GOING DOWN THAT RABBIT HOLE AGAIN…

harriet-tubman1“I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.” Nana Harriet Tubman

I Won't RestWe do not realize that the massive deaths of Black males constitute the genocide of Black people (as it takes Black males to make Black babies and ensure future Black generations).” ― Nana Frances Cress Welsing, The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors

From now on, I am dedicating all of my posts to Black African American females because a race can rise no higher than its’ women.

As in all of my posts, UNDERLINED WORDS are links.

Pagan EggAnother year has come and Black Africans throughout the Diaspora are still searching for eggs that allegedly were laid by rabbits because we just can’t let go of the pagan ritual of Easter.  Because of this, I am reposting this article that I wrote for Easter 2015 with a few modifications.

KeystrokeThe other day, I found myself wondering why when I was growing up we always ate ham on Easter Sundays.  As I always say, “Anything I/you want to know is just a keystroke away,” so I went “key-stroking” and found the answer, which is a mindblower.

CautionCAUTION: CONTINUING TO READ THIS POST MAY BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR RELIGION

Chris RockIf you choose to continue embracing your current Christian beliefs, I strongly advise you to close this post and not read another word and I mean this sincerely.

Amos Wilson Know SelfFailure to heed my warnings could result in your spiraling into a distressful mental state known as “cognitive-dissonance,” where your beliefs will clash with your behavior.  Should this occur, you must immediately change your beliefs to fit your behavior or change your behavior to fit your beliefs to avoid serious psychiatric issues.

Wrong CrossFor your own sanity, you must change your perceptions or run the risk of questioning ALL of your beliefs about Christianity and your life.

MisEducationIf you choose to continue reading, John 8:32 (KJV) says: “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Jesus SavesIf you have read this far, read John 4:22 – 24 which says: 22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. 23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

BibleIn August of 1984, I decided to read the Bible (all 66 Books ) from cover to cover, which took less than a month.  A year later, I had read the entire Bible, six (6) consecutive times and I had far more questions than I had answered.

Xmas TreeThe biggest question of all was why Christians were engaging in non-scriptural activities?  Not only were we celebrating activities that were not scripturally based, in many cases (such as Xmas trees) we were actually going against the scriptures.

Slave Ship JesusHave you ever wondered where your most cherished beliefs about Christianity come from or why you do the things that you do?

Curse of HamHow did you learn about your religion?  Who taught you Christianity and who benefitted from your embracing it?  Remember, the first Africans in the Americas were not Christians.

InsanityHave you learned anything new, since you first began attending church during childhood?  Or, are you just echoing the same subjects year end and year out?  Remember, if you repeat a lie often enough, you will eventually embrace it as truth.

Poke in EyeHow much new information can you get from your Pastor by hearing the same repetitious sermons?

Cash EddieAre you just attending church for entertainment purposes and to deify your Pimp/Pastor?

OstaraDo you ever question why Easter Sunday does not occur on the same date every year?  What has the spring equinox to do with Jesus?

JCWho taught you to believe chocolate rabbits, colored eggs, hanging plastic eggs on trees, Easter baskets, Easter Bonnets, new clothes, going to church on Easter Sunday and Sunrise Services honor the resurrection of Jesus Christ?

FaithHave you read this in your Bible, or are these just childhood fables that you are passing on to your children?

Easter HamA family was preparing their Easter feast and the wife asked the husband to go to the store and buy the ham, which he did.  Upon his return, the wife asked why he did not have the butcher cut off the ends of the ham.

He replied, “Because you didn’t tell me to have the ends cut off.”  She said, “You know I always have the ends of the ham cut off.  This has always been our Easter tradition.”

He asked, “Why is that your Easter tradition?  When I grew up, we didn’t have that tradition.”  She replied, “I don’t know, my mother always had the ends of the ham cut off.”  Since her mother was visiting for Easter, they decided to ask her why she always had the ends of the ham cut off.

Dying Easter eggsThey both went into the kitchen where her mother was helping the grandchildren dye Easter Eggs and asked her why she always had the ends of the ham cut off.  She said, “Because my mother always had the ends of the ham cut off.”  Since grandma was still alive and living in a Nursing Home, they decided to call her in hopes of solving this inter-generational mystery.

Once grandma answered her phone, the wife asked her why she always had the ends of the ham cut off. Grandma immediately replied, “Because my roaster was not big enough.”

Easter Egg Tree 2My neighbor has hung plastic “Easter Eggs” on a tree in her front yard.  As I drove pass a church the marquis was advertising the upcoming “Easter Egg Hunt,” causing me to reflect on many of my oldest religious questions.

I wanted to know where the tradition of eating ham on Easter came from, so I let my fingers do the walking and what I found, literally blew my mind.

Amos Wilson JesusI expected to find a credible connection between the celebration of Easter, with all of its trappings, the Bible and Jesus Christ.  To my astonishment, Easter has absolutely nothing to do with the Bible, Jesus Christ or Christianity.

Rabbits and EggGoing back to my childhood days of growing up in the church, I recall always wondering about the correlation between the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and a rabbit.  I would also wonder about the relationship between a rabbit and an egg.

Platypus EchidnaOnce I learned about biology, I really became perplexed, because rabbits are mammals and the only two mammals that lay eggs are platypus and echidna.

Women in ChurchSadly, Christians engage in many ritualistic behaviors (like cutting the ends of the ham off) without having any idea why.  The celebration of Easter is one of these ritualistic traditions where time has obscured the true reasons and origin for this celebration.

Pope JP2The strategy of the Roman Catholic Church (which is the origin of all Christian churches) is to send missionaries into foreign lands and enslave the minds of the citizens.

Panare BibleThis is done by replacing “pagan” beliefs with Christian beliefs.  The technique is to incorporate Christian beliefs and rituals into their “pagan” beliefs and rename their Deities.  Read my post on the Panare Indians Crucifying Jesus.

JesusOver time, whichever Deity the conquered people were worshiping prior to the arrival of Christian missionaries, the name would be gradually changed, and replaced by the Roman Catholic Deity known as Jesus Christ, while the “heathens/savages” continued engaging in their “pagan” rituals.

JC RisingConsequently, the Roman Catholic Church replaced the “pagan” ritual of Easter with the JewishPassover,” and then changed that into the Resurrection of Jesus, while maintaining all of the “pagan” rituals of coloring eggs, rabbits laying eggs, and eating ham, etc.

Dead Jesus1 Corinthians 15:12-14 says; 12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?  13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: 14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain”

AscensionThe foundation of Christianity is the belief that Jesus Christ rose from the dead and ascended into heaven on Easter SundayIf you do not believe this, “…your faith is also in vain.”  The word “Easter” appears in the Bible only once, and it has absolutely nothing to do with the resurrection of Christ.

Acts 12:4 KJV says in reference to Peter’s arrest, “And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.”

Easter SundayHaving learned basic math in elementary school, I never could accept the story that the death of Jesus occurred on Friday and He arose three (3) days later, on Sunday.  No matter how many times I count, Friday thru Sunday is only two days and not three days because Friday to Saturday is one day and Saturday to Sunday is two (2) days.

Furthermore, unless we look at a calendar, we do not know when Easter occurs from one year to the next.  How is it possible to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus on different days every year?

Pagan GoddessSimple, Easter originally had nothing to do with Jesus Christ.

Happy Spring EquinoxEaster always, occur on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox, which can result in a 2-4 week difference in the date, from one year to another.

Pagan EasterChristians throughout the world worship Easter Sunday as the resurrection day for Jesus, which has nothing to do with neither Jesus nor His resurrection.  On the contrary, Biblically speaking, celebrating Easter in actuality is celebrating a pagan ritual.

In an effort to find the definition and origin of Easter, I had to go outside of the Bible, because there is absolutely no information on the definition of Easter in the text of the Bible.

After reading information from several sites, including: “The Plain Truth About EASTER.” I found out that Acts 12:4 referred to the pagan holiday established during the time of Nimrod, the grandson of the Biblical Noah.

Tower of Babel BaalAccording to the Bible, Nimrod built the “Tower of Babel” and began worshiping idols, including Moloch and the Sun-god Baal which were contrary to the teachings of Noah.

The WhoreAs the story goes, Cush, the son of Noah married Semiramis and they had a son, whom they named Nimrod.  After the death of Cush, his wife Semiramis married their son Nimrod.

Genesis 10:9 says: “He was a mighty hunter before the Lord: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord.”

Osiris2An enemy killed Nimrod, and cut his body into fourteen pieces and scattered them throughout his kingdom.  This is a plagiarized version of the ancient Egyptian God Osiris.

Semiramis wanted to deify her husband/son Nimrod, so she created the myth that Nimrod ascended into heaven and became the “Sun-god” and people was to worship him as the GodBaal.”

Goddess IshtarSince you cannot have a god without a goddess, Semiramis deified herself by saying she ascended to the moon, which has a 28-day cycle and emits an egg at the end of that cycle.  This egg fell to the earth and Semiramis hatched out of it and her name was changed to Ishtar (pronounced Easter); ergo, the “Easter Egg.”

Ishtar 2Semiramis/Ishtar/Easter’s hatching occurred after the first full moon after the Spring Equinox, which at the time, occurred during the Jewish “Passover,” and she became the “Goddess of Fertility.”  She was also known as the “Goddess of Spring and the Goddess of Prostitutes.”

TammuzLegend has it that Nimrod sent a “sun-ray” down to earth and immaculately impregnated Semiramis/Ishtar/Easter and she gave birth to their son who she named Tammuz. Like his father/brother Nimrod, Tammuz was also a mighty hunter and he loved rabbits.

The SpellWhile Tammuz was hunting for rabbits a wild boar (pig) killed him.  His mother Semiramis/Ishtar/Easter became very distraught and mourned for her dead son Tammuz, as written in Ezekiel 8:4: 4 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.”

Semiramis/Ishtar/Easter was walking through the forest mourning her loss, when she found an injured bird, which she healed in honor of her son Tammuz by transforming it into a rabbit.

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????She then decried that on the anniversary of her son Tammuz’s death, rabbits would lay colorful eggs.

Easter BasketThe ancient Babylonians hid these eggs and the children would search for them.  Today, children are given Easter baskets, with their colorful grass as symbolic representations of bird nests, or should I say, “Rabbit” nests.

Correct, Mixed, FalseTo include adults during the celebration of Easter, naked women were painted, using various pastel colors, then they hid in the forest.  Men would go “hunting” for them and when found, they would have sex, resulting in sexual orgies.

Church HatsThis is the origin of buying new Easter Bonnets and clothes for the Easter parade to church.

Lent IsSemiramis/Ishtar/Easter mandated that everyone had to fast for forty days prior to the anniversary of Tammuz’s death, which is the Christian ritual of “Lent.”

After the fast, they placed virgins on the altar and the priests had sex with them.  These former virgins gave birth nine months later.

Bohemian GroveThree months after birth, during the first full moon after the Spring Equinox, they brought their newborn babies back to the altar.  The priests would then sacrifice these newborn babies in honor of the God Moloch (Allegedly this still occurs annually at the Bohemian Grove , in California, honoring the pagan God Moloch) and use their blood to color Semiramis/Ishtar/Easter’s eggs.

Colloring EggsThis is the origin of coloring eggs for Easter.

easter ham 2At the end of the forty-day fast (Lent), a celebration feast was held and because he was killed by a pig, on Semiramis/Ishtar/Easter Sunday, everyone would hold a feast with ham being the entrée; ergo, this is the origin of the “Easter Ham.”

Hot Cross BunsIn addition, they will serve hot cross buns in recognition of Tammuz.

Ash WednesdayFurthermore, because of the love Semiramis/Ishtar/Easter had for Tammuz, everyone had to end their prayer by making the sign of a “t” across their heart, as many Christians still do, believing they are making the sign of the “Cross.”

SunriseFinally, because Nimrod was transformed into Baal, the Sun-god, he is celebrated every Easter by Christians during their “Sunrise Services,” which is clearly an abomination to the teachings of the Bible.

Children“We do not realize that the massive deaths of Black males constitute the genocide of Black people (as it takes Black males to make Black babies and ensure future Black generations).” ― Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors

1 VillageFrom now on, I am dedicating all of my posts to Black African American females because a race can rise no higher than its’ women.

As in all of my posts, UNDERLINED WORDS are links.

OscarsOn May 16, 1929, White American Actors and Actresses created the Academy Awards, or “Oscars,” for White American Actors and Actresses.  It has since become the premier annual performance hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Betty DavisThe winners in the various categories receive a statuette, officially called “The Academy Award of Merit.”  The nickname of this statuette is “Oscar.” Legend has it that Bette Davis  named the statuette “Oscar after her first husband Harmon Oscar Nelson, when she was president of the Academy.

I would estimate that tens of millions of people watched last night’s airing of the 88th Academy Awards and I am certain that millions of these viewers were Black African Americans in general and Black African American women in particular.

Chris PosterIn spite of all of the negative hoopla surrounding the absence of Black African American actors being nominated, we still watched.  Although some Black African Americans were demanding that Black African American actors boycott attending and Brother Chris Rock refuse to “Host” it, millions of Black African Americans were glued to their TV sets “oohing and awing” at all of the “White glamorous people.”

Wooden AwardIn 1939 Nana Hattie McDaniel was the first Black African American female, as well as the oldest winner (44 y/o) and the first person of African ancestry to win an Academy Award.  She appeared in more than 300 films, although she only received screen credits for about 80.

Hollywood StarNana Hattie has two Stars on Hollywood Walk of Fame , one for her radio career and the other for her movie career.

Ho and HattieThere was intense competition for the role of “Mammy” in the movie “Gone With The Wind” and was nearly as intense as it was for the role of “Scarlet O’Hara.”  So much so, that First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt wrote the film producer, asking that he select her maid, Elizabeth McDuffie for the role.  Although Ms. McDuffie did not have any acting experience, she had numerous years of “on-the-job” training as a maid.

Hattie and ClarkIt is said that Clark Gable  interjected his preference for Nana McDaniel Hattie and she arrived at the audition wearing a “maid’s uniform” and received the part.

PremierThe premier showing of “Gone With The Wind” occurred on December 15, 1939 at the Lowe’s Grand theater on Peachtree Street in Atlanta.  Nana Hattie’s role as “Mammy” was considered “Too familiar” for the racist standards of the south because of the way she spoke to Whites in particular and the character “Scarlet O’Hara” in general.

ArrestedBecause of this violation of southern “Jim Crow” standards, all of the Black African American actors and actresses were barred from attending and their names were excluded from all advertisement and souvenir programs.

As a consolation, Nana Hattie was permitted to attend Hollywood’s premier thirteen days later on December 28, 1939 and her picture was included in the souvenir program.

