The Biden administration is using the legacy of the Freedman's Bank which was plundered and looted by greedy White politicians during, and after the Reconstruction era. Black American Freedmen deposited upwards of $57 million in hard earned savings into the Freedman's Savings Bank only to have their hard earned savings stolen and the bank ultimately failing without Freedmen being paid back one dime. Today, that 57 million would be a little more than $9 billion dollars, the same amount that the Biden administration will give to every one but the descendants of those Freedmen. The Biden Administration is attempting to use the Freedmen Bank's legacy to implement financial investments into "minority" groups which usually excludes the neediest Black Americans. 

This egregious act of using the plight of Black American Freedmen is usufruct. We, the descendants of the Freedmen demand that the Dept. of Treasury repurpose its policy to only allocate funds to the Freedmen of today or, discontinue using the name of the Freedman's Bank under the guise that Black Americans stand to benefit when in fact, immigrants and minorities will be its main recipients. 

This is a call to action from the United Sons & Daughters of Freedmen to take a stand against this blatant act of disrespect. Getting the Biden administration and the Dept. of Treasury to either change its policy, or discontinue the usage of the name of our Freedmen ancestors, will play a major part in taking back our narrative.
