On this 27th day of October in the year of our lord 2003 we black women are forced to come before you with a petition with regard to your husband's work. Your husband Ward Connelly has taken it upon himself to go on a mission that is detrimental to the well-being of we collective black Americans. We black women of America seek to get you to reason with his disposition that the damage he is doing may be aborted. The issue at hand, Affirmative action.
We are well aware that he is referred to as the ˜Father of Proposition 209' and we know he does not understand that he has done a disservice, incalcuble disservice, to black humanity. We have heard your husband's idea of rationale on the matter. We would like for you to take time out to hear the truth with regard to the importance of Afffirmative Action. You see Affirmative action is legalized black power of which we as a people are very proud of as it literal is written in the the blood, sweat and tears of many of our beloved black people who came before us. These valiant people are they who suffered the wrath of white male run America for wanting the freedoms the Constitution promised us as a people.
As so, Blacks fought to get legalized black power forever on the books to protect black people from prejudice white people. A permanent bill or law is necessary. It is solely your husband and his by and large white followers who are blinded to this reality. Yet this reality, is our heritage! A mark on America's books, marked with the stroke of a black finger, if you will. It is our collective black "John Hancock" given to American law, the necessary and crucial factor needed to make America work for black people. Unfortunately, It is none other than your husband who is blindly, going about stripping this prideful black heritage.
Understand this real significance with regard to the importance of Affirmative action is the crucial key that your husband doesn't get! The fact that a bill, a legalized bill, is on the books is a good fact! It protects from fallible white male nature that to this day keeps racism that horrible evil, alive and thriving. The only way we can equalize the matter is to keep a ˜safety net' legally on the books to restrain the madness. It is a good thing for any land, people, government on planet earth. Yet, your husband has been tricked by prejudice white males into seeing the ˜safety net' of ˜common sense' called Afffirmative action as a ˜bad thing that hurts white males' when it is not. You see your husband seems blinded to the reality that though blacks arose and fought a valiant fight to put the Civil Rights laws on the books, white males did not adhere to the law and so an additional bill had to be added to force them to adhere to the bill. This 1973 enacted bill is known as Affirmative action. It should be law, permanent law.
That black people were resisted all the way by the whites is proof that the whites need a permanent legalized watch, or safety net, to keep them from resisting doing right and just to their fellow black Americans. That they complained about the bill from day one, to the present is further ˜common sense' proof that the bill is needed. You see, the whites that held the power then, still hold the power now. That is, the white hierarchies to be exact. These control 100% of the wealth and resources of America. These, control the collective American tax dollar and where it will and will not go. These control the federal power and they alone, wield it according to the white male nature that is in them. These control the entire judicial hierarchy and racism abounds in this arena. These control the entire educational hierarchy and it is their white rule that decides what information will go into the textbooks of America to breed all Americans and there is racism that still abounds there. These control the military might of America and it is the white male nature that decides who will and will not be it's target and unfortunately Mrs. Connerly blacks are still racially targeted via the ˜police military' and on many other levels. It is these white males who run and control corporate America and racism still abounds therein.
The disparity in the numbers is not as your husband is deceived to believe because ˜blacks aren't qualified,' it is because of who holds the power. The wealth of America that grew from whites savagely enslaving blacks is in the hands of white males. They have the power to pick and choose whom they will and but for Affirmative action their ˜will' will be unleashed to pick whom they will, if you know what I mean. It is in this way, that a necessary law for black advantage up the ladder is permanently needed, not because we need a ˜hand-out' but because we need a ˜permanent legal ˜bill' and ˜law' to restrain white racist nature of those who act on such a horrible evil. In other words, unlike your husband, 'WE DO NOT TRUST EMPOWERED WHITE MALES!
The only thing that opened the door to stop white male racist nature was laws and bills on the books Mrs. Connerly. Laws and bills are not meant as ˜temporal' things to resolve a unresolvable human nature problem such as racism, rather it is put on the book to restrain that nature that America might be equal to all its citizens. Not just the white male power structure who controls and wields the power. In light of the fact that obvious racism exists and human nature is what it is, we use the common sense appeal to you with regard to Affirmative action. We appeal to your reason and common sense to see that if racism still exists today, then today, tomorrow forever, there needs to be safety nets on the books to restrain white racism. We appeal to your logic to see that if the white power structure is complaining about fairness with a law on the book, it shows they are not ready to be fair with one off the book. To take AA off the book will give the white male power structure the same un-restrained power they had over blacks in the segregation era and who then will be able to contain their madness?
See then, that affirmative action is not the problem, ignorance of affirmative action is the problem and your husband possesses that ignorance in abundance and therefore must be stopped! That he has reduced black women to having to appeal to a white woman to stop him from giving white males un-restrained power is proof that affirmative action is needed as the ˜equalizer.' However, because the lives of our sons and daughters are being put imminently in danger by your husband's blindness to the real matter at hand, we women for love of our collective black sons and daughters so approach you. We approach you to reason with your husband and get him to not only cease and desist, but get to repairing the damage that he has foolishly wrought.
We Thank You!
