God calls back the past.

Ecclesiastes 3:15 

For everything, God has providential


power and appointed times. God

determines the dates of our birth and

 death, as well as everything that

 happens in between.

 God's Divine Providence governs

our past, present, and future, and

nothing ever happens by chance.

Ecclesiastes 3 reminds us:

There is a time for everything,

 and a season for every activity

under the heavens:

Time and the events happening

within it are components of

a ceaseless flow. 

God allows things to happen for

a reason. Whatever is... has 

already been, and whatever will be... 

has been before; and God will call 

the past to account.

All of history and the way we view 

history is important. 

Some people believe that former days are 

gone forever. Ecclesiastes 3 demonstrates 

that this concept is not always true.

It is clear that God allows the past to return

to us for His purposes and our benefit. God 

makes good use of history repeating itself 

for mankind's benefit.

The past helps us remember 

who we are and Whose we are!

We can gain knowledge regarding

God's unmerited favor and grace 

by referencing man's past 


We have been shaped by history. When we take 

a deeper look back, we are humbled and thankful 

to see what God has delivered us through and 

what God has delivered us from.

As we travel through life, a historical 

perspective enables us to make sense of 

today's world and do everything we can

 to improve our tomorrows.

When we look back and see how far we've

come, we are compelled to consider both 

darkness and light. We can embrace the light 

without ignoring the darkness.The dark and 

the light exist in perfect sync. Sometimes 

they overlap, with one explaining the other. 

Both can inspire us to keep going, giving us 

the determination to overcome the current 

obstacle(s) or take a different path.

Past actions are the best predictors of future

 actions. Examining our past is one of the best 

ways to gain perspective. Some may believe 

that the past is best left behind, but we believe 

that looking back can be extremely beneficial

 when we consciously learn, grow, and gain 

insightful wisdom from our past experiences

 before moving forward.

Past actions are excellent predictors of how

 someone will behave in a situation and/or 

when confronted with a problem.

The past allows us to see the big picture. 

Our history inspires us to look forward. It has

 the potential to be an excellent fuel for 

preparing us for the future.

History is not just about mankin. History is

 about knowing God, reckoning with God, 

and keeping our thoughts fixed on God, the 

Source from which our highest good flows.

God is the ultimate possible good for us 

throughout history. A good that has no 

competitors or superiors.

God is our Teacher, our Guide, our 

explanation, our clarity, the meaning of 


The Scriptures are rich in history!

We must not lose sight of...

or disregard our history.

God bids an account of mankind's 

past, and God will bring every deed 

into judgment. 

(Ecclesiastes 12:14)

The theme of judgment and justice is 

prominent in Ecclesiastes. 

God's Will is Justice and 

justice will prevail.

History repeats itself, and those who fail to 

learn from history will pay a high price in 

the future.

The day of reckoning will not end in 

political arenas or boardrooms, but at God's 


God is in control of history... and evil,

 unrighteous circumstances will never be 

able to alter that.

All of mankind is made of flesh and is

 susceptible to immoral behavior. God's grace 

seeks to assist those of us who have jumbled 

our past.

By His grace and mercy... God seeks to 

recover and restore what may seem to us

 to be forever lost.

God has the power to bring forth our past 

experiences in order for us to sort through our

 previous egregiousness, remorselessness, abuses

 of power, gluttony, barbarousness, violence, 

anger, foulness, shadiness, wrong-doings, 

brutality, viciousness, heinousness,

destructiveness, cruelty, nefariousness, 

wickedness, corruption, confusion, agitations,

exploitations, selfishness, chaos, lawlessness, 

unrest, messiness, rebellion, devilishness,

deceitfulness, and troubles... with a greater 

degree of noble-mindedness, uprightness, 

and clarity.

God has a plan for our lives. He always 

does things with good with good intentions

and will fulfill His plans for us all.

We can trust that God will never abandon 

His work in our lives... He never has and 

never will do so.

