mean Black-White wealth gap and the elimination of healthcare outcome disparities.
We further demand an Economic Empowerment executive order, akin to those currently
in place for the Latinx and AAPI, in the FIRST 100 DAYS tasked to empower Descendants
Of American Chattel Slavery to improve the quality of their lives, raise the standard of
living of their families and communities, and more fully participate in our economy by
eliminating the racial wealth gap.


Join us to be a part of these historical direct actions on January 20th and 21st, to make
sure Joe Biden delivers on his promise via executive order in the FIRST 100 DAYS!
Paving the way to enacting, reparations and comprehensive restorative legislation for
Descendants of American Chattel Slavery, aka African Americans.
“WE DELIVERED, NOW IT’S TIME TO COLLECT!”
