Court Decides Reparations Suit Against Democrats

Court Decides Reparations Suit Against Democrats By Frances Rice

The U.S. District Court in Seattle, Washington issued a historic ruling in the landmark Reparations lawsuit (Case No. CV04-2442) filed against the Democratic Party by Rev. Wayne Perryman, author of the book entitled Unfounded Loyalty: An In-depth look into the Love Affair Between Blacks and Democrats.

Reacting to the court's decision, Rev. Perryman, who will be the keynote speaker at the June 11, 2005 Empowerment Award Luncheon sponsored by the SaraMana Black Republican Club at the Sarasota Hyatt at 11:30 AM, thanked his supporters and said: "This case will become a permanent part of the United States Federal Judicial archives for years to come."

Rev. Perryman said that he filed the 180-page Reparations lawsuit for two primary reasons: (1) To obtain redress for the crimes committed against African Americans by the Democratic Party and (2) To officially file a formal case against the Democratic Party as a permanent historic record.

Under oath in court, the Democratic Party was forced to tell the truth about the party's racist past and the harm that party caused to African Americans. In a legal maneuver to escape paying Reparations and have the case dismissed, the Democrats convinced the judge that since Rev. Perryman himself had not been personally or directly harmed, he had no standing to file the lawsuit on behalf of all African Americans.

Rev. Perryman responded to the Democrats' legal maneuver by submitting another legal brief to the court. In that document, Rev. Perryman said that "contrary to what the Democrats want the court to believe, none of the country's leading legal experts, including the 200 plus law professors who received copies of the original brief, have cited one legal precedent to dismiss the case."

It is the only case of record, Rev. Perryman told the court, "where millions of people were brought to this country against their will, enslaved for over 200 years, and denied their constitutional rights by the legislative efforts of one political party, the Democratic Party."

Using historical documents, Rev. Perryman presented facts to the court showing that African Americans were beaten, murdered, tortured and terrorized by members of the Democratic Party from 1792 to 1962. "African Americans," Rev. Perryman said, "were never compensated for their suffering."

Rev. Perryman pointed out to the court that there are a number of cases that address redress, but none that address the impact that one political party, the Democratic Party, had on an entire race of people. "This case is very unique," Rev. Perryman said, "and should not be dismissed because of other unrelated cases."

The other cases cited by the Democrats, Rev. Perryman said, were either about finding the descendants of slaves to compensate them or finding corporations that profited from slavery. My case against the Democrats, Rev. Perryman told the court, "is about a powerful political party that promoted and practiced racism for 170 years (1792-1962) until it infected our entire nation and affected an entire race." The Democratic Party's racist practices, Rev. Perryman said, continue to affect African Americans today. Most of the acts committed by the Democrats against African Americans were initiated and committed at the state level under the Democratic Party's claims of States’ Rights based on the party's Jim Crow Laws and Black Codes.

Rev. Perryman requested that the court order the Democratic Party to apologize for their racist past and the harm the party caused to African Americans. He also requested funds to produce a series of educational films depicting the true relationship between blacks and the two political parties. Both an apology and funds for educational purposes are allowed under the 1988 Civil Liberties Act.

Inner City Minister Sues Democratic Party For Reparations: Over 200 Law Professors Review The Brief

Seattle, January 3, 2005 - On December 10th 2004, an inner-city minister, Rev. Wayne Perryman, filed a class action Reparation lawsuit (in the United States District Court in Seattle Case No. CV04-2442), alleging that "because of their racist past practices, the Democratic Party should be required to pay African Americans Reparations." Perryman said that he "based his case on the research that he gathered during the past five years" while writing the three editions of his latest book: Unfounded Loyalty: An In-depth Look Into The Love Affair Between Blacks &Democrats.

In his 100-page brief, Perryman concludes that the past racist policies and practices that were initiated against African Americans by the Democratic Party were no different than the policies and practices that were initiated by the Nazi Party against the Jews. In both situations millions of lives were destroyed (physically, mentally and economically).

In his brief, Perryman told the court that:

* In an effort to impede and or deny African Americans the same constitutional rights afforded to all American citizens, the Democratic Party established a pattern of practice of promoting, supporting, sponsoring and financing racially bias entertainment, education, legislation, litigations, and terrorist organizations from 1792 to 1962, and continued certain practices up to 2002.

