Recent Kansas Court Case Proves The Dred Scott Decision Is Still Valid

maxresdefault

In 1857, the Supreme Court made a landmark decision in the case of a Melanoid man named Dred Scott. Scott was born into slavery and he unsuccessfully sued for his freedom and that of his wife and their two daughters. Scott claimed that he and his wife should be granted their freedom because they had lived in Illinois and the Wisconsin Territory for four years, where slavery was illegal.

The 1857 Supreme Court decision in this case legally solidified white supremacy in the United States that dominates every area of activity today. Chief Supreme Court Justice of the Dred Scott case, Roger Taney made the following statement about Black Americans in his final decision:

“They (Black people) had for more than a century before been regarded as beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations; and so far inferior, that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect.”

Many legal and social analysts will claim that the 14th amendment of the U.S. Constitution that was made a few years after this Supreme Court ruling, effectively overturned the Dred Scott decision. But the Supreme Court has never specifically overturned the Dred Scott decision. And even to this day, the 14th amendment in the Constitution is rarely enforced to protect Black Americans.

Part of the 14th amendment reads:

“No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

Yet, during the so-called Jim Crow era, the 14th amendment, and other amendments were legally and  repeatedly violated when it came to Black Americans. Black people could be lynched by whites at any time for any reason with impunity. And even now in modern times, we repeatedly see numerous innocent, unarmed Black men, women, and children have their so-called Constitutional rights violated by white supremacists with complete impunity.

Trayvon Martin was “deprived of life” without “due process of the law.”

Eric Garner was “deprived of life” without “due process of the law.”

Freddie Gray was “deprived of life” without “due process of the law.”

Philander Castille was “deprived of life” without “due process of the law.”

And this list goes on and on. All of these Black citizens were murdered by whites and the killers were not punished. So these cases prove that the Constitution is not being fully enforced. But it proves that the Dred Scott Supreme Court decision is being fully enforced: Meaning Blacks do not have rights that whites are bound to respect.

A recent court ruling in Kansas approvingly cited the Dred Scott decision in an anti-abortion case. In October 2016, Kansas Solicitor General cited the Dred Scott decision in a legal brief explaining why SB 95, which is a ruling that outlawed certain types of abortion, should be upheld.

While pro-lifers sometimes use the example of the human rights abuses of slavery to argue that all human beings deserve an equal right to life and liberty, that does not appear to have been the Kansas Attorney General’s argument in this case. Rather, the state’s point in citing Dred Scott (a ruling that said Blacks were not U.S. citizens and that Blacks were inferior) is to indicate how the state Constitution language should be interpreted.

In its argument, the state attorneys cited former Chief Justice Roger Taney’s description of the Declaration of Independence in the Dred Scott case. Taney wrote that the Declaration’s unalienable rights are merely “general words used in that memorable instrument” that have no legal effect, according to the ABA Journal.

Many people in the legal profession were shocked that the Dred Scott decision would be approvingly cited in a modern case. Feeling the backlash, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt apologized for citing the controversial Dred Scott case. Also in response to the backlash, Kansas “withdrew” the offending legal brief on October 18th 2016.

But “withdrawing” a legal brief after you effectively cite it in court is too little too late. The cat is out of the bag.  The reality is, the court approvingly allowed the Dred Scott case to be cited because the Scott decision is still the law on the land in the United States. Black people still do not have rights that whites are bound to respect. And Black people do not get equal protection under the law.

At this point, Black people should collectively go to the Supreme Court to establish exactly what our status and what our compensation should be under this court sanctioned system of white supremacy.

    My God!
    …or should O say, “My Gods rise up with warrior spirits within and winning attitides throughout to overthrow our oppression once and for all! Re-segregation is our key out of the burning house!! Let our people go…peacefully, without interruption and with ‘justice or else’!!!”

    1. Florence says:

      “To throw off oppression ” remains out of grasp except to a small percent. Descendants of American Slaves have cooked, cleaned, climbed in and out of trenches in and out of wars, fought for the freedoms America stood for, yet came “home” to being as ignored without legal standing as before. The Constitution protects its citizens, right? When those who are not citizens, like Nexucans and other “nationalities” fight in our wars , they then are given the opportunity to become citizens. So why are descendants of Smetucsn Slaves not recognized as citizens?

  2. Suns Of Revolution says:

    Well Johnson County Kansas is by far one of the racist places in USA, do a little research and youll be horrified, Even the name Johnson comes from a wealthy slave owner.

  3. Bisa kdei says:

    Black people should collectively go to the Supreme Court and do what?? In case you didn’t notice there are 8 justices now. 4 conservative 4 liberal. Donald trump when he becomes president and appoints a Scalia type figure in there will be the final nail in the coffin for the rights of African Americans and other progressive agendas.