Walter White ObitNot only did Nana Hattie have to contend with racism and “Jim Crow” she also had to put up with the ignorance of Walter White and the NAACP.

Garvey 1Remember, the NAACP was formed to steer Black African Americans away from Baba Marcus Garvey and the “Universal Negro Improvement Association.”

Uncle Tom's CabinWalter White called Nana Hattie an “Uncle Tom”, for perpetuating White racist stereotypes, which reflects his total ignorance because the character “Uncle Tom” in “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” is actually a hero to the other enslaved Black African Americans.  When a trader to the Black African American race are called “Uncle Tom,” you are actually insulting “Uncle Tom.”

GWTW DefianceNana Hattie responded by saying, “Why should I complain about making $700 a week playing a maid?  If I didn’t, I’d be making $7 a week being one.”

On February 29, 1940, Nana Hattie delivered the following acceptance speech:

Oscar SpeechAcademy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, fellow members of the motion picture industry and honored guests: This is one of the happiest moments of my life, and I want to thank each one of you who had a part in selecting me for one of their awards, for your kindness.  It has made me feel very, very humble; and I shall always hold it as a beacon for anything that I may be able to do in the future.  I sincerely hope I shall always be a credit to my race and to the motion picture industry.  My heart is too full to tell you just how I feel, and may I say thank you and God bless you.”

By the way, she and her guest were segregated during the entire presentations at a table for two.

SOSJames Baskett was the first Black African American male to receive an Oscar, howbeit an “Honorary Oscar for his performance as Uncle Remus in the Song of the South in 1948. This gesture was designed to appease Black African American movie goers.

Defiant OnesBaba Sidney Poitier was the first Black African American male actor nominated for an Academy Award for his role in “The Defiant Ones,” in 1958.  This is the movie where he was chained to Tony Curtis as escaped inmates and Baba Sidney’s character “Noah” sacrifices his freedom to go back to prison with Tony Curtis character “Joker.”  The end of the movie finds Joker’s head nestled on Noah’s chest while Noah sings to him with the posse and bloodhounds approaching.

SidneyIn 1963, Baba Sidney Poitier was the first Black African American male to win an Oscar for “Best Actor,” and the youngest at age 37 for he the  in thovie movie “Lilies of the Field.”

Lilies of the Field PosterBaba Sidney plays Homer Smith, a homelesshandyman” driving an old station wagon with mechanical problems.  As he crosses the Arizona desert, he comes upon a farm operated by German Nuns and ask for water for his car.  After getting the water, he is persuaded to do a “small roof repair” by the “Mother Superior.”  Homer begins working for the Nuns, expecting to be paid cash, yet, they never pay him.  They learned well from the slave owners.

BibleIn lieu of being paid money for his labors, the “Mother Superior” gives him a Bible quote, “Sermon on the Mount” instead.  Ergo, the movie title, “Lilies of the Field.”

In essence, the scriptwriter is saying that although Black African American males may have skills, they are not worthy of a “real” job, wages, nor a home, as Homer sleeps in his car.

In addition to laboring for no money for these White German Nuns, Homer also gets a paying job and uses his money to feed these White German Nuns, by buying them groceries.

ChurchAt the conclusion of the movie, Homer built a church for these White German Nuns and teach them how to sing the “Negro Spiritual,” Amen, as he cranks up his station wagon and continues his nomadic journey.

RecordAfter all, it would be improper for Homer, a Black African American to put down stakes and live with these White German women, even if they are Nuns.  His duties as a servant was finished, it was time for him to continue his nomadic travels.

OscarIn 1982, nearly twenty years later, Baba Louis Gossett, Jr.  became the second Black African American male recipient of White Hollywood’s most prestigious award, the Oscar.  He won the Oscar for “Best Supporting Actor” in his role as Gunnery Sergeant Emil Foley in the movie, “An Officer and a Gentleman.”

Zachary “Zack” Mayo (Richard Gere) arrives at Naval Officer Candidate School (OCS) and encounters Gunnery Sergeant Emil Foley, who makes his life a living hell, in hopes of making turning him into an excellent Naval Officer and a Gentleman.

SaluteOf course, thirteen week weeks later, “Zackis graduates as an Ensign in the U. S. Navy and now outranks his teacher, Gunnery Sergeant Emil Foley, who now has to salute the new Ensign every time he sees him.

OscarIn 1989, Brother Denzel Washington became the first Black African American male to receive two Best Supporting Actors.  One for his role as Pvt. Silas Trip in the movie “Glory.”  Pvt. Trip is an escaped slave who joined the Union Army.

PosterAlthough Pvt. Trip does not expect things to get better for “Negroes” if the North wins the Civil War, he joins, “just in case.”  Of course, racism is rampant in the Union Army and Pvt. Trip ultimately beaten for going goes  AWOL in hopes of finding shoes.  Upon his return, he is beaten under the orders of the White Northern Officer, Col. Robert Shaw, which Pvt. Trip endures without making a sound.

As the scriptwriters would have it, Col. Shaw earns the respect of Pvt. Trip, and they both are killed in the same battle.

OscarSister Whoopie Goldberg became the second Black African American actress to win the coveted Oscar in 1990 playing the role of “Ode Mae Brown” in the movie “Ghost.”  This was the highest grossing movie in 1990, costing $22 million to make and grossing over $505.7 million at the box office.

PosterThe plot centered around Patrick Swayze’s character “Sam Wheat,” a banker killed by a mugger and his girlfriend, played by Demi Moore’s character “Molly Jensen.”  In actuality, Sam’s death was a failed attempt at preventing him from finding out about some banking improprieties.

TrioSister Whoopie Goldberg’s character “Ode Mae Brown” is a con artist posing as a “medium” who can actually hear Sam.  Now she must assist Sam in convincing Molly that she is in danger from Sam’s former business partner “Carl Bruner” played by Tony Goldwyn.

In the end, the bad guys die and go to “Hell” and the good guy, Sam, says his final farewell to Molly then climbs the stairway to Heaven.

I did not see this movie, so there is nothing I can say about it.

OscarIn 1996, Brother Cuba Gooding, Jr. became the youngest Black African American male to win an Oscar for his role as Rod Tidwell in the movie, “Jerry Maguire.”

Cuba & TomJerry Maguire who is played by Tom Cruise decides to go it alone as a “Sports Management” agent and pursues Cuba’s character “Rod Tidwell.”  Of course, Tom Cruise has to have a leading lady, who is Renee Zellweger, whom he ends up with at the end of the movie, along with his money-maker, “Rod Tidwell.”

I never saw the movie, so I don’t have any more to say about it.

OscarIn 2004, Baba Morgan Freeman became the oldest Black African American to win an Oscar at age 67 for his role as “Eddie Scrap-Iron Dupris” in “Million Dollar Baby.”

The Plot is about Hillary Swank’s character Maggie showing up in Clint Eastwood’s character, “Frankie Dunn’s” boxing gym wanting him to help her become a professional boxer and he refuses.

PosterBaba Morgan Freeman’s character, “Eddie Scrap-Iron Dupris” naturally comes to her aid and helps her win the support of Frankie.  “Eddie Scrap-Iron Dupris” also narrates most of the movie, which is why he won his Oscar.

OscarBrother Jamie Foxx became the first Black African American to receive two Oscar nominations in the same year in 2004 for his roles in “Collateral” and “Ray.”  He received the Oscar for portraying Baba Ray Charles in the movie “Ray.”

Two Rays2Brother Jamie did an excellent job telling the world the story of Baba Ray Charles.

OscarIn 2006, Sister Jennifer Hudson breaks all kinds of records in her role as Effie White in the motion picture “Dream Girls.”  She became the first Black African American actor (male or female) to win an Oscar for her first acting performance.

PosterShe also became the youngest Black African American actress to win an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress at age 25 and this was also the first film featuring two Black African American actors for Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting ActressSister Jennifer also became the first Black African American actor to win an Oscar for a musical film.

The film is based on the rise of Motown and The Supremes.  It had an $80 million budget, which was the most expensive film with an all Black African American cast.  The box office receipts grossed over $154 million, which proved to be a very wise investment.

The plot follows the rise and fall of a girl group during the 60s and 70s, ultimately leading to its breakup and a solo career, resulting in stardom for one of its singers.

I didn’t see this movie, so there is nothing I can say about it.

OscarBrother Forest Whitaker; won his Oscar in 2006 portraying Baba Idi Amin in the movie “The Last King of Scotland.”  This was a fictional account depicting Baba Idi Amin  as a despicable and barbaric African dictator who violently seized control of his country Uganda.

The movie centers around James McAvoy’s character “Nicholas Garrigan” arriving in Uganda, recently graduating from medical school.  He is summoned to treat President Amin’s injuries resulting from a car accident and while there, takes the initiative to shot an injured cow, putting it out of its’ misery.

Of course, this impresses President Amin, who appoints Nicholas as his personal physician and puts him in charge of modernizing Uganda’s health care system.  Keep in mind that once in office, the real President Amin ousted all non-Ugandans from his country.

Kerry WashingtonNeedless to say, Nicholas meets and “falls in love” with one of President Amin’s wives “Kay” (played by Kerry Washington) and impregnates her.  She begs him to abort the fetus and he reluctantly agrees.

He is called away the day he is suppose to perform the abortion, resulting in President Amin finding out about her infidelity and dismembering her, laying her remains on an autopsy table.

Nicholas is furious and decides to kill President Amin with poison and end his murderous reign.  One of President Amin’s soldiers discovers Nicholas’ intentions and tortures him, leaving him lying on the floor to die.

Here comes Nicholas’ medical colleague, Dr. Junju (played by David Oyelowo) to the rescue, sacrificing his own life to save that of a White man and the movie ends with Nicholas flying off into the sunset.

Poster3This movie is a typical rendition of the White races fears, as well as their lust for Black African women anywhere in the Diaspora.  It also depicts how Black Africans throughout the Diaspora will give up their own lives to save the life of one White man.

OscarMo’Nique starred in the 2009 movie “Precious” where she played the role of Mary Lee Johnston, the abusive mother of her daughter “Claireece Precious Jones,” which was played by Gabourey Sidibe.

Family Pic“Sixteen year old “Precious” has one son, named “Mongo” which is short for “Mongoloid” (aka-Downs Syndrome) who is living with her maternal grandmother, but Mary is still claiming that he is living with her in order to cheat the Welfare Dept.

Precious is again raped and impregnated by her stepfather and continues to suffer the physical and emotional abuse from her mother.  After the birth of her second child, everything comes out and the movie ends with “Precious” walking down a New York street with both of her children.  The scriptwriter does not tell you where they will live, nor how their lives turn out.

Honoring Nana HattieIn November 2009, Sister Mo’Nique said, “I own the rights to Hattie McDaniel‘s life story, and I can’t wait to tell that story, because that woman was absolutely amazing. She had to stand up to the adversity of black and white [society] at a time when we really weren’t accepted.  Mr. Lee Daniels is going to direct it, of course, and I’m going to be Miss Hattie McDaniel.  I really hope I can do that woman justice.”

I have not seen this movie, therefore, I don’t have anything to add.

OscarSister Octavia Spencer starred in the 2011 film, “The Help.”  Her character was a maid by the name of “Minnie Jackson.”  This was the third film to feature Black African American nominees for both Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress.

PosterThis is not your typical movie about Black African American Mississippi “Maids.”  These Sisters have a lot of pride and although ahead of their time (movie wise) they followed the lyrics of Baba James Brown and get got somePayback.”

LupitaIn 2013, Sister Lupita Nyong’o became the first Black African (Kenyan) actress to be nominated, the first Black African to win in any category and the second Black African actress to win for a debut performance.

12 Years A SlaveShe achieved these history-making feats in her debut film, “12 Years a Slave,” an adaptation of the 1853 Slave Narrative of Solomon Northup who was born free, kidnapped and sold into slavery in 1841, where he suffered the degradation and brutality of American slavery.

SoapSister Lupita’s character “Patsey” brought tears to my eyes as I watched the beating she received for slipping off to another plantation to obtain a piece of soap to cleanse herself of the filth of being raped and ravaged by the plantation owner Edwin Epps.

BeatingThe following is taken from Wikipedia and I strongly encourage you to go to the link and listen to Sister Lupita’s heart-rendering speech: “Nyong’o resides in Brooklyn.[60] She is fluent in Spanish, Luo, English, and Swahili.[20] On February 27, 2014, at the Essence Black Women In Hollywood luncheon in Beverly Hills, she gave a speech on the beauty of black women and talked about the insecurities she had as a teenager. She said her views changed when she saw South Sudanese supermodel Alek Wek become successful.[61] She mentioned receiving the following letter from a girl she had inspired in turn: “I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.” — Lupita Nyong’o quoting a letter written to her by an unidentified little girl from Africa[62]

OscarBrother Denzel Washington was the second Black African American male to receive an Oscar for “Best Actor” in 2001 for the movie “Training Day,” which at the time, I regarded as the worst movie I ever seen him in.  I thought his role in “Flight” was the worst ever because of the message at the end, where he is sitting in prison saying, “Being here is the best thing that ever happened to me.”

Training DayThe movie is about a day in the life of two LAPD detectives.  Brother Denzel’s role as “Alonzo Harris” a corrupt drug-using LAPD narcotics Detective assigned to train a White American rookie detective “Jake Hoyt” played by Ethan Hawke.  At the end of the movie, “Alonzo” is murdered and “Jake” walks into the sunset, the consummate hero.

Denzel and HalleAnother Oscar record was broken the same time Brother Denzel won his, when Sister Halle Berry  became only the second Black African American female to win an Oscar, making this the first time two Black African Americans won in leading roles the same year.

OscarSister Halle Berry played “Leticia Musgrove” in “Monster’s Ball, along with Billy Bob Thornton (Hank) as the leading actor.  The plot of this movie is that Leticia’s husband Lawrence (Sean Comb) is on death row in Georgia awaiting eminent execution.

SonAfter the execution of Leticia’s husband Lawrence, their son Tyrell (Coronji Calhoun), who Leticia has been physically and mentally abusing for being obese is murdered by a hit and run driver.  While still on the side of the road, Hank arrives and with hesitation decides to take them to the hospital where Tyrell dies.  (Note: Both Black African American male characters are killed in this film.)

Ho DownLeticia and Hank eventually gets drunk and they engage in explicit sex scenes, resulting in the two of them shacking-up and sitting on the back porch eating ice cream.

There were absolutely no culturally redeeming or educational benefits in this movie.  What it portrayed at the unconscious level was that a White American man can be a devout racist and directly involved in the execution of a Black African American man and his Black African American wife will give herself to his executioner.

As the saying goes for White American males, “You’re not a man until you’ve had sex with a Black girl.”

Angela BassettWhen asked why she turned down the role of “Leticia Musgrove,” Sister Angela Bassett  told Newsweek, I wasn’t going to be a prostitute on film, I couldn’t do that because it’s such a stereotype about black women and sexuality.”

