When will Justice Prevail? Inequities and Injustice in America: Leonard Peltier and Trayvon Martin– an Ongoing Legacy

America is the most racially, culturally, ethnically, religiously diverse Country in the World. This Country was built on the backs of the Black Slaves and other Racial/ Ethnic Minorities such as the Asians and Hispanics. Poor indentured White servants, along with Women and Children also played a role in the building of America. The Indigenous Populations of America were not counted at all and there was hope that they would all be exterminated or somehow magically disappear. The “founding fathers” of the United States of America were White Christian Men of means – meaning they had wealth and with that, power. The formation of Democracy and the Constitution of the United States was formulated for and by the White Christian Men of means. Entitlement of the elite was a major piece of the foundation that is America. Contrary to belief Democracy was not an American concept; it was first conceived by the Greeks long before Christianity found its way into the world. In America our “fore-fathers” created the Constitution of the United States from the democratic governing principles of The Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) of North America. The Iroquois have been Indigenous to North America since Humans began to populate this part of the World. Accordingly the Constitution-makers forming the United States of America’s Constitution did not follow verbatim the governing practices of the Haudenosaunee People, whose democratic principles included Rights for Women, Children, Animals, Plant Life, and the Mother{Earth} Herself.
