blast from the past
A simple enough question which would be impossible to accurately answer without combining world history and religion, because from the beginning the two has been intertwined.

Our African-American journey started at the beginning of humankind's existence with the first couple named Adam & Eve, who lived right here on earth.

Eve's name means "the mother of all living," and even though many people on earth today are of different colors and ethnicities, Adam and Eve are the common ancestors of us all. Researchers today have produced DNA evidence that confirms that all modern humans have a common ancestry.

Adam and Eve had the prospect of living in the Garden of Eden forever without ever dying under one condition. God told Adam not to eat of a particular tree in the garden, and if he did, he would surely die.

Adam told his wife of God's command. It seemed like a simple enough test of loyalty for the first human couple, but did they obey?
 







blast from the past
It's a fact. Throughout the centuries this story in one form or another has been told over and over again. It has endured time because it really happened.

One famous story derived from Adam and Eve failing the loyalty test which resulted in much hardship for humanity, was Greek mythology's Pandora's box. The phrase "to open Pandora's box" means to perform an action that may seem small or innocent, but that turns out to have severely detrimental and far-reaching negative consequences.

I think a better question would be what didn't happen? Violence, sickness, disease, hate, murder are the results of Adam and Eve's failure. In time, Adam and Eve would make love, and the earth would become populated with many people.

Many violent people, and because of this, God regretted he had created man.

 


 
But thankfully there was one man God found favor with who went by the name of Noah. God instructed Noah to build an ark because he was going to destroy the earth full of violent people with a global flood.

Noah, his wife and three sons and the son's wives along with the chosen animals of the earth would be saved, and Noah did exactly what he was told to do, he did just so.

Yes, that's right! It rained 40 days and nights, but after it had stopped, the ark stayed afloat many months until the water receded. It finally landed on the mountains of Ararat in Turkey.

You would think so, but that wasn't the case as we will show you later. All human beings on earth are descended from Noah's family. The three sons of Noah would represent prospective families (races) in what's called "The Table of Nations."


Shem - (meaning; named, prosperity or renown) too many to mention here, but some of the sons of Shem are Assyrians, Northern Iraqis, Hebrews, Israelis, Jews, Arabians, Bedouins, Syrians, Lebanese, etc.

Ham - (meaning; hot, warm, burnt or dark) too many to mention here, but some of the sons of Ham are Canaanites, Chinese, Japanese, Asians, Malaysians, American Indians, Eskimos, Polynesians, Pacific Islanders, Ethiopians, Sudanese, Ghanaians, Somalians, North Africans etc.

Japheth - (meaning; opened, enlarged, fair or light) too many to mention here, but some of the sons of Japheth are Russian, Scandinavians, Armenians, Germans, Belgians, Dutch, Swiss, Britons, English, Irish, French, Yugoslavians, Croatians, Bosnians, Italians, Spaniards, Portuguese etc.

At this point in history, all people were of one language. Nimrod, a mighty Hamite hunter who opposed God, took the opportunity to lead the people in building The Tower of Babel in the land of Shinar.

They wanted to make a grand name for themselves and to protect themselves in the event of another flood. But God didn't want people concentrated in one area. He wanted them to spread out and to fill the earth.

So what did God do?

He confused their language into 70 different dialects. So they couldn't understand each other which made it almost impossible to complete the building of the tower. This is when each language group left the land of Shinar and began to fill the earth.

 Tower of Babel



 
Unable to communicate with one another, each language group set out to explore the world as illustrated below. In time because of variables such as region, climate, and only intermarrying among their group, distinct races, and cultures of peoples began to emerge.

Shem was already in a special relationship with God, so Ham and Japheth created thier own belief systems, in the form of idolatry.

amun
The god Amun



Ham's religion taught that all living things were connected as one with the universe and should be respected. Ham worshipped many gods, but the most prominent was Amun. The family of Ham also practiced a belief in the goddess Ma´at, that personified perfect order and harmony. Africans had a strong sense of morality and justice.

They felt that the right should prosper and that the guilty would be punished. After death, each soul was weighed on the scale of Ma´at. If their heart was heavier than the feather because they had failed to live a balanced life by the principles of Ma´at their heart was either thrown into a lake of fire or devoured by a deity known as Ammit. If, however, the heart balanced with the feather of Ma´at they would pass the test and gain eternal life.

maat
The goddess Ma'at



In addition to the importance of the Ma'at, several other principles within ancient Egyptian law were essential, including an adherence to tradition as opposed to change, which is one of the reasons Africa didn't progress with the rest of civilization, and by their peaceful nature was so easily dominated by the Europeans during slavery.

