Crime, Memes, and Party: amy d @AmyDentata Following yes, even criminals are people that's how human rights work 5:46 PM - 17 May 2018 Full text if you don’t want to swipe: “Yes, even criminals are people. That’s how human rights work. Because once you stop working that way, you can make anyone into a criminal. Dark skin gets equated to ‘gang member.’ Trans gets equated to ‘sex worker’ or ‘pedophile.’ ‘Sex worker’ gets equated to ‘human trafficker.’ And then before you know it, the state cracks down on everybody that isn’t straight, cis, white, and ‘gainfully employed.’ Of course the loophole has always been there, right there in the 13th amendment. The 13th Amendment to the Constitution declared that ‘Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, EXCEPT AS A PUNISHMENT FOR CRIME, whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.' But people say ‘oh it’s about criminals, so that’s okay.’ It’s not okay to dehumanize anyone. And once you let the state dehumanize anyone, they’ll eventually come after you, too. THE LAW DOES NOT DEFINE MORALITY. Slavery was legal. The Holocaust was legal. Only allowing non-criminals to be human means you give up any and all moral authority to the state, which by design has no concept of morality. If you let criminality dehumanize people, you have rejected the very foundation of morality. If you let criminality justify dehumanization, you are always one legislative act away from losing your humanity. The solution isn’t to get meaner, crueler, and more fascist. The solution is to re-humanize our society, de-militarize our police, de-criminalize people who aren’t causing any harm, and always remember the difference between the law and morality. Remember the difference between the law and how the law is enforced. Refuse to let law enforcement be above the law. Refuse to let ‘law and order’ become our core value, when what we need is a moral foundation that isn’t subject to the whims of legislation or theology.” by @ AmyDentata on Twitter.

This measure came as the third and last of the so-called ‘Reconstruction amendments’, passed after the end of the Civil War by the Radical Republicans in Congress. The Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery in the country, expanding on President Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Emancipation Proclamation which freed slaves in the Confederacy. The second Reconstruction Amendment, the Fourteenth, provided citizenship and equal protection for freedmen. The Fifteenth granted African-American men the right to vote. It was passed by Congress in February 1869, and received ratification from the requisite number of states the following year, being formally adopted in March 1870. For many abolitionists, this was the most important measure of the Reconstruction effort. In the words of black abolitionist Frederick Douglass, <b><i>&ldquo;slavery is not abolished until the black man has the ballot&rdquo;</i></b>. Black enfranchisement meant that for the first time in American history, African-Americans were elected to political office. These included first black Senator, Hiram Rhodes Revels, Representative Joseph Rainey, and Governor P.B.S. Pinchback of Louisiana (who until 1990 was the only black state governor in U.S. history). In states such as South Carolina, slaves made up a majority of the population, meaning that once enfranchised they dominated state politics. Despite being enshrined in constitutional law, African-Americans were prevented from voting through discriminatory measures like poll taxes, literacy tests, and grandfather clauses, as well as by the violent intimidation of the recently formed Ku Klux Klan. The 1965 Voting Rights Act, signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson, finally provided for the full registration of black voters in the U.S. This measure came in the larger context of the Civil Rights Movement, which also targetted post-Reconstruction injustices such as Jim Crow segregation.</small><br/></p><blockquote><b><i>&ldquo;The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude&rdquo;</i></b><br/></blockquote></blockquote>
