African American Homeland, Honor, Glory, Power and Independence North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, are the Eight States I proclaim the African American Homeland.
This is an expansion of the original 5 States Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Black majority counties adjacent to this area in Arkansas, Texas, Tennessee, Florida and North Carolina. That was first claimed by the Malcolm X Society and the Group on Advance Leadership for the Republic Of New Afrika on March 31, 1968.
The original proposal for the Republic of New Afrika was for total Independence from the United States of America. The African American Homeland will not be an Independent Nation, but a Regional bloc of States with no more or no less rights than any other State in the United States of America.
The African American Homeland States or the regional bloc of states will have an official name, Economic Community of Eight Southern States (ECESS), its mission is to promote Economic and Political Cooperation across the 8 State Southern region.
This same region including Florida, Texas and Virginia are also claimed by the whites as the Confederate States. Cities and town across the South are still showcasing the confederate flag.
(I would loved to include Florida to the African American Homeland, however Florida population of 19 million and only 16% Black American is to large. To control Florida, there has to be a huge legal or illegal Black immigrant influx from the Caribbean, South America and Africa).
The first Africans brought in by the British arrived in Jamestown, Virginia in 1619. The Spanish brought in Africans to St, Augustine. Florida in 1581. From early 1790 until the late 1890′s Black Americans actually out numbered the Whites in the South. Therefore, we have the same or more rights to claim the South our homeland as the Whites. Did the Blacks claim the South as their own? I trying to find this information, Nonetheless the Black Americans never had their own southern flag.
The 1900 census, the African American population began to decline in the South. The reason for the decline was the Great Migration. The Great Migration was the movement of millions of African American out of the rural South, to the urban Northeast, Midwest and West cities that lasted until 1970.
Rural people, share croppers, farmers with little skills and no big city experience, it’s hard to say if the Great Migration was a good idea. But, I wish it was better organized.
However, if you look at the present situation in the west, mid-west and northeast cities, high crime, gang problems, single mothers, low marriage rates, high unemployment, low home ownership, high rent, low business ownership, poor and crowded schools, despair, poor health, bad nutrition, 80% of the Black American population live in urban areas covering land the size of Maryland. Living in crowded conditions on top of one another is the reason for Black on Black crime. I can at least say we have overstayed our welcome in the North.
What The Economic Community of Eight Southern States Offer
With a geographical area covering 375,000 square miles and a population of 46,000,000, the ideal racial make up of the region are 90/10 model 90% African-American, 8% White Americans, 2% others or the 80/20 model 80% African-American, 15% White, 3% non Black Hispanics and 2% Asians and others. Hispanic population is actually much larger but most will proclaim to be of African descent.
The 8 State Southern Region is Strategically located with several major sea ports on the Atlantic Ocean Wilmington, Charleston, Savannah and a few sea ports access on the Gulf of Mexico New Orleans (one of the largest and busiest seaports in the world), Mobile, Alabama and Biloxi, Mississippi some seaports have to be enlarged.
Major Highway access run through the 8 State Southern region, with Interstate 95 offering accessibility to Florida, Virginia, Washington D.C, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts. Interstate 77 giving transport to Ohio, Buffalo, New York to Toronto Canada, Interstate 75 extending access to Florida, Detroit, Michigan, Interstate 65 giving access to Indiana and Chicago, highway 55 offering transport through St. Louis to Chicago. Interstate 10 and 20 giving mobility to major cities in Texas to cities in Mexico, to Phoenix Arizona, San Diego and Los Angeles, and interstate 40 presenting mobility to Los Angeles.
The Mississippi River give cruise ships, riverboat, barges and container ships access to the Gulf of Mexico, New Orleans to the heartland cities of St. Louis, Davenport, Iowa and Minneapolis/ St. Paul.
International Airport in Atlanta offers a quick gateway to Africa, Europe, Mexico, Brazil, South America and the World. More International hubs are needed in the 8 State Southern region.
Major Railroad lines CSX, Union Pacific, Amtrak and Norfolk Southern, run through the 8 State Southern Region. My point is the 8 State Southern Region is not isolated from other geographical areas.
The climate is warm and humid. There are mild winters and long hot summers. Appalachian Mountains runs through the region from Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, South Carolina to northern Alabama, the highest point east of the Mississippi river is Mount Mitchell in North Carolina 6,684 feet.
The area has good soil for growing plants and is known for its large plantations and commercial farming. Forest trees covers 60% of the 8 State Southern Regions total land area.
The 8 State Southern region has a long general coast line 1,082 miles with many sandy beaches on the Atlantic coast and the Gulf coast. The 8 State Southern Region has one of the best modern infrastructures a developed nation can offer.
The total GDP of the Economic Community of Eight Southern States is 1,817,800,000,000 trillion dollars. If the 8 State Southern Region was an Independent country it would have the 10th largest Economy in the World.
In 2012 the 8 State Southern Region collected about 300 billion dollars in federal tax revenue. this does not include 200 billion dollars, in extra payments the federal government transfer to the State such as medicare payments, welfare payments, social security payments, disability payments, jobless claims payments, federal infrastructure projects, federal government employees, including military personnel, federal government contractors and other federal entitlements.
The 500 billion dollars the 8 State Southern Region receive from federal government transfer payment is more than the total budgets of countries such as Australia 498 billion dollars, Russia 440 billion, Netherlands 420 billion, India 325 billion, South Korea 296 billion, Mexico 292 billion and Saudi Arabia 221 billion dollars. and less than Spain 545 billion, Canada 687 billion, Brazil 978 billion, United Kingdom 986 billion dollar budget. I must state, Russia spends 22% of it’s national budget or 88 billion dollars per year on it’s military alone. The USA 640 billion military budget is the responsibility of the federal government not the State. China has the second largest military spending of 188 billion dollars.