The 42 principles of Ma'at aided the continent of Africa into becoming a peaceful civilization. There wasn't a need for police to keep the law, or to lock doors, and yes, they did have doors. -- Ma'at

Were the people of Africa savages?

In the late 1800's, a black historian named George Washington Williams traveled to West Africa and documented his interesting findings. He mentions that some Africans were savage, especially with their practice of human sacrifices, but most were peaceful, loving people. He writes:

"The African's nature is as sunny as the climate he lives. He is not brutal, as many advocates of slavery have asserted. Africans have a keen sense of the beautiful and are susceptible of whatever culture is brought within their reach. The Negro nature is not sluggish, but joyous and vivacious. In his songs, he celebrates victories, and laughs at death with the complacency of the Greek Stoics."   George Washington Williams

Slave traders had to portray the Africans as savages because this made slavery acceptable in the minds of white people.

Japheths belief system

Japheth's (white man) religious belief system was called Mythology. Long before Christianity, the Greeks had combined African and Greek culture to form their religious beliefs. Zeus, who was the father of the Greek gods was just recreated from the Egyptian god Amun. Zeus Amun came to be identified with Zeus in Greece.

Mythology

The true God who saved Noah from the flood was well aware of these false idols/gods. Of course, we have more information today and now know that Amun and Zeus were a figment of their imagination, and didn't exist. But in those days, people believed there were powerful gods who deserved worship. The true God didn't like that.

Jeremiah 46:25 The Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, said: “Behold, I am bringing punishment upon Amon of Thebes, and Pharaoh and Egypt and her gods and her kings, upon Pharaoh and those who trust in him.

African deities were well known to the Greeks and worshipped by them. Also, many philosophers not only worshipped African gods but were taught by black scholars as well, in fields such as medicine, science, philosophy, geometry, astronomy, etc. Aristotle once made a comment that... “Egypt was the cradle of mathematics”

Modern historians have omitted or downplayed much of this valuable info and in the process not only shortchanged the people of African descent in learning about their culture, but also people of European descent which gave many a superiority complex to dark skinned peoples in believing the Greeks were the cradle of civilization, and Africans contributed nothing.

Today, it's slowly being revealed its very likely Greece received most of their revolutionary ideas from the more advanced civilizations in Africa.  http://history.howstuffworks.com/history

greek fathers
Greek philospers learned from Africans



Aided with this compelling information, just pause for a moment and imagine what African, Greek and Roman scholars of old would think of individuals today who claim superiority because of skin color. Foolish isn't it?

In time a Greek philosopher named Thales of Miletus who had previously studied in Africa attempted to explain natural phenomena without reference to mythology. His groundbreaking studies of nature would have a tremendous impact in Europe.

Thales didn't believe in myth or superstition which many of his days swore to, but only facts proven through science. Thales became known as the father of science, to the Europeans.

Thales of Miletus

Other great philosophers would appear on the world scene to educate the masses in the study of science which was called Natural philosophy as opposed to mythology.

Europeans wanted more control of their lives with decision making, and Natural philosophy provided that. Greeks would slowly change their way of thinking and desired to rely on themselves and Natural philosophy instead of the idol/gods.

Greeks received the building blocks of science from the Africans and began to perfect it, making it their own. Science would soon dominate the Europeans thinking and dictated their every move. It would also play a huge role in the upcoming slavery issue. Goodbye Zeus.

Shem's belief system

Since Noah's day, Shem had been in a special relationship with the true God, up until Jesus arrived on the scene. During that period, Shem's family made many mistakes. God forgave them many times. In pre-Christian days, if Japheth or Ham wanted to join Shem in true worship, it was entirely possible.

God had special accommodations for those of another religion to worship Him. But only if they abandoned their false religious practices. But during the Christianity era, God didn't forget about humanity because after Jesus died for us, this opened the door for all brothers to repent and share in a special relationship with the true God.

The Apostle Peter would make the statement:

“I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.”

africans trapped in time

The Sahara Desert wasn't always a desert but was once a beautiful and lush scenery. But over time it grew into a formidable barrier which made it almost impossible for Sub-Saharan Africans to venture out to share with the rest of the world.

