‘Afrikan Black Coalition’ Reveals 2 Shocking Goals: ‘Stop White People’ and…
A multi-campus black college student group has two goals it seeks to implement in the United States: overthrow the Constitution and “stop white people.”
The goals are related, according to Campus Reform, which reported on the movement.
The Afrikan Black Coalition, lists the University of California, Santa Barbara, UC Irvine, UC Riverside and San Diego State University as “partner schools,” where presumably supporters of the group attend. UC Santa Barbara is slated to host the coalition’s next annual conference in February 2016.
In an article titled, A New Constitution or the Bullet, published on Nov. 4 on its website, the group pronounces, “It is our human right to overthrow a government that has been destructive to our people.”
“A Constitution written by only white men will never serve the interests Black [sic] people. The Constitution was written for the ruling class of white men which constructed whiteness to be more valuable than any other race,” the Coalition argues. “When we discuss institutional racism, it is essential that we realize the Constitution created it.”
It is not clear what aspects of the Constitution the group would seek to change in a new governing document. While the charter made provision for the institution of slavery (as a compromise to hold the nation together), the post-Civil War constitutional amendments ended it and sought to eradicate its effects. The 13th Amendment made slavery unconstitutional; the 14th Amendment guaranteed equal protection under the law, regardless of race; and the 15th Amendment guaranteed African-Americans the right to vote.
The nation continued to work out making the promises of those amendments the reality in all states for all for the next century and more, but their provisions are sound and consistent with the Declaration of Independence. Martin Luther King, Jr., Frederick Douglass and many other civil rights leaders pointed to the Declaration of Independence as containing the ideals to which the United States was called to strive.