To date, there has only been twelve (thirteen if you count Brother Denzel winning twice) Black African American recipients and one Honorary recipient of White America’s coveted Oscar.  Every year, Black African Americans are disappointed at the scarcity of Black African Americans winners and every year it is the “same-old-same-o.”

What is even worse, none of these thirteen movies (with the exception of “Ray”) had and a socially positive impact on the Black Africans in general or Black African Americans in particular.  In fact, with the exception of “Ray,”all of them depicted Black Africans throughout the Diaspora in a subservient, docile, sadistic, animalistic and criminal manner.

Control ThinkingThe Academy of Motion Pictures do not have to do anything differently because they know that we are going to flock to the box offices by the millions to watch White actors and actresses perform in predominantly all White casts and complain about the lack of Black African American representation.

Chris RockMy definition of “STUPIDITY” is doing the exact same thing over-and-over and expecting a totally different outcome!  If Black African Americans want anything to change, we must become the change that we want to see happen.

Garvey 12When we begin flocking to “OUR” theaters to see socially redeeming movies created at “OUR” studios, directed by “OUR” directors, financed by “OUR” investors and bankers, and performed by “OUR” actors and actresses, what White Hollywood do for White American actors and actresses will be of no consequence to us.

Until then, be of good cheer Black African America, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), promise” to become more diversified in their nominations by 2020.

“I WANT A GOD FEARING MAN ”

Mama HarrietI had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.”  Mother Harriet Tubman

Mary McCloud BethuneThe True worth of a race must be measured by the character of its womanhood.”  Mother Mary McCloud Bethune

Children“We do not realize that the massive deaths of Black males constitute the genocide of Black people (as it takes Black males to make Black babies and ensure future Black generations).” ― Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors

1 VillageFrom now on, I am dedicating all of my posts to Black African American females because a race can rise no higher than its’ women.

As in all of my posts, UNDERLINED WORDS are links.

Willie 2Although evidence abound that “Willie Lynch’s” letter is fictitious, just like the Bible (Gal 4:24), it is indeed a thought-provoking allegory.

Whether “true” or “false,” beginning in the 1960s, the Willie Lynch Manifesto has been in full force against Black Africans throughout the Diaspora, especially Black African Americans.

COINTELPRO 1The lynchpin  to the successful implementation of this re-enslavement manifesto has been to divide and conquer as America did to Black African Americans with COINTELPRO, beginning in the 1960s.  Under the Willie Lynch manifesto, the primary target has always been Black African American females.

Wrong CrossDuring slavery, Black African female slaves were powerless because of the physical and mental castration of Black African male slaves.  She could not marry or develop any meaningful relationships with Black African males therefore; she had to fend for herself and her children (if allowed to keep them).  The goal was the destruction of Black African  families.

JesusAfter destroying her positive image of a Black African male protector, the slave owners replaced him with a fictitious White male protector named Jesus.  By accepting Jesus as her new protector, Black African female slaves were programmed to put all of their trust and hope in Jesus’ hands, with the understanding that they would receive their true rewards in Heaven when they died.

Until death, these gullible and ignorant Black African female slaves were to trust their enslavers (Masters) to meet their every need, which included physical, mental, and yes, sexual needs.

HooverIn 1965, the height of the third Black African American renaissance, (the Reconstruction Era 1863 – 1877 was the first, followed by the Harlem Renaissance spanning the 1920s), AKA, “The Civil Rights Era,” (1954-1968) was at its zenith.

MLK AssassinationThe Civil Rights Era abruptly ended with the assassination of Baba Martin Luther King, Jr. at the hands of our White American governmental leaders.

.Moynihan Truth President Lyndon B. Johnson commissioned Senator Patrick Moynihan to devise a new Slave Manifesto, which he designed to destroy the Black African American family structure, by forcing Black African American fathers out of their homes.  Our females and mothers were again, left to fend for themselves.

Chris RockAs a Black African American who is single, many Black African American females say to me, “I want a GOD fearing man.”  When I ask what does that mean, they say, “A man who loves the Lord and who puts GOD first in their lives.   A man who belongs to a church and attends regularly and if he does not currently belong to a church, he is willing to join mine.”

Processionary Caterpillar 2In response, I typically will tell them of my knowledge of religion, having read the Bible (KJV) six (6) consecutive times from cover-to-cover and most importantly the fact that I am not a follower like processionary caterpillars.

MachiavelliTherefore, I would be willing to get involved again in the church with the understanding that I am not a “pew/bench warmer.”  For me to become involved in church again, my goal would be to become a Preacher and ultimately a Pastor.

Preachers WivesTo a woman, they are adamantly opposed to my going back into the pulpit as a Preacher/Pastor.  Most will say they do not want to become a Pastor’s wife because they know how desperate women in the congregation throw themselves at Pastors.

Bishop EddieWhat they are really telling me is, “I already have a Pastor who is the spiritual head of my life and I don’t need another one because I can’t serve two masters.

I just want you to come to church with me and sit next to me during service, unless I am in the choir, ushering or performing some other duty that Pastor might need me to do.”  If I agreed to go along with this, then we could become as “freaky” as we wanted, at least, she could.

For instance, what do you think would happen if during the act of sexual intercourse, I would yell out, “Oh Mary, Oh Mary” when her name might be Brenda?

Chicken NeckYou got it, if I am on top, she would immediately find the strength to throw me out of the bed, put her hands on her hips, engage her “chicken neck” and begin to spout a diatribe, calling me everything except the “child of GOD.”

She would then gain support from all of her female friends once she told them and I am sure she already has the support of most of my female readers.

JesusLet me put everything in perspective for you by asking my female readers a question.  How many of you while having sex, have yelled out, “Oh Jesus, Oh Jesus?”

Virgin MaryWhy is it that you can yell the name of Jesus and I cannot yell Mary, his mother’s name during the height of my sexual passion?  Hmmm!

Cognitive DissonanceI often wonder how women Preachers and Pastors cope with their  cognitive dissonance about the Bible admonishing them not to speak in the church.  Especially when they are told in 1Cor: 14:34 – 35  34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law.

35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

Kids Speaking in TonguesI volunteered at an “Inner City” school a few years ago and a 5th grade female student said to me in class, for all to hear, “Mr. Smith, my mommy wants me to learn to speak in tongues.”  Of course, I simply ignored her without responding and continued with my lessons.

When we met, two days later, her girlfriend said, “Mr. Smith, _______ can speak in tongues; go ahead and show him.”  This child of about eleven years old began babbling some gibberish, which she believed was “speaking in tongues.”

Speaking in Tongues BibleThe average Christian is clueless about what it means to “speak in tongues.” “Speaking in tongues” is when you walk into a room where there are, let’s say, twenty other people already there and everyone of them speak and understand a different language/tongue.  You begin speaking and each one of them hear, and understand you in their native language/tongue, yet, you do not speak any of their languages/tongues.

The miracle is that you only speak your language/tongue and each of the twenty only speaks their language/tongue, yet they hear and understand what you are saying in their native language/tongue.

2 or 3Furthermore, the Bible says in 1Cor 14:27-28: 27 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.

28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.

Slave GirlHere again, Willie Lynch’s manifesto is to target Black African female children in general and Black African American female children in particular because America sets the tempo for the rest of the world to follow.  By the time these girls grow into adulthood, they have become totally Brainwashed into embracing the delusion of Christianity.

Juanita BynumShe in turn will also teach her daughters how to “speak in tongues.”  Since any woman can get her man (repeat, her man) to do anything she wants him to do, he too will learn to “speak in tongues.”

Mass SuicideI am extremely knowledgeable in hypnosis.  Furthermore, when I began college in California in 1976, this was at the height of American “Cults and I learned how to recognize “Cults” and deprogramCult” members.

Praise DanceToday’s Black African American churches employ mass hypnosis through the form of their “praise teams and musical bands.”  Members of these “praise teams” are typically dressed in flowing garments and they wave flowing banners/streamers, along with a lot of movement and trance-inducing music.

Women in ChurchWhen they finish and “Pastor” begins, many of the female congregants are on their feet, distraught with emotional pain and crying uncontrollably.  This is exactly what “Pastor” wants because once you become overwhelmed with emotion, all of your logic and reason shuts down, and you become easy “prey.”

The Black ChurchYou must read Sister Deborrah Cooper’s liberating book, “The Black Church Where Women Pray and Men Prey.”

Numerous Black African American women have asked me to explain to their satisfaction why I call Preachers and PastorsPimps.”

Ice Berg SlimGrowing up in the slums of North Philadelphia I saw many Pimps and knew exactly how they earned their living.  In fact, I read most, if not all of “Iceberg Slim’s” books and at one time, I even fantasized about becoming a Pimp.

Bishop Don Juan1Back in the day, I’d look on the street corners and see Pimps wearing flashy clothes and jewelry, had processed hair, fancy cars and exotic women who gave them plenty of their hard-earned money.

Cash EddieToday, I go into many churches and look in the pulpits to see men wearing flashy clothes and jewelry, processed hair, driving fancy cars and have a lot of exotic women at their beck and call giving them their hard-earned money and we call them Pastor.

Single Black WomenThere are more single Black African American women in church than there are men, yet most of their Pastors are men.  The Pastor constantly admonishes his congregation (mostly women) to bring visitors to church.

Pastorial AnniversaryHowever, he will admonish them to seek out only “God fearing men,” by telling them that they must not be, “unequally yoked.”

FaithI recently heard a White American female character in a movie say, “I know you people are religious, because Black people loves themselves some religion.

MisEducation“In the church however, the Negro has had sufficient freedom to develop this institution in his own way; but he has failed to do so.  His religion is merely a loan from the whites who have enslaved and segregated the Negroes; and the organization, though largely an independent Negro Institution, is dominated by the thought of the oppressors of the race.  The “educated” Negro minister is so trained as to drift away from the masses and the illiterate preachers into whose hands the people inevitably fall are unable to develop a doctrine and procedure of their own.  The dominant thought is to make use of the dogma of the whites as means to an end.  Whether the system is what it should be or not, it serves a purpose.

Dr Woodson ThinkIn chameleon-like fashion, the Negro has taken up almost everything religious which has come along instead of thinking for himself. Baba Carter G. Woodson, The Mis-Education of the Negro

100_2844I will remain single and alone before I become a “GOD fearing man.”

1 VillageFrom now on, I am dedicating all of my posts to Black African American females because a race can rise no higher than its’ women.

As in all of my posts, UNDERLINED WORDS are links.

The LieAlthough yesterday was “Valentine’s Day,” I chose not to post this article until today because my mind was focused on my next article.

I can vividly recall my being programmed/indoctrinated into celebrating “Valentine” in the first grade.  My White American female teacher had her Black African American students drawing pictures of her perceptions of hearts and cutting them out and hanging them on the walls.

We were also programmed/indoctrinated to ask our parents to buy bags of “Valentine” cards and exchange them with our opposite sex peers and asking, “Will you be my Valentine?”  As I grew older, it became the norm that at least two people in my life (my mother and my girlfriend) would always get a “Valentine” and a minimum of three gifts – a card, chocolate candy and flowers.

Ester HowlandEster A. Howland, a White American female entrepreneur received a Valentine card and realized she could make a fortune by selling them in her father’s bookstore.  By the 1850s, she had cornered the American market.

Esther_Howland_Valentine_card,__Affection__ca__1870sToday, Valentine’s Day is a “cash cow,” second only to Christmas in the number of cards, flowers, candy and jewelry sold.  In fact, 25% of all Greeting Cards sold in America are for Valentine’s Day.

200px-Gentlemen_Prefer_Blondes_Movie_Trailer_Screenshot_(36)During the 1980s, the diamond industry came on board and declared; “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,” and foolish men failed to hear the real message.  If the “diamond” is your girl’s best friend, what were you, “her second best friend?”

Last year, Valentine’s Day candy sales ranked #1, and 13 billion dollars were spent in America on this pagan/religious ritual, averaging about $116. 00 per consumer.  Be mindful, this is just the average, because many of you go overboard in your spending.

BalloonsI went to the mall this past week to observe hundreds of males frantically going from one jewelry and fragrance counter to another buying gifts for their significant others.  I stopped off at another store and a Black African American female was buying 24 “Valentine ballons” and when I asked her why so many, she said, “These are for my second grade students,” and I chuckled inwardly realizing that the “heartbeat” still goes on.

Cupid 3Although we call it, “Saint Valentine’s Day,” very few celebrants or participants have any idea or knowledge about the origin of this pagan/religious ritual, which dates back to antiquity.  Neither do they know they are actually celebrating two fictitious individuals – Saint Valentine, and Cupid.

AphroditeJust like many other things created by the Romans, Cupid is just another pagan creation of theirs.  Supposedly, Cupid was seeking someone to pierce with his arrow and he accidentally pierced himself.

PsycheHe then saw Psyche and fell madly in love with her.  Unfortunately, for Psyche her new mother-in-law, Aphrodite was extremely jealous, as well as was Psyche’s sisters.

Because Cupid was a god, he told Psyche never to look at him.  Consequently, he would only creep around to see her during the nighttime, and he would be gone before sunrise.  However, Cupid would lavish Psyche with beautiful gifts and jewelry. (Sound familiar, ladies?)

Finally, with much meddling, Psyche’s sisters persuaded her to look at Cupid, telling her that he does not want her to see how grotesque and ugly he was.  Her own curiosity finally got the best of her, so Psyche lit a candle and held it over Cupid while he was asleep.

feast of LupercaliaAs far back as 44 BCE (“Before the Common Era”), pagans celebrated a fertility and health ritual known as “The feast of Lupercalia,” from February 13th through 15th.

Initially, the emphasis was on the shepherds and it was supposed to make their cows and sheep healthier and fertile.  During the Lupercalia festival, priests sacrificed goats and dogs because these animals were, thought to have robust sexual prowess.

feast of LupercaliaAfter the sacrifices, the celebrants consumed copious amounts of food and wine, then, men wrapped their naked bodies in the goatskins and streaked through the city hitting women (Today, we call it – “Being hit on“) in hopes that the pregnant would deliver and the barren would become pregnant.

Key PartyWomen placed their names in a bowl to be drawn by the men. (We now call them “Key Parties.”  Those selected were paired together for the duration of the festival.  If they liked each other afterwards, they would marry; if not, they would go their separate ways.  This was the first formalized “swinging party” in recorded history.

Romulus and Remus2Throughout their conquests, the Romans incorporated the “feast of lupercalia” into their rituals as the celebration of “Lupa,” the female wolf who allegedly nursed both Romulus and Remus (founders of Rome) back to health.

