THE AFRICAN AMERICANS IDENTITY CRISIS IS REAL: DNA TESTING CANNOT RESOLVE WHAT HISTORY HAS DONE
By Fahim A. Knight-El
Perhaps next to the United States of America, South Africa has stood as one of the most racist and reactionary nation's on earth towards Black people that had its inception in 1652 when the European exploiters arrived to this peaceful oasis, the Germans, British and the Dutch—the Boers created one of the most racist caste and class system to found anywhere in the annals of time next to the United States of America (and Perhaps next to India in which the Indo-Europeans had a mission to exterminate and subjugate the original dark skinned people of this sub-continent called the Dravidians and they were pushed southward and remain an exploited and oppressed people). I refer you to Runoko Rashidi and Ivan Van Sertima book titled: "African Presence in Early Asia". The invaders of Azania later called Afrikaners (lets not get it twisted these are not Africans, but robber barons and exploiters) I will never view nor accept the plight of the Afrikaners as having a legitimate right to the land of Azania (South Africa)—this racist minority are the present day beneficiaries of the Oppenheimers and the DeBeers (the bloodsuckers of the global poor and the kith and kin of the Rothschilds). These Robber Barons fought wars against themselves to steal the mineral riches and resources of the entire African continent (also millions of Africans were unjustly killed in the process of this land stealing and hording of
Many of my younger readership are to young to remember P.W. Botha and Pik Botha these were some vicious racist who committed all types of atrocities against the original people of Azania (South Africa)—many of them became displaced in shanty lands—waste lands in their own native country (this is why I respect some of the land agenda moves being made by President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, which the United Kingdom has labeled a criminal; it was the ancestors of British criminals that helped to rob and destabilize Africa. How can we trust them to give us an assessment on Mugabe?). It was the injustices that gave rise to Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress (ANC). I have always admired the courage of Nelson Mandela and I have equally admired the courage of his ex-wife, Winnie Mandela even more (she has never compromised with the enemy). They committed their lives fighting against Apartheid and made tremendous political, economic and social sacrifices to see a free Azania (
I am often getting a constant and polite gesture from my readership of when are you going to post something new. I thought that if I posted one Blog per month, it would have been suffice due to the length and extensiveness of the content of my articles, but the serious minded readers’ desire more from me and I am sympathetic and humbled by their plea. I will always respect those who are thirsty for knowledge and wisdom, but I did tell one brother, that I have written over 150 blogs/articles on various topics ranging from the Federal Reserve, New World Order, Illuminati, White Supremacy, Slavery, Religion, National Politics, Racism, International Banking, African History and culture, Freemasonry, globalism, health and nutrition, spirituality, Kemet (Egypt), etc., and I really do not have to write anything new, because I am quite sure that many of us have not mastered what I have previously written on the many subjects that I have covered on my blog (some of it represents a life body of work). I could in all actuality just re-post topics from my Blog archives and allow that to serve as my discussion for the week and/or month for next five years and be comfortable that there is enough knowledge to raise the conscious level of my people. It really takes a lot of time to research, write and construct timely and meaningful articles and to convey thoughts and ideas that are significant in which to enhance people's thinking and to take their thinking to the next level.
The Power Elite knows that ignorance comes at a high premium and knowledge has the power to transform individuals and society but they are willing to keep humanity confused and in darkness because they stand to be the ultimate beneficiaries. Black people are afraid of being connected to serious minded people (the status quo knows this and this is why they give us the likes of Reverend Al Sharpton, Benjamin Jealous, Marc Morial, etc.,—these handpicked puppets who are nothing but government agents and are masters of playing on the emotional question of race and politics (their missions are to keep black people under control), but they live privileged lifestyles at the expense of the gullible black poor—baiting them into believing that they stand for social justice. These hypercritics are about money and fame in which to create opportunities for themselves and their cronies; think about this, we have allowed one Al Sharpton (the so-called leader of black America who is really a media creation) to silence our critique of President Barack Obama in which it is considered an act of black betrayal and treason for another black person to render an unbiased assessment and evaluation of Obama the man, and his policies. I wonder what type of deals these Boule members have cut that makes it sacrilegious to render negative critique of President Obama. People like me have always challenged their ignorance and the safe house concept—we are living in some serious times and it is time to wake the hell up and start paying attention to our surroundings because the handwriting is on the wall. I know often my articles are extremely long and many would argue that I may lose people because of the length due to the limited attention span of most Americans and if I could repackaged my writing style, It might make me a more effective writer, as well as keep people engaged (well I am not going to change my writing style). I have thought about this, but I am more interested in providing you all with a body of knowledge that will always be well researched and definitive and from that perspective I am really not concern about length.
In reading "A Man From Another Land: How Finding My Roots Changed My Life" it only has reaffirmed for me that Chattel Slavery (1555-1865) was one of the greatest crimes that was ever committed against humanity; this brother's life story is indicative of the crime because it clearly comes across that Chattel Slavery was indeed a crime against humanity.
