California Gov. Gavin Newsom has enacted legislation that will return the rights of a formerly Black-owned beachfront property — that was illegally seized a century ago — to its descendants. What are your thoughts?

Debbie Sullivan, Compton, Calif.
The city of Manhattan Beach has never been inclusive for Black people even though it’s located in Los Angeles County, but those days are over. That land is worth $75 million now and they gotta give it back. Justice.

Patrick Jackson, Chicago
This is being reported on other news sites and white folks are furious. Every comment is a white person weaponizing Native Americans’ so-called struggle, not willing to understand most of us are indigenous to this land to begin with.

It’s one of many pieces of property that should be returned. Kudos to Governor Newsom. It’s a step in the right direction, but just a step in a marathon of corrective measures.

Dorine Roby, San Francisco
This has been an ongoing article in California media outlets. I remember when the article was first posted earlier this year. The backhanded, ignorant and sometimes racist comments about this family retrieving their plot of land back was just outrageous! I’m glad Newsom finally signed the bill to remedy this situation.

Carolyn Jackson, Washington, D.C.
They’re so busy snatching and grabbing what doesn’t belong to them just because they want it. So now they have to give it back! I hope they also pay restitution for cheating the descendants out of their inheritance for so long.
