Fed up with its prodigal and prideful rulers, France saw the tumbrels roll and the guillotine blades drop. How many more undeclared “enlightened” wars, how many more trillions of dollars in war-driven debt, how many more dead and wounded will it take for the American people to reclaim their power over war? Or are we content to remain deferential to our ruling class and court — and to their less-than-liberty-loving overseas creditors — until such a time as their prideful wars and prodigal trillion-dollar-plus “defense” budgets bring our great democratic experiment crashing down? - William J. Astore, Huffington Post
America has, is, and always will be involved in reckless wars of naked imperialism. This country will wage war for no other reason than the expansion of the powers of a ruling elite, at the expense of the money, morale, and lives of the common folk.
America has demonstrated no interest in living up to its Constitution. In doing so, law makers and elected officials have declared themselves hypocritical and treasonous. There is no liberty for any of the hundreds of thousands of members of the lost tribes of Africa currently living in America. Nor is America truly interested in taking these values of life and liberty abroad – for if she was, she would not have allowed the massacres of Rwanda, Somalia, and Darfur to endure. Nor would she be engaged in campaigns of assassination and the destabilization of other sovereign nations.
America has destroyed the material wealth of its citizenry through manipulation of market forces and currencies, intentional devaluation of the personal property of the public and rather than rewarding the worker, has taxed them into submission and given their earnings to lobbyists and corporate heads. America and her western allies have consumed and destroyed more of the Earths resources and environment than any other countries on Earth today, or any other civilization in the history of mankind. Such rampant consumerism has led to food shortages, water crises, catastrophic weather, unsustainable levels of environmental intoxication, and what will soon become an extinction level event. In short, white values are on the verge of causing mass extinction.
America has perverted its own standards of so-call justice:
*There are more African Americans under correctional control today — in prison or jail, on probation or parole — than were enslaved in 1850, a decade before the Civil War began.
*As of 2004, more African American men were disenfranchised (due to felon disenfranchisement laws) than in 1870, the year the Fifteenth Amendment was ratified, prohibiting laws that explicitly deny the right to vote on the basis of race.
* A black child born today is less likely to be raised by both parents than a black child born during slavery. The recent disintegration of the African American family is due in large part to the mass imprisonment of black fathers. Black men, women, and children are beaten to death, wrongly incarcerated, set up, physically, and psychologically scarred as a result of predatory policing.
As Separatists, we pledge to uphold the true values and virtues of the Black American Constitution of Indigenous Rights. We vow to protect both ourselves and our planet from rampant exploitation and destruction. We invoke mans natural right to self defense and self preservation, and in doing so, declare our right to separate from a nation that seeks to do its citizenry more harm than good, to subject the world to its political, economic, ideological and cultural hegemony, and to subdue the original people of the world once and for all.
Integration has destroyed us. Separation will save us.
The lost sons and daughters of Africa can make a choice to remain complicit, by being afraid to levvy the charges above against America and her cohorts – and in doing so will declare themselves instrumental in their own destruction. Or we can separate, live as we know we should. Build a community where we can raise our families according to our own values without fear of persecution. A community where we can educate, heal, and advance as we see fit.
This was achieved by the Black Napoleon Toussaint Louverture – the founder of Haiti. This was the intention of Marcus Garvey. This was the vision of Malcolm X. This is the separatist manifesto.