As mentioned earlier, it was the custom of the Africans to resist change. They loved tradition. Even to this day, there are still tribes who practice the same rituals, day end and day out as they did centuries ago. If the desert didn't exist, we wonder if they would have ventured out to explore the way they did at the beginning of time. Who knows the answer?

It's well documented that early Africans had a very peaceful nature which made them easy pickens for the ruthless and opporntunist Europeans, that was becoming more superior minded with their new found religion of science.

Even though not mentioned in most history books, Africa was the beginning of advanced civilizations. One kingdom among many was"The City Of Benin." Consider these quotes by white travelers who visited there many years ago.

"The king's palace or court is a square and is as large as the town of Haarlem and surrounded by a special wall, like that which encircles the town. It is divided into many magnificent palaces, houses, and apartments of the courtiers, and comprises beautiful and long square galleries...resting on wooden pillars, from top to bottom covered with cast copper, on which are engraved the pictures of their war exploits and battles, and are kept very clean." Olfert Dapper, a Dutch writer, describing Benin in his book Description of Africa (1668)

In 1691, the Portuguese ship captain Lourenco Pinto observed: “Great Benin, where the king resides, is larger than Lisbon; all the streets run straight and as far as the eye can see. The houses are large, especially that of the king, which is richly decorated and has fine columns. The city is wealthy and industrious. It is so well governed that theft is unknown and the people live in such security that they have no doors to their houses.”


The inhabitants of Benin had created a wall that extended close to 10,000 miles to protect their thriving communities. It took over 600 years to complete. It was truly a wonder of the world.

But in 1897 the city was completely looted and destroyed by the British along with beautiful African art which still sits in museums around the world today. To burn African towns and civilizations to the ground were a typical tactic of the Europeans. This is how much of African history was erased.


Benin


These people lived in tribal clans and villages. Centuries earlier they had been the first to sail the mighty oceans traveling as far as America to the west (Indians) and Australia to the east (Aborigines). In time they found themselves landlocked by a slowly growing roadblock called The Sahara Desert.

Progressing to the Christianity era, regular people didn't have access to the bible as you, and I have today. It was self-reserved for the Catholic Church and written in Latin.

But because of many questionable Bible teachings, the people began to doubt the church and created translations into their language. This is how the Protestant Reformation started, and tons of different religions would follow.

The elite class who could afford to have their copy of the Bible considered it a sign of refinement class and civilization. But in time with the invention of the printing press, regular everyday people could now have access to the Bible.

age of enlightment

The Europeans thirst for knowledge was unquenchable. Japheth studied, compared and recorded results of just about everything in nature and human beings. Science in itself became a type of religion for many Europeans. This made them super confident, almost to the point of being arrogant and cocky. They had a name for this action in Greek culture, it was called Hubris.

whites are not smarter
No, it does not. Intelligence was not exclusive to Japheth over his brothers. We must remember that all civilization was built on the back of Africans. All it takes is a simple study on the internet to dig those facts out. Eurocentric history books are not going to let that truth be known.

Early Asians and Muslims also played a significant role in science with algebra, the compass, gunpowder, papermaking, printing, etc.

Also, many Asians would never admit they are from the Ham family, but they are. If you were to google "African immigrants in college" , you would discover that in today's world African and Asian immigrants out-perform all races academically in higher learning in American colleges.


So skin color has absolutely nothing to do with intelligence, just like Greek philosophers would tell you if they were alive today. In fact, they would probably laugh at you for mentioning that. All races are equally capable of learning to the highest degree.


whites are not smarter
isaac newton


But time would tell if science would be used wisely to help humanity. It's no question that it possesses much value. Sadly, Japheth didn't have the common sense and moral capacity to handle such a huge responsibility.

History shows us that his newly found religion of science would elevate his ego and self-worth with each discovery. He soon began to doubt the very existence of God. Scientist began to take credit for their discoveries as if they or nature created it. Job:38


With this new found confidence, it wasn't long before whites would proclaim themselves superior and illuminators of the world. When it came time to study the Negro who had been landlocked in Africa he was found severely lacking and branded an inferior ape-like creature without a hope or place in the civilized world.

These superior whites, whether by their complete silence or active participation committed many atrocities against the peaceful and defenseless Africans. Many had to know it was wrong, but their new found belief in science gave them freedom from having a moral conscience because it didn't require them to have one.

 
what is big bang theory
Listen to this folly. The scientist would later introduce the "Big Bang Theory" which is a scientific belief that it's possible to create something out of nothing. They teach as the fact that all life started in a humongous explosion rather than by a Creator. Vicious lies were taught about evolution that man evolved from apes, to which blacks were closely related.