With God's help, we can do the righteous 

thing... learn from our history to better 

ourselves, and pay it forward.

God does not bring the past up for the 

purposes of condemnation, but for


History is being written for the generations to 

come and our decisions have long term 

consequences. What is happening now... 

has already happened in the past, and what

 will happen in the future... during our 

lifetime will either shed light... or dim the 

light that will drive future generations.

Solomon is essentially saying, In Ecclesiastes 3, 

that history is divided into three parts: the past, 

present, and future. We are surrounded by 

history, the present moment, and future 

possibilities. They are all linked together... 

they all are interconnected.

While not all of our history is positive, 

it is true that it took place.

The truth will set us free 

and lead us forward.

If most of us in my generation think back

 to our school days, we probably remember 

history as unrelatable and difficult to 

connect with. 

How can we learn from history if we selectively

filter, omit, and/or erase it?

All-encompassing historical 

truths can teach us valuable lessons.

We all have the right to know the entire truth

 and nothing but the truth about our existence.

America's past is very chaotic 

and quite often morally repugnant. 

How can we hope to build a better future if we refuse 

to acknowledge injustices and be honest about our past?

America's past is very convoluted, disjointed, and 

frequently distasteful. It's time for all of us to stop 

burying our heads in the sand and start living in

 reality... in the present moment. Let us prepare 

ourselves to face, examine, and draw lessons 

from our nation's heinous past and present 

circumstances, which we are still struggling to

come to terms with.

To overcome our racial history, Americans must 

first learn our racial history… as it truly and 

painfully happened. 

To erase everything associated with the dishonorable 

parts of our history does not mean that those events 

did not occur. It actually causes more harm than good.

To undermine America's stated ideals by expunging or 

rewriting history in order to fill it with misleading 

opinions, alternative facts, or manipulated events 

(according to the preferences of a few) is a mistake

that can lead us all down a very dangerous path.


Attempting to erase or sanitize the facts about 

the negative and ugly parts of history does not

 make them disappear or mean they never 


If the good, bad, and ugly truths about history 

are not shared, no one can learn or grow from 

the mistakes or accomplishments of the past.

Fear of the truth being taught says a lot 

about the person who is afraid.

If history offends people, this may be the 

motivation we need to avoid repeating 

historical mistakes and tragedies.

If we cannot learn from the

 mistakes of the past and history

 is re-created by the 

vocal minority... 

who is served?

History is not something that 

a few can censor, destroy, 

or erase. History is history.

Our history was not always pretty or kind, 

but it happened, and we are all responsible

 for it! When we love our country or someone, 

we should be able to express our feelings 

honestly and point out where one or the other 

is failing.

This is not to say that one is unpatriotic or 

unloving. It indicates that people are awake, 

concerned, and have our country's best interests

 at heart. It entails holding our country 

accountable to the ideals it professes. It means

 that we strive to live up to the stated ideals of 

the United States Declaration of Independence:

 "that we each have unalienable 

rights given to all humans by

 our Creator, among which are 

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of


which governments are intended 

to protect!

The history of the United States is not pretty. 

We owe it, however, to the millions who died 

and those who have been oppressed throughout

 the history of the United States. Bringing up 

America's troubled past is about justice and 

reconciliation for all, not about guilt or shame. 

Speaking truth to power does not qualify as 

"anti-American." It does not imply that a 

person lacks devotion, loyalty, or respect for 

their country.

True patriotism acknowledges our historical

 truths... it rights wrongs and works to prevent 

them from happening again.

God sees that we frequently choose paths that 

lead us away from living out the promise of

 "One nation under God, 

indivisible, with liberty and

 justice for all."

God absolutely loves us. God never disappoints, 

never deceives, and never shames us. God desires

 the best for us... something far more.

Is God looking out for our best


Jeremiah 29:11 says, 


 "For I know the thoughts that 

I think toward you, says the LORD,

 thoughts of peace and not of evil, 

to give you a future and a hope." 

