Dependency or Sovereignty: Where Do We Go From Here?Ě The purpose is not to launch a sovereign movement for Black independence, but rather to promote awareness of what sovereignty is all about.

Sovereignty is the pinnacle of all political ideals. Sovereignty is the highest level of accountability and responsibility of a people. Sovereignty concerns Supreme Power and Absoluteness. 1) The Supreme Power of a government to control all people, activities, territory and resources within its borders. 2) The Absolute right of a people to govern themselves without foreign influence or interferences. Sovereignty incubates as a consciousness and a philosophy that forms the basis of a peoples political and ideological Self-Identity.

You will never take over AMERICA Obviously, neither Black people nor any other minority group has Supreme Power or Absoluteness over Americas government or body politic. All minorities are under the sovereign jurisdiction of Euro-Americans They defied the British to establish this country. They defined Americas political doctrine. They wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. They control all major government institutions and the highest political posts of power. They determine allies and enemies. They declare war and decide terms of peace. So to try to take over america and turn it into a black nation / black sovereign nation is out of the question .

With all this in mind it is little wonder why the word Sovereignty is not part of Black America active political vocabulary, like the word Integration.This is no accident because freedom for us has been limited to Civil Rights, Integration, and Citizenship,whereas Euro-Americans on the other hand possess Sovereignty, Independence, and Statehood.With the supremacy of Sovereignty, Independence, and Statehood comes absolute federal authority to either legislate or repeal Civil Rights, Integration, or Citizenship.

Yes, Black America is free within the context that freedom is offered in America. But by no means are we a úsovereign people.Any perceived sense of sovereignty we may have is simulated through our association with Euro-Americans. However, association should not be confused with sovereignty People are either sovereign, or they are not. To occupy a psychological middle-ground like Black America constitutes the absence of sovereignty.

Black America has oddly become well-adjusted to living under a government that we do not control. The fact that we never wrote a Declaration of Independence or a Constitution, or established a government is insignificant to the rank and file of mainstream Black leadership. The thought of exploring sovereignty presents them with a psychological conflict of interest that akin to political blasphemy.

Not that we haven't tried look at an odd mix of "sovereign citizen" and black separatist ideologies, a Memphis man(MAYBE THIS IS HARRY ) was arrested in March for trying to acquire 11 properties without paying for them. Michael Cobbs, 34, filed pseudo-legal "deeds" on homes and a motel in Shelby County, Tenn., that he claimed made him owner of the properties.
The alleged scheme derives from ideas of the so-called sovereign citizens movement, whose members generally believe they are immune from the laws and taxes of state and federal governments. A recent twist on their methods has been seizing foreclosed homes with phony documents. In 2008, for instance, a group called the Sovereign Solomon Brothers Archbishop Sole filed dozens of fake deeds on pricey foreclosed homes in California, then rented them out while claiming "sovereign immunity" from the law.
the Nation of Yahweh sect, wore a turban and flowing white robes and claimed to be the reincarnated Messiah. He began numerous business enterprises in poor neighborhoods that amassed a fortune of as much as $100 million. Although he was initially welcomed with open arms by gullible Miami civic leaders, he and more than a dozen followers ultimately were indicted on federal racketeering and extortion charges related to the murder of 14 people, several of them whites whose ears were brought back to Yahweh ben Yahweh as trophies. He was convicted in 1992 of conspiracy to commit murder and sentenced to 18 years in prison. He was released on parole in 2001 and died in 2007.

Since our lives are attached to America in every way, it understandable that Blacks would be cautious about ideals that could be perceived as radical. But just for the sake of curiosity, suppose for a moment that a segment of Black America did decide to explore the feasibility of sovereignty. First of all, mainstream society would view this pursuit to be equally contentious as ridiculous. But when you objectively think about it, our troubled history and unresolved sociopolitical issues support a legitimate case for self-rule. And in terms of capabilities, we certainly do not lack the requisite intellectual, technical, or financial resources to be a sovereign people. We have more than ample human potential to establish a new and relevant presence in the world, with a political and ideological self-identity of our own If we ever decided to do so!

Are we so Americanized until black america will never have its own sovereign nation and we look to our ancestors,, AFRICA as our sovereign nation even tho it is under the invasion of white rule ?

The closest thing to a sovereign nation in america is the INDIANS ! HUMMM????
