Black Lives Matter To Whom?

America has laws that say Black lives do NOT matter. In the famous Dred Scott Decision of 1857 that concluded that Black people have no rights, the Supreme Court made itself co-equal to the U.S. Congress and began issuing rulings that declared governmental acts to aid Black people were unconstitutional. This Dred Scott Decision stated emphatically that neither free nor enslaved Blacks were considered to be citizens and could not sue for their freedom. Representing the Majority opinion, Supreme Court Justice Roger B. Taney, born to a slaveholding family of tobacco planters in Calvert County, Maryland wrote: “Blacks are inferior beings and as property, they lack citizenship and have no rights that a white man is bound to respect.” After the Civil War, Congress specifically enacted the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments to abolish slavery, grant Blacks citizenship with equal protection, and establish voting rights. However, the Supreme Court has successfully emasculated those Amendments with authority that defines another group with lesser or no authority. This social construct frames the perception of, and the relationship between the groups. It becomes part of the culture, infused into social norms and practices of every part of society including legal, educational, financial, political and interpersonal relationships. Make note, the most important social construct in America is Race. The Founding Fathers purposely constructed the societal position of Black and Whites. Blacks were to BE property that served Whites, and Whites were to be the only beneficiaries of the new country that they created. #blacks #community #networking #business #entrepreneurs #blackamerica #leadership #goals #spiritualgrowth #groupeconomics #blacklove #quote #quotestags #needyou #blackquotes #sayings #firstpeople #life #sadtruth #wakeup #picturequotes #nofilter #textpost #blacklivesmatter #forever #powernomics #blackempowerment #always #boysliemendont #ourism