It is critical that we all think about what 

American patriotism represents to us. It 

should not simply accept our country in its 

entirety, with all of its man-made evil doings, 

bigotry, systemic flaws, impediments, racism, 

fractures, imperfections, shortcomings, pitfalls,

 injustices, and so on. It should imply being 

aware, identifying its flaws and shortcomings, 

while also recognizing our exceptional

 strengths, and working tirelessly to become a 

more perfect union.

It is critical to teach historical 

truths in a thoughtful, intelligent, 

and empathetic manner. This

 is a multi-cultural country, and

 the vast majority of us want to 

know the truth, but many have 

fallen victim to indoctrination.

It's amusing how other countries

 teach more about American 

history than the United States.🤔

It is absurd to label any educational institution

 as racist because it teaches historical truths

 about colonization, slavery, the Civil War, 

native American genocide, and the deep roots 

of racism throughout American history, among

 other things, while refusing to tell young people 

lies about US history and current events. 

That is deceitful and ungodly!

The truth may make some

students feel uneasy or sad, 

but it is the truth!

If we expect our youth to make meaningful 

contributions to society and not repeat the 

mistakes and cruelty of the past, we must teach

 them the truth.

Students have the right to understand and 

care about the experiences of those who are 

similar to and different from them.

They have earned the right to know the truth. 

It is their right to be educated and prepared

 to become active and engaged members of 

our society, with a full understanding of 

America's failures to live up to its ideals... 

and its successes!

Isn't it best to live the 

truth than a lie?


Some people avoid the truth like the plague.

To avoid and/or deny the existence and validity

 of uncomfortable truths, they devise irrational

 distractions, denials, malicious deflections, 

inhumanity, confusion, or outright lies.

Unfortunately, some people prefer not to

 face the unpleasant truth, even when it is 

available to them. Sadly, some people would 

rather not hear it, avoid it, prefer to be alone,

 or simply remain silent about it.

Some would rather be assured that what they

 have chosen to believe will work for them 

and keep them in their comfort zone 

(despite the fact that their choice is nothing 

more than comforting lies).

Some people are so entrenched in inequities 

and ideologies that any deviation from

 them... is considered dangerous.

Some people are determined to reshape and

 silence the truth about our country's history

 of racial injustice. Instead, they pretend that 

others are bad and evil in order to avoid feeling

 bad about the inhumane things they have 

purposefully overlooked, ignored, done, 

and/or accepted.

God never lies.

Titus 1:2

God is the Source of truth. 

“It is impossible for God to lie.” 

Numbers 23:19

Jesus called Himself the Way, the Truth, 

and the Life.

John 14:6

He expects those who follow Him 

to be people of truth. 

The truth is to be expressed in love,

 Ephesians 4:15

 offering hope to those seeking redemption 

from the lies of the world.

The most authoritative way to destroy people 

is to twist, rename, alter, confuse, nullify, 

falsify, and destroy records; then rewrite their

 past by dissolving, weakening, undermining, 

rubbing out, and annihilating one's awareness

 of their history.

Why are we telling children 

stories that we know to be 


It is a disservice to this country's future 

to ignore the inhumane struggles, sacrifices, 

injustices, rivers of blood, and senseless,

 torturous lynchings and murders that have 

occurred throughout its history.

How can our youth build a better future 

if they lack accurate information and 

documentation about our country's past

 and present?

Dumbing down history not only harms our 

children, but it also undermines and burdens 

our societies. A sanitized version of history

 does not equip young people to be responsible

 and ethical critical thinkers.

Failure to teach the truth can 

stifle our children's growth 

and well-being.

Why would any godly parent want their 

child to be misled by a whitewashed, 

dumbed-down version of American or

world history?

We all have the 

right to know

the truth!

True, knowledge of history is empowering, 

but ignorance of history is disproportionately


Historical truths inspire and motivate us to 

learn more and to value what we read.

Our history is 

our birthright! 

History is, in fact, one of the

 most important subjects we 

will ever study.

