Black and Hispanic Communities on Fast Tract Toward Extinction: Leaders Alarmed


In as little as 68 years the Black community in Rochester will be half of what it is today. The Am I Not a Child campaign will be revealing its media blitz Tuesday. The campaign is designed to sound the alarm among the Black and Hispanic communities.

Rochester, NY (I-Newswire) January 14, 2014 - "In as little as 68 years the Black community in Rochester will be half of what it is today," said Am I Not a Child spokesman Dr. John Walker. "The black community is no longer replacing itself.

At 321 East Avenue, Rochester, NY on January 14th at 10:00 A.M. the Am I Not a Child campaign revealed its media blitz. The campaign is designed to sound the alarm among the Black and Hispanic communities. 36% all black pregnancies end in abortion. Rev. Jose Rodriguez expressed concern stating that, "The Hispanic community is quickly catching up to Black community. Abortion rates have increased by 67% among Hispanics in just 10 years with 1 in 4 pregnancies now ending in abortion."

The Am I Not a Child media campaign is hard-hitting televised messaging designed by members of the Black community to directly address the Black and Hispanic communities. "Abortion is having a devastating impact on the ability of our communities to flourish," says, Ayesha Kruetz of the Frederick Douglas Foundation of New York. She goes on to say, "It all comes down to our unwillingness as a society to protect the personhood of Black and Hispanic preborn boys and girls. Abortion is a concern for the Frederick Douglas Foundation. It represents the same root problem that permitted the enslavement of Blacks in the U.S.-refusing to acknowledge the personhood and therefore the 'inalienable' rights of the black man. That is exactly what the Supreme Court did in Roe vs Wade. And it is decimating our people. In 1787 we asked, 'AM I NOT A MAN AND A BROTHER?' and we overcame. The time has come for the Blacks and Hispanics of Rochester to raise our voice for the future of our people and ask, "Am I Not a Child?"

The following is an excerpt of the personhood statement that the Rochester community leaders have signed: "A person is an organism with unique human DNA governing his or her own maturation from conception to natural death…redefining personhood is arbitrary at best and mercenary at worst. The black community understands well what happens when a small group of people decides to force their narrow definition of personhood upon society: slavery and death. Abortion represents one small group of people deciding that boys and girls in the womb are not people." Cuevas Walker said, "Our communities are being silently slaughtered by abortion disguised as women's rights every day. And we can no longer afford to be politically correct."

Dr. John Walker summarized, "This is not a political issue. This is a human one. If we fail to protect the personhood of all humans at every stage of maturity then we are all slaves to the whims of another man's agenda. May God help us overcome this inhumanity."

Am I Not a Child is a media campaign of the Rochester Black/Hispanic Personhood Initiative, a collaboration of local community leaders which exists to educate the community toward an understanding of the personhood of all, especially the preborn girl and boy, laying a foundation for a personhood amendment to the constitution of New York State.
