HOW THE WHITEMAN USED THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE???? By Andre Austin I will first cite the opening lines of The Declaration of Indecency then offer critical thinking and critical analysis to show that the “We” and the “All” didn’t include black people. The Declaration of Independence: A Transcription IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness (originally property). 1st. Politicians and Christians used their rationalization of the Myth of Ham’s curse to assert Black and white should be separate and unequal. This was made famous in the Dred Scott Decision (1857) which has never been reversed. I would like the Nation of Islam have an actor recite Frederick Douglass speech on the Dred Scott matter at the future 20th anniversary of the MMM on 10.10-2015 in DC. For those not knowing Douglass oratory skills are those of Malcolm X and King combined. You can go to youtube and hear Ossie Davis reenact Douglass speech about the 4th of July and the Dred Scott case. 2nd. White people didn’t come on the mayflower to America to be happy. They came to get land from the Indian and free labor from Blacks. In 1896 the supreme Court ruled “separate but Equal” for blacks and whites which was the theme in the opening line of the declaration of Indeceny. In reality in America today in 2015 we are separate and unequal just like we were on the eve of the Civil War in 1860. In 1860 blacks had ½ of 1% of the wealth exactly where we are today. We own and control nothing so naturally we are in “Black rage” and “Unhappy”.