* The Democrat’s 210 years of racist practices and cover ups not only negatively affected the entire black race; but these practices infected our entire nation with the most contagious and debilitating social disease known to mankind, racism. With landmark litigation, racist legislation and profane defamation, Democrats spent substantial amounts of money to produce racist campaign literature and to support racist entertainment, Jim Crow minstrel shows, stage plays ("The Klansman") and movies, ("The Birth of a Nation"), all in an effort to prove to the world that African Americans were a racially inferior group that should be treated and classified as "property" and not as "citizens."

* During the past 21 decades the Democrats successfully disguised and concealed their horrific acts against the African Americans by operating and committing these acts under the following aliases: "the Confederacy," "Jim Crow," "Black Codes," the "Dixiecrats" and the "Ku Klux Klan." Congressional records, historical documents, and the letters and testimonies from several brave black citizens revealed that these groups weren’t separate independent organizations, but were actual auxiliaries, divisions and/or the legislative efforts of the Democratic Party. The debates on the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871 further revealed that these auxiliaries were committed to use every means possible to carry out the Democrat’s racist agenda of "White Supremacy," including: lynchings, murders, intimidation, mutilations, decapitations and racially bias legislation and adjudication.

Perryman said, "To conceal the truth of their racist past (and as part of their effort to deceive the public), the Democratic Party made a conscience decision not to mention or disclose their true and complete history. On their official website they failed to disclose that as a party:

· Democrats opposed the Abolitionist.

· Democrats supported slavery and fought and gave their lives to expand it.

· Democrats supported and passed the Fugitive Slave Laws of 1793 &1854.

· Democrats supported and passed the Missouri Compromise to protect slavery.

· Democrats supported and passed the Kansas Nebraska Act to expand slavery.

· Democrats supported and backed the Dred Scott Decision.

· Democrats supported and passed Jim Crow Laws.

· Democrats supported and passed Black Codes.

· Democrats opposed educating blacks and murdered our teachers.

· Democrats opposed the Reconstruction Act of 1867.

· Democrats opposed the Freedman’s Bureau as it pertained to blacks.

· Democrats opposed the Emancipation Proclamation.

· Democrats opposed the 13th , 14th, and 15th Amendments to end slavery, make black citizens and give blacks the right to vote.

· Democrats opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1866.

· Democrats opposed the Civil Right Act of 1875 and had it overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.

· Various Democrats opposed the 1957 Civil Rights Acts.

· Various Democrats argued against the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Acts.

· Various Democrats argued against the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Acts.

· Various Democrats voted against the 1972 Equal Employment Opportunity Act.

· Democrats supported and backed Judge John Ferguson in the case of "Plessy v Ferguson."

· Democrats supported the School Board of Topeka Kansas in the case of "Brown v The Board of Education of Kansas."

· Southern Democrats opposed desegregation and integration.

· Democrats started and supported several terrorist organizations including the Ku Klux Klan, an organization dedicated to use any means possible to terrorize African Americans and those who supported African Americans.

Congressional records reveal that there wouldn’t be a question of Reparations today had Democratic President Andrew Johnson signed Senate Bill 60 (in 1866) which would have given each African American family 40 acres and a mule. Instead, Johnson vetoed the Bill and continued to block other key pieces of legislation that were designed to bring about "equality" for African Americans.

Perryman further argues that:

During the past 200 years, our government operated under a two party system which directed, developed and determined the policies of our country. Whatever the government did or did not accomplish (particularly as it pertained to African Americans), was directly related to which political party was in power at the time.

On April 29, 1861, Democratic President Jefferson Davis told his Democratic Confederate Congress that: "Under the supervision of the superior race, their [blacks’] labor had been so directed not only to allow a gradual and marked amelioration of their own condition, but to convert hundreds of thousands of square miles of wilderness into cultivated lands covered with a prosperous people; towns and cities had sprung into existence, and had rapidly increased in wealth and population under the social system of the South... [which made the South one of the 16th wealthiest places in the world]; and the productions in the South of cotton, rice, sugar, and tobacco, for the full development and continuance of which the labor of African slaves was and is indispensable, had swollen to an amount which formed nearly three-fourth of the exports of the whole United States and had become absolutely necessary to wants of civilized man…."

