This brief article is on the origin of Christmas and its so-called correlation to the SUN GOD concept, which the western parables of Jesus originated; moreover, December 25 is the BIRTH OF THE SUN GOD and in reality, this fabrication and/or truth has nothing to do with the Historical and Prophetic man called Jesus (there were actually two Jesus, perhaps another subject for another time) and this propaganda is continually being perpetuated in the name of tradition. But the beneficiaries of the Christmas tradition have always been the merchant class in the United States of America and around the world, which accumulates over 75% of their annual gross sales and financial profits during the month of December.

Allauddin Shabazz in his book titled, Symbolism, Holidays, Myths and Signs, the word “Christmas” means “Mass of Christ,” or as it came to be shortened, ‘Christ—mas.’ It came to non—Christians and Protestant from the Roman Catholic Church. And where did they get it?---NOT from the New Testament---NOT from the Bible—NOT from the original apostles who were personally instructed by Christ—but it gravitated in the fourth century into the Roman Church from paganism”

Tradition reaps in huge monetary gains and that HIDDEN HAND who does not believe in Christmas or Jesus---THEIR GOD IS MONEY and WE SHOULD CALL THEIR HOLY ONE “PROFIT” AND GREED. This writer, wonders does the SUN—DAY School teachers admonishes that the worship of the SUN was replaced with the divinity and worship of the SON popular associated with the man named Jesus (or Yeshuaa Ben Yosef). This article should not be viewed as an attack on the faith--tradition of Christianity, but like the Reggae revolutionary artist Bob Marley’s used to sing “NONE CAN FREE OUR MINDS, BUT OURSELVES.”

Allauddin Shabazz book validates this contention relative to the commercialization and the nonreligious connection Christmas has with the birth of Jesus; in his small, but powerful book titled, Symbolism, Holidays, Myths and Signs he goes on to state, “Christmas has become a commercial season. It’s sponsored, kept alive, by the heaviest retail advertisement campaigns of the year. You see a masqueraded “Santa Claus” in many stores. Ads keep the masses deluded and deceived about the ‘beautiful Christmas spirit.’ The newspaper, who sells ads, print flowery editorials exalting and eulogizing the pagan season, and spirit. Gullible people have become so inoculated, many take offense when told the truth. But the ‘Christmas spirit’ is created each year, not to honor Christ, but to sell merchandise!” (reference: Symbolism, Holidays, Myths and Signs” by Allauddin Shabazz).

This writer understands and humbly admits and accepts that a 4,000 word Blog only places serious limitations on a subject of this magnitude where scholars such as: Gerald Massey, Albert Churchward, E.A. Wallis Budge, Josef Ben Jochannan, Alvin Boyd Kuhn, Godfrey Higgins, John G. Jackson, Kersey Graves, Cheikh Anta Diop, Manly P. Hall, John Henrik Clarke, Jacob Boehme, Arthur Edward Waite, G.R.S. Mead, Louis H. Spencer, H.G. Wells, H.P. Blavatsky, Ishakamusa Barashango, J.Van Rijckenborgh, Albert Pike, George Oliver, J.S.M. Ward, etc., have spent many years researching and writing scholarly treatise on the above subject.

This thumbnail sketch, is by no means, written to represent a definitive and exhaustive study on the this subject; there are to many links, which expands to the schools of thought of esoteric, religious, philosophical, occult, metaphysical science and the truth extends to many cultures, and far beyond the limitations of this research could ever begin to address. But it should not be viewed that the author perhaps does not understand the depth and complexity of this subject pertaining to Jesus, a god of the Sun and the origin of Christmas.

E. Curtis Alexander in an essay titled, African Foundations of Christendom he stated, “Christendom began as a Council of Bishops in Nicea, a city in Bithynia, in Asia Minor on the southside of the Black Sea. The Council was convened by the Roman Emperor Constantine. Many events took place at this Council and the formation of many theological and theosophical doctrines were established such as the Trinity, the name of JESUS, THE Virgin Birth and perhaps the biggest act was making of the Bible. The books that were not canonical at this Council are known to us today as “Lost Books of the Bible’ and the ‘Forgotten Books of Eden’ ” (Reference: “African Foundations of Christendom” by E. Curtis Alexander).

In a book compiled by William Josiah Sutton titled, The Illuminati 666 stated, “There is no scriptural evidence that supports the Birth of Christ as being December 25th; but history says December 25th was kept thousands of years before the Birth of Christ, in honor of the pagan Messiah. Another name for Tammuz, the pagan-child, was ‘Baal-bereth’ which means Lord of the Fir Tree.” (Reference: “The Illuminati 666” by William Josiah Sutton).

The majority of the scholarship on this subject totally contradicts the Christian version of the biblical man known as Jesus Christ, but reaffirms this story within the scheme of historical and mythological allegory, metaphors, symbolism, prototypes, similes, etc. There is a sizable amount of precedent evidence, which informs us, that the entire story of Jesus relative to his birth, death, resurrection, and ascension were not concepts indigenous to European cultures (although, it flourished in that region of the world after they came in contact with Ancient Egypt (Kemet).They borrowed the Solar God concept from Egypt. (Reference: “Ancient Egypt: The Light of the World” by Gerald Massey).

John G. Jackson in his enlighten book titled, Ethiopia and the Origin of Civilization stated, “A study of the images of ancient deities of both the Old and New Worlds reveals their Ethiopic origin. Thus is noted by Kenneth R. H. Mackenzie in T.A. Buckley’s CITIES OF THE ANCIENT WORLD, p. 180:--‘From the wooly texture of the hair, I am inclined to assign to the Buddha of India, the Fuhi of China, the Sommonacom of the Siamese, Xaha of the Japanese, the Quetzalcoatl of the Mexicans, the same, and indeed an African, or rather Nubian, origin.’

Jackson continues on to state, “most of the black gods were regarded as crucified saviors who died to save mankind by being nailed to a cross, or tied to a tree with arms outstretched as if on a cross, or slain violently in some other manner. Of these Crucified SAVIORS, THE MOST PROMINENT WERE OSIRIS, AND HORUS OF EGYPT, KRISHNA OF INDIA, MITHRA OF PERSIA, QUETZALCOATL OF MEXICO, ADDONIS OF BABYLONIA AND ATTIS OF PHRYGIA. NEARLY ALL OF THESE SLAIN SAVIOR-GODS HAVE THE FOLLOWING STORIES RELATED ABOUT THEM:---THEY ARE BORN OF A VIRGIN, ON OR NEAR DEC.25TH (CHRISTMAS); THEIR BIRTH ARE HERALDED BY A STAR; THEY ARE BORN EITHER IN A CAVE OR STABLE; THEY ARE SLAIN, COMMONLY BY CRUCIFIXION; THEY DESCEND INTO HELL, AND RISE FROM THE DEAD AT THE BEGINNING OF SPRING (EASTER) AND FINALLY ASCEND INTO HEAVEN.” (Reference: “Ethiopia and the Origin of Civilization” by John G. Jackson).

There is overwhelming historical evidence that the worship of the SUN GOD (which was celebrated by many names and in many forms depending upon the culture and nation) Jesus was a story of antiquity, that had played out on the stage of human civilizations, perhaps some thousands of years before the actual birth of the man called Jesus who lived 2,000 years ago and before Constantine concocted and devised the Christian Creed (reference: Reza Aslan Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, which was designed to control how Christianity would be disseminated, as well as, theologically protect the half-truths, distortions, and outright lies. They lied about the historical details of the man called Jesus, the Christ. (Reference: “The Historical Origin of Christianity” by Walter Williams).

Wikipedia online research engine stated, “December 25 was also considered to be the date of the Winter Solstice, which the Romans called bruma. It was therefore the day the Sun proved itself to be "unconquered" despite the shortening of daylight hours. (When Julius Caesar introduced the Julian Calendar in 45 BC, December 25 was approximately the date of the solstice. In modern times, the solstice falls on December 21 or 22.) The Sol Invictus festival has a "strong claim on the responsibility" for the date of Christmas, according to the Catholic Encyclopedia. Several early Christian writers connected the rebirth of the sun to the birth of Jesus (sun/Son). "O, how wonderfully acted Providence that on that day on which that Sun was born . . . Christ should be born,"

Anthony Browder in his book titled, Nile Valley Contributions to Civilization he stated, “Auras, Aset, and Heru is the first story recorded in history of man of a holy royal family (the Trinity), immaculate conception, virgin birth and resurrection. Evidence of this Trinity is known to have exist.” (Reference: “Nile Valley Contributions to Civilization” by Anthony Browder).

H.P. Blavatsky in her monumental book titled, Isis Unveiled through meticulous research traces the original man’s history and culture back to Egypt (Kemet) which all philosophy, science, theology, and in essences human thought evolved. she stated, “What Egypt taught to others she certainly did not acquire by the international exchange of ideas and discoveries with her Semitic neighbors, NOR FROM THEM DID SHE RECEIVE HER STIMULUS. ‘The more we learn of the Egyptians,’ observes the writer of a recent article, ‘The Marvelous they seem!’ From whom could she have learned her wondrous arts, the secrets of which died with her? She sent no agents throughout the world to learn what others knew; but to her the wise men of neighboring nations resorted for knowledge. Proudly secluding herself within her enchanted domain, the fair queen of the desert created wonders as if by the sway of a magic staff. ‘Nothing” remarks the same writer, whom we shall elsewhere quote, ‘proves that civilization and knowledge rise and progress with her in the case of other peoples, but everything seems to be referable, in the same perfection, to the earliest dates. That no nation knew as much as herself, is a fact demonstrated by history.”

