Affirmative action benefits just for Freedmen
Your Top Three Freedmen Only Affirmative Action Benefits And How to Access Them
Now that the dust has settled, and the rest of the world has gotten over its loss of affirmative action, this is the perfect time to discuss the amazing Freedmen-only benefits quietly contained in the ruling. That’s right the June 2023 Supreme Court decision on affirmative action was a historical judgment meant to change the lives of Freedmen forever.
Freedman is the term Congress used to describe the descendants of the “colored soldiers and sailors of the Union Army and Navy.” Perhaps you’ve heard of the Freedmen’s Bank or Bureau of Freedmen Affairs - a freedman is a formerly enslaved person who has been legally released from slavery. An emancipated slave. Freedmen refers to the enslaved persons held in servitude to the Five Civilized Tribes Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Muscogee (Creek), and Seminole. If you are a descendant of US Chattel Slaves then you might be a freedman. Today Freedmen may also be called Descendants of US Chattel Slaves, Foundational Black Americans, and Black Americans. Formerly known as African American or Negro.
The June 2023 ruling on affirmative action had a number of easter egg surprises specifically for Freedmen. Benefits such as separate funding for Freedmen school districts, a separate line item in the annual budget of the Department of Education, and the startling truth that American society was structured around the profitable institution of slavery. In this article, we will discuss three of the top-tier benefits of affirmative action and how to access those benefits.
Affirmative Action Facts We Already Knew
Here are a few refreshers on the things we already knew about affirmative action. We knew affirmative action was written to benefit slaves. Although in practice things were different, affirmative action was written to eliminate racial barriers and protect black and colored former slaves from race or racial screenings.
However, what we may not have understood is that Congress eliminated the use of race in any shape form, or fashion a long time ago. From the start, race should not have been on a job posting, government document, or college admissions application. Why? Because race is solely based on skin pigmentation. All racial stereotypes are meant to demean an individual's worth. Admissions, privileges, and funds should be based on previous conditions of servitude.
We knew affirmative action was meant to “protect the black man” but what we didn’t know is that the 14th Amendment shielded former slaves from less-than-favorable laws and law enforcement. Justice Sonia Sotomayor admitted everything about America was designed to intimidate, subjugate, and control the freed slaves. Free forced labor has tremendous benefits (144th page).
Slaves were emancipated to fight in the Civil War but after the war, the States replaced slavery with a system of laws to impose disabilities and burdens on black people. States created laws to curtail the rights of Freedmen every day. On the 143rd page, Justice Sotomayor said the Thirteenth Amendment replaced slavery with “a system of ‘laws which curtailed their rights in the pursuit of life, liberty, and property to such an extent that their freedom was of little value.” But these are some of the things we already knew about affirmative action and these are the things that have not changed.
As a Result of Students for Fair Admissions
Before the ruling, college enrollment admissions were based on four categories: Legacy status, recruited athletes, financial aid, and race. However, the case failed in course because neither Harvard, the University of North Carolina, nor Students for Fair Admissions could provide the court with any data on the benefits of racial diversity in education.
The Court concludes that Harvard’s and UNC’s policies are unconstitutional because they serve objectives that are insufficiently measurable employ racial categories that are imprecise and overbroad, rely on racial stereotypes and disadvantage nonminority groups, and do not have an endpoint. Ante, at 21–34, 39.
In short, racial diversity does not add additional benefits to ones education. Kavanaugh said institutions of higher education have used race-based programs for about 50 years now, and in all that time neither Harvard nor UNC has produced a study which clearly links a connection between race and a college education. Therefore it was time to divorce education from race because the freedom to learn has never been colorblind or equal in America. Affirmative action was written to get rid of race and racial screenings in every area of life not jut education.
As a result of the Supreme Court’s ruling universities must be able to establish a link between racial discrimination and educational benefits. Universities who racially discriminate do not deserve deference with respect to their reasons for discriminating. In fact, universities who attempt to remedy previous governmental discrimination must be closely tailored to address that particular past governmental discrimination (lineage based reparations). Universities spend “expended vast financial resources” in training thousands of application readers on how to faithfully apply race in admissions qualifications, they can spend the same amount building guardrails against race in admissions. Brief for University Respondents in No. 21–707, p. 44.
Freedmen Only Benefits
The June 2023 ruling on affirmative action had a number of benefits specifically for Freedmen, but slave owners don’t want you to know. Benefits such as separate funding for separate Freedmen school districts, a line item in the Department of Education’s budget, and exemption from unfriendly laws. Let’s focus on the top three benefits descendants of slave owners don’t want you to know about affirmative action.
The most relevant Freedmen benefit of affirmative action colonizers don't want you to know is that State governments can undo past effects of discrimination based on race (against race-based reparations). According to the case of Brown Cooper v. Aaron, “Law and order are not here to be preserved by depriving the Negro children of their constitutional rights”. Cooper v. Aaron, 358 U. S. 1, 16 (1958). Justice Thomas admitted the United States of America was an experiment in “republican government with democratic participation” aka slavery (142nd page). He said the original constitution limited Congress’ power to restrict the slave trade.
The second most important benefit is that Congress left special appropriations, protections, and prize money owed to the “colored soldiers and sailors of the Union Army and Navy” and the United States federal government knew it. The U.S. federal government knew Congress left special considerations for descendants of the Union soldiers, ignored it, and wrote a cornucopia of laws (race-based obstacles) to ensure black people could not live freely or seek a better life.
Politicians who are descendants of slave owners like President Joe Biden, a descendant of Ukrainian slave owners, don't want you to know you have the 14th Amendment gave colored Union soldiers the right to exempt from any unfriendly legislation.
Court relied on the Slaughter-House view to conclude that “the words of the Fourteenth Amendment . . . contain a necessary implication of a positive immunity, or right, most valuable to the colored race,—the right to exemption from unfriendly legislation against them distinctively as colored.” Strauder v. West Virginia, 100 U. S. 303, 307–308 (1880). The Court thus found that the Fourteenth Amendment banned “express” racial classifications, no matter the race affected because these classifications are “a stimulant to . . . race prejudice.”
In gratitude for winning the Civil War, Congress proclaimed race illegal. A state shall not identify its citizens by race however the government can undo the effects of past racial discrimination.
The most incredible affirmative action benefit colonizers don’t want you to know is Congress left cash, awards, and payments exclusively for the descendants of the 250,000 colored Union Army and Navy soldiers (212nd page). According to Justice Harlan, “Enslaved black people would have built great wealth, but only for enslavers.”
Congress promised the colored Union soldiers and sailors preferential treatment as a thank you for their bravery and winning the Civil War. According to the 14th amendment the emancipation of the race held in slavery, descendants of former slaves, should enjoy the same rights as the so-called “superior race”.
Affirmative action wasn’t meant to benefit all blacks “writ large” because not all blacks were former slaves. Affirmative action was solely for the bloodline of previous servitude (lineage-based reparations).