Consider this:

 How can we ever overcome all of the

bigoted "isms" if we can't acknowledge

the past and understand how it relates to

the present?

Remembering the past in our own lives 

helps to unite us to our authentic selves by

 reminding us of who we have been and

comparing that to who we believe we are

today. That gives us an idea of who we

want to be in the future.

We learn and understand more about what

and who created our current society when

we study history. In other words, history

teaches us how we got to where we are and

why we live the way we do.

History helps us understand successes and

failures, and if we are wise enough to glean

 lessons, we will be more inclined to reach

higher and dig deeper, positioning ourselves 

to build toward something greater.

History does not fade away; it can still have

 an impact on our lives today. It is critical to 

comprehend the past and how the complex 

choices and events of the past have influenced


our current social and political conditions.

We can learn from history how some societies,

 systems, ideologies, governments, and cultures

 thrived while others failed. Past events have

 created systems and conditions that have 

lasted for generations.

The rich history of the world examines the 

past and its legacies. It helps us in painting a

 comprehensive picture of where we are today.

When historical truths are taught, students 

can reconnect with their roots, which many 

African Americans have been denied.

It is critical to know and understand the 

connections between the past and the present

 at this time. It's fascinating to see how 

history links people, places, and situations

 over time.

History teaches us. Through observing and 

analyzing life's past events, we can discover 

warnings, practical advice, and direction, as 

well as gain greater clarity.

In order to understand who we are, we must 

gain a greater sense of self. History teaches us

 where and how we fit into the story of our 

country and the global community.

True history is a story of us.


True history is our story. It tells the story

 of who we are, where we came from, and,

 potentially, where we are going.

History tells us where our forefathers came 

from and who they were. Most importantly, 

it allows us to recognize (and appreciate) the

 legacies that we may have inherited from


The languages we speak were passed down

 from our forefathers. Our cultures, traditions, 

genetic make-up, and religions were all passed 

down from generation to generation.

History enables us to gain a better


understanding of the human condition. It tells 

us how our country, cities, and/or communities 

came to be.

History teaches. It helps us decide how to 

approach the future by allowing us to learn

 from our collective mistakes and triumphs. 

History teaches us how, when, and why things

 happened the way they did and why things 

unfold the way they do.

History provides us with the tools we need 

to be good citizens. Productive citizens are

 informed citizens, and no one can call 

themselves an informed citizen unless they 

have a working knowledge of history.

History teaches us how to be better 

members of our society. It also puts us in

 a better position to inform others.

Knowing our true history allows us to enter

 a whole new world of possibilities that will

 forever change who we are.

“Those that do not learn 

history are doomed to 

repeat it.” 

George Santayana first said those words, 

and they are still very relevant today because 

they are so true.

History allows us to learn from our mistakes

 in the past. It helps us in comprehending

 the various reasons why people behave the

 way they do. As a result, it helps us in 

becoming more compassionate as individuals

 and more impartial as decision-makers.

Some people try to falsely accuse, antagonize, 

and/or destroy the lives of others by telling lies 

because the truth can destroy their lives.

Fear of the truth speaks volumes 

about the person who opposes it.

Some people's relationship with reality is 

poisoned, tainted, and/or compromised. They

 are terrified of both life and light. Many 

people will not face the truth, come hell or

 high water. There is no place for truth in their

 lives, and they make no allowance for it.

Some choose to deny reality, cling to illusions, 

or downsize the truth and categorize it into minor

 points of view.

Many people are so terrified of 

losing power that they will

 never accept the truth, no 

matter how compelling the 


It's amazing how far people will go to oppose, 

disregard, and outright fight against addressing

 issues from the past that continue to plague 

our present and create a great divide and bleak


Many of the problems we face today... stem 

from problems in the past. We need to have

 honest dialogue if we are to have any real 

chance of making things right. 

We also know there is a very brutal, resistant

 body of people who benefit from the status quo

 and will sabotage any effort to make things right... 

unless enough people rise up, pull the plug, and

 drown out their voices and their devilish, smug, 

self-aggrandizing agendas.

