- A Denver city council representative seeking re-election proposed taxing “White-led businesses” and redistributing the wealth to minorities as reparations for the harm of capitalism.
- “Capitalism was built on stolen land, stolen labor and stolen resources. And a check today could not undo the cumulative impact of generations of that stolen wealth in all of those categories,” Denver councilwoman Candi CdeBaca said during a political forum Friday.
- CdeBaca said there were existing structures “that could be flipped” to compensate for land, labor and resources allegedly lost due to racism.
