I have at times been engaged in debates with Eurocentric white supremacist mindsets and reactionary Negro mindsets about racism, reparations, slavery, freedom and our quest for social justice. Many of them make every attempt to dismiss the so-called African American historical suffering and injustices under white America (tentacles of white supremacy) as something of the past and we should just forget about this tragedy and allow us as a nation to move forward towards racial harmony and national healing (I often refer them to Dr. Joy DeGury's book titled, Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome) in which she maintained that so-called African Americans were never permitted to heal and we are presently living our lives as victims in trauma some 400 years later. My mind leads me to think about the profound book authored by Randal Robinson titled, The Debt: What America Owes to Blacks, which gives us a picture of how this country was built by African slaves, our intellect, resilience and unrewarded labor that constituted our blood, sweat and tears which laid the foundation of the United States—this debt has never even been acknowledged or repaid. It is coded in my blood and my DNA to remember the African/black Holocaust and the dehumanization affect Chattel slavery has had on the collective consciousness of my people of African descent (this criminal event made us a dispossessed and marginalized people, although, we are over 160 years removed from the actual experience). This is why I have always applauded our social-psychologists such as Amos Wilson who authored the book titled, A Blueprint for Black Power a Moral, Political and Economic Imparative for the Twenty-First Century and Dr. Naim Akbar, Chains and Images of Psychological Slavery.

I have also always applauded the historical liberation work of Martin Delaney, Henry Highland Garnet, Paul Cuffee, Marcus Garvey, Bishop McNeal Turner, Drew Ali, etc.—they had it right.  The only solution to ever ending this racial social disharmony and divisiveness inside America is the eradication of white denial and a dispersing of justice for the so-called American Negro (reparations must be apart of this discussion without this there cannot be any atonement or reconciliation)—no civil rights legislation and not even an elected body of fifty plus Negroes in the U.S. Congress (Congressional Black Caucus) they don't possess the ability or political wither-all to resolving our historical and present dilemma (they think with a slave mentality). Thus, they have no real political lobbying influence and power to put forth the black agenda and are to fearful of truly lobbying on behalf of so-called Africans in America and throughout the disapora (these Negroes only lobby for the crumbs that falls from the rich man Lazarus' table). They do not have the power of the pharmaceutical industries lobby, National Rifle Association lobby, Military Manufacturers and the military industry lobby nor the Jewish Lobby, which to mold and shape public policy in the interest of black people.

White America is quick to make the assessment that if you are dissatisfied with America, why don't you leave? We did not asked to come here my ancestors were brought to these shores against their will (America is our exiled home). I do not mind leaving America, but I often have to remind them that they are not in a moral or legal position to evict me and us off the indigenous people's lands—the Native Americans are our brothers and sisters, and are the only true landlords over the Americas.  But before I/we leave there are some poignant conditions and unfinished business, which must start with calculating 310 years of owed reparations that must be attached to our human suffering, and while you at it calculate the past owed interest on the slave debt (@ 25% on the dollar).  Then multiply this owed gross amount in the area of pain and suffering (what happened to the black man and black woman cannot have a monetize value, the damage is beyond dollars and cents). Also, have the Bank of England and the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank to wire transfer my/our owed monetary debt in Yuan Renminbi currency (Chinese dollars) and deposited it in a Swiss bank (Basil or Geneva) account. And while they are at it petition the United Nations and World Court and turn yourself into the Hague Tribunal (Hague, Netherlands) in order to be charged with war crimes against humanity; do not forget to travel the slave routes of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and Middle Passage and bring as much sage that you can transport and be prepared to burn sage over the Atlantic ocean for next 100 years and give my people the proper burial (what is happening to you all is their souls and spirits are haunting you politically, economically and socially; this was the beginning of our trail of tears—Marcus Garvey said look for me in the world wind). Lets not stop there by first turning yourselves into the custody of U.S. Federal courts and eventually from there may be will transport you to an Islamic country where Sharia is the law. These are my conditions for leaving.

Just as Minister Malcolm X stated in 1960s they are good at making the victims the criminals, and the criminals the victims. The Europeans have decimated the entire African continent (and the globe) based on imperialism and colonialism. They have destroyed Africa's political, social and economic structures and disrupted its cultural continuity as a people (the Berlin Conference in 1884-1885 led to the partitioning of Africa, which divided the continent into little nation-states in order to serve the exploitive interest of the European powers--King Leopold ll opened the conference up in the name of God ). They are still there on the continent of Africa under the auspices of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) (two of the global rogue International banks) exploiting the natural resources and propping up corrupt dictatorships who work and serve in the interest of Western Europe (neo-colonialism)—I trust President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe over the negative propaganda being reported against him by western media (he rightfully redressed African people's land and territory that were stolen by European settlers under Ian Douglas Smith and prior white colonial masters). I cannot forget the inhuman slaughtering of Africans in the diamond mines carried out by Cecil Rhodes in Zimbabwe in the name of capitalism. Europe and Europeans as I have stated above owes Africans on the continent and throughout the Diaspora a great debt.

When the Europeans settlers (the dregs of Europe) in the 1600s arrived to the Eastern Seaboard to what they called the ‘New World’ Christopher Columbus in 1492, was actually lost when he landed on the Caribbean Island of Hispaniola in which the Native Americans (Carib and the Arwak) were there sixteen thousand years before Columbus arrival and what eventually would be called the United States of America—there were two million Native Americans so-called ‘Indians’ (indigenous original people) who were also victims of his practices of white supremacy and global genocide of the darker people of the earth. The Aboriginal people of New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Australia were also victims of systemic practices of racism; the people of India and Asia were victims of his practice of global genocide.

But many who advocate that we are now living in a post-racial era (they were using the 2008 election of President Barack Obama, the first so-called black president as the measuring stick to positively quantify America's present day race relations). And desired to conveniently overlook these racist motivated historical crimes. 
Perhaps the election of Donald J. Trump to the office of President, and him tapping into the real racial sentiments of America and appointing all of them ultra white nationalist to his cabinet, which may have shook us back to reality—America is a racist nation to its core.  

This is why I have always kept black social issues in the forefront of my discussions and conversations; thus, my focus will always be on exposing and bringing greater awareness to the plight of so-called African people and to expose what took place with the original people because of the level of oppression and tyranny they have experienced; which as I stated above, it is often intentionally overlooked by Eurocentric thinkers and intellectuals. However, for me this isn't about race as much as it is about European and American imperialism—injustice that is what I am exposing (It just happened to be that the people who committed these above mentioned crimes and atrocities were Europeans). 

I first met Dr. Michael Eric Dyson at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in North Carolina in which he was upsetting white folk based on his so-called controversial scholarship (writing and speaking truth to power); Dr. Dyson has published a new book titled, Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America. I have not read the book, but I recently saw Dyson talking about the book on CNN and as a public intellectual who often gives sound views on race issues and I am quite sure his recent analysis on race, class, white supremacy, Donald Trump, and on the present and future forecast will be timely.

No. I am not an American citizen, I am one of the 100 million victims of Americanism, my ancestors did not arrive to America on the Nina, Pinta nor the Santa Maria nor did we receive an immigration passport/visa or a green card. But we arrived in the hulls of slave ships (who were stolen from the Hinterlands and placed in slave dungeons at Elmina Castle off the coast of Ghana and Goree Island off the coast of Senegal) and did not receive an official welcoming from the Immigration Naturalization Services (INS). We did not get the opportunity to declare American citizenship like other so-called immigrant people who arrived at Ellis Island (off the Hudson River of New York and New Jersey) my ancestors arrived in chains as political prisoners. Where is the political asylum for the 400 year suffering and persecution of the ex-slaves, victims of the worst crime ever committed against humanity?

