The United States Senate colonization vote

Posted By: Thomas Manning on December 02, 2022

The United States Senate Colonization Vote
When anyone reads the United States Constitution that great document upon which this nation was founded one ask to ask how did slavery remain a part of the nation? How did Black people become three-fifths of man as if it were possible?
This great document has stood and served this nation well despite being deeply flawed. Effort after effort has been made to correct flaws and right the wrongs. But this week is different for in our nation’s
Capitol the United States Senate will repeat the mistakes of the founding fathers with a colonization vote.
A colonization vote is a that excludes, or overlooks, the rights of Black people while granting additional rights to the majority.
The United States Senate, the house of great debate, is set to vote this week to codify gay marriage rights while not speaking a word, excluding, concerning codifying the voting rights of Black people. Thereby repeating the horror of the founding fathers.


How does this happen again? How does it happen with great leaders and liberal voices in the Senate like Berny Sanders and Elizabeth Warren? How does it happen with men and women who claim a faith that guides them in every decision? How does it happen with Senators of color, Corey Booker and Tim Scott, as a part of the United States Senate? Not to mention our Jewish brothers, gay sisters, women supporters (minority and majority), and minority brothers and sisters all in the United States Senate.
Evil compromise!
They will tell the nation that a great thing has happened this week. But what they will not tell us is that they left us behind. They will not tell you that by only voting to codify gay marriage rights they sent the voting rights of Black people to the back of the civil rights bus!
President Biden who promised voting rights would be a top priority has failed to deliver. President Biden will sign the gay marriage rights bill. He will tell us that “we are next”.
The liberal and conservative news media will both, and the presidential press secretary will tell us what a great day it is. They will be celebrating that same-sex marriage has been secured in the United States Constitution. The conservative religious community will say our rights of religious freedom from gay rights have been protected in the United States Constitution! So, everyone who mattered got what they wanted. The Black community did not get what we needed to ensure our right to vote.
It is an evil compromise that brings about colonial votes. We can never again look to this congress, Democrats, and Republicans, to address our needs. Congress is a broken institution.
So Black folks can marry whomever they choose we just cannot vote when, where, and, how we want to. So we are being told that is true freedom “the right to marry”.
