WASHINGTON — “When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have a moral obligation to do something, to say something. Dr. King inspired us to do just that,” says Congressman John Lewis (D-GA), known as “the conscience of the US Congress.” Before his recent stage IV pancreatic cancer diagnosis, Congressman Lewis applied that moral code to the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) crisis.

Mark Charles thinks it is time for America to have a national dialogue about race, gender and class.

Published May 30, 2019

WASHINGTON — With a release of a YouTube video,  Mark Charles, a tribal citizen of the Navajo Nation, announced he is running for president of the United States in 2020.

Charles, who is one of the country's leading experts on the Doctrine of Discovery, challenges Americans to get past the current politics of whether America needs to be great again or the opposing viewpoint that America is already great and enter into a national dialogue that involves race, gender and class.

He calls his campaign an 18-month journey.

In his announcement video that runs almost nine minutes, Charles argues "We the People" in the U.S. Constitution was not inclusive of women or Native Americans and only considered African American slaves as only being 3/5 of a person. Charles says even with the attempt to remedy the injustice of slavery of African Americans, the United States now has the highest rate of incarceration in the world with a disproportionate of people of color.

Charles says "We the people have never meant all the people." He feels it is time for inclusion. He says it is time for "We the people to truly means all the people."

Neither a Democrat or a Republican, Charles, who lives in Washington D.C., is running as an independent.
