Lets Talk About Race, History, and Social Politics: Question and Answer Session; Bring it On

Lets Talk About Race, History, and Social Politics: Question and Answer Session; Bring it On


This article/blog came about as a series of Internet conversations and debates that this writer has had with a number of Caucasians relative to ancient Kemet (Egypt), slavery, culture, reparations and the historical paradigm that evolves around the African/African American experience. The topic of race, just like the topic of religion, is one of those hypersensitive topics and often people become immediately defensive, aggressive, agitated, angered, closed minded, etc. When discussing such a topic, time and again, human beings seem to possess a need to secure their place in the discussion by consciously and/or subconsciously elevating their race, ethnic group, tribe, etc., into the best positive light possible (I think from time-to-time we all are guilty of this).

We have an even greater need to define the political, economic and social history of our clan at all cost, and often the first casualty of our misconstrued reality, is always truth. Perhaps this is a tragic human defect and it will continue to lead to social discord, if humanity fails to reckon with the planet and rapidly move away from injustice—and man’s inhumanity to man. (Reference: Joel Kotkin: “Tribes: How Race, Religion and Identity Determine Success in the New Global Economy”).
Thus, sometime even at the expense of truth, which becomes a compromise for accuracy, legitimacy and genuineness; this is often where humanity has found itself. Many cultures and races, and even us as individuals, are guilty of fallen into this trap of putting forth nationalism and obscuring the veracity of the historical evidence in order to make our case on the stage of human civilization, at any and all expense. (Reference: Cornel West; “Race Matters”).

This discussion pertaining to Kemet, in particular ignited a controversial debate between myself and approximately twenty or so Caucasians who were Internet Bloggers on the David Icke web site. My thesis centered on Kemet (Egypt) being a society that was originally inhabited and built by the Nubians 3,000 years before Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ben Yosef) and I came to this conclusion by reading the works of white scholars such as H.G. Wells, Will Durant, Gerald Massey, Godfrey Higgins, Albert Churchward, George Frazer, etc., which they either came directly out and stated that Kemet was Nubian or gave strong historical inference that indeed Kemet (Egypt) was perhaps Nubian (black African) land. (Reference: Ivan Van Sertima: Great African Thinkers: Cheikh Diop”).

This writer, equally understands that Kemet (Egypt) had been invaded by external forces and civilizations such as the Greeks, Romans, Turks, Phoenicians, Italians, Arabs, etc., and these invasions led to the history of racial miscegenation in which ‘genotypical’ and ‘phenotypical’ the racial identity and physical characteristics of the people of Kemet began to change from how the original people that once inhabited Kemet use to look. But we should not mistaken the light skinned and Caucasian features of the people today who presently occupy Kemet as the original people, because they are not, but these Semitic tribes are mere imposters and have usurped the history and culture of the original people who once occupied Kemet (Egypt). (Reference: George G.M. James; “Stolen Legacy).

The religion of Islam and Christianity are new religions to this region—the Nubians had mastered moral and ethical principles long before the arrival of so-called “Holy” books were to be introduced into Kemet (of course you must know that all spiritual schools thought had their origin in Kemet and Cush). They were in line with the universal order of things. This writer know and understand that racism is a disease and within the American context, it is incurable and will continue to serve as a divisive variable, until we overcome our denial relative to this race issue, which will continue to work towards impeding human social progress. Moreover, my citing that Kemet (Egypt) was Nubian (African and non-Semitic) stirred a hatred and racist frenzy that appeared to be much deeply rooted than our disagreements about the racial identity of the ancient Egyptians. But their disagreement went to the core of a racist mindset that for centuries have been conveyed in the popular political culture, in particular of the United States and Europe and it is still very much unresolved. (Reference: Yosef A.A. Jochannon; “African Origins of Major "Western Religions").

Many of them detest African people and how dare this so-called American “Negro” attribute the highest cultural civilization—Egypt to people of African descent; this by far is the greatest civilization on earth, which to ever be recorded by man. It was unthinkable that this writer would attribute such loftiness to the Nubian (African-Black) race; to them this was blasphemy of the highest order and absurd, because of the unjust perception and racial bias that some Caucasians hold against people of African descendent; thus, even within the intellectual arena. (Reference: John G. Jackson and Willis N. Huggins; “A Guide to Studies in African History”).

However, this writer does not object to their right to have an opinion on all matters including critiquing the African experience and even disagreeing with me and arguing from a basis of historical interpretation and demonstrating an intellectual dissenting conviction that is rooted in research and scholarly evaluation and assessment. This approach is acceptable and is deserving of intellectual consideration and any critique rendered under these premises would hold a lot more merit. We live in the United States of America where free speech is protected under the First Amendment right of the U.S. Constitution and it does not matter how distasteful or obnoxious the speech may be, it too is protected under the United States Constitution, just as any speech that you and I would find agreeable and therefore to censor one’s right to free speech violates one of the fundamental rights that undergirds our fragile democracy. (Reference: Chip Smith; “The Cost of Privilege: Taking on the System of White Supremacy”)

Many that participated in this dialog could not phantom African Nubians constructing the pyramids of ancient Kemet or at least their racial attitudes did not allow them—because in some instances, it was this experience from which their socialization process took shape and developed from which became their worldview. They do not see African people as being intellectually equal to Caucasian people and in most instances they view African people as being inferior, which is rooted in a social structure of white supremacy—this breeds a system of racism on every level—politically, socially and economically. It also feeds into old culture serotypes that Africa is the Dark Continent and black people gave nothing worthwhile to civilization. (Reference: Tim Wise; “White Like Me: Reflections on Race From a Privileged Son”).

Thus, as you read some of the responses in this article you will see the obvious and many of the questions and answers were ingrained in the socio-politics of racism and the 450 year old dilemma and the 6,000 year conflict that has existed since he has been on the planet, which still speaks to race and racism as being unresolved within the United States of America. This writer did minimum editing and for the most part, is presenting this dialog within the context, grammar and thoughts conveyed by these bloggers in order captivate the mindset and present this thinking to my reading audience of the Keeping Real Think Tank, in particular and the broader reading audience in general, for further investigation. (Reference: Michael Bradley; “Iceman Inheritance: Prehistoric Sources of Western Man's Racism, Sexism and Aggression”).

Bendoon stated: Africans hadn't invented the wheel in 1500AD, are you honestly saying that they had chariots in 2000BC? All this stuff is pure fantasy, Black Egyptians, right sure.

Fahim A. Knight-El: Yes, to a racist Eurocentric mindset, it might be considered fantasy, but the pyramids, science and architecture of Kemet stands as proof positive that the Nubians had a high civilization that is unmatched by any other civilization throughout the annals of time. Your comment is emotional and lacks any scholarly proof. This is the type of thinking that we must uproot because it’s this type of thinking that has helped to take humanity off its course; because it lacks respect for other cultures and civilizations and view western civilization as being superior. Please cite your proof and documentation that “All this stuff is pure fantasy, Black Egyptians".

Kingmob stated: Its a only a foolish statement to a fool. You are a racist, and unable to see beyound color unfortunately. Just remember, that adding a few accomplishments on the merit of color adds no value to the "black" race in the eyes of most objective people.

Fahim A. Knight-El: Cheik Anta Diop in his book titled, “The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality” stated, “Ancient Egypt was a Negro civilization. The history of Black Africa will remain suspended in air and can not be written correctly until African historians dare to connect it with the history of Egypt. In particular, the study of languages, institutions, and so forth, can not be treated properly; in a word, it will be impossible to build African humanities, body African human sciences, so long as the relationship does not appear legitimate. The African historian who evades the problem of Egypt is neither modest nor objective, nor unruffled; he is ignorant, cowardly, and neurotic. Imagine, if you can, the uncomfortable position of a western historian who was to write the history of Europe without referring to Greco-Latin Antiquity and try that off as a scientific approach.” (Reference: Cheik Anta Diop; “The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality”).

Zedd stated: That's probably because the people who espouse the ideas are militant in tone and deride white people at any opportunity. Like you just did in your above post about one white person not having their head up their ass, imply the rest (or mostly all) do. It is also because people like yourself ignore any questions and immediately play the race card on those who question you instead of answering legitimate questions, like the one previously posted about why the Egyptians portrayed themselves as being tan, and yet others as being black and white.

Fahim A. Knight-El: I do not think surveying the historical record and evaluating past evidence, is neither black supremacist nor white supremacist in scope, but if the evidence and the data draw us to a reasonable conclusion about certain aspect of history; how willing are we to accept certain outcomes, even if those finds go against the popular version of the truth? Or do we find comfort for the most part, based on our own cultural socialization process and relegate truth to cultural bias and stereotypes. For example, many Caucasians can not even phantom that the people of Kemet were Nubians and often this position is not based on any scholarly findings or intellectual outcomes, but their disposition is often driven by the raw emotions of racism, which is often rooted in a social structure. (Reference: Yosef A.A. Ben Jochannon; “The Black man of the Nile and Family”).

Rapunzel stated: You have never produced any evidence the ancient Egyptians were Nubians. The Egyptians didn't think they were Nubian since they portrayed Nubians very differently than they portrayed themselves. This has been mentioned before but you fail to address it. Why? Can you explain why Egyptian women were painted yellow if they were jet black? And why Egyptian men were painted red if they were jet black?

Fahim A. Knight-El: The Caucasian history only goes back 6,000 years. Thus, that much is a fact; I have given many sources through out the thread; perhaps you need to re-read the thread. Who is the original man? (Reference: Elijah Muhammad; “Message to the Blackman of America).
Bendoon stated: As opposed to your racist Black supremacist mindset? Look its been proved already in this thread that the Egyptians weren't Black, just leave it out you are only making a fool out of yourself. They even left us some mummies with straight red and blonde hair as proof.

Fahim A. Knight-El: I noticed every time someone challenges you all on this forum relative to this topic; you are quick to use the term "Black supremacist" what ever that means, as to dismiss the facts and truth. This is not Black supremacist, the Caucasian history only goes back 6,000 years (that is a truth and fact) and ancient people that occupied Kemet goes back tens of thousands of years (classified as the lineage of the original man, which is also connected to Cush (Ethiopia)—this is where scientist keep on finding fragments of the original man). Now, you do the math and you review the record of the anthropologist and Egyptologist relative to when the external invaders ventured into Kemet. Moreover, and most of these conquering nations left their print relative to miscegenation on the people of Kemet (From the word Chem Land of the Blacks or burnt faces). All of the races you mentioned or colors are rooted in the fathers and mothers of civilization genealogy, which is the original man. (Reference: Paul Lawrence Guthrie; “Making of the Whiteman: History, Tradition and the Teachings of Elijah Muhammad).

Bill23 stated: you may well be right on alot of things but saying 'Remember the Caucasian history only goes back 6,000 years' is like me saying 'white people built the Great Pyramid of Giza'. dont let your hatred of white racists cloud your judgment.

Fahim A. Knight-El: I think my body of work on this forum speaks for it self. I do not have a hatred for whites. I side more with justice and my topic on Kemet was to correct some of the inaccurate historical information, which in many instances has been racist inspired and was designed to denigrate and minimize the African contribution towards world civilization. Moreover, for me to mention that the Caucasian's history only going back 6,000 years was to counter the claim that the people of Kemet was European as some ill-informed scholars and laymen alike have maintained. This article was not written to elevate the Nubian race over, lets say the Semitic race (or so-called mix racial-ethno who by western standards and racial classification is deemed white) but I was attempting to prove that these people were not the original inhabitants of ancient Kemet (Egypt). So I asked the gentleman, who is the original man? I do no think these questions and statements that I have posed can be considered that I have hatred towards whites. Perhaps that assumption is a bit unfair. (Reference: Ella J. Hughley; “The Truth About Black Biblical Hebrew-Israelites (Jews) ).