Andrew Hacker in his monumental book titled, Two Nations: Black and White Separate, Hostile, Unequal stated, “RACE HAS BEEN an America obsession since the first Europeans sighted "savages" on these shores. In time, those original inhabitants would be subdued or slaughtered, and finally sequestered out of view. But race in America took on a deeper and more disturbing meaning with the importation of Africans as slaves. Bondage would later be condemned as an awful injustice and the nation's shame, even as we have come to acknowledge the stamina and skill it took to survive in a system where humans could be bought and sold and punished like animals. Nor are these antecedents buried away in the past. That Americans of African origin once wore the chains of chattels remains alive in the memory of both races and continues to separate them”.

Hacker continues, “Black Americans are Americans, yet they still subsist as aliens in the only land they know. Other groups may remain outside the mainstream-some religious sects, for example-but they do so vol­untarily. In contrast, blacks must endure a segregation that is far from freely chosen. So America may be seen as two separate nations. Of course, there are places where the races mingle. Yet in most significant respects, the separation is pervasive and penetrating. As a social and human division, it surpasses all others-even gender-in intensity and subordination.” (Reference: Andrew Hacker; “Two Nations: Black and White Separate, Hostile, Unequal” pg. 3).

The so-called African Americans must be properly educated about their history and the political and economic issues surrounding our sojourn and define for them who they were before the advent of slavery and the white man.  Chattel Slavery systematically made us blind, deaf and dumb to the knowledge of self. I am with my Moorish family quest and claim for a recognized nationality; however it must be based on us first knowing that our legacy and heritage (land rights) go much further back than the Europeans labeling us as Americans, black, Ethiopians, Negroes, Colored, African, African American, etc. I have an entire collection of various editions of Black’s Law Dictionaries in my library (we have to know and understand the legal definitions of 'black' and 'American' as defined by Black's Law Dictionary). 

These false racial/ethnic labels allows for them to manipulate our sovereignty and nationality these so-called generic racial labels will continue to nullify our legal grievances to claiming our nationality, which compromises our lawful recognition as Moors (Muurs) a sovereign, independent and indigenous nation who were here before Atlantis disappeared and was geologically repositioned. We are the direct descendants of the ancient Moors (Muurs) and aborigines. This is perhaps the world's best kept secret that is now coming to light; Prophet Noble Drew Ali raised this point in early 1900s in which he tied our descent linage to the ancient biblical Canaanites and Moabites (the original Hebrews and Israelites were black). 

The United Nations in my opinion, is a very important piece in our overall fight for recognition (which the theoretical foundation of our fight will always be rooted in our quest for freedom, justice and equality). The United States and the other European nations must be charged with violating the human rights of so-called African Americans who were the victims of 310 years of unjust brutality and our case one day by the grace of God will be heard in the U.N. Chambers of the Human Rights Commission in which Chattel slavery represented a war crime and crimes against humanity. Minister Malcolm X in 1965, was assassinated not by members of the Nation of Islam; the CIA and the FBI cannot escape culpability in brother Malcolm’s murder, because of his political intentions of taking our international grievances to the United Nations in order to charge the United States of being in violation of African Americans human rights (surely Minister Malcolm X had made a political transition and had moved beyond civil rights). Minister Malcolm X founded the Organization of Afro American Unity (UNIA), which to internationally advocate on behalf of the so-called African American, in particular after his suspension and departure from the Nation of Islam (this plank made Minister Malcolm X a dangerous man and set him on a collision course with the powers-that-be).

The enemy has always sent stool pigeons and agent provocateurs to derail the political, economic and social progress of progressive black movements and organizations. J. Edgar Hoover from the 1950s up until the 1970s utilized the F.B.I. counterintelligence program better known as Cointelpro where the United States Government systematically infiltrated black organizations and spied on its leadership such as: Paul Robeson, Kwame Ture, Jamil Al-Amin, Robert Williams, W.E.B. Dubois, Fannie Lou Hamer, Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam, Malcolm X and the OAAU, Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale and the Black Panther Party, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and SCLC, A. Phillip Randolph and the labor movements, Imari Abubakari Obadele and Chokwe Lumumba of the Republic of New Afrika, etc. 
We know that with the office of Homeland Security and the U.S. Patriot Act the internal surveillance relative to spying and intelligence gathering without legal warrants have been acerbated since 9/11, which allows government intervention (in violation of civil liberties) in the affairs of not just militant and radical groups and individuals but are even spying on ordinary citizens. They justify this in the name of national security interest and by labeling us Enemy Combatants.  Edward Snowden should be hailed as an American hero but when the governments use propaganda and disinformation they keep the masses confused and mentally discombobulated.

The above perspective layout an overview of the sinister and diabolical capitalist interest of how slavery and our forced captivity eventually turned us in to a commodity (agreed European property). Now, what our nation (Moorish nation, the so-called American Negro) is missing, was that our slavery status moved us towards a perpetual transition in 1913, with the establishment of two entities that would have the continued responsibility of serving and sanctioning our historical and illegal kidnapping: the Federal Reserve Act, and the Internal Revenue Service (keeps us in this legal bondage). These two entities assured that Unified Commercial Code (UCC) would forever define and link us to a present and historical status as being Chattel and/or property of the white man's USA corporation. 

This will also allow the Dred Scott Decision (1857) and Missouri Compromise (1820) to forever on one hand mandate us as illegal aliens and yet dupe us into believing that the U.S. Constitution was ratified and that would later add the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to the United States Constitution, which so-called made us United States citizens and Americans (I do not think so).

They defined maritime law or International waters as having its own sovereignty and jurisprudence differs from Continental U.S. territories (these rules of law are uniquely different). So our legal signed agreement with the U.S. Corporation is our collective acceptance to continue to be defined by the above constitutional amendments and agreeing to participate in the affairs of the U.S. corporation. 

But also as Moors (Muurs), we cannot have it both ways. If we understand the legality question of nationality and sovereignty (better than most so-called American Negroes), it places us in a very unique position.  We cannot continue to raise the most prolific and divisive symbol of our oppression, which is the American flag that stood for slavery, death and Christianity to the so-called American Negro. The American flag has no place in our religious and philosophical framework and ideology. If we are serious about creating a different set of freedom language lexicon and as we explore the legal definitions by using the science of etymology and epistemology to breakdown these non-binding and false racial identities applied to the so-called American Negro (we have to also challenge ourselves and our institutions).  Moreover, we can no longer raise the American and the United States flag in our Moorish Science Temples and meetings (as one of visible symbols and we cannot declare recognition of this republic or give credence to their nationhood by signing on to this). 

I think in the early 1900s the Prophet Noble Drew Ali was concerned about using the best of intelligence by protecting the Moorish Science Temple from being attacked by the powerful United States Government and didn't want to subject his followers to being charged with sedition and treason and un-American activity. I think we have the responsibility of respecting the United States sovereignty, but not showing any patriotic allegiance to their flag or national anthem or any of their patriotic symbols  

I am baffled that in 2017, the Moorish Science Temples of America simultaneously claim sovereign independency as Moorish Americans and to justify this contradictory and reactionary symbol known as the American flag by having it present in our places of worship; this is a sign of paying homage to our slave master's legacy—meaning his flag and his sovereignty, which in my opinion is illegal and unlawful. This symbol (in 1776 declared the United States by way of the Declaration of Independence a sovereign nation from British rule) was raised by the Europeans or the white man to justify his war crimes against us as Moors and under this flag he committed murder, genocide, land thievery, and led to the discretion of sacred edifices and holy lands in North America and South America. Much of it was legally belonging to indigenous Moors (in fact all of it). 

