CdeBaca wants every business in Denver to be assessed in order to determine the skin color of its owners. Business owners determined to have skin that is too light in color would then be taxed at a much higher rate than businesses owned by people with dark skin.
Race-based taxation of the kind CdeBaca wants to see implemented in Denver is, of course, illegal and unconstitutional. Even so CdeBaca is pushing for it, having presented the scheme at a recent forum before the Greater Metro Denver Ministerial Alliance.

On June 6, CdeBaca will face a runoff against challenger Darrel Watson, who is also running for the seat representing District 9, a section of North Denver that includes the neighborhoods of Clayton, Cole, Elyria-Swansea, Five Points, Globeville, Skyland, and Whittier.
Unfortunately for local voters, Watson is hardly any better than CdeBaca, as he, too, is a white-hating communist who believes that local white people need to be punished in order to support race-based reparations for blacks.
Watson's plan differs slightly in that he wants more private business investment in "underserved," meaning non-white, communities. CdeBaca's plan is even more radically unconstitutional.
"Capitalism was built on stolen land, stolen labors, and stolen resources," CdeBaca, who identifies as a Democratic Socialist, complained at the forum.
CdeBaca says that she believes the creation of more business improvement districts, or BIDs, could be used to enact her proposed race-based tax on white-owned businesses in not just North Denver but all across the city.
"You could be collecting those extra taxes from white-led business all over the city and redistributing them to black and brown-owned businesses," CdeBaca stated – you can watch her speak below:

Denver's racial makeup is barely above 50 percent white (non-Hispanic), as of this writing. And in District 9 where CdeBaca is running, whites appear to be the minority.
What this means, of course, is that communists like CdeBaca who are pushing anti-white policies and claiming that they support "minorities" will soon no longer be able to use that word to describe people with black and brown skin, who, when combined together, are quickly becoming the majority while whites become the new minority.
Does this mean that once the scales tip in that direction that white-owned businesses will be the new "underrepresented" group deserving of reparations? At what point will minority whites start receiving all these special benefits since they are rather quickly being replaced by "minorities?"
"Social decay is caused by the government," one person wrote in response to CdeBaca's racist plan. "They divide us by pigmentation, sexuality, economic status, and political ideology, & then they pit us against one another, as seen here."
Another wrote that this is "blatant communism," not to mention reverse racism that is blatantly unconstitutional and highly offensive and marginalizing towards light-skinned people.
