NEWBURY PARK—“Equal outcome is socialism,” said Councilman McCoy at the Community Legacy lecture at Godspeak Community Church.  “Those empowered decide what equality is.”  

Title 7 of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, created Affirmative Action rights said McCoy which “treated an individual without regard to race” but this has now become the same as “equal outcomes” when extended produces “social engineering or adverse discrimination.”

According to McCoy, “Affirmative Action is unconstitutional.  The constitution does not mention race at all, but servitude” a point he took from Amendment XIII Section 1 (ratified by the required number of states on Dec. 6, 1865) which states:  “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” with Section 2 stating:  “Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.”

This was a point missed by the Plessy v. Ferguson Supreme Court decision issued in 1896 which upheld the constitutionality of racial segregation laws for  public facilities as long as the segregated facilities were equal in quality and established the doctrine that came to be known as “separate but equal.”

The lone dissent was written by Justice John Marshall Harlan that argued:   “Our constitution is color blind and neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens in respect of civil rights…all citizens are equal before the law.”

Martin Luther King, Jr. said:  “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in  a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

McCoy said, “The founders recognized that slavery was wrong but it was accepted by the British Empire.   The rights of slaves varied from colony to colony which later became state to state.  It was going to be addressed” and was in the 13th Amendment but this was not to happen until the Dred Scott v. Sandford Supreme Court decision in 1857 held that “a negro, whose ancestors were imported into (The U.S.) and sold as slaves, whether slave or free could not be an American citizen”—a 7-2 decision that was an “indirect catalyst” for the American Civil War and the loss of 650,000 lives in the “field of battle.”

The outcome after the Civil war was Amendments XIII, XIV (which gave “citizenship, due process and equal protection” and was ratified on July 9, 1869) and XV (which gave voting rights and was ratified Feb. 3, 1870) Section 1 states:  “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.”

McCoy stated that it was mixed marriages (that are even exemplified within his own family) that began to change the attitudes of America’s citizens and break the racial and “cultural divide.”   He said:  “What the nation needs is moral change” so that we can look at “everybody as Americans” and to “re-establish…the family in America.”
