Black people in the United States have the right to have their own Independent government according to international law and local constitutional law. Please note that international human rights law overrides local national law.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights

"Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law,"
Black Sudanese voting in 2018 for their area to become independent. Thereafter the nation of South Sudan became a reality.
"We have moved from the era of civil rights to an era of human rights." Martin Luther King Jr.

Below are some selected articles found in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that support the right to Black Independence. The Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 (General Assembly resolution 217 A) as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected.

Article 4.
No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.

 (Since those enslaved were never given the necessary land and resources to eke out a living on their own after “emancipation”, they were automatically FORCED to submit back to the same racist slave system under the FORM of a job. Black people were never offered the chance at TRUE FREEDOM which requires land and resources. Generation after generation of Black people are born into this circumstance of SERVITUDE forced to work “jobs” just to barely live while continuing to enrich the generational wealth of slave masters’ descendants and their economic system.) 

Article 8.
Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law.

(Remedy is also reparations which a United Nations commission affirms is owed to Blacks in America by the government. Self-government is the number one remedy against the continued ills of the same system that sanctioned “old slavery”. Independent political control of a territory puts the assets of that territory into the hands of the new government which can then grant reparations to the citizens.)

Article 15.
 (1) Everyone has the right to a nationality.
(2) No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his nationality nor denied the right to change his nationality.

Article 21.
(1) Everyone has the right to take part in the government of his country, directly or through freely chosen representatives.
(2) Everyone has the right of equal access to public service in his country.
(3) The will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of government; this will shall be expressed in periodic and genuine elections which shall be by universal and equal suffrage and shall be held by secret vote or by equivalent free voting procedures.

(Governments get their power of authority from The People who authorize it by willfully voting. Governments fall from authority once The People withdraw their consent/will.)

International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights

Article 1

1. All peoples have the right of self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.

(Black people in America, though acknowledged legally as a different people than their white enslavers, were never given the space and opportunity to practice self-determination. Black people were never given the choice of having a nation/territory under their own independent political control, but that right still exists and can be exercised now.)

Declaration of Independence

The founding document of the United States, the Declaration of Independence, set the standing principle of relationship between the government and The People with the following words:

Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

State Constitutions

The principle espoused by the Declaration of Independence that political power is inherent in The People who have a right to alter or abolish government, found its way into many state constitutions. A small number of them are shown below.


Section 1. Source of political power—origin, basis and aim of government.— That all political power is vested in and derived from the people; that all government of right originates from the people, is founded upon their will only, and is instituted solely for the good of the whole

Section 3. Powers of the people over internal affairs, constitution and form of government.—That the people of this state have the inherent, sole and exclusive right to regulate the internal government and police thereof, and to alter and abolish their constitution and form of government whenever they may deem it necessary to their safety and happiness



Declaration of Rights
Article 1.
That all Government of right originates from the People, is founded in compact only, and instituted solely for the good of the whole; and they have, at all times, the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their Form of Government in such manner as they may deem expedient.

The Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States is a treaty signed at Montevideo, Uruguay, on December 26, 1933, during the Seventh International Conference of American States. The Convention codifies the declarative theory of statehood as accepted as part of customary international law.

Article 1

The state as a person of international law should possess the following qualifications: a) a permanent population; b) a defined territory; c) government; and d) capacity to enter into relations with the other states.