If we refer to ourselves as "Moorish American" this represent a legal oxymoron and it compromises and deflates our overall legal position within the U.S. courts and the International courts. We should never allow ourselves to be referred and defined as hyphenated "Americans". No, I am not "Moorish American" and we should burn that damn American flag in our temples and throw it out and raise the sovereign flag of Allah, the Moorish God. I believe in complete sovereignty and I understand my nationality will not include any legal linkages to the term America or American. So that is the challenge that is confronting us as Moors (Muurs), if we are serious about changing the nationality paradigm and breaking the legal cycles of Chattel Slavery and declaring ourselves a free people. 

Some of the American history that I have researched stated that only the six or seven original European settlers who settled as the Thirteen Original Colonies and those who stole the Americas would be classified as Americans and no indigenous people could ever be legally classified as "Americans". So once again we as Moors (Muurs) have to totally discard the American flag and trust in Allah, and move the Prophet Noble Drew Ali's principles and teachings to the next ether. The Prophet Noble Drew Ali was clear about his political, theological and philosophical directions in his treatise the Holy Koran Circle Seven, so I am challenging the Muurs to up their demands and quest, as well as affirmation towards the legal mandates to permanently and legally declare the so-called American Negro a recognized nationality within the United Nations in order to have a place amongst the body of other sovereign nations.

We have to move beyond all these theoretical arguments into establishing a political international law plan of action and become proactive in transitioning us towards claiming our rightful nationality and sovereignty (beyond the rhetoric). Thus, are we prepared to petition the United Nations (which will entail charging the United States Government and other European powers with war crimes against humanity) and wage the legal defense from the international jurisprudence side and work to acquire the monetary resources to wage this monumental legal battle in order to make us legally whole again. This will entail a defense that will tear at the very core and root of the United States Constitution and cause for having some of the best legal minds to frame and defend this argument, which will involve reinterpreting the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. This will lead to relinquishing our 'American' nationality and debunking our so-called ‘American citizenship’ classification status and overturning the Dred Scott Decision and truly declaring ourselves in name and principle free from the bondages of white supremacy.

By Fahim A. Knight-El

Image result for free thinking images

I am constantly asked by those who visited my Blog about my abbreviated online Bio, which indicates that I am a Free Thinker, and many have doubled down to asked, what does that actually mean? Webster online dictionary defines Free Thinking: "as a philosophical viewpoint which holds that position regarding truth should be formed on the basis of logic, reason, and empiricism, rather than authority, tradition, revelation, or other dogma." Now, Free Thinking for me was a spiritual calling (or transformation and transition) that can only be obtained by the journey of life, it involved something much deeper than our natural human instincts and intellectual inclinations to achieve and disperse knowledge and challenge ideals. Although, this will forever be a part of the process and to the outside world will perhaps stand as the judgmental variable and parameters of determining whether or not you will be received as a true Free Thinker; this will also be your own proof positive litmus test and will serve as your own personal tangible barometer (not that you should need such verification or affirmation to validate this determination). 

The measuring stick will, however, always be rooted in your courage and willingness to weigh all evidence (which will be presented in literary or verbal forms and/or presented in the theoretical and ideological frameworks of organizations and movements) that is presented and not be shy to render a critique and analysis in order to prove that the presented argument was flawed and lacked evidentiary proof or it had met the standards of truth based on the rigorousness of an impartial investigation. I was led to an academic book authored by Mary E. McGann titled, Critical Thinking and Writing in the Disciplines this book became good training ground for me in becoming a critical thinker and what that entailed.

I grew up between the Pentecostal Holy Church and the Baptist Church faith traditions. The Pentecostal experience was always full of spiritual energy, there were shouting, speaking in tongues, singing, crying, dancing, plenty of testimonies, out loud scripture readings—it was an environment of spiritual electricity (they would congregate what appeared to be seven days a week and the ministers wore the titles of prophets and apostles and each service was like a high powered revival (I am speaking now directly to black folk this was our collective experience)—I would covertly be playing behind my mother's back with my brothers and sisters and with other devious children in the church (you were not allowed to eat candy, talk and definitely not play). These were some long sessions and as a child you tried to make the best of all this preaching; I knew from time-to-time I had to yell out with other members 'thank you Jesus', I would then be safe from momma's wrath (it seemed like she had eyes in the back of her head). 

My mother and other Elders would enter a realm of spirit referred to as the Holy Ghost or become touched by the holy spirit and it was liken to an outer-body experience, which is unexplainable outside of the black Christian holiness experiences and traditions. I know white folk think they understand this, but they do not; this spiritual energy goes back to our ancient African ancestors and was the embodiment of invoking traditional African religious-ethos that made its way through the horrific and horrid voyage known as the Transatlantic Slave Trade, a crime against humanity (they could not kill our spirit) and it survived in our DNA and made its way across the Atlantic Ocean. The Black Christian Pentecostal is a living testimony of our continued connectedness to our African heritage even to this very day the drums, tambourines, the organ and piano and at times the beauty of the black human acapela voices was music to the ears (the human voice by far is the greatest instrument ever created).

I did not arrive at this stage, because, it was something that I initially sought, but I do believe that I was predestined to be one of those free spirited souls that could not be confined by the gravitational pull of proselytizing indoctrination of intended doctrines; of course even this would prove to be to shallow to bind me to accept one single thought as my life path. I met this Zen Master in my life’s journey and he told me that nothing in life was coincidental or accidental (or occurred by happenstance) and wherever, we are in space and time, that is where we are supposed to be and he looked at me and said the universe arranges these things even before our allowed physical carination, and given permission to exist on this plane (in this sphere). 

I looked at him as though, he had lost his mind; he must have detected my lack of comprehension and my inability to process these thoughts at that time. He only said that one day, I would understand that All real lessons have a duality in meaning and interpretation, but must first be understood from the spiritual realm (this was a metaphysical discourse). I was offered a small book titled, Tao The Ching by Lao Tzu, this book of ancient Chinese wisdom and philosophy freed my mind of the western dialectic worldview into accepting the eastern ancient Sages and Gurus wisdom and spiritual principles as having a much deeper meaning and the wisdom therein just felt that it was God talking directly to you.

In 2006, Rhonda Byrne published a book titled, The Secret, she pulled together twenty-four highly touted spiritualist who shared various intellectual and spiritual experiences and involvement in the esoteric, occult and Gnostic schools of thoughts in order to make an attempt to package ancient wisdom that had shaped humanity’s spiritual existences based on the universal principles of good that had touched all cultures, races, nationalities and this knowledge had altered humanity’s orientation to life down through the ages of time—these various spiritual intellectuals shared mystical, mythical, healing, and indigenous knowledge that was rooted in the folklore of ancient civilizations and the benefits of the observance of metaphysical outcomes. Some of them spoke outside of the concepts of organized religion. It was a clear indication that western man had failed and his failure has led to an earthly and human imbalance; it has placed him on a collision course with the universal powers.

I think European New Age thinkers such as Eckhart Tolle who authored the book titled, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment and A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose and even Reverend Rick Warren who authored the book titled, The Purpose Driven Life; these Caucasians have come deeply in contact with our indigenous knowledge and are articulating it on a broader scale, but they must not forget that they have borrowed this wisdom from the fathers and mothers of civilization.  I was given this little pocket sizes book titled, As Man Thinketh by James Allen that I still carry every place I go, it is full of powerful wisdom and jewels and with little doubt Allen had drank from the fountain of the ancient masters and had adopted their universal principles. 