Many people believe the idea that they are 

self-sufficient individuals rather than 

active participants in a generational 

web of lies.

"Pretending a dis-ease does not

 exist... will not cure it." 

Many spread harmful false narratives and 

continue to condemn and deny African Americans

 the possibility of rational thought, agency, 

and/or liberty. They would prefer that things 

remain as they are and that the current state 

of affairs remains untouched.

Some groups and/or individuals have taken 

extreme measures (usually for amusement or

 competitive advantage) to deliberately alienate, 

shut out, block, exclude, reject, and marginalize

 Africans and African Americans.

These racial slights are intended to make

 African Americans question their abilities and

 existence, to make them feel invisible, to make

 them feel systematically ignored and disregarded.

 These are psychological operations and mind 

games used by manipulators. These are 

attempts to undermine others' confidence 

and/or gain control over them.

Listen, toxic people become bent out of 

shape when they cannot control others 

because they are ignorantly bound to a false 

and extremely deceptive sense of identity.

Repeated racial slights can lead to 

psychological invisibility.

Some may resort to actively tearing down 

Africans and African Americans in order to

 control how others perceive them. They

 demonize, denigrate, and diminish 

African Americans by making vile, scornfully

 abusive remarks and accusations such as: 

"Blacks are the worst." 

That is vile and disgusting!

 Evil is the absence of good. 

Evil is what happens when

 man rejects good. 

These individuals are pure evil.

What we can know is... 

whatever God does is holy

and perfect and ultimately 

will glorify God.

Some will even go so far as to spread the myth 

of the predatory Black man in order to justify 

their brutality and violence against Black 

people, communities, and continents.

Consider this: once upon a time, regardless of 

the show or network, White males were always... 

cast in positions of comfort and power. Little 

White children were shown a good white life. 

It instilled a sense of entitlement to authority... 

an expectation that Black people would be 

looked down upon. When Blacks were cast for 

roles, they were frequently cast as criminals, 

thugs, and/or buffoons.

Individuals who are insecure and weak make 

ridiculous assumptions and accusations. They

 create distance, are afraid of what they don't 

understand about African Americans, become 

suspicious of them, and seek reasons to despise 


These are generational myths and accusations. 

These tricks are used to stymie communication

 and reconciliation while also ensuring injustice

 against Africans and African Americans.

Of Satan, Jesus says, "He has always been a 

murderer, and he cannot stand in the truth 

because there is no truth in him. When he lies,

 he speaks for himself, because he is a liar and

 the father of lies." " 

John 8:44

We must be aware of Satan's strategies in 

order to avoid falling prey to his deceptions 

or accepting the shame he wants others to bear.

Some people are irrational, and their egos are 

fragile. They find it difficult to accept that they

 have been exposed and called out for their 

wrongdoing. Instead of accepting 

responsibility and accepting blame, they act 

as if they have the right to do or have what 

they want.

They have a difficult time accepting that 

they are not perfect or worthy, so they become 

irritated and lash out, looking for reasons to 

shift blame and hurl insults. They blame others 

for what they have done. These are the entitled 

people who believe the world revolves around 

them and that they can do no wrong.

When people allow themselves to become 

entangled in generational lies, self-centeredness,

 and ego-gratifying illusions, and then feel

 their self-esteem has been threatened, they

 do a grave disservice to both others and 

themselves. This has the potential to limit their

 intelligence and inner freedom.

All generational "isms," coddling, deception,

 worry, headaches, anxiety, and setbacks 

harm and/or injure the offender, and no one is 

healed as a result.

Everyone is made of flesh and prone to sinful 

behavior. The question we must ask ourselves is, 

"Would God be pleased with 

our forefathers' behavior and 


We must not repeat the mistakes of our deceased,

 rabble-rousing, ungovernable, and devious 

forefathers. Some of their choices and 

decisions were heinously cruel, deplorable, 

completely inhumane, and ungodly.