St Galasio IAround 496 AD, Pope Gelasius banned this pagan ritual, claiming it was making a mockery out of Christianity.  However, he felt that if you can not beat them, rename them, so the ritual continued under another name.

Men, when you need to blame someone for having to spend money for flowers, candy, cards and diamonds, remember Pope Gelasius.

If it were not for him, you would still be able to eat, drink, get nude and run around the city “hitting on” women without having to spend money on a one-day event or making a permanent commitment to the women you spent those few days with.

St Valentine (2)As we know, Christians cannot denounce a holiday, without replacing it with one of their own creation; so Pope Gelasius declared February 14th as, St. Valentine’s Day, although he was not sure which St. Valentine he was actually celebrating, because there were several.

ClaudiusAllegedly, there was a St. Valentine, who was beheaded in the third century because he disobeyed Emperor Claudiusedict, declaring it illegal for any of his soldiers to marry.

Emperor Claudius reasoned that an unmarried soldier was more loyal and a better fighter because he had nothing to lose.  There are several other fictitious accounts of other St. Valentines, who also met their untimely deaths in the name of L-O-V-E.

Geoffrey_Chaucer_(17th_century)Geoffrey Chaucer is credited with our still celebrating Valentine’s Day when he wrote “Parliament of Foules” in 1382 as an anniversary gift to King Richard ll of England and Anne of Bohemia.  Allegedly, this was the first Valentine love poem.

Today, the Catholic Church is still clueless about which St. Valentine they are celebrating, so, in 1969, Pope Paul VI removed St. Valentine from the church’s official Calendar of Saints, so it is now a purely commercial celebration.

I Won't RestMama Francis Cress Welsing wrote in: The Isis Paper ;”The most important thing about valentine’s day in the white supremacy culture is when they give out candy.  The white female like the white male to give her chocolate candy.

As black females, we follow white females and we want some chocolate candy too, without realizing that we already have chocolate candy.  In the framework of the white supremacy culture, the white female describes her ideal man as (chocolate is described as dark and erotic) tall, dark and handsome.”

200px-Gentlemen_Prefer_Blondes_Movie_Trailer_Screenshot_(36)During the 1980s, the diamond industry came on board and declared; “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,” and foolish men failed to hear the real message.

If the “diamond” is your girl’s best friend, what were you, “her second best friend?”

Bohemian GroveHowever, I never could understand the depiction of Cupid as a White male toddler with wings, a bow and arrows, until I realized White Romans were and still are (Roman Catholic Church) deeply engaged in pedophilia and the creation of ritualistic fantasies.  Today, super-rich and powerful men (only men) meet annually at the Bohemian Grove in Northern California, to fulfill their fantasies.

Now that you have the fictitious stories of both Valentine’s Day and Cupid, I have a question for my Christian readers.  How does GOD feel about your celebrating pagan rituals such as, Valentine’s Day?  For those who are interested, you will find the answer in Deuteronomy 12:29-32, KJV, which reads as follows:

“29 When the Lord thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land;

30 Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.

31 Thou shalt not do so unto the Lord thy God: for every abomination to the Lord, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.”

32 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.”

Of course, many Christians only use GOD as a spare tire.  If there is not a need for GOD, HE is stored in their closed trunks in order for them to be able to pursue Cupid and other pagan/religious rituals.  Yet, the moment they encounter a flat along life’s highway, they immediately go to their trunks and pull out their GOD for help and salvation.

School ChildBy the way, elementary school teachers receive the most Valentine cards, because they are the ones brainwashing their young students into adopting this pagan/religious ritual.

I ask that should you read anything in my posts that you can factually show me is false, please do so immediately.  Although I have made every effort to verify everything I write, I do make mistakes.

Common SenseOh, what a blessing it is that my people are so Gullible because they do not read, think or use Common Sense says the Pastors, Pimps and Politicians.

 

 

 

THE BIBLE IS THE BEST SELLING, LEAST READ BLACK HISTORY BOOK EVER!

Harriet Tubman2I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.” Mother Harriet Tubman

1 VillageFrom now on, I am dedicating all of my posts to Black African American females because a race can rise no higher than its’ women.

Mary McCloud BethuneThe True worth of a race must be measured by the character of its womanhood.Mother Mary McCloud Bethune

As in all of my posts, UNDERLINED WORDS are links.

Dr Woodson WorkersOur 90th year of celebrating Black History Week/Month has begun and that is our problem.  All we have been doing is celebrating (partying and bull-shucking) as opposed to working.  This is why we as a race are worse off today than we were during slavery.

Not Negro HxThe official celebration of Black History began in America in 1926 when Dr. Carter G. Woodson established “Black History Week.”

Dr Woodson CollegeSince then, every February we will dust off photos of “Black” scholars, athletes, entertainers, business moguls, politicians, and preachers, yet we ignore the Bible.  It has never been included as a recognized source of “Black History” because very few Black African Americans realize that the Bible is a fictionalized version of “Black History.”

To my knowledge, I will be among the few Black African Americans to remind you of ourBlack History” as written in the Bible.”

Control ThinkingThroughout this post, I will use the King James Version of the Bible as my primary source of Biblical references because it is recognized as the official version of the Bible, since it was first printed in 1611.

FYI – You can go to www.biblegateway.com to access every currently printed Bible in the world free of charge.

Chris RockFirst off, let me give you a few facts.  More Black Africans are Christians throughout the Diaspora than there are White people in the entire world.  There are more Black African American churches in America than White American churches.  More Black African Americans believe in the power of prayer than White Americans, and the preferred religion of most Black African Americans is Christianity.

Slave Ship JesusMore Black African Americans believe the Bible is divinely inspired, and written by the Hand of GOD than White Americans.  Most Black Africans throughout the Diaspora believe Jesus, the Son of GOD is a White man, because his mother “Mary” is  a White woman and according to the racist criteria for determining race, “You are the race of your mother,” because of the “one-drop rule.” Therefore, since White people can only produce White people,  Jesus’ Father, who is GOD must also be White.

Dr Woodson ThinkIt is said; “Knowledge is Power” and I beg to differ because knowledge alone is not power.  If it was, then why is it that there are more Black African Americans with college degrees today than ever, yet, Black African Americans are the most powerless race of people in this country and Black Africans throughout the Diaspora are the most powerless race on this planet?

Dr Woodson EducationNo my Brothers and Sisters, “Knowledge is not Power,” we only gain power from “Applied Knowledge.”

I encourage you to verify what I say in this post, and take it to your Pastors and teach it to them and demand that they begin teaching it to the rest of their “sheep” not just in the month of February, but every Sunday of every month of every year hence.

More people in the world own a Bible than any other published book.  In 2001, The Guinness Book of Records listed it as the best-selling Non-Fiction, which is not true because everything in the Bible is written as an “allegory,”(“the expression by means of symbolic fictional figures and actions of truths or generalizations about human existence” Webster) as stated in Galatians 4:22-24.

nwswk8When you want to know what the Bible says about “Black History,” start in Genesis (and confirm it with this Newsweek article) because both tell us that GOD created the “Garden of Eden in Africa.  Genesis 2:13 says, “And the name of the second river is Gihon; the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.”

Dr Woodson Modern EdHowever, White people writing later versions of the Bible attempted to “whitewash,” all references to Africa by removing the word “Ethiopia.”  The “New International Version” of the Bible says, “The name of the second river is the Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush.”

Nowhere on any world map can you find a country called “Cush.”  On the other hand, every map of the world has a country known as Ethiopia.  Consequently, if you cannot locate “Cush” on any world map, you can make the inhabitants of that land any color or race that you wish.

Adam and EveTherefore, nearly all pictures depicting the “Garden of Eden,” portray both Adam and Eve as having White skin and “stringy” hair.

Dr Woodson No Record However, placing Adam and Eve in a Garden, down river from Ethiopia, on the continent of Africa, mean they must have had dark skin and curly hair.  This is because “sunscreen” had not been created and White-skinned people would either become very dark, or perish from all forms of skin cancers (because they are allergic to the sun) if they lived in equatorial Africa.

Dr Woodson No HistoryIf the Bible is a written record of the creation of mankind and it places mankind’s origin on the continent of Africa, in a country known as Ethiopia, then, every human being on this planet, both past and present are descendants of the original race, known as Ethiopians.

According to Christian anthropologists and archeologists, the “Ark of The Covenant,” is located in Ethiopia, on the continent of Africa.  This is because the Christians believe GOD made HIS Covenant with the original people-the Ethiopians.

Ethiopia is the only country on the continent of Africa that the CREATOR has never allowed to be colonized by White people.

Italy invades 2Italy attempted to colonize Ethiopia in the battle of Adwa in 1896 and was soundly defeated.  Then Mussolini invaded Ethiopia in 1935, with the help of White America and the “League of Nations” and defeated the Ethiopian Army.  Italy’s victory was short-lived, because the allied armies defeated them during WWII, and Italy fled Ethiopia, and Ethiopia again, became a sovereign nation.

Curse of HamRacists White Americans will quickly throw up their book of fiction and refer you to Genesis 9:20-27 , and the “Curse of Ham” to justify enslaving Black Africans throughout the Diaspora.

Genesis 9:20-27 says: “20And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard: 21And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent. 22And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.

Drunken Noah23And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness.

24And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. 25And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. 26And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. 27God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

Why would a “Just GOD” punish Noah’s grandson Canaan and his progeny for what his father Ham did? Canaan never did anything to his grandfather it was his father Ham who supposedly did something to Noah.

Breaking ChainsBrothers and Sisters you must free your minds in order to free your bodies, because the KINGDOM OF GOD is within YOU!   Only then will you be able to THINK and come up with a COMMON SENSE answer to this question!

By the way, what was it that Ham actually did?  The story says Noah was naked and he got sloppy drunk and passed-out and Ham saw Noah’s nakedness.

How can GOD justify enslaving an entire group of people because of one drunk?  Since the Bible is nothing more than a book of fables, also known as “allegories” (Galatians 4:22-24), do not get bent out of shape over these passages, because they never happened.

When you hear White Americans justifying slavery because of the “Curse of Ham,” you must immediately correct them and show them in their book of fables that it was not Ham who was cursed it was his son (Noah’s grandson) Canaan and his descendants who GOD cursed.

MosesLeaving Noah, let us check out Moses.  In Exodus 4:6 & 7 GOD instructs Moses as follows: “6 And the LORD said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow.

7 And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put his hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and, behold, it was turned again as his other flesh.”

Right here is where I ask you to walk through the cemetery and find the grave of  Common SenseMoses asked GOD to give him a sign and the sign was, GOD turning Moses’ hand as white as snow, then he turned it back to his “normal color.”

If Moses was a White man, what would be the miracle of his hand turning white, and how could it be noticed?  The fact is that for a miracle to have occurred, Moses had to be a dark-skinned African, living in the African country of Egypt.

Black African Americans have been taught to hate Egypt and its’ Pharaoh because allegedly, Pharaoh was the one who enslaved the Christians.  By the way, contrary to what the White historians tell you, Egypt is not located in the “Middle East,” it is one of the 54 countries on the continent of Africa.

Anwar El SadatJust like White people has done in many other countries, they have “whitewashed” the original dark-skinned Egyptians by engaging in genocide and replacing them with light-skinned Arabs.  Look at how tall dark and handsome Egyptian President Anwar Sadat was.

KEMETIf this does not convince you, all you have to do is look at the Pyramid paintings and other ancient Egyptian artifacts and you will see they have brown and black skin.  We know the ancient Egyptians had white paint because they used it in painting their clothes, eyes, teeth and other objects.

SphinxYet, nowhere among their ancient paintings, carvings, etc. can you find white human images.  However, White archeologists attempted to “whitewashmany images , including the Sphinx by desecrating their noses.

Numbers 12:1 says, “And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.”

Numbers 12:9 & 10 says, “9And the anger of the Lord was kindled against them; and he departed.  10And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.”

Leper WomanWait a doggone minute!  When GOD turned Moses’ hand white, it became “leprous.”  Now GOD turned Moses’ sister Miriamleprous,” as white as snow.  Because Miriam’s skin was now white, which made her a “leper,” the 15th verse says she was expelled from among them for seven days, until her skin returned normal, which is to say, NOT WHITETherefore, they did not allow white-skinned people to be among them.  Hmmm!

According to 2 Kings 5:27, (read the entire story) GOD tells us exactly how HE created the White race, saying: “The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever.  And he went out from his presence a leper as white as snow.”

If I did not know any better, (wink-wink) this story describes the origins of the White race and depicts them as being a race of liars, deceivers, and “lepers.” Hmmm!

Daniel 7:9 says, “I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.”

209Pure wool is not straight; it is curly like the Afro of Black Africans throughout the Diaspora.  This is one of the ways I wore my “Hair like lambs’ wool” back in “The Day.”

According to The Song of Solomon 1:5, King Solomon was a “Black” man; “I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.”

King Solomon1 Kings 3:12-13 tells us that “BlackKing Solomon was the richest and wisest king in all the world, past, present and future.  It says, “12Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.  13And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.”

Revelations 1:14-15 describes Jesus as follows: “His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.”

bronze-feetAs you can see by this picture, brass is a brown color and if the feet are brown, it is only logical that the rest of the body will also be brown.

Black JesusWatch how the sitcom “Good Times” dealt with a “Black Jesus.”

JesusThe vast majority of Black African American and Black African churches throughout the Diaspora have stained glass windows as well as huge paintings behind their pulpits (and throughout the church and on fans) depicting Jesus as a White-skinned, blue-eyed, male with long stringy blond or brown hair.

These Pastors insist that all of their Black African sheep bow down and worship this White-skinned, blonde/brown hair, blue-eyed image of Jesus despite the Bible describing him as being brown-skinned.

All religions are manmade and prior to Emperor Constantine’s  Nicaea Council in 325 AD, religion as we understand it did not exist on the continent of Africa.  Our ancient Egyptian ancestors were a spiritual people and they worshipped Truth, Justice and Wisdom paying homage to all of Nature; consisting of the Sun, Moon, and Stars, as well as plants and animals.

Our Ancient Egyptian ancestors, civilized the entire world until the White Europeans began terrorizing the entire world with their manmade religion in the form of Jesus Christ.

BibleThe primary secret weapon that Whites have always used against brown-skinned indigenous people everywhere is the King James Version of their Bible, which 47 White men wrote between the years 1604-1611.

Wrong CrossThe White enslavers forbade Africans under penalty of severe beatings and even death to worship in the manner of their ancestors.  These White enslavers needed to maintain a total disconnect in the minds and hearts of the enslaved Africans from their motherland.

Slave PreacherTo do this, the White enslavers taught some of their most obedient and docile slaves how to preach and exactly what to preach to the masses, especially today, in 2016.

Dr Woodson Inferior SchoolsRemember, whomever controls the keys to Heaven have total control over all of the people who are trying to unlock Heaven’s door and get in.  Ashe!