This wisdom affected me differently than the wisdom of Qur'an and the Bible yet, I totally understood that all of this had an interconnectedness with the original divine source although, this wisdom contained in the Tao The Ching left know doubt that it had been passed down my many ancient generations and it even predated the Bhagavad Gita ,it sent me on a spiritual journey, it also predated the 'Pslams of David' and from those pages, I was a changed human being—I truly tapped into my Pineal gland. Energy and power source that has baffled Europeans for over 6,000, but indigenous and original people of the earth within their spiritual customs, rites, sacraments, practices and rituals knew how to alter energy polarities and shift energy sources to transcend into Astro-beings this was the highest form of enlightenment. I balanced this off by being exposed to Ra Un Nefer Amen books titled,  Metu Neter, Vol. 1: The Great Oracle of Tehuti and the Egyptian System of Spiritual Cultivation and Metu Neter Vol. 2: Anuk Ausar, The Kamitic Initiation System.

Erich Von Daniken in his book titled, The Chariots of the Gods, it would be his white Eurocentric intellectualism that put him in denial of the great Pyramids of Kemet (Egypt) were constructed by the indigenous Nubians who had occupied Kemet for over 20,000 years before European intervention, they were the original Egyptians. These recent wars in Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Syria, etc., have led to the theft, looting and discretion of ancient artifacts of antiquity (these assaults were carried out systematically) but let me be clear these artifacts did not belong to the Semitic Arab imposters nor the Europeans and was not part of the Islamic dynasties. 

Black people had established civilizations centuries prior to their arrival on the African continent. Many of these ancient cities like Tripoli, Cairo and Baghdad housed valuable treasures. The Europeans have stolen indigenous peoples cultural artifacts and our linkages with time is in white museums in Paris, London, Berlin, Moscow, Rome, Cyprus, Lisbon, Toronto, etc.. I know the great black archivist and curator Arthur Alfonso Schomburg probably is turning over in his grave at how we have allowed these cultural bandits to steal and house our history and tradition in defiled white institutions. 

My next awakened, there was Nation of Islam minister in Durham, North Carolina named Minister Ray Muhammad (Minister Muhammad and I became good friends) he would teach quite often about the importance of submission and surrendering your will to do the will of God; he had a free willing spirit and was a graduate of a HBCU Texas Southern University in Houston, out of the South Western Athletic Conference (SWAC) of course I have a common bond with all HBCU graduates and my feelings were no different towards Minister Muhammad. Minister Ray Muhammad would often state where you are right now is where you are supposed to be and no one arrives at these spaces and times of their own volition or by osmosis God brought you there (this was leading me towards my evolution into Free Thinking). He gave me a better understanding of Master Fard Muhammad and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad's teachings.

The biggest leap into becoming a Free Thinker, is to allow yourself to move beyond the confinement of dogmas, philosophy, theologies, political bias, etc., which taught me not to permit nor allow exclusivity in one school of thought to captivate my ideological imagination because this will erect and create artificial barriers, which could disallow the appreciating of the diversity and the expansiveness of knowledge and truth. Thus, you will also learn through practical experience and through life trials and error the value and ultimate value of principles that are better understood and received by others as positive examples when observed and lived and reflected as transparent ethics for everyone to see our lives as an open book (we should live our lives as living examples of universal good). 

Free Thinkers are only loyal to their quest to discover the truth regardless of how painful the findings maybe, it is this clarion call that allows us to escape our natural attachment to familiar shared ideologies. But will always demonstrate the ability, as well as determination and willingness to look beyond those safe and comfort zones, which to objectively weigh all knowledge and thought on the larger scale of determining proof. With the Free Thinker’s mindset there are no safety nets that will stand in their way to determining the truth at all cost. Free Thinkers are ordinarily met with skepticism and suspiciousness because, we have been taught from early on to unquestionably accept doctrines and a worldviews that validates and support the status quo.

Yet, the Free Thinkers possess the courage to engage and upstage contrary perspectives to the popular version of the truth (you will pay a heavy personal cost, if you ever choose to become a Free Thinker) will cause them to be ridiculed, isolated, it could even cause more sinister acts. Once the Free Thinker has arrived at this lofty position, it will often lead them to revisited previous held beliefs and debunk them for more sound information and by this stage in their development, they would have learned to put all emotions to the a side—this makes the dismantling and reconstruction process much easier. 

Moreover, admittedly most human beings who are learned and unlearned will never become a Free Thinker, because this is truly a journey less traveled and human beings find it easy to think inside the box, it makes associations more accommodating and it suffices the normalization of this world’s order in spite of injustice, corruption, inequalities, etc., Free Thinkers are revolutionary in their thought patterns—Buddha, Confucius, Zoroaster, Gandhi, Jesus, Mohammed, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Muhammad Ali. They had transcended (or was born) earthly expectations and had moved deep into the spiritual realm, a place that we all should look to obtain and arrive it is the only true gate to freedom. 

This spiritual plateau opens you up to be used by the universal forces of good—honesty, self-denial, forgiveness and leads to the greatest expression of love, which is unconditional love. Free Think is teaching me to understand what love truly means on a much higher level and to forgive is the greatest act of human freedom, to relinquish and free others from our perceptions (in particular those whom we believed have transgressed against us) exonerate them that you might release yourself from an unjust self-affliction of imprisonment and bondage that continues to create cycles of pain and suffering in our conscience and sub-conscience minds. This quest often will immediately become conflictive with a world that was built on deception and "ism". 

We must seek to look outside of this world that was constructed on disinformation and propaganda and have the uncanny ability to reconstruct a worldview that challenges the popular version of the truth in order to create a new societal and personal paradigm. The true Free Thinker innately either already has these skills of possessing the ability to reason and analyze and/or on the journey they are acquired and developed by way of the experience of various Paths in which the Creator or Supreme Being or whatever Higher expression that is the source of your spiritual inclinations and guide that factor into our lives. Let me not sound contradictory; spirituality is beyond the concepts of Supreme Beings or religious concepts and often functions as an independent variable outside of organized religious terminology and phraseology. 

The inclination (of surrendering yourself) to walk your life in a Free Thinker’s space will be a deep evolutionary process for the human being (and was the biggest step that I ever made in my life), it will be more impactful than even the DNA that we inherited from our mothers and fathers (although this plays a factor into our development). However, this goes beyond the meeting of sperm and ova of human biological science. Truly a magnificent God/human and miraculous phenomenon that from an egg coming together with male sperm during conception (new life is formulated) that allows us to extend past our biological substances that was transferred in chromosomes and our nucleus and atomic make up produced an independent human being referred to as our offspring who has a mind and thoughts of their own. 

Yes, their parents shared DNA will always be a part of their human essences. Let me stop here; I was a poor student in science, although I started out as a biology major in college. My Science major peers were serious and disciplined students and I wasn’t at that time in my life. So forgive me for recklessly trying to use a scientific analogy to paint a picture in my life. I was learning about concepts of microbiology and organic chemistry and physics. I woke up during that semester and said what the hell am I doing here and I immediately consulted by academic advisor and changed my major. I often wonder where my life would have been, if I had become a scientist or medical doctor; I know that in life nothing was coincidental and as quickly as that thought entered my brain, my Free Thinking immediately absolved those thoughts. I am doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing; anything else does not exist in my time and space.