Seven years later during the 1868 Presidential campaign, the Democratic Party’s campaign poster read: "This is a White Man's Country - Let the White Men Rule."

At the turn of the century (1913), Democratic Senator Ben Tillman said, "We reorganized the Democratic Party with one plank, and the only plank, namely, that this is a white man's country, and white men must govern it." From 1792 to 2002 (a period of 210 years), the Democratic Party carried out their proud tradition of white man rule by never electing a black man to the United States Senate from their party.

From 1792 to 1962, the Democratic Party was more commonly referred to as the Party of White Supremacy. This was the period when most of the damage was done to African Americans (economically, physically, socially and mentally). It was during this period that the Democrats exhausted every effort that promoted slavery, destroyed Reconstruction and introduced Black Codes, Jim Crow laws and the Ku Klux Klan.

The chronicles of history reveals that the Institution of Slavery and Jim Crow Laws weren’t promoted, protected and preserved by prominent individuals or by the federal government. They were preserved by one political party and that party was the Democratic Party. Without their powerful political support, segregation would have ended long before 1865 and 1965. Plessy would have never taken Judge Furgeson to court, and the "Brown v. Board of Education" case would have never materialized.

The big question they had during the era of slavery was, whether or not a law or a person's actions violated the Constitution. The goal of the Democrats was to never allow the Constitution to be amended to include blacks as citizens. They wanted the freedom to treat African Americans as property (not as humans), without federal interference (this was their primary reason for fighting for their so-called States Rights). This was also the reason why Democrats were opposed to adding the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution and why they praised and supported the Dred Scott Decision. Republicans rushed to have these Amendments added to the Constitution while the states that were under Democrat control were still separated from the Union. Republicans knew they would have a difficult time getting these Amendments passed if the Democrats from the Southern States came back and joined their congressional (Democrat) counterparts in the North.

During era of slavery and Reconstruction, the Democrats were primarily interested in what they could do to blacks, not what they could do for blacks. From 1792 to 1962, the Democrats' support did not support or pass one law that was designed to give African Americans equality (in 170 years). With the exception of Truman’s efforts to integrate the military, every law that was introduced and passed by Democrats during this period was designed to hurt blacks, none were passed to help blacks. Perryman said, "Had the Democrats attempted to pass these same types of laws in 1864 that they claim credit for in 1964, the laws in 1964 would not have been necessary. Instead, in 1866 they passed Black Codes, in 1875 they passed Jim Crow Laws and in 1894 they passed the Repeal Act to repeal various pieces of previously passed Civil Rights legislation that were designed to give African Americans equality.

Perryman is quick to point out that the Democratic Party of today is not the same party of yesterday. However, as in the case of Michael Skakel (the Kennedy nephew who killed Martha Moxley), the Democrats, as Michael Skakel, must pay for their past actions. Perryman said, "The Skakels and the Moxleys were best friends and neighbors, but when the Moxleys learned that it was Skakel who murdered their daughter in 1975, they did not excuse his action because of the long term friendship. They made him pay, even though it was 25 years later. The same applies to the current relationship between the Blacks and Democrats. The Democrats should not expect Blacks to ignore the Democrat’s past racist practices, simply because of the current friendship."

Perryman’s research and 100-page brief include the works of our nation’s top history and law professors including African American Historian, Professor John Hope Franklin, Princeton’s History Professor James McPherson, Professor Hebert Donald of Harvard, Professor Allen Trelease of North Carolina, and Professor Bernard Schwartz of New York University’s School of Law, plus congressional records and documentaries from PBS and the History Channel.

Perryman said, "Since our experiences are similar to those inflicted on the Jews by the Nazi Party, and since Reparations under the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 affords Plaintiffs redress for past injuries; and amends for the wrong inflicted," he asked the court for the following:

WHEREFORE, Plaintiff, on Plaintiff own behalf and on behalf of the Class, prays for judgment as follows:

1. Declaring this action to be a proper class action and certifying Plaintiff as Class representative under Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure;

2. Awarding compensatory damages and rescission in favor of the Plaintiff and other members of the Class against the Defendant for the damages sustain as a result of wrongdoing of the defendants, together with interest thereon;

3. And as part of the compensatory damages the Plaintiffs recommends the following:

a. That an education fund be set up equivalent to the amount of $25,000 for every African American age 25 and younger that is currently alive as of the date of this lawsuit. The fund will be used solely for private school, college and trade tuitions and related educational costs.