Dr Woodson Miss EdThe following are excerpts from Dr. Carter G. Woodson’s book, “The Mis-Education of The Negro:”

Dr Woodson CollegeIf you teach the Negro that he has accomplished as much good as any other race he will aspire to equality and justice without regard to race.  Such an effort would upset the program of the oppressor in Africa and America.  Play up before the Negro, then, his crimes and shortcomings.  Let him learn to admire the Hebrew, the Greek, the Latin and the Teuton.  Lead the Negro to detest the man of African blood–to hate himself.” ― Carter G. Woodson, The Mis-Education of the Negro

The present system under the control of the whites trains the Negro to be white and at the same time convinces him of the impropriety or the impossibility of his becoming white… the Negros will have no outlet but to go down a blind alley, if the sort of education which they are now receiving is to enable them to find the way out of their present difficulties.” ― Carter G. Woodson

THE “educated Negroes” have the attitude of contempt toward their own people because in their own as well as in their mixed schools Negroes are taught to admire the Hebrew, the Greek, the Latin and the Teuton and to despise the African.  Of the hundreds of Negro high schools recently examined by an expert in the United States Bureau of Education only eighteen offer a course taking up the history of the Negro,” ― Carter G. Woodson, The Mis-Education of the Negro

Jesus SavesBy their peculiar “reasoning,” too, theologians have sanctioned most of the ills of the ages.  They justified the Inquisition, serfdom, and slavery.  Theologians of our time defend segregation and the annihilation of one race by the other.  They have drifted away from righteousness into an effort to make wrong seem to be right.” ― Carter G. Woodson, The Mis-Education of the Negro

It has been said that the Negroes do not connect morals with religion.  The historian would like to know what race or nation does such a thing.  Certainly the whites with whom the Negroes have come into contact have not done so.”Carter G. Woodson, The Mis-Education of the Negro

Modern SlaveryWhen a white man sees persons of his own race tending downward to a level of disgrace he does not rest until he works out some plan to lift such unfortunates to higher ground; but the Negro forgets the delinquents of his race and goes his way to feather his own nest, as he has done in leaving the masses in the popular churches.” ― Carter G. Woodson, The Mis-Education of the Negro

Black FaceIn the schools of business administration Negroes are trained exclusively in the psychology and economics of Wall Street and are, therefore, made to despise the opportunities to run ice wagons, push banana carts, and sell peanuts among their own people.  Foreigners, who have not studied economics but have studied Negroes, take up this business and grow rich.” ― Carter G. Woodson, The Mis-Education of the Negro

JESUS FOR SALE, BUYERS BEWARE!

1 VillageFrom now on, I am dedicating all of my posts to Black African American females because a race can rise no higher than its’ women.

As in all of my posts, UNDERLINED WORDS are links.

Stevie WonderI could have titled this post, “After you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you shall suffer, Superstition ain’t the way!”  Read the entire lyrics of Stevie Wonder’s song.

MachiavelliI have been reluctant to post this article for over a year because of the backlash I would receive.  I now realize that it is not about me, it is about the very survival of Black Africans throughout the Diaspora in general and Black African Americans in particular.

Newark PovertyThe first month of 2016 is about to end, and we as a people are still floundering at the bottom of the moral and socio-economic ladders.  There is no other race in America who has a lower status than Black African Americans and to verify this, go into any “slum” or “ghetto” in America and the overwhelming majority population living there is Black African Americans.

Title LoansYou will easily know when you have arrived into these slums when you see the four five primary landmarks located on the main drag of just about every block: Check Cashing/Title Loans, Fast Food/Convenience Stores, Liquor Stores and most importantly of all, Churches.

Baby DaddyThere are hundreds upon hundreds of churches throughout Black African American neighborhoods.  In fact, there are so many churches that there are two or three of them in the same blocks.

Pastorial AnniversaryWe have more churches, Preachers/Pastors than ever, yet as a race, we are morally bankrupt.  Of course, we can point fingers at other races and say they are morally deficient, which is true.

King Alfred PlanHowever, Black Africans in general and Black African Americans in particular are the only race in the world, targeted for genetic extinction.  I refer you to the “King Alfred Plan.

Sadly, we are willing participants in our own genetic extinction.

God and GovHow did we get here?   The answer is simple – “religion.”  People have an overwhelming desire to believe in something or someone, especially Black Africans throughout the Diaspora.

Emperor ConstantineOnce Emperor Constantine came on the scene, he stripped every Black African man, woman and child both physically and mentally of all knowledge of their Ancestral Spiritual System.

HieroglyphicsEmperor Constantine contrived to conquer the non-White world, so he plagiarized the Ancient Africans’ Spiritual System, and repackaged it with the aid of the First Council of Nicaea in 325 AD.

JesusThis Council gave birth to Jesus Christ and named their new religious system “Christianity”(although Jesus would not have been a Christian, he would have been a Jew), then sold it back to Black Africans throughout the Diaspora.

Suffice it to say, Christianity is a religious weapon used to enslave all non-White people throughout the world.  Emperor Constantine knew that once he controlled people’s religious beliefs he would then be able to control their lives.

King James IIn 1604, King James of England issued a mandate to 47 selected writers to produce his version of the Bible, which was completed in 1611 and published in 1612.

The operative word is “version,” which is defined by Merriam Webster as “story or description that is different in some way from another person’s story or description.”

Here again, the operative word is “story” which is defined by Merriam Webster as “a report about incidents or events.”

Who was there to write down GOD’s story of the Creation of the world as we know it?  Remember, according to all versions of the Bible, GOD did not make man until the sixth day.  If there were no one present at the time GOD created the Heavens and the Earth, how do we know what happened?  Ergo, we have various “versions” of the “story.”

Ancient Egypt During the conquest of Africa, White Europeans encountered a people with a magnificent spiritual system that dated back to the beginning of time.

European ScrambleWhen the White Europeans arrived on the continent of Africa, all they had were Bibles and guns.  The Black Africans had all of the land including all of the wealth their land produced.  Wealth such as diamonds, gold, food and everything necessary for the healthy survival of “God’s chosen people.”

Yes, contrary to what the Jews will tell you about being “GOD’s chosen people,” it is a lie.  All one has to do is to look at the continent GOD placed the Original People on and you will have to agree.

nwswk8According to the Bible, and White anthropologists worldwide, the Garden of Eden is located in Ethiopia where the human race began.  “And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.”

1619 SlavesAfter the arrival of the White Europeans, when their gun smoke cleared, they had all of the land and all of the wealth, leaving the Black Africans with only the European Bible and the most inhumane and barbaric form of slavery in the annals of history which is still going on today.

Wrong CrossApproximately seven years after King James released his “version” of the Bible, the first Africans arrived in Jamestown, Virginia (named in honor of King James) in 1619, and continued as victims of the most barbaric and inhumane form of slavery in recorded history, all in the name of Jesus Christ.

Jesus SavesLet us fast-forward to present day and we still see that Black Africans throughout the Diaspora are still enslaved by this White Christian religion.

The ancient root definition of religion according to the Online Etymology Dictionary states, “connects it with religare “to bind fast,” via notion of “place an obligation on,” or “bond between humans and gods.”

Money is EvilTherefore, the primary purpose of traditional religion is to bind us to the myth of a heaven or hell and make us financially obligated to pay for this mythical belief system.

Although I have read the KJV of the Bible six consecutive times from cover to cover, there are many who have not read the Bible once, including Preachers and Pastors telling me that I should not have read it, because the “spirit” did not lead me.

Slave Ship JesusNearly 32% of the world’s population are Christians, which is the largest religion in the world, and most are Black Africans scattered throughout the Diaspora.

Chris RockYet, I would venture to say that you may be hard-pressed to find 1 out of 100 Christians who have actually read the entire Bible from cover to cover.  I would even guess that you cannot go into “many” Black African American churches and find anyone (including Pastor) who have read the entire Bible.

Pope in AfricaIf you have not read the entire Bible, how do you know if Preachers, Pastors, Evangelists, or anyone for that matter is telling you the truth?   John 8:32 says, “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

Most days of the week, between the hours of 4:00 AM until 8:00 AM, you can turn your TV on to BET (Black Entertainment Television).  During these hours, according to BET you will hear “Religious news, and profiles of black ministers.”

Poke in EyeBET should have added a disclaimer saying, “These programs are for Entertainment purposes only,” because there is nothing said by these actors/entertainers when put in the context of the entire Bible is Biblically truthful.

However, the overwhelming majority of “actors/entertainers” being aired during these time slots are White American men and women.

Being the researcher that I am, I have taken the time to check out some of these “actors/entertainers,” (I encourage you to do the same with all Preachers/Pastors) and this is what I found.

MM 170 seedLets start with Dr. Mike Murdock who professes to be the author of dozens of books and hundreds of songs and according to him, he has the power to unleash GOD’s favor to you.

Under closer scrutiny, many of the books he claims to have written are about the length of my longest blog posts.  As for his hundreds of songs, if you were to find them, it would take you nearly ten (10) days of continuous listening to hear them all, if they existed.

Mike MurdockMike Murdock wants you to sow your seed of $58.00 per month because, according to him, there are 58 blessings he has found in the Bible.  He also said in his “31 Keys For Achieving The Uncommon Dream Within You, We’re asking the Holy Spirit for 300 partners this week who will set aside a seed of $300.00 for our outreaches.  I need your help, I want you to help me.”

In another BET show, Mike Murdock said, “Don’t sit there on the sofa watching me, go to the phone. Obey, (he says.) Go to the phone, quickly, quickly.  Delayed obedience is disobedience,” he says.

1000 seedDr. Todd Coontz – says, “Sow your $1,000.00 triple favor seed and expect a triple blessing.”

He also said, “I don’t know where this number came from, but God told me to tell you to go to your phone right now and sow a seed of $273.00.  Do it now, don’t delay.  God is also going to birth an uncommon business idea when you let go of this seed.

In case you might be wondering, the $273.00 figure Coontz said GOD gave to him is the unit number to his condo in Charlotte, N. C. valued at more than $1 million dollars.  By the way, Coontz used to be Mike Murdock’s treasurerHmmm!

Miracle WaterPeter Popoff  and his “miracle spring water” says it all.  In 1986 he was exposed on Johnny Carson’s show as the fraud that he is.  That exposure revealed that he would have attendees fill out prayer requests and the most egregious ones were seated in prearranged seats.

Once the show began, Popoff’s wife would read the sufferer’s prayer request into an ear piece worn by Popoff and he would then claim that GOD Himself  told him about their infirmities.

Steve Martin portrayed Peter Popoff’s character in the 1992 movie “Leap of Faith.”

Popoff houseIn spite of all the negative press, thanks to BET, Popoff  is back bigger, better and richer as evidenced by this mansion his Black African American sheep bought him.

8 StepsCreflo Dollar is the founder and Senior Pastor of World Changers Church International (WCCI) in College Park, Georgia, claiming 30,000 members and World Changers Church-New York, which claims over 6,000 worshippers each week.

JetIf you recall, Pastor Dollar is in need of a $65 million dollar jet so that he can reach out and put the touch on millions of Gullible Christians.  Pastor Dollar ardently believe in congregants paying their tithes.  In fact, he is heard saying that if he had his way, he would dig a ditch and shoot all non-tithers and bury them behind the church.

DollarYou can also view Pastor Dollar having a grand time wading through money.

HomeBy the way, Creflo has a net worth in excess of $27 million dollars, while the average household income in his church’s neighborhood is about $30,000.00 per year.

Eddie Long King of JewsBishop Eddie Long was crowned a Jewish King immediately after being accused of molesting male members of his church.

Cash EddieYou can later see him receiving a large cache of money from a female as he says, “Thanks Baby Girl.”  He also said, “I couldn’t pay for that.  Tell somebody thats just first fruit.  That might be her day today, but my day is coming, my day is coming.”

Bishop Don Juan1Growing up in Philadelphia, I used to see men with “processed hair,” flashy clothes and jewelry, expensive cars and flashy women and we called them “Pimps.”  Today I can go into many churches and see the same type of men and YOU call them “Pastor.”

Some are mad with BET for allowing these religious Pimps to hustle their infomercials, yet I am not one of them.  The fact that they can afford to pay BET for airtime, means there are more than enough Black African Americans (mostly females) sending them money.

Energizer_BunnyLike the “Energizer Bunny,” I can go on and on and on, yet what would be the point?  If you don’t realize by now that “most Televangelist, Pastors and Preachers are pimping you in the name of The Lord, there is nothing more I can tell you!

Church CarsJust remember this, Matthew 10:8 says, “Freely ye have received, freely ye give,” therefore why should you be giving money to these Preachers/Pastors/Pimps?  What does “freely” mean to you?

Bishop Don JuanWhoever said “Pimping wasn’t easy,” should ask Bishop Don Juan!

I will close this article, by showing you the dangers of joining religious cults.

ReaganMonday is the thirty-third National Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, which President Ronald Reagan signed into law on November 2, 1983.

goines_f1 This past Thursday morning I had breakfast with several members of “The Progressive Religious Coalition of Augusta” and their keynote speaker, Rev. Veronica Goines ,(the first Black African American female to have this honor) for their “9th Annual Interfaith Service of Celebration” honoring Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Two things struck me as peculiar.  First, growing up Baptist, before every meal, a blessing was said. Yet, at this table of Clergy, no one said a blessing before we began eating.

The second thing, which was most poignant of all, there were two very prominent Black African American Baptist Pastors seated less than ten feet from us, yet, I was the only one at our table of “The Progressive Religions Coalition of Augusta” who recognized them, nor did it appear that the Black African American clergy recognize  anyone at our table.

Later that evening I attended the program, which was wonderful.  The children of the “Davidson Chorale” gave a masterful performance as did “Trio Intermezzo.”

Davidson High School consistently ranks among the top high schools academically in the nation in one of the academically worst school districts (Richmond County )in the nation.  This is a future article I will write.

Rev Veronica GoinesRev. Goines gave a soul-stirring sermon on “Why Dr. King Still Matters.”  I had to silently chuckle because, this was one of the rare times that I heard a Black African American Pastor preach, without a lot of yelling and screaming, resulting in he/she going into an asthmatic tirade.

MASTERS Augusta, Georgia, the home of the “MASTERS” Golf Tournament(notice all letters in the sign are in caps and everyone in the picture appear to be White) will have its annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. parade.

The parade is today, Saturday, January 16, 2016, and will occur in the heart of a predominantly Black African American neighborhood as opposed to having it downtown on Broad Street.

Hoochie GalsBy holding the parade in the heart of a predominantly Black African American neighborhood as opposed to downtown, assures that the overwhelming majority of attendees and participants will be Black African Americans, with a noticeable absence of a large presence of White Americans as well as Americans of other nationalities.