President Donald Trump has put himself up against history in which he wants to approach the world from a new geopolitical mindset and desires to attempt to alter and change the international and global rules in which some of his global agenda is not well thought out, but he has patriots in his administration and in place to fill in the gaps for him. Some may view my thoughts on Donald Trump and his New World Order agenda and One World Government agenda as being mere idealistic and lack true pragmatism and I totally understand their unwillingness to consider an alternative perspective, but their apprehension will not prohibited the inevitable of what is going to take place in the world under Donald Trump. Perhaps Trump has not taking into account and doesn't realize that the United States is a declining world power and is steadily being replaced by China who has made serious inroads into solidifying its dominance in Asia and the Asian Pacific realm and has created a global economic prowess throughout the world. And their present day influence is unmatched by western governments including the United States of America (this truly represent a new era political in world history). When the United States dollar forty years ago begin to lose its international economic credibility as the world's reserve currency, it was a clear indication that America as a nation was transitioning into a global downward spiral politically, economically and socially and China based on default and presenting itself as a new world global authority had taking that position and the United States is still in denial of this fact.  The U.S. use to be the number one creditor nation in the world now, it stands as one of the number one debtor nations of the world.

They will get even weaker in next 10-20 years or less when North Korea; Kim Yong-Un is getting very close to acquiring intercontinental ballistics missiles capabilities and Iran is working undercover to acquire full nuclear capability in the very near future; this will bring a new international military paradigm and will dictate a neo-geopolitical relationship with South Korea in which North Korea will attempt to redraw the sovereign boarder lines and force a one united Korea (even if this means going to war) in which China will be an external instigator who will be backing North Korea in this unification of the two Koreas. The protectorate status that United States has historically offered South Korea would have to be reevaluated in lieu of North Korea acquiring the intercontinental ballistics missiles in which they could strike the United States from Asia, because of this potential predicted new political and military arrangement (or acquired military technology on North Korea part) it could prove be explosive, which could be the impetus for World War III.

North Korea has been really aggressive in their launching missile testing program and has been in defiance of international law and because of its relationship with China; this relationship has allowed them to be able to circumvent the United States embargoes and sanctions. They are in bed with one of the most powerful trade partners in the world, which is China and they don't feel the economic affect when it comes to goods and services being disrupted.  The United States Government has systematically duped the American people and the entire globe in general, about the effectiveness of sanctions and embargoes. Some political critics who have alternative media sources are warning us of the global geopolitical implications and predictions that have been put on the chessboard, which is nothing short of alarming; but we have been so dummied down by the Talking Heads and social media and by their disinformation propaganda and we do not have a clue of the pending danger that lie ahead that faces all of humanity. Now, in the grand scheme of things in which, I will cover in the Blog’s content below, it isn't totally about the narrow scope of black and white in these globalization schemes, it is more about the evolvement of political unilateral thinking, that is more rooted in world domination; this is how the neo-alliances are being structured and orchestrated, which involves totally attempting to control the world's resources and impacting the thinking of humanity.

It is to early to make a definitive determination of what the United States international and foreign policy future will be, however, this much, we do know President Donald Trump lack of international diplomatic and foreign policy experience is going prove to be a liability in his decision making ability to steer the United States on a course that would be less antagonistic. He is confronted with how to contain Asian nationalism with China dominating influence in the Pacific realm this world power isn't going anywhere and will continue to expand its influence politically, economically and socially beyond its boarders. China knows that they possess no equals in their dominance over the global economic markets, which continues to allow them to transition into being the defacto world leader in obtaining raw materials from around the world, which no nation can compete economically with them in the modern context of turning those raw materials into manufactured tradable commodities and expanding markets. Although, China had entered into a high-tech production and manufacturing economy, which on the surface, it appears to be a page out of when the United States led the world during the industrial revolution. Where factories and raw materials were the economic model and we witnessed products being made inside the USA and when the U.S. economy was booming. But Alvin and Heidi Tofflers explain this best in their book titled, Creating A New Civilization: The Politics of the Third Wave. Trump is systematically lying to the American people about where the world is right now and denying the economic trends and stages that led to the dismantling of American industrialism and contributed to the fall of America. Trump want the American people to believe that manufacturing is coming back to America let me be the bearer of bad news, it is not going to happen. Trump in his deception and rhetoric is attempting to lead the United States down a dark international path.

Trump and the United States have covertly declared war against China, the first step was him pulling out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) international economic trade agreements. The United States is forcing these new world and global alliance, in which Russia, China and the United States are all rushing to set the template for the future outlook relative to globalization. These nations will redraw the lines of international waters and maritime jurisprudence this will automatically impact weaker and stronger nation's sovereignty. How we understood the geopolitical interest of nations yesterday will no longer be relevant in the new global arrangements. Some of the United States international motivations will be rooted in their concept of attempting to extend and expanded white nationalism. Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson refused to politically distance themselves from Russian President Vladimir Putin, it is because they have a master plan of unifying the world of Eurasia and United States; those former ethnic nations that declared their sovereignty after the Cold War will be once again come under the threat of Russian military aggression and dictates.

Trump has a fixation on destroying Islam not just militant radical Islam, but all Islam (a war he cannot win). He is strategically seeking to wipe Islam off the world’s map. No Islamic nation will be deemed safe from this type of mindset and tyranny; today it is Iran, Yemen, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Iraq on the so-called Homeland Security terrorist list (the Center for Strategic Studies) and the Talking Heads and the political scientist, they are not going to convey the true agenda to the American people that these new alignments are rooted in the principles of global white nationalism. Putin of Russia has the Islamic problem in Central Asia and the former Russian protectorates in which President Richard Nixon warned the European world that Islam would pose the greatest threat to their world domination as they moved into the 21st Century.

Trump found a white allay in Putin who shares his political sentiments about extinguishing the potential rise of Islam and its continued spread in Europe and Asia. This alignment is valuable to Trump's globalization, One World Government and New World Order agenda in which the implications could be another war, if radical militant Islam is not halted. They will strategically pick Iran as a pasty, the war of words between the United States and Iran has been warming up even before Trump became U.S. commander-in-chief. Trump said he has served notice on Iran. Iran response to the threat was that they were a sovereign nation and did not need the permission from the U.S. to make political, economic and social decisions. Trump condemned the covert Iran deal that was initiated by the Obama administration as being a 'bad deal' in which Iran so-called agreed to cut back on its nuclear weapons program aspirations; many believed that this agreement in particular was also tied to monetary ransom money of 400 million dollars paid to Iran as good faith money to get American hostages released. Yet the United States had frozen and seized Iranian money and assets since 1979, when Imam Ayatollah Khomeini initiated the Iranian Revolution. This money has been frozen for over thirty-seven years.

I think Trump is going to rescind part of this Iran deal in order to provoke Iran, but this is going to get interesting because Iran has purchased weapons from Russia, North Korea and China. Trump will find out that being the leader of the so-called free world and running the world is not reality television or his Apprentice show, it is a lot more comprehensive and complex, but the decisions he makes will globally impact the United States present and future course, I truly do not think he understands the magnitude and power he possesses that will impact the entire world. This is not a game. Now, North Korea under the Supreme Ruler Kim Jong-Un will continue to flex his will and military might in defiance of the United States and international law, by continuing to test his missiles program. China will keep this loose cannon in their back pocket, because his 20th century Communist style ruler-ship and dictatorship serves in the long term interest of China who is clandestinely fueling Kim Jong-Un in his rhetoric by taking a quasi laissez-faire approach and simultaneously putting billions of Chinese dollars behind North Korea, thus, making a joke out of United States sanctions and embargoes and trust me China is not concerned about North Korea's human rights record.