There is no doubt, that the story of Jesus was steeped in duality and shrouded in the mysteries, but the WICKLY WISE, the ten (10) percent who the Honorable Elijah Muhammad referred to as, “The rich, the slavemakers of the poor, who teach poor lies to believe that the almighty true and living God, is a spook and cannot be seen with the physical eye. Otherwise known as the bloodsuckers of the poor.”

Muhammad further maintained that December 25 was the birthday of Nimrod who was mentioned in the Bible (Old Testament) he is styled as a mighty hunter who is in opposition to God and he turned against the teachings of Moses (the law giver). Nimrod was born 300 years before Christ. Thus, he manipulated the teachings of Moses and set-up the early pagan empires such as Greece and Rome. According to the Bible he is the son of Cush. Nimrod killed his father and married his mother, whose name was Ester, and the Easter celebration is also tied to advent of Nimrod and the entire SUN GOD scheme. (Reference: The True History of Elijah Muhammad” Edited by Nasir Makr Hakim)

Moreover, when Nimrod’s wife (his mother) had their first child, he feared that people would lose respect for him, if they knew he was making babies through his own mother (it was a secret that they were married) therefore to fool the people Nimrod told people that the Holy Ghost had impregnated his mother. This was beginning of the GREAT LIE told about the birth of Jesus.” there is a lot in Muhammad’s lesson and was Christmas set-up by non-Christians who do not believe in Jesus Divinity, but has a stronger conviction to manipulate money and play on the theological ignorance of the people. (Reference: “The History of Nimrod” by Elijah Muhammad).

Manly P. Halls stated, “For reasons which they doubtless considered sufficient, those who chronicled the life and acts of Jesus found it advisable to metamorphose him into a solar deity. The HISTORICAL JESUS WAS FOR GOTTEN; nearly all the salient incidents recorded in the four Gospels have their correlations in the movement, phases, or functions of the heavenly bodies. Among other allegories borrowed by Christianity from pagan antiquity is the story of the beautiful, blue-eyed Sun God, with His golden hair falling upon his shoulders, robed from head to foot in spotless white and carrying in His arms the Lamb of God, symbolic of the vernal equinox. This handsome youth is a composite of Apollo, Osiris, Orpheus, Mithras, and Baccus, for HE has certain characteristics in common with each of these pagan deities.” Manly P. Hall whom this writer considers one of the foremost free thinkers in the history of mankind and he uncovers and interprets symbolism, signs and delved into ancient wisdom unlike any other this writer had read (Reference: “The Secret Teachings of All Ages” by Manly P. Hall).

We have been taught and perhaps more indoctrinated into believing that December 25, represented the birth of Jesus Christ of Nazareth who lived perhaps 2,000 years ago in around modern day Palestine. There is some evidence that points to Jesus birth place being in the ancient city of Bethlehem, but most Biblical historians have argued that Jesus was born in Nazareth. but there was a plot and a conspiracy orchestrated by King Herod to kill the first born male; reference: Hugh J. Schonfield; The Passover Plot, thus Mary’s pregnancy and Jesus birth became a top priority and secret, this cloaking and concealment was only necessary to protect Jesus from his conspirators. (Reference: The Jesus Scroll” by Donovan Joyce).

This next quote is from a book titled, The Lost Books of the Bible to Jesus Christ, His Apostles and Their Companions originally published in 1820 by William Hone. Most Christians do not know their were some lost books to the original Bible or perhaps this writer should say that a number of books were deliberate and intentionally removed from the Bible as an act of deception. Nevertheless, Hone stated, “Now Herod, perceived that the wise men did delay and not return to him, called together the priests and wise men and said, Tell me in what place the Christ should be born? And when they replied, in Bethlehem, a city of Judea, he began to contrive in his own mind the death of the Lord Jesus Christ. But an Angel appeared to Joseph in his sleep, and said, Arise take the child and his mother and go into Egypt as soon as the cock crows. So he arose, and went.” (Reference: “The Lost Books of the Bible to Jesus Christ” by William Hone).

December 25 had nothing to do with Jesus Birthday in fact his name was probably more like Yeshua Ben Yosef or Isa Bin Yusuf (Jesus the Son of Joseph) in accordance to the Amharic and/or Hebrew languages that were spoken in that region of the world, long before the English language was even a thought. Jesus was atypical of pagan tradition that evolved around the son god concept and there were many more world saviors who had similar histories of Jesus and many of the things we ascribed to Jesus were actually borrowed from more ancient cultures and civilizations. The birth, death, resurrection and ascension fables seemed to have been concocted by money changers and merchants which as stated above, many of them do not believe in Jesus divinity, but the commercialization and the exploitation of his name is their only motive. (Reference: “The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors” by Kersey Graves).

How then did December 25, become associated with the birth of Jesus Christ? John King in his monumental work titled, The Celtics Druids: Seasonal Cycles of the Ancient Celts stated, “In fact, Christ birth-date was deliberately and artificially set, during the third century AD, to coincide with, absorb and supersede the pagan festival dedicated to Saturn. It is not even certain that Christ was born in the winter: many legends speak of his being born in the spring. The controversy caused by the switch from the old Julian calendar to the Gregorian persists in the popular folk story that Christ was actually born on 6 January, and that at midnight on the eve of that day animals kneel in homage to the Christ child in mangers and stables. Many of the original customs of the Saturnalia have survived into the Christmas celebrations with remarkable persistence. The theme of the advent and the Virgin Births is, of course, not Celtic or Roman, although there are virgin births in other religions and mythologies.” (Reference: “The Celtics Druids: Seasonal Cycles of the Ancient Celts” by John King).

King’s research points to the fact, that the entire Christmas tradition, perhaps has it roots in pagan tradition (interpreted to mean Christmas is a non-Christian ritual), which ancient people had developed sophisticated customs and rituals that pre-dated the birth of Jesus. The Ancients charted the universe son, moon and stars, thus, developing agricultural rites that paid homage to the power of life and death as it was seen in nature (the Freemasons, Rosicrucian, Elks, Illuminati, Sun Gods of Kemet and quite naturally the Sun Gods of Ancient Greece, Rome, etc., the practitioners of these various crafts understood these principles better than so-called Christians), as well as others have relied in an interdependent manner on the winter and summer solstice for ritual justification and theological explanation. Nature dies (winter months) and it resurrects itself every year (spring time) and all of the above Societies, as well as Christianity developed elaborate customs and theological rites giving to some aspect of death and resurrection that was observed in the natural creation. (Reference: “Secret Societies: Inside The World’s Most Notorious Organizations” by John Lawrence Reynolds).

Moreover, as the earth rotates on her axis the Ancients became infatuated with the mystique of the winter and summer solstice. The word Sol is a Latin word meaning Sun and word Stice mean to stand still and in scientific terms the winter solstice and the summer solstice are one of the ecliptic at which its distance from the celestial equator is greatest and which is reached by the Sun each year around June 22nd and December 22nd. In our hemisphere (North America) December 22, starts winter, in which days get shorter and nights get longer and it was believed by the Ancients that the Sun died during this time, but the manipulators of truth switched and presented us with the story of Jesus, the “Son God” and then concocted a story that is very much inconsistent with the Holy Bible about the events surrounding Jesus birth. (Reference: Recapturing the African Mind” by Bruce Bridges).

For example, in the book titled, The Book the Church Doesn’t Want You to Read, edited by Tim C. Leedom. Leedom maintains that, “It is also noteworthy that during the month of December, Bethlehem and its surroundings are subject to wintry cold weather, chilling rains, and sometime snow. One does not find shepherds with their flocks outside at night during that time. This is not a recent weather phenomenon… all of this indicates that weather conditions in Bethlehem in December do not fit the Bible’s description of the events connected with the birth of Jesus Christ---Luke 2:8-11.” (Reference: “The Book the Church Doesn’t Want You to Read” by Tim C. Leedom).

Kersey Graves in his book titled, The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors, wrote about the historical fact that there were at least Sixteen Saviors that resembled the story attributed to Jesus Christ. He maintained that all of these world Saviors were born of virgin birth (immaculate conception), wise men predicted their birth, the heavens roared, born on December 25, died, resurrected and ascended to heaven. These various Saviors born on December 25th could be found in Kemet (Egypt), India, Persia, China, Mexico, Greece, Rome, Germany and all of them represented aspects of the Sun Gods who were deified long before the man, we came know as Jesus ever walked upon this earth. It was at the Council of Nicaea (modern day Turkey) on May 20, 325 AD that Constantine and his Biblical scholars conveniently and systematically set-up Christianity (meaning the establish creed and doctrine) and in most instance it went contrary and was outright inconsistent with the original teachings of Jesus.

