Petition on Crime of Genocide against African People in the United States
CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL PETITION. Lea la petición en español We, the undersigned, charge that the United States government has historically committed the crime of genocide against African people inside its borders, and continues to do so today, often with the complicity of many U.S. citizens. It is in the interest of all freedom-loving peoples worldwide to unite with African people, colonized within the borders of the United States, in our struggle for our basic human rights of freedom from state-imposed violence and oppression and for self-determination and liberation with economic and political control over our lives and communities. We will show that despite the heroic struggle of African people for our civil and constitutional rights during the 1960s, African people exist today under conditions in which the U.S. state powers not only fail to protect our health and well-being as expected under full citizenship, but continually inflict state or state-supported violence and terror on us. Although millions of African people perished on the slave ships on the journey from Africa to the Americas, and though millions of African people were slaughtered by European and American colonizers throughout Africa, and though hundreds of millions of Indigenous people of the Western Hemisphere were murdered by Europeans, it is notable that the word genocide did not exist in the English lexicon until its coinage in 1944 in response to the Nazi government’s mass murder of European Jewry. This petition recognizes that the term genocide is applicable to Africans in the US for the conditions they face historically and today. This petition is based on these conventions of International Law: 1. The United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide;2. The United Nations Charter; 3. The United Nations Declaration of Human Rights; 4. The International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights; 5. The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights; 6. The International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination. Evidence: In this petition we present a synopsis of documented evidence proving the crime of genocide by the United States government against African people. The examples presented apply to every aspect of the definition of genocide and fit the punishable acts of genocide as defined by the U.N. Convention. The U.S. government is responsible for mass murders, mass and discriminatory imprisonment, and oppressive conditions in nearly every aspect of life, including state-sanctioned violence and murders, education, family life, reproduction, employment, healthcare and freedom of political assembly for African people in the U.S. See the full petition for the full documentation of evidence: CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL PETITION. Lea la petición en español Demands: 1. Recognition by the international community and progressive and friendly states and peoples that European and United States powers committed genocide against African people during the times of colonial occupation, kidnapping, enslavement and exploitation, and that genocide against African people continues today inside of the United States. 2. Support for an International Tribunal to make judgment on the crimes of genocide against African people and solidarity with African self-determination. 3. Reparations to African people estimated at $14 trillion to African people inside the US alone, according to studies conducted at the University of Connecticut. 4. The right to self-determination and the liberation and unification of Africa and African people on the continent of Africa and those who have been forcibly dispersed around the world. 5. Black Community Control of Police inside the U.S. and the end to end to U.S. colonial military occupation of the black community. 6. The creation of an International monitoring body covering the daily police violence against African people in the U.S. CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL PETITION. Lea la petición en español

40 ACRES AND A MULE REPARATIONS FOR MOST HIGH CHILDREN
INTRODUCTION Harriet Tubman became famous as a “conductor” on the Underground Railroad during the turbulent 1850s. Born a slave on Maryland’s eastern shore, she endured the harsh existence of a field hand, including brutal beatings. In 1849 she fled slavery, leaving her husband and family behind in order to escape. Despite a bounty on her head, she returned to the South at least 19 times to lead her family and hundreds of other slaves to freedom via the Underground Railroad. Tubman also served as a scout, spy and nurse during the Civil War. In 1849 Tubman fled Maryland, leaving behind her free husband of five years, John Tubman, and her parents, sisters, and brothers. “Mah people mus’ go free,” her constant refrain, suggests a determination uncommon among even the most militant slaves. She returned to the South at least nineteen times to lead her family and hundreds of other slaves to freedom via the Underground Railroad. Utilizing her native intelligence and drawing on her boundless courage, she eluded bounty hunters seeking a reward for her capture, which eventually went as high as forty thousand dollars. She never lost a fugitive or allowed one to turn back. Did You Know? Harriet Tubman's birthname was Araminta Ross. Two things sustained her: the pistol at her side and her faith in God. She would not hesitate to use the pistol in self-defense, but it was also a symbol to instruct slaves, making it clear that “dead Negroes tell no tales.” Timid slaves seemed to find courage in her presence; no one ever betrayed her. She affirmed her faith in God in her statement, “I always tole God, I’m gwine to hole stiddy on to you, an’ you’ve got to see me trou [through].” Tubman collaborated with John Brown in 1858 in planning his raid on Harpers Ferry. The two met in Canada where she told him all she knew of the Underground Railroad in the East. Advising him on the area in which he planned to operate, she promised to deliver aid from fugitives in the region. Brown’s admiration for her was immeasurable, and he wanted her to accompany him on the raid. Tubman planned to be present but was ill at the time and could not participate. Tubman’s resistance to slavery did not end with the outbreak of the Civil War. Her services as nurse, scout, and spy were solicited by the Union government. For more than three years she nursed the sick and wounded in Florida and the Carolinas, tending whites and blacks, soldiers and contrabands. Tubman was a short woman without distinctive features. With a bandanna on her head and several front teeth missing, she moved unnoticed through rebel territory. This made her invaluable as a scout and spy under the command of Col. James Montgomery of the Second Carolina Volunteers. As leader of a corps of local blacks, she made several forays into rebel territory, collecting information. Armed with knowledge of the location of cotton warehouses, ammunition depots, and slaves waiting to be liberated, Colonel Montgomery made several raids in southern coastal areas. Tubman led the way on his celebrated expedition up the Combahee River in June 1863. For all of her work, Tubman was paid only two hundred dollars over a three-year period and had to support herself by selling pies, gingerbread, and root beer. After the war, Tubman returned to Auburn, New York, and continued to help blacks forge new lives in freedom. She cared for her parents and other needy relatives, turning her residence into the Home for Indigent and Aged Negroes. Lack of money continued to be a pressing problem, and she financed the home by selling copies of her biography and giving speeches. Her most memorable appearance was at the organizing meeting of the National Association of Colored Women in 1896 in Washington, D.C. Two generations came together to celebrate the strength of black women and to continue their struggle for a life of dignity and respect. Harriet Tubman, the oldest member present, was the embodiment of their strength and their struggle.