National Guards, State Militias, State Defense Force; The Constitution of the United States. Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution contains a series of “militia clauses,” outlining the States right to create Militias. National Guard and Air National Guard are under the control of the individual States, with the State Governor acting as commander in chief. However, the president can activate the National Guard and place it under federal control. National guards are typically called into action by a State Governor for officially declared emergency of the State, weather related emergency, civil unrest, terrorist attack and used for security details at State borders, airports and seaports.
About half of the States in the United States also maintain a State Defense Force or State Militias that operate under the sole authority of a state government . A State Defense Force is separate from the State National Guard, it receives no federal funding, uniforms and equipment are purchase and maintained by the State or the individuals. The federal government recognizes State Defense Forces under 32 U.S.C. § 109 which provides that state defense forces as a whole may not be called, ordered, or drafted into the armed forces of the United States, thus preserving their separation from the National Guard.
Nearly every state has laws authorizing State Defense Forces or State Militias, and 22 states, plus the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, have active State Defense Forces with different levels of activity, support, and strength. State Defense Forces generally operate with emergency management and homeland security missions. Most SDFs are organized as Army units, but some States have Air and Naval units as well.
Electricity Production; In 2013 the 8 State Southern Region produced 639,000 (GWh) Gigawatts per hour of Electricity, ranked 6 in the world. This electricity production is equal to or more than countries such as Germany 633,000 GWh, Canada 626,000 GWh, France 568,000 GWh, Brazil 557,000 GWh, South Korea 534,000 GWh, United Kingdom 356,000 GWh and Mexico 293,600 GWh. The 8 State Southern Region has 21 Nuclear Power Plants.
It’s very important to mention that there were 3,195 electric utilities in the USA. Of these, 2,020 publicly or government owned, including 10 federal utilities, 932 were rural electric cooperatives and 243 were investor-owned utilities. However, 80% of the electricity in the U.S is generated by private investor-owned utilities.
Oil Refineries and Productions; Louisiana produces most of the oil in the 8 States region, Arkansas, Mississippi and Alabama also has some quantity. The 8 State Southern Region has 32 oil refineries, including 19 in Louisiana. Only Texas has more oil refineries 26 and California has 16. Two oil refineries in Louisiana, 10th Garyville Refinery and the 11th Baton Rouge Refinery are ranked largest in the world. Louisiana refines oil that are produce in many other States and Countries. Oil refineries are some of the most expensive infrastructures to build.
The Southern States has a great number of military installations, bases and ranges. These military bases are huge contributors to the local and State economy.
All 8 States in the African American Homeland will have Black-American Governors and 16 African American Senators and 66 Congressmen and women are of African-American descent. They are our representation on the Federal government level.
Institutions are Key to Development, Government is the most paramount of Institutions. Government permits the creation and support of other Institutions like Businesses, Corporations, Professional Organizations, Colleges, Universities, Research Organizations, Non-Profit Organizations, Banks, Stock Exchange, others Financial Institutions, Military, Police, Intelligence Units, Strategic Planning Organizations and others.
The three levels of government are the federal government which governs the entire country, the State government which governs States, and the local governments which governs the counties, cities, towns and villages. If we can take control of State and local governments, only the federal government will be out of our sphere of control. However, compare to the State and Local governments, the federal government has been more fair and just when it comes to the treatment of African Americans and other minorities. Most Jim Crow and Segregation laws were State and local laws.
State Government is the second most powerful Institution to the federal Government,”Please Search, The Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution” The federal government possesses only those powers delegated to it by the states or the people. The powers not delegated to the federal government by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. To have control of State Government, is to have control or have the abilities to make and enforce laws, Charter Banks and Corporations, Regulate Intrastate Businesses and take measures for public education and health, principally make laws that will support the advancement of Black Americans. Power of the State *Issues Licenses *Regulate Intrastate (within the state) Businesses *Conduct elections *Establish local government *Ratify Amendments to the Constitution *Take measures for public health and safety *May exert powers of the Constitution not delegated to the national government.
State Rights will be the call of many Black Americans once we take control of State government and institutions. I can see Black Americans becoming more conservative than Republicans, when it comes to social issues. Low taxes, the right to bear arms, strong national military, strong State Defense Forces or State Militias, Family values, smaller central government, stronger state government, pro Black Business, limited abortions, making divorce difficult to obtain, tough on illegal immigration, protecting traditional marriage, Leaders should serve people, not special interest groups, Crack down on frivolous law suits, Culture should respect and protect life, freedom of speech.
Black Americans usually doesn’t trust the Constitutions or the State and local governments, because the Southern States had use the Constitution and State powers to persecute, intimidate, mistreat, abuse, take advantaged of and cheat Black Americans. Now 2013, I feel Black Americans have the opportunity to used the Constitution and State Institutions to it’s own advantage.
The State also have powers to *Collect taxes *Build infrastructure *Borrow money *Establish Courts *Make and enforce Laws *Charter Banks and Corporations *Spend money for the general welfare of the citizens *Take Private Property For Public Purpose, With Just Compensation.
The State Government collect Taxes, Income Taxes, Corporate Taxes, Excise tax, Personal Property Taxes, Sales Taxes and other Taxes and collect Licenses fees, If you want to do Business in the State you have to get a license and pay the fees.
