Essentially, since the early autumn of 2004, I have learned of and continue to learn more about what I call this “closet law”, and what Rev.-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., called the Promissory Note, made prominent by his “I Have A Dream” speech 55 years ago this coming August 28, 2018, at the August 28, 1963 Civil Rights March and Rally in Washington, DC.
Note: “closet law” – that which is hidden, or unknown, or reserved until the proper time – season of application, i.e., simply because a law, etc. is not enforced, doesn’t negate its validity. It just needs to be rediscovered and enforced by the will of We the People…hence, the 14th Amendment-Act.
The Great and Most Significantly Important, US Constitutional Codified Act
The Civil Rights Act of 1866 (The Act), is the Progenitor of the 14th Amendment enacted in 1868, by which it is codified, enshrined, embedded deep within the Constitution, hidden there until the day in which its’ Subject Beneficiaries, i.e., black citizens learn to read and comprehend that which they read, and subsequently save themselves for trended, predictable destruction and the We the People of the Union republic itself…at least that is what architect legislator of the law hoped would someday occur…for the sake of the Union republic.
Note: Except for a minuscule few, black citizens in 1866 did not know how to read, therefore, en masse they could possible know, let alone wield the great authority and power granted them and their descendant children.
The National Birth Certificates of Two American US Citizen People
While July 2-4,1776 is the national birth and identity of the United States Union republic, the official, National Birth and Identity Rights Certificate of American, US, black citizens is the combined April 9, 1866 Civil Rights Act, and July 9, 1868 14th Amendment.
This unprecedented in world history citizenship, which is designated solely and exclusively of, for and to the American, freed chattel slaves, Freemen (non slave blacks); refugees (black slaves made homeless by the Civil War and exiled out of African as slaves); coloreds (blacks of various shades of skin color due to white masters forced race mixing upon slave women); et al.
This highly specialized law is not granted to black citizens, because of their/our race, ethnicity, minority/majority status, religion, etc., but rather due to the way in which peoples of this erroneously purported “immigration nation”, brought their/our ancestors against their wills shackled in chains as slaves exiled-sold out of Africa into America.
To make up and rectify 245 years of damages (1620-1865) to the Americans of chattel slavery, whereby human beings were born slaves, i.e., living, human property, and die as such (four generations), and being left out of the 1776 Declaration of Independence citizenship, Section of The Act mandates that black citizens and their descendant children forever in this “nation of immigrants” EXPERIENCE an “equal justice-protection under the law” citizenship “as is enjoyed by white citizens.”
As a peoples, of the 398 years that American blacks of the slavery heritage, 344 have been under some law of slavery (1620-1865) or racial discrimination, i.e., Black Codes-Jim Crowism (1865-1964) which ended with the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Therefore, American blacks, have been technically free from legal suppression only a mere fifty-four (54) years, even though for 156 years we have had “on Constitutional paper” citizenship, but only perhaps the “talented tenth” have actually experienced it “as is enjoyed by white citizens.”
Hence, Dr. Kings stern admonition and warning about We the People of this republics’ failure to ensure what they wrote in law concerning the citizenship rights of the freed chattel slaves, et al and their descendant children, saying in “Dream” –
“There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights (EXPERIENTIAL “as is enjoyed by white citizens”). The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.” That is, when they learn to read and comprehend what they read in the Constitution.
This 14th Amendment-Act is indeed the Promissory Note spoken of by Dr. King, Jr., fifty-fifty (55) years ago.
“…we have come…to cash a check…the architects of our republic…were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned.
Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check which has come back marked “insufficient funds. But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation.
So we have come to cash this check — a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice.”
Given the state of black homelessness, which is the obvious, ultimate statement of black citizens’ poverty and generational “lawful”, but unlawful in GOD’s sight, suppression, that the reality that we are being rendered inconsequential in America, as causes for foreign interest are gripping the mind, energies, resources of nation’s governmental leaders, including their/our own, “Now is the time…and fierce urgency of now” to stop everything that we are doing, then read, study and comprehend that we may secure our rightful place in this Union republic as originally intended in the Constitution.
Justiceville and its allied associates are presently in a “back-channel” campaign to the White House, CA State Assembly, Los Angeles County and City proper, seeking a Presidential Executive Order that will eradicate the national security threatening chronic, sidewalk, encampment, homelessness based on the 14th Amendment-Act.