We must reach higher and dig deeper with God's

 help in order to better ourselves and live 

righteously before God, our children, grandchildren, 

and future generations.

We should do better 

when we know better.💡

 God provides a ‘written memorial’ of the

 deceased in order to teach those living... 

regarding the wayward and lawless 

behavior of some of “Our fathers”.

“With many of "Our fathers"...

God was not well pleased”

 (1 Corinthians 10: 1, 5).

It should be beneath our dignity

 as humans to imitate the evil,

immature, egregious behavior 

of some of our forefathers.

Love gives, receives and serves.

When we fail to acknowledge as part of reality 

the worth of all mankind, it becomes difficult 

to hear nature's cry; everything is connected.

African Americans have been engaged in an

 ongoing, long-overdue systemic struggle

 against oppression and racism. Some, however,

 who have been intergenerationally indoctrinated

 in a racist White supremacist culture... 

would rather embrace a plausible lie... than face

 truths that make them feel uncomfortable, 

afraid, or put them in a position that might 

disrupt their lust for power, privilege, bigotry,

 and unbridled greed.

Many people have remained obstinate,

 unreasonable attached, narrow-minded, and 

firmly fixed on their skewed sense of reality, 

believing that Africans and African Americans 

are inferior, subhuman, and have no place in 


Everything about racism is a lie. 

It's a game passed down from generation to 

generation. It obscures many of the significant

 contributions made by Africans and 

African Americans to the world throughout history.

"Man’s inhumanity to man” 

is baseless and vile.

Absurd and twisted realities 

and thinking can become 

dominant threads in the fabric 

of creation, perpetuating racism...

which is suffocating to everyone.

Racism and prejudice can distort and disrupt

 people's thinking. People with fragile egos 

frequently make assumptions that essentially

 deny the freedom and dignity of members of

 the hated or despised race. Some people have

 a sense of deception and alternate reality.

They twist and arrange truth to keep their 

fragile egos... inflated.

Parents' harmful dysfunctions can be passed 

down from generation to generation, leaving 

some children weak, toxic, ignorant, and fragile.

Unfortunately, lying has become a common 

mode of communication for many people. 

When we whitewash or minimize aspects of 

history in order to protect our children, we

 are not providing them with all of the

 information they require to truly understand

 the oppressive systems that affect us all.

When we pass down generational supremacy 

and lies as truth to our children, we do them a 

disservice. The solution to lies is not more lies.

 Children, especially innocent children, are

 easily influenced and groomed to become the 

fruit of the white supremacy tree.

Some people have filled the voids and pain 

of separation from God and generational 

lies by committing a whole slew of sins served

 up on a platter of grossly offensive generational

 lies and unfair behavior.

Closer examination reveals that family traits, 

such as stereotyping, "isms," negativity, race 

myths, and other destructive behavior, are 

frequently passed down from parents to 

children. They are inextricably linked to one's 

family history... it is a genetic inheritance. 

For centuries, this cycle has been repeated.

Listen, just because an ancestor passed down 

their set of convictions does not automatically 

qualify their way... as the righteous way.

There could be a dysfunctional generational

 influence in our lives that we need to break!

When these sins become deeply ingrained in us, 

they can be difficult to overcome on our own.

It is critical in our lives to identify areas of 

generational influence. Customary, dysfunctional

 patterns can or will emerge when generational 

influences are at work in our lives.

A generational influence can cause us to repeat 

a sin that we saw modeled in our family. Other 

times, our sin will be something we do in reaction 

to sin in our family.

Those who came before us created historical 

distortions and/or ideologies, and they passed

these distortions and/or ideological influences

 on to subsequent generations.

Disgracefully, some have clung to delusory 

beliefs and claims that devalued the humanity 

of others and were entirely based on melanin... 

as if these belittling, unjust, repressive assertions 

were gospel truth.

Abraham was an obedient 

"Friend of God" 

(James 2:23).

