The Department of Reconciliation would augment — not supplant — an indispensable truth commission to set the twisted history of invidious discrimination straight. It would supplement — not supersede — a fair and just redress process…

Broadly, the pre-eminent goal of this executive body would be the elimination and prevention of systemic, institutionalized racism, as well as other forms of invidious discrimination against protected classes. Simply stated, the Department of Reconciliation would help address systemic and institutionalized transgressions against people in our country because of who they are or appear to be. Its budget would be the equivalent of not less than 10 percent of the Defense Department’s budget to ensure that the department is continuously funded. With centuries of racism and invidious discrimination to reconcile and a goal of preventing future racism and invidious discrimination, the department would not sunset. This would be comparable to other executive departments, such as Labor and Defense.
