Call for Justice and Equity
This day, January 20, 2021, in the state and city of New York, New York, I, Theresa, a lawful citizen of the United States of America, make clear, before God, and all persons, that a Call for Justice and Equity for law-abiding Black American descendants of U.S. government sanctioned slavery, still living, has been made in clear and certain terms to the elected and non-elected public servants who are benefitted and supported by the United States to perform public functions, and to protect and defend our civil rights and liberties.
I make clear that this Call has been made concerning the treatment of Black American descendants of U.S. government sanctioned slavery, and not Black individuals within the United States generally. This specification, description, and detail serves multiple functions, including to make clear that the function of this Call is to redress the unrecompensed wrongs committed by the U.S. against specified identified citizens, to ensure the feasibility of such Call, and to ascertain and limit class members to specified and identified aggrieved persons.
Such Call is warranted and justified by the principles which the U.S. claims are foundational truths on which this nation is built, as well as the calls for justice, redress, and aid already extended by the U.S. to persons who have encountered and endured the same harm as class members, but who are not U.S. citizens – thus, there is U.S. precedent on the matter – and, the U.S. is neither a named party or participant, nor does the U.S. have a duty to intervene where it has already rendered such assistance. The U.S., under no duty or obligation specified by our law, has extended civil and human rights protections to individuals who are not citizens of the United States.
It is a recognized actionable harm by U.S. standards and advisory opinions to subordinate and subject human beings to substandard conditions, particularly if under the care of a recognized patriarch, matriarch, or overseer. There is a duty for an individual, entity, or government in a position of guardianship or oversight to act responsibly towards individuals within their care (U.S. standard). Furthermore, the U.S. requires evidence of a patriarch’s ability and, in particular, resources to facilitate or allow additional human beings to enter the patriarch’s patronage before a determination is rendered concerning if such facilitation should be allowed. However, the United States has seemingly wholly exempted itself from this standard and determination of care analysis. Without a clear plan, strategy, or evidence of feasibility, the United States continues to expand efforts to re-settle, allow, or permit new immigrants on the basis of hardships which the U.S. itself is guilty of perpetrating against its own citizens absent any evidence that the United States is able to perform and provide due care without neglecting existing obligations. An analysis of the effects of this ill-fated, unplanned, gratuitous and sudden adoption of non-obligatory responsibility by the United States upon its own citizenry is wholly absent. Thus, the United States has agreed to extend to immigrants not yet on American soil aid, protection, and resources which its own citizens presently lack. Further, no due diligence was performed by the U.S. government to understand the impact or to address the consequences of this wholly voluntary position.
For this reason, I must oppose the hypocritical position of the U.S. on immigration until this defect is cured. The United States continues to subject Black Americans, who are not immigrants, to a denial of civil and human rights while announcing the nation’s borders are open to all who face persecution outside of U.S. territories. This position is wholly untenable: if the United States is able to cure defects and violations of civil and human rights it must first begin at home.
There is no need for the United States to ask for further evidence of its racist, anti-Black American activities, because Black Americans have written and reported at length, using the appropriate, established and formal method of recording, reporting, and demanding redress. The United States need only to stop obstructing and hindering the lawful redress and recompense which has been lawfully requested by its law-abiding Black citizens in compliance with U.S. laws, regulations, and procedures.
Furthermore, in addition to calling for Justice and Equity, I would also like to make clear that this Call for Justice and Equity and all past and present calls has not been waived or withdrawn: justice, equity, and redress is demanded in full, in accord with the laws and regulations of the United States.
I am not seeking special or preferred treatment for Black American descendants of U.S. sanctioned slavery. I am demanding the minimum and basic treatment which all humans deserve, and which the United States has extended to all humans – except for Black Americans, who continue to be denied equitable status and treatment by the United States.
A good and just patriarch must ensure the just and equitable treatment of all where that duty exists. This must be the first and foremost priority of the United States: to faithfully execute duties in accord with U.S. law, and to protect its citizens.
This is the only way that America – as a democracy – can thrive.
Respectfully, allied in equity,
