Whitesboro is an unincorporated community located within Middle Township in Cape May County, New Jersey, United States. Whitesboro was founded about 1901 by the Equitable Industrial Association, which had prominent black American investors including Paul Laurence Dunbar, the educator Booker T. Washington and George Henry White, the leading investor and namesake. White and his fellow entrepreneurs wanted to create a self-reliant community for blacks without the discrimination faced by black residents of the southern states. 1. Self-Determination. The Town of Whitesboro must be able to make decisions that impact it for itself. Direct Representation. Only the Town of Whitesboro Can Protect the Interests of the Town of Whitesboro. 2. Taxation without Representation. Economic Development Deals Are Done in Back Offices Without the Input of the People of Whitesboro. Legislation Is Passed Without the Consent of the Governed. No Vote. No Voice. 3. The Zip Code Revolution. The US Postal Service and the Towns of Middle and Rio Grande Have Conspired to Take Away the Zip Code of the Town of Whitesboro. When the Town's Zip Code Is Taken, The Town of Whitesboro Becomes A "Ghost" Town and a sub-district of the Town of Middle. Declaration of Independence for The Town of Whitesboro "We hold these truths to be sacred & undeniable; that all men are created equal & independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent & inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, & liberty, & the pursuit of happiness.." No truer words are written and with a warrant of consideration by the modern New Jersey citizen. When burdened with infringements of foreign governments, a citizen, a people, and a town deserve to set themselves free from excessive taxation, a lack of legal protections, and a surrender of land to interests that disadvantage the feeble, the poor, and the misinformed. Civil Rights Leaders Booker T. Washington and Rep. George Henry White overcame the Jim Crow politics and cultural prejudices of their era to build the Town of Whitesboro in March 1902. At a time when Cape May County campaigned to remove African-American residents, the Whitesboro investors created an opportunity for American citizens to economically solidify their well-being and govern rightfully as ascribed by the Founding Fathers. Yet, today, our citizenry watches as external forces rule without transparency, tax without restraint, and pirate our lands by financial and judicial means. Even, internally, non-profit organizations make governmental decisions and the people have no insight or involvement. On this day, inspired by Jefferson's words and Washington's and White's dreams, joyfully, the good people of the Town of Whitesboro declares its liberty, freedom, and independence from all threats, both foreign and domestic, to the sanctity of its existence as a sovereign entity.