Baba King’s Dream was for the racial integration of AmericaHmmm!

LaneyThose in the parade will be tossing candy into the streets for our little Black African American children to rush out and pick up, which I am among a very tiny minority that find this degrading.

Yet, I still wonder how all of this benefits Black African Americans.  As I wrote in a previous post, “Black African Americans Have Become Processionary Caterpillars,” and this is one more example.

Growing up in Philadelphia, in 1967 I had an opportunity to go to a church two blocks from my home to hear Dr. King speak, and I chose not to go.  During that time in my life, Dr. King’s views were opposite mine, because I was no longer a Christian, nor was I non-violent.

The thought of allowing a White American to hit, kick, spit, throw objects on me or even curse me and my remaining non-violent was very absurd.  So no, I was never a supporter of Baba King during his lifetime, nor would I be a supporter of him if he were alive today and he maintained his belief in non-violent, passive resistance.

I posted an article on Baba King last year and I was glad of my research, because I learned more about Baba King than I ever knew.  I always suspected that Baba King did not have much support among Black African Americans and I was correct.  As late as 1968, Baba King was garnering at best, approximately 13% of support from Black African American churches.

Put another way, nearly 87% of Black African American churches and the majority of their congregations refused to support or follow Baba King during his lifetime.  However, their reasons were different from mine.

These Christian followers of Jesus Christ, allegedly a White man, were too AFRAID to follow Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a Black African American man into “Canaan!”

In spite of their religious convictions, and dogma, their fears were deeply rooted in the power of White American males and the total control they had over the bodies, minds and lives of Black African Americans.

The number of Black African American churches who are supportive of Baba King is not that much different today in 2016, although they may give lip service to supporting him.  The only difference is that their reason for not supporting his doctrine is not fear, but MONEY.

Too many of our churches have become ensnared by President George W. Bush’s FBI” Faith Based Initiatives which gives them “free” government money.  They dare not bite the hand that feeds them by protesting against America’s “New Jim Crow”, less they lose their place at the “FBI’s” money trough.

In my research, I learned that on February 4, 1968, Baba King gave his “Drum Major Instinct” speech, which I call, “His Eulogy Speech,” because he told us exactly what he wanted and did not want said during his funeral.  Did we listen?  Absolutely not!

LawsuitWhen Baba King preached his own eulogy, he said the following: “Every now and then I guess we all think realistically (Yes, sir) about that day when we will be victimized with what is life’s final common denominator—that something that we call death.  We all think about it.  And every now and then I think about my own death and I think about my own funeral.  And I don’t think of it in a morbid sense. And every now and then I ask myself, “What is it that I would want said?”  And I leave the word to you this morning.

If any of you are around when I have to meet my day, I don’t want a long funeral.  And if you get somebody to deliver the eulogy, tell them not to talk too long.  (Yes)  And every now and then I wonder what I want them to say.  Tell them not to mention that I have a Nobel Peace Prize—that isn’t important.  Tell them not to mention that I have three or four hundred other awards—that’s not important.  Tell them not to mention where I went to school.  (Yes)

I’d like somebody to mention that day that Martin Luther King, Jr., tried to give his life serving others. (Yes) I’d like for somebody to say that day that Martin Luther King, Jr., tried to love somebody.  I want you to say that day that I tried to be right on the war question.  (Amen)  I want you to be able to say that day that I did try to feed the hungry.  (Yes)  And I want you to be able to say that day that I did try in my life to clothe those who were naked.  (Yes)  I want you to say on that day that I did try in my life to visit those who were in prison.  (Lord)  I want you to say that I tried to love and serve humanity. (Yes)

Yes, if you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice.  (Amen)  Say that I was a drum major for peace.  (Yes)  I was a drum major for righteousness.  And all of the other shallow things will not matter.  (Yes)  I won’t have any money to leave behind.  I won’t have the fine and luxurious things of life to leave behind.  But I just want to leave a committed life behind.  (Amen) And that’s all I want to say.”

Instead of granting his last request, every year for the last 48 years, we speak about all of those things he asked us not to speak about.  We repeatedly talk about all of his awards, while singing that tired old song, “We Shall Overcome Some Day.”  We do not have a clue as to when that “Some Day” will be; nor what it is that “We Shall Overcome.”

Gang FuneralWhat do you suppose Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would say about the hundreds of weekly murders of Black African Americans by other Black African Americans?

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would say about Black African American males walking up and down our streets showing their behinds by “saggin,” (spell it backwards) or our Black African American females dressing like “hoochies” while wearing “skittles-colored hair?Skittles

What do you suppose Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would say about the high Black African American school dropout rate and the high prison incarceration rate?  What do you suppose Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would say about the morally and spiritually bankrupt status of Black African Americans today?  What do you suppose Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would say about the financial state of Black African Americans today?

During my research, I learned that I was wrong about Baba King.  From the first time I heard his name, I erroneously believed he was a contributing factor to the financial detriment of the Black African American race because I ignorantly believed he failed to stress the importance of economic growth and financial unity.

Last SpeechDuring Baba King’s last public speech on April 3, 1968, he said the following: “It’s all right to talk about “long white robes over yonder,” in all of its symbolism.  But ultimately people want some suits and dresses and shoes to wear down here!  It’s all right to talk about “streets flowing with milk and honey,” but God has commanded us to be concerned about the slums down here, and his children who can’t eat three square meals a day.  It’s all right to talk about the new Jerusalem, but one day, God’s preacher must talk about the new New York, the new Atlanta, the new Philadelphia, the new Los Angeles, the new Memphis, Tennessee.  This is what we have to do.

We are poor.  Never stop and forget that collectively — that means all of us together — collectively we are richer than all the nations in the world, with the exception of nine.

We have an annual income of more than thirty billion dollars a year, which is more than all of the exports of the United States, and more than the national budget of Canada.

We just need to go around to these stores, and to these massive industries in our country, and say, “God sent us by here, to say to you that you’re not treating his children right.  And we’ve come by here to ask you to make the first item on your agenda fair treatment, where God’s children are concerned. Now, if you are not prepared to do that, we do have an agenda that we must follow.  And our agenda calls for withdrawing economic support from you.”

JJ and MLKAs Jesse Jackson has said, up to now, only the garbage men have been feeling pain; now we must kind of redistribute the pain.

But not only that, we’ve got to strengthen black institutions.  I call upon you to take your money out of the banks downtown and deposit your money in Tri-State Bank.  We want a “bank-in” movement in Memphis.”

Black Wall StDr. Martin King, Jr. went to Memphis, Tennessee on the last day of his life and preached the necessity of pooling our financial dollars (like we did in Tulsa, OK) and spending it among ourselves.  As he said, once pooled, our wealth is the equivalent of the tenth richest nation on this planet.

MLK and YoungAmbassador Andrew Young, his “Frat Brother” was sitting right there when he said it, yet, he and his other “Frat Brothers” did just the opposite of Baba King’s wishes and mandate.

Alpha and MLKInstead of heeding Baba King’s mandates by giving our dollar$ $ome $ense, we have lost our financial minds.

Shortly after his birthday became a federal holiday, his “Fraternity Brothers” (Alpha Phi Alpha, Fraternity Inc.) embarked on the most fiscally irresponsible task ever undertaken by Black African Americans.

D Man Made ThisFirst, the Alpha Phi Alpha leadership negotiated a $120,000,000.00 deal to build a memorial on the mall in Washington, D.C.  Before anything could be done, Baba King’s children insisted on being paid (and they were paid) $800,000.00 for the use of his words and image.

DramovSecond, Alpha Phi Alpha then insulted every Black African American architect in the country, as well as every Black African architect in the world and selected Boris Dramov , a White Bulgarian American who is the president of the Roma Design Group to design the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial.

Made in China2Third, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. insulted every Black African American sculptor and every Black African sculptor throughout the Diaspora, by going all the way to Communist China and selected China’s renowned sculptor Lei Yixin and he signed his name in his native language on the Martin Luther King, Jr. monument, for the world to see.

Go to the memorial’s website and figure out if you can read his name written in Chinese or if you can even pronounce his name.  Do you think in 50 years that your progeny will be able to read and pronounce his name?

Hoover What makes this even more insulting to the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is the fact that throughout his “Civil Rights” years, J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI slandered him, with the help of COINTELPRO, as being a “Communist Agitator.

Then Alpha Phi Alpha leadership inferred it “subliminally” by hiring a Communist Chinese sculptor to create the single greatest public tribute to Black African Americans in the world.

IreneDr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was so displeased with the wasted spending and hoopla in the guises of honoring him, as well as the never-ending violence, racism and poverty among his people, that he asked GOD to send Hurricane Irene up the East Coast, forcing the cancellation of the originally scheduled dedication on August 25, 2011.

If he could speak to our hearts today, I can Imagine Baba King saying to us, “Instead of squandering Black African American’s wealth by enriching those of other races and nationalities, Alpha Phi Alpha, Fraternity Inc. should have spent the $120,000,000.00 creating jobs for Black African Americans.

Instead of spending that money on a “feel good” block of stone, they should have went to every major American city with a street or thoroughfare named in my honor (in blighted neighborhoods) and built hotels in my honor.

Quilt ConferenceGod knows that we Black African Americans love to hold conferences and conventions on any topic, in other people’s facilities, why not build our own?”

Aristotle  When we teach our history, we must teach the entire history truthfully, come what may.  Whatever we teach about our history today, will become an indelible part of our history tomorrow.

WATCH NIGHT SERVICE FALLACY

Harriet Tubman2I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.”  Mother Harriet Tubman

1 VillageFrom now on, I am dedicating all of my posts to Black African American females because a race can rise no higher than its’ women.

As in all of my posts, UNDERLINED WORDS are links.

ImaniHabari Gani? (What’s the News?)  Tomorrow ends another Kwanzaa celebration and because we are a Spiritual people, it is prudent that we close with the seventh principle of the Nguzo Saba which, is ImaniFaith.”

ChangeSadly, very few Black African Americans will be participating in the closing celebration feast of Kwanzaa because most will be partying and bull-shucking, while the rest will be participating in traditional “Watch Night Services.”

Jesus SavesEverything that Black Africans throughout the Diaspora know about Religion and Christianity was taught to us by White Europeans who embarked on a worldwide quest to mentally, physically and spiritually enslave ALL Black Africans throughout the Diaspora.

JesusWe can convince ourselves of anything, even a lie if we repeat it often enough.  The biggest lie that Black African Americans embrace today is the lie that Jesus Christ is a real person that actually died for all of our sins.

NapoleonNapoleon said, “What is history but a fable agreed upon?” Consequently, White American historians have convinced the world that President Abraham (Honest Abe) Lincoln was and is the best president the Black African American race has ever had, surpassing both President John F. Kennedy and President Barack H. Obama.

Massa preacherBecause of this lie, Black African American Christians engage in ritualistic behaviors that are based solely on traditions passed down to us from slavery, and the meanings have been lost in the translations.  Watch Night Service (As in all of my posts, underlined words are links.) is one such ritualistic tradition.

25 DollarsIn the minds of many Black African American Christians, they go to church on New Year’s Eve for the express purpose of worshipping Jesus Christ at the close of one year and the start of another.

Join UsThe average Black African American Christian is clueless when it comes to the true history of “Watch Night Services.”  The history behind this religious ritual has absolutely nothing to do with Jesus or Christianity.

EmancipationAnother lie we blindly embrace is that President Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves.  It is true that President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1862, which was to go into effect at midnight on January 1, 1863.

Watch NightOn the night of December 31, 1862, many slaves in the Confederate States met in the slave quarters to sing and praise “Father Abraham Lincoln” for granting them their freedom.  The purpose of these gatherings was to “watch freedom” come upon their lives at the stroke of midnight, January 1, 1863; ergo, “Watch Night Service.”

Abes ProclamationAgain, many Black African Americans are ignorant about the reason for the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation.  The average Black African American, when asked, will tell you that President Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves when he issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which is false.

Emancipation ProclamationThe purpose of the Emancipation Proclamation was to create confusion and disruption among the Confederate forces.  The Emancipation Proclamation only granted freedom to those slaves residing in the Confederate States (except Texas) and not the slaves residing in the Union States.

Civil War MapFurthermore, President Abraham Lincoln did not have any jurisdiction over slaves residing in the Confederate States because these states had seceded from the United States, ergo, the Civil War.  Since “Father Abraham” did not have the authority to emancipate slaves in the Confederacy, in essence, the Emancipation Proclamation was a worthless document.

Kiss LincolnThe other piece of mythology regarding President Abraham Lincoln was that he was the “Great Emancipator.”  In actuality, President Lincoln was just as racist as the rest of his peers of his era.

Lincoln Negro PolicyThis is evidenced by his saying the following: “I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality.  And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.  I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.” –Fourth Debate with Stephen A. Douglas at Charleston, Illinois, September 18, 1858 (The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln edited by Roy P. Basler, Volume III, pp. 145-146.)

Lincoln FeetBecause White America made the decision to assign President Lincoln as Black African Americans’ Great White Savior, they built the Lincoln Memorial for us to forever bow down at his feet.  Ironically, the Lincoln Memorial was dedicated on May 30, 1922 to a segregated audience.

Whenever, Black African Americans reached a point where we thought that we could no longer endure American racism, we were instructed to take our troubles to the feet of our Great Emancipator and “leave them there.”  With singing and prayer, our burdens will become just a little bit lighter.

Marian Anderson In spite of her greatness, Mother Marian Anderson went to the feet of the “Great Emancipator” and performed her concert when the White American Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), who were also Christians, denied her permission to perform at Constitution Hall.

By the way, her concert took place on “Easter Sunday,” the holiest Christian holiday.

MLK and AbeBecause of White American racism, Baba Martin Luther King, Jr. led approximately 200,000 “Negroes” on “The March on Washington” in 1963 to the feet of this “Great Emancipator,” and delivered his “I Have A Dream” speech.

Poke in EyeToo many Black African American preachers and pastors are so stuck on traditions and rituals that they are clueless when it comes to the facts.  They would rather entertain their congregations with asthmatic tirades, shouting psychobabble, “speaking in tongues” and running up and down like the buffoons they are, than educate and enlighten them.

What is even worse is that their sheep attend these services faithfully, boasting about what a great sermon Pastor preached.  If asked what he/she preached on, many are unable to tell you because in actuality, they could not understand most of what he/she was saying, because it was all based on emotions, rather than factual knowledge.

Processionary Caterpillar 2Because of their quest to entertain their congregations, many Pastors have become “processionary caterpillars,” and are leading our people around in an endless circle.  They do not read and they are encouraging their congregations to read even less than they are.

Trump and PastorsIt is more important that their congregations purchase CDs of their sermons, (and Donald Trump’s book) which they have already heard than to pick up a history book on Black African Americans, which they have very little if any knowledge.

