  • "The Black Tax": How America stole $275B from african-Americans

    17 MAG 2024 · In this eye-opening podcast, we explore the hidden injustices buried within America's tax system and their profound impact on African American communities. Based on the groundbreaking book "The Black Tax: 150 Years of Theft, Exploitation, and Dispossession in America" by historian Andrew W. Kahrl, we delve into the staggering financial toll of systemic overtaxation and discriminatory practices that have stripped Black Americans of their wealth and property, perpetuating the racial wealth gap. Through a recent interview with Kahrl, we gain deeper insights into the evolution of this inequity, from the overt bureaucratic racism of the Jim Crow era to the more insidious structural inequality embedded in modern tax systems. We also examine the regressive nature of property taxes, the co-opting of anti-tax revolts by right-wing interests, and the flawed tax reform experiment of Proposition 13 in California. As we explore potential solutions, such as a universal home tax exemption and a federal wealth tax, we highlight the need for systemic change at the national level to address these persistent inequities. We also showcase grassroots efforts like Black Land Services, an organization combating land loss among African Americans in the South Carolina Sea Islands. Join us as we shed light on the hidden mechanisms of racial and economic injustice in America's tax system and issue a call for a national dialogue and structural reforms to combat the extreme economic disadvantages burdening African American households.
