(Our Terms) Non-Negotiable
We say what we mean, and we mean what we say.
At Bella Caveat, Black women’s experience with equity, justice, and redress in the United States, as well as the healing process which must occur for us to move onward (from disparate failings of American society to redress the enduring crises created by systemic racist American policies, which today still enslave Black humans, while the U.S. plays doctor, policeman, and human rights lecturer to the world)—will always be central to our mission.
“We do not evade our responsibility to fight for equity, justice, and redress for Black women.”
All of our actions are filtered through the lens of ‘how will this impact Black women’ in the United States – and across the globe. We can truly hold our heads high (integrity in tact) when we say we value Black women – in measurable, concrete, definable and life-changing ways. We are more than hashtags, promises, and listening tours. We are leaders, presently peerless, in this mission, and we put the well-being of Black women above our personal and financial interest each and every day.
Presently, our leadership is in active litigation, fighting for equity, justice, redress, and recompense for injuries inflicted upon Black women by entities and individuals knowledgeable about the affect and effect of racism, violence, sexual violence, gender discrimination, and injustice against Black women in the United States. We are relentless in our pursuit of outcomes that benefit and humanize Black women. We do not back down, or come to terms with injustice. We are focused in this singular mission; now is the time to redress issues which disproportionately and disparately target Black women – not just women generally. If all women were truly equal in the United States, all women would rush to fight for redress for Black women.
“However, this is far from the case. In 2020, Black female descendants of U.S. sanctioned slavery continue to be disparately denied justice, redress, and recompense – for injuries committed today, in the United States – by groups organized the United States that claim to fight for women’s rights, human rights, and civil rights.”
Our commitment to justice for Black women in public legal forums has made us a target for those who wish to protect, insulate, and further the status quo, which has diminished, denigrated, delayed, denied and obstructed justice for Black women in the United States for generations. These adversaries of justice and equity have overwhelmingly gotten away with treating claims by Black women disparately adverse when compared with similar groups of a different race or nationality. These attacks, at times distracting and time consuming, will not ultimately hinder the good work that we do or our commitment to you. However, they do serve as a reminder that we must be just as determined as those willing to violate our laws to protect systems and individuals who deny justice, equity, and redress to Black women.
Prior to Bella Caveat, Black women’s claims were disparately ignored, dismissed, denied, delayed, disparaged, and largely adversely decided in the United States. So, we created a brand-new ecosystem of support for Black female descendants of U.S. sanctioned slavery, not reliant upon existing systems or entities to suddenly stop discrimination against Black women.
Most of the individuals we have sued or formally reported work(ed) for institutions whose stated mission, goal, or legal duty is to protect, defend, and uphold the laws of the United States, and the rights of the People. Hence, we are ever reminded that injustice and discrimination against Black women has endured by and through the efforts of those denying justice from within institutions of ‘justice’ – so, this injustice is not accidental or incidental but protected and furthered by structural permission from within. We have had to report a white male federal judge – who, online, is accredited with having once worked with a famed civil rights union as part of our mission to expose and demand accountability for every denial and deprivation of civil and human rights.
We are fighting for you!
Those who wish to see injustice continue will oppose our worthy contributions wherever our business, members or leadership is credited. So, Bella Caveat will continue to work in stealth mode – using pseudonyms, unpublished entities, and largely limiting our social media presence and interactions – until we are able to share with you more openly about all of the places and initiatives where we are actively involved.
We can’t wait to share with you!
