WHAT THEY NEVER TOLD YOU IN YOUR BLACK HISTORY CLASS
By Fahim A. Knight-El
America has become increasingly a nation of black and brown people in which demographers are predicting that in the next twenty-five years the United States will no longer be a majority white skinned nation and this notion is fearful to many in white America and Europeans around the globe. The sexuality of white women and their attraction to the black man have always created all types of social problems in a white supremacy society. The historian J.A. Rogers (1880-1966) has found that these interracial relationships run deep into the historical and modern civilizations anthropological dynamics, the DNA strained of African blood has touched the entire planet. No, other so-called African American historian had gone to these great lengths to document just how far reaching the Negroid linage and human sexuality have played in the history of European, Asians, and in the Americas and their ethnic and racial kinship to the Blackmoors who have racially impacted every nation's culture and history; in which Rogers tediously and meticulous go through ancestral records and historical genealogy by delving into human phenotypes to arrived at proven how wide spread and extensive were the African descendants. His voluminous books titled, Sex and Race that exposes some of racial kinship that has been systematically covered up and the history will literally shock you—I called his research as being the impetus of unlocking unknown global sexuality of black history historical facts, but this is a subject for another time.
I will intentionally digress a bit, but hopefully you all as my readers will eventually see the interconnectedness of my thought patterns; this article main theme was constructed to be a brief overview of some of our black historians whom I deemed important and those who made tremendous contributions to our struggle and I found none more deserving to be mentioned than Joel Augusta Rogers. This nation, the land (and all the U.S. territories) and the resources will always rightfully belong to the original Native Americans and their descendants along with our Moorish ancestors and those Africans who came to America before Columbus according to Dr. John Henrik Clarke (1915-1998) in his book titled, Christopher Columbus and The African Holocaust.
They blamed Muslims and radical extremist Islamic terrorist for this devastation, but unless you understood indigenous rites and folklore (even what I am saying and writing now still might be over some people’s heads) this type of phenomenon is not coincidental and is only part of the negative global energy that constantly insures universal balance but those in power have created an universal imbalance; they begin to invoke this energy over 6,000 years ago.
The indigenous people blood is still warmly flowing as invisible energy and is being kept alive by unknown universal forces and was activated when the two tallest buildings in
tumbling down. The Native Americans created an energy invoked by the
ancient Gods of fire, but beneath the twin towers on that day, it was an
earthquake (that was activated below the earth and where those buildings
set, the impact was prescribed to be no further than that indigenous crime
scene) that was controlled by spiritual forces above and beneath, the
world's capitol of Global monetary deceit. The World Trade Center and 9/11 was
not really a terrorist attack; there was an energy that was released through
human form in which the universe ordered the deadly destruction of 9/11; the
invisible immortal beings their souls are constantly being disturbed and their
spirits have never been put to rest and what you witnessed was the embodied
spirit of Ancient indigenous Native Americans revisiting with deadly force. New York
The so-called Arabs who have in modern racial indexing are classified as Semitic people, but the original Arabs from Oman and Yemen were of Negroid lineages in which sixteen of the so-called would be 9/11 attackers were from Saudi Arabia—these Negroid Astatics are the distant DNA ancestral of the same people who crossed the Bering Strait over 16,000 years ago. They have no relationship with the Indo-Europeans whom arrived much later, these people even predated the Grimaldi man in Europe and Asia (west Asia); Runoko Rashidi (a student of Ivan Van Sertima, the author of They Came Before Columbus), in his works African Presence in Early Asia, bears witness to this history.
The Natives who migrated to the North American continent were direct descendants of the people who presently occupy the land classified as Mongolia (the original Mongols and Ancient Black China: The Mongols, Zhou, Ainu, Jomon, and Huns were a people that had varied skin colors and hues that ranged from red like pigmentation to dark black skin with thick lips and broad noses with kinky hair; but a large majority of the ancient Mongolians had skin colors that were jet black or blue-black (white social scientists have attempted to classify the human race into three categories Negroid, Mongoloid, and Caucasoid these human genetic classifications are artificial and serve to disconnect the original man from his anthropological and archeological ancestry. If you desire further genetic and anthropology evidence, I refer you to visited the people in South Africa called the Khosian people who have an Asian look and you will immediately see our biological kinship with our distance Mongolian and Asian ancestral lineages. These systems of genetic human sociological groupings are meant and designed to fragment black indigenous people who once occupied the entire planet. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad asked the question, 'who is the original man?' His answer: "The Astatic black man, the maker, the owner, cream of the planet earth, father of civilization, God of the Universe".
