Transcript of Dismantle Race
Proponents of slavery in particular during the 19th century used "race" to justify the retention of slavery.
The ideology magnified the differences among Europeans, Africans, and Indians, established a rigid hierarchy of socially exclusive categories underscored
and bolstered unequal rank and status differences
, and provided the rationalization that the inequality was natural or God-given. The different physical traits of African-Americans and Indians became markers or symbols of their

US society, leaders among European-Americans fabricated the cultural/behavioral characteristics associated with each "race," linking superior traits with Europeans and negative and inferior ones to blacks and Indians. Numerous arbitrary and fictitious beliefs about the different peoples were
and deeply embedded in American thought.

These are not identities.
Ultimately "race" as an ideology about human differences was subsequently spread to
other areas of the world
. It became a strategy for
colonized people used by colonial powers everywhere.
"Race" thus evolved as a worldview, a body of prejudgments that distorts our ideas about human differences and group behavior. Racial beliefs constitute myths about the diversity in the human species and about the abilities and behavior of people homogenized into "racial" categories. The myths fused behavior and physical features together in the public mind, impeding our comprehension of both biological variations and cultural behavior, implying that both are genetically determined. Racial myths bear no relationship to the reality of human capabilities or behavior. Scientists today find that reliance on such folk beliefs about human differences in research has led to countless errors.
Black has No Standing At Law
American Anthropological Association
Statement on Race
For more than 20 years, the current standards in OMB's Statistical Policy Directive No. 15 have provided a common language to promote uniformity and comparability for data on race and ethnicity for the population groups specified in the Directive. They were developed in cooperation with Federal agencies to provide consistent data on race and ethnicity throughout the Federal Government.
Development of the data standards stemmed in large measure from new responsibilities to enforce civil rights laws. Data were needed to monitor equal access in housing, education, employment, and other areas, for populations that historically had experienced discrimination and differential treatment because of their race or ethnicity
. The standards are used not only in the decennial census (which provides the data for the "denominator" for many measures), but also in household surveys, on administrative forms (e.g., school registration and
mortgage lending applications
), and in medical and other research.
The categories represent a social-political construct designed for collecting data on the race and ethnicity of broad population groups in this country, and are not anthropologically or scientifically based.
Revisions to the Standards for the Classification of Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity
How people have been accepted and treated within the context of a given society or culture has a direct impact on how they perform in that society. The "racial" worldview was invented to assign some groups to
perpetual low status,
while others were permitted access to
privilege, power, and wealth
. The tragedy in the United States has been that the
and practices stemming from this worldview succeeded all too well in constructing unequal populations among Europeans, Native Americans, and peoples of African descent. Given what we know about the capacity of normal humans to achieve and function within any culture, we conclude that present-day inequalities between so-called "racial" groups are not consequences of their biological inheritance but products of
historical and contemporary social, economic, educational, and political circumstances.
The racial and ethnic categories set forth in the standards should not be interpreted as being primarily
in reference. Race and ethnicity may be thought of in terms of
and cultural characteristics as well as ancestry.

