This is an excellent idea! It's so simple, you could publish it on a chart.
At the top of the chart we could have ethnicity. With "white" at the highest rate and as you move away from "white" the tax rate would decrease. Of
course the first 5 years of this tax, no minorities would receive anything. The money would go to standing up a Federal agency in charge of
determining all taxpayers ethnic make up. We need to be fair.
Next on the chart maybe we go with "gender". "Male" would be the highest rate and as you move away from male, the tax rate would decrease. We would
need to determine Federally recognized genders. Last count I read was 58. If we have our 58 legal genders then all the tax payer has to do is prove
they are one of them. Should be pretty cut and dried.
But why stop here? This is working out pretty well. I say we add religion to the chart. Lord knows how oppressive religions have been throughout
history. Let's make thing right. We can top the chart with "Protestant" and "Catholic". As we move away from these bastions of oppression, the tax
rate would lower. The order of the religions/belief systems moving towards the bottom of the spectrum is obvious to anyone. Right? To be fair, even
atheists or agnostics still need to pull their weight. So let's say 1%. Sounds good.
After this, I say we can add in a political affiliation tax. Hear me out. This is simple. When you go into the voting booth and insert your Federal
Ethnicity ID Card, whatever candidates/ballot initiatives you choose are uploaded to your voter profile. The more privileged a candidate or initiative
you choose, the higher the tax. Heck, since the Federal Ethnicity ID Card is also tied to your bank account, funds can be withdrawn immediately.
Of course this is just at the Federal level. States and municipalities could take advantage of this too. Stopping off on the way home from work to get
some milk and bread? All the cashier has to do is enter the price of the items, your ethnicity, your gender, your religion, and your political
affiliation. BAMO! Total cost is too easy.
Now originally, these taxes were intended as a form of reparation for whomever has suffered negative privilege. They remain that way even though
everyone pays. It's simple math really. A white, male, heterosexual, catholic, republican pays the highest tax rate. An aboriginal, pangender,
androgynous, druid, anarco-capitalist would pay the least. That difference is the reparation!