This is more than history this is a Biblical moment that our ancestors pave the way for us to have I am being led by the Holy Spirit to start this movement of getting us reparations so that we can heal ourselves from the wounds of our ancestors pain and affliction. I can only imagine to change that this could bring to the people of the Lost tribes I pray that everyone takes heed and understands that this is the time the first will be the last and the last will be the first praise the most high for His blessings Samara Yeshaya

AFRICAN-AMERICANS SHOULD NOT BE TAXED
As a Black person residing in the United States of America, I have faced racism and bigotry throughout my life. I have learned that as a Black WOMAN in the U.S.A., I have had to work twice as hard as my non-Black counterparts to prove myself equally intelligent and capable, both in the school system and in the workplace. The majority of Blacks who reside in the U.S. are descendants of slaves who were brought to this country against their will during the evil period in American history known as slavery. Although slavery officially ended on December 6, 1865, Blacks have continued to suffer a myriad of hardships. Stiffer penalties for black offenders, redlining black neighborhoods, purposefully leaving many black, American achievements out of school textbooks, having a European beauty standard thrust upon the American psyche as the only acceptable beauty that exists, and a host of other injustices are just some of the reasons why no one can honestly claim that racism is even close to being over. Reparations for slavery has been, and continues to be a viable solution to right some of the wrongs that blacks continue to face in this country. However, this proposed solution continues to be ignored. I propose a new solution. If the Government does not want to give blacks the reparations that we deserve, then we should not be required to pay federal or state taxes. This country was largely built on the backs of slaves who did not ask to come here and were, in no way, compensated for their free labor. Abolishing federal and state taxes for black Americans, and refunding us the money that we have already been forced to pay in taxes thus far, is a step in the right direction towards making up for the horrendous slavery our ancestors endured, and the economic disadvantages that we are still made to suffer.

African American "New Deal" Petition
Request for a $4 billion trust, paid out in the form of; 0% interest for 5 years - guaranteed business loans for small and start-up African American minority ventures. The need for this petition comes out of understanding the historic struggle of the African American people. By knowing the history, we can see what advancements have been achieved and what areas still needs to be gained... But, for petition sake, the history will be kept brief... From 1620 to 1860, the captive African descendants on American soil endured the harsh brutality of slavery for 240 years. In 1861, the Civil War was fought and the “Negro” received Freedom!... With this freedom “Negroes” were to receive equal rights, proper education, and 40 acres + a mule (resources)... This was an executive order by Abraham Lincoln, but after his assassination, it was vetoed by Andrew Johnson. Negroes received liberty, but were still subject to separation, open racism, unequal laws, oppression, and murder on a daily basis. This continued for 100 years, then, in the 1960’s, the Equal Rights Movement lead by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. resulted in the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The African American received equal voting rights, access to better education, and more opportunity! However, from the 1970s thru today, African Americans have experienced a strategic systemic racism... Example; During the 1980’s, under the Reagan/Bush administration, black communities nationwide were funneled Cocaine / Crack from Nicaragua. This action severely weakened community development by poisoning residents and by targeting the dealers! Hundreds of thousands have died from overdoses and tens of thousands serve long prison terms for selling it. This is but one example... Racial Profiling, Police Brutality, Mass Incarceration, Welfare Dependance, Medical Exploitation, and Eugenics (Sterilization & Population Control) are a few other methods! Despite systemic racism; the desire, imagination, and ingenuity of the African American people remains strong. We have plenty of innovations, inventions, and business ventures just yearning to be realized! The problem is... we lack the resources to make our aspirations of building strong communities a reality. Remember, those resources from Lincoln were vetoed... we never got them! 40 acres + a mule, for that time, represented the resources needed for a basic farming business. Reparations are long overdue!... And a form of monetary endowment is absolutely necessary!... But we are not asking for a handout! What the African American currently has is Liberty, Equal Rights, and Opportunity... what we lack are the resources needed to fund businesses! So, we propose a New Deal! Simple and straight forward... We the signers of this petition request of President Donald J. Trump, a $4 billion trust, paid out in the form of; 0% interest for 5 years - guaranteed business loans for small and start-up African American minority ventures. In addition, when paid back, the original loaned amounts go back into the trust and are made available to future minority ventures. We call on President Trump to finish what Abraham Lincoln started and to do what NO OTHER President has attempted since... Empower African Americans to build strong communities, strengthen the nation, leave a legacy for our children, and to help America to flourish!