The taxes, licenses fees, permits, fines and other revenue generators are use to support the State and other Institutions such as colleges and universities, hospitals, fire department, police department, public schools, state and local government workers, elected official, the poor, the elderly and build infrastructure like roads, bridges, seaports, airports, public utilities, electrical power, telephone lines, sewage, water and others.
There exists a second level of sovereign government in the United States after the federal government, those of the 50 STATES of which compose the United States. State governments are bodies sovereign, like the federal government, they have sovereign existence deriving from the consent of the sovereign people of their territories who created them and wrote their state constitution; they are not bodies corporate, as they are not created by the acquisition of the federal government and exist with or without that Government’s consent. As sovereigns, they have the power to hold radical title to land, to exercise the four fundamental powers, taxation, eminent domain, police power, and escheat, as well as numerous other powers, including the power to grant charters, and implicit in that power to charter is the power to charter corporations, which they do, extensively. The vast majority of non-governmental corporations in the United States are chartered by the States of the United States, and not the federal government, this includes most charitable corporations. These include municipal corporation and state chartered and owned corporations. Municipal corporations are public corporations that have devolved, democratic control over local matters within a geographic region; they are often styled villages, towns, townships, boroughs, cities, or counties. Though these municipal corporations are often regulated and sometimes financed by the state government, and often can collect taxes, they are arms-length, non-sovereign, devolved public entities, and a state government which charters them is not legally responsible for their debts in the event of a municipal bankruptcy.
The State is all powerful, I can’t emphasized this enough. The whites in power understand the sovereignty Of State governments. We fail to understand the levels of governments and the branches of State governments. We tend to ask the President for help on State and local issues where he has limited authority.You will noticed that the white power structure will easily give up big city government powers to Black people or minorities, but will never give up State Power. The city has limited powers, the city can’t make laws, it has ordinances. The city can’t Charter Corporations, Banks, Insurance Companies or Charity organizations, it can issue business licenses. The city is dependent on the State for funding. A city usually has a small land area, average covers 100 square miles. The State has the power to dissolve a city out of existence. Example, The State of Michigan has plans of dissolving the city of Detroit and absorbing it into Wayne County. Detroit will become the largest town in America, absolutely no power.
To carved an Independent Nation out of the United States of America will take an Act of War. However, taking control of the 8 Southern States Political and Government Institutions could be done legally and through peaceful democratic means.
The only way African Americans can compete with White Americans is if we had matching Institutions and it all start with our own State or 8 State Southern Region.
Civil Rights versus Power, While fighting for our civil rights, the right to go to school with white students, the right to eat at white restaurants, the right to shop in white owned department stores, the right to equal pay, right to vote, right to white University education, the right to not be discriminated against, the right not to be harass by the police, the right to equal opportunity, and Reparations was justified and Historic,
We could have taken care of all the above grievances by fighting for our Natural Rights (Power) land, economics, business development, self governing, control of 6 or 8 States. And if they continue to treat us unfairly in their State, then they better not come to our State.
The relation with the other states will be reciprocal, example we will not comply with Extradition orders with States that are known to be hostile to our citizens. If they treat our 8 State regional citizens with kindness and respect. We would treat them with kindness and respect.
The key to State power is the control of the three branches of the State Government. 1) Executive branch, which is the governor, 2) The legislative branch which is divide into the upper house (The Senate) and lower house (House of Representative); 3) And the judicial branch which is the State Supreme Court.
1) The State Senate and the House of Representative must be in African American control with overwhelming numbers, this institution is responsible for making the laws.
2) We have to have control of the highest judicial authority of each 8 States, that is the State Supreme Court, the State Supreme Courts either upholds or overturns a State law.
Some State Supreme Court Justice are appointed by the Governors, others are elected by the citizens of that State. All Supreme Court Justice in each 8 State most be African American. All lower courts, appellate courts and other State courts should have African American Judges, therefore we will have control of the 8 southern states legal court system. We will demand as well that federal district court judges and federal circuit court judges that are appointed by the President are African American.
3) The Governor executes or implements the laws. The Governor also has authority to appoint Black Americans Officials to positions throughout their State.
4) Every State Government Official Positions will transfer over to African Americans From University and College Presidents, to Chief of Police of all cities, counties and towns, Wardens of every Prisons and Jails, Leaders of every State Public Utility Companies, Every State Park and Recreation areas,Mayors of Every City and Town, City Managers , Councilman of every City and Town, to Commissioners of every State, County or City are Black American.
5) 80/20 model 80% of all State employees are African Americans, 85% of County, City, Municipalities employees are African Americans, 90% of Police Officers, State Police, Fire Fighters, Park Rangers, Emergency personnel, State Guards, State Militia Groups are African American. These are secured government jobs for millions or more Black Americans.
6) Imagine University North Carolina, North Carolina State U, Clemson U., South Carolina, Georgia University, Georgia Tech. University of Alabama, Auburn University, Mississippi State U., University of Mississippi, Louisiana State U, U of Arkansas, University of Tennessee, University of Memphis are State control institutions and are predominately about 80% Black American Students.
Private universities in the eight States Duke, Wake Forest, Emory, Tulane, Vanderbilt and others will have no choice but to conform to the demographic make-up of the State, or sell their asset to African American Investors. Faculty and Staff of 50% African American and Students 60% African American are sufficient.
If the Eight State region need to graduate 200,000 Doctors, 300,000 Engineers 250,000 Lawyers and 100,000 MBA’s. Then a program must be established with the collaboration of the State Government, local Government and the Universities and Colleges to implement this plan to a reality. It takes government institution for this task.
Business Development 7) 75% of the land are owned by the State and local Government and Black American Private Citizens. 80% of all Farm land, Ranches and Family Forest in the State are controlled by African Americans.
