The United States of America has a long and sorted history of its mistreatment and/or neglect of people of color and minorities, namely African Americans and descendants of the African Diaspora.  For centuries the people have attempted to sway the government in support of the people to little avail.  Dr. Martin Luthor King Jr. was assassinated 52 years ago and there have been few major changes towards the progress of equality since.  Minority youth still receive substandard education due in large part to racially and socio-economically motivated districting.  Minority neighborhoods remain food deserts.  Affordable housing remains limited.  The adoption of a living wage continues to be rejected.  The war on drugs persists in disproportionately incarcerating minorities.  Police Brutality persists largely unpunished even when filmed and broadcast on international television.  Nations around the world have watched and remarked at the state of race relations in the US to the extent that various governments such as that of the Bahamas have issued travel warnings and advisories against the United States for the treatment of Black People.  We must seek international recognition, sovereignty, and protections for P.O.C.