White by Law
by Ian Lopez Hanley
How the system creates the privilege
In its first words on the subject of citizenship, Congress in 1790 restricted naturalization to "white persons." Though the requirements for naturalization changed frequently thereafter, this racial prerequisite to citizenship endured for over a century and a half, remaining in force until 1952. From the earliest years of this country until just a generation ago, being a "white person" was a condition for acquiring citizenship.
It is no accident that the first legal ban on interracial marriage, a 1705 Virginia act, also constituted the first statutory
to define who was
Regulating or criminalizing behavior in racial terms required legal definitions of race. Thus, in the years leading up to Brown, most states that made racial distinctions in their laws provided
statutory racial definitions
, almost always focusing on the boundaries of Black identity. Alabama and Arkansas defined anyone with one drop of "Negro" blood as Black; Florida had a one-eighth rule; Georgia referred to "ascertainable" non-White blood;
, then, constructs racial differences on several levels through the promulgation and enforcement of rules that determine permissible behavior. The
governed who was and was not welcome to join the polity,
anti miscegenation laws
regulated sexual relations, and
told people where they could and could not live and work. Together, such
altered the physical appearances of this country's people, attached racial identities to certain types of features and ancestry,
and established material conditions of belonging and exclusion that code as race.
In all of these ways, legal rules constructed race.
Of course, law is not limited to direct, coercive, behavior controlling means in the construction of race. It also operates on the level of
Law does not exist as a separate phenomenon distinct from society and concerned only with policing disputes, but is an
of society and an essential component in the
social production of knowledge.
" It is in its capacity to shape and constrain how people think about the world more than in its coercive potential, most powerfully affect the construction of races.
"The power exerted by a legal regime consists less in the force that it can bring to bear against violators of its rules than in its capacity to persuade people that the world described in its images and categories is the only attainable world in which a sane person would want to live."
as a tool in Housing
Racial redlining is the practice whereby mortgage lenders figuratively draw a red line around minority neighborhoods and refuse to make mortgage loans available inside the red lined area. Broadly defined, racial redlining encompasses not only the direct refusal to lend in minority neighborhoods, but also procedures that discourage the submission of mortgage loan applications from minority areas, and marketing policies that exclude such areas.
Of the $120 billion in home loans underwritten by the federal government between 1933 and 1962, what percentage went to white homeowners?
A. 45 percent
B. 64 percent
C. 75 percent
D. 88 percent
E. 98 percent
Answer: E. 98 percent. Beginning in the 1930s and 1940s, the federal government created programs that subsidized low-cost home loans, opening up home ownership – and wealth accumulation– to millions of Americans for the first time. But government underwriters introduced a national appraisal system tying loan eligibility and property value to
, inventing "redlining," and effectively locking people of color out of home-buying just as white Americans were beginning to purchase homes and build net worth.
Which is NOT an example of a government racial preference program?
A. 1964 Civil Rights Act
B. 1862 Homestead Act
C. 1790 Naturalization Act
D. 1934 Federal Housing Administration
E. 1935 Social Security Act
Answer: A. 1964 Civil Rights Act. The Civil Rights Act made racial discrimination in public places illegal. The other programs are all examples of racial preferences - for
people. Over a
the Homestead Act gave away, for free,
270 million acres of land,
formerly Indian Territory, almost all of it to white people. The Naturalization Act allowed only
“free white persons”
to adopt citizenship, thus opening voting rights and property ownership to European immigrants but barring Asians and other groups. Racial barriers to citizenship were not removed until 1952.
The Federal Housing Administration
made it possible for millions of
average white Americans
– but not others – to own a home for the first time. (see #11 above). And the Social Security Act specifically exempted two occupations from coverage: farm-workers and domestics, both largely non-white.
Which of the following is NOT a result of federal government policies?
B. Urban renewal
C. Deterioration of inner cities
D. Affirmative action quotas
E. The wealth gap between black and white families
Answer: D. Affirmative action quotas. Federal affirmative action guidelines specifically prohibit quotas. Beginning in the 1930, the
Federal Housing Administration
and related programs made it possible for millions of average white Americans to own a home for the first time and set off the post-WWII suburban building boom. The government established a national neighborhood appraisal system, explicitly tying mortgage eligibility to race, a policy known today as “redlining.” The
other government policies made possible the post-World War II
suburbs, while people of color and in central cities were denied loans. Government policies and practices helped create two legacies that are still with us today: segregated communities and a substantial wealth gap between
whites and nonwhites,
much of which can be traced to the differential value of their homes and inheritance from past generations.
Now what, how can this info be helpful?
Now that we know how the system works, how the system disenfranchises the people who call themselves
, is there a remedy?
Race or Class is voluntary so voluntarily correct your status and
BECOME A CITIZEN LEGALLY!
No one is born Black or White! These statuses are completely contractual, meaning your
STATUS (your Standing at Law)
is a contractual voluntary position. In order for a caste system to work the people must believe that they are born into there caste
(perpetual low status - non citizenship).
Because race does not use any science, (anthropology, genetics, or biology) then it can be only a choice! So if this country is constructed to create White privilege what should the choice be?
1. Notice the top right corner of the SSA form. (Form Approved by OMB)
2. Notice the categories are the same minus the definitions!
3. This SS-5 form is the most important contract in the U.S.A. You are literally choosing your status-class-caste. (Race) Everywhere you use your SSN your status-class-caste will be represented!(Remember what Jesus said!)
4. Go to your local SSA office and correct your status-class-caste. (Race)
5. Tell them you are there to CORRECT your SS-5 form. When they ask you what would you like to correct, be clear and let them know you are changing your Race to white!

1. Members of a race can be identified by their:
A. Blood group
B. Skin color
E. All of the above
F. None of the above
Answer: F. None of the above. There are no traits, no characteristics, not even one gene that distinguishes all members of one so-called race from all members of another. The A, B, O blood groups can be found in all the world’s peoples. Skin color tends to correspond with latitude not race; sub-Saharan Africans, Dravidians and Tamils from Southern Asia, and Melanesians from the Pacific all have very dark skin. Ancestry is difficult to trace. Go back 30 generations, less than 1,000 years, and you have a billion ancestors.

DPS troopers are inaccurately recording the race of large numbers of minority drivers, mostly Hispanic, as white, according to a KXAN investigation. The agency’s traffic stop data reveals racial profiling reports are likely flawed, according to experts.
How much should we trust the statistics communicated by the legal system?
Texas Troopers Ticketing Hispanic Drivers as White
- Credit score goes up, loan eligibility increases, employment opportunities expand
- Communities, schools, businesses become white and thus first in line when it comes to Government financing.
- Because Race, as we now know it, started here in America. We would be the catalyst for deconstructing Race all over the globe!
4. Your Citizenship will be unquestioned because
have always been
in America. Your Humanity would be unquestioned because you would have chosen to be a an
and not a sub-human! (Slave)
1. If equality is the goal....doesn't that include sharing an identity or label? (Americans)
2. In order to reach our goal we (Blacks) must make sacrifices also and this includes abandoning a label
never chose for ourselves!
Equality is impossible through separate categories!
Categories are not necessary in an integrated society, your forefathers (ethnicity) may not have shared culture (language, religion, knowledge, customs) but we as Americans share culture now, we create American culture together!
4. You can only be what you do! If your forefathers were fisherman but you do not fish, then you are no fisherman!
5. Black History is Human History! If it was done by a human it is part of YOUR story! If humanity originated in Africa every human is an African.
Humanity is the African Diaspora!