The two authors Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas in their book titled, The Hiram Key: Pharaohs, Freemasons and the Discovery of the Secrets Scrolls of Jesus , describes some of the challenges that the non-Christian Constantine the Great and the Council of
Nicaea faced, “The result of the Council was the ‘Nicene Creed’, which sought to reconcile the differences between various Christian factions and to avoid doctrinal gulfs that had looked as though they might split the Eastern Church away completely. The rulings that emerged still provide the basis for most Church establishments today, covering many points of detail such as when congregations should stand and when they should sit during services. The central issue, however, was the problem of whether Jesus Christ was a man or a god, and if he were indeed a god, what was the precise nature of his divinity.” (Reference: “The Hiram Key: Pharaohs, Freemasons and the Discovery of the Secrets Scrolls of Jesus” by Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas).

Also, the entire system of Freemasonry is built on the on the Solar Deity hypothesis; thus, one can point to the allegorical story of Hiram Abiff (this story has no Biblical foundation) and he too was a prototype of the SUN GOD conjecture. Hiram Abiff was considered a Master Builder of King Solomon’s Temple and served as a symbolic  duality in Operative Masonry (Guild Masonry—Trade Skills) and Speculative (philosophical) Freemasonry and He is equivalent to Jesus in fact and fiction. Shabazz once again in his book Symbols, Holidays, Myths and Signs stated, “In Masonry the sun has many symbols. One expression of the solar energy is Solomon, whose name Sol-om-on is the name for the supreme light in three different languages. Hiram, the Chiram (Hiram) of the Chalders, is also a color deity, and the story of his attack and murder by three Ruffians.”

The circumstances of Hiram Abiff’s death transcend earthly reality and moves into immortality (eternal life and the realm of infinity). Hiram Abiff was murdered at high noon by three Jewish Ruffians that conspired to steal his LIGHT (knowledge and wisdom). Death is viewed as temporary, no different than the changing of the seasons and Jesus life is styled as the zenith of the concept of immorality (Christians believe that Christ has ascended to heaven and is sitting on the right hand of the Father, but will return). Hiram Abiff’s fate is only temporary just as all the other SOLAR DEITIES, which life and death are charted by the sun, moon and stars. Hiram Abiff like Jesus suffered a cruel death and was resurrected (He was raised from a dead level) from the grave in which he eventually stood Ninety degrees upright as a LIVING PERPENDICULAR ON THE SQUARE.

The Worshipful Master stationed is in the East (there is where the Sun Rises) and HE is considered the light of the Masonic Lodge and as the physical sun gives light which to set the earth into rotation, the Worshipful Master is styled as Wisdom and the Craft should radiate from his illumination and enlighten coming out of the EAST. The sun as it crosses the meridian sets in the WEST and this is the station of the Senior Warden and HE is styled Strength and in the SOUTH stationed Junior Warden, he is styled as Beauty. (Reference: “Who is Hiram Abiff?” by JSM Ward)

John G. Jackson in his book titled, Man, God, and Civilization he stated, “Interesting relics of ancient sun worship may be observed in the ceremonies, symbols and ritual of modern Freemasonry. According to Masonic Tradition, the word of Freemason can be traced back to ancient Egypt. It was derived from two Egyptian words, ‘phee” (the sun) and ‘mas’ (a child), meaning children of the sun or sons of light; and from this combination we derived the word freemason. A Mason is advised to travel to the East in search of light, for the sun rises in the East. The Masonic initiation rites like those of the ancient mysteries of Egypt, are drama based on the astronomical allegory of the death and resurrection of the sun, and the doctrines of the unity of god and the immortality of man; and these tenets are learned from Dr. Oliver’s Dictionary of Symbolic Masonry , that a lodge has their lights situated in the East, the South and the West respectively.”

Jackson continues, “They are so placed in allusion to the sun rises in the East, cross the meridian by way of the south and sets in the West. There is no light in the North part of the lodge, since the sun directs no rays from that area. Every Masonic Lodge Should be oriented due East and sets in the West because the sun, the glory of the Lord, rises in the East and sets in the West and in the lodge, the Master stands in the East, the Junior Warden in the South and the Senior Warden in the West, which positions are representative of sunrise, noon, and sunset, respectively.” (Reference: “Man, God, and Civilization” by John G. Jackson).

Perhaps the most colorful of all the SUN GODS was Osiris of ancient Kemet and in reality, this writer could have started this topic off with Osiris ended with Osiris, because of all the SUN GODS, it was from his legend that all other legends sprung. The Christianity Trinity perhaps originated in ancient Egypt long before Jesus the Christ. Osiris, Isis and Heru—is the father, son, and the holy ghost. These ancients’ tales were derived from agriculture and fertility festival rites. Osiris had a jealous brother names Seth (Satan) who conspired against him in a vicious plot to take his life just as the Cain and Able story of your Christian Bible.

Seth succeeded in murdering his righteous and innocent brother moreover, cutting his body—up in 14 pieces and depressed the pieces in the river to be ever lost. But Osiris had a zealous sister named Nephthys who desired to search the river in order to find Osiris to reconstruct his body. She found Osiris’ body, some historians say that she found his body in pieces scattered throughout the vast river with the exception of his penis. Osiris’ sex organ was forever lost. The Egyptian started constructing the obelisk symbols as duplication of Osiris lost penis. Osiris being associated in the larger scheme of the sun. However, there are many different slants to the Osiris myth.

By Fahim A. Knight-El

Let me weigh-in on this debate that has been ensuing between black people’s opposition to these one hundred (100) Negro pastors that met and had a dialogue with presidential candidate Donald Trump in which they have been catching plenty of heat from the so-called African American community and I must say, it is understandable. However, I personally do not think there was anything fundamentally wrong for black leaders to sit down with any of the candidates who are running for the 2016 Oval office (White House) and have a discussion. Thus, in doing so was an act of self-determination and as free citizens, we should have the right to meet with whom we please. But here is issue that I had with these Negro preachers; they met with this man with no real agenda and just to sit in Donald Trump's “Big House” (Five Star Trump Tower) to have some fried chicken and watermelon was ludicrous and ultimately, it represented a very poor political strategy and tactic on behalf of these Negro preachers, which garnished no real political leverage or political benefit (it was essentially a two and half hour meeting of coming away with no concessions and amounted to little or no substance).

I see Hillary Clinton, as being a lot more dangerous and sinister than Donald Trump, but sense she is a Democratic candidate, she gets a free pass from so-called African Americans. But one does not become U.S. Secretary of State unless you know how to play the deceptive foreign policy game—trust me she knows a lot more about the Benghazi hit than she is letting on. When she became U.S. Secretary of State, she used her international influence to assist her husband former President Bill Clinton by positioning him and exerting her State Department international influence to economically empower Bill Clinton’s Global Initiative foundation (so-called non-profit humanitarian organization). Bill Clinton’s Global Initiative is a very powerful foundation and it was established to lobby nations that sought his international influence (Bill ‘Slick Willie’ was in the business of selling influence and is very good at it). Moreover, Bill Clinton has raked in millions of dollars advising Developing Nations by securing them high interest international loans via the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank and further using his international influence to impact the political, economic and social systems of client nations. Also the Clinton-Bush Fund allegedly got 54 million dollars for the Haiti Relief Fund after the 2010 devastating earthquake that registered 7.0 magnitude on the Richter scale, which killed more than 230,000 people in Haiti. Bush and Clinton were two rogues who stole a lot money that was earmarked for the Haiti Government.
(reference: Peter Schweizwer: Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich).

The Jews represent just three (3) percent of the United States population, but they remain the most powerful religion/race in America and they dictate the collective political future of the Jewish people (here is the difference between them and us, they are organized). All United States politicians have an unspoken and unwritten mandate to sit down with the Jewish leadership, which is carried out by an organization called the American Israel Public Affairs Committee or AIPAC who works in the interest of the Jewish electorate. The first question that is always posed to a potential candidate is, what is your position on the State of Israel and will your foreign policy initiatives unconditionally back Israel? And you must privately and publically adopt and embrace the Jewish Agenda, what I am saying is not rooted in anti-Semitism—they exercise common sense in order to lobby for the best political deal for the Jewish people—this is common sense. These 100 Negro preachers had no real agenda other than being glad to be summons by this powerful white man. I would have said thank you Mr. Trump for the invitation to come to your lavish hotel in New York, but here is the BLACK AGENDA and if you can meet our political demands; perhaps after this discussion is over, we will take your response back to our voting constituents in which we might consider you as a possible viable candidate—but lets be smart as a voting bloc, it is not about being just loyal to the Democratic Party, but we must learn to vote issues and not parties (reference: John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt; The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy).

I am not attacking these Negro preachers for exercising their right to meet with Donald Trump, they had every right to do so and I saw nothing wrong with them having met with Mr. Donald Trump, but someone styled it as an endorsement meeting and this is where it got a little fuzzy with me. Trump has said some racist and denigrating things towards black people and Latinos and for the black clergy to endorse him, would have been hypocritical at best and inconsistent with the moral and ethical teachings of the Gospel. But this is why there was such confusion and political uncertainty being spewed by black social critics and pundits (and the black community) who had placed the meeting with Trump and the possible political intent of the meeting under a microscope and used the media to expose and scrutinize those black pastors invitees who sat down with Donald Trump. Trump in term, was smart enough to use the meeting as a black Christian leadership endorsement ploy who had gathered in support of his political agenda and for Trump this strategy would serve up two agendas, it would simultaneously create good black public relations and show forth his so-called influence amongst the religious community in general (of course this meeting with the black clergy would not have satisfied the evangelical right). However, once the media exposed the Negro pastors in attendance, Trump’s plan has somewhat exploded in his face.

