The Afrikan Black Coalition—a group created in 2003 to connect activists across the University of California system—posted an op-ed “A New Constitution or the Bullet” calling for extreme violence against “white America” if the U.S. Constitution isn’t replaced with a new version that serves “the interests of black people.”
Writing on behalf of the group, coalition member “Brother B” accused “white America” for the problems and injustices “black folks” have suffered under the document written by “white men”:
“I have come to realize that the Constitution is the root of virtually all our problems in America. In order to understand the injustices against Black folks in United States, we must look back to its foundation. The U.S. is a country that was founded on slavery, genocide, rape, and white-male patriarchy. A body cannot be separated from its head and remain living. The Constitution and all the evil that it allows to be perpetuated are the head of White America, or more so corrupt America. Racist America. … A Constitution written by only white men will never serve the interests of black people. The Constitution was written for the ruling class of white men which constructed whiteness to be more valuable than any other race.”
Brother B proceeded to call multiple times for bloodshed if their demands for a new Constitution went unheeded:
“Do we not have the right to abolish the laws that oppress us? It is time to claim the Declaration of Independence and apply it to our struggle as colonized black people in America. The United States has us; it is time we demand a new constitution or tell America that she will get the bullet. White supremacy’s bullets are killing black people every day. If America does not protect us, then it is our human right to defend ourselves by any means necessary. It is our human right to overthrow a government that has been destructive to our people. This is why we must rise up and let all people come together and write new constitution to serve ALL people. … We must pick up where the Black Panthers left off and declare a new constitution or it will be the bullet.”
This is just another example of the race-baiting being used by extremists. In August I wrote about Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, and his call for ten thousand of his followers to rise up, stalk and kill “those who kill us”:
“I’m looking for ten thousand in the midst of the million. Ten thousand men who say, ‘Death is sweeter than continued life under tyranny. … If the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling.”
In the preamble of the Declaration of Independence, those “white men” Brother B mentions wrote the words:
“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.”
Still, under the leadership of America’s first black president, race relations have grown worse; which means that any issues black America might be experiencing are more likely due to the weak leadership of America’s black president, and nothing to do with the Constitution.
