While this feels painfully futile, my broken heart and weighty concerns move me to write I guess, in a feeble attempt to wake the sleeping to an imminent tragedy.
This problem of ‘racism’ a problem dangerously underestimated in its magnitude “allowed to drift” by the governed and governors alike” is building in its severity and now visibly threatens the lives of people of African descent specifically and eventually all of the people of this country.
‘Freedom’ the moral foundation upon which the county is built, has been co-opted by human barbarism, arrogance, vanity and excess.
The violence against African Americans is neither new nor isolated. The assaults which too many of us have witnessed or experienced directly are systematic and brutal involving the Federal Government, Law Enforcement, Long standing Vigilante Terrorists and powerful Political Groups and Organizations among others!
“Crimes against humanity are certain acts when committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population. The first prosecution for crimes against humanity took place at the Nuremberg Trials. Crimes against humanity have since been prosecuted by other international courts.
They are not isolated or sporadic events, but are part either of a government policy (although the perpetrators need not identify themselves with this policy) or of a wide practice of atrocities (tolerated or condoned by a government or a de facto authority.)
Murder; massacres; dehumanization; extermination; human experimentation; extrajudicial punishments; death squads; military use of children; kidnappings; unjust imprisonment; slavery; cannibalism, torture; rape; political, racial, or religious persecution; and other inhumane acts may reach the threshold of crimes against humanity if they are part of a widespread or systematic practice.”
From capture, rape, beating, torture, mutilation, medical experimentation and lynching, to murder by police, mass incarceration, serial displacement, and vigilante terrorism.
There is a preponderance of evidence that there has been and continues to be widespread perpetual assault against African Americans.
Crimes which need to be tried in the ‘World Courts’
