Dear Mr. President:
Re: Reparations for the Descendants of the Triangular/African
Slave Trade and the LawKeepers’ Relocation to Jordan
We have so many, many aspirations to make something of our lives, to provide our children with better educations, communities, and lifestyles, and above all to return to Our GOD to Serve and Worship HIM according to the Laws HE gave to HIS Prophet Moses. We also want to be relocated to a friendly country that does not tolerate race hatred – and in the case of The LawKeepers, Jordan. All of our desires are to lead better lives for our children and ourselves, and thus our reasons for seeking Reparations. We so desperately want to be rid of the oppression, abuse, affliction, and degradation that prevails in our present environments that have been established for us by the powers-that-be. No one knows better than we do regarding how best to meet “our” needs. And we await an audience with you or any one of your aides to discuss these much needed and long awaited Reparations.
Without a doubt, Mr. President, you have afforded the White Jews this opportunity by using your Administration to “Start A War Reparation Fund:”
“The U.S. Chamber of Commerce will solicit donations from U.S. corporations to compensate slave laborers and others who were forced to work in German factories owned by American companies or their subsidiaries during World War II.
“If we can assist member companies in resolving a humanitarian situation, while at the same time preventing trial lawyers from getting their hands on the money, we would like to help,'' Chamber spokesman Frank Coleman said.
“The fund would be led by Craig Johnstone, who is a senior vice president of the chamber, a former ambassador to Algeria under President Ronald Reagan and a former director of the State Department's office of policy and plans under Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
“American companies are looking for a way to do the greatest amount of good for real victims,'' Johnstone said.
“In December, U.S. and German negotiators, at the behest of President Clinton and German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, announced a deal to establish a $5.2 billion German fund to compensate hundreds of thousands of people forced to work for the Nazis and German companies during the war.
“U.S. officials estimate about 100,000 victims are Americans.
“New York attorney Melvyn Weiss, who represents some victims, said Saturday that good-faith contributions to the fund might help avert a class-action lawsuit against at least 50 and perhaps as many as 200 U.S. companies, including Kodak and Exxon-Mobil.
“There's no fund big enough that could satisfy survivors in the absolute terms, but I think it's important to get a significantly meaningful contribution so that they will have some financial assistance in their later years, will feel better about getting the truth out, and get a certain amount of recompense,'' Weiss said.”

We have appealed to you for over two years for Reparations for the Survivors of the Triangular/African Slave Trade, and you never once responded to our requests. But yet, you assist another group – a White Privileged Group - with kindness and compassion for the atrocities they endured at the hands of American companies, and you totally and heartlessly disregard the degradation, discrimination, oppression, and humiliation that we continue to experience as a result of being descendants of Slaves. We have lost our identity through total “ethnic cleansing” at the hands of cruel and merciless nations that deem themselves “civilized.” Therefore, are we not the “real victims” of gross Human Rights’ violations, Mr. President?
Colonial establishments and U.S. companies and their subsidiaries were involved in the Triangular/African Slave Trade. Southern and northern states benefited socially and economically from this Slave labor. Since taking office as President of the United States, where is even your slightest effort to approach U.S. Congressmen and Senators to consider Reparations for the Survivors of the Slave Trade for the free labor of millions of our forebears for hundreds of years? Where is even your slightest desire to apology for this scandalous and wicked crime against the enslaved?
Mr. President, from the above information, you are guilty of the very same discrimination against Blacks and favoritism for the privileged that you denounced at your State of the Union Address and that sustain the despair African Americans face in the United States and the World. You so willingly and enthusiastically assist the White Jews to receive compensation for their European Holocaust, but you totally disregard the heinous, barbaric, and merciless Black Holocaust that has lasted since Slaves were stolen from the African continent and taken to the shores of the Western Hemisphere and to other White nations unto this present day.
We have never been offered the opportunity to leave the lands we were forced to inhabit. Our captors are guilty of “forced migration,” a crime so evil that it is a “Human Rights Violation,” though Human Rights Activists don’t consider Blacks to be victims. And although UNESCO, in its 1978 estimate, states that as many as 210 million Black Africans died while Slavers attempted to get chained men, women, and children to the shores of White societies for enslavement, their public statement generated no sympathy or concern for Reparations due descendants of these Black Peoples.
However, your concern and kindness is for a people who are already compensated (above and beyond their needs) with Reparations to the tune of $ 70 billion from Germany and more billions of U.S. tax dollars going to Israel every single year specifically to provide for them a most comfortable and admirable pursuit of happiness at the expense of Americans including the descendants of Black Slaves who are an already deprived and dispossessed people. Unreal!