While large white owned corporations may dominate in the African American Homeland, the 8 State Southern Region governments will have programs, policies, laws, regulations, and rules that will help Black owned businesses and corporations compete in the region.
80% of all Businesses are owned by Black Americans. 90% of all State, County an local Government Contracts go to Black Americans Companies.
Multinational Corporation are a challenge to deal with, however, the 8 State Southern Region officials will negotiate with some Corporations and offer or encouraged them to unbundle their asset in the 8 State region and sell to Black American Corporations.
For Example, Kroger Grocery Company the largest grocery chain in the country will be given incentives to sell their Kroger grocery chain and Harris Teeter chain asset in the 8 State Southern region to African American Investors. We will also negotiate with other chain stores such as CVS, Walgreens and others.
Franchises, Restaurants, Retail, Car Rentals, Hotels, Services and others. Franchisor Corporations are encouraged or given incentives to increase Black American franchisee ownership opportunities in the 8 State Southern Region to 60% to 80% of all partnerships.
The Regional Economic and Development Authority (REDA) will negotiate with the National Football League Franchises, to transfer Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints, Tennessee Titans, and Carolina Black Panthers to African American ownership.
National Basketball Association, Atlanta Hawks, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Pelicans and the Charlotte Hornets (Michael Jordan) owned by African American investors.
Major League Baseball, Atlanta Braves transfer to Black American ownership. The Regional Economic and Development Authority will try to procure two more teams into the African American Homeland States.
National Hockey League, Carolina Hurricanes, Nashville Predators transfer to Black American investors, however if there’s no market for professional hockey in the 8 State Southern Region then the teams will leave the region. But I think at least one professional hockey team will be profitable in African American Homeland States because of regional pride, regional support, competition, marketing possibilities and sport is a sport.
Automotive Dealerships, Ford, General Motors, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota, BMW, Mercedes and other car manufacturers are encouraged or given incentives to increase Black American car dealership ownership opportunities in the 8 State Southern Region to 75%- 80% of all partnerships. The Regional Economic and Development Authority (REDA), an independent regional agency will help identify and finance potential car dealership owners.
However a company like Walmart which has a strong global Brand will have African Americans in most upper management and middle management positions, its suppliers, contractors, distributors and others are mostly Black American Companies, we need very knowledgeable people in this area to see what situation will benefit the region the most.
Every outside Corporations must be handled on a case by case bases. A Manufacturer of motor vehicles, vehicle parts, electronics goods, electrical goods,Computers, building material, medical devices, medicine, Steel, Food processing and other from anywhere in the world are given incentives to move into the 8 State Southern region to take advantage of quick and easy processing of starting a business in the region, low taxes, lower land prices and leases, lower labor cost, skilled work force, lower cost of doing business and access to a greater U.S domestic market of 316,000,000 people.
If we keep the cost of doing business in the Economic Community of Eight Southern States low or lower than the other competitive regions, corporations and manufacturers will not leave the region under any circumstances.
Utility Companies, Natural Monopolies or Critical Infrastructures should be control by the State or African American Corporations, Regional Phone Companies, State Power Companies, Cable Television Network and Providers Companies, Gas Utility Companies, Digital Mobile Phone Networks, Local Water Companies, State Sewage, State Waste Management companies, Internet Providers, Radio stations, Television Broadcasting Networks, Print Media, News Papers shall be sold to the State (there should be hundreds of local and State wide newspaper companies or a few companies owning hundreds of local and State wide newspapers), Become State Own Enterprise (SOE) or repackage and sold to African American Investors.
8) Once we have Political control, most previous State Laws shall be repeal, Congressional and State Legislative districts will be redrawn and the Constitution of the 8 Southern States must be rewritten. The 8 State Southern region can pass their own Reparation and Land Reform laws.
9) To build wealth in the Black Community, I proposed a Formation of a One trillion dollar Stock exchange, headquartered in Atlanta Georgia. With the cooperation of the 8 State Governments, Economic Community of Eight Southern States, African American Bank Institutions, 8 State Pension Funds, City Workers Pension funds, Teacher’s Pension Funds, Mutual Funds, Insurance Companies, African American Investment Bankers, and International Investors. Most countries of the world have a Stock Market. These governments know the quickest way to build wealth or raise money in a poor third world country is through a Stock Market. Most third world country’s Stock Market capitalization equal or are 50% of the nation’s GDP. For example Philippines Gross Domestic Product is 250 billion dollars. Their Stock Market capitalization is 250 billion dollars as well. Black American’s GDP after taxes and without government expenditures is over one trillion dollars. Therefore an African American Stock Exchange has a potential capitalization of over one trillion dollars and will be the 17th largest Stock Exchange in the world. Just below Spain 1,146 trillion and above Brazil 950 billion.The Southern Stock Exchange will be used to buy up companies and other corporate asset in the 8 State Southern Region and elsewhere in the world.
10) I proposed a Commodities Exchange based in Memphis, Tennessee where agriculture products and other raw materials such as sugar, cotton, maize, milk products, pork bellies,other agriculture products; oils, metals and others are traded. This help Farmers get a guaranteed price for their products.
Bank Institutions must be established, Regional Banks, State Banks, Local Banks and Credit Union with a minimum total Bank Asset of 2.5 trillion dollars. Other Financial Institution should be created including Life Insurance Companies, other Insurance Companies, Investment Banking, Pension Funds, Mutual Funds, Hedge Funds, Mortgage Corporations, Fannie Mae Type Regional Government Corporation, Consumer Lending and Credit Corporation, and others.