What's sad is when black people support evolution in an attempt to appear intelligent. They want to be a part of the white in-crowd. It just doesn't add up. Sorry Neil

The scientist also taught as the fact that vigorous competition weeded out the weaker of the human race, and kept others stronger and especially the white ones with the survival of the fittest theory. In the 21st century, scientific carbon testing methods would falsely calculate the earth as being billions of years old. Most people would accept this as fact instead of investigating a little time to learn for themselves how highly unreliable, and inaccurate these methods are.

Many so-called brilliant people in Europe and America believed these mistruths and jumped on the bandwagon.

These teachings would be hilarious if they weren't so serious because sadly, they caused millions of deaths. Not only for black people, but other races as well. So-called brilliant people's theory of evolution implies to transform into something better, not worse. Well, what happened to the evolution of man? Man is going backward and getting worse; he's not transforming into something better. He's reverting to barbarism and still not capable of love and compassion.

Evidently, evolution ignores the evil human heart. It doesn't make any sense for this beautiful earth to be created in a big bang over billions of years ago, creating different animal species, breathtaking nature, fantastic food to eat and drink and many other pleasures to finally be ruined by a small group of rich, privileged and greedy men instituting countless wars of mass destruction and hate against humanity. Does that make sense to you? Duh!

The beautiful lady below desires a husband very much. She wants one so badly she has already purchased her wedding ring. How long do you think she has to keep watching the rock she is holding until it explodes into the perfect husband for her?

If you believe that's possible, you're likely a follower of evolution and a disbeliever in creation, because one thing is for sure, it's impossible to believe in both.

First Slave Ship
The first Africans slaves arrived in 1619 in the North American colonies in Jamestown. When this form of bondage was first introduced into Virginia, it was looked upon as a temporary necessity to be discarded with the increase of the white population.

The planters who first bought negroes at the auction block didn't intend to establish a system of permanent bondage. Only by a slow process did chattel slavery take firm root and become recognized as the leading source of the labor supply. http://www.gutenberg.org/files/16960/16960-h/16960-h.htm

In those days slavery had another name. It was called indentured servitude which was a labor system set up for immigrants who wanted a new life in America. They would work for a fixed number of years and then set free to work on their own. The color of one's skin didn't matter as much as it would during official slavery. The black skin would slowly become associated with slavery later.

Sometimes these indentures would escape. John Punch who was black fled along with two white indentures, and was ultimately captured and brought back for trial. It was a severe matter.

The judgment was an extra four years slavery for the two white men and lifelong slavery for John Punch, and all were to receive 30 lashes.

John Punch is considered the first official slave in the English colonies. Also, a distinction is made between black and white in this case, and slavery was becoming an issue distinguishable by black skin.

slaves viewed as cargo

 
Slavery was officially underway and would become an American institution. Most slaves were in the southern states farming cotton. These vicious southerners were relentless in their mistreatment of blacks. Lacking a moral conscious because of their belief in science and twisted beliefs in religion they were able to execute evil without guilt.

Slaves were at the mercy of these so-called superior whites in the form of countless murders, rapes of the women, torture for their wicked pleasures and many more horrific atrocities that can't be mentioned on this web page.

slavery officially underway

 
During slavery, blacks were 100% reliant on their master for life. They didn't possess the life skills you and I have today. They didn't know how to read and write because slavemasters made it a felony to teach them because of a fear of rebellion against their authority.

Whole families could be separated at a moment's notice by selling a member to another plantation owner. It was a very demeaning and horrible way of life. But slaves were an amazing group of people to endure their incredibly harsh reality.

Why?

Because similar treatment almost wiped out the Native Americans from the face of the earth. Blacks adapted and found a way to survive, mainly with the help of their new Christian religion the whites had taught them. They compared themselves with the slaves of the Bible and would yearn for their Judgement Day to be set free. They hated slavery. Religion gave them hope. In fact, it was their only hope.

In time their Judgement Day was looking them right square in the face with the start of the Civil War. America didn't want to be recognized as a slave country, but greedy racist southerners disagreed, so they fought against each other.

CIVIL WAR

 
Over 179,000 blacks wanted to prove their worth in the Civil War, fighting for their American citizenship. Lincoln was hesitant at first but eventually caved in. He was glad he did.

