Majorities of any society set the moral and spiritual standards of society. That needs to stop.

ST. THOMAS, VI. In “The Last Negro: A Tribal People of Color in the United States” (published by AuthorHouse), author Krim M. Ballentine’s new philosophical guide, readers are shown a new approach, a reframing of the notion that, as Ballentine puts it, “one citizen of the United States owns the United States and therefore cannot grant or deny endowed, by God, or inalienable rights to others.”

Throughout the book, readers will be shown how the black population of America has not been given a “human” voice. “The book exposes using the word Negro as an attempt to dehumanize our voice, our status and to make us into a type of man-made slave,” states Ballentine. “The Last Negro” also explores the use of other terms such as white, Hispanic, natural born and naturalized citizens. Ballentine concludes that there should only be two types of perceived humans in America: natural born and naturalized citizens.

An excerpt from “The Last Negro”:

“African tribes forced into slavery forced into the United States together as various free labor tribes enslaved by unconstitutional measures and laws assimilated into a collective Tribe of Africans called Negro Tribe of the United States.”

Ballentine hopes that after reading his book, readers will become enlightened to its topic and pursue more knowledge on it. “The government must not sidestep the Constitution and interpret it how they wish,” he says. “Majorities of any society set the moral and spiritual standards of society. That needs to stop.”