In 2012 there were 21 Black American owned banks with a total bank deposit of 5 billion dollars. However, Black American bank deposit holders have over 600 to 800 billion dollars in thousands of other banks throughout the country. None the less this 600 billion dollars is not being circulated in the Black Community.
Most of the 300 billion dollar budget of the 8 State Southern Region would be deposited into an African American controlled Regional, State or local banks. A dollar capital into a bank can result in ten dollars of loans to Black owned businesses, Black families and other Black Institutions, a multiplier effect that can ultimately lead to a creation of more money and faster rate of economic growth.
With a smaller defined geographical area and a concentrated Black American consumer market an African American distribution network of goods and services of any kind can be more easily established, throughout the 8 State Region.
African American Companies will have incentives to handle most distribution, wholesale and retail of Goods and Services in the 8 State Southern Region. With this, it would be more feasible for Black American investors to start a Beer Corporations, Wine and Spirit Corporations, Health Care, Grocery Stores, Food Processing Corporation, Department Stores, Retail Store Corporations, Fast Food Restaurants, Fine Dining Restaurants, Jewelry Stores, Shoes Manufacturing, Tennis Shoes Corporations, Chemical Manufacturing Corporation, Clothes and Textile Manufacturing, Plastic Goods Manufacturing, Paper Products Corporations, Furniture Manufacturing, Toys and Sports Goods Manufacturing, Electrical Goods Manufacturing, Electronic Goods Manufacturing, Construction Corporations, Mining Corporations, Computers and Devices Corporation, Software Development Corporations, Metal Works Manufacturing, Drug Manufacturing Companies, Publishing Companies, Retail Gas Stations, Convenience Store Franchise, Hotels, Resorts and Motels, Casinos, and the list goes on and on.
With 36 million Black Americans concentrated into the 8 State Southern Region, instead of 46 million African Americans dispersed into 50 States. Black American consumers are unwittingly compelled to do business with Black American owned companies and Black owned corporations and small Black owned businesses are by calculation forced to service Black American consumers.
Education and Skills Development Our elected officials and citizens of the Eight State Southern Region priority is to educate our youth, not put them in prison.
Having control of the Eight State Region Educational system, we can make major changes, for example,(requiring all public and private school students to wear school uniforms). At any rate we need Doctors of all fields, Engineers of all Fields, Lawyers, Business School Graduates (MBA’s) Computer Scientists, Economists, Physicist, Town Planners, Accountants (CPA),City Planners, Agriculture Scientists, Architects, Professors, Teachers, Military Officers, Pilots, Political Scientists, Writers, Language, International law, International Business and others.
College or University study is not for everyone, therefore the 8 State Southern Region will establish a comprehensive Apprenticeship Educational System to insure a highly skilled work force that will command high pay, benefits and a productive society.
Apprenticeship programs would include Agriculture science, Animal husbandry, Aquaculture, Agroforestry and others. Other Apprenticeship programs are aircraft mechanic, auto mechanic, boat building, ship repair, commercial fishing, computer technician, computer programmers, welders, fitters, plumbers, iron workers, sheet metal workers, carpenters, plasterer, bricklayers, painters, electrician, drafting , operating engineers, furniture makers, culinary arts, baker, nursing technician, pharmacist technician, jewelry makers, bank tellers, tax service, fashion designers, glass and ceramic artist, audio-video production and others. A small team of laymen should be able to build their own homes.
A high percentage of individuals with at least an 8th grade education, that has basic reading, writing, and arithmetic skills would be able to not just qualify, but do well in these Apprenticeship programs.
Our Top 1%, the Wealthy class are the wealth builders and largest land owners and Philanthropist. Will run and control the largest most profitable Black American Corporations. They are the leaders and major Stakeholders of the African American Homeland economy and politics.
Our most intelligent, most capable top 10% are the Entrepreneurs, Business Owners. They are the innovators, job creators and medium Stakeholders in the African American Homeland economy and politics.
Our brightest and most competent top 25% includes the Professional class, upper Managers, Political leaders medium size land owners. They are smaller but significant Stakeholders in the African American Homeland economy and politics
The Top 50% includes the Professionals, middle, lower managers, small business owners, small land owners, lower political leaders, leaders of State and local government agencies, skilled labor and others. Run the day to day business of the African American Homeland and are smaller Stakeholders
The top 80% includes Private sector workers. other Public sector workers, home owners and consumers, are the back-bone of the African American Homeland.
The lowest 20% are dependent on the guidance, leadership, mentorship, charity and efficiency of the higher 80%. Meaning we’re all in this together.
Entrepreneurship to me is equally important than education, Entrepreneurship is the only way to break the bondage of dependency on the government and getting a job.
Entrepreneurship is risky, but once you have the know how, which come from experience you’ll be fine. I learn from the Chinese, Don’t try to re-invent the wheel, just copy and paste the best business model ideas that fit your personality and go for it.
While profit is the result of successful business, it shouldn’t be why you are in business, you start a business to solve problems and serve others, if you do that profit will follow.
I’m proposing a Capitalist system with Government intervention or action in the Economic Community of Eight Southern States, especially in the first 10 or 15 years. Government intervention most be prescribed because Black American are far behind in the economic development game. Communism and Socialism will not work in today’s highly competitive global markets. If we want to compete with the Chinese, India, Brazil, South Korea, Japan, Europe, Russia, other States and nations, then we must have the most innovative, creative and efficient system in the world.
Demographics Of The Region 2013 census the population of the 8 State Southern Region are 45,390,928, with African American’s 12,000,000 people or 26% of the population. North Carolina 23% African American, South Carolina 28%, Georgia 33%, Alabama 26% Mississippi 37%, Louisiana 32% Black Americans, Arkansas 16%, and Tennessee 17% African American.