A true Black agenda, would having included a cross section of opinions and planks from various sectors of the Black leadership spectrum, but 100 Negro preachers, I do not think so—many of them lacked the political, economic and social understanding of devising a collective Black Agenda. They do not have to reinvent the wheel, the Jews have provided us with a perfect model of how this has been done inside of American politely for centuries. Now, I do applaud these Negroes for thinking outside the box and not being dog-tied to the Democratic Party and for possessing a willingness to sit down with a Republican candidate and have a discussion (for me that is a sign of intelligence). There is nothing wrong with that strategy. But go in the room with a clear and agreed agenda and I do not care how many pork chops, fatback sandwiches, pig ears and hog knuckles that Trump brought out. Just say Sir thank you for this poison, but we will not compromise the Black Agenda. These Negro preachers know that they were not qualified to sit down with a Devil like Donald Trump.

The problem this writer is having with this upcoming election is how quickly we develop political amnesia; from 1865 the majority of African Americans were affiliated with the Republican Party, the party of Abraham Lincoln, the so-called great emancipator. African American from 1932 beginning with the election of Franklin D. Roosevelt to the present day 2015 have overwhelmingly voted for white democratic candidates on the national, state, and local levels. This writer has ascertained that ninety-two (92) percent of African Americans are registered democrats. This writer personally thinks this political predicament and strategy to be insane, this writer doesn’t know, if you can call it a strategy—this is more of a faulty political strategy; in particular in a two party system. It is political suicide because, it allows the Democratic party to take the black vote for granted—they understand the political numbers as being just an eight (8) percent differential and this does not create the type of pendulum swing needed to generate enough external political leverage which to keep the Democratic Party honest.                          
Politicians only respect an electorate that can impose political consequences, but those above numerical variables based on registered party affiliations do not pose an equitable number balance, which could alter or derail a candidate potential to being elected; hypothetically if forty (40) percent of blacks were registered Republicans and the other sixty (60) percent were Democrats this would automatically create a political leverage. They then could definitely command more political respect from this two party system, in particular from the Democratic Party who for seventy-five (83) years has taking the black vote for granted and would definitely build unimaginable credibility with the Republican Party. If African Americans are going to effectively play American style politics, this will require and mandate for them to devise a new political strategy and tactic that moves beyond being a majority one bloc political party, which has had its benefits at times and simultaneously, can be politically detrimental.

The majority of traditional black leadership has had many legitimate political reasons to sway black voters away from the Democratic Party based on neglect and their inadequate ability from time too time in addressing issues relevant to blacks, in particular and the nation in general. The black religious right from that perspective has demonstrated more outwardly courage by their willingness to cut ties with the Democratic Party. Politics is not based on loyalty, yet loyalty has its place in politics, but expediency is ordinarily the glue that holds political coalitions together and by refusing to acknowledge this reality has entrapped blacks politically, which has render them politically inconsequential and politically ineffective. Although, blacks represent one of the largest “organized” voting blocs in America and still have very little power to alter change. Something is wrong with this political dynamic.

Black Americans just do not understand the power they have in bloc voting and political leveraging, as well as, the importance of voting issues and not a candidate’s party affiliation. This writer has been trying to break this ineffective traditional cycle amongst blacks for over two decades. But parting ways with tradition is not always easy; it is a mindset that is inculcated in a set of perceived values that are not viewed from the lens of right and wrong, but social, political, economic components found compatible to a worldview.

However, the Republican Party do not know how to play political shrinks and administer mental health treatment and for over eighty (80) years have for the most part ignored the black electorate and hadn’t made any real appeals to tap into this traditional Democratic base, which in 2015 feel abandoned and ostracized by the Democratic party. This writer is by know means advocating the Republican conservative agenda nor is he suggesting that African Americans leave the Democratic Party, but what he is suggesting, is destroying the boogieman syndrome that has been associated with the Republican Party relative to African Americans, which allows the Democratic Party to continue to be in the best position election after election for receiving the African American vote. Yet at the same time the Democratic Party do not have to make any political concessions to 13% of the American population because of foolish and irresponsible leadership that possess an insane love for the Democratic Party.
Many blacks do not know why they are democrats, they often inherited the donkey as family political tradition or they heard some ignorant preachers, mis-educated teachers, and self-fulfilling politicians advised them that it was sinister to cast a ballot for a Republican candidate without ever hearing whether or not they agreed or disagreed with the message.

Many do not know that from 1865 to 1932 blacks overwhelmingly were republicans but in 1929, blamed the Republicans and Hubert Hoover’s administration for the Great Depression and the economic decline of America. Blacks left the Republican Party in wholesale numbers and this historical coincidence has worked to their long-term political detriment. Nevertheless, in the deep recess of their minds, black Americans seem to think that they have a moral obligation to unconditionally support and vote the democratic ticket. It seem logical to me that since 1932, there should be enough historical evidence, which documents political betrayal and broken promises made by the Democratic Party to black Americans. In essence, we love the devil, because he gives us nothing. Why don’t the so-called black leadership come to understand and advocate the power of voting the issues and leverage the black vote as an uncommitted and non-partisan bloc whose main interest is negotiating the best political deal for black Americans regardless of candidates’ party affiliations?

1). We need to know exactly and specifically where Donald Trump stands on one of the most important modern issues of the 21st century, which is Black Lives Matter and the effects police brutality is having on Black men inside of America, in particular (not to preclude our sisters as well). If elected president, what public policy would he choose in dealing with institutionalized racism and the systemic backlashes, it has on our community? These are terrorist in blue uniforms and they are not Middle Eastern or Arab (and are not militant radical Muslims). A terrorist is in the eyes of the beholder; those that killed Freddie Grey, Travyone Martin, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, LaQuan McDonald and worst yet the killing of a 12 year old in Cleveland, Ohio named Tamir Rice, Walter L. Scott, etc. What does Donald Trump has to say about these type issues?

2).Black unemployment rate, is twice that of white America, what plans does Trump has to equalize and balance the employment playing field and solve this dilemma in America and create jobs that will directly impact us as a demographic?

3). Black servicemen and women who are disproportionally and negatively effected when pursing benefits via the Veterans Administration. Black soldiers have always returned to America as second class citizens and their loyalty, bravery and patriotism were met with American style racism—the American flag and the Confederate flag for blacks have been one in the same—both have historically denied blacks freedom, justice and equality thus my people have caught pure hell under both flags (my loyalty and patriotism is to God and not the United States of America). Although, many of these black Veterans were injured in combat deployments, but is met with a harsh reality when they attempt to access benefits services through the VA. They are often turned down or get loss in the bureaucratic paperwork game (does Trump understand that in a racist society there are a different set of standards when blacks attempt to access services?) Does Donald Trump further understand and realize that many African American Veterans are walking around America untreated with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and cannot get the proper help and mental health treatment needed after serving in the United States Arm Forces—this is how the government treat them afterwards.

Where does Trump stand on funding black and Latinos poor depilated schools and underprivileged school districts that are failing our children educationally, which continues to render them a poor education (which leads our children back into a cycle of poverty) under a certified curriculum called Common Core in which blacks still possess the highest drop out rate in our nation as a whole—nations such as China, Japan and India are preparing their children with a superior education in line with the age of information (global objective).
This generation is growing up as part of the global information age and based on technology, have tremendous access to information, the global superhighway or the infobahn in which the Internet has altered the political, economic and social paradigm by changing the geopolitical landscape of the globe and we now have the opportunity to access information in real time.

This age of technology has allowed us to compete on levels that was unimaginable twenty-years ago and this benefit has further allowed us to enter and participate in a new age called the digital age; this is a very exciting time to be on the planet and there is no turning back. The United States now stands as 29th in math and 35th in science amongst the world’s nations as an industrialized nation relative to education in the two said major disciplines. Where does Trump stand in raising the educational bar and standards in order that our children will be prepared to interact in a global economy and society? Most of these Negro preachers do not have a clue to the global implications that education and curriculum will have on the future success and/or future failure of black people. They were just window dressing and showboating and happy to be at 725 Fifth Avenue between East 56th Street and East 57th Street (Trump Tower) in Midtown Manhattan, New York City.   

4). Where does Mr. Donald Trump stand on the issues of mass incarceration where the United Stated Department of Justices estimates that 63% of the federal and state prisons are African American males. Thus, how will Trump address the issue of the Prison Industrial Complex that disproportionally affects black males? The U.S. has over 7 million people incarcerated the largest prison population of any industrialized nation. You who are students of facts you can read about this in a book titled, "The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness" by Michelle Alexander.


5). Where does Mr. Trump stand on the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) that has allowed poor people to at least obtain medical care and coverage in which African Americans and other poor people are the beneficiaries of this public policy or will he join on with other conservative Republicans and work to repeal the Affordable Care Act?                