Some of the Mongolians who lived in the upper most region of the rugged mountains had yellowish like skin (who resembled the modern Chinese and Japanese) more akin to Genghis Khan and would have looked more like the modern Asians, in particular the Chinese—these people were direct linkages to the Eskimos or the Alaskan Inupiat people who are the direct descendants of the Native Americans who populated North and South America. Joel Augusta Rogers who authored a number of books that traces the African genetic and biological presences on all the continents from Europe to Asia and down to the indigenous people of the

For example, their pseudo-racial indexing of Black Africans from
Somali, Eritre, Ethiopia, Zanzibar and Egypt and most of North
Africa and the so-called Middle East nations
are considered white and Caucasoid and certain Semitic Africans would be
classified as white as well; so when they find it intellectually convenient,
they turn black skinned Africans in Caucasians, which to justify racist
inspired anthropology. This is what Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop was challenging in
many of his works in dismantling anthropological racism in his books: Nations nègres et culture: De l'antiquité

and African Origin of Civilization Myth or Reality our scholars have
always been in a battle against intellectual white supremacy models ,
Minister Malcolm X (1925-1965) while minister and National Spokesman of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad (1897-1975) and Temple number 7 in Harlem, New York on 116th Street and Lennox Avenue; I was told that a lot of the black nationalists scholars and activist would gather at Lewis Michaux (1895-1976) African National Memorial Black Liberation Book Store where lively debates that involved the redefining of African History, which included discussions ranging from black Islam advocated by the black Muslims to black nationalism and Pan Africanism, as well as discussions on the applicability and culture relevance of Marxists socialist theories in the 1960s black liberation struggle. But books and information were important to all of those who had embraced the movement. These young black revolutionaries were studying CLR James book titled, The Black Jacobins: Toussaint L'Ouverture and the San Domingo Revolution and Frantz Fanon book titled, The Wretched of the Earth, others had ventured into trying to understand Marx's book titled, Das Kapital and the necessity of putting forth class based analysis in which they viewed was more of an antagonistic contradiction than race. Malcolm X had tremendous respect for Roger's commitment to uncovering unknown facts about the Negro and as minister, he would often be heard quoting from the works of J.A. Rogers. I remember being given a copy of his small, but most powerful book titled, 100 Amazing Facts About the Negro; this little book inspired me in desiring to wanting to know more about African Civilizations. I immediately came to understand how Chattel Slavery had such a devastating affect on destroying our connection to our history, culture and heritage. It has left us as a handicapped people because, it systematically robbed us of our land, names, God, religion, which made us blind, deaf and dumb to the knowledge of self—this was one of the greatest crimes ever committed against humanity and 400 years later we are still suffering from this crime.
J.A. Roger explored human genetics, anthropology, archeology, ancient architecture, sociology and located African DNA scattered and dispersed throughout world civilizations and Africans had made immense contributions throughout human history, but do to white supremacy, our contributions have been either deleted or minimized by the intellectual racism of western society. Rogers’ and his work does not get the credit for his contributions in documenting African contribution to world civilizations; the white controlled world of academia played up the black bourgeoisie historians such as the late Dr. John Hope Franklin (1915-2009) who authored one of the most widely read black history text books ever written on African American history titled, From Slavery to Freedom, the status quo deemed his research as being safe and they name buildings after these type Negro academicians; Duke University is one of the most prestigious white universities in the United States of America and they have named a building on campus dedicated to their professor emeritus Dr. Franklin called the John Franklin Center for International and Interdisciplinary Study. But laymen historians such as J.A. Rogers will never get a building named after him, they have chosen to write this black scholar out of history, because his scholarship was to controversial and provocative and he was before his time.
Garvey who was a Jamaican born immigrant from Saint Ann's Bey that was inspired by Booker T. Washington’s (1856-1915) life struggle to attain parity for blacks in the south and north in which he illustrated his life in his autobiography titled, Up From Slavery, Washington’s beliefs in technical and vocational training and the building of Tuskegee Institute was so inspiring to Garvey that he came to America to meet Washington, but upon his arrival Washington had died in 1915, a year before his arrival. I do not think Garvey shared in Washington’s conservative and non-confrontational political views on race and on accommodation and integration (Garvey was clear about race, he said race first), but Washington’s economic bootstrap teachings resonated with Garvey’s vision of economic self-sufficiency for Africans living in America and around the world—Garvey’s Black Star Line enterprises (which included the purchasing of ships in order to enter into international trade with Africa and the entire black world) were rooted deep in Booker T. Washington’s views on ‘casting your buckets down where you are’ staying connected to land and farming—providing your own economy and Washington did not allow his worldview to be dominated by racial and civil rights politics and of course he caught a lot of negative criticism from black people and black leaders of his day.