It is African American Natural Rights to rule over the 8 Southern States of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee.
One asked, how do we acquire control of these 8 Southern States?
1) We can petition the Federal Government for the rights with 1 million Signatures.
2) African Americans have not asked of any specific programs from the President. We need more than jobs and more education. We can Asked President Barack Obama to use Executive Powers to create an 8 state African American Homeland. However, The President has limited powers and influence on State and local issues.
3)One million people March on Washington D.C, a March of 100,000 people in cities across the United States.
4)Sue The States or the Federal Government in the Courts.
5)Sue the United State Government through the United Nation
6)Boycott major events, It will make the United States look extremely bad throughout of the World, if African-American Athletes Boycott the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. African American Athletes boycott NCAA Major College Football and Major College Basketball. African American NFL and NBA Athletes Boycott the first few games of the season. Top recruiting Black American Athletes refuse to play football or Basketball in the 8 Southern States.
7) Total Social or Civil disobedience
8) Hunger Strikes in the Jails and Prisons, there are over 1 million Black men in prison in the USA.
9) African American government workers not showing up for work for a few days, basically shouting down the government.
10) The Black Congressional Caucus filibustering on the House floor.
The Plan AAHA
Instead of waiting on the government, I suggest that we make a modern day mass migration back to the 8 Southern States. There are 46,000,000 African Americans in the USA. We are a nation of people in a nation.
There are under 30,000,000 White folks living in the 8 State Southern region. There are 12,000,000 African American in the same region. By concentrating our efforts and resources on a regional level, we actually have numeral advantage.
The White race in the region are much older and their numbers are declining rapidly.
To make a simple majority, we have to move additional 20,000,000 African Americans into the region. to have a Super Majority we have to move 24,000,000 additional African Americans into the region.
Who ever has the majority of the votes control the State.
This will have a profound effect, first of all things will get worst before things get better. This would cause a major migration of 3/4 or 75% of the White population out of the region, White’s don’t want to be governed by Blacks (White Flight).
It has been demonstrated thousands of times through-out American history, that once the Black population reach a certain percentage of the local population, the white population will begin to move out in masses, this time out of the 8 State Southern Region.
Firstly fear of increase crime, but mostly fear of lower property value.
The remainder of the white population are giving a choice to stay or leave. The whites that want to stay are welcomed. The whites who want to leave must be given just compensation for their properties. Whites leaving the region will cause a devaluation of property, making it less costly for the State, Black owned businesses and corporations, families and individuals to buy land, properties and other assets.
For the final count, the White or non-Black population should be no more than 90/10 model or 80/20 model of the 8 State Southern Region’s population.
What make African Americans different from the Mexicans is that we are American Citizens, as a result we can move anywhere in the USA take up residency and register to vote in less than in some places a few weeks others 2 months.This mobility and our youth give us key advantages.
The Mexicans will soon make up more than half of the population of California, however half of the Mexican adult population are either non-citizens or illegal aliens, therefore their potential political participation rate is much lower than their actual population size. This will change in 15 to 20 years
Nonetheless, the whites are leaving the beautiful State of California in droves because of the overwhelming presents of the Mexican and Central American population.
(In the next 20 to 30 years Hispanics will have the Super majority in the States of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Majority of the Hispanic population will be citizens, hence they will have the right to vote. Therefore the four States mentioned above will have 4 Mexican Governors, 8 Mexican Senators and numerous Mexican Congressmen, majority of the State Legislatures and State Supreme Court will be Mexicans, the cities, counties, small towns, local courts and Public School Systems will be run and control by Mexicans. Spanish can very well be the language of Government and Business to discriminate against all others instead of race being an issue).
Go South Black Americans African American living outside of the 8 State Southern Region have some type of historical kinship with the region. You were probably born in Chicago, but your Grand Parents probably migrated there from Mississippi or Tennessee during the 1940′s.Talk with your family members and research what area in the 8 state Southern Region your family migrated from. We all understand why Black Americans went North, Northeast and West, but after awhile, we have overstayed our welcome. I believed the great migration out of the South, should have been temporary. Just to buy time to get more skills, ideas, University education, confidence and the end of the Jim Crow Laws. By the early 1970′s we should have migrated by the millions back to the South. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 made the African American Homeland States a possibility.
Just imagine for a minute, If Black Americans had stayed in the South and fought for their Natural rights, by the 1960′s blacks would had majority population of 9 States, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee and Florida. Living in rural areas and small towns they would continued to be very conservative and producing large families, by 2010 Black folks would have been about 20% of the USA population (64 million Black Americans). Migrating to crowded, polluted, immoral cities in the midwest, northeast and west destroyed the family structure and greatly reduce the number of children per Black female.
After careful study, I calculated that 80% of the Black American population, that is 36 million people, live in urban and inner suburban areas covering less than 10,000 square miles. Just imagine 36 million people living in a State the size of Maryland. The African American Homeland offers 375,000 square miles of beautiful scenery, mountains, hills, valleys, forest, Bayous, lakes, rivers, beaches, inlets, coves, just smaller than the land mass of France and Spain combined or Texas and California combined, smaller than Egypt, but larger than Nigeria, Venezuela,Pakistan and Turkey.
There is already a natural progression Of African Americans migrating back to the South. Some are retirees, some are educated upwardly mobile professionals that see opportunities in the South, others want to get away from the extremely cold weather in the North or high cost of living in the Northeast, others are being forced out of Los Angeles by other ethnic groups and migrating to the South.