6). What is Mr. Donald Trump’s position on providing more foreign aid and economic assistance to Africa (and does he favor international debt forgiveness to these poor and Developing Nations who have been victims of Western Government exploitation) in which poor black African nations are having to deal with hunger, diseases, famine, war, economic instability and mortality rates that are off the chart (but does he understand that these crisis are being induced by the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank). I think it should be unlawful and a crime for a small minority of 5% an Elitist Cabal (bloodsuckers of the poor) that controls 95% of the world’s wealth, which throughout history has continued to create the world’s wealth disparity that plagues the globe.
This unjust social phenomenon has led to global poverty amongst so-called Third World and Developing nations in which poor people are forced to survive off minuscule resources and poverty as I have stated above, has led to high mortality rates, diseases, curable illnesses, poor education, etc. Many of these Developing nations possess vast natural resources, but their wealth is being exploited by Western Developed nations, which also, includes China and Russia and other world superpowers. I would like to see the world’s wealth equally distributed amongst the masses of the people. This is the only way we can bring balance to the political, economic and social dilemma facing humanity. But no one gives a damn about black suffering, but as soon as a so-called terrorist incident takes places in Europe, Negroes and white folk cry crocodile tears—I cry when I see poor destitute African children with pop bellies and are dying from starvation and sickness. I wonder does this white billionaire Trump feel the pain of my people.

7). What is Mr. Donald Trump’s position on the closing of Historical Black Colleges and Universities and the poor financial situation they are in and what public policy will he implement and support in assisting our gems HBCUs. Will Trump entertain student loan debt forgiveness for poor people or will he continue to use his influence to fatten up Wall Street (lets be clear Donald Trump is only a pawn for the Unseen Hand).

8). How will he use his executive order power to support and defend the causes of civil rights violations—that was seen in the hate crime that took place in Charleston, South Carolina and other places throughout America.

9). Note: Donald Trump handpicked these 100 Negro preachers, he did not pick Minister Louis Farrakhan, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Reverend Willie Wilson, Father Michael Louis Pfleger, etc. Trump knew and clearly understood that Minister Farrakhan did not want any fried chicken and watermelon. We want complete freedom, justice and equality for the entire black race. The Negroes that were picked they do not have any real influences outside of their congregations.

10), Now, here is the sad phenomenon: This Trump and Negro preachers controversy are perfect examples of the Willie Lynch syndrome, thus most Negro preachers are ill prepared to lead our people and definitely are not prepared to quasi venture into politics—these Negroes were truly out of their league. Trump would not have sent me the damn invitation, because I was not taught a slave religious doctrine, but I was taught by a master teacher and we know how to deal with leaders like Donald Trump—but you send 100 scared to death Negro preachers to represent black folk. I am appalled and insulted by their actions.

11). These Negroes could have quoted Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. words and walked the hell out of the room King Stated: “But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition”.

This Blog came about due to an Internet debate that I had with a fellow Prince Hall Brother named John Hairston on the topic of John G. Jones Lodges and 'regular' versus 'irregular' (clandestine) Masonry. Brother Hairston manages an Internet Blog site called Quill and the Sword (, he hails from the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of the Washington and Jurisdiction and is a member of J. C. Logan Lodge #53 Free and Accepted Masonry in Seattle, Washington. It appears that Brother Hairston is in various Masonic appendant bodies. I received a message/response on my Blog on April 23, 2014 from Brother Hairston relative to a said article that I had written titled, “John G. Jones: The Masonic Clandestine Argument Just Will Not Go Away”. Brother Hairston styles himself as a Prince Hall Masonic historian and appears to give lectures and talks on the origin and history of Prince Hall Masonry and these type brothers are often very dogmatic and zealous about their so-called scholarly intentions in defense of Prince Hall Masonry as being a standard bearer and an authority on what is determined to be “regular” Freemasonry, and its relations to Black Freemasonry in the United States in general.
Their research are often weighted with old primary source documentations and, which is in dire need of a fresh and revisionist interpretation; yes, objectivity and empirical outcomes are always the scholarly purpose and goals for those who consider themselves pure scientist or social scientist in which my comments are not meant to compromise the value, credibility and integrity of PHA scholars using all the available data in order to try and piece mill this scattered and fragmented history. They view this history as being sacred and is above reproach in which some of this information dates back prior to 1784. But I have always argued that many of them are fearful of critiquing and condemning the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) for imploring white supremacy ideology, a gross violation of Masonic principles and I will always consider their past historical conduct as being irreconcilable and for over 200 years allowing Prince Hall Affiliated Masonic status to linger in obscurity as an unrecognized body of Masons, which to this writer this remains an unpardonable sin (where is the atonement, responsibly and reconciliation?). 

They stood to be condemned and it was their racism being disguised under the cloak that the historical records of the 18th century were at best ambiguous and obfuscate and even contradictory. I have mentioned this in previous blogs that in 2010, the white Masons of North Carolina, after 138 years of institutionalized segregation and racism passed a formal resolution recognizing and declaring Prince Hall Grand Lodge and its jurisdictions of North Carolina as a regular body of Masons. But in order to get the PHA resolution for recognition passed amongst their white membership, they had to change the ballot system rules, because in all prior white North Carolina Ancient Free and Accepted Masonry balloting on this issue their membership voted down Prince Hall Masonry (reference:Dan Weatherington and Ric Carter; Recognizing Prince Hall: An Eleven Year Journey to Honesty).

They even had this big Masonic celebration on the capitol grounds in Raleigh, North Carolina where Negroes were invited to have some fried chicken and watermelon in fellowship with the sons of their former slave masters children and where they forgave their white Masonic brethren. They read resolutions and signed Masonic mandates of declaring and recognizing Prince Hall Masons in the State of North Carolina as a “regular” body of Masons. Thus, none of the resolutions declared that an injustice had been done and for this I could never celebrate with them affirming our right to be called “legitimate Masons”. But our Grand Master Milton ‘Toby’ Fitch thought this event to be a great day in the history of Prince Hall Masonry (finally white folk recognized us as full Masons and we were over jubilated to be in the house with white folk) but I was one PHA Mason who stood in opposition and protest (a fellow brother called me in order to invite me to the recognition celebration and I told him hell no because had nothing to celebrate). 

Many like Brother Hairston have deep seated interest in researching the origin of Prince Hall Lodge number 459, that transitioned into African Grand Lodge # 1, that laid the initial legal structure and framework for the establishment of Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Boston, Massachusetts, which rest on the legal Masonic jurisprudence that Prince Hall petitioned the United Grand Lodge of England and received a legal charter empowering him to confer Masonic degrees and legally practice the ancient and modern principles and forms of Freemasonry. It was a traveling Irish military lodge who had the authority to elevate and raised Prince Hall and fourteen other men of African descent from the Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft and Master Mason degrees (initiated, passed and raised) on foreign land and this to would stand to reason and surmise that Prince Hall received this privilege and honor from this defeated group of white Masons, because he perhaps had demonstrated loyalty and patriotism to the Crown during the American Revolutionary War—he may have even fought side by side with British soldiers against the American Colonies (there still is so much that we just do not know about Prince Hall’s past).

History further, tells us that, if he was a Diaspora African from the West Indies, he may have once lived under British colonialism in the Caribbean and perhaps in the deep recess of his mind, saw himself as a Black Briton. These British and Irish Freemasons who were of Caucasian descent understood that in the 1770s blacks were still being considered subhuman, because of their status under Chattel Slavery and were being dehumanized by this vicious system (racial equality was nonexistent in 18th century America). Many free blacks and slaves fought on the side of the British during the American Revolutionary War that culminated with the signing of Declaration of Independence in 1776. Nevertheless, white men of this nation won and declared themselves free, it would be almost another one hundred years with the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation and the Thirteen Amendment to the United States Constitution before black people were allowed to claim their freedom from the oppressive yoke of the United States of America.

I think most of my readers are somewhat familiar with the historical events of the Boston Tea Party in which British tyranny from its early inception 1606 would eventually become the order of day for these so-called 'New World' settlements (now make no mistake about the early European settlers, they were vagabonds, criminals and were the social dregs of British society who were expelled from Britain and were given a so-called new start in the “New World” by the King James and Queen Elizabeth of Britain)—these early American colonies survived, because they entered into agreements and pacts with the indigenous people who were in the Americas sixteen thousand years before the Caucasians ventured into this land. Great Britain had acquired a very extensive empire that stretched across almost every continent and it was even said that sun never set upon the British Empire based on vastness of land they had acquired around the world (raping, robbing and pillaging lands belonging to the darker people of the planet). But as the Thirteen Colonies grew and expanded, British rule was becoming increasingly repressive with the British imposing stringent taxing and tariffs (this was mercantilism at it is best) in which the colonies became angered and irritated that the British overseers and masters were imposing unbearable duties and taxes (they had mandates to increase the wealth and financial coffers of the king and queen of England by any means necessary)—this was the impetus and the spark that ignited the American Revolution.