Colored soldiers fought with distinction, courage, and valor, and would play a significant role in Union victory.

What a remarkable American President Abraham Lincoln was.

Lincoln had his prejudices and doubts about the Negro the same as many whites of his day. During the 17th century, science had taught as fact blacks could not be educated or enlightened members of society, but would remain an unteachable savage ape-like beast.

What made this giant of a man stand out from the rest was his love for American principles that he put first and his prejudices and doubts second. American principles stated in the Declaration of Independence that "All men are created equal" Lincoln would eventually sacrifice his life for his strong beliefs on what America was founded.

Sadly, there would not be another President until Lyndon Baines Johnson of the 1960s Civil Rights movement which fully shared Lincolns views about American principles not only with words but more importantly with deeds also. There were numerous Presidents after Lincoln died who would talk about how bad black American citizens were treated but would always fail to act.

Reconstruction Aid

 
In 1863 President Abraham Lincoln would pronounce that all slaves are forever free with the Emancipation Proclamation. Two years later the Union was victorious in defeating the Confederacy.


How did the Negroes feel around this time?


FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST, WE ARE SO HAPPY TO BE FREE AT LAST


We want to learn how to be real Americans and fruitful citizens. But we have been dependent on whites for everything. We don't know how to earn a living with a real live paycheck, read and write, benefits of morality, opening a bank account, managing our money, how to distinguish between necessity and want, man-woman-son-daughter relationships, man-woman relationships, keeping our house maintained, the importance of honesty in personal and business dealings, how to think big and become self-reliant with confidence and the many more life skills that are needed in American society.

The United States Government recognized this shortcoming and wanted to help. They instituted Reconstruction Aid which would assist the Negroes into assimilation in American culture. Educated blacks were elected to office formerly held by the Confederates who had been reduced to shame in being governed by the former slaves.

Blacks were allowed to vote in elections. Schools were packed to the brim with blacks attempting to improve themselves and adapt to American culture as a free person as opposed to being a slave. Blacks were ecstatic and felt they were finally on the road to American inclusion.

But sadly, black happiness was very short-lived when a deal was struck between the United States government and the racist South (Confederates) to eliminate all Reconstruction aid to blacks. This was called the 1877 Compromise with blacks calling it the 1877 Grand Betrayal.

1877 compromise

A political cartoon by Joseph Keppler depicts the behind the doors 1877 Compromise lawmakers instituted against blacks that actually ended schooling aid into American mainstream all courtesy of the embedded racist element that was allowed to remain and should have been destroyed with the recent Civil War victory.

Roscoe Conkling as a character Mephistopheles (the devil) while Rutherford B. Hayes strolls off with the prize of the "Solid South" depicted as a woman. The caption quotes Goethe: "Unto that Power he doth belong Which only doeth Right while ever willing Wrong."
after the compromise
It's not hard to imagine the disappointment and anguish of blacks during this period. Blacks had to think to themselves, man what do we have to do to find favor with these white people? Forget American principles and ideals this country was founded on that all men are created equal. Whites would throw that out the window and institute new and illegal laws called Jim Crow that were designed to keeps blacks oppressed and out of the sight of the average white person's life. And it worked very very well for many many decades.

There's not enough room on this web page to describe the hate and exclusion by the government and white Americans against blacks during this period. Jim Crow laws touched every part of life, all across America. Blacks and whites were kept apart as much as possible. Good jobs went to whites, and blacks were given the worst with less pay. Also, many industries wouldn’t hire blacks. Many unions passed special rules to exclude them. All juries and judges were white; blacks were illegally denied voting rights. No blacks allowed in public pools. Many restaurants would not serve blacks, and those that did had a dirty colored section. Blacks and whites went to county fairs on different days. Blacks couldn't use public libraries. Simple common courtesy was rarely shown the blacks. Whites beat, tortured, raped and killed blacks with no fear of punishment. Blacks were denied credit for businesses, housing, cars by the banks. Blacks were kept out of white neighborhoods with housing covenants. Oklahoma had black and white phone booths. Texas had cities where blacks were entirely restricted from living. Blacks could not leave their homes after 10:00 pm in Mobile Alabama. Blacks could not marry whites. Georgia had separate white and black parks. Prisons, hospitals, and orphanages were segregated as were schools and colleges. Blacks and whites had to use different sets of books in school, in Florida, they couldn't be stored together. When a person was sworn in at a trial, the whites used one Bible, and the blacks had a separate Bible. For those who did complete college, a crucial question had to be answered. Who was going to be their clients? Whites didn't engage blacks in business, and the battered Negro couldn't afford their services. These laws became so entrenched in American life; even unwritten laws affected black citizenship, blacks understood to stay out of white stores and establishments. Segregation was so complete that whites did not see blacks except when being served by them.