    1. Florence says:

      Great prayer – may the Lord do as you say.
      You don’t mean going physically I presume? Or do you mean go into free territory of your choice somewhere in the US, to start up your own community?

        THE NEW MISSION OF THE UNITED STATES BLACK NATION

        ******* Operation Black Rebuild *******

        BLACK AMERICA, our mission [as we move into this new era] is vast in scope but IS NOT INTENDED TO HATE OR TO BECOME A THREAT OR TO BECOME AN ADVERSARY NATION TO ANYONE OR ANY COUNTRY in this world. We were once a peaceful Black nation and can become one again. Our mission aim and clear target is to fully awaken the Black man and Black Woman where ever he or she may be found in this world.

        THE PILARS of this mission consist of education, encouragement, enlightenment, engagement, and empowerment of the Black nation locally and globally.

        THE KEY ELEMENTS of our mission is to refocus, reorganize, rework, redesign, retool, rebuild, reconstruct, remodel, replace, reconsider, reprogram, reeducate, realign, reaffirm, re-dedicate, reconnect, and rebirth ALL Black communities locally and Globally. This is a generation by generation positive movement.

        OUR MISSION IS TO CONNECT the people of the world that are woven together by the same melanin that unites us as one. This is the way the world already views us, but traditionally we have not. Our mindset must accept ALL Black melaninated people, irregardless of language spoken and location, as brothers and sisters from the same continent of Africa. Africa is where ALL melanin ancestors originated so we are to get acquainted with them and respect their adopted cultures and behaviors, even if they are foreign to you. We must learn to respect and learn from our differences as well.

        OUR MISSION FUEL encompasses the creation of a true Black economy. There was once a Black Wallstreet and vibrant Black towns and neighborhoods. This nation build would be similar to any China Town or Spanish town or Jewish community across America. We must tightly circulate the Black dollar and commerce between ourselves for not less than 20 years in order to jump-start and build a thriving Black economy within the United States and abroad. Black stocks, Black futures, Black commodities, Black Futures, Black agriculture and farms, Black Banks and Black Businesses must be architecturally designed within the modern Black Townships and outside of them.

        OUR MISSION FOR THE BLACK CHURCHES is to rebuild them from the inside out incorporating the real truths and extracting to preacher gets rich while the people suffer mentality from the new BLACK Church. There will be no more tithes but only offerings to help maintain the church AND its faithful parishioners. The church will refocus it’s service to the spiritual, emotional, health and financial needs of its members. ALL EUROPEAN doctrines will be extracted from the teachings of the church and a reformed church focus on the betterment of its members rather than the extraction of their money. No longer, under the Black Constitution will Preachers be allowed to write books for fame & fortune but all books and learning materials composed for sale and revenue and ALL church fund raisers are to have 15% fund deductions that are placed in a Black bank escrow account that is used towards Black life improvement projects (i.e., medical, food, housing) for its members.

        OUR MISSION FOR A BLACK MILITARY encompasses all the same branches as the US Military – however, Black soldiers serve as Police. Our Military works NOT AGAINST the US Military but along side of the US Military as an in-nation Ally. Every nation, including the US Black Nation, should have its own military soldiers. The primary mission of the Black Military is to protect ALL facets of the United States of Black America. Their secondary mission is to align themselves as friendly Allies of the US Military to jointly protect the freedom of the ALL US Citizens.

        WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED BLACK NATIONS must write a Black Constitution that directly applies to how we are to be governed and legally conduct ourselves in this new era. It should not conflict with the Constitution of the United States but fine tune it to apply more directly to the nation of Blacks locally and globally .

      African Americans have same rights of citizenship as other legally recognized Americans. They can be White Africans, Indian Africans, Asian African, etc. However, Black folk are not legally recognized. Neither are Colored Folk, or Negros.

    So when one of the most underrated Leaders (IMHO) Nobel Drew Ali told the so-called negro, black and colored people in America you MUST PROCLAME your NATIONALITY we just did not understand what he meant His words are still the standing ORDER that all must Proclam your nationality to be recognized as a citizen of the State you reside , the Government and the Nations of the earth. (This is just pure civics don’t get it twisted) I know some would dismiss him as trying get us under another religion but WS is a religion and has total destroy us. Some will say ( OK you proclaim your nationality now what!!) Ans: Get up off ya behind and go to work Building, Protecting and em-Powering YOUR nation! thats what.

    Let’s hear his words and see just how true he was about this Great article posted here today. :

    The citizens of all free national governments according to their national constitution are all of one family bearing one free national name. Those who fail to recognize the free national name of their constitutional government are classes as undesirables, and are subject to all inferior names and abuses and mistreatments that the citizens care to bestow upon them. And it is a sin for any group of people to violate the national constitutional laws of a free national government and cling to the names and the principles that delude to slavery.