Moreover, as I stated above this action was perceived by the colonies as being tyrannical and unjust and eventually led to a public rebellion in Boston (and in its New England colonies) where a group of dissident protesters organized (some historians have even suggested that these protesters were Freemasons), the protest led to organized dockworkers and ordinary citizens in Boston to begin throwing imported cargo back into the Boston harbor as a form of protest. This action in the modern context and time, would be considered a labor strike, but some of African slaves on plantations across this nation from 1555-1865 were some of the first ones who rebelled against harsh and forced working conditions of slavery—Chattel slavery was an evil institution, which led to insurrections and slave revolts—the tea protest and incident against unfair tariffs being imposed by the British Government sparked the American Revolution and many historians maintained that a black man named Crispus Attucks was first American to die in the Revolutionary War on March 5, 1770.

Prince Hall was a common name during this time in African American history in which some historians believe that his origin and roots were somewhere in the West Indians, but even this is unclear and historically unsubstantiated and other historians maintain that he was a free black who was abolitionist that worked and lived in around the Boston area and was an advocate of political and civic causes that impacted the lives of blacks. This much we do know, the Revolutionary War did not end slavery and after the war many blacks that fought on the side of the thirteen colonies were re-enslaved (they were promised their freedom after fighting on the side of the colonies and after the war ended were betrayed and placed back into slavery) and also there were some blacks who fought on the side of British Crown during the Revolutionary War and was giving the option to leave America and go to Great Britain to live as free black citizens, it has been recorded that a small number of blacks left America and did repatriate themselves into another foreign white country.

We also know that many of the original signers and framers of the United States Constitution were Freemasons including America’s first President George Washington (April 30, 1789 – March 4, 1797) much of this his can be found in Alexandria, Virginia and Mount Vernon, Virginia, as well as in the Library of Congress in Washington, DC and many of those white Elite and Aristocrats (property and landowners) of the 13 colonies who were invited to the constitution conventions in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (the so-called city of brotherly love) were Masons. But the Confederate Southerners and Northerners based on the idea of white supremacy have always viewed blacks as inferior. Blacks were written into the U.S. Constitution as 3/5 of a human being—chattel. President George Washington could have used his Masonic influence to insure that at least free black men would be giving the legal right to petition white American Freemasonry lodges and he did not, but history tells us he too was a slave owner —they (meaning these white Masonic Founding Fathers) were not interested in extending the right to blacks to petition their American white Masonic lodges as equal human beings and allowing blacks to join white American lodges was only an afterthought and highly un-permissible.

This adversarial and antagonistic Masonic history between Black Masons and White Masons would not be resolved for another 200 years. I cite this historical background as a basis and foundation to understanding the political, economic and social climate in early America that, perhaps affected Prince Hall and the coming about of black Freemasonry in the United States of America, in particular and so-called black America in general, which means the Masonic actions and Masonic decisions that Prince Hall made was not created in a vacuum. Prince Hall, if nothing else was a visionary and must be applauded for his courage to establish a separate and sovereign Masonic order, because he understood the American rules of racism and segregation. All present day black Masonic orders of the United States of America owe a debt of gratitude to Prince Hall, as a Black Masonic pioneer and all these black Masonic orders that came about later should include in their history the legacy of Prince Hall, thus, giving honor where honor is due.

I am of the opinion, that the Irish Military traveling lodge, also knew that it would be highly unlikely that Prince Hall and his fellow black Masonic brothers would not be received by white American Masons and I am also of the opinion, based on my studies that they assisted Prince Hall in formulating his petition to UGLE to receive a charter from the Grand Lodge of England in which history tells us that African Lodge number 1 did receive either a Masonic warrant and/or a full charter from the Grand Lodge of England and there exist an original copy of this document in the archives of the Prince Hall Grand Lodge in Boston, Massachusetts and this is proof positive and irrefutable evidence that Prince Hall had the legal Masonic right to function as an established recognized Masonic entity.

Yet, from 1784 up until Hall’s death in 1807 and many years later a debate ensued mainly by our white Masonic brothers who stated that there were evidence that Prince Hall and African Lodge # 1 was once giving a charter of sort, but at some point this black Masonic order was stricken from the Masonic roll and it became difficult to trace Prince Hall Masonic linage back to United Grand Lodge of England and therefore, the white Masonic orders in the United States of America passed mandates in almost every Masonic jurisdictions characterizing Prince Hall and his black Masonic order as being illegitimate and irregular. These irregular Masonic classifications created a hostile future and environment for black Prince Hall Masons in the United States and the non-recognition by white Masons led to Prince Hall lodges being labeled as clandestine and unworthy of the Masonic rights and privileges afforded to so-called ‘mainstream’ white Masonic lodges. I think as harsh as their actions were against Hall and his mission, we as revisionist historians and social scientist have found this decision by white Masons to be appalling; but Prince Hall used the opportunity to turn a negative into a positive, which to build and create one of the most powerful and respected Masonic institutions in the world—he was not stuck on seeking integration and begging white folk for acceptability (let me in boss I will be a good Masonic Negro)—Dr. Carter G. Woodson stated in his book the Mis-Education of Negro some us foolishly believe that the white man’s ice is colder than the black man’s ice.

Hall had giving us a legal Masonic charter and for 200 years, we thought that we needed white Masonic approval to appear as whole—we know and practiced everything they knew—the signs, symbols, words and tokens as the Masonic landmarks in fact there would not have been an ancient Speculative Freemasonic school of thought, if it were not for the knowledge that Greeks stole from ancient Kemet (Egypt) who were of Nubian descent and the Egyptian Mystery Schools according to Dr. George G.M. James in his monumental book titled, Stolen Legacy and they took our knowledge to Greece and Rome. I do not follow white Masonic philosophy or their ideology, why were Negroes in Prince Hall Masonry so concern about what white Masons thought of them? and many in my Jurisdiction they run from me (I intentionally keep the temperature hot and I refuse to make ignorance appear comfortable in my presences)—Freemasonry isn’t just about getting drunk off alcohol, thus, the obligations an the initial lodge training that I received in the Blue Lodge was serious (for me it wasn’t just about being raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason and letting this limited knowledge end my journey). But I heard ancient remnants of wisdom and great mysterious about this knowledge being echoed that went back to the ancient of days. Many of us after being raised to the third degree of Master Mason have thought of this ending our Masonic journey and our quest for knowledge (we shamelessly stopped  studying), but my raising enticed me to wanting to know more about this ancient craft.

I will never be recognized by those in my Masonic District (and be voted for the Master Mason of the year award based on my scholarship, although they are true beneficiaries of my work), because they are afraid of white folk and afraid of the knowledge that I represent and they feed me with a long handle spoon. But I am very comfortable with the knowledge that the Creator has blessed me with. Many of them read my material under the bed and hide; they whisper to me in private how much they appreciate my Masonic scholarship and my past Worshipful Master Brother Derek Burgman (I have always liked and respected this brother) who is now the Deputy Grand Master in the 24th Masonic District in North Carolina, perhaps even to this day, he does not know nor realize the impact that he had on my Masonic development (and my Masonic instructors the late Brother Alvis O. Grady and Brother Sammy McCullers for the patience they had with me for almost eight months of training). I felt they truly prepared me for the mission that I am on today; I don’t do this research for me. But I do it for my Prince Hall family as a representative of Doric Lodge # 28 in Durham, NC.

For example, I think it is time to write a new chapter in our Masonic history as Prince Hall Masons and not to be fearful of rethinking sensitive and controversial issues that are germane to black Freemasonry in America relative to the question of “regular” and “irregular”, in particular the one-hundred (100) year old dispute and conflict with John G. Jones Ancient Free and Accepted Masonry and devise a plan and strategy that would allow open communication and extend an olive branch of brotherly love in order make every attempt to resolve this outdated and irrelevant issue. It does not benefit Black Masons, in particular and Masons in general, to be in-fighting over who should be labeled 'clandestine' and/or a 'regular 'body of Masons. I will admit this, and have always admitted this, that there are some clandestine Masonic orders, which are undeserving to be legitimized by Prince Hall Masons, because they do not have a recognized charter and have strayed from practicing the landmarks of Masonry (and we should not legitimatize any clandestine Masonic group). I think if we were truly practicing the principles of Masonry and understood the foundation of Speculative Masonry, it would be easy to study the symbolism of the Five Points of Fellowship and use it as a model to place the human dimension back into the equation. I still maintain that John G. Jones did not commit an unpardonable sin. David of the Bible killed another man for his wife. But God did not forsake David and we must be willing to entertain forgiveness and free ourselves of the unwarranted social baggage and allow others to seek redemption in terms of liberating ourselves.

It's really not about my position on John G. Jones, but I am advocating ways to solidify and coalesce Black Masonic unity. I think most of the black Freemasons (or so-called African American Masons) who visited my Blog and have read my work should be astute enough to know that I am fully aware of some of the charges and accusations that were made against Brother John G. Jones and some of them no doubt were inexcusable. But this brother has been deceased for a very long time. Yet, no doubt John G. Jones his Ancient Free and Accepted Masonic Order is still functioning and nevertheless, Prince Hall critics would argue that it does not matter that these lodges have demonstrated a historical longevity (they still will be viewed by PHA as possessing a bogus origin because their Masonic charter is considered invalid) and in spite of their Masonic prolonged existence they will always be viewed as “irregular” and “clandestine” by Prince Hall Masons.  