Blind_raven stated: You are the one putting words in peoples mouths. He was putting very reasonable proof with his source being the artwork that the ancient Egyptians themselves left behind. All he said is that if Egyptians were black, then why did they paint themselves so radically different from the Nubians as a standard? No where did he make any claim that they were Caucasian, only that there is a difference. In fact to quote his words: "that the ancient Egyptians were 100% black". The 100% black implies that he accepts there is some black in them.

Fahim A. Knight-El: Perhaps you do not understand what the word implied and inference mean. He did not have to come right out and say that Ancient Kemet was Caucasian in its ethnicity, but his various post gave an intellectual suggestion that they were. No. we do not have to put words in people's mouths. So, before the miscegenation of Kemet took place, what was the racial identity of the people who occupied what is presently called Egypt by the Greek invaders? Where is your proof that they where not Nubians? I have listed my sources in the above post or are you to hiding behind a Eurocentric frame of reference. (Reference: John G. Jackson: “Introduction to African Civilization).

Blind_raven stated: I know exactly the difference between the two words, and you make inferences all day that everyone on this forum is a white supremest trying to keep black people down. There are more races then the Whites and the Black, and you do not seem to realize this. You are once again throwing around white and no one said they were. You are the one confused if someone could imply that they believe the Egyptians have Nubian ancestry in them, and you infer that they are racist for not accepting that Egyptians were full blooded Nubians. Once again I ask you to explain why the Egyptians chose to paint themselves in a different tone then the Nubians.

Fahim A. Knight-El: Already answered this question; no need to re-entertain or revisit.

Kingmob stated: LOL, you are a racist, no matter how many quotes you try to bring up in order to defend your racist stands. It makes no difference if you are black or white if you make excuses for yourself in order to elevate one color over another.

Fahim A. Knight-El: Relaying historical facts is not based on racial superiority. You just do not have the intellectual tools to debate this topic, and it is a copout, to yell that I am racist and have nothing of substantial to offer to this discussion relative to Kemet. Thus, that is the easy way out; I cite sources and references as documentation and verification (third party independent) of myself. Perhaps you need to be schooled on research methods and what it means to present an empirical argument (based on what can be counted and measured). See you are blowing hot air and have no scholarly defense for your emotional position relative defending your anti-Nubian stance as it pertains to the people of Kemet. Perhaps you do not know that this debate is about whether Kemet was ethnically Nubian. I stand by the many scholars of various disciplines who maintain that historical contention. I asked the question, who is the original man?
This discussion is not about elevating one race of people over another, but it is a healthy conversation to hear what others have to say on this topic; although I might still disagree when it is all said and done. I believe based on my research that ancient Kemetic people where of a Nubian strain. Sir, that is not racist because other scholars have wrote and authored books and scholarly articles espousing the same. Your argument has been deduced to shallowness and it deconstructs itself because it is more rooted in ignorance and possess little to no content relative to the discussion about Kemet. There is no defense for ignorance. But I would like to have an intelligent conversation with you, if you are serious about debating the history and culture of Kemet. (Reference Anthony Browder: "African Contribution to Civilization").

Fahim A. Knight-El: You are trying to hide behind a non-question that has been answered by scholars over and over again. For example, the native Americans and other ethnic cultures painted their faces and bodies for ritualistic ceremonies and at other times for festive celebrations, i.e., they did this to admonish the Gods, war games, marriages, child birth, honoring the changing solstice, etc., They used elaborate symbols and rituals to honor Ra and Ptah—some of this is covered in the Book "Cometh forth by Day" (the Egyptian Book of the Dead). You are looking at the painting of images from the ethnic racial lens of Eurocentric and White Supremacy and really I should not be even be dignifying this type of racist nonsense. Kemet due to racial miscegenation by external nations and after many outside invasions from the Romans, Greeks, Turks, Arabs, Italians, and Phoenicians, etc. took on an entirely new racial identity and classification.

This phenomena came much later in the history of Kemet, which we witness Kemet ethnically transition from a Nubian society into a lighter skinned mulatto people that resembled the Arab imposters who occupies modern Egypt today (they are not the original people). But they the Arabs are new people along with the religion of Islam they brought to Kemet. Now, the Zionist Jews have even further confused the ethnicity of these people in this equation who presently live in North Africa and the so-called Middle East as being Semitic (a mix race of Mediterranean region people) and languages, but fail to tell you that these people are Johnny-come-lately inhabitants of that region and has little kinship with original Nubians who occupied Kemet of yesterday (refer to “Destruction of Black Civilization” by Dr. Chancellor Williams). Your argument has no validity. Once again the Caucasian history only goes back 6,000 years. (Reference: Chancellor Williams: “Destruction of Black Civilization).

Rapunzel stated: You haven't answered my questions at all except to assert, without any evidence that the colours the Egyptians painted on the walls was due to some ritual practice which you have not been able to identify. I suppose this is a better excuse than the Afro-Centrist view I have heard which says that white archaeologists went round repainting all the figures on the tomb paintings! I have never said or even inferred that the Egyptian civilisation was Caucasian. You are the one who seems to be obsessed with race not I. You seem to think that humanity is composed of only two types of people: African blacks and white Caucasians and if the Egyptians are not black then they must be Caucasian. I know of no-one else who views the history of the human race in the rather strange way.

My mindset is not shaped by a Euro centric ideology; it is shaped by what can be observed and proved. As for your authorities, apart from two amateurs from the 19th century, they appear to be Afro-centrists who parrot the same line. It may have become fashionable in some academic circles to pander to these views due to fear of being labelled a racist but in my opinion this is craven cowardice. Facts are facts no matter how much they upset some people.
The ancient Egyptians clearly distinguished Nubians in their art. Why do you think they did this? The ancient Egyptians appear to have been a Mediterranean type people with an admixture of black genes which is what would be expected. They were not racist and the colour of the skin was not important to them. The most important thing was to be Egyptian. What modern Egyptians are is not the issue and need not be discussed.

Fahim A. Knight-El: Racism is a mindset that considers black people as a group as being inferior to whites because of physical (‘genotypical’ and ‘phenotypical’) traits. The racist further believes that these physical traits are detriments of social behavior and moral or intellectual qualities, and ultimately presumes that this inferiority is a legitimate basis for inferior social treatment of black people in society.

Dr. Asa Hilliard who authored book titled, “Reawakening of the African Mind” stated, “mental bondage is invisible violence. Formal physical slavery has ended in the United States. Mental slavery continues to this present day. This slavery affects the minds of all people and, in one way, it is worst than physical slavery alone. That is, the person who is in mental bondage will self-contained. Not only will that person fail to challenge beliefs and patterns of thought which control him, he will defend and protect those beliefs and patterns of thought virtually with his last dying effort.”

You keep mentioning a so-called Mediterranean type people; could you please give us the ethnic and racial classification of these people. When I last checked Kemet (Egypt) sits on the African continent only a small portion borders the Mediterranean Sea. There is no such thing or unless you are grouping the people of Greece, Italy, Turkey, Spain, Israel, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Lebanon, etc., under one ethnicity and one racial classification, which you call Mediterranean people. This assertion is ridiculous and has no bearing on how these people of these sovereign nations identify themselves. Egypt is in Africa and it has always been in Africa, what part of that geography that you do not understand. (Reference: Asa Hilliard; “Reawakening of the African Mind” ).

Rapunzel stated: There is evidence of very ancient man in Pakistan and Asia and there is no agreement between scientists as to where the original humans came from whether they arose in one place and spread out or whether they arose in several places at more or less the same time. Perhaps you should read more. Even if mankind originated in Africa as you maintain how do we know that these humans had black skin? Chimpanzees live in Africa and have pale skin but are protected by their layers of hair. Early man also had layers of hair so it's not unreasonable to question the colour of skin that early man had.

It depends what you mean by "history" and what you mean by "Caucasian". Are you saying there were no humans at all in Europe until 6000 years ago? You are trying to explain away the contradiction between the paintings the Egyptians made of themselves and your belief that the ancient Egyptians were black. I am quite aware that some cultures have painted colourful designs onto their bodies for various ritualistic reasons but I look forward to your explanation, using ancient sources only, that this is the reason high class Egyptian women were painted yellow/cream. It's noticeable in the paintings that working women were painted slightly darker. Obviously they were forced to be out in the sun a lot whereas wealthy women could stay inside or in the shade.

I'm very familiar with the Book of Coming Forth by Day. Nowhere does it say that whole body colours were changed for ritualistic reasons. You call what I am saying "racist nonsense" but you have provided no proof that the ancient Egyptians were 100% black. Nor have you given me an explanation as to why the Egyptians clearly painted themselves totally different to the way they painted the Nubians. My argument has validity; yours comes from wishful thinking

Fahim A. Knight-El: Yes, I did reference the Torah and you have not giving anything to refute the testimony. Thus, I gave you the lineage and I am waiting for you to cite your sources and lay out the lineage of the people of Kemet. The Caucasian history only goes back 6000 years. So we do know this much the original people of Kemet were not Caucasians and we further know this much the Nubians have a much older civilization than western man. So what was the likelihood of the people of Kemet being Nubians, as opposed to Caucasians (I know historian Erik Von Daniken said the ancient pyramid builders dropped out of space). Second point: I can point to all the works of Dr. Cheik Anta Diop and Dr. John Jackson's works in which both of these scholars have done monumental work in anthropology, Egyptology, archeology, genetics, race, paleontology, etc. and have verified that Kemet was a Nubian culture. Here is another good source "Destruction of Black Civilization" by Dr. Chancellor Williams. He traced how in Kemet the darker skinned original people were pushed to the south. Now, we also know this much for a fact, the people that occupies Egypt today are Johnnie-come-late imposters along with their Semitic kith and kin those who called themselves Jews. You still did not answer the question, who is the original man? Please stop giving me these abstract—no answers. (Reference: Chancellor Williams: “Destruction of Black Civilization).

Thelonious stated: That book has been widely discredited. Here, for example, is one of many claims that G.M. James' book is fraudulent:
James's 1954 book 'Stolen Legacy' is a deliberate perversion of history to support the false claim that black Egyptians were the true originators of Greek philosophy. James's unsupported theories have been taken as fact by many people unfamiliar with Greek history. - From the above link.

Fahim A. Knight-El: No. I disagree, there is no doubt that Plato, Socrates, Aristotle and many more Greek philosophers who originated Greek philosophy were influenced by the Sages of Kemet either directly or indirectly; there is proof positive that the Greeks stole (or may be the most proper way of saying it is that the Greeks borrowed) a sizable amount of its mythology from ancient Kemet; surely ancient Kemet predated Greek civilization by some thousands of years.

Some white and western academics took issue with the entire Afrocentric movement of the late 1980s and the 1990s. Many Afrocentric intellectuals and scholars used George G.M. James book as one source, which to disapprove an intellectual worldview that was rooted in white supremacy ideology and challenged old norms that advocated that the world evolved around Europe and western civilization.

However James' work predated the Afrocentric movement by 30-40 years and he had garnished a sizable amount of scholarly credibility prior the Afrocentric movement embracing his scholarship.

The Zionist Jews and Black Nationalist scholars were deeply at odds with each other in the early 1990s; in particular after Reverend Jesse Jackson presidential run in 1984, in which Zionist Jews and even Jackson eventually repudiated Minister Louis Farrakhan and falsely labeling him anti-Semitic, but black America who had been accustom to following the dictates of the Zionist Jew, bucked on the Zionist and continued to embrace Minister Farrakhan at the disapproval of Zionist forces (this position furthered the rift).

Also this position angered the Zionist Jews and created a further political, economic and social wedge between two people—Zionist Jews and Blacks who had been traditional allies. These disputes played themselves out on various fronts; in particular after the Nation of Islam Historical Research Department published the controversial book titled, "The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews" (which was adopted by the African centered movement) and right after that the Zionist attacked one of the big named Afrocentric professors from Wellesley College in the New England area named Dr. Tony Martin who dared to use the Nation of Islam book as supplemental reading inside his classroom.

