A. Voting Rights Act (VRA)

Return to top of page

This year we are addressing the renewal of our Voting Rights Act (VRA). If all of the citizen's in America are equal. Then why should our Voting Rights Act have to be renewed every 25 years?

Congress enacted major amendments to the Voting Rights Act of 1965 in 1970, 1975, 1982, 1992, and 2006. Each of these amendments coincided with an impending expiration of some of the Act's special provisions, which originally were set to expire by 1970.

The Fifteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution

This amendment prohibits the federal and state governments from denying a citizen the right to vote based on that citizen's "race, color, or previous condition of servitude". It was ratified on February 3, 1870, as the third and last of the Reconstruction Amendments.

VRA Overview....

From 1865 to 1965 discrimination was unchecked. There was a lot of violence at the polls with literacy test, poll tax and other voter qualifications laws had became a common act in many states.

In 1965 Congress enacted major amendments to the Voting Rights Act which they call the basic provisions of the Fifteenth Amendment.

Congress extended the coverage formula and special provisions tied to it, such as the Section 5 preclearance requirement, for five years in 1970, seven years in 1975, and 25 years in both 1982 and 2006. The history shows that it is a on going battle for the Voting Rights Act. Which includes as a special provision for minorities that includes women of all races the right of being treated equal in property-ownership requirements and the right of being treated equal in any court of law, at is in our nation.


B. Social Security Reform

Return to top of page

There are members of Congress who have said that Social Security is WELFARE. In reality it is a PENSION. Honest hard working citizens paid out of every pay check into Social Security. This went on throughout a person's work history with our government collecting interest every month off of the payments. For many citizens Social Security is their only livelihood. Many people who are drawing Social Security really do not get enough money to make it trough the month. So they must work in order to pay the bills.

Return to top of page

The Three-Fifths Human Compromise is found in Article 1, Section 2, Clause 3 of the United States Constitution. The Confederation Congress three-fifths ratio originated with an amendment proposed to the Articles of Confederation on April 18, 1783. The amendment was to have changed the basis for determining the wealth of each state, and hence its tax obligations, from real estate to population, as a measure of ability to produce wealth.

D. First National Boycott

Return to top of page

Everyone should have an equal chance at employment and we do not. A lot of large businesses chains that serve the public, practices hiring only one ethnic group. If there is a person of a different race working there, that person is a token.

We are not targeting "Mom and Pop" family run businesses. We are mainly referring to fast food companies, restaurants, grocery stores and clothing stores.

This discrimination is prevalent in many cities across the U.S. It takes jobs away from other races who have families and are in need of employment. This takes away jobs for other races who have families and need employment, as well as jobs for students or people trying to get out of the fast life. We need to see at least 50% of employees of mixed races in all work areas.

We are looking for volunteers to expose this type of hiring. In your daily rutine look for any blatant ethnic discrimination. If seen, please voice your concerns to the management and tell them, " if changes are not made then you will  boycott the business. By expressing the need of change through friends, facebook, twitter, etc. " Please do not buy anything from that store. When boycotting an establishment, please inform this web site so we can print further support.

For example: I can find within a two-mile radius of my home, more than 5 businesses that has employees that are the same race.


If I go to the rich areas I know that I will be able to find the same in the strip mall business as well.