I as a Prince Hall Mason have been a part of some spirited and passionate debates coming from other Prince Hall brothers pertaining to their position on clandestine Masonry. But I have not allowed those arguments to deter me from remaining open and having a willingness to be objective and it has caused me to part company with many of them on this particular issue. Some of my Prince Hall brother critics, have falsely accused me of betraying my obligation because we have strict regulations against Masonically dialoging with those Masons that are considered clandestine Masons and for me to raise the question of recognition and legitimacy of an “irregular” body of Masons is equalvent to Judas Iscariot betraying Jesus, the Christ. I am very familiar with the Phylaxis Society site Commission on Bogus Freemasonry in which Brother Ezekiel Bey (owner of BlueLite Internet site that caters exclusive to PHA Masons and his staff has complied a list of Bogus Grand Lodges and subordinate lodges). I respect my friend Brother Ralph McNeal, Brother Emanuel Stanley and Brother Ezekiel Bey (and perhaps all of them would disagree with me on this issue, but I consider myself a trailblazer and a fighter for change). And there are others inside of Prince Hall Masonry that have written critiques of John G. Jones and I applaud their essays and commentaries as well. But that does not curtail me from pursuing a course of black Masonic unity. I am just very passionate about creating a Black United Front and we should not allow our social or political status to hinder this clarion call for unity in spite of our differences.

This is the fundamental question relative to how are 'regular' and 'irregular' lodges decided upon? Who gave the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) their charter? And what standards are they using today to determine who should be considered ‘regular’ or ‘irregular’ Masons? This is a rhetorical question, because I already know the answer; the only standard that UGLE uses in determining a ‘competent jurisdiction’ is that those ‘competent jurisdiction’ must be able to trace their Masonic charters back to white folk in England or Scotland (Negroes always need an affirmation from master) and we allow them to function and act as supreme and sovereign authority and determinist over the legality of deciding upon which Masonic entities will be classified and viewed as  ‘regular’ or ‘irregular’ Masonic orders. Here is the contradiction, why weren’t the white Masons charged with un-Masonic conduct unless one considers racism and white supremacy as upstanding and acceptable principles in Masonry?

Now, for the record within the English language and lexicon, amnesty is a form of forgiveness contrary to the assessments that many have tried to use to refute my argument (I thought that I would bring this to my reading audience attention). We as Prince Hall Masons after 200 years of being denied full Masonic rights and privileges by them, but we have found in our hearts to forgive them (let me say White Folk) and thought that it was important to be accepted and recognized by our 400 year old oppressor. John G. Jones did not commit the type of atrocities that for which black Masons forgave white Masons, but when it comes to another Black man and Mason, we would like impose a double standard. This represents the epitome of Masonic hypocrisy.

My position is and will always be rooted in Black Masonic unity and this premise is not going to change with me there is nothing any scholar can present to me that will force me to change this. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught me that history is best qualified to reward all of our research and studies.

I think Black Masonic entities such as the one founded by John G. Jones should be allowed to enter into an acceptable and agreeable covenant with Prince Hall Masonry (for example, our U.S. Commander-in-Chief President Barack Obama and even prior Commander-in-Chiefs engaged their foreign enemies in talk diplomacy—USSR, Cuba, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, China, North Korea, etc., and diplomatic treaties and accords are/were established). This is done on the highest level of international relations—enemies coming to the table to talk about their political, economic and social differences, but are willing to find common ground to move forward in lieu of peace. Many of the hardcore PHA brothers position truly lacks logic and reasoning; we should always exemplify the best of intelligence and use our principles in Masonry to breakdown artificial barriers and not find it conveniently to erect more ideological or philosophical barriers.

I am sorry; I do not personally recognize UGLE as the supreme and sovereign authority over black Freemasonry. But I guess, if you are white and Caucasian you have the right to exercise self-determination and in 1717 declared themselves the authority to formulate and organize what eventually became the first Grand Lodge of England. England and most European nations cannot represent for me as being the moral example of what Freemasonry is supposed to stand for, because of their past anti-African involvement in the TransAtlantic Slave Trade. Thus, in my eyes along with their Babylon (Baby-London) United States of America partners they have violated the true tenets of Masonry, which is rooted in equality, justice, brotherly love and is opened and guaranteed to all Free-men who is a man and is of lawful age and decided upon himself to take this step of his own freewill and accord. His race should not be a factor in making a Masonic petition and in the 1700s our first Grand Master Prince Hall's race should not have disallowed him for being afforded the rights to preside and govern over African Lodge #1 because he had a so-called legitimate charter.

It took these racist over 200 years to disband and do away with practicing Masonic racism and it was inexcusable behavior and without Masonic merit that Prince Hall Masonry had to linger in obscurity and wore the unholy label of being ‘clandestine’ and ‘irregular’ by their white Masonic counterparts. This is what I have detested more than anything else and PHA might even choose to suspend me and/or expel me, but I will not back down from these above contentions. We have always thought that we needed white folk to authorize and legitimize us (even to this very day African and African Americans still think they need white approval—is there no help for the poor widow’s son?) I pity the so-called American 'Negro' and his present day slave mentality. True free people do not look for other civilized people to lead them. So get up Hiram Abiff from that blow to the head and go back to the trestle board and shine as the true fathers and mothers of civilization.

Freemasonry was founded on the universal principles of brotherhood regardless of race, color, creed and/or ones religious affiliations. But may be our conditioning process fostered us to either subconsciously and/or perhaps even intentionally overlooked the fact that Prince Hall, the founder of Black Freemasonry who established Lodge # 459 and African Lodge # 1 came to fruition and was established, because white Masons denied him and other Masons of African descent the right to petition and join white American Lodges within the United States of America. This forced the abolitionist and freedom fighter Hall to establish an all Black Masonic Order that functioned with sovereign and independent of their white Masonic counterparts (this represented black pride and stood as a symbol of Black Nationalism). It actually could be looked at as one of the earliest Black separatist movement in America prior to Paul Cuffee, Martin Delaney, Marcus Garvey, Bishop Henry McNeal Turner, Henry Highland Garnett, etc. White racism and white supremacy had little to no respect for the universal tenets and principles in which Freemasonry was supposed to rest upon—morality, friendship and brotherly love.

There were a number of legal court battles where white Masons sued and took Prince Hall Masons to court for daring to have the audacity to wear Masonic regalia and publically display the Masonic Square and Compass at venues in the public domain. Moreover, Prince Hall's white Masonic brethren said Black Masons had no right to legally display any Masonic symbols, because Prince Hall Masons were considered ‘clandestine’ and ‘irregular’ Masons and this so-called status compromised their right to exist under the banner of a Freemasonry organization and entity (just take a moment and read the history of the Shriners Jubilee Day). So it was White Nationalism that drove this divisiveness, which was rooted in Jim Crow that was initiated with the 1896 Supreme Court decision of Plessy vs. Ferguson whereas the high court ruled that it was legal to practice segregation and discrimination in America and it was not until 1954 with the Brown vs. Board of Education decision, which overturned the Plessy decision and declared separate, but equal as being unconstitutional. Yet, the passing of neither the 1964 Civil Rights Bill nor 1965 Voting Rights Bill brought an end to segregation and discrimination in the United States of America.

The white Masons ignored the legal strides of our jurisprudence system, as it was litigated in the U.S. Supreme Court and continued for decades to practice institutionalized racism against so-called African American Masons. But some of my critics have always accused me of injecting race into the Freemasonic equation and but many of them have turn a blind eye and conveniently overlooking the fact that for over 200 years Black Masons and White Masons could not have interchangeable lodge visitations, because white Grand Lodges in the United States did not officially recognize Prince Hall Masonry. Now, this is not to say, that there have not been over the years some integrated Masonic Lodges in the United States of America where black and white Masons co-existed; these instances prior to 20 years ago were more of the exception rather than the rule. For example, in my Masonic Jurisdiction of North Carolina as I have stated above, it was just 5 years ago that after 138 years of racist segregation that North Carolina white Masons finally passed a decree recognizing Prince Hall Masonry as a ‘regular’ body of Masons. So I will beg to differ with my critics, because race has always played a very high and prominent role in American Freemasonry. I believe that as I write this article notwithstanding there are 9 Southern states that still will not allow a black Mason to enter their Blue Lodges, Shrine Temples, consistory, etc. My position on Black Masonic unity has plenty of merit.

No one gave the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) a charter to function and operate as an independent and sovereign body of Masons. Thus, they like all other self-determining people in history declared themselves the right to decide on their own Masonic plight by moving forward and determining they had the ultimate authority to pursue setting up lodges in the ancient and modern forms of Freemasonry by implementing and establishing their own Masonic edit and, therefore laying the historical foundation for others to follow. Perhaps since no Supreme Masonic governance body and/or 'competent Masonic Jurisdiction' issued them a Masonic Warrant, Charter or Dispensation to function in a legal Masonic capacity, then any charters and warrants that followed (meaning those issued by the UGLE) would be considered irregular. Now, I think that you all on this forum are smart enough to read between the lines. But I also know that our acceptance of this illegal duplicity is rooted in a much deeper psychosis, which is mis-eduction and self-hatred—this always allows for us to give Europeans and their culture a free pass.

