A Black nurse who worked at the same hospital for 20 years was summoned to a meeting with the medical director and told she was fired.

You won't believe what happened next.

After the medical director told the nurse she was terminated, an employee asked her, "You wanna talk smack now?"

The nurse looked worried as she saw another employee filming on their cell phone. The nurse turned to leave, but just then the doctor said, "I know you're closing on a house, so we want to give you some things."

T.I. held up a baseball cap with the word "Owner$hip" on the front, before urging his followers to buy a "patch of dirt" in their neighborhood. "It ain't got to have a house on it," he said. "Just buy it. Just buy it and hold it.

The city plans to generate $500,000 and $750,000 through marijuana tax revenue each year. The city can also receive outside donations to the reparations fund.

Robin Rue Simmons, a black alderman who represents the city's historically Black Fifth Ward, says the fund will benefit residents affected by the war on drugs.

"Our community was damaged due to the war on drugs and marijuana convictions," she told The Washington Post. "This is a chance to correct that. Our disadvantage and discrimination has continued beyond outlawing Jim Crow and beyond enslavement."

The new reparations fund will allow Black residents to remain in their neighborhood. High property taxes in the wealthy North Shore suburb forced Black residents out of their homes.

Simmons added that the reparations fund will help families with a down payment on a home that they couldn't otherwise afford.

A meeting will be held on Dec. 11 to work out the details.
