The Authority and Power To End Black Homelessness
As US citizens black homelessness is a Civil Rights matter, it triggers the power of a highly specialized, super citizenship by the authorized by the 1866 Civil Rights Act (The Act) codified, enshrined, embedded into the US Constitution via the enactment of the 14th Amendment, 150 years ago, post end of the 1861-1865 “Civil War” that liberated our ancestors from 245 years of chattel enslavement from 1620-1865.
This super citizenship law was not because of race, i.e., skin color and other anatomical features and characteristics of so called Negroid African (names given by Caucasian-white Europeans); nor ethnicity, nor, minority/majority status; gender or sexual orientations; religion;
but rather, the unique, non willing immigration experience of being purchased from ancient, West & Central African Slave Trade merchants, many of whom were Muslims; brought to America in hulls of wooden, sailing, ocean bearing, slave ships to serve Americans of willing immigration heritage as living human property of the British-US peculiar institution of chattel slavery of 245 years (1620 – 1865), being liberated from by the January 1, 1863 Emancipation Proclamation issued by President of the United States (POTUS), the Hon. Abraham Lincoln, and the May 15, 1865 Northern Union “Civil War” victory over that of the Southern, dubbed, the Confederacy.
During those 245 years, these human beings were born into, dwelt in, and died as chattel slaves.
Apparently, the architects of the 14th Amendment, which originated as the Civil Rights Act of 1866, understood that any human beings, regardless of race, ethnicity or other such identities, forced to endure such a systemic institution, would naturally experience horrendous, nightmarish difficulties for untold generation.
Therefore, for vindication, reparations (repairing) for damages done, and reconciliation for the nation, these certain “white citizens” devised a super law by which the liberated chattel slaves, i.e., Freedmen and Freemen (non enslaved blacks), et al., and their descendant children would “someday” be able to empower themselves into full, EXPERIENTIAL, “equal justice-protection under the law” US citizenship “as is enjoyed by white citizens” according to Section 1 of The Act.
That “someday” to overcome the devastation of generations-destroying chattel slavery would arrive when these Americans learn to read and fully comprehend what is read about them as them as no other citizens within the US Constitution, thereby liberating themselves and subsequently saving the Union republic.
“We have given you a republic, if you can keep it”
Mr. Benjamin Franklin, the new republics leading chattel slavery abolitionist in 1789
In 1866-68 when this super law was enacted by the 39th Congress into the Constitution, 99% of the Freedmen and Freemen cold not read, therefore, had no real idea of the enormous power bestowed upon them, but had the hopes that “someday” they would arise to it.
In fact, upon examining and studying the proposed super citizenship law, i.e., bill, POTUS Andrew Johnson, who became President when Lincoln was assassinated vetoed it, stating among other concerns, but primarily, that it granted power, even too much authority over white citizens, that is, Americans of willing immigration heritage…which of course was over ridden by Congress.