If they knew a modicum of Black African American history, they would readily see that participating in “Watch Night Services” is nothing more than a perpetuation of our own enslavement.

My Black is BeautifulPresident Abraham Lincoln never freed our ancestors and our addiction to the fictional Jesus will never wash us “whiter than snow,” because in the morning, our skin will still be “Black and Beautiful,” thank GOD ALMIGHTY!

I ask that should you read anything in my post that you can factually show me is false, please do so immediately.  Although I have made every effort to verify everything I write, I do make errors.

WHY WE MUST CELEBRATE KWANZAA!

Harriet Tubman2I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.”  Mother Harriet Tubman

Female WarriorsFrom now on, I am dedicating all of my posts to Black African American females because a race can rise no higher than its’ women.

As in all of my posts, UNDERLINED WORDS are links.

I published a Kwanzaa post on December 23, 2014 and during this past year, Black African Americans have nearly fallen off of the socio-economic ladder because we do not desire to know our history or make positive changes in our behaviors.

Stolen LegacyIn his book, “Stolen LegacyBaba George James describes how White Europeans in general and White Americans in particular has stolen most of our knowledge and hidden the rest in plain sight – books.

Bill CosbyIn 1968 Baba Bill Cosby narrated a documentary entitled, “Black History, Lost, Stolen or Strayed” where he highlighted how White Europeans and their progeny stole all of the knowledge and wisdom from ancient Africans, plagiarized and regurgitated it back to us as their wisdom.

Clinton in HarlemHillary Clinton stole Black Africans’ ancient phrase, “It Takes a Village” and she and her husband, Bill Clinton moved into Harlem and was greeted by Black African Americans with open arms, and gentrification followed.  Now the “Stop and Frisk” laws are in full force when many Black African Americans are seen in Harlem.

McCartney at ApolloWhite Americans now own the “Apollo Theater” and they attend in large numbers for concerts and other forms of entertainment.

White KidsTo further add insult to injury, some White Americans have stolen and are celebrating Kwanzaa as their own cultural holiday.

Read SomethingAll of this has happened only because as a race, Black African Americans do not read  and we no longer embrace our own cultural history.

If we don’t embrace and use our culture, then we are going to lose it!

7 PrinciplesHABARI GANI is a Swahili phrase, which mean, “What’s the news?”  We ask this question at the start of each of the seven days of Kwanzaa.

As in all of my posts, underlined words are links.

Nguzo Saba2HABARI GANI- What’s the news?  We must loudly proclaim that beginning today, we as a people will embrace the Nguzo Saba for the rest of our lives.  Before we can embrace the Nguzo Saba, we must proudly and totally embrace Kwanzaa.  In order to embrace Kwanzaa, we must know what it is and what it stands for.

African First FruitThe name Kwanzaa has its’ origin in the Swahili phrase, “matunda ya kwanza” meaning “first fruits.”  Traditionally, Black Africans spelled Kwanza with only six letters. When Baba Dr. Maulana Karenga and his group US introduced Kwanza to Black African Americans, there were seven children involved in the first celebration, so an extra “a” was added, which spelled Kwanzaa to allow each child to hold a letter.

Karenga1Baba Dr. Karenga stated the following, “From the beginning, the essential task of our organization US has been and remains to provide a philosophy, a set of principles and a program which inspire a personal and social practice that not only satisfies human need but transforms people in the process, making them self conscious agents of their own life and liberation. Such a transformative practice will, of necessity, also lead to the building of moral community and to the constant becoming of the best of what it means to be both African and human in the fullest sense.”

7 Principles2There are seven basic and two supplemental symbols used in Kwanzaa, all of which represent the values and traditions of ancient Black African culture prior to colonization by the White Europeans.

These symbols are summarized from the book, “Kwanzaa: A Celebration of Family, Community and Culture, Commemorative Edition, Maulana Karenga, 1998, Los Angeles: University of Sankore Press “and are as follows:

FarmerMazao (The Crops) These are symbolic of African harvest celebrations and of the rewards of productive and collective labor.

MkekaMkeka (The Mat) This is symbolic of our tradition and history and therefore, the foundation on which we build.

KinaraKinara (The Candle Holder) This is symbolic of our roots, our parent people — continental Africans.

MuhindiMuhindi (The Corn) This is symbolic of our children and our future, which they embody.

Mishumaa SabaMishumaa Saba (The Seven Candles) These are symbolic of the Nguzo Saba, the Seven Principles, the matrix and minimum set of values, which African people are urged to live by in order to rescue and reconstruct our lives in our own image and according to our own needs.

Kikombe cha UmojaKikombe cha Umoja (The Unity Cup) This is symbolic of the foundational principle and practice of unity, which makes all else possible.

Gifts1Zawadi (The Gifts) These are symbolic of the labor and love of parents and the commitments made and kept by the children.  The two supplemental symbols are:

Our FlagBendera (The Flag) The colors of the Kwanzaa flag are the colors of the Organization US, black, red and green; black for our people, red for our struggles, and green for the future and hope that comes from our struggles.

Garvey 16It is based on the colors given by the Honorable Marcus Garvey as national colors for African people throughout the Diaspora.

7 Principles3Nguzo Saba Poster – The foundation of Kwanzaa is the Nguzo Saba, which are the seven principles Kwanzaa is built on to reinforce our traditional concept of family, community and heritage.  The Seven Core Principles of the Nguzo Saba are as follows:

Umoja1UmojaBlack Africans in general and Black African Americans in particular must understand the necessity of Umoja-Unity.

Black African Americans come in all shades of brown; all heights and weights, as well as different educational and socio-economic levels.  To the surprise of many, we have different political affiliations.

DifferencesWe also have an array of religious beliefs.  We are Baptist, Methodist, Pentecostal, Seventh Day Adventists, Catholics, Muslims, Buddhists, Rastafarians and even Atheists, as well as those religions I have not mentioned.

1 VillageDespite all of our differences, the tie that binds us is that we are all Black Africans first and foremost; this is our commonality.  Because we all have Africa as our foundation, we all have a common goal as well as a common obligation.

Bar B QueOur ancestors fought a good fight against an insanely savage and oppressive people, so that we would be empowered to have a better fight for our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Kujichagulia1Kujichagulia – We must resume the ancient ways of educating ourselves and our children.

This means that we must take our children out of these White Christian propaganda schools and begin teaching them about our glorious past.

Educated Black WomanWe must first learn, then, teach our children that Black African history is the beginning of world history.  Before the Black Africans, there were no humans on this planet.

We must also rewrite the curriculum for America’s public schools because the current curriculum was developed to train our children to become perpetual servants for this White Supremacy system.

UjimaUjima – We must stop all of this senseless partying and bull-shucking and realize that it is long overdue for self-reliance.  Drugs, including alcohol and tobacco are designed by White Supremacists to keep us null and void; in addition to our becoming victims of America’s Criminal Injustice Complex.

Newark PovertyWe must realize that our neighborhoods are dirty, filthy and run-downed because we choose not to clean them up.  Poverty should not be synonymous with filth and trash.

Ujamaa1Ujamaa – We must start giving our dollar$ $ome $en$e.

TrillionsWe have over 1.1 trillion dollars in buying power and we don’t know what to do with it.  If we spent just 1% among ourselves, we would fund every program we need with this 100 billion dollars and still have enough money to help indigent White Americans, if we wanted to.

SpendingBlack African Americans spend 10% of our income on tobacco and 20 % on alcohol (made with sugar) with someone who enslaved hundreds of millions of our ancestors to grow these products to kill us and make them rich.  Alcohol and tobacco kills more people in the world than any other drugs combined.

Female BuyersBlack African women throughout the Diaspora (especially those in America) spends billions of dollars annually on hair products ,in order to have hair (stringy) that looks like our oppressors.

Malcolm XIf we are to survive as a race, we must stop enriching the lives of White Supremacists by not spending most of our money with them.

4 RentWe must recognize that all tenants are buying the homes they are living in because their rent money goes towards paying the mortgages for their landlords.

Big HouseFamilies must pool their money and buy large enough homes for several family members to live in; save their money, including tax refunds and begin purchasing additional homes and apartments.

During this economic time is the best time to do this because there is an abundance of foreclosed properties, which we can buy cheaply.

Nia1Nia – We must know why we are doing what we are doing and whether it is to our benefit or detriment.

Plan AA people without a plan, is a people who are planning to fail.  We must develop both short-term (3-5 years) and long-term goals.

We must also learn to play the games of both chess and monopoly and apply these same strategies to our lives.

  • In chess, we must know our next eight to ten moves and all of the variables in addition to knowing the exact same options that are available to our opponent.
  • In monopoly, we must begin buying all of the properties in the “ghetto” in order to thwart gentrification by the White Supremacist regime.

KuumbaKuumba

Music VideoWe must stop producing these racially detrimental songs and movies and begin creating racially uplifting songs and movies.

PyramidWe must remember that not only did we as a people build both America’s and the world’s great metropolis out of the wilderness, we as a people built the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Sphinx nearly 20, 000 years ago, while Europeans were still cave dwellers – So what can’t we do once we have UMOJA?

ImaniImani – We must learn the distinction between religion and spirituality.

Religion is from Latin, which is the word “re-ligere-meaning to tie, bind.

Wrong Cross Of course, the Latin language originated with the Roman Catholic Church, which cursed us with the Bible and sanctioned the insanely vicious enslavement of Black Africans and their progeny throughout the Diaspora.

Religion also teaches us that God is a foreign entity living outside of ourselves and for Black Africans throughout the Diaspora, this God is portrayed as a White man, and His mother is a White woman.

JCWhat intelligent race of people will allow White people to victimize, brutalize and even murder them?  Then fall down on their knees, prostrating themselves in front of an imaginary fantasy god, in the image of the same White man that has harmed them and pray not only for salvation for themselves from this White man, they will even pray for forgiveness for their oppressors?

Metu Neter1Spirituality teaches us that the Universal Spirit (Metu Neter) dwells within all of us and all we have to do is look within ourselves to find GOD in us.

The same Bible that is used to enslave, dominate and control us says in 1Cor 3:16 that our bodies are God’s temple, so it is foolish to go outside of ourselves looking for the GOD of the Universe who dwells within all of us.

It is important to note that Kwanzaa is not a religious holiday, nor does it have any religious overtones. In fact, prior to the start of Kwanzaa, all Christmas and Hanukah decorations must be removed from the place of celebration.  This is why Kwanzaa does not begin until the end of both of these traditional holidays.

After Xmas SaleAnother reason for the selection of December 26th, was to allow participants to take advantage of the after Christmas sales, which will give their dollar$ more buying power.

Gifts1Gifts are primarily given to children, on each of the seven nights of Kwanzaa.  Each child must receive a minimum of two gifts per night.  One gift must be Afro-centric, reinforcing our bond with our Motherland – Africa.  The second gift must be a book about our people and our struggles.

The purpose of books is the reinforcement of Ancient Black Africa’s constant quest for knowledge.

Habari GaniHABARI GANI: (What’s the news?The current news is that as a race, we Black African Americans have never been worse off than we are today.  As a race, we are at the top of the list comprising everything negative and at the bottom of the list of everything positive.

As a race, we have the highest rate of unemployment, poverty, incarceration, infant mortality and school dropout just to name a few.  I cannot even say high school dropouts because many of our children drop out before they get to high school.

Let us not forget that we also have the highest homicide (and other violent crimes) rate as well as the highest state sanctioned legal and illegal (execution by cops) executions in the nation, if not the world.

King Alfred PlanWorst of all, Black African Americans are the primary target for extermination by America’s government sanctioned White Supremacist system (Global 2000 , and The King Alfred Plan ) and we don’t even know it.

NWOBefore I go any further, allow me to explain who and what I mean by White Supremacists.  First, I am not referring to the KKK, Skinheads, Neo Nazis or any other White Racists hate groups.  These groups are mere puppets doing the bidding of The Unseen Hand of a small elite group of predominantly White men (although there are some White women) whose sole purpose is world domination.

These White Supremacists sit behind the scenes controlling all of the politicians, judges, banks, and corporations whose primary agenda is the subjugation and ultimate extermination of all non-White people throughout the world.

In the past, I used to become ticked off because of the constant airing of old and new movies and documentaries depicting how White Supremacists treated Black Africans throughout the Diaspora in general, and Black African Americans in particular.

12 Years A SlaveEvery time these movies and documentaries was shown in the media, for me, it was like snatching a scab off a festering emotional wound, and never allowing it to heal.

Then these White Supremacists would have the audacity to tell us as a race that we need to get over our past and move on.  They had the impudence to tell us that slavery has long been over and we (today’s White Supremacists) were not responsible for enslaving your people in the past.  In spite of the fact, that these modern-day White Supremacists are 100% responsible for today’s de-facto slavery.

JonestownAs foolish as I was, I used to drink this Kool-Aid (reference to Jim Jones) by agreeing with these White Supremacists.

That has changed because they now have the nerve to put out a manifesto on how I should react when (not “if,” because it is just a matter of time) I am stopped by their Gestapo styled police force.

They are not telling the cops how they MUST ACT when they stop me and other Black African Americans, because they say it is our responsibility to ensure that we do not upset the cops.

Riot CopsThese cops can use their Gestapo tactics to kick our doors in, throw flash and percussion grenades on our children ) while they are asleep, yet, we are instructed to not antagonize them, or defend ourselves in any way.

My eyes and ears are open and I now realize the necessity of constantly making and showing movies and documentaries depicting the past treatment of Black Africans throughout the Diaspora, as well as how we are still being treated by White Supremacists.

Miss BurningBy constantly showing these movies and documentaries, new generations of Black African Americans are seeing them for the first time.

The insanity of White Supremacy is that they believe they can keep showing us their insane hatred of Black Africans on TV and in the movies and we will just continue turning the other cheek and praying to their White Jesus for them to discontinue spitefully using and abusing us.

Habari GaniHABARI GANI(WHAT’S THE NEWS?)  We must loudly proclaim that we are declaring an end to our pain and suffering by embracing the reality that we are totally responsible for how these White Supremacist treat us.

Many of us who are elders have played “horsey” with our children and younger siblings.  We would get down on all fours and allow the younger ones to get on our backs and ride us like a horse.

We also know that once we grew tired of this game, all we had to do is tell the youngsters to get off our backs.  Should they choose not to get off, all we had to do was stand up.

The fact of the matter is that no one can ride your back while you are standing on your feet and not holding them on your back.

HorseyWe Black Africans throughout the Diaspora in general and especially those of us in America in particular must begin standing on our feet immediately and stop holding onto to these White Supremacists in expectation that they will continue providing crumbs for our needs.