b. That under the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 which authorizes a public education fund, to educate the public of the wrongs that took place, the Plaintiffs ask for funding to fund a major motion picture and film series depicting all of the events that were highlighted in this lawsuit (and others not mentioned) and that this film and major motion picture be distributed to every public and private school in America to be viewed by students as a regular part of their history curriculum for the next 50 years. We further ask that the Lead Plaintiff and the consultants of his choice be paid a consulting fee including traveling and related expenses to help produce the motion picture and the film series. The consulting fee will be the standard consulting fee for similar types of major motion picture projects.

c. We ask that the Defendant pay each African American citizen ages 26- 35 that is currently alive as of the date of this lawsuit, a total sum of $25,000 in reparations, each adult ages 36-45, $45,000 in reparations, each adult ages 46-55, $50,000 in reparations each and each citizen ages 56 and older $100,000 in reparations.

4. Awarding Plaintiff fees and expenses incurred in this action, including reasonable allowance of fees for attorneys to administer the Class Action claim and appropriate consultant fees.

5. Granting extraordinary equitable and/or injunctive relief as permitted by law, equity and federal and state statutory provisions sued on hereunder, including attaching, impounding, imposing a constructive trust upon or otherwise restricting the proceeds of the Defendant’s investments, checking, savings or other assets so as to assure that Plaintiff has an effective remedy.

6. Ordering a formal apology to African Americans for the wrong that was committed during the duration of the Defendants’ tenure as an organization or political party.

7. Granting such other and further relief as the Court may deem just and proper.

I think Rev. Perryman's main intent was to create a legal record of all the harm done to African Americans by the Democrat Party.

I'm not a legal expert but I believe that one must ask for some 'compensation' when suing for wrongdoing.

Please take a look at Perryman's website:

www.wayneperryman.com

And reread the details of his case in post #1.

Here's what happened:

Under oath in court, the Democratic Party was forced to tell the truth about the party's racist past and the harm that party caused to African Americans. In a legal maneuver to escape paying Reparations and have the case dismissed, the Democrats convinced the judge that since Rev. Perryman himself had not been personally or directly harmed, he had no standing to file the lawsuit on behalf of all African Americans.

Rev. Perryman responded to the Democrats' legal maneuver by submitting another legal brief to the court. In that document, Rev. Perryman said that "contrary to what the Democrats want the court to believe, none of the country's leading legal experts, including the 200 plus law professors who received copies of the original brief, have cited one legal precedent to dismiss the case."

My Comments:
Even thought Rev. Perryman didn't win any reparations...the harm done by the Democrat Party to African Americans is now a part of US legal history.

I think his goal was to get the history on record and force the Democrats to testify. Details are in post # 1.

I think Rev. Perryman's main intent was to create a legal record of all the harm done to African Americans by the Democrat Party. I'm not a legal expert but I believe that one must ask for some 'compensation' when suing for wrongdoing.

I did go to the website and found essentially the same information which includes a host of monetary demands which certainly appears to be compensation.

I for one, am happy to see this kind of a record put into the public light, but I am at the same time just as opposed to any type of reparations as I have been from all of the leftist attempts at such extortion. I would be completely disingenuous to now support it simply because it's aimed at Democrats.

This still fits into David Horowitz' list against reparations, point 1 "Assuming there is actually a debt, it is not at all clear who owes it".

After the amusement wears off, we must oppose this just as vehemently as all the others.

Hey, I agree with you all.....I'm not for reparations either.... but I think Perryman wanted to hold the Democrats responsible and to show other African Americans that their 'loyality' was 'unfounded'.

reparations WILL cause a civil war.
i did no wrong to no black, my parents did no wrong, my grandparents did no wrong, my great grandparents did no wrong. my sister eats lives and breaths geniology and has gone back hundreds of years. we are of irish descent and at a time in the past were not the most cherished nationality in the USA.
to me this just adds to the handout gimme gimme image many whites have towards blacks.
to all my friends no matter what race.
you want money, EARN IT! i ain't given it up because your dear old great great grandpappy was sold into slavery by a nieghboring tribe.
i don't want my rant to offend anyone, but i am very passionate about this issue and will fight by all means to thwart any attempt at getting into my pocket.