But there were Zionist agents planted in Dr. Martin's classroom who had an objective to disrupt this peaceful academic setting. This event led to Dr. Martin publishing a book titled, "Jewish onslaught" and few a years later his colleague, the Zionist scholar Mary Lefkowitz wrote the book titled, "Not Out Of Africa" which she attacked professor James as a pseudo historian and accused him of fabricating the history of Kemet to favor the Nubians.

Lefkowitz made every attempt to construct Greek and Roman society as being almost independent of Egyptian (she tried to take Egypt out of Africa and place Kemet in the Middle East and ethnically labeled the people as Semites) influence and at best it was perhaps and equal cultural exchange between the two societies and the two European societies were not as interdependent upon Kemet as James maintained.

Mary Lefkowitz felt that James historical accounts were the basis and the premises from which the African-centered theories rested; thus, if she could discredit James this would dismantle the intellectual foundation of the entire African centered movement. James was just one scholar of this intellectual movement and all of his contentions were well cited. There is much more to this, but let me put a pin in this for now. (Reference: Tony Martin: “The Jewish Onslaught”).
RR X Stated: Scholarly? "I make no claims to being a scholar - only that I found it amusing that you would promote an Afrocentric theory by using authors who claimed Egypt for the white man, as your proof that Egypt was exclusively Nubian. I mentioned India and last time I checked that wasn't in Europe."

Fahim A Knight-El: If the Afrocentric is speaking the truth; then truth is the truth. It does not matter who the truth teller is, ethnic or racial factor or variable do not lend more credibility relative to a fact of truth. Thus, your above comment further predisposed your unwillingness to consider scholars and their scholarship just because you have placed the label "Afrocentric" subtly implying and with the inference that this is something negative and not worthy of intellectual consideration.

RR X Stated: "You claim to be a scholar yet you don't seem to be aware that Knight and Lomas were writing that Hiram Abiff was a real person in history because they claimed to have found his mummy - this does not support your Osiris analysis. Knight and Lomas also have a book out called 'Uriel's Machine' where they argue that all sciences had their root in Western Europe - a position which does not correspond to your Khemit hypotheses"

Fahim A Knight-El: Whether Knight and Lomas consider Hiram Abiff as a real person or not, it is inconsistent with the Masonic teachings of the majority Grand Masonic Lodges and their Jurisdictions within the United States, in particular within the Ancient Free and Accepted Masonic body and the Prince Hall (Free and Accepted Masons). Now! I have access to many official Masonic Monitors from both the Scottish Rite and the York Rite side and I have been involved in Masonic research for a very long time. Speculative Masonry and all Masonry teach and view the story of Hiram Abiff as a SYMBOLIC and MYTHOLOGICAL figure. Moreover, the character is inconsistent with the biblical interpretation and every Master Mason that is raised in the Masonic ritual is taught that fact. There is a biblical Hiram described as Hiram of Tyree, but this is not the Masonic Hiram; yet this Hiram is spoken about within mythical legend of the building of King Solomon Temple. All the major Masonic Historians ranging from Manly P. Hall, Albert Pike, Albert Mackey, etc., teaches that Hiram Abiff is a symbolic character. Where did they find the mummy in Kemet? Perhaps it is King Hiram of Tyree (to separate Masonic individuals). (JSM Ward; “Who is Hiram Abiff”).

RR X Stated: "YOU claimed that Blavatsky traced everything to Egypt in Isis Unveiled yet the passage YOU quoted if YOU bothered to read the rest of the page said that Egypt and Ethiopia were colonized from India. I'm not saying if that is true only highlighting how your scholarship decided to stop reading after you felt your point had been proven. If YOU bothered to check just the contents page of that book you could have verified everything I said (that is of course if you have the book and weren't just parroting someone else’s work). I read the Blavatsky passage that was provided and the following sentences contradicted what YOU claimed it said. That is poor scholarship if it can even be called that"

Fahim A Knight-El: Yes: I quoted Madam H.P. Blavatsky words accurately and precisely relative to her comment about Egypt (Kemet) feeding and enlighten the world in culture. The quote is not out of context nor have I added anything to Blavatsky words. However, if you wanted to make a different scholarly argument that is your right and prerogative. The original Dravidians inhabited India long before the imposters that occupy India to today. No, doubt India and China are ancient civilizations (I am surprised to hear a Eurocentric at least admonish that point). But Kemet (Egypt) has the oldest recorded civilization known to humanity. Yes, the Nubians. We reject the Greek names of Egypt and Ethiopian—these are the names giving by the colonizers. (Reference: Madam H.P. Blavatsky; “Isis Unveiled”).

"RR X Stated: Nobody said Egypt was in the middle east. lol."
Your inferences were good enough for me because many of the Eurocentric scholars have suspended Kemet (Egypt) in the so-called Middle East and your argument defense resemble the mindset of your brothers. "I never denied that. I only pointed out that the authors you cited (like Blavatsky) stated that Egypt also either borrowed or was influenced. Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva predates Osiris, Horus, Isis."

Fahim A Knight-El: REALLY!: You did not cite any proof of your claim; I have given you many references and sources for all of my contentions; on almost EVERY POINT I made there is a citation and scholarly documentation. You are writing just to sooth your large ego. WHAT IS YOUR ARGUMENT? PLEASE STATE YOUR POSITION, but right now you are just taking a reactionary position.

RR X Stated: "For a so called scholar her knowledge of ancient Greece was not of a particularly high standard and she should refrain from any Masonic comments in future as she clearly doesn't know what she's talking about. My argument is not the same as hers because I never stated my argument. I am not denying the Egyptian influences within Christianity, Ancient Greece or Rome only your statements of Egypt being the beginning point."

Fahim A Knight-El: You will not get an argument from me on that point. We are in agreement about Mary Leftkowitz inept and her poor Masonic worldview. Amen! (Reference: Mary Leftkowitz; “Not Out of Africa”).

RR X Stated: "Let me now state the main problems with your research - it's nothing new. If you bothered to check this site before posting you will have already seen how citing Kersey Graves won't go far. The solar mythos has been argued a million times on this site (and I actually agree that Christ is a composite character). And the scholars you cited will hold no weight as they are theosophists and Freemasons who have always been using opposing arguments to Christians. It seems to me that you've only recently come across this information and field of research as your article is not very well thought out and the scholarship is poor. You probably recently came across Zeitgeist."

Fahim A Knight-El: This was the most laughable and ridiculous point you made. Let me start by saying this THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN. The majority of every thought, thread, idea, philosophy, etc., on the site is just recycled information, but that does not compromise intellectually credibility. For example, what might be old information to you could be new information to someone who has not heard or come in contact with a source of information. So, the terms "Old and "New" is RELATIVE. You are really funning; you stated: "You probably recently came across Zeitgeist." Really! Will not dignify the comment.
You got to come better than what you are presenting, which is nothing but a recycle Eurocentric argument

Bendoon stated: Germany pays around 1 million Euros a year to Israel 64 years after WW2, a child born today in Germany will be paying towards this compensation as soon as they start work in 16 to 20 years time. How absurd is that, that people who weren't even alive when a crime was commited will have to pay compensation when all the victims will be dead.
Only Jews could dream up such a disgraceful scam. Whats the difference between that and African Americans asking for compensation for slavery ? none except slavery was a lot longer in the past.

Fahim A. Knight-El: Reparations as a topic is very close to my heart as an African American and as a descendent of slaves. But here are a few brief thoughts that I have on the topic and perhaps someone on this enlightened forum need to write something in depth on the topic of Reparations. We will never back down from such a discussion. Chattel Slavery wasn’t anything created in Hollywood, it was the real deal and this movement isn’t based on a historical hoax nor is it an unjust financial shakedown.

We as Africans of the Diaspora and the descendants who survived the most brutal acts of man’s inhumanity to man, have been inspired by our ancestors to seek justice; moreover, our ancestors were kidnapped, raped, robbed, murdered, etc.—Chattel slavery endured from 1619-1865, (although the Transatlantic Slave trade was outlawed in 1807) for 310 years this was an accepted economic arrangement. It was slave labor that built the economic foundation of the United States and the present day white Americans and their European brethrens are the private and corporate beneficiaries of the legacy of slavery. The Reparations Movement is not anti-America, but the majority of Black Americans who are sane and in their right minds views it as a call toward achieving historical justice and righting a historical wrong.

Reparations; We as Africans of the Diaspora and the descendants indeed survived the most brutal acts of mans inhumanity to man, thus, there are many around the country that have been inspired by our ancestors to seek justice. Moreover, our African ancestors as I stated above were kidnapped, raped, robbed, murdered, etc., and it was slave labor that built the economic foundation of the United States and the present day Americans and their European counterparts such as: Spain, Portugal, Great Britain, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Italy, etc.

All of these European nations were the beneficiaries of this forced labor arrangement and should be mandated by the United Nations to pay reparations to African-Americans based on their participation in the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the Middle Passage. All the said nations are the private and corporate beneficiaries of the legacy of slavery and this much is undeniable.
The reparations movement is based on a proposed solution of correcting a historical wrong and amending that wrong by compensating the descendants of this human tragedy.

The majority of American scholars such as Kenneth Stamp, Stanley Elkins, Herbert Aptheker, John Hope Franklin, W.E.B. Dubois, etc., agree that blacks in this country (in the United States and the Americas) arrived as slaves and the present generation of blacks is here based on that historical tragedy. Yet, we are 150 years removed from slavery and although, the topic of Reparations has been echoed throughout American History and for the most part it has stalled because blacks lack the political lobby and the financial wither-all too seriously sway this racist nation to engage in a serious conversation relative to the Reparations debate.

President Bill Clinton was prepared to issue African Americans in this country an official United States Governmental apology for the wrongs of slavery in the 1990s, but it was later deemed politically expedient for the president to remain quiet on such topic and not issue Africans an official government apology. I assume his legal advisors, advised him not to do this because this admission of guilt perhaps could be used by Africans in their legal quest for Reparations and legally hold America liable to pay Africans living in America a 150 year old outstanding debt.
The Southern Baptist, a predominantly white Christian association, a few years ago had the humanity and the proper spirit of God to admit the wrongdoings of the Christian church in slavery. They did not go to the grave yard and issue this apology to the dead, which would have been partially suffice, but the church issued the apology to the living ancestors of those who lived and died under the evil institution of slavery.

U.S. Representative John Conyers, a Democrat of Michigan (presently chairman of the Judicial Committee) has introduced into Congress a Reparations Bill titled H.R. 40, which is in theory, is a fact finding committee offered to study the possibility of Reparations for the descendents of Africa. Chattel Slavery still remains the greatest crime that was ever committed against humanity. The United States Congress recently issued black descendents of slaves a weak official governmental apology, but made no offer to repair the historical damage.

In reality, we do not need a fact finding committee, here we are the sons and daughters of Africa who have been robbed of the knowledge of self, snatched from our native land, made inferior, unjustly persecuted, destroyed our family bonds, etc., in the name of greed and capitalism.
Throughout the history of black America there have been movements and leaders that took up the fight to advocate for Reparations. For example, Marcus Garvey, the black nationalist and founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), W.E.B. Dubois and his Pan-African Congress Movement, Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam, Paul Cuffee, a Boston ship builder who was one of the earliest exponents of the Back to Africa Movement, The Christian ministers Martin Delaney and Henry Highland Garnett, etc., also were early exponents of the Reparations Movement.