She responded by telling him that he was not from
Just take a moment to look at us, we are direct by-products of this criminal activity—every other nation of people could point to an origin and a land in which connects them to a history and past that has been pass down by generations. I could only answer him in the slave master's tongue (English) and to him I looked like I was from
Yes, I am familiar with the DNA swabbing and the latest science relative to the genetic tracing of placing African Americans in regions of Africa in which their specific family ancestral (tribes) line could be DNA traced (this does not begin to resolve the affect of the historical brutality and even this process will never make us whole again—nothing can right the magnitude of the wrong). I remember a few years ago when
I have a friend who is a Shia Muslim named Shahid Abdur-Rahman (who is African American) I truly like this brother spirit and just recently we were in a discussion, but like most religious people, it is difficult to have a rational discussion when it comes to critiquing one's faith tradition. I told Shahid Abdur-Rahman that the origin of civilization and culture sprung from Kemet (
Brother Shahid Abdur-Rahman had studied the most intimate details of the Khalifa Ali Ibn Abu Talib (and the history of his wife Fatima) who was considered the cousin and son-in-law of Prophet Muhammad Ibn Abdullah (PBUH) and according to Shia interpretation of history he was chosen by the prophet to succeed him at death as the appointed rightly guided Khalifa (Sunni Islam rejects this theological contention and view Ali as just one of the four rightly guided successors to the prophet). Shahid Abdur-Rahman started talking about the 12 Imams (they are waiting on the 12th Imam and have yet to realize that he has been amongst us since July 4, 1930)—I was taught that our history was written 25,000 years in advance then we live it (we are presently in 9,000 year of that predict history that has been laid out by 24 wise scientist and the significant of this Shia theological history is rooted in metaphor, symbolism and allegory—this brother knew the most important details of Shia Islamic history whether it was Iran (Persia) and/or Iraq history in which neither people's history belonged to him (but I do know that the present day people who occupy these said lands today are not the original people of Persia and Babylon, but are imposters).
Brother Shahid Abdur-Rahman did not know that I had a very good book in my possession titled: “Muhammad Messenger of Allah” by Qadi ‘Iyad Ibn Musa al-Yahsubi and I have another book titled: “Secret Societies: A History” which has a chapter titled, “The Old Man of the Mountains” in which I have learnt more about Shia Islam from reading this chapter than what most of Shia Islamic scholars combined have tried to teach me and this book also led me to accept that the Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (Shriners) has a philosophical and historical connection to Shia Islam and as well as segments of the Nation of Islam's theology has a similar connection to Shia Islam (I make no apology for this assessment). But as he was citing other people’s history, he did not once cite the oldest history of his Nubian ancestors of Kush and Kemet (these two Nubian Nations gave the world civilization) as a point of reference; this is why I could never follow any type of Islam that refuses to pay homage to the history and culture of the original man in which God himself, willed himself out of total triple darkness over 76 trillion years ago according to the lessons. My mind during the conversation with Shahid Abdur-Rahman had quickly shifted to the first Muezzin (caller to prayer) the Black Ethiopian slave named Bilal Ibn Rabah chosen by Prophet Muhammad himself to call the faithful to prayer (who was freed by Abu Bakr) who were persecuted and shun because of his dark skin (he is buried in Syria and these imposters have erected a tomb in honor of one of my African ancestors). Arab Islam has been as racist as European and American based Christianity toward people of African descent—I have never accepted the false image they have given us relative to Jesus, the son of Joseph (Yeshuaa Ben Yosef) this false image alone of Jesus, the Christ (Yeshuaa Ben Yosef) has enslaved the minds of the Christendom world. Bob Marley who is one of my prophets once stated “Free Your Minds From Mental Slavery”
I feel more, perhaps of what Randal Robinson, the former head of TransAfrica felt when he wrote the book titled: "Quitting America" in which he packed his family up and moved to Saint Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean, but it was his prior research and book titled, "The Debt: What America Owes to Blacks" both of these are very good reads that he discovered that Washington, DC and the streets and Government buildings were built by the hands of black people and he discovered the depth of racism that disallowed black people liberty and justice (what hypocrisy that was inculcated in the philosophical ideas of the Founding Fathers and the U.S. Constitution). But yet Robinson further discovered that it was truly free black labor—blood, sweat and tears that built some of most pristine architecture styled governmental edifices of
Nevertheless, this Blog is once again about individuals and people seeking my knowledge relative to certain themes such as the Nation of Gods and Earths, Nation of Islam and Minister Farrakhan, Moorish Science Temple, Freemasonry, etc., (in my next upcoming article I will delve into the above said topics because I have received many email hits on the above). I am not an expert on the Nation of Islam (or any of the other topics) because there are various factions and schisms that has taking place in the Nation of Islam since the death of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in 1975. Even with me using the term that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad is dead would automatically strike a negative cord with the followers of Minister Louis Farrakhan who believe according to one of their top shelf acclaimed theologian named Jabril Muhammad who authored a book in the late 1970s titled, "Is It Possible That The Honorable Elijah Muhammad Is Still Physically Alive?" He maintained that like Jesus, Messenger Muhammad escaped a death plot. He was formerly named Bernard Cushmeer and was the Phoenix, Arizona minister of Temple number 32 under the Honorable Elijah Muhammad (no doubt I have read some of Minister Jabril Muhammad's study guides and have listened to some of his public speeches, he is a heavy hitter and perhaps next to sister Tynetta Muhammad there are perhaps no other two Nation of Islam theologians who have gone to great research lengths to validate and substantiate the Life Given Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
But like Minister Farrakhan, both of them has to be in their late seventies and slowly embarking on eighty years of age and I do not see any replacements in the ranks. Jabril Muhammad, also wrote a very definitive book in the late 1960s titled, "This is the One" defending Elijah Muhammad's claim to messengership in which he used Bible and Qur'an to validate Muhammad's mission as a divine savior for black people. I believe everyone has a right to determine and exercise their religious convictions relative to faith and belief, I have personally chosen to distance myself from organized religion; therefore, I am not bound or bind by having to subscribe to the tenets of a structured religious belief system and could render criticism when I find it necessary. But even people in Blog sphere have tried to box me in and determine for me what my philosophical position is, I am a Free Thinker and a truth seeker, but most so-called religious people are robots and are not true Free Thinkers (they look for others to think for them and to interpreted their holy books for them), but even this is by design, it keeps us under control. I have no Imam or minister that I have to get approved by or to concur with a certain prescribed doctrine—lets us all be students of truth and knowledge. Free Thinking is a terrible thing to waste.