    I, the Prophet, was prepared by the Great God Allah to warn my people to repent from their sinful ways and go back to that state of mind to their forefathers’ Divine and national principles that they will be law-abiders and receive their divine right as citizens, according to the free national constitution that was prepared for all free national beings. They are to claim their own free national name and religion.

    There is but one issue for them to be recognized by this government and of the earth and it comes only through the connection of the Moorish Divine National Movement, which is incorporated in this government and recognized by all other nations of the world. And through it they and their children can receive their Divine rights, unmolested by other citizens that they can cast a free national ballot at the polls under the free national constitution of the States Government and not under a granted privilege as has been the existing condition for many generations.

    You who doubt whether I, the Prophet, and my principles are right for the redemption of my people, go to those that know law, in the City Hall and among the officials in your government and ask them under an intelligent tone, and they will be glad to render you a favorable reply, for they are glad to see me bring you out of darkness into light. Money doesn’t make the man, it is free national standards and power that makes a man and a nation. The wealth of all national governments, gold and silver and commerce belong to the citizens alone and without your national citizenship by name and principles, you have no true wealth, and I am hereby calling on all true citizens that stand for a National Free Government, and the enforcement of the constitution to help me in my great missionary work because I need all support from all true American citizens of the United States of America. Help me to save my people who have fallen from the constitutional laws of government. I am depending on your support to get them back to the constitutional fold again that they will learn to love instead of hate, and will live according to Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom, and Justice, supporting our free national constitution of the United States of America.

    I Love my people and I desire their unity and mine back to their own National and Divine standard because day by day they have been violating the national and constitutional laws of their government by claiming names and principles that are unconstitutional. If Italians, Greeks, English, Chinese, Japanese, Turks, and Arabians are forced to proclaim their free national name and religion before the constitutional government of the United States of America, it is no more than right that the law should be enforced upon all other American citizens alike. In all other governments when a man is born and raised there and asked for his national descent name and if he fails to give it, he is misused, imprisoned, or exiled. Any group of people that fail to answer up to the constitutional standards of law by name and principles, because to be a citizen of any government you must claim your national descent name. Because they place their trust upon issue and names formed by their forefathers.

    The word Negro deludes in the Latin language to the word nigger; the same as the word “colored” deludes to anything that is painted, varnished and dyed. And every nation must bear a national descent name of their forefathers, because honoring thy fathers and they mothers, your days will be lengthened upon this earth. These names have never been recognized by any true American citizen of this day. Through your free national name you are known and recognized by all nations of the earth that are recognized by said national government in which they live. The 14th and 15th Amendments brought the North and South in unit, placing the Southerners who were at that time without power, with the constitutional body of power. And at that time, 1865, the free national constitutional law that was enforced since 1774 declared all men equal and free, and if all men are declared by the free national constitution to be free and equal since that constitution has never been changed, there is no need for the application of the 14th and 15th Amendments for the salvation of our people and citizens.

    So, there isn’t but one supreme issue for my people to use to redeem that which was lost, and that is through the above statements. Then the lion and the lamb can lie down together in yonder hills. And neither will be harmed, because Love, Truth, peace, Freedom and Justice will be reigning in this land. In those days the United States will be one of the greatest civilized and prosperous governments of the world, but if the above principles are not carried out by the citizens and my people in this government, the worst is yet to come, because the Great God of the Universe is not pleased with the works that are being performed in North America by my people and this great sin must be removed from the land to save it from enormous earthquakes, diseases, etc. And, I, the Prophet, do hereby believe that this administration of the government being more wisely prepared by more genius citizens that believe in their free national constitution and laws and through the help of such classes of citizens, I, the Prophet, truly believe that my people will find the true and Divine way of their forefathers, and learn to stop serving carnal customs and merely ideas of man, that have never done them any good, but have always harmed them.

    So, I, the Prophet, am hereby calling aloud with a Divine plea to all true American citizens to help me to remove this great sin which has been committed and is being practiced by my people in the United States of America, because they know it is not the true and Divine way and, without understanding they have fallen from the true light into utter darkness of sin, and there is not a nation on earth today that will recognize them socially, religiously, politically or economically, etc. In their present condition of their endeavorment in which they themselves try to force upon a civilized world, they will not refrain from their sinful ways of action and their deeds have brought Jim-Crowism, segregation, and everything that brings harm to human beings on earth. And they fought the Southerner for all these great misuses, but I have traveled in the South and have examined conditions there, and it is the works of my people continuously practicing the things which bring dishonor, disgrace, and disrespect to any nation that lives the life. And I am hereby calling on all true American citizens for moral support and finance to help me in my great missionary work to bring my people out of darkness into marvelous light.
