In Adam Liptak “Supreme Court To Weigh Race In Admissions,” N.Y. Times, June 30, 2015 at A1, the U.S. Supreme Court will take another look at affirmative action.
It would be an excellent time for Blacks to remind the “High Court” that this country still owes a “debt” to descendants of enslaved Africans. This is the purpose of an amicus curiae brief. “The best defense is a good offense.”
While it is arguable that Blacks are citizens of the United States, it is undeniable that we are creditors and that the interest on the “debt” is mounting. Despite the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment in 1868, blacks were subject to de jure, Jim Crow education until 1954 and public education has been de facto since 1954.
A committee of interested Blacks must be formed forthwith to establish a timetable under the “Rules of the Supreme Court of the United States.” This will require an acquisition of “Rules of the Supreme Court of the United States.” The first inquiry should be the timetable for the filing of pleadings.
Under Rule 37, “An amicus curiae brief, that brings to the attention of the Court relevant matter not already brought to its attention by the parties, may be of considerable help to the Court.” For example in Terry v. Ohio, 392 U.S.1 (1968) the amicus brief of Americans for Effective Law Enforcement urged the Supreme Court to return blacks back to slavery for law enforcement purposes without any opposition from Blacks.
Rule 37 also provides, “An amicus curiae brief, may be filed only by an attorney admitted to practice before this Court as provided in Rule 5. “If the membership of the United African Movement and the Freedom Party were still adhering to its “original intent”, there would already be an attorney, an accountant and a legal secretary in place. Similarly, the UNIA began to unwind in the persecution of Marcus Garvey.
Penal Law § 140.50 (Malcolm X Law”) is a question of the tail wagging the dog. New York enacted the “Malcolm X Law” in 1964 to curb the movement of the adherents of Malcolm X. This is a case of states rights being elevated over federalism. “Stop, question and frisk” has wreaked havoc on blacks and Latinos in New York.
Since Roberts v. City of Boston, 5 Cush. 198, 59 Mass 198 (1849), there has been an ongoing struggle in this country, by blacks, for at least a quality education. Robert Morris, Sr., the first civil rights attorney in the United States, initiated this litigation which preceded Brown v Board of Education by more than 105 years.
United African Movement has been derailed from the format that was employed at the Slave Theater. July 18, 2015 has been set aside to get the Underground Railroad back on track.
This discussion will be included in my “Workshop on Reparations” on July 15, 2015 at Brooklyn Christian Center, 1061 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. This discussion will introduce a novel approach to reparations.
