STOP Black Hate
We are petitioning Congress to introduce a bill, or set of bills, to rectify this long standing issue between law enforcement, the Judicial Branch, and African Americans.
There are certain inalienable rights that are respective to all human beings regardless of race. Our influence in the foundation of the American society is undeniable. Therefore, we are happy to assist in the ideation of said policies as active participants in the civil process.
If you agree with the contents of this petition, we are asking that you sign it and share it with your family and friends.
Thank you for your time, attention, and participation in our pursuit of “liberty and justice for all.”
Why is this important?
Police brutality against African Americans in the United States of America has gone beyond reproof. It is beyond time for there to be sensible legislation that affords African Americans the same rights and privileges that American citizenship offers other Americans.
We have witnessed:
Little to no repercussions for police officers’ blatant murder of African Americans;
Perjury in court and/or to grand jury, where officers grandstand on their “fear” of African American citizens they are called upon and paid with taxpayer dollars to protect and serve;
A lack of de-escalation techniques employed when interacting with African Americans;
No repercussions for individuals who fraudulently call police on African Americans that lead to the harassment and, in most instances, murder of our beloved people.
This is highly unacceptable and intolerable.
We believe that, in every instance, life should be preserved, which is in accordance with our right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” as dictated in the Declaration of Independence and our 14th Amendment right to “due process under the law.” In cases regarding African Americans, we are rarely afforded that constitutional right.
We believe that the colors of our skin should not be weaponized against us and should not come with an automatic guilty verdict. The legal right to “equal protection of the laws” is also a right that is afforded to us under the 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. However, in cases regarding African Americans, we are rarely afforded that constitutional right.