They all either in aggressive politics or passive politics did raise the question of Reparations for the African descendents of those who suffered under chattel slavery. Randall Robinson, the former Executive Director of TransAfrica, a political lobbyist group that advocates on behalf of the interest of Africa in Congress wrote perhaps one the most definitive books on the subject of Reparations titled, "The Debt: What America Owes to Blacks", which explores and names the public and private companies and their present day subsidiaries that were financially and corporately historically tied to Chattel Slavery.

For example, it was slave labor that brought untold wealth to Phillip Morris Brothers Tobacco, J.R. Reynolds Tobacco, Ligget and Myers Tobacco, American Tobacco, which allowed the Dukes to accumulate, as well as other private and corporate entities untold financial wealth. The United States Government and private U.S. corporations are guilty of being active participants and collaborators in the slave trade; moreover, no amount of money could ever repair the irreparable damage that was perpetrator against black humanity. Slavery was the greatest act of negligence ever committed on one race of people and all those who played a part are considered financially liable.

The only thing they initially said that we were legally entitled to was 40 Acres and a Mule. If our great, great, great grandparents did not receive this promise yesterday, then the debt still remains outstanding. It is then still owed by the federal government to the African descendants of America. There is a way to determine if your ancestor was a slave and if they ever received their land and a mule. If they did not, then that is a debt owed by the U.S. Government in 2009. Could you imagine the value of 40 acres of land and all monetary interest that has compounded.
I am a supporter of Reparations and view it as just cause, but not withstanding the reparations movement has had both its internal and external critics from both the white community and the black community and there appear not to be any happy medium. (Reference: Randal Robinson: “The Debt: What America Owes Blacks”).

Bendoon stated: What a load of ignorant self centered, self pitying crap.People have suffered just as much through all history, last century 70 million Chinese were killed by their own Government as were 30 million Russians. Why don't you just drop the self pity, like Bill Cosby said it just holds you back, blaming someonelse for all your problems.

Fahim A. Knight-El: The Russians and the Chinese (the Russians have Russia and Chinese has China) were not robbed from the base of their feet to crown of their head. They have a common culture, language, and land. You are truly missing the point and your argument is very emotional. We lost over 50 million Africans during the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the Middle Passage and there was no system of evil that was comparative to Chattel Slavery (1555-1865), which lasted for 310 years (three centuries). This was one of the greatest criminal acts ever recorded anywhere in human history. Thus, because of this tragedy hundreds of millions of African people have been scattered throughout the Diaspora and are lost to the knowledge of self. When you rob a people of their language and land, it is the basic ingredient for culture destruction and it cuts them off from a tradition that is rooted in the power of memory and which is design to give them a historical reference point that connects them to something much bigger than themselves.

Slavery emasculated that sovereign right to Africa and now people of African dissent are left scattered as vagabonds of France, United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, Italy, United States, (alien nations and cultures), etc. Bill Cosby is one voice and he is entitled to his opinion, but our ancestors are crying out for justice and we have the job, duty and responsibility to never allow ourselves nor the historical perpetrators to overlook this human tragedy in name of trying to minimize the social, political and economic damage caused by Chattel Slavery; by espousing ignorance and using glossy diversionary tactics to confuse the issue. We must have an honest conversation about race and racism and allow the chips to fall as they may. I hope this response clarifies for you our position and we are not dealing from a basis of emotionalism. (Reference: Walter Rodney: “How Europe Under Developed Africa”).

Bendoon stated: Arabs took far more slaves from Africa than Europeans ever did, over a far longer period. They castrated the men and used the women as sex slaves. What about the Jewish slave ship owners ? When you start asking them for reparations you might get some respect. Till then you are just a working a scam on whitey, an easy target.

Fahim A. Knight-El: This is what you do not understand. You have to at first admit that Chattel Slavery did take place and once you can get out of this state of denial and admit we have problem; thus, only then can we pursue a possible course towards a solution. This much of your argument is valid, which is yes the Arabs under Islam in the 8th Century created the Trans-Sahara slave trade and they transported Africans across Africa into the Middle East as slaves and they are guilty and in complicit of slavery by also dispossessing Africa and its people of their humanity. But Islamic missionaries and Arab slave makers based on the principles of the Qur'an had a very different form and system of slavery (their slavery was not equivalent to Chattel Slavery) than the Christian missionaries.

For example, you might find a Senegalese Muslim from West Africa and although Islam is not the indigenous faith, however you can see that these people that accepted Islam did not lose their historical and cultural reference point. But the infusion of their African culture is well intact and interacts side by side with Islam. Islam did not destroy or wipeout many of the African customs and traditions. Thus, in many ways it complimented African folkways, mores', values, customs, traditions, etc. Yes, the Arabs are part of the reparations equations and they too are guilty of raping and robbing Africa in the name of Islam. Yes, the Jews were African slave merchants, brokers and financiers of the African Slave Trade and they too are part of the reparations equation. The Nation of Islam historical Research Department published one of the most definitive books on the Jewish involvement in the African Slave Trade titled, "The Secret Relationship between Blacks and Jews".

Last but not least, African nations themselves who worked in alliance with the Europeans who captured Africans from the Hinterlands and sold them to the slave merchants are also part of the reparations equation. I do not know where you are getting your information, but you are truly misinformed about what the reparation movement entails. It is not just an inclusive movement aimed at financially shaking down Europeans. Money is just a portion, but there is much more to this tragedy than just financial compensation. Black America had a Gross National Product (GNP) over 800 billion dollars last year, which would make us the 12th or 13th richest nation on earth, if we were a sovereign independent nation. So you are not talking about a people who do not have the ability to do for themselves. Sir, this is about legal justice and fostering this issue on the table of the United Nations as a human rights violation and eventually pushing it all the way to the world courts. Now! I am not in the business of continuing to argue with ignorance. (Reference: Edward W. Blyden; “Christianity, Islam and the Negro Race”).

Rapunzel stated: No you didn't. You gave me the mythical lineage from the Hebrew Bible.
I don't know; neither do you nor do we know who the "original woman" was, if there was one. It has never been proved that mankind originated from just two people.
I am trying to say that the Egyptians were not exclusively Black, nor were they Caucasians, if by that you mean white. The world is not divided between black and white you know. Were the ancient African Libyans black? They were painted as paler skins than the Egyptians. The Egyptians did not represent themselves as black though some of them undoubtedly had some black blood in them. One of the Mentuhotep pharaohs was married to a Nubian princess. The Egyptians were not racist and married into numerous different peoples.
Around 730 BC Egypt was invaded by Nubia and a line of Nubian pharaohs took over for 75 years

Fahim A. Knight-El: I have answered your questions over and over again. I have deconstructed the first fallacy that you have implied relative to the inference that ancient Kemet was Caucasian, which is the covert root of your argument and you are attempting to use intellectual distractions to shield a mindset that has been shaped by Eurocentric ideology. I have given you facts, but you insist upon giving us undocumented rhetoric. Here are my sources.

Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story; Unmasked and Uncovered

Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story; Unmasked and Uncovered

By Fahim A. Knight-EL

My wife and I went to the movies this past week to view Michael Moore's new documentary titled, "Capitalism: A Love Story". Most people who seriously study the plots and ploys of the Invisible Rulers, as well as tracking global international economics were highly disappointed in how far short the film failed in telling the American people the unadulterated truth. Let me start off by setting the tone of this article/Blog for my readers by quoting the former Congressman Louis T. McFadden of Pennsylvania Who in the 1930s served on the Housing Banking and Currency Committee.

McFadden stated, “Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupted institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Banks hereinafter called the Fed. The Fed has cheated the Government of these United States, and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the Nation’s debt. This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of the United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our government. It has done this through the defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Fed, and through corrupt practices of the money vultures who control it. Some people think that the Federal Reserve Banks are United States Government institutions. They are not Government institutions; they are private monopolies which prey the people of these United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers, foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers, and rich and predatory money lenders.”

Perhaps it might be a legitimate assumption that Michael Moore just does not know, who is actually behind the global collapse of the world economic system? But he appears to be an extremely intelligent man who is perceptive and thought provoking—it then becomes difficult to accept the notion that he is ignorant of who the true deceivers are. Thus, indeed, perhaps these would be the same culprits who are behind manipulating the flow of money, are the same paymasters that financed and distributed Moore’s movie.

Moore's documentary for the most part, continued to shield their identities and do not reveal or expose the true hidden profiteers, those that hold the purse strings. He exposes the puppets, which is of no real value, but was careful not to expose the puppeteers—the Invisible Money Changers. This writer has written at least twenty articles dedicated to uncovering and unmasking the true players behind money and high finance.

For example, topics such as: “The Potter and the Clay: Emperors With No Rules”, “The Decoy and the Symbol: Baiting and Switching, You Can't See the Hoax?”, “Money Has No Value, People Do: The Bailout; the Rothschilds Said Give it Up”, “The Domino Effect: Don't Believe the Hype”, “Con Game is an Art: No One Plays it Better Than the Power Brokers”, “The Circle, Within A Circle, Within A Circle: The Art of Deception”, “The Money Changers: The Federal Reserve, Robbery by Deceit”, “The Money Changers: The Federal Reserve, Robbery by Deceit”, “The Pawns In The Game”, “None Dare Call it Conspiracy: There is No Other Name to Call it by”, “The Agenda: And The Agenda Setters”, “Conspiracy Theory: Makes Sense to Me; What About You?”, “The Fall of America: Our Government Has Been Hijacked”, “Who rules America and why do they hide?”, “The Hidden Hand and their quest for world domination”, etc.

This above list of topics are just a small example of the type research that this writer has been engaged in and perhaps it is unfair for him to hold the filmmaker Michael Moore to a higher standard than he would the average American citizen who have been made blind, deaf and dumb by those who practice ‘tricknology’.

Here is where this writer stands on Moore’s documentary; after fully evaluating and assessing the film, it will perhaps do more good than bad, because most people in the United States and the world for that matter, are truly dumbfound relative to this economic crisis and do not understand that our lives have been relegated to controlled pawns. The movie is not necessarily sounding the alarm, but it might prick someone’s curiosity and conscious to desire to do further research and lead them towards broaden their personal investigation into the diabolic schemes of the Invisible Rulers.

However, this writer has come to the conclusion, that the majority of those who have ventured to view Moore’s documentary will perhaps only resume the same mindset, they possessed prior to seeing the movie and rationalize that Moore has bought into these wild conspiracy theories and many that will fall into this category are betting that this crisis will blow over and eventually dismiss Moore as just a paranoid liberal and a conspiracy lunatic. They are in for a rude awakening. You can only lead a horse to the well, but you can not force him to drink. This crisis will not blow over any time soon; we better get prepared for the long haul.

Michael Moore’s movie on its opening weekend finished a disappointed seventh on the theater’s list—last place only grossing 4.8 million dollars and it is perhaps an indication that people would rather be entertained than spend money to be educated and involved in serious intellectual discussion. This does not say much about our society and culture; in particular in light of how the Invisible Rulers have led us out to Pasteur and many of us still do not understand that we have been hoodwinked and cable-towed by this Den of Thieves.

But this writer wonders did Michael Moore take the basic course of Dynastic family investigation, Who is Behind High Finance?—the course is titled Rothschild 101 (there is not an actual course, I am being bit facetious and rhetorical) in which every person that seeks to investigate the hidden money trail must be willing to put in many hours of doing independent research and utilizing many nonconventional sources to connect the dots; because much of this history has been scattered and fragmented, but this has been done intentionally in order to keep humanity confused about the issues. This writer must say, that Moore still needs to take some remedial courses, which to learn the history and practices of the Dynastic Families—they have always used decoys and front men as mere distractions. (Reference: Carroll Quigley; “Tragedy and Hope; A History of the World in Our Time”).

Moore appeared to have not consulted some of the greatest professors, teachers, and writers on this type of topic such as Professor Carroll Quigley author of the book titled, “Tragedy and Hope”, “None Dare Call it Conspiracy” by Gary Allen and Larry Abraham, “Behold a Pale Horse” by William Cooper, etc.