This invisible phenomenon (consisting of North Korea) creates an international balance of power without China themselves appearing as an international bully. The United States has become overly consumed with the so-called potential threat of Kim Jong-Un and it is this that is partially driving the United States in what appears to be an unorthodox relationship and partnership between Russia and the United States. Trump understands that in the new strategic international interest he is going to need Russia to halt China's aspirations towards expansion in the China South Sea and beyond, in particular the Philippines and Taiwan and other territories in the South China Sea. Theses disputes have been ongoing and will only become acerbated with these new international alignments that will potentially have to be executed with a weaker United Nations and rules of international law will be less binding. This has the potential to create an international powder keg for the west and the east.

It is not by coincidence that Trump has appointed and nominated all these ultra white nationalist mindsets to his administration. This is a new frontier in the recent modern international context, but taking right out of the playbook of the old white nationalism decree to once again impose race dominance into the international political equation (yesterday it was the Aryan race, the Anglo-Saxon race and today it's a hybrid etho-racial breaded in the United States that are seeking world racial supremacy). They seek to have no opposition to their and Trump’s agenda and these ultra white nationalist and white supremacy, they are not motivated by what is politically correct. Trump has multiply agendas, he unlike most white world leaders he see the handwriting on the wall and he is getting in front of the trouble waters and sees Russia as its great partner.

But Trump is no match for the likes of Vladmir Putin; Putin’s corruption is gangster style he has no loyally to anyone and will cross you in a heart beat; unknowing to Trump, Putin and the Russian government has been selling weapons and military technology to North Korea for decades and even under Kim Yong-Un, he is one of their number one international armament customers. These political dynamics are a triangle of deceptions between China, North Korea and Russia, which North Korea is being deemed America’s so-called number one enemy, but America’s new ally Russia is still supplying all types of military support to North Korea as I write this article in which China also is fully aware of this. What is the common denominator?  These are old communist ideological alliances that still possess international value when it is necessary and politically expedient. Putin and Russia is also selling Iran and North Korea weapons and military technology before the United States imposed sanctions and embargoes, and after U.S. impose sanctions.

He will use the skillset of Rex Tillerson as a Seven Oil Sisters operative and agent (Tillerson is on multi payrolls: Russian, the CIA, Israeli lobby and AIPAC and the Rockefellers) and his ultimate agenda will be to instigate more conflicts in the Persian Gulf by using the CIA playbook to infuse propaganda and disinformation against Iran and sell this bullshit to the American people that Iran poses a national security threat, because they continue to desire to become a nuclear powered nation. If they could take back India and Pakistan nuclear capability they would because they believe people of color are irresponsible and to put nuclear weapons in the hands of a so-called radical and militant Islamic government like Iran will be troublesome to the western world, they see it as a threat to the white world and if Iran acquires nuclear weapons this will upset the white world domination and upstage the balance of power in the Middle East.

Russia has always played by its own international rules and they will not block Tillerson and Trump’s plans (they all are on the same team) to attack and invade Iran because there is oil on the table for Lukoil and Rosneft Russian state oil company and untold personal wealth for Trump, Putin, Tillerson and Exxonmobile in which the international alliances means nothing in lieu of the expansion of global white nationalism. Trump’s concept of patriotism is not tied to the United States sovereignty and him and Putin have declared allegiances to breakdown these artificial barriers, sovereignty and boarders will take on an entire new definition relative to international jurisprudence and they are military prepared to squash any national and international rebellions. Russian troops have been deeply rooted in America’s secret security forces (some of them former KGB agents) and was brought to United States by the ex-CIA director and President George H.W. Bush and the program was continued under Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. They have been secretly part of the United States Central Command and will replace the National Guards and FEMA when domestic disturbance arises inside the U.S. in particular when martial law is declared, it will be contained by Russian forces operating covertly in America (they were systematically chosen because of their ruthlessness and their non-allegiance to Americans citizenry.

No, entity will be allowed to impede their quest for the total completion of the One World Government agenda and the accumulation of wealth, these new global geopolitical strategies will make Iran expendable in the opening out of the United States-Eurasia expansionism and power dynamics. In this new power paradigm schemes, it is about moving the entire world into a new direction; thus, the prior NATO alliances in Western Europe will be forced to surrender some aspects of their previous concepts of what sovereignty meant to their so-called democracies. Trump and his administration do not desire to continue the type of international diplomacy that was still linked to an era in American history known as the Cold War. This time has passed and the international political arrangements have become obsolete and have outlived its purpose and usefulness in Trump’s worldview.
They will invoke fear into the psyche of the American people and potentially line the United States up again for another war just like in Afghanistan in 2001 and in Iraq in 2003, and we know that these were induced wars, which was rooted in international grand theft of Afghanistan poppy plant (or Heroin distribution in which the USSR fought a nine year war against the Mujahedeen over the Central Asian heroin trade and the Russians lost a bitter war) and taking over the second largest oil reserves in the world. George W. Bush and the Bush crime family, they wanted a part of this lucrative heroin trade and with the permission of Russia they agreed that the United States would use its military to fight in the rugged mountainous Afghan terrain to acquire a monopoly over the heroin dope trade coming out of Central Asia.

Russia after a nine year war didn't want anymore part of going back to Afghanistan. They also wanted more control over the Central Asia oil pipeline that involved running oil from the Black and Caspian Seas to Siberia. Now, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is a crook exemplar he will use his official capacity to start wars and simultaneously will be running so much international dope and oil from the around the world and funnel it to Exxonmobile and which to involve in the global theft of natural resources in Africa. They have all the puppet African leaders in their hip-pockets in which our continent will become once again a prime target to be further raped and exploited under this new international direction being put forth by Trump. Africa's colonial masters will come back to this wealthy continent with a vengeance. Tillerson is ruthlessness he didn't become an oil tycoon of ExxonMobil because of business niceties; he understands that business is a declaration of war.

America has become increasingly a nation of black and brown people in which demographers are predicting that in the next twenty-five years the United States will no longer be a majority white skinned nation and this notion is fearful to many in white America and Europeans around the globe. The sexuality of white women and their attraction to the black man have always created all types of social problems in a white supremacy society. The historian J.A. Rogers (1880-1966) has found that these interracial relationships run deep into the historical and modern civilizations anthropological dynamics, the DNA strained of African blood has touched the entire planet. No, other so-called African American historian had gone to these great lengths to document just how far reaching the Negroid linage and human sexuality have played in the history of European, Asians, and in the Americas and their ethnic and racial kinship to the Blackmoors who have racially impacted every nation's culture and history; in which Rogers tediously and meticulous go through ancestral records and historical genealogy by delving into human phenotypes to arrived at proven how wide spread and extensive were the African descendants. His voluminous books titled, Sex and Race that exposes some of racial kinship that has been systematically covered up and the history will literally shock you—I called his research as being the impetus of unlocking unknown global sexuality of black history historical facts, but this is a subject for another time.

I will intentionally digress a bit, but hopefully you all as my readers will eventually see the interconnectedness of my thought patterns; this article main theme was constructed to be a brief overview of some of our black historians whom I deemed important and those who made tremendous contributions to our struggle and I found none more deserving to be mentioned than Joel Augusta Rogers. This nation, the land (and all the U.S. territories) and the resources will always rightfully belong to the original Native Americans and their descendants along with our Moorish ancestors and those Africans who came to America before Columbus according to Dr. John Henrik Clarke (1915-1998) in his book titled, Christopher Columbus and The African Holocaust.

