After the Armenian Genocide, the systematic mass extermination and expulsion of 1.5 million ethnic Armenians within the Ottoman Empire from approximately 1914 to 1923, the world finally took note of the mass slaughter human beings.
See Note below regarding California and the Armenian Genocide. (1)
On Thursday, December 9th, 1948, the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of “Genocide” as General Assembly Resolution 260. On Friday, January 12th, 1951, the ninetieth (90th) day following the twentieth (20th) country to “deposit an instrument of ratification or accession” (i.e., to ratify the convention), the Secretary-General of the United Nations transmitted a copy of the convention to each Member of the United Nations announcing that the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of “Genocide” had met the requirements for enforcement.
Article 2 of the Convention defines “Genocide” as …
“… any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
Article 3 of the Convention defines the crimes that can be punished:
(b) Conspiracy to commit “Genocide”;
(c) Direct and public incitement to commit “Genocide”;
(d) Attempt to commit “Genocide”;
(e) Complicity in “Genocide”.
Dr. Raphael Lemkin, (Sunday, June 24th, 1900 — Friday, August 28th, 1959), a celebrated Polish lawyer of Jewish descent created the word “Genocide”in 1943 while the Jewish Holocaust was occurring.
It is estimated that between 1941 and 1945 six (6) million Jews (around two-thirds of Europe’s Jewish population at that time), were systematically murdered.
No one in their right mind, questions the Nazi “Holocaust” or “Genocide” of the European Jews.
However, what is questioned is …
Why it took the United States of America so long ( 40 years ) to ratify the “Genocide” convention?
Surprisingly or not, the United States of America was not among the first twenty (20) countries to ratify the Convention. In fact, it took forty (40) years from the Convention’s adoption in 1948, for the United States of America to ratify the “Genocide” Convention with certain “Reservations,” “Declarations” and “Understandings (i.e., provisos, salvos and quid pro quos) on Friday, November 25th, 1988 signed by President Ronald W. Reagan.
Yeah, I said 1988 …
So, what was the problem?
The problem was, that there was a “Genocide” going on in America!
With the exception of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, all presidents since Truman have endorsed ratification of the 1948 Genocide Convention.
However, on Thursday, June 16th, 1949, when President Harry S. Truman sought the United State Senate’s advice and consent to ratify the Genocide Convention, a small group of Southern Senators blocked the process.
Among those United State Senators were Southern segregationists who believed in segregation (i.e., a very, very strict separation of Blacks and Whites).
According to legal historian Lawrence LeBlanc, these good ol’ boys masquerading as United States Senators asked, “Could the convention be considered applicable to racial lynching?”
Yeah, I am talking about lynching Black Americans …
The truth is, that the fears of this small group of Southern United State Senators was not unfounded or without a basis in fact.
In 1951 the singer and Civil Rights activist Paul Robeson (Saturday, April 9th, 1898 – Friday, January 23rd, 1976) joined Labor and Civil Rights activist William L. Patterson (Thursday, August 27th, 1891 – Wednesday, March 5th, 1980) in a petition to the United Nations that accused America of“Genocidal” treatment of Black Americans.
The petition reads as follows:
“We maintain that the oppressed Negro citizens of the United States, segregated, discriminated against and long the target of violence suffer from ‘Genocide’ as the result of consistent, conscious, unified policies of every branch of government.”
Professedly, there were several concerns regarding the United Nations “Genocide” Convention, one of which was the lynching of Negroes in the United State of America. Apparently, if lynching Negroes could be defined as “Genocide”, then “Genocide” could not be defined as a crime in the United State of America for the benefit of those lynching Negroes.
Yeah, I can see this would be a very, very big problem for the Southern segregationists …
The facts are in now and they are very, very clear.
1. Not even the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s could move the United State of America to adopt the United Nations “Genocide” convention.
2. As a matter of fact, after the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, the Southern segregationists took their outright racist and eugenic mission to a higher level.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Associate United States Supreme Court Justice, expressed this next level of “Genocide” very well in 2009 via The New York Times when she said:
And I quote …
3. What Black Americans have always known, regarding the mission of Margaret Sanger’s American Birth Control League (1921), which is today’s Planned Parenthood Federation of America (1942), was confirmed by sitting Associate United States Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
According to La Verne Tolbert, Ph.D., Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of “Teaching Like Jesus Ministries, Inc.” and former Planned Parenthood Federation of America Board Member in New York City (1975 – 1980), Planned Parenthood not only targets the inner-city, but abortion alone has killed over 20,000,000 million Black Americans in the womb of their own mothers.
According to Dennis Howard, President of the “Movement for a Better America”, between 1968 and 2018, abortion alone has killed over 22,508,000million Black Americans.”
Let me be direct, unreserved, straightforward, sincere and without any inhibition here.
If according to the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, “killing members of the group, causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group, deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part, imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group and|or forcibly transferring children of the group to another group” qualifies as an act of “Genocide” …
Then today, on the basis of the documentation detailing the impact of abortion in Black America alone from the abortion industry itself …
Like Paul Robeson and William L. Patterson in the 1950s.
Like Cecile Moore, the 1965 president of the Philadelphia NAACP chapter, who said: “Planned Parenthood’s plan is replete with everything to help the Negroes commit race suicide.”
Like the 1973 version of Jesse Jackson who said: “Abortion is ‘Genocide’. Anything growing is living …” and like the 1977 version of Jesse Jacksonwho said: “Abortion is a vital issue. It does require immediate and wide attention because it really is a matter of life vs. death, because it is a matter of rights vs. morality.”

CHARGE ABORTION IN BLACK AMERICA IS “GENOCIDE”!!
Lord, have mercy.
Brothers, we really need to talk.
(1) In July of 2004, after the California State Legislature passed the Armenian Genocide Insurance Act, descendants of Armenian Genocide victims settled a case for about 2,400 life insurance policies from New York Life written on Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire. Around 1918, the Turkish government attempted to recover payments for the people it had killed, with the argument that there were no identifiable heirs to the policyholders. The settlement provided $20 million, of which $11 million was for heirs of the Genocide victims.