 He abandoned the pagan sinful culture of his

 family line and chose to live a new and 

positively unwavering way of life. 

At God's request Abraham left that 

region and even his own family to 

follow the path God set for him. In 

doing so he became known as 

"The father of the faithful."

Because of Abraham's willingness to 

refrain from the sinful habits and practices of 

generations, God made specific promises 

to him about the future of his descendants. 

God told him, that He would make his descendants 

as the dust of the earth; greatly multiplying his 

offspring so that they would be too numerous to


(Genesis 13:16).

God further told Abraham, 

"I will bless those who bless you, and I will

 curse him who curses you; and in you all the

 families of the earth shall be blessed" 

(Genesis 12:3).

Almost 2,000 years later Jesus Christ, 

a direct descendant of Abraham, 

would be born to make good for all sin 

and offer eternal life to all mankind. 

The entire world came to be blessed, 

through Abraham, because of his willingness 

to break with the patterns of past generations 

and embark on a new way of life revealed

 by God.

John 8:32 - And ye shall know the truth, and the 

truth shall make you free. 

That's a wonderful promise that can be taken


The definition of truth in "Harper's Bible Dictionary" 

includes the statement... 

"God is truth." 

We must be sincere and persistent in our pursuit

 of truth. God will reveal it to us, and the truth will

help us see life more clearly.

We need to broaden the 

African and African American 


There is no doubt that the slave trade had a

 significant impact in many parts of Africa;

however, viewing African history as the history 

of slavery and the slave trade is an inaccurate


The West focuses solely on


slavery, but Africa's history 

is far more than a footnote 

to European  imperialism.

Slavery is just one chapter in a long history of 

inventions, events, complex systems of 

participatory government, and powerful states 

that spanned vast territories with extensive 

regional and international connections. Art, 

learning, and technology flourished, and Africans 

excelled in medicine, mathematics, and astronomy. 

They made fine luxury items in bronze, ivory, 

gold, and terracotta for both local use and trade, 

in addition to domestic goods.

Societies had become highly developed 

in terms of their own histories. 

West Africa was home to 

numerous ancient cultures and

 over 800 languages. Before 

European slave traders arrived, 

West Africa had a rich and 

diverse history and culture.

Africans had a variety of 

political structures, including

 kingdoms and city-states.

We learned a lot about slavery from the 

International Museum of Slavery." "For centuries,

 Africans traded with Europeans via merchants 

in North Africa. In the 15th century, the

 Portuguese were the first traders to sail down 

the West African coast. The Dutch, British,

 French, and Scandinavians soon followed. 

They were interested in valuable items such as

 gold, ivory, spices, and especially pepper.

From their first encounter, European traders 

kidnapped and transported Africans to be sold

 in Europe.

Transatlantic slaving did not become the 

dominant trade until the 17th century, when 

plantation owners wanted more slaves to meet 

Europe's increasing demand for sugar." "

The expansion of the transatlantic slave trade

 disrupted West and Central African societies 

and extracted an incalculable human toll 

over the centuries.

Europeans first made contact with African 

societies centuries ago, and they had long

 maintained trading posts along the continent's 

coasts. As European colonies in the Americas 

grew, their governments looked to Africa for 

cheap labor to power their expanding farms,

mines, and plantations.

The poverty of some... is the 

result of the greed of others. 

Slavery, greed, a resilient system of oppression, 

corruption, inequality, white supremacy, malice,

 ignorance, a sense of entitlement, ego, 

self-importance, injustice, and lies have all

contributed significantly to the impoverished 

and broken state of Black societies... and 

have been the source of White 

prosperity and undue advantages.

We must acknowledge the contributions of 

Africans and African Americans to the 

development and shaping of America. 

Enslaved Africans became the labor force 

of choice in the Western Hemisphere, 

becoming the overwhelming majority of 

the colonial populations of the Americas

 after proving themselves competent workers 

in Europe and on nascent sugar plantations

 on the Madeira and Canary Islands off the 

coast of Africa.

