Racial Discrimination and Putting “Murder By Judicial System” On A Par With “Murder By Gun”

NB: Sec.

Dear John,

After reading your proposed Reading Liberally - Salt Lake action (Sec. C of the Suggested Discussion Outline) of sending letters to President Biden and to the Chair and ranking minority member of the Senate and House Judiciary Committees requesting an amendment of the Federal “Hate Crimes” Law (Title I of the Civil Rights Act of 1968) to provide criminal penalties for a willful failure to provide defendants with exculpatory evidence as required by the U.S. Supreme Court in Brady vs. Maryland (373 U.S. 83 (1963)) equal to the criminal penalty to which the defendant was exposed by the violation of the U.S. Supreme Court’s requirement --

I suspect that though desperately needed, you believe such an amendment would be a far cry from ending racial discrimination in America.

Could you please provide additional context?

Your friend,

Solutions

Dear Solutions,

Yes, your suspicion is accurate that although desperately needed, such an amendment would be a far cry from ending racial discrimination in America.

Preliminary Observation

The U.S. Supreme Court is famous for its decisions vacating criminal convictions for a failure to provide exculpatory evidence, a failure to advise the defendant of the right to counsel, etc., etc.

But vacating criminal convictions is all the U.S. Supreme Court is able to do.

It cannot legislate criminal penalties for miscreants who willfully refuse to follow Supreme Court requirements.

So we are faced with a classic “Catch 22”!!!

Miscreants can misbehave with impunity!!!

And can “stone wall” defendants!!!

But if each miscreant is exposed to criminal penalties for a willful refusal to follow Supreme Court requirements, s/he is forced to “think twice” about whether anyone else might “blow the whistle” to avoid becoming an “accessory after the fact”!!!

Racial Discrimination and the “War on Drugs”

As we have studied many times (e.g., most recently our 6/21/2020 meeting on “The Age of Addiction: How Bad Habits Become Big Business” by Prof. David Courtwright) --

(1) The 1986 Anti-Drug Abuse Act called for a 100:1 sentencing disparity for powder cocaine which is used by affluent users vs. crack cocaine which is used by the poor, and

(2) The 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, for example, funded 100,000 new police officers, provided $9.7 billion for new prisons, and even stooped to denying Pell Grants (for taking college courses) for prisoners, etc., etc. -- BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, in its Sec. 70001, provided a notorious “three strikes and you’re out” requirement of a MANDATORY LIFE SENTENCE for the third violent felony (“physical force” is the hallmark of drug dealers) – which resulted in mass incarcerations of poor Blacks (NB: it is estimated that 80% of all federal prisoners were convicted of drug charges).

Perhaps we should also include in our proposed letters to President Biden, et al., the elimination of these discriminatory provisions.

The Need To Educate America’s “Permanent 30% ‘Untouchable’ Under-Caste”

This was reiterated in the Second Short Quiz --

(1) As we have studied many times, America has created a “Permanent ‘Untouchable’ Under-Caste” occupying its inner-city ghettos and, according to the federal government, for the last half-century the “Permanent ‘Untouchable’ Under-Caste” has comprised 30% of the total population and it is illiterate as defined by the ability to read the warning label on a can of rat poison.

(2) Studies regularly show that America as “the land of opportunity” is a myth -- that the American population’s upward mobility is actually far less than notoriously non-upwardly-mobile countries such as the United Kingdom.

(3) No surprise!!! After all, children in America’s inner-city ghettos realize at a young age that their only realistic career objectives are pimp or pusher, or girl-friend of a pimp/pusher graduating to whore and, as a result, drop out because little education is needed for such occupations.

(4) HOWEVER, the 178 “I Have A Dream”® Programs in 51 American cities during the 1990’s which provided a tutor and mentor for every child in an entire grade of an inner-city school (no exceptions) or a housing-project grade cohort (no exceptions) from third grade thru H.S. graduation with a guarantee of college tuition -- routinely transformed the SINGLE-DIGIT H.S. GRADUATION RATE for the class just ahead and just behind the “Dreamer” Class to more than 90%.

(5) The 90% HS rates (vs. SINGLE DIGIT) for the IHAD programs were in fact due to the tutors/mentors becoming de facto “surrogate” parents proving that the INNOCENT CHILDREN born to the “Permanent 30% ‘Untouchable’ Under-Caste” can be saved.

(6) In other words, even though 95% of total “Dreamer” households were headed by single adults who were drug addicts and 75% - 80% of total “Dreamer” households were headed by a single-adult druggie who turned over any receipts to the pusher so the kids had to steal just in order to eat, we (Yours Truly headed one of the 178 programs and was the volunteer national treasurer) rarely encountered a “Dreamer” parent who did NOT want the best for her/his children despite an inability to provide it -- and such care was easily provided by IHAD programs.

So yes, IMHO talk about “reparations” for African-Americans is irresponsible because it will NOT transform America’s “Permanent 30% ‘Untouchable’ Under-Caste” by providing a decent education for the INNOCENT children born to the “Permanent 30% ‘Untouchable’ Under-Caste.”

AND also IMHO, even though “America’s Apartheid ‘Justice’ System” prevented Yours Truly from collecting from 15 of the world’s largest financial institutions the $84 billion that they owed me and that had long-since been pledged in legally-binding fashion to provide “I Have A Dream”® or IHAD-style programs for 10 million inner-city children, America is MORALLY BANKRUPT if its federal government does not now provide a similar program to WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN PROVIDED BEGINNING A DECADE AGO WITH PRIVATE FINANCING.