Our tax dollars have built quality housing and communities in Israel for European Jews and many Russians who, by the way, aren’t even Jews. Never have Blacks seen the likes of the “WELFARE” that the United States so graciously provides the many peoples of Israel. But rather, Blacks are horded into government projects and ghettoes designed to encourage and advance our failure and cause the deterioration of our youth and manifest lost souls destined for perpetual poverty and bad elements as exist in every Black urban neighborhood in America. The design and purpose of the ghetto has never failed the powers-that-be. This type of environment, so very different from the Jewish settlements, is deliberately calculated to maintain illiteracy and unsuccessful Blacks with no chance for prosperity and progress. The White, European Jews were not treated with such degrading provisions and management. They have received only the best of funding and assistance for whatever their needs or requests, even for a Jewish museum (IN THE UNITED STATES) for remembrance of their Holocaust that costs tax payers a whopping million dollars to maintain annually while the government does nothing in remembrance of the Black Holocaust nor does it make mention that Black Slaves built the White House.
You are on record for saying that you don’t know why Blacks support you. For what you have done for Blacks in your two terms in office, I think many, Blacks, now, as well as some honest Whites, will agree with your insensitive statement.
However, Mr. President, I want you to live to know that the True and Living GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob yet exists. I want you to live, Mr. President, to know and understand that HIS Chosen People have appealed to you for Reparations to Serve and Worship HIM in Jordan or other friendly, unprejudiced country. I want you to live, Mr. President, to realize that many of the Blacks who were enslaved in your country were Hebrew Israelites, and that we, LawKeepers, are their descendants. I want you to live, Mr. President to know that we are only descendants of Slaves because we sinned against Our GOD and rejected HIM for false deities. And finally, I want you to live, Mr. President, to know and understand that Our GOD is a Merciful GOD and yet loves us and is in the process of making the World know and realize that HE is still indeed Our GOD, that there is none else besides HIM, and that none of HIS Compassion for HIS People has changed!
“I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden.
“Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.
”At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the Lord.”
Zephaniah 3:18 - 20
Then, Mr. President, we will have good reason to support the ONE that matters - Our GOD, the Most High GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. And this time, you can be sure; we will appreciate HIM for HIS Manifold Mercies and for delivering us out of the degradation and indignities we endure in the lands of our captors. Make no mistakes about it; we have good reason to support “HIM.” Our GOD, Praise HIS Holy Name, has been waiting for us to return to HIM all these years, and for that reason, it is to HIM that we, LawKeepers, are most grateful. And our support will always be of HIM and HIS Law.
Our captors in White societies have done worse by us than the Ancient Egyptians. I still cry, sometimes hysterically, at the evil and heartless beatings, death, maiming, and cruel treatment of my forefathers at the hands of their White Slave Masters. I cry for the mothers who watched helplessly and frantically as their babies were forced from their arms to be sold, only GOD knows, to what kind of person who could take a begging mother’s child. I cry for the many husbands whose wives were taken from them and raped by the White Masters, and they could do nothing about it but howl and moan from the bitter agony and hopelessness in losing a loved one. I cry for the many wives whose husbands were sold to other plantations never to be seen again. I cry for the children who forever lost their mothers and their fathers to the sale of human beings as lots were cast for GOD’s People. I cry for the many, many Blacks who were lynched and so violently castrated, drowned in US. rivers, and hanged from trees. I cry even now, as I type this letter, Mr. President. I know that to many Whites, today, we are still considered “chattel” and considered to not have feelings. They could care less about how Slaves were maltreated, molested, corrupted and physically and mentally abused or even how Blacks, today, are murdered at the hands of police and White Supremacists and how my people are thrown into jail on falsified charges and for crimes they did not commit.
We have paid double for our great Sins against Our GOD, and now, we would be most grateful if we were compensated for all that we have done to make these United States the economic and powerful giant it is in this World. We also want restitution for all our pain and suffering unknown to any single group but the Blacks in this World who can only understand and realize oppression and affliction of this magnitude.
Only the truly kindhearted and compassionate human beings can fathom what Survivors of this horrendous Slave Trade have undergone and tolerated under government-instituted laws that promote discrimination, separation, oppression, and affliction – even since the abolition of Slavery.
Our GOD is not happy, and HE is on a campaign to “punish the World for their evil,” as you can plainly see. The adverse weather conditions are not at all about so-called Mother Nature or changing weather patterns, per se. All this death and destruction has to do with the All-Mighty GOD calling remembrance to HIMSELF and making known HIS Great ACTS among the present rulers of this World, just as HE did down in Egypt before the Children of Israel made their Exodus from that land of bondage.
“For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,
“I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom thy have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.” Joel 3:1,2
Mr. President, give our forefathers an opportunity to rest in peace, and let us resolve this Reparations matter, so that we can move on and leave misery and suffering behind us, as no one – not even White Folks – will enjoy peace and serenity as long as unjust and racist acts prevail and harm the people of color who live in your midst.
Again, we would like to meet with you to discuss this very important matter.
