1. Designating citizens using categories such as “White” or “Black” is not valid.
(a) The words “White” or “Black” are nonspecific and vaguely stereotypical having nothing to do with factual ancestry.
(b) There is no scientific or geological definition associated with the words.
2. Designating citizens based on skin pigmentation for special considerations is not valid.
(a) Skin pigmentation is no indication of ancestry or geological origin.
(b) No specific degree of skin pigmentation has been established to indicate unadulterated ancestral relationships.
3. Designating citizens based on a category of “Race” is not valid.
(a) The validity of different races between humans has been scientifically challenged.
(b) Citizens today have mixed ancestry. No factual verifiable linage can be established.
4. Designating citizens based of self-declaration of ancestry is not valid.
(a) Providing special considerations based on ancestral claims is unreliable.
(b) Allowing special considerations based on self-declarations must be verified to be valid.
5. Designating people based on assumptions of pure genealogy is not valid.
(a) The majority of American citizens are mixed genealogy based on DNA testing.
(b) A DNA test can only determine genealogy of geographical origin and variations of geological origin.
6. Designating citizens as having slave ancestry is not valid without verification.
(a) Many Africans during times of slavery were free and some slave owners. Being of African descent does not indicate ancestral slavery.
(b) The first official slave owner in early America was African. Slavery was established in Africa well before settlements in the American colonies. To assume that a African did not participate in slave ownership in the past is unreliable.
7. It is Unconstitutional to provide exclusive rights to one individual citizen not provided to other individual citizens based on perceived racial differences.
(a) The Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution prohibits such discrimination between individual citizens.
(b) The Amendments states: “Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