the negro is a beast

In the image of God
If slavery wasn't bad enough, now blacks had to deal with a very racist media who published untrue lies that many people of that day believed and some still do today. One favorite book, in particular, was entitled The Negro a Beast which claimed to prove that blacks weren't human at all but beast created by God without a soul and solely meant to serve whites.
http://www.lojsociety.org/Is_the_Negro_A_Beast_Reply.pdf


Most white Americans didn't question these false teachings but chose to remain silent and reap the benefits of living as a privileged white American completely ignoring the principles of democracy for all citizens which are what this country was founded. They taught their children to do the same which perpetuated the injustice and hate against blacks for generation after generation.




Lenin's Bolsheviks Revolution

Lenin's Bolsheviks Revolution
But there would be changes coming for blacks from some unlikely sources. The 1917 October Revolution in Russia set the conditions for the rise to state power of Lenin's Bolsheviks, which was the first time any avowedly communist party reached that position.

Communism would make its way onto the world scene and become contrary to Democracy. Because of the terrible treatment blacks endured in this country, the U.S. government was afraid that blacks were swaying towards Communism, which wasn't true. Most blacks loved America.

The Communist made bold and valid claims to the world that Democracy was a farce and benefited only privileged whites in America and denied it's black citizens real freedom, liberty, and justice.

The world was watching, and America didn't like that portrayal one little bit. This is when things slowly began to look up for blacks. Yes, people believe it or not we owe the Civil Rights movement in part to Communism.

Another important factor for movement picking up steam was the formation of the United Nations that FDR started. The United Nations stood for human rights which America denied it's black citizens.

America's race issues were similar to being involved in an unhealthy domestic violence relationship, in a household where all the sad details were kept silent, denied or swept under the rug by the abuser. But with the world becoming more connected with television, radio, etc., America was forced to change and couldn't hide it lies any longer. Study your history.

So it's true that the black person was legally emancipated in 1863, but went through a second slavery of Jim Crow all the way into the 1960s Civil Rights movement when one tired black lady riding a public bus refused to give up her seat for a white male passenger.

It was like black people were screaming to the world, I'm tired and I ain't taking any more of this! It's also interesting to note that even though blacks have always been portrayed as violent, any person searching history would be hard pressed in finding where blacks retaliated by force. It happened but rarely.

Are blacks waiting for an apology?

Blacks were never shown compassion, especially after being freed from slavery. It was evident that much help was needed. It had been illegal for blacks to read and write as a slave. Blacks were never properly introduced into American culture like foreign immigrants arriving in America who had to enter school right off the ship.

It would have made a difference today. So it seems some of us are still outraged about slavery, and have every right to be, but not so angry that it stops us from living a good and honest life, achieving to the highest heights. That would be our greatest payback. So for blacks who may still be waiting for an apology, forget it. White people don't want to talk about this subject, to sincerely air it out, once and for all. They are happy to ignore it.

After the Civil War, there were a small group of white Radical Republicans who wanted to wipe out everything associated with the Confederates completely. They wanted all, to move forward as United Americans. But they were opposed by the majority of whites who elected these people back into office. It is one reason the racist element still exists in America.

Sadly, the racist element in America is here to stay, and too many blacks allow it to intimidate them from education. These weak ones are being played, because we still have too many blacks in our neighborhoods who feel it's a white thing to read a book and grow as human beings?

They feel unworthy to learn, that it's not their place to achieve. They believe the white racist element which called them stupid idiots that can't learn. These weak ones don't know their history. Africans were the beginning of civilization, and that's a fact that can't be taken away. It can be hidden, but not removed.

dont get played


Sadly, these one's feel it's lame or being square to learn, which is furthest from the truth. These people are getting played, and we hope they snap out of it.

But proudly, most blacks have come to live by high American standards we've learned from our ancestor's examples and could care less about the racist element by providing for our families and taking care of business.

Don't let this racist element stop us from achieving our dreams. America belongs to all, yes even these anti-Americans racist.
