Black nationalists declare ‘legal residency’ in Newark woman’s home, police disagree
A Newark homeowner called in police last week after four Black nationalists moved into a new home she was renovating and declared that as sovereign citizens of the Al Moroccan Empire, “their status permitted them access to the property,” authorities said.
Weeks earlier, the homeowner said she’d gotten papers in the mail from the Al Moroccan Empire Consulate claiming rights to her property. She described the documents as “a lot of words and a lot stuff that really don’t mean anything.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center describes the Al Moroccan Empire as a part of the anti-government “Moorish sovereigns,” also called “Moors,” who are known to violently clash with law enforcement.
According to the SPLC, “Moorish sovereigns believe their status as members of a sovereign nation imparts immunity from federal, state and local authorities.”
They allegedly argue that status exempts them from paying taxes, buying car auto insurance and register their vehicles.
I am sure the Democratic Party loves these guys. They probably fund them.