So No other Masonic entity had the right to do exactly what the United Grand Lodge of England did, if you understand what deductive reasoning is either you would objectively conclude that England had every right to establish itself as a 'competent Masonic' jurisdiction or what they set-up by mere reasoning is illegal and/or legal in which affords others this same Masonic right and privilege. But not only this, the UGLE would eventually impose their Masonic will on the world over. I write this article unapologetically, I do not practice nor follow the tenets of the UGLE or any other European Masonic body; once I accepted the knowledge of self, it was clear that what the so-called African American Masons were following was distorted and a perverted version of Masonry and I truly desired to look to the East and at least investigate the Ancient schools of thought that evolved in Ancient Kemet systems that predated Eurocentric learning and initiation systems long before the Caucasian exited the Hills and Caves sides of Europe.

If we continue to follow white Masonic schools of thought, it is my duty to make you aware that you are literally following a baby on the planet who has only been in existing a little over 6,000 years and to downplay the citadel of all knowledge, which is Kemet will render us a disgrace people to future so-called black Americans generations to come. This much has been thoroughly verified by Chelkh Anta Diop and Yosef Ben Jochannan and many of our revolutionary scholars who taught us that all knowledge evolved from the ‘African Origin of Civilization’. We are making some baby steps, because some of my Prince Hall brothers are at least starting to admit that no one gave the Europeans their charter in 1717 (this is huge and this admittance deflates the premise and foundation that only white grand Masonic bodies have the legal Masonic right to determine the question of ‘regular’ and ‘irregular’; I will never buy into this type of white paternalism). I think if we objectively look at how the United Grand Lodge of England was established and allow ourselves for a moment to just move away from our personal biases relative to how the UGLE was initially formulated, it would be easy to detect a Eurocentric form of absolutism and no one else has the right exercise a form of Masonic self-determination—this is ludicrous. I pity those who accept this as a golden rule.

This in my opinion, it is a much bigger argument than John G. Jones and his lodges and the question of ‘regular’ and ‘irregular’, it really sets a legal precedents for other non-Prince Hall Masons to use their own sovereign authority and power to establish and create their own Masonic reality. Let me set the record straight, because I know the mindset of zealots; it would be a total distortion and misnomer for anyone to suggest that Brother Knight-El, a Prince Hall Mason supports clandestine Masonry (no I am giving you all and others a lesson in critical thinking) and it is an outright lie for anyone to leave this conversation with that assertion. But I do advocate Black Masonic unity above all else and I also believe in talk diplomacy with other non-Prince Hall jurisdictions and perhaps we could find some common ground. I think it is very much immature to tell a Masonic organization such as Ancient Free and Accepted Masonry (John G. Jones this group is over 100 years old) the only option is to come before the PHA alter and be "Healed" for some they might find this to be a reasonable option and even I might in some instances agree with this stringent mandate, but what about those who are comfortable with being an upright man in the space which now they presently occupy.

The question of race in the United States relative to Freemasonry and the question of Brother John G. Jones and Ancient Free and Accepted Masonry are controversial topics with divergent opinions on both sides. I have said consistently and throughout other articles that I have posted on my Blog and have written numerous pieces advocating Black Masonic unity (this will continue to be my first priority and my personal crusade). So if anyone reads my works objectively, they will see this central theme throughout my Masonic writings—and also most of my writings have an African Centered basis that is steeped in Pan-African nationalism and cultural nationalism. Once again I make no apology for this position. What’s hypocritical is for Prince Hall Masons to embrace the racist and white confederate Masons in the United States of America, as their brothers (overlooking their past un-Masonic history and negative conduct towards Prince Hall as a Masonic institution and we have found convenient ways to ease the social and political tension with them, but are not willing to use this same diplomacy towards other non-Prince Hall African American Masonic groups).

But will not extend an olive branch to another black man who was raised and went through all the Masonic Houses and no doubt was once a Prince Hall Affiliated Mason in good standings. The history of Jones G. Jones is clear and we all know that he was expelled and/or suspended for various misconducts that went against our constitution and/or PHA Masonry code book (this much I agree with the argument and this history has been well documented). But if Negroes can forgive their former slave master’s children for committing crimes against humanity (slavery was a crime against humanity) in which there were no other crime in the Americas like the affect the Transatlantic Slave Trade, Middle Passage and Chattel Slavery had on African people, it lasted for 310 years. And we forgave them for these heinous or horrid crimes.

No, John G. Jones did not kill over 100 million Africans, separated black families, unmerciful raped our women—stripped us of our God; they introduced their version of Christianity and gave us a white Jesus to pray to knowing that by giving us this false image of the divine, it was designed for us to see him as our God and this systematic brainwashing has made us modern slaves and good Negroes for master even today on invisible plantation; they took our names, culture, tradition, folkways, mores and made us into Negroes. There was nothing Brother John G. Jones did in this dispute that amounts to the crimes that the white American task makers and colonial masters put on people of African decent. Yet, in our Willie Lynch mindset we have forgiving those who committed, perhaps one of the greatest atrocity to found any place in human history. Yes, amnesty and exoneration, and forgiveness should be top priority in assessing and evaluating John G. Jones linage Freemasonry. We cannot change the history that has already been written, but we the have opportunity to objectively come to the table and reach across the aisle in the spirit of unity and brotherly love and work to resolve this over 100 year dispute and move forward in the spirit of black Masonic unity.

I have no respect for the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) for whom we have sought their Masonic approval for over two centuries—working and fighting to obtained recognition from European Masonic entities is a disgrace and a shame in the eyes of our ancestors. We in the 21st century, a so-called free people still seeking approval from white people, it represents a despicable act. I am willing take on all the PHA Grand Masters on this issue and I will defeat all of them, because my position is rooted in the universal order of good and the universe is using me as its vessel. Also, send me all the PHA scholars my way as well and I will intellectual handcuff them as well.

Lastly, I have written tens of articles on Freemasonry and am more than capable of discussing every facet of this ancient philosophy. However, what distinguishes me from other Prince Hall writers and scholars, is that I have acquired the knowledge of self. And I do not look to European Freemasonry to guide me nor my thinking. The Black man is the original man (the world's best keep secret, is that he is God) and all knowledge sprung from the cradle of civilization, which is Africa. What I found to be greatest threat to Freemasonry is the level of ignorance and the lack of tolerance. I am student of Masonry and I feel compelled to bust up the Willie Lynch thinking and behavior that exist amongst so-called 'Negro' Masonry. I feel equally compelled to challenge the slave mentality that exist amongst some of us who proclaim to be Masons. Freemasonry is a system of morality veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols. Finally, my humanity will not allow me to deny and dismiss other Masonic entities based on them being three letters, four letters or five letters. Let common sense prevail and perhaps level heads will eventually come to the understanding that Black Masonic unity would only strengthen Masonry and not tear it apart.

Let me first sincerely thank all the brothers who had giving me input and whether I agreed or disagreed with their various opinions within these conversations, nevertheless they were insightful. It represented that at times that we were on opposite ends of the pole, but that is not necessarily a bad thing—it creates a sense of intellectual healthiness. I respected everyone’s right to maintain their opinions, but I pray that I did enough to challenge them to consider elevating their thinking and not be fearful to think outside the box and as we ended these conversations—the only victory would be, if both sides said enough and represented our positions to the best of our intellectual ability and allow others to decide where the truth lie.

There is no compulsion in Freemasonry when it comes to a Masonic Brother who is in good standings to be obligated to do anything. Thus, this includes a brother having the right to attend every communication meeting or none—this should not be held against a Masonic Brother who is in good standings and therefore all of the Masonic rights and privileges should be his, that is typical Freemasonry etiquette and we serve at the pleasure of our right to remain in good standings. Yeshuaa Ben Yosef (Jesus the son of Joseph) instructed us that the temple of God is within—no physical structure has the ability to determine intelligence or our level of humanity. Thus, often attending meetings, perhaps only makes us good ritual Masons, but my focus is delving into Speculative Masonry and this is what separates me from most Prince Hall Masons, in particular and Masons in general.

I am not to ego-driven and arrogant, that I cannot learn, but I am not impressed with ones appendant Masonic bodies affiliations or one’s title; I am equally not impressed with how many Masonic Houses that one belongs, but what impresses me the most, is the level of ones knowledge and most of all the level of their humanity (this is the only criteria that I have found relevant in my Masonic travels). Some will falsely accuse my analysis of being a threat to ‘regular’ Masonry, because of my opinions and views, but if you truly understood Speculative Masonry (philosophical Masonry) this science allows us to explore a diverse spectrum of ideas and schools of thought and we should not limited ourselves to this expansive ideological field of Masonry.

But what becomes dangerous to Freemasonry, is when we stop allowing others the right to disagree and not allowing them to intelligently cite their disagreement even if it’s opposite of the popular version of the truth and they should be able to do this without the threat of reprisals. There is no room for censorship or censuring just, because a Brother Mason takes the antithesis position in a debate in order to bring balance and clarity and even point out positions that might be flawed and/or in some cases have proven to be valid. I do not put out disclaimers, I vehemently standby every word that I have written in this Blog. I only have to answer to the Supreme Deity and not man, truly a man should be judged by his works, deeds and actions. The principles of Democracy looms high in Freemasonry and it is this principle that allows us the right to exercise a sense of Masonic freedoms—we learned very early that there were two subjects that was not allowed to be discussed in open lodge, which was religion and politics. I have a lot more to say.