Moore did not untangle the invisible web of deception and many that saw the movie, may have become fixated on Alan Greenspan, Robert Rubens, Timothy Geithner, Paul Volker, Henry Paulson, Barney Franks, etc., and would take these front men as the real powerbrokers and not realize that these low-level operatives are nothing but symbols and decoys. (Reference: Ashahed M. Muhammad; “The Synagogue of Satan”).

When the enemy of deception writes and endorses a script or anything that appears to exposes him; it is most lethal and dangerous because of the level of sophistication and chicanery that have gone into the deception relative to the writing, producing and defining genre. Some would scream that Michael Moore is an independent filmmaker, that he is, but those who control finance and cinema making and film distribution are the real masters. Their objective is never to enlighten humanity, but to keep them in darkness, while these slave drivers remain invisible. What would make me think their objective would be any different relative to the intended outcome of the movie “Capitalism: A Love Story”?

This movie was strategically crafted—it never mentioned Jekyll Island and how the Federal Reserve got started in 1913 and how the international bankers had hijacked the United States money system and the world money system a long time ago. (Reference: Andrew Gause; “The Secret World of Money”).

Thus, Moore’s movie did an adequate job of exploring the economic symptoms of our present crisis and yet at same time shied away from the true causes that have brought us to this present moment in world history. How can you do a documentary on the collapse of the United States economy and not mention Paul Warburg or not dedicate segment to Rothschilds, the Godfathers of money? Money is synonymous with Rothschilds name and legacy; surely Michael Moore must know that it is not Wall Street that is dictating and controlling the rise and fall of the global economic markets; he must also know that the New York Stock Exchange or how Dow Jones fluxuate have nothing to do with buying selling and of stocks and/or commodities. (Reference: Pat Robertson: “Right on the Money”).

Also, you can not talk about or write about Capitalism and money and not mention Adam Smith; in particular if you are doing research on any aspect of banking and finance unless you have cited Adam Smith’s work, the research is incomplete. Smith authored the definitive treatise on Capitalism entitled, “An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations” it is two (2) volume book set. Smith is the father of Capitalist theory.

The collapse of the United States economy and world economy has a much deeper origin than what the mass mediums are presenting and reporting. We in the U.S. have not seen this type economic crunch and crisis, since the Great Depression of 1929, which crippled the economic, political and social fabric of our society. (Reference: Ravi Batra; "The Great Depression of 1990”).

Now, for example, the merger of Wells Fargo Bank and Wachovia and various other financial institutions can not be properly assessed outside of our requirement to at least give a brief historical analysis and evaluation of how and why these financial institutions arrived at this merger position. There are some serious historical implications that perhaps occurred, which got us to the point in which the U.S. Free Market Enterprise system and Capitalism in no uncertain terms collapsed in 2008. This writer presents you with a YouTube clip of former President George Bush making some serious statements relative to Capitalism: I wonder did anybody else hear President George W. Bush say that he has had to abandon the free enterprise and free market system: Reference: Wow! It shocks me how this most powerful and significant statement went right over most Americans heads.

We know that President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney worked to deregulate Wall Street and in the scheme of who controls the flow of money, even this maneuver is insignificant. When Michael Moore was going to Lehman Brothers, AIG, Citi Bank, Bear-Stern, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, etc., and yelling out who has our money? This writer could have answered this question with two names—Rothschilds and Rockefellers. I guess when he was yelling out, where is our money? Moore was referring to the trillions of dollars that U.S. Congress and President George W. Bush heist from the American taxpayers, one of greatest open crimes within history of America, which to so-called bailout these above mentioned financial rogues and gangsters.

We authorized the United States Government to hand over $750 billion dollars to some of the most powerful and wealthiest free market enterprise entities in the history of capitalism. These various government economic bailout packages and/or maneuvers relative to Wall Street was a clear indication that what took place was a sham; it appeared at best on the surface of not being consistent with the principles of capitalism (the free enterprise system has always been a cruel economic system of survival of the fittest), or was it.

The bailout and/or rescue package (they use language as a tool of manipulation to exacerbate or soften an intended objective) of the United States financial institutions was essentially a form of nationalization (central government control). Since the United States president has declared abandoning the free market system; what type of economic system will be put in its place? (Reference: Ellen Hodgson Brown; "Web of Debt: The Shocking Truth About Our Money System and How We Can Break Free").

Moreover, just think about this, two United States Presidents (Bush and Obama) have given the world's corporate Elite over 161 billion dollars of the taxpayers money.

Mr. Moore did not thoroughly follow the money trail because it would have led him to the same names and faces that have been the premier Money Changers throughout the annals of time. These people have their tentacles wrapped around all of humanity and for Michael Moore to omit so much pertinent historical and economic history has bewildered me, and it forces one to believe that he is probably part of the duping and the hoax. (Reference Texe Marrs; “Circle of Intrigue: The Hidden Inner Circle of the Global Illuminati).

Perhaps Moore is an agent provocateur, that is being systematically used by the Invisible Rulers to further disguise the Secrets of the Temple—the mass mediums and propaganda machines are one of their chief ploys of human deception. Those who own and controlled Hollywood will never expose themselves, they are not in the business of snitching on themselves and leading the dumbfound masses to where the real action is taking place. (Reference: “Who Rules America”)

Moore’s scenario gave us the effect and by-product of greed and the structure of a capitalist economy—he stated this in terms of the pyramid scheme paradigm in which one (1) percent of the population (the super Elite) sits at the top of the pyramid; it is they who controls ninety-nine (99) percent of the world's wealth and resources. The masses who are always stationed at the bottom of the pyramid are represented as the ninety-nine percent; this segment of the population is called Goyim (Chattel, Useless Eaters, Peasants) are left to fight and squabble over a measly one percent of the world's wealth and resources. (Reference: William Guy Carr; "Pawns In The Game").

Moore does not understand that those that stole the United States money and world's money (gold and silver) are above the laws and jurisprudence systems of all nations. This Invisible Cabal possesses a true sense of Sovereign Immunity and their wealth insulates them from criminal or civil prosecution and they are shielded by layers upon layers of deception. No citizen or COURT THE WORLD-OVER HAS THE POWER TO ARREST THE INVISIBLE RULERS (Reference: Ashahed M. Muhammad; “The Synagogue of Satan”).

One must also know something about the Federal Reserve System (and how it is structured) and how the United States Monetary System was taking over by a private entity called the Federal Reserve (note: this is a private institution and not governmental; although it wears the name federal), which has the powers, duty and responsibility of printing money and establishing interest rates. It was founded in 1913, by powerful banking families such as Rothschilds, Morgans, Rockefellars, Warburgs, etc., and it would be these families that still possess control over the Unites States Monetary System and now for over 90 years have control over the flow of money. Those International Bankers that set-up the Federal Reserve devised one of the greatest criminal cartels in the history of humanity. (Reference: Anthony Sutton; “America’s Secret Establishment”).

The Federal Reserve is comprised of twelve Central Banks—1. Rothschild Bank of London, Rothschild Bank of Berlin, 2. Chase Manhattan Bank of New York (Rockefeller) Chase National bank of New York (Rockefeller). 3. First National Bank of New York. 5. Hanover National Bank of New York. 6. Goldman Sachs of New York. 7. Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York. 8. Lehman Brothers of New York. 9. Warburg Bank of Hamburg Warburg Bank of Amsterdam. 10. Lazard Brothers of Paris. 11. Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy. 12. JP Morgan. (Reference: Eustace Mullins; “The Secrets of the Federal Reserve”).

We abandoned the gold standard system and were duped into accepting a Fiat money system and this is what has gotten us to where the United States economy is in 2009. The Federal Reserve and the Bank of England are root causes of wrecking the global economy—they are allowed to print paper money out of thin air and set interest rates indiscriminately and now this rubber currency, which has no real collateral (gold and silver) backing or value it is bouncing all over the place. (Reference: William Greider; “Secrets of the Temple: How the Federal Reserve Runs the Country”) Please Reference Rod Parsley YouTube clip

Yes, to steal the world's money and control the global monetary system is a criminal act because this small minority answers to no one. The United States is in an economic depression (the politicians refer to this downward economic spiral as a recession, but most Americans do not know the difference between recession and a depression). The term recession is strategically used in order to not send the masses into a panic mode and language is used like Minister Malcolm X would say that we have become like the patient whom the dentist has injected with the medicine Novocain for pain and we have learned to suffer peacefully.

This economic phenomena has been induced and has very little to do with subprime loans fiasco, which so-called led to the collapse of the housing market and it even has less to do with Wall Street. However, I do think the housing crisis with the subprime lending institutions and the big banking and financial institutions such as Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Bear-Sterns, JP Morgan, AIG, Wachovia, etc., collapsing it was all induced by the Central Banks and the Hidden Dynastic Families. They have achieved in part their objective—misery and desperation.

The Invisible Rulers are restructuring the new terms of servitude and part of this equation was to call the debt-in and rearrange the labor paradigm. This also would allow them to measure and assess, if the masses had any resistance left in them and a willingness to rebel against this modern Caesar’s decrees and revolt in accordance to the United States Constitution or will they lie down and permit these generation of Vipers to continue to trample over them like a defenseless doormat. (Reference: Pat Robertson; "The New World Order").

The American Declaration of Independence gives us some beautiful instructions and it is about time we take heave. It stated, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Government are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, IT IS THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO ALTER OR ABOLISH IT, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed will dictate that Government long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experiences hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, IT IS THEIR RIGHT, IT IS THEIR DUTY, TO THROW OFF SUCH GOVERNMENT, and to provide new Guards for their future security." (Reference: The United States Declaration of Independence the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776).

The Invisible Rulers have tied the masses of people to a system of debt which is the driving force of assuring societal obedience and this is choking the economic lifeblood out of the globe and the staggering unemployment rates are all done by designed to create a control sense of misery. I came across an article which was one of the best critical evaluations and examinations of the United States and global economy that I have read in recent times. The piece was written by Robert Morley entitled, “World Prepares to Dump the Dollar" published on July 21, 2009 in online magazine called is some of what Morley stated: “Japan is America’s second-most important creditor nation—lending the U.S. billions of dollars each year. If Japan won’t lend unless America pays it back in yen, then China and other major lenders may quickly follow suit. This would eliminate America’s ability to use inflation to cheat on its debt payments. America’s debt burden would soar, interest rates would jump, and national default—Argentina-style—could be staring America in the face within months instead of years.”Morley continued: “America is making a terrible mistake which will result in the greatest fall in all of mankind’s history!” Tim Thompson wrote for the Trumpet in 2000. “As soon as America is no longer a safe place for foreign money, that money will be gone. And once the foreign money is gone, it will leave us with a mountain of debt that we cannot repay.”

This will cause a social implosion and the have-nots will help the enemy in their secondary plan, which is to depopulate earth of us useless eaters. The individuals that Moore identified in the documentary as key players in banking and finance are gofers and powerless; moreover, these low level operatives are only paid agents of the Dynastic Families—they are really public pawns and are not part of global decision making process, but this was strategically done to keep humanity distracted—keep your eyes on the prize. (Reference: Terrance Jackson; “Putting it All Together: World Conquest, Global Genocide and African Liberation’).

My friends those who rules America and the world are often faceless and nameless—they are hidden and protected—they give the Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke orders and they were the ones responsible for putting a half billion dollars behind a relatively unknown pawn named President Barack Obama and getting him elected to the highest office in the world.

He too is just a political prostitute and his loyalty to their agenda is unquestionable and it run deeper than his loyalty to Goldman Sach, as Moore implied in documentary, but this writer is going to go a step further, Obama pledged his loyalty directly to the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers a long time ago. He is a creation of their money, power and influence because you do not rise to the perception of power as quick as he did without confirmation and backing of the Invisible Rulers. (Reference: Webster Griffin Tarpley; "Barack H. Obama: The Unauthorized Biography").