What ever the reason are, Black Americans who migrate south, must come with awareness, act with purpose and participate aggressively in the democratic process, We must cooperate together to make the 8 State Southern Region the best place to live, work, retire, play. The best place for educational attainment, to become wealthy, to raise a family, family security, cultural freedom, religious freedoms, no police harassment and feel normal. The best place for Entrepreneur Freedom, freedom to associate with like minded people, ability to get Business capital or loans, political freedom… ability to vote with a criminal record, ability to run for Public Office.
If you are just looking for a job, or worry about keeping your job, you can stay in the other 42 States. But, if you want power, business opportunities, land, respect, real freedom, responsibility, support of your ideas and creativity and a future for your family, you should come down to the 8 State Southern Region.
Once a person is freed from an oppressed mind, you will be shocked what they are capable of doing.
To me most African American in prison today are Political Prisoners. Once we have political control we will try to introduce a program with the Eight State Governors to Pardon and Expunge most none violent criminal records of African Americans, so they can start a new life.
You must hire a lawyer, go through certain Leadership programs and Pledge Allegiance to the 8 State Southern region. The 8 Southern States will also have a Prisoner exchange Program with others States. Once in Custody of the 8 Southern States, Individual’s records will be reviewed by a panel and recommendation then suggested, if the Prisoner’s sentence should be shorten or Leadership training and other training programs are needed before an early release. Then their criminal records are reviewed, then all criminal records Expunge and Pledge Allegiance to the 8 State Southern Region.
Our Black boys and young men are being targeted by the Federal, State and local governments, this must end. Poverty is really not the main problem, however when you grow up on a small island of Black poverty, surrounded by a sea of White privilege and wealth, even a nine years old knows something’s not right. The enemy is clear and obvious to see.
Integration is a failure, multiculturalism does not work, I call for a separate development of predominately African American States.
Black Americans Not Forced To Live In The South The Economic Community of Eight Southern States will become a Regional Home, Cultural Home, Economic Home, Political Home, Spiritual Home, Religious Home, Business or Organization Headquarters, Traditional Home , Retirement destination, Safe Haven, Historical Home (I proposed a memorial day commemorating the end to 250 years of slavery, April 9, 2015 will mark 150 years out of Slavery); Investment destination (You can live or work anywhere in America, but your investment dollars or remittances go to support businesses, non profit organizations and your family in the 8 State Southern Region).
However, any persons regardless of race, religion, creed or sexual orientation can live in the 8 State Southern Region, the Equal Protection Clause, part of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitutions, which took effect in 1868, provides that no State shall deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the law.
Meaning the 8 State Southern Region cannot deny to any person the right to live, work or do business in the Region, equally the other 42 States cannot deny Blacks, Asians or Hispanics rights to live, work and do business in their States.
Even if we rewrite the Constitution of those States, we cannot state, African Americans shall rule the 8 State Southern Region perpetually or continuously, that is unconstitutional.
If Many years past, Black American population declines, and millions of Indians with their high birth rate and high immigration rate become the dominate population in North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee, they would probably have Political, Economic and Government Powers of those States.
Balkanization Of America It has already been written by scholars, futurist, right wing supremacist groups, conservative radio talk show hosts, visionaries and others, that in 2050 the white population will become 46% of the USA population.
This may cause a Balkanization of America, which different races may prefer or seek to live among their own group. For example, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Southern California, Nevada, Colorado, will become The Nation of Atzlan ruled by the Mexicans.
(The Asians may have overwhelming influence on Northern California, Oregon and the State of Washington).
2/3 of South Florida would be dominated by the Cubans, Dominicans, Puerto Ricans, Colombians.
(The 8 State Southern Region North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee and possibly 1/3 one-third of northern Florida will be ruled by the African Americans).
The Jews will take over New York City metro region.
(Whites will have the northern rockies States, the northern plains States, mid west States and north east States).
The Mormons will keep Utah.
(Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania will become your multicultural, mix marriage and multiracial region).
This grouping could very well be initiated by the Whites for fear of being dominated by the other racial groups. Meaning the Whites could call for a dominate White Homeland in the North States. Waiting for demographics changes is not a plan. We have to be united, organize and plan, therefore when the opportunity present itself we will be prepared.
For the first time in American history, Black Americans have the chance to choose their course of direction. We have to take the initiative instead of responding to other groups wishes and goals.
Incentives for African Americans to migrate to the 8 State Southern Region.
1) Reparation Laws pass by the 8 Southern States Legislatures, signed by the 8 Governors and supported by the 8 States Supreme Courts will give the 8 States the legal capacity or authority to right the wrong of 400 years of political, social and economic injustice.
2) Land Reform, African American Homeland citizens are given the opportunity to acquire raw land, Farm land, Ranches, commercial land, residential land and other properties. The State will take control or ownership of land considered vital Forest land or Public land with just compensation.
3)Control of State and Local Budgets; The 8 State combined budget is over 300 billion dollars
4) Large, medium and small business opportunities. 80% to 85% of all State and Local contracts go to Black American Professionals and Black owned Corporations and Businesses.
5) Control of the 8 States Executive and Legislature Systems
6) Control of the 8 States Supreme Court, State Court, County Court and Local Court Systems
7) 20% of all Jobs in the African American Homeland are Public service jobs.
8) Tens of thousands of Elected and Appointed position opportunities
9) Control of the State and Local Police department Systems
10) Control of the 8 State Public School, State Universities and Community College Systems
11)Black American Professionals and Businesses will be favored by State Law or Policies
12) One trillion dollar Southern Stock Exchanged headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. For Black American Corporations to raised money to buy up white owned corporate asset inside the 8 State Southern Region.