Manhattan Island in New York and the entire Hudson River geographical region was once sacred Native American lands and were part of sacred burial grounds for African Americans and Native Americans. There exist indigenous ancestral spirits rooted in the Gods of vengeance hanging of over New York.  Rhode Island was the greatest slave port in the Western Hemisphere; perhaps like many of you, I once believed that Charleston , South Carolina and Jamestown, Virginia were the two infamous slave capitols of the United States; I was wrong because my research took me to Rhode Island in which more African slaves were imported into this North East slave port) that generational curses have been invoked on New York because of the unjust and unresolved crime; this curse has ‘Karmacilly’ been transferred to the present occupiers who left a trail of blood that sunk into the soil and waterways 500-600 years ago and many of those bodies never received a proper traditional custom burial—it produced traveling spirits. They defiled this territory be erecting the secular structures of the neo Babel Towers called the twin towers or the World Trade Center that sat in spiritual contradiction and outside the spirits geopolitical and the sacred geometry that was defined by the stars and the Gods of the indigenous people decided that they no longer would occupy that space. I am willing to bet you that 9/11 Commission Report did not consider the spiritual causes of what occurred on September 11, 2001.  

They blamed Muslims and radical extremist Islamic terrorist for this devastation, but unless you understood indigenous rites and folklore (even what I am saying and writing now still might be over some people’s heads) this type of phenomenon is not coincidental and is only part of the negative global energy that constantly insures universal balance but those in power have created an universal imbalance; they begin to invoke this energy over 6,000 years ago. 

The indigenous people blood is still warmly flowing as invisible energy and is being kept alive by unknown universal forces and was activated when the two tallest buildings in New York came tumbling down. The Native Americans created an energy invoked by the ancient Gods of fire, but beneath the twin towers on that day, it was an earthquake (that was activated below the earth and where those buildings set, the impact was prescribed to be no further than that indigenous crime scene) that was controlled by spiritual forces above and beneath, the world's capitol of Global monetary deceit. The World Trade Center and 9/11 was not really a terrorist attack; there was an energy that was released through human form in which the universe ordered the deadly destruction of 9/11; the invisible immortal beings their souls are constantly being disturbed and their spirits have never been put to rest and what you witnessed was the embodied spirit of Ancient indigenous Native Americans revisiting with deadly force.

The so-called Arabs who have in modern racial indexing are classified as Semitic people, but the original Arabs from Oman and Yemen were of Negroid lineages in which sixteen of the so-called would be 9/11 attackers were from Saudi Arabia—these Negroid Astatics are the distant DNA ancestral of the same people who crossed the Bering Strait over 16,000 years ago. They have no relationship with the Indo-Europeans whom arrived much later, these people even predated the  Grimaldi man in Europe and Asia (west Asia); Runoko Rashidi (a student of Ivan Van Sertima, the author of They Came Before Columbus), in his works African Presence in Early Asia, bears witness to this history.

The Natives who migrated to the North American continent were direct descendants of the people who presently occupy the land classified as Mongolia (the original Mongols and Ancient Black China: The Mongols, Zhou, Ainu, Jomon, and Huns were a people that had varied skin colors and hues that ranged from red like pigmentation to dark black skin with thick lips and broad noses with kinky hair; but a large majority of the ancient Mongolians had skin colors that were jet black or blue-black (white social scientists have attempted to classify the human race into three categories Negroid, Mongoloid, and Caucasoid these human genetic classifications are artificial and serve to disconnect the original man from his anthropological and archeological ancestry. If you desire further genetic and anthropology evidence, I refer you to visited the people in South Africa called the Khosian people who have an Asian look and you will immediately see our biological kinship with our distance Mongolian and Asian ancestral lineages. These systems of genetic human sociological groupings are meant and designed to fragment black indigenous people who once occupied the entire planet. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad asked the question, 'who is the original man?' His answer: "The Astatic black man, the maker, the owner, cream of the planet earth, father of civilization, God of the Universe".

Some of the Mongolians who lived in the upper most region of the rugged mountains had yellowish like skin (who resembled the modern Chinese and Japanese) more akin to Genghis Khan and would have looked more like the modern Asians, in particular the Chinese—these people were direct linkages to the Eskimos or the Alaskan Inupiat people who are the direct descendants of the Native Americans who populated North and South America. Joel Augusta Rogers who authored a number of books that traces the African genetic and biological presences on all the continents from Europe to Asia and down to the indigenous people of the Americas; (Roger's scholarship by far makes the case that the original man was the black man).

For example, their pseudo-racial indexing of Black Africans from Somali, Eritre, Ethiopia, Zanzibar  and Egypt and most of North Africa and the so-called Middle East nations are considered white and Caucasoid and certain Semitic Africans would be classified as white as well; so when they find it intellectually convenient, they turn black skinned Africans in Caucasians, which to justify racist inspired anthropology. This is what Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop was challenging in many of his works in dismantling anthropological racism in his books:  Nations nègres et culture: De l'antiquité nègre égyptienne aux problèmes culturels, Civilization or Barbarism and African Origin of Civilization Myth or Reality our scholars have always been in a battle against intellectual white supremacy models ,

Minister Malcolm X (1925-1965) while minister and National Spokesman of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad (1897-1975) and Temple number 7 in Harlem, New York on 116th Street and Lennox Avenue; I was told that a lot of the black nationalists scholars and activist would gather at Lewis Michaux (1895-1976) African National Memorial Black Liberation Book Store where lively debates that involved the redefining of African History, which included discussions ranging from black Islam advocated by the black Muslims to black nationalism and Pan Africanism, as well as discussions on the applicability and culture relevance of Marxists socialist theories in the 1960s black liberation struggle. But books and information were important to all of those who had embraced the movement. These young black revolutionaries were studying CLR James book titled, The Black Jacobins: Toussaint L'Ouverture and the San Domingo Revolution  and Frantz Fanon book titled, The Wretched of the Earth, others had ventured into trying to understand Marx's book titled, Das Kapital and the necessity of putting forth class based analysis in which they viewed was more of an antagonistic contradiction than race. Malcolm X had tremendous respect for Roger's commitment to uncovering unknown facts about the Negro and as minister, he would often be heard quoting from the works of J.A. Rogers. I remember being given a copy of his small, but most powerful book titled, 100 Amazing Facts About the Negro; this little book inspired me in desiring to wanting to know more about African Civilizations. I immediately came to understand how Chattel Slavery had such a devastating affect on destroying our connection to our history, culture and heritage. It has left us as a handicapped people because, it systematically robbed us of our land, names, God, religion, which made us blind, deaf and dumb to the knowledge of self—this was one of the greatest crimes ever committed against humanity and 400 years later we are still suffering from this crime.

J.A. Roger explored human genetics, anthropology, archeology, ancient architecture, sociology and located African DNA scattered and dispersed throughout world civilizations and Africans had made immense contributions throughout human history, but do to white supremacy, our contributions have been either deleted or minimized by the intellectual racism of western society. Rogers’ and his work does not get the credit for his contributions in documenting African contribution to world civilizations; the white controlled world of academia played up the black bourgeoisie historians such as the late Dr. John Hope Franklin (1915-2009) who authored one of the most widely read black history text books ever written on African American history titled, From Slavery to Freedom, the status quo deemed his research as being safe and they name buildings after these type Negro academicians; Duke University is one of the most prestigious white universities in the United States of America and they have named a building on campus dedicated to their professor emeritus Dr. Franklin called the John Franklin Center for International and Interdisciplinary Study. But laymen historians such as J.A. Rogers will never get a building named after him, they have chosen to write this black scholar out of history, because his scholarship was to controversial and provocative and he was before his time.