Michael Moore cheated us, by not giving us all the storyline, but the documentary played on the emotions of the Have-nots and those that Moore's movie indicted as being the insensitive ruthless capitalist are only playing a minor role in our oppression. Their job is to read the script and act. They do this in order that the guilty can continue to hide their dirty hands. Mr. Moore did not mention, the House of Rothschild, Royal Institute of International Affairs, Club of Rome, the Carlyle Group, Milner Group, Bilderberger, Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, the Roundtable, etc., surely he must know that those who truly control the flow of money operates on different fronts and we must understand that power concedes nothing without a demand. (Reference: Daniel Estulin: "The True Story of the Bilderberg Group).

The majority of Congress and those who view the vote, as the great equalizer do not understand and foolishly thought that the politicians we elected to serve and is so-called placed there to protect the legitimate political aspirations of the electorate; however are only pawns. Thus, they failed to understand that these operatives are put there by us, but ultimately they all will windup serving one master—the Dynastic Families and the oath that your politicians took on the Bible and swore to uphold the United States Constitution means absolutely nothing. (Reference: John Coleman; The Story of the Committee of 300”).

Moore left the viewing audience with nothing, but instructed us to try democracy in which we have tried Democracy for over 200 years and we are partially in this predicament because Democracy does not work. Our Democratic Government has been hijacked by the money changers and capitalism reached its zenith under the United States democratic system. But it has never been able to secure and protect the masses of people from being victims of greed and exploitation. It has been Democracy that has allowed the Invisible Rulers, a free reign to commit all manner of criminal acts and those who control money, care not who write its laws. Mr. Moore perhaps has yet to realize that Democracy is synonymous with Capitalism—they are one and the same. Why trade Capitalism for Democracy? When the results are going to be the same, which is more exploitation. (Reference: Karl Marx and Friedrich Engles; “Communist Manifesto”).

With all this said, go see the movie and tell me what you think; in particular since you have read my concerns and thoughts about Michael Moore’s movie “Capitalism: A Love Story.” I would love to hear from you.

This writer wrote an article entitled "HIRAM ABIFF: SYMBOLIC OF THE BLACK MAN IN AMERICA" October 13, 2008, in which the article as far as, a thought had laid dormant inside of me for perhaps over ten to fifteen years; this is when I actually began to write the article, but just could not pull my Masonic research together in order to at least put forth a half way decent argument that would be empirical and scholarly. This writer in 2008 was contacted by an active United States Serviceman named Wayne T. Muhammad who had read some of my articles relative to Islam and Freemasonry, but he was more interested in my opinions on Hiram Abiff being an allegorical prototype of the African American experience. Mr. Muhammad was doing some writing in this area and this writer thinks that he was searching to see what other writers and scholars have said on this topic.

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam have always drawn this parallel between Hiram Abiff and the Black man of America and it was always an intriguing topic for me and no doubt, it caught my intellectual imagination some years ago. No other group has taught on this aspect of Masonic History, Hiram Abiff and Black man’s plight and their sojourn in America being kidnapped from Africa and robbed of the knowledge of self as a symbolic parallel to the mythological character Hiram Abiff other than the Nation of Islam.

This writer has sat under many lectures being delivered by the late Minister Dr. Khallid Abdul Muhammad and Minister Dr. Abdul Alim Muhammad; both of these ministers of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad had the ability to make Speculative Masonry come alive and could decode the symbolism and take all the Masonic lessons back to Kemet (Egypt) where our ancient ancestors had mastered Operative Masonry and Speculative Masonry.

Yes, the Egyptian Mystery Schools predated European Freemasonry by some thousands of years and the basis of modern Masonry rest upon the esoteric, occult and mythical lessons that were being observed and practice as moral lessons based on the Kemetic sciences. The Masonic regalia, rituals, signs and symbols go back to Kemet, for one to argue this is a sign of ignorance and perhaps it is this denial that has fueled Masonic racism—Royal Arch Masonry, Blue Lodge Masonry, Scottish Rite Masonry, Mystic Shrine Masonry, York Rite Masonry, etc., have an interdependency on the ancient teachings and scrolls of Kemet, without Kemet (Egypt) these Orders would have a difficult time existing.

Some scholars have tried to sum up the intellectual geniuses and the creative energy of Kemet (Egypt) by trying to interpret and explain its rituals and symbolism in books such as the “Egyptian Book of Dead” and others have turned to the “Kyballion” but the Kemtic wisdom is infinite in which it can not be contained; not even, in all the volumes of books recorded by the ancients. The Original Man was a Master Builder and had the building skills that would put an artificer and craftsman like Hiram Abiff the Widow’s Son to shame. In Masonic liturgy Hiram Abiff is considered an allegorical story and a symbolic story in which the biblical account does not go hand and hand with the Freemasonic Speculative Masonic theories.

This writer is very familiar with works of Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas; “The Hiram Key: Pharaoh’s, Freemasons, and the Discovery of the Secret Scrolls of Jesus” and Robert Lomas: “Turning The Hiram Key”. These are new Masonic writers argue to a certain extent that Hiram Abiff perhaps was a mortal being who walked this earth, but if you are looking for a much older source who contradicts Lomas and Knight; here is one for you "Who is Hiram Abiff?" by J.S.M Ward, which was first published in 1925, and he records a number of historical characters and allegories associated with the name of Hiram Abiff that transcends many ancient societies and cultures. My Brother Zachary Gremillion author of the book titled, ”African Origins of Freemasonry” and founder and Soverign Grand Master of non-Masonic order named the Imperial Cushite Order, Ancient Grand Lodge of Khamet. Brother Gremillion always end his blog posting with this quote "Who is that its is he whom was slain that now lives". The answer to this question can only be understood, if my readers know who is the original man?

The Kemitic (Egyptians) had mastered science, medicine, architect, art, philosophy chemistry, religion (spirituality), etc. The story of Hiram Abiff, the Widow’s Son was borrowed from the ancient story of Osiris (Asar), Isis (Aset), and Horus (Huru); (the Father, Son and Holy Ghost)—the birth, death, resurrection and ascension that we attribute to Hiram Abiff, it was actually predated by some thousands of years by the Osirian Myth, even before the advent of Isa bin Yusuf or Yeshua ben Yosef (better known in the West as Jesus Christ—the so-called Son of God).
These legends were rooted in the Sun God and Solar God concepts. For example, right-minded historians and social scientists have traced these rituals and customs back to the worship of the Winter Solstice and Summer Solstice; in fact Kersey Graves in his monumental book titled, “The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors” he listed at least sixteen World Saviors that had the exact same identical advents attributed to their lives that we have associated with Yeshua ben Yosef (Jesus the son of Joseph). These are the facts and they are undisputable.

The Caucasian history only goes back 6,000 years. So we do know this much, the original people of Kemet were not Caucasians and we further know to a great extent that the Nubians have a much older civilization than western man. So what was the likelihood of the people of Kemet being Nubians, as opposed to Caucasians (I know historian Erik Von Daniken said the ancient pyramid builders dropped out of space (lol). Second point, the works of Dr. Cheik Anta Diop and Dr. John Jackson in which both of these scholars have done monumental work in anthropology, Egyptology, archeology, genetics, race, paleontology, etc. and have verified that Kemet (Egypt) was a Nubian culture.

Here is another good source "Destruction of Black Civilization" by Dr. Chancellor Williams. He traced how in Kemet (Kemet) the darker skinned original people were pushed to the south. Now, we also know this much for a fact, the people that occupies Egypt today are Johnny-come-lately imposters along with their Semitic kith and kin those who called themselves Jews. The question that I that pose to those who opposed me is, who is the original man?

One writer gives us the linage of the people of Kemet as it is traced from the Biblical context.

According to the Bible the ancient Egyptians were descended from Ham through the line of Mizraim. Ham had four sons: Cush, Mizraim, Phut, and Canaan (Genesis 10:6). The name "Mizraim" is the original name given for Egypt in the Hebrew Old Testament. Many Bibles will have a footnote next to the name "Mizraim" explaining that it means "Egypt." The name "Egypt" itself actually comes to us from the Greeks who gave the Land that name (i.e. "Aegyptos" from the Greek). In addition to the name "Mizraim," the ancient Egyptians also referred to their land as "Kemet" which means "Land of the Blacks." Western historians, however, say that the word "Kemet" refers to the color of the soil of the land rather than its people. But, the word "Kemet" is actually an ethnic term being a derivative of the word "Khem" (Cham or Ham) which means "burnt" or "black." Ham, who was one of the three sons of Noah and the direct ancestor of the Egyptians, was black. The Bible, in the Old Testament, repeatedly refers to Egypt as the "Land of Ham" (i.e., Psalm 105:23, 27; 106:22).

Regarding the ancient Egyptians, there is also considerable historical evidence, aside from the Holy Bible, that they were of Black or Negro origin. Even today the true Egyptian is not to be found in the cities but in the country sides and farmlands of Egypt. Most of the Egyptians in the cities carry a mixed ancestry of European and Asian, but mostly Asian from the immigration and invasions of various people into Egypt throughout the centuries. Very few people realize that Cleopatra was of Greek origin because the Greeks once ruled Egypt and she was descended from one of those Greek rulers. The true Egyptian found in the countryside, however, has dark brown to black skin and very pronounced Negro features. This is particularly true the further south one travels in Egypt. It was from the south that the original pharaohs and the people of Egypt settled the land. The original rulers and builders of Egyptian civilization were of completely Black or Negro origin.

This writer had read the works of great Caucasian scholars such as Albert Churchward, Gerald Massey, Sir Godfrey Higgins, George Frazer, etc., who pointed to Kemet (Egypt) as being the cradle of civilization from which all knowledge sprung. I had also, read a book written in 1954 by George G.M. James titled, "Stolen Legacy" in which James attributes Greek Mythology as being stolen Egyptian philosophy and since Freemasonry is built on these scientific and mathematical principles this led me to investigate Kemet (Egypt) further and this is where I found the root of all Masonic teachings. Thus, for those who might not know when this writer speaks if Egypt, he is not referring to the Middle East, Egypt is in Africa.

Manly P. Hall and Albert G. Mackey and all the great Masonic writers pointed us to Kemet (Egypt) where this great craft received its origin. On the walls of the great pyramids it was inscribed "Man Know Thyself" and as a people of African descendant we had been made blind to the knowledge of self and Freemasonry or Speculative (philosophical) Masonry had enough in its teachings to verify that this society had ancient origins that went further back than 1717. The origin gave us a black reality and all the Masonic schools of thought came from African people

This writer is laying this historical foundation because we must be able to overturn the tricks, lies and deceptions that Caucasian Freemasons have infused into Masonic historical ideology giving us the false impression that it was in England in 1717 that these enlightened men where the founders of Freemasonry. Thus, starting from this historical premise, is to negate the Nubian origin of Freemasonry and it is this fuel that keeps the social and political antagonism and divisiveness that exist between Black and White Freemasonry on the front burner.

But beneath the historical social tension between the Black and White Masonic Orders are the racial rules that society at-large has played by since the 1440s when the Portuguese first ventured to the West Coast of Africa and forciable brought black human cargo to Lisbon, which led to the modern inception of a white supremacy ideology and it created a racial system of inferiority and dehumanization of people of African descent.