My BookIt’s Still Time To Stop Blaming The White Man.  We must realize that we as a people have been begging and pleading with these White Supremacists for hundreds of years to treat us with human dignity and respect and for hundreds of years our pleas have fallen on insanely death ears.

DarwinWe Black African Americans must realize that the greatest threat to the total genetic extinction of the White race is all of us Black Africans throughout the DiasporaWhite Supremacists know and have known since the days of Charles Darwin that they are an endangered species on the brink of genetic annihilation.

White Supremacists know that their very survival as a people is totally dependent on their ability to genetically control and or exterminate those of us who are of Black African heritage – period.

Cradle Of CivilizationAll Black Africans throughout the Diaspora in general and every other race on this planet have a common origin.  Mother Africa is the place of origin for every man, woman and child on this big blue marble we call earth.

Claude McKayIt is long overdue for all living generations of Black African Americans to start doing for ourselves, which includes protecting ourselves from the planned genocide by White Supremacists.

KarengaBaba Dr. Maulana Karenga selected UMOJAUNITY as the first principle of the Nguzo Saba for specific reasons.

Before we can have KUJICHAGULIA (self-determination), we must first have UMOJA-UNITY!

Before we can have UJIMA (collective work and responsibility), we must first have UMOJA-UNITY!

Before we can have UJAMAA (cooperative economics), we must first have UMOJA-UNITY!

Before we can have NIA (purpose), we must first have UMOJA-UNITY!

Before we can have KUUMBA (creativity), we must first have UMOJA-UNITY!

Before we can have IMANI (faith), we must first have UMOJA-UNITY!

Please allow yourself a few minutes of your time to reflect on ways you can practice UMOJA-UNITY with our Black African American Brothers and Sisters.

BF MadnessBrenda: You know me, I’m always “SAD” during Xmas.  But I finished most of my Xmas shopping.  I fought that madness on “Black Friday” and boy was it crazy.  The crowds were humongous and the people were very rude; grabbing, pushing and shoving.  I almost got into a fight a couple of times.  Child, you know my temper; but they backed down before I really went off on them.

Secret Santa1I got some good deals though, and I still have to buy some more things for my family.  I also have to buy some things for my “Secret Santa” at work and I’m not sure what I’m going to give Pastor this year.  I just might do what I did last year and give him money.

Credit CardsChild, I can’t wait until all of this is over, so that my life can get back to normal.  At least until the credit card bills start rolling in.  I’m counting on my Income Tax to pay for most of my Christmas.  I just hope I don’t go crazy and spend too much like I did last year.

DebtI didn’t pay off my credit cards from all my Christmas shopping until May and boy was my husband mad.  He made me swear on God that I would never do that again.  But you know me, I always go overboard when it comes to Christmas.

Gloria: You’re lucky, I spent so much on Christmas last year that I am still paying on it now.  Oh well, you know what they say, “You can’t take it with you.”  Besides, Christmas only comes once a year and the Bible says, “It is better to give than to receive.”  (I did a Bible search with “Bible Gateway.com” and I could not find this quote.)

Brenda: I don’t like this time of year because everything is so hectic and I feel so rushed all of the time.

MacysGloria: Yeah, I know what you mean.  I wish I didn’t have to even get involved with Christmas.  It wouldn’t hurt my feelings if the government suddenly outlawed it.  I would save a lot of money and have half the stress.

Oh, did you hear, Target is having a “One Day Sale” this Friday and they are gonna have some great deals.

Brenda: Really, thanks for telling me, what time does it start?

Gloria: The doors open at 6:00 Am.  Child, I’m gonna be there at 5, because you know it’s gonna be a madhouse.

Target LineBrenda: I know what you mean, I’ll meet you there.  If you get there before me, save a space in line for me and I’ll do the same for you.

Gloria: OK.  I just might call into work and tell them I’m sick, because I know by the time I finish fighting that crowd, I will be sick and tired.

Brenda: Me too!  Then we can take our time and find some great bargains.  Good seeing you and we’ll talk again on Friday.  Don’t forget, save my place in line in case you get there before me.

Delusional Unicorn“A delusion (all underlined words are links) is a belief held with strong conviction despite superior evidence to the contrary.  As a pathology, it is distinct from a belief based on false or incomplete information, confabulation, dogma, illusion, or other effects of perception.”

God DelusionIn the field of psychology, the above definition applies to everything except religion.  It is acceptable behavior to not only believe in the existence of an imaginary person, you can actually see, hear and talk to that imaginary person as long as it is a religious deity.

Seneca The YoungerSeneca the Younger stated, “Religion is regarded by the common people as true; by the wise as false; and by rulers as useful.”

MarxKarl Marx viewed religion as the “opium of the masses,” because it is used by the ruling class to give poor people false hopes in believing they will have a better life in an imaginary place called “heaven.”

By the way, this place called “heaven” is allegedly located somewhere in the sky and you can only get there when you die.

To date, none of the worlds’ most sophisticated radar nor satellite detection systems have ever been able to locate this magical and mythical place called “heaven.”

After Xmas SalesIt is interesting that beginning on December 26th of every year, the merchants have the greatest sales of the year.  This is because on January 1st they will be assessed a tax on all merchandise remaining in their stores.

If these merchants were sincere about Christmas, it seems to me that they would have their biggest sales before December 25th, and Jesus Christ would receive all of the gifts instead of giving gifts to each other.

NativityAfter all, we are allegedly celebrating His birthday.  Why should we give anyone else a birthday present?  How would you feel if someone gave you a birthday party and all of your guests gave gifts to each other, and no one gave a gift to you?  Would you still have reason to celebrate the season?

Every year Black African Americans engage in delusional behavior by celebrating two mythical White characters simultaneously, both of whom was created by our White European enslavers for the sole purpose of enslaving the Colored people of the world.

SantaOn the one hand, we are misled into believing that “Santa Claus is coming to town,” while on the other hand we are taught that a, JesusWhite Jesus is the reason for the season.”

Minstrel ShowGood X JesusBy the way, some of you might remember what happened in the episode of the TV sitcom (Minstrel Show) Good Times, where the character Michael “James” wanted to replace the picture of the White Jesus with a picture of a “Black Jesus” and the character Flora, his mother “Wife” had a hissy fit.

Watch it for your selves and pay strict attention to all of the subliminal messages of White Superiority and Black Inferiority.

Even though there is absolutely, no historical, anthropological or archeological evidence substantiating the existence of the mythical religious White Savior we call Jesus Christ, the Christian world including Black Africans throughout the Diaspora celebrate His alleged birth annually on December 25th.

The only proof to the existence of this mythical White Jesus Christ can be found in the Bible and other religious texts, which cannot be used to substantiate this myth because it does not meet the criteria of the scientific method.

I know; some of you believe science and religion is antithetical because science requires thinking and logic, while religion relies solely on blind faith and blind obedience to the tenets of this faith as promulgated in the Bible and the pastors espousing them.  Those who accept Christianity as their religion accepts the doctrines of the Bible as being infallible and without errors.

Emperor ConstantineIn actuality, this mythical entity we call Jesus Christ was created/born in the summer of 325 AD when a council of 318 Roman Catholic Bishops convened under the auspices of Emperor Constantine in Nicaea.

Emperor Constantine, after conquering ancient Egypt, entered the temples, saw the sacred writings and symbolisms, and leaned unto his own understanding.  He then took what he understood those sacred writings to mean and convened the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD.

JCThis Council of Nicaea, met for the purpose of resolving differences between The Church of Alexandria as to whether the “Son” created Himself.  At the conclusion of this Council, we were given birth to the mythical character we now call Jesus Christ.

Ptolemy 1 EgyptPtolemy I Soter,(Soter means savior) was the First European King of Ancient Egypt’s Ptolemaic Dynasty.   It was he who created the world’s first image of the mythical character known as Jesus The Christ.  SerapisHe used the image of Serapis, a Graeco-Egyptian god.

This Nicaea Council repackaged and plagiarized the Sacred Writings of ancient Egypt, as well as other ancient sacred texts of the world’s sixteen previously crucified Saviors ,into Christianity, and forced this myth upon all the conquered peoples of the known world.  Thus, we have the birth of Christianity in general and Jesus Christ in particular.

MithraThe celebration of Christmas dates back to the ancient Romans, who celebrated the birth of Mithra, the God of the unconquerable sun, during the winter solstice on December 25th.  Initially Christianity did not celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

AscensionInstead, they celebrated His resurrection (Read my post on Easter).  His birth became important to the church rulers by the fourth century in order to convert the non-Christians.

Since pagan Rome was already celebrating the birth of Mithra, it became very easy for the powers-to-be to merge the two births into one; thus, celebrating the sun god was transformed into the celebration of the alleged “Son of God.”

Those living in the middle ages had replaced the ancient pagan rituals with the new Christmas ritual. Prior to the 1800s, celebrating Christmas was more like celebrating the Fourth of July, Halloween or the Mardi Gras.  Many Christmas parties turned into drunken orgies, as some do today.

Puritan England originally band Christmas because of the drunken orgies that took place as part of the celebration.  However, the masses were still celebrating it as a raucous holiday instead of a religious one.

Lord of misruleDuring the earlier Christmas celebrations, beggars were crowned, “The Lords of Misrule.”  They would then lead the partygoers to the houses of the rich and famous, and when they arrived, the rich and famous were obliged to give these beggars their best food and booze.  If they did not give the beggars their best, these beggars would engage in a trick or two.

The lyrics of an old Christmas song went as follows, “If you don’t give us what we want, down will come butler, bowl and all.”  Today, at most Christmas parties, the hosts & hostesses provide their best food as well as their most expensive booze.

Early American Protestants initially ignored Christmas, and celebrating it was forbidden in their churches.  Because of this, their church attendance was very low during the holiday seasons because their “sheep” were attending churches where Christmas was both condoned and celebrated.

As the saying goes, “If you can’t beat them, then you join them.”  The Protestant leaders acquiesced and began celebrating Christmas, in order to keep its members from joining other churches.

St NickAlthough Santa Claus originated in America, Saint Nicholas was a Greek Orthodox Bishop of the middle ages. In Holland he was called Sinter Claus and the Dutch brought the tradition to America.  Throughout Europe, December 6th was known as St. Nicholas Day and all of the “good children” would receive gifts.  Sadly, none of the “bad children” received any gifts on this day.

Clement MooreThe earlier depiction of Santa Claus was that of a pagan sorcerer as well as a fat drunk riding on a sleigh pulled by turkeys. In 1822, Clement Clark Moore, an Episcopal preacher in New York City wrote a poem for his children, entitled, “The Night Before Christmas.”

Santa SleighAs you now see, it was this preacher who created and perpetuated the lie about flying reindeers and Santa Claus coming down fiery chimneys.

By the 1840s, the myth of Santa Claus became an advertising success.  The retailers began bringing Santa Claus to their stores because it made good dollars and $ense.

Obey ImpulseSanta Claus was able to convince the buying public to buy just about anything on impulse during the Christmas season.

Xmas Parade2By the 1920s, the Christmas parade had become an annual holiday event in New York City.  Today, over 80% of Americans celebrate Christmas in one way or the other.  With all of their extravagant spending, they half-heartedly try to say that, “White Jesus is the reason for the season.”

Toys 4 TotsIn reality, the mythological character, Jesus Christ has never been the reason for the season. It has always been about spending money on $tuff that people do not need.  The U.S. Marine Corps has the, “Toys for Tots” program that give toys to needy children.

It seems to me that “needy” children are in need of things other than toys.  In fact, toys do not qualify as a need; they are merely wants, because your “needs” are life sustaining and they only consist of food, clothing and shelter.

Xmas MagicOne of the first lies that we tell our children is the lie about Christmas.  We tell our Black African American babies if they have been “good” all year, Santa Claus will bring them “lots of toys.”

Many of us have taught our children not to speak to strangers and if a stranger tries to touch them, they are to run away – screaming and yelling to an authority figure for urgent help.

santa-485x650However, you can go to any mall or large department store in America and see crying, screaming Black African American children being forcibly dragged by their parents to an alter where a White man in a red suit and bearded disguise is waiting to have them placed on his lap for the primary purpose of lying to them.  This White man will promise them that he will be the one granting them their heart’s desires.

Many poor Black African American parents have scuffled and scrapped all year to provide the very basic items of food, clothing and shelter to their families, only to go into debt to buy Christmas $tuff, or go begging various organizations to “give them” Christmas toys for their children, in hopes that they too will have a White Christmas.

Then, they will lie to their children, telling them that some fat, bearded White man, in a red suit flew through the sky in a sleigh, pulled by ten flying reindeers (without wings), visiting every house on this planet in only one night.

They also are taught that this same fat, bearded White man climbed down their imaginary chimney and placed their presents under the Christmas tree.

It does not matter that many Black African American homes do not have chimneys.  They will still hang stockings on artificial fireplaces, in hopes that White Santa will appear and fill them with holiday cheer.

Millions of Black African Americans will spend billions of dollars this year, celebrating a myth, and telling blatant lies to their impressionable children.  They will tell their children that if they are good, a White Santa Claus will bring them their hearts’ desires.

My definition of stupidity is repeatedly engaging in the same detrimental behavior and expecting it to turn out differently.  As social beings, many of us are afraid that our peers will ostracize us, if we do not go along with these ritualistic behaviors.

Xmas TreeBlack African Americans worship White people so much, that we do not see the injurious affects this Christmas lie has on our children.  Many of us have taught these young impressionable minds that a White Santa came down an imaginary chimney and brought these gifts for them so they could have the White Christmas they have dreamed of.

In the next breath, we teach our Black African American children that Christmas is the celebration of the birth of a White Jesus Christ.  We then give children money to buy birthday gifts for everyone except White Jesus Christ.  We will even give them money to buy gifts for us to place under the Christmas tree.

EdenInitially, evergreen trees were decorated with apples as symbols of the Garden of Eden and these apples were gradually transformed into the modern day Christmas ornaments.

Holly was typically a winter decoration, which was used to symbolize the crown of thorns that Jesus, was allegedly forced to wear.

The “infallible” Bible speaks against having Christmas trees, as written in the Book of Jeremiah, beginning with the tenth chapter:

Xmas Tree1“Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.  For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.  They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.  They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go.  Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.”

When they get older, our Black African American children will realize that their parents, as well as the other significant adults in their lives, have been lying to them about White Santa Claus.

Since these adults have lied to them about White Santa Claus and they witness all of the foolishness that is taking place in many Black African American churches, they will begin to question these adults’ beliefs about their White Jesus Christ.

Cruel TruthThe real tragedy is that by the time they begin to question these lies, both of the “white lies” will have been so ingrained into them that they dare not challenge the status quo, so they will just perpetuate the delusion, just like we, their parents and elders have been doing for centuries.

Common SenseOh, what a blessing it is that my people do not read, think or use Common Sense says the Pastors, Pimps and Politicians.
