This is not 1865, and the Dread Scott decision has no bearing on what happens today.
The only enslavement that U.S. born Blacks face today is the obstacles that he or she place on themselves and/or any treasonous misfit from within the Black community itself who contributes to disparaging Constitutional protections.
Slim chance exists that any of these individuals, as it concerns Norland, Dr. Umar Johnson, any loud mouth and misguided Black nationalists talking against the merits of the Constitution and the value of American citizenship racing to relocate to any other part of the planet to make a living, to raise their families, relocating once and for all to leave the U.S. for Cuba, the Sudan, Somalia, Pakistan, South Africa, Haiti, Jamaica, Trinidad, Mexico, Kenya, Nigeria, North Korea, China, Japan, etc., etc.
The very individuals who did, namely Eldridge Cleaver, other members of the Black Panthers, regretted it, and the ones who were lucky enough to return to the U.S., were so grateful to be allowed to re-enter the U.S. that these individuals virtually kissed U.S. soil.
Provided an individual is competently represented the U.S. is still the greatest and most equitable nation on the planet.
It would behoove anyone with any sense, who faces criminal indictment, who has any civil claim in any court or who is actually facing the music, and whose mission is to win, to ignore the misguided advice that trashes the value of the Constitution or the value of U.S. citizenship as represented by Dr. Umar Johnson, Norland, etc., etc., any university educated "fool" and fire any attorney, such as Attorney Elizabeth Harris, etc., etc., who places no value in Constitutional protections, or in competently representing a client.
This would be your life, future, reputation, assets, family, or best interests at stake. No one needs an additional adversary in the courtroom, as this relates to hiring any attorney who is a disgrace to the profession, and who is already against you, every second that he or she trashes the merits of Constitutional protections. A hint to the wise should be sufficient.
Since this is a nation of individual rights, and the freedom of speech is a first Amendment Constitutional protection if an American citizen chooses to call his or herself a Tuvalu American, they have that right.
Damn you're like a big black roach up here in AfricanAmericadotorg. Who has time to read all your chit? You don't like the President? So, you don't like the President. Run for President, why doncha??? You're just your parents' kid, that's all any of us are. Important in your own mind like lots of folks. Rather than copying what I say in every one of your posts, prove I'm wrong and leave my posts right where they are. Thank you!!!!!!!!!
Dr. Umar Johnson said Africans in America aren't CITIZENS at all; we're DENIZENS (Inhabitants) and that we'll never be classified as CITIZENS. That's why we're experiencing all this grief. We're leaders of our lives as long as we walk the "straight and narrow", but as soon as you break the Legal Arm of White Supremacy (LAWS), you'll find out quick, fast and in a damn hurry who the TRUE leaders when they lead your butt to prison or to your grave in a funeral procession. We're under the jurisdiction of the former SLAVE MASTERS' children. This is their stolen country and we're the progeny of Africa's stolen SLAVES. We'll NEVER be seen as AMERICANS; only in YOUR dreams.