Dr. Frances Cress Welsing in her book titled, “The Cress Theory of Color Confrontation and Racism” states: "Racism is viewed as a global behavior power system with a constant and specific set of power relationships. Racism evolved with the singular goal of white supremacy or white power domination by the global white minority over the vast non-white global majority. This 'colored global collective' has been forced into the position of relative powerlessness compared to the 'global white collective' establishing the power equation of white over non-white (W/N-W). Racism, whether consciously or unconsciously evolved as a survival necessity for the tiny global white minority, due to their genetic recessive status as albino variants (mutants) in a world of skin-color genetically dominant black, brown, red and yellow peoples”

Dr. Welsing continues: ” . . . Indeed, had the global white minority not evolved this specific system of power relationships (whites over non-whites) wherein whites control all of the behavior activity of non-whites in all areas of people activity (economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, sex and war) as a survival mechanism, in the presence of the genetically dominant colored world majori­ty, the mutant albino genetic-recessive minority would finds itself genetically annihilated. That is, there would be no 'white' people except for the new mutations to albinism pro­duced by skin-melaninated or colored peoples. Thus, to pre­vent the genetic annihilation of skin whiteness, a behavior power system was evolved-the power system of racism or white supremacy domination.”

So when this writer has this type of conversation with white Masons; many can not move beyond the effect and influence that the larger society has had on their psychological orientation and worldview and they immediately become defensive and echo sentiments of historical denial. They are quick to let me know, that Freemasonry knows no color, but the principles of Freemasonry are universal and can not be confined to racial, culture, social, etc., politics; it is all embracing of the universality of all the systems of morality. They are absolutely correct, but many of them have done very little to breakdown the social barriers—their cable tow have been very short in this area of confronting Masonic racism and reaching out to their African American Masonic brethrens.

For example, eleven old Confederate states within the United States of America still practice Masonic racism and within these Masonic jurisdictions in 2009, they still do not recognized the largest black Masonic entity in the United States, which is Prince Hall Masonry (Free and Accepted Masons), but one must understand that the legitimacy of Prince Hall Masonry has never rested upon white acceptance as some of Prince Hall Masonic detractors have maintained.

Prince Hall Freemasons as an entity did not need white approval to justify their Masonic Order as being a body of “Regular” Masons—who gave the United Grand Lodge of England or any European Masonic governing Grand Orient the right to declare, which body of Masons shall be recognized as legitimate Masons?

Prince Hall Masons in the United States in the late 1920s won a Supreme Court decision which to be declared as a legal Masonic body and Masonic entity which was given the duly rights and authority to practice the rituals and tenets of Freemasonry in accordance to the ancient traditions. There is no court higher than the United States Supreme Court within the United States system of jurisprudence, but this right in reality, was established before the inception of the Magna Carta. This legal decision would render any other Masonic governing body's decision as a moot point relative to Prince Hall Masonic legitimacy; in particularly because we in the United States are answerable to the laws and enactments that are evoke on our soil—the legal decision over eighty years ago, if nothing else established Masonic legality for Prince Hall Masons (Jubilee Day) and this decision alone would have overriding any foreign entity such as the United Grand Lodge of England.

This writer has maintained unless we deal with the root cause of the problem which is racism then the social attitudes that undergirds this disease will continue to deny us the true meaning of Freemasonry and millions of its devotees throughout the world will never come to know the true realization of what Freemasonry stands for. We also make a huge mistake, when we try to pretend that racism doesn’t exist in Freemasonry; thus, this leads me directly into a conversation that I have had with a white European Mason who is a member of the United Grand Lodge of England.

Cecil Rhodes, in an article titled "Confession of Faith" stated: "I contend that we are the finest race in the world and that the more of the world we inhabit the better it is for the human race. Just fancy those parts that are at present in­habited by the most despicable specimens of human be­ings. What an alteration there would be if they were brought under Anglo-Saxon influence. Look again at the extra employment a new country added to our dominion gives. I contend that every acre added to our territory means in the future of birth to some more of the English race. Why should we not form a secret society with but one object, the fur­therance of the British Empire and the bringing of the whole' uncivilized world under British rule? Poverty is better under our flag than wealth under a foreign one. Africa is still lying ready for us, it is our duty to seize every opportunity of ac­quiring more territory and we should keep this one idea steadily before our eyes that more territory simply means more of the Anglo-Saxon race, more of the best of the most human, most honorable race this world possesses.'"

This article came about do to a lengthy dialog that I have had with a white Freemason on David Icke web site he goes by the title Grand Secretary and he professed to be from York, England and claim to be a pseudo authority on European Freemasonry. This writer and the Grand Secretary over a couple of weeks were in a dialogue relative to a Speculative Masonic topic that this writer had written titled, “Hiram Abiff: Symbolic of the Black man of America”. The Grand Secretary accused me of distorting Masonry and imploring reverse racism and although this writer knew that most Caucasians aren’t used to being intellectually challenged by people of African descent.

The United Grand Lodge of England has never been a true ally or friend to the Black Prince Hall Masonic Order and this writer was not willing to overlook the United Kingdom’s role in the Transatlantic Slave Trade, which has led to the racial attitudes that many white Masons have come to embrace; even in Europe. This writer has challenged them to debunk Masonic racism and for this reason he has been ridiculed by some white Masons who refuse to let go of the past and transition their thinking into the 21st Century. The Grand Secretary and my discourse will give my readers some indication of the historical contradictions and the stereotypes, which have created Masonic misunderstanding and Masonic divisiveness between black Freemasons and white Freemasons. Some or should I say, very little of this conversation has been edited between the Grand Secretary and myself.

But this article is also written to challenge Prince Hall Masons to know that integration is not the answer to resolving this four hundred year old dilemma and we should not fool ourselves into believing that white Masonic recognition will end all of the political, economic and social problems, which exist between the two orders. Lastly, we need more black Masonic writers and historians who are willing to engage in Masonic research and began to contribute to the philosophical science of Speculative Masonic theory. I am on job, but we need help. This is a distress call “My God, My God, Is There No Help For the Poor Widow’s Son”. Sorry I can not give you the word that comes with this phrase.

Grand Secretary: God forbid, and he will.This is the most racist and disgusting corruption and misuse that I have ever had the misfortune to witness. I hope it fails, and soon. And believe me, we will stay awake.

Fahim Knight-El: Grand Secretary can you please further explain your comment before I give it response; I do not want to mis-interpreted your statement.

Grand Secretary: There is NO place for racism of any kind, anywhere on this tiny planet. We are all equal and entitled, yes entitled to be regarded, and treated as such. We must all stay awake in order to confront, fight, and emerge victorious against anything, or anybody, who treats our fellow human beings as different, or inferior, simply because of where they were born (accident of birth) or the colour of their skin. I believe that what I have said is quite clear.Free Masonry is entirely colour blind. It is the one place in this world where it is wholly irrelevant. There is NO place for it, and where there is racism the answer is certainly not to oppose it with racism of a different nature, or colour. Now you can list the Moderns Grand Lodges that are racist, and they are just as wrong as you are. Racism is NOT the answer to racism.

Grand Secretary continues: This is a treatise on the historical framework for the symbolism employed in the Moderns rituals, not Free Masonry per se. We must get over this. The Moderns form of freemasonry, as an entity, did not exist in any form prior to that meeting in the London Pub in 1717. It is, in their own words, and entirely accurate, "a product of the Enlightenment".

Moderns freemasonry is as closely connected to the Ancient Mysteries as Marilyn Monroe is to the horticulture of Ogen Melons.

Fahim Knight-El: Grand Secretary: Perhaps you are fooling yourself. I live in the United States of America where in at least 11 states, white Freemasons are still practicing racism and discrimination against African American Masons. This reality, automatically deconstructs your argument that Masonry is so-called color blind—not in the United States. Sir, you did not point out one thing that I have said in the article that was racist and unless you consider telling and exposing historical events as being a racist. Moreover, Chattel Slavery, Transatlantic Slave Trade, Middle Passage, etc., existed and happened. How is that racist? If I am only citing historical evidence. No, Sir your comments either indicate that you live in a bubble or are in historical denial. Here is my article that I wrote on Masonic Racism within the United States of America. (Reference: Journey to the East Internet Web Site link:

Note: North Carolina Ancient Free and Accepted Masons (AF&AM predominately white body of Masons and North Carolina Prince Hall Masons the predominately Black Masonic body—Free and Accepted Masons (F&AM) did pass a resolution of fraternal recognition in November 2008, after over 200 years of Masonic segregation. There are still eleven (11) states, which racism and segregation still exist between the two Masonic entities.

Grand Secretary: Well do something about it that is not a racist response. Sue them to Hell where they belong. It works.What is an African American anyway?You are either an African, or you are an American, and until you drop these silly racist labels that leave you wallowing in the injustices of the past, you will never make progress.We don't have West Indian English, or a Pakistani Welshman, or an Irish Liverpudlian or a Greek Londoner. These are quite preposterous notions.An Anglo-Saxon Englishman, or Scot, or Irishman, or Welshman is someone who accepts and shares the same values and national institutions within their chosen national boundaries.America is a deeply divided nation because you do not. When are you going to stop living in the past?

Fahim Knight-El: Your response is very Eurocentric and you did not address any points that I have made. I gave you a 5,000 word article that I wrote explaining and exposing American racism in Freemasonry, which initially you stated there was no racism in Masonry. I got all types of proof and documentation that Freemasonry goes much further back than 1717; perhaps you meant this as being date when European Freemasonry originated. Moreover even Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas, two European Masonic historians and writers documents that Freemasonry goes further back than 1717. What sources are you reading or is it just your Eurocentric worldview that you are coming from. Thus Give Me a minute I am going to post regarding what it means for the African living in America to look back, it is entitled, "Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: Myth or Reality". I am posting it now and perhaps this will answer some of your questions relative to the African American plight.

Grand Secretary: Well this statement calls for an answer to a very important question. How can a self-started, un-Chartered Grand Lodge in England, issue a "legitimate charter" to any body?Firstly, a Charter is a legal document that may only be issued by a Monarch or a Sovereign Legislature. Secondly a Charter holder cannot, by law, issue a Charter, it may only issue a warrant to act under its Charter. Thirdly, a Charter may only be repealed by the Sovereign Legislature that issued it, or the Legislature that issued with the assent of the Sovereign power.Accordingly, the United States Supreme Court legitimised Prince Hall Free Masonry because it possessed the Sovereign power of the State. In effect, it started a completely new and legitimate American Grand Lodge, totally unconnected with English freemasonry. The Supreme Court could not, by definition, legitimise an illegal, in fact non-existent, English Charter.Similarly, and earlier, after the American War of Independence, the other American State Grand Lodges were legitimised. Beforehand they were not legitimate, they were also wholly irregular, because they were working under the false premise that their English "Charters" were legal. They were, as a matter of fact, worthless pieces of paper.Scottish warrants were of a different character.Your freemasonry is pure American freemasonry, started with proper authority, by legal Charter from your own Sovereign State. You might as well just forget what happened before the Supreme Court ruling. Film flam.

Fahim A. Knight-El: Prince Hall Masonry was considered “Regular” as early as 1784 and there is a long history of racism and social antagonism that have existed within the United States. Many freed black men fought in the American Revolution—some fought on the side of the thirteen colonies and others fought on side of Great Britain (the Crown), which helped America gain her independence in 1776.

Knight-El continued: In 1775 Prince Hall and the fourteen other black military soldiers were initiated, past and raised and made Masons by a white Irish European military lodge in Boston, Massachusetts and this much we know is undeniable. This fact is irrefutable, but based on segregation and racism, American Masons did not receive black Masons as brothers of the Craft. Prince Hall petitioned the Grand Lodge of England for a charter and a Masonic dispensation to function as a legal black Masonic entity and it was granted. He received the charter for the establishment of African Lodge 459 and later African lodge number 1 was convened. Thus, with the Masonic structure in America either the initial Prince Hall lodge would have to be admitted within the body of American Masonry (white Grand Lodges) and/or function as an entity under the white Scottish Rite Masonic Order or the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons (these two bodies are often interchangeably within the scheme of American Freemasonry), which was not within the rules and laws of the U.S. social structure and this also included the American Freemasonic Order.

