A Chicago suburb votes on a key reparations program... March 22, 2021 [View Online]( | [Sign Up]( [Daily Brew]( [Masterworks](style=%22border-bottom:none!important;%22) Good morning. Raise your hand if you also Googled “Where is Oral Roberts?” this weekend. The school became the second #15 seed in NCAA tournament history to advance to the Sweet 16. The first, if you can remember back to 2013, was Florida “Dunk City” Gulf Coast. Oral Roberts is in Tulsa, OK, by the way—we'll save you the new tab. MARKETS YTD PERFORMANCE NASDAQ 13,215.24 + 2.54% S&P 3,913.10 + 4.18% DOW 32,627.97 + 6.60% GOLD 1,738.00 - 8.60% 10-YR 1.709% + 79.00 bps OIL 60.87 + 25.71% *As of market close. [Here's what these numbers mean](. - Covid: Cases are now [rising]( in 21 states following a loooong decline. Officials are concerned about states loosening restrictions too early and the circulation of highly contagious strains, including one that was first found in Brazil called P1. - Nation: Vigils were held in cities across the country to remember the victims of the Atlanta shootings and to [call out racism]( against Asian-Americans. SOCIAL JUSTICE [A Landmark Moment for Reparations]( [Black Lives Matter sign]( KAMIL KRZACZYNSKI/AFP via Getty Images Today, the city council of Evanston, IL, will vote to [begin distributing $400,000 in grants]( to Black residents. It would be the first instance of a US city issuing reparations for decades of racist government policies. Who’s eligible? Black people who lived in Evanston between 1919 and 1969 (or those whose ancestors did), as well as Black residents who can show they were subject to housing discrimination by the city government. They’ll receive [up to $25,000]( to put toward housing, such as buying or upgrading a home. - The money will come from a sales tax on recreational marijuana, which was recently legalized in Illinois. How we got here Since the Civil War ended in 1865, reparations have been floated as a [potential solution]( to the racial wealth gap that has resulted from centuries of discriminatory laws. For instance, in a process known as “redlining,” banks would deny mortgages to Black people in certain neighborhoods—preventing them from accumulating wealth by owning a home. Fast forward to 2019. Evanston, a Chicago suburb and home to Northwestern University, voted to create the Reparations Fund to begin making amends for its past policies that denied wealth to its Black residents, who currently make up 16% of the total population. The city pledged to give out $10 million over 10 years. For some, that’s not close to enough A group of Black residents argue that Evanston’s reparations program is more like Reparations Lite for its narrow focus on housing assistance and cash payments: "If we're doing reparations, let's do reparations right," said Alderwoman Cicely Fleming in a statement. "Let's not short-change Black people on something they've been waiting centuries for." Proponents say it’s a good start for grappling with systemic racism, and could serve as a model for other cities, including neighboring Chicago, Providence, RI, and Asheville, NC, that are also considering reparations programs.    mailto:?subject=Check%20out%20this%20story%20from%20Morning%20Brew%21&body=Evanston%2C%20IL%2C%20Votes%20on%20Historic%20Reparations%20Grants%20to%20Black%20Residents%3A%20https%3A%2F%2Fwww.morningbrew.com%2Fdaily%2Fstories%2F2021%2F03%2F21%2Fevanston-il-votes-historic-reparations-grants-black-residents%0A%0AWant%20more%20great%20content%3F%20Subscribe%20to%20Daily%20Brew%20%E2%80%94%20Delivering%20the%20latest%20business%20news%20from%20Wall%20St.%20to%20Silicon%20Valley%2C%20daily.%0Ahttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.morningbrew.com%2Fdaily%2Fr%2F%3Fkid%3D4904f90a%26utm_source%3Demail_share%0A TRANSPORTATION [Merger on the Orient Express]( [Canadian Pacific merger ] George Rose/Getty Images Yesterday, railroad operator Canadian Pacific [announced plans]( to acquire Kansas City Southern for ~$25 billion.  This is a big deal, not just because it’s a deal that is big (the biggest M&A announced so far this year), but also because if regulators green-light it, the new company will have the first US-Mexico-Canada railroad. - Kansas City Southern’s routes run through Mexico and Texas to...Kansas City. - Canadian Pacific, which has a network that runs across Canada and some Northern US states, [has been eyeing]( its railroad rival for years as a way to extend its own southern reach. The deal may have some trouble with that regulatory green light; Canadian railroads have historically hit antitrust speed bumps in efforts to buy US companies. Zoom out: The deal is a bet that North American trade will come roaring back as economies and factories flicker back to life. The USMCA trade agreement took effect last July and is expected to boost trade among the three countries.    mailto:?subject=Check%20out%20this%20story%20from%20Morning%20Brew%21&body=What%20This%20Railroad%20Merger%20Means%20for%20North%20American%20Trade%3A%20https%3A%2F%2Fwww.morningbrew.com%2Fdaily%2Fstories%2F2021%2F03%2F21%2Frailroad-merger-means-north-american-trade%0A%0AWant%20more%20great%20content%3F%20Subscribe%20to%20Daily%20Brew%20%E2%80%94%20Delivering%20the%20latest%20business%20news%20from%20Wall%20St.%20to%20Silicon%20Valley%2C%20daily.%0Ahttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.morningbrew.com%2Fdaily%2Fr%2F%3Fkid%3D4904f90a%26utm_source%3Demail_share%0A HEALTH [Covid’s Cancel Culture]( [A dog is pictured on the Olympic Rings displayed at the Japan Sport Olym...]( Charly Triballeau/Getty Images A year into the global pandemic, the coronavirus continues to cause calendar chaos. The Tokyo Olympics will [bar]( international spectators from attending the event, which is set to start on July 23. Typically about 10%–20% of Olympics tickets go to international fans, and the Tokyo games had already sold 600,000 to overseas buyers, per the NYT. March Madness had its first Covid-related forfeit: Saturday’s game between VCU and Oregon in the NCAA tournament was declared a “[no-contest](” after VCU reported multiple positive Covid-19 tests. Oregon will advance and play Iowa today. Miami Beach declared a state of emergency and [imposed a curfew]( in its entertainment district for 72 hours. The reason? Spring breakers have simply overwhelmed the area.

The takeaway? Art investing has hit the mainstream. But perhaps putting your money in real, tangible art by the blue-chips makes more sense for you. For one thing, contemporary art has outperformed the S&P by 172% from 2000–2020, according to data from [Masterworks](. They were the first platform to let you invest in paintings by the likes of Basquiat, Kaws, and Haring. But what about returns? They’ve got that too: They sold their first Banksy work for a cool 32% annualized return to investors. With results like that, it’s no wonder there are over 25,000 people on the waitlist.

If Tesla used cars to spy in China or anywhere, we will get shut down.” During a virtual appearance at the China Development Forum, Elon Musk [addressed reports]( that the Chinese government banned the use of Teslas at its facilities over fears their cameras could send sensitive information back to the US.