13) Most non violent criminals and records and certain violent criminals and records under special circumstances Pardon and Expunged. All ex-felons who have served their time can vote.
14) 2 Parent families will have first priority for Jobs, Housing, Farm Land, small business loans, insurance, healthcare and others. This initiative is to increase the marriage rate and drastically reduce the number of single mothers, therefore decreasing poverty.
15) Formation of Regional, State and Local Banks with over 2.5 trillion dollars in total assets, compare to 21 Black owned Banks with 5 billion dollars in asset.
Disunity in the Black Community; There is distrust, disagreements, different opinions and many choices in the Black American Community, however there is no deep rooted divisions in the Black American Community like in Nigeria where there are hundreds of languages, many different tribes, different religions, cultures and Nigeria had experienced Civil War. Despite that, no matter how difficult, Nigerians try to cooperate together as one nation. Black Americans never declare war on each other. Therefore, with leadership and a plan we African Americans can easily overcome our differences and cooperate together.
We Have Partners And Allies Across The World; African Americans have partners and allies across the world that want to build Trade, Economic, Cultural, Educational, Professional, Business, Technology Transfer and Tourism relations with us. Countries that want to build a relation includes China, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, Philippines, India, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, South Africa, Nigeria, Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, Mexico and others. However these nations don’t know how to communicate with us or are hesitant to interact with us, because we don’t have a central African American government authority to form a relation with. These nations want a relationship with a State government or Regional government apparatus which has full support from it’s citizens and Institutions, that can implement policies and programs that can get results. An African American regional government organization can give nations an alternative to the USA federal government. Good example, the United States government is giving support to a regional organization or ethnic group called the Kurds in Iraq to fight ISIS, instead of dealing with the central Iraqi government. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, NAACP, Urban League are non government organizations (NGO), They cannot make laws or have control of State or Regional government systems to implement a program or policies. The Economic Community of Eight Southern States, aka 8 State Southern Region or African American Homeland, is the regional Institution that can lead Black Americans to a prosperous future.
Our main objectives are the Acquisition of Political, Economic and Government powers of the 8 State Southern Region.
The First Wave To take control of the Economics and Politics of the 8 Southern States, every County large or small, every small Town, every community, every neighborhood, doesn’t matter how rich, middle class or poor must feel the presence of the African American mass migration.
There should be absolutely, no White Oasis, there should be no preservation of all White towns, communities or neighborhoods, no predominately public or private white schools, no where in the 8 State Southern Region.
If all the African Americans are migrating to one part of the State or one half of the State then the whites will just move to the part of the State where there are no or less Black Americans. Our Goal is to encourage the Whites to move out of the 8 state region.
The first massive migration wave have to be done as clandestinely or quietly as possible to arouse little suspicion from the Republican or Democratic Party.
We don’t need major media, however if major media does report this, the magnitude of the plan, most will find impossible to implement. The Tea Party a grass root organization, came out of no where in 2010 mid term elections.
The first migration wave of African American are eligible voters, recruited from all over the country whom want to live permanently in their new chosen county.
Every County will be targeted except counties with more than 60% Black population. Counties with 70% or more black population, some black citizens are encourage to migrate to adjacent counties with much lower black population.
The idea is to spread the vote, not concentrate the vote into a single voting district. Our goal is to have at a minimum, 10% more Black voters for every White voters in every County in the 8 State Southern Region.
True there are White Democratic voters but to be on the conservative side, I’m treating every White voter as a Republican. There are 688 Counties and Parishes (Louisiana) among the 8 Southern States.
With Georgia having 159 Counties. A County is a local level of government smaller than a state and usually larger than a city of town.
One Community Organizer is responsible for 100 voters in every County and Parish. Community Organizers are responsible for the coordination of African American Migrant voters in each County or voting districts.
Therefore, 5,000,000 voters the Organization will have the service of 50,000 Community Organizers. This is truly grass root. Above the Community Organizers are mid level managers with their responsibilities and upper level management with their core responsibilities.
Looking For Strong Leadership The Organizational Headquarters are based in New York City, Washington D.C and Atlanta, Georgia. Regional Command Centers are based in Houston, Dallas St. louis, Chicago, Louisville, Detroit, Baltimore, Richmond, Tampa, Jacksonville, Florida. States with significant black population will have State offices, that in turn are divided into District offices and at the lowest level are thousands of Branches (Home offices) through out the country.
Separate from the command structure, each 8 State will have their own Central Tactical Office, which deal with intelligence, security, State laws, election tactics, verifying the number of voters, dealing with state election officials and others.
In the order of important, the Governorship seat is the most important because of his powers to nominate, depending on the State a few hundred to over 1,000 appointed Officials to varies offices and positions, to be consider by the State Legislature.
The United States Senate Seat, there are 2 Senate seats in every State regardless of population, that serve a 6 year term, the State as a whole vote for the Senator.
The United State Congress Seat, the members of the House of Congress or Representative serve a two year term representing a people of a district. Congressional districts are apportioned in state by population.
The State Senate seat is the upper house of the state General Assembly. The State Senate is elected from single member districts for 2 year terms. Election are held every even numbered year.
The State House Assembly seat is the lower house of state General Assembly. The State House representative is elected from single member districts smaller than the State Senate district for 2 year terms.
Elections are held every even numbered year. There’s a saying, who ever control the State Legislature, controls the State Redistricting Process.
The Lieutenant Governor seat serves a 4 year term, the Lieutenant Governor is the first in line to ascend to the Governorship upon the death or resignation of the Governor.