Knight-El continued: Prince Hall charter forced him to seek to build a black Masonic institution understanding that he was not going to get any acceptance letter from the white Masonic body within the United States extending him and the other black Masons membership into their all white lodges. The Transatlantic Slave Trade relative to the United States did not end until 1807 and Africans in America at this time in history did the best they could under some unbearable political, economic and social circumstances. Prince Hall probably did not know that it was his ancestors of Kemet (Ancient Egypt) that was the first to introduced the system of adepts initiations, rituals, qualified stages of learning, etc., to the world; in particular the Egyptian Mystery System which was based on a system of Ancient Wisdom and writings that went further back than PTAH, Amen-RA and even further than the Osirian Myth. Thus, if Hall saw the Grand Lodge of England as a credible Masonic body; it was perhaps his orientation, which was no different than the thinking of most blacks who were made slaves in the Americas and who after being made free in 1865 still followed the Caucasian's culture, mores’, folkways, norms, etc., even in 2009. Prince Hall did have the vision and wither all to establish a black Masonic order that has withstood the historical test of time for over two hundred years.

Knight-El continued: Many Prince Hall Masons have sought out the true origins of Freemasonry and is breaking the Eurocentric Masonic grip that has suffocated our ability to go further and uncover more ancient systems of initiation and learning that truly predates the western world concept of Freemasonry. They only have a fraction and distorted system of Masonry. Many like myself are doing what we can to introduce brothers to this alternative view of Masonry and reintroduce him to what his African ancestor established over 20 thousand years ago in Cush and Kemet. While the Caucasian was still toiling in the Caucasus Mountains between the Black and Caspian Sea.

Grand Secretary: I am not interested in when it "was considered regular". The fact is that it was not regular until the Supreme Court Judgment.It certainly is now so there is no need to be defensive on this.And what about this "African American" nonsense?

Fahim Knight-El: Thus, everything I have given you is my words. Please show me one thing that I have given that was not my words. You have no defense for Masonic racism and I have cited you an entire article giving you my well researched article assessing and evaluating Masonic racism from its inception in the United States. Why are you keeping on trying to deny this historical fact? Fahim Knight-El: The term "African American" was derived from Europeans assault on people of African dissent robbing them of a land, heritage, culture, religion, God, folkway, mores, values, customs, and traditions, etc.; this was the negative impact of 310 years of Chattel Slavery (1555-1865). It work to strip African Americans and Africans scattered though out Diaspora of unified a nationality.

Knight-EL continued: Africans in America were denied their culture humanity. This was the greatest crime ever committed in the history of humanity. It was against the law for Africans on the slave plantation to speak their own native tongue and this evil system divided those who shared ethnic lineage. They called Blacks (Negroes) from the word "necro" which means something dead, but they have duped humanity in believing that the word Negro meant black in Latin (Spanish), but it actually meant "dead" referring to a people who were being classified from their perspective as coming from the "Dark Continent" meaning a people who had no history and gave nothing to human civilization. Yes, this type of historical onslaught, which was based in the ideology of white supremacy and by its nature left a people devastated. Although, Chattel Slavery ended in 1865 the search to reclaim an ethnic, nationality, racial and culture identity left African people in America in search of a cohesive identity and even in 2009, we have yet to achieve that objective. Blacks have attempted to make many nationality transitions. For example, from being Africans, Negro, Colored, Black, Afro-American, African American, etc., and a host of other nationalities through out their experience in America. These different nationality claims were a direct result of the effect of Chattel Slavery. Moreover, blacks in the United States have always had a culture duality—African, perhaps in genetically and phenotype our classification would be African. But on the other hand we are considered Americans (at least in legal theory) and these complex variables are more contradictory than an agreed ethnic/nationality solution relative to the Africans living in America. In the mid-1980s Jesse Jackson and other black leadership proposed and adopted the nationality classification for blacks—African American. I hope that answers your question and give you some historical background.

Grand Secretary: I have NOT denied that there has been Masonic racism but "black Masonry" is racial segregation based upon the colour of ones skin and THAT is racism too. That was the point of my statement and question.I stand by what I said about the continuation of racial stereotypes in the United States of America. The day you can simply say "I am an American" and forget the African bit, then your country will be a lot healthier.Nationality classification? Why do you need it? This is 2009. When was slavery abolished?And by the way, the word "negro" refers to people who originated from the Niger Delta, the word Niger meaning "black" in the Latin tongue. I agree entirely with kasalt. I don't know who is filling your head with this racist nonsense, but it has nothing to do with the root necro, or death. Who told you this then? Whoever it was, I suspect was trying to wind you up for some reason.Please forget race, America. Treat everyone as an individual, as an equal, and you won't go far wrong. Fahim, your national and cultural identity is that of an equal American Citizen, and may God bless you for that.

Fahim Knight-El: No, African American identity will always be viewed separate and apart from what you describe as Americanism (they are two distinct people and cultures). You are asking 40-50 million Africans living in America to forget their cultural and nationality and accept Americanism. No, Sir what you are proposing is insane and represents cultural destruction. We will never fully embrace our former slave master’s culture, as our own for the social harmony of this nation called America. I explained to you, the entire "African American" concept (your are still in denial of this historical reality) you can accept it or leave it alone.

Knight-El continued: No European in York, England has the moral authority to assign Africans in America a nationality; thus, England was one of the perpetrators of the criminal act, in particular their role in Transatlantic slave trade. This is why we stand with the Muslims and Islam in the United Kingdom; they will continue give UK hell. This should be your concern in the UK, in particular, how are you going deal with militant and radical Islam? You have no knowledge of the history and plight of black Americans. Here is a link that explains the word "Negro" and its origin from our perspective and not the from the Eurocentric worldview. Please take a minute and view the link and let me know your thinking. Black Freemasonry was only a reaction to white Freemasonry, which was racist to its core. Now, I am not willing to continue to debate ignorance. I have giving you facts and history—your approach now boarders on a racist disposition.

Grand Secretary: Fahim, I feel so very sorry for you if you believe even 1% of what you have posted. Africa is clearly not a nation, or a culture. It is, as a matter of fact, an entire continent consisting of a large number of very disparate countries, cultures, political systems, religions, tribes and peoples, white, black, or any colour that you might care to mention.America is obviously in for some very difficult times due to blind racial prejudice from people with your twisted mentality, irrespective of your race, creed or colour.Thank God I am a typical mongrel Anglo-Saxon Englishman who will, unfortunately, have to witness the inevitable bloody outcome.Please do not claim to be a Freemason Fahim, because this you could never be, whether Modern or Ancient.This just shows what can happen when freemasons mistakenly pursue an open door policy after having comprehensively ditched its sound moral base. What a monumental mistake was made in 1723 (the first Anderson Constitutions).This is a VERY serious, and IMHO highly dangerous development, and a further quite frightening corruption of the tenets of a Free Mason.

Fahim Knight-El: Here you go again with a White Supremacy perspective; Africa is in the condition it is in because of European imperialism and colonialism, which has led to the raping and robbing of Africa's resources by past and present European powers. You have a habit of making the criminal the victim and the victim the criminal. I can just cite the Berlin Conference 1884-1885 where Africa was divided and partitioned by the European powers in which nations and people were separated to benefit the colonial masters. Sir, no European is in a moral position to judge the continent of Africa based on their roles or their ancestor’s role in the greatest human tragedy/crime ever recorded in human history.

Knight-El continued: Thus, the principles of Freemasonry were hypocritical because Americans and some Europeans nations prohibited a fellowman membership into white Masonic lodges based on skin color and this was wrong yesterday and it is wrong today. This isn't anything Fahim A. Knight-EL invented or created, but it was an agreed system to deny blacks membership because white Freemasons saw themselves as being ethnic superior. I have been on a campaign to expose this Masonic hypocrisy and break up that good ole boy network. You are still in denial of Masonic racism based on your comments. Your argument is weak and has no basis. Sir, everyone knows that there would not have been a need for two distinct Masonic fraternal orders black and white, if it were not for racism—practice by our white Masonic brothers.

Grand Secretary: There is a need TODAY for an end to racism. I demonstrated against the policy of separate development in South Africa. I did not do that in order to support the same policy in America.Your thinking is way out of date my brother.

Absolutely correct about Hiram Abiff except the rituals were developed by the white, European, Huguenot Minister, Dr Theophilus Desaguliers, between 1720 and 1730.These references to a fictional character called "Hiram Abiff" were first documented in France in the rituals of a non-Masonic organisation known as "The Sons of Solomon". This is where it is believed, Desaguliers discovered them, and in the absence of the rituals for the key "Master's Part" denied to him, introduced the fiction of Hiram Abiff.

Fahim Knight-El: Sir, Racism is a disease and this disease has even spread itself to the Masonic Order, in particular within American Masonry. Thus, as I stated before we will never let this issue go until the other 11 States in the United States abandon their racist practices against black Masons. How can one still call themselves brother Masons and so-called embrace the principles and still stand as one of the few institutions in America that stills overtly practice racism? What part of this social dilemma that you do not understand? The white Masons are practicing apartheid right inside the Ancient Free and Accepted Masonic Order (AF&AM), Scottish Rite and York Rite Orders in America. Do not attack me but go on a campaign to force your white Masonic brothers to end this unjust and deplorable and racist disposition, which stands as a Masonic contradiction. We will always oppose this type of behavior. I as a Masonic researcher will not let our white Masonic brothers off the hook. America in general, still remains a racist nation and Freemasonry as an institution in the United States reflects the larger social order.

Grand Secretary: Sue them to Hell, and at the same time replace them with fully integrated Free Masonry. Show the world by your example. You can do it.

This is probably true, but we must never allow racism without confronting it head on as being totally unacceptable thinking and behaviour.It should be made a criminal offence to handicap any other human being because of their race or their colour.We cannot stop fools from thinking (or not thinking as the case may be) but we can legislate for wrong-doing, and we should. Never give up trying to change society for the better. It is your duty as an Anglo-Saxon Englishman.

Fahim Knight-El: Grand Secretary stated: "King Solomon's Temple is NOT central to the ancient and original form of Anglo-Saxon Free Masonrie, represented by the Grand Lodge of All England. It cannot be, because Free Masonrie is pre-Davidic." Grand Secretary: Just a comment that King Solomon's Temple is central to the Moderns form of freemasonry represented by the United Grand Lodge of England, the Grand Lodge of Scotland, the Grand Lodge of Ireland, and the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of America.King Solomon's Temple is NOT central to the ancient and original form of Anglo-Saxon Free Masonrie, represented by the Grand Lodge of All England. It cannot be, because Free Masonrie is pre-Davidic.

Fahim Knight-El: I wrote this article titled, "King Solomon's Temple the Basis of Freemasonry" a few months ago and have written a few subsequent article relative to Freemasonry since this one. I am not an authority on British or European Freemasonry. I do not think the UGLE or any Grand Orient should be the final regulatory entity on establishing Masonic "regularity". Masons come to the Masonic lodge from different religious backgrounds and experiences, but religion and Masonic teachings have some common threads—however, true Masonic philosophy (Speculative Freemasonry) is more rooted in the ancient philosophies that pre-date the three major Western religions Judaism, Christianity and Islam. These organized religions and their governing texts Torah, Gospel, and Qur'an; they borrowed their religious themes from more ancient sources. So Masonry embraces the ancient philosophy and not necessarily the religious schools of thought, which will only divide humanity. The Great Architect of the Universe implores Deity and this statement alone is in recognition that religion in of itself is shallow. Deity is known by many names and is received in different ways and manner relative to a culture and society—this is what Freemasonry embraces and anything less than this causes confusion.

Grand Secretary: Please carefully read our website. All is there, including a mountain of sources, references and attributions. I hope that this helps.