Thank you for the link.

I did go and read his site.

Partisanship wants me to back his attack on the rats, but for the sake of partisanship alone I am not and probably will never be convinced of reparations.

If he was going after the party to dissolve it because of it's past & present crimes, including racial cultivation I could back it.

His charge, as written, puts the entire political spectrum into chaos. That would include jailing the likes of Jesse Jackson, Sharpton, Rangel, Waters, etc. etc. for advancing crimes on a national basis through a political party, backed by the MSM, advanced through various times that they ran the respective governments tricling down to taxpayers and voters.

Then voters and members would be affected for just holding an voter ID of the wrong party.

I don't like it. None of it.

>>>>My case against the Democrats, Rev. Perryman told the court, "is about a powerful political party that promoted and practiced racism for 170 years (1792-1962) until it infected our entire nation and affected an entire race." The Democratic Party's racist practices, Rev. Perryman said, continue to affect African Americans today. Most of the acts committed by the Democrats against African Americans were initiated and committed at the state level under the Democratic Party's claims of States’ Rights based on the party's Jim Crow Laws and Black Codes.<<<<<<

Let's throw salt on this and charge the Democratic Party with 'Hate Crimes'.

I love it!!!

Hey, I agree with you all.....I'm not for reparations either.... but I think Perryman wanted to hold the Democrats responsible and to show other African Americans that their 'loyality' was 'unfounded'.

And I am very glad to see that put out, especially by a Black man who clearly has a vested interest. And it needs to be a part of any record that it was Republicans that saved the Union, abolished slavery and passed the 13th , 14th and 15th Amendments.

More stuff like this will clearly put the Dems on the defensive where they need to be, and for making financial slavery their platform for the past 75 years.

I hope you DO mean Democraps

Obviously, you haven't been here too long. I'm rabidly disgusted with DemonRats, so much so that I coined the word DemonRats, and make many of my statements graphically, that I make myself.

Just so you know, I've been Lady Jag for a year and was sciendiet from '99 til then. Just so you you know what you're looking for.

While I'm glad to see the Democrat party called out onto the carpet for their inherent bigotry, half of this story is bad news.

As the plaintive states, this case will become a part of judicial history for years to come. It can also be used to establish precedent in future, across-the-board reparation suits.

I'm half hoping this is appealed and struck down. Better to give them a temporary black eye than to cut all our noses off to spite all our faces.

I agree. Despite the plaintiff's intentions, this case becomes precedent for others with less-than-honorable intentions.

See post #34.

Rev. Perryman requested that the court order the Democratic Party to apologize for their racist past and the harm the party caused to African Americans. He also requested funds to produce a series of educational films depicting the true relationship between blacks and the two political parties.

You go, Rev.! : )

"I won't applaud reparations. No matter who gets nailed."

Same here. But I love reading the title of this thread!

I agree - reparations as it has been recently foisted upon the nation has tied the wrongs of slavery to the shortcomings of the American Negro. There is only one instance where reparations would be proper... when a surviving former slave comes forward with his/her claims.

Until then, it's just a shakedown targetted against Whites - some of whom to be sure may be descended from slave-owners, but who themselves are not responsible for what happened over 150 years ago.

The most telling - and universally absent from reparations discussions - factor: If reparations seeks to put a value on the damage from slavery, what price the blood of 600,000 who fought and died in our Civil War?

Since the democratic party has profited from racism, and the democratic party is now shown to be held liable, then why not get some of that money back? It is only in scholarship funds. It wouldn't be a 'get rich quick scheme'.

*** In an effort to impede and or deny African Americans the same constitutional rights afforded to all American citizens, the Democratic Party established a pattern of practice of promoting, supporting, sponsoring and financing racially bias entertainment, education, legislation, litigations, and terrorist organizations from 1792 to 1962, and continued certain practices up to 2002. **

Dynamite information! (And elsewhere in the article too!)

Hey, I agree with you all.....I'm not for reparations either.... but

I don’t see this as a reparations issue. If you read over the complaint it appears clear that what we are dealing with is on ongoing criminal enterprise with multiple subcomponents engaged in multiple related criminal acts.

This clearly should be prosecuted under RICO. The party should be striped of their assets and the ringleaders imprisoned for whatever amount of time it takes for them to be rehabilitated.

Hey we can all dream.