Petition to United Nations
Return the Biblical Hebrew Israelites to Tel Arad
Noah had 3 sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. According to the Zondervan Compact Bible Dictionary (scholastic source), Ham is the "progenitor (father) of the dark races not the Negroes, but the Egyptians, Ethiopians, Libyans and the Canaanites (Gen. 10:6-20)" (pg. 213). The genealogies of Japheth can be found in the Bible in Genesis 10:2-5 KJV. According to a study done by T&T Clark (Library of Biblical Studies), in the book titled "Recovering The Daughter's Nakedness," it points out how Japheth is the forefather of the Europeans (pg. 7). The people calling themselves Jews today in the land of Israel are descendants of Ash'kenaz (hence the term Ashkenazi Jews), the son of Gomer (son of Japheth). This fact means that the current inhabitants of modern Jerusalem today are gentiles (Genesis 10:5 KJV) and not Semitic people. According to a DNA study performed by Dr. Eran Elhaik (professor at the prestigious John Hopkins University), the "Jews" that are currently in modern-day Jerusalem are not descendants of Abraham (SOURCE: http://educate-yourself.org/cn/texemarrskhazarianjews08mar13.shtml). Instead, those people (Gentiles) were placed in that land (Israel) by the United Nations in 1947 and six months later, on May 14, 1948, Jewish leaders in the region formed the state of Israel. All of the above took place according to a prophecy written about in the Bible in Genesis 9:27 KJV, which reads: "God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant." Prior to their placement in the land, those people (Gentiles) have never stepped foot in that land that is called Israel today. *** The So-Called Negroes Are the Biblical Hebrew Israelites *** The Negroes were scattered to the 4 corners of the earth according to a prophecy written in the Bible in Deuteronomy 28:68 KJV which reads: "And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you." This prophecy as well as all the other curses written in Deuteronomy 28:15-68 KJV was fulfilled during the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade (http://slavevoyages.org up until today. The slave trade involved the Arabs working with the native Africans in order to sell the Negroes to the Gre'cians (Europeans) as it is written in Joel 3:4-6 KJV which reads: "Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head; Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things: The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border." These curses fell upon the Negroes because of the disobedience of there forefathers toward the covenant which was foretold to Abraham in Genesis 15:13 KJV, which reads: "And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;" *** Reason the Hebrew Israelites Need to Return to their Land *** The so-called Negroes wish to return to their land to build the waste cities and to worship the Creator (HWHY) of the Heavens and the Earth (Genesis 1:1 KJV). According to scripture, the land of the so-called Negroes (Tribe of Judah) is in Tel Arad as it is written in Judges 1:16 KJV, which reads: "And the children of the Kenite, Moses’ father in law, went up out of the city of palm trees with the children of Judah into the wilderness of Judah, which lieth in the south of Arad; and they went and dwelt among the people." The land today is desolate as the scriptures prophesied that it would be in Leviticus 26:33 KJV which reads: "And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste." We accept our punishment (slavery) because we sinned against the Most High by acting wickedly and we are drawing out this petition in the land that we were carried away captive so we can return home to worship our Creator. Everything we are asking for is according to what is written in 1 Kings 8:47-48 which reads: "Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives, and repent, and make supplication unto thee in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness; And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name:" *** Our Full Request *** We are asking that the United Nations come together to establish arrangements (financial, citizenship, and otherwise) for the return and placement of the Hebrew Israelites in Tel Arad, starting with the Israelites in the United States. The Israelites request that financial support is provided by the United Nations until we have fully established ourselves agriculturally, economically and financially. Please sign this petition and ask the United Nations to do what is right. Numbers. 24:9 KJV reads: "He (Yahquba) couched, he lay down as a lion, and as a great lion: who shall stir him up? Blessed is he that blesseth thee, and cursed is he that curseth thee." photo credit: epictimes