Rogers’work and research predated the Black Power movement and the Afrocentric movement (his work gave inspiration to many young militants and black radicals during the 1960s and 1970s). Dr. John Henrik Clarke, Chancellor Williams, John G. Jackson, Yosef A.A. Jochannan, William Leo Hansberry etc., all of them owe a debt of scholarly gratitude to J.A. Rogers. He authored a number of books in which my favorite was a three volume set titled, Sex and Race, World's Great Men of Color and Nature Knows No Color Line. He was a contemporary of the great Historian W.E.B Dubois who was the first African American to earn a doctorate degree in history from Harvard University in 1895 in which he was a highly trained social-historian who authored a number of books such as The World and AfricaThe Souls of Black Folk, The Suppression of the African Slave Trade, and The Philadelphia Negro, etc., and in 1900 called the first Pan-African National Conference meeting, but Dubois had a contentious relationship with the Pan-Africanist and Black Nationalist leader Marcus Garvey (1887-1945).

Garvey who was a Jamaican born immigrant from Saint Ann's Bey that was inspired by Booker T. Washington’s (1856-1915) life struggle to attain parity for blacks in the south and north in which he illustrated his life in his autobiography titled, Up From Slavery, Washington’s beliefs in technical and vocational training and the building of Tuskegee Institute was so inspiring to Garvey that he came to America to meet Washington, but upon his arrival Washington had died in 1915, a year before his arrival. I do not think Garvey shared in Washington’s conservative and non-confrontational political views on race and on accommodation and integration (Garvey was clear about race, he said race first), but Washington’s economic bootstrap teachings resonated with Garvey’s vision of economic self-sufficiency for Africans living in America and around the world—Garvey’s Black Star Line enterprises (which included the purchasing of ships in order to enter into international trade with Africa and the entire black world) were rooted deep in Booker T. Washington’s views on ‘casting your buckets down where you are’ staying connected to land and farming—providing your own economy and Washington did not allow his worldview to be dominated by racial and civil rights politics and of course he caught a lot of negative criticism from black people and black leaders of his day.

Washington delivered one of his most controversial speeches in 1895 called the The Atlanta Exposition” speech in which Dubois called the “Atlanta Compromise”. Dubois felt this speech became the epitome of Washington’s apologist and apolitical accommodation views for slavery and black oppression that had been committed historically against black people. Washington was Dubois nemesis and perhaps he disliked Garvey (not only because of his brand of Pan Africanism and his African physical features). But because of his liken for the so-called ‘Uncle Tom’ Booker T. Washington; let me be clear to my readers, it took me years to reevaluate Washington and I have come to accept that he was right about a lot of things and now I see more credibility in his political and economic strategies. Both Garvey and Washington shared the value of vocational training and Garvey like Washington thought this would be the best path to gaining blacks political, economic and social justice (ownership and doing-something for-ourselves).

I think Dubois criticisms of Garvey was reactionary and he never attempted to work with Garvey—they both believed in Pan Africanism, but I think where they differed was that Garvey’s Pan-Africanism was undergirded with strict black nationalism principles and tentacles; in particular black land ownership and physically linking up with African nations such as Liberia and creating a transmigration movement back to Africa. Although, Dubois vacillated between various forms of communist theories and integrationist theories, but he was committed to Pan Africanism (but from an integrationist perspective and Garvey view of Pan Africanism was rooted in black nationalism separation) and yet Dubois believed in the importance of the unification of African people who were scattered throughout the Diaspora and he recognized the importance of all African people uniting politically, economically and socially. Marcus Garvey stated ‘Africa for the Africans at home and abroad’; Amy Jacques Garvey book on Garvey titled, Philosophy and Opinions of Marcus Garvey  and the Universal Negro Improvement Association (founded in 1916) were totally committed to a form of black nationalism, which was steeped in African culture and reclaiming a lost history; Garvey looked around and noticed that every other people had a nation and he asked the question, where is the black man’s land and nation? He said he did not see one so he would build one. 

Woodson and Dubois had acquired an Ivy league university education and training at Harvard University and Woodson had evolved into social-history and is famously recognize for being the founder of the research organization named the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, Founder of Black History week in 1926 and authored his most famous book titled, The Mis-education of the Negro first published in 1933. Woodson also use to write as a contributor to Marcus Garvey's magazine titled, the "Negro World". All of these great men were contemporaries Rogers, Woodson, Dubois, Garvey, Hansberry, etc. 

J.A. Roger's published a small powerful book titled, 100 Amazing Facts About the Negro ,but Roger's works for many year were dismissed by mainstream black and white scholars as pseudo scholarship, because he was not a so-called trained historian of not having a university education. Yet, all his works in my opinion were well cited and he gave primary and secondary sources and had a sense of rigorous evidentiary documentation, but most academically trained historians are trained to cite extensive footnotes and endnotes and a bibliography this writing formality somehow lends credibility and acceptability from peer reviews in which this make them into being good scholars. I do not think so. So J.A. Rogers and his research never received the wide acceptability that it deserved because he didn't have a Ph.D, it wasn't until after his death in 1966, that a new generation of scholars started in the 1980s begin to renew interest in Roger's work. This led to Afrocentric writers and scholars such as Dr. Leonard Jefferies, Dr. Tony Martin, Dr. James Smalls, Amos Wilson, Dr. Molefi Asante, Asa Hillard, Mualana Karenga, Frances Cress Welsing, Dr. Naim Akbar, Cheikh Anta Diop, Ivan Van Sertima, etc., these black scholars were standing squarely on the should of J.A. Rogers.

They like Rogers forced white academia to reconsider African civilization in the discussion of a people's contribution to humanity. Caucasian scholars like Martin Bernal who authored the book Black Athena, many African centered scholars condemned Bernal for not going further enough in his thesis relative to the Egyptian or Kemetic influence on Ancient Greece civilizations, but I appreciated this white scholars having the audacity to somewhat depart from the Eurocentric worldview and offered a new insight into verifying what the Afrocentric scholars had researched and put forth the argument that ancient Egypt was Nubian and they had a huge influence on Greek civilization; no one exposed this better than George G.M. James in monumental work first published in 1954 titled, Stolen Legacy.  I was almost kicked out of my major because I challenged the professors about my right to cite Rogers’ work as legitimate history and I was ridiculed by them and one professor flunked me for refusing to stop quoting and citing J.A. Rogers’ works.

They tried to demote his work to sensationalized journalism, but none of them had a written a body of work comparable to his scholarship. Rogers research led to finding African blood in every civilization, we were their as part of a pure African and/or as mixed mulatto and miscegenated bloodline in France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Russian, India, and the far east, etc., who were part of the ancestral lines of European royal families and some of this African blood according to Rogers in the world of intellectual white supremacy these African ethnic lines were often documented as white.  But Rogers’ research uncovered that African blood ran deep in Europe even before Hannibal crossed the Alps and before the Moors arrived 711 A.D. (I am not referring to no Arabs and Berbers these are a Johnny-come-late people), I am referring to jet black Nubian Africans—just look at the Iberian Peninsula of Spain and Portugal, you still can see the African bloodline presences in the dark skinned and kinky hair of the Portuguese and the Spaniards. The African blood also runs deep on the island of Sicily and Malta, the kinky haired and dark skinned Greeks and Italians are all evidence of miscegenation of African blood. These findings by Rogers upset and upstaged how intellectual white supremacy was structured because many of the scientific, military, Catholic popes, European emperors, inventers, statesmen, etc., had Negroid blood flowing throw their veins. Black people, we all owe this scholar a debt of gratitude. I challenge you all during this month of Black History to go back and purchase and read one of the greatest black scholars of all time J.A. Rogers.