I think Dubois criticisms of Garvey was reactionary and he never attempted to work with Garvey—they both believed in Pan Africanism, but I think where they differed was that Garvey’s Pan-Africanism was undergirded with strict black nationalism principles and tentacles; in particular black land ownership and physically linking up with African nations such as Liberia and creating a transmigration movement back to Africa. Although, Dubois vacillated between various forms of communist theories and integrationist theories, but he was committed to Pan Africanism (but from an integrationist perspective and Garvey view of Pan Africanism was rooted in black nationalism separation) and yet Dubois believed in the importance of the unification of African people who were scattered throughout the Diaspora and he recognized the importance of all African people uniting politically, economically and socially. Marcus Garvey stated ‘Africa for the Africans at home and abroad’; Amy Jacques Garvey book on Garvey titled, Philosophy and Opinions of Marcus Garvey and the Universal Negro Improvement Association (founded in 1916) were totally committed to a form of black nationalism, which was steeped in African culture and reclaiming a lost history; Garvey looked around and noticed that every other people had a nation and he asked the question, where is the black man’s land and nation? He said he did not see one so he would build one.

J.A. Roger's published a small powerful book titled, 100 Amazing Facts About the Negro ,but Roger's works for many year were dismissed by mainstream black and white scholars as pseudo scholarship, because he was not a so-called trained historian of not having a university education. Yet, all his works in my opinion were well cited and he gave primary and secondary sources and had a sense of rigorous evidentiary documentation, but most academically trained historians are trained to cite extensive footnotes and endnotes and a bibliography this writing formality somehow lends credibility and acceptability from peer reviews in which this make them into being good scholars. I do not think so. So J.A. Rogers and his research never received the wide acceptability that it deserved because he didn't have a Ph.D, it wasn't until after his death in 1966, that a new generation of scholars started in the 1980s begin to renew interest in Roger's work. This led to Afrocentric writers and scholars such as Dr. Leonard Jefferies, Dr. Tony Martin, Dr. James Smalls, Amos Wilson, Dr. Molefi Asante, Asa Hillard, Mualana Karenga, Frances Cress Welsing, Dr. Naim Akbar, Cheikh Anta Diop, Ivan Van Sertima, etc., these black scholars were standing squarely on the should of J.A. Rogers.
forced white academia to reconsider African civilization in the discussion of a
people's contribution to humanity. Caucasian scholars like Martin Bernal who authored
the book Black Athena, many African centered scholars condemned
Bernal for not going further enough in his thesis relative to the Egyptian or
Kemetic influence on Ancient Greece civilizations, but I appreciated this white
scholars having the audacity to somewhat depart from the Eurocentric
worldview and offered a new insight into verifying what the Afrocentric
scholars had researched and put forth the argument that ancient Egypt
was Nubian and they had a huge influence on Greek civilization; no
one exposed this better than George G.M. James in monumental work first
published in 1954 titled, Stolen Legacy. I was almost kicked out
of my major because I challenged the professors about my right to cite Rogers ’ work as legitimate
history and I was ridiculed by them and one professor flunked me for
refusing to stop quoting and citing J.A. Rogers’ works. Rogers
They tried to demote his work to sensationalized journalism, but none of them had a written a body of work comparable to his scholarship. Rogers research led to finding African blood in every civilization, we were their as part of a pure African and/or as mixed mulatto and miscegenated bloodline in France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Russian, India, and the far east, etc., who were part of the ancestral lines of European royal families and some of this African blood according to Rogers in the world of intellectual white supremacy these African ethnic lines were often documented as white. But Rogers’ research uncovered that African blood ran deep in Europe even before Hannibal crossed the Alps and before the Moors arrived 711 A.D. (I am not referring to no Arabs and Berbers these are a Johnny-come-late people), I am referring to jet black Nubian Africans—just look at the Iberian Peninsula of Spain and Portugal, you still can see the African bloodline presences in the dark skinned and kinky hair of the Portuguese and the Spaniards. The African blood also runs deep on the
of Sicily and , the
kinky haired and dark skinned Greeks and Italians are all evidence of
miscegenation of African blood. These findings by Malta upset and upstaged how intellectual
white supremacy was structured because many of the scientific, military,
Catholic popes, European emperors, inventers, statesmen, etc., had Negroid blood
flowing throw their veins. Black people, we all owe this scholar a debt of
gratitude. I challenge you all during this month of Black History to go back
and purchase and read one of the greatest black scholars of all time J.A.
