American Slave Identification Reclassification ACT of 2017

 

o Whereas: those people deceased that were once identified as Negro, Black or Slave prior to the abolishment of slavery in 1865 shall be called “American Slaves”.

o Whereas: those people deceased that were identified as Negro, Black and Mulatto after the ratification of the Civil Rights act of 1866 will be called “Descendants of American Slaves”.

o Whereas: those people living and deceased that are called Black and African American with American Slave ancestors after the passage of the 1964 civil rights act shall be called “American Descendants of Slaves”.

o Whereas:  all official documents such, as birth certificates, death certificates and identification cards and drivers license issued by the state will reflect the ethnic identity of “American Descendant of Slaves”.

o Whereas: all forms and applications that require a person to identify their race or ethnicity have “American Descendant of Slaves” added to the selection of choices.
 

o Whereas: this criteria only applies to those Americans that are currently identified as black or African American that have ancestors that were once identified as Negro and Mulatto, that were born in the institution of slavery as slaves and were subject to the slaves laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the US Constitution.  
 

o On June 6, 2017 we hereby request that the legislative branches and Governor Matt Bevin of the Commonwealth of Kentucky pass and sign into law The American Slave Identification Reclassification Act of 2017.