The slave system was the primary source

 of financial independence for the new nation.

The White House Was, in Fact, Built by 

Enslaved Labor Along with the Capitol and

 other iconic buildings in Washington, D.C.

According to Scripture, 

Satan is a subtle, 


manipulative, and malicious 


Satan and his demons are fully out, and they have increased 

their activities. They are determined to turn as many humans, 

as possible, away from doing the will of God.

Jesus describes Satan as a manslayer.

Satan is just as dangerous as any leader of a well organized crime.

He sees to it that his will is accomplished through his cohort, 

the demons, especially when he knows his time is over. 

Why do people deflect 

and project?

Deflecting and projecting are defense 

mechanisms which involves condemning 

others for their own emotions, traits, 

reactions and behaviors.

Deflecting and projecting usually occurs 

when a person is afraid and does not have 

the ability to move past their inner conflicts 

and acknowledge truth. They project things 

they don't like about themselves onto others. 

In other words, they scrape the mud off of 

themselves and smear it onto others.

In their heads, projecting protects them from 

having to acknowledge parts of themselves 

they don't like. They transfer, or project, their 

unwanted emotions or traits and... attribute 

them to someone else. 

Some people tend to feel more comfortable 

seeing negative qualities in others rather 

than in themselves. If a person disagrees 

or confronts them, they will, like lightning, 

shift inta deflection mode. 

They will do anything to run counter, transfer,

and confuse the communication, in an effort to 

skirt around the topic at hand and take the 

attention off of their fears, etc. 

Deflecting and projecting does what all 

defense mechanisms are meant to do: 

It keeps discomfort about oneself at bay.

Biases impairs rational judgment and becomes

major obstacle in decision-makingBias is the

 tendency to search for, interpret, deviate, and recall 

information in a way that confirms or supports 

one's prior beliefs or values. Biases can lead to 

poor decisions and accumulated corruptions.

Some people believe that their beliefs, biased 

accounts in historical descriptions, interpretations, 

explanations, and their colonial way of thinking is 

right and the only way to go; although, they have 

been profoundly and appallingly proven wrong.

Despite there being overwhelmingly credible 

evidence to debunk stereotypes and tackle 

systemic injustices... the biases of the status quo

shuts out anything, with the exception of what 

they want to acknowledge. Some would rather

keep blinders on, choosing to see only the events, 

people, and situations any other way than the

 way they are. 

Pyramids of Giza - Ancient Egypt

In ancient times they were included among the Seven Wonders of the World.

All three pyramids were plundered both internally and externally in ancient and medieval times. Thus, the grave goods originally deposited in the burial chambers are missing, and the pyramids no longer reach their original heights because they have been almost entirely stripped of their outer casings of smooth white limestone; the Great Pyramid, for example, is now only 451.4 feet (138 metres) high. That of Khafre retains the outer limestone casing only at its topmost portion. Constructed near each pyramid was a mortuary temple, which was linked via a sloping causeway to a valley temple on the edge of the Nile floodplain. Also nearby were subsidiary pyramids used for the burials of other members of the royal family.

According to Wikipedia,  Egypt is the most populated country in the Arab world 

and the third most populous on the African continent, 

with about 95 million inhabitants as of 2017. 

The history of Egypt has been long and wealthy, 

due to the flow of the Nile River with its fertile 

banks and delta, as well as the accomplishments

of Egypt 's native inhabitants and outside influence. 

Much of Egypt's ancient history was a mystery

 until Egyptian hieroglyphs were deciphered with 

the discovery and help of the Rosetta Stone.

  • 1st Intermediate Period: 2181-2055 BC

  • Middle Kingdom: 2055-1650 BC

As per Encyclopedia Britannica, Egypt, country located in the northeastern corner of Africa. Egypt’s heartland, the Nile River valley and delta, was the home of one of the principal civilizations of the ancient Middle East and, like Mesopotamia farther east, was the site of one of the world’s earliest urban and literate societies. Pharaonic Egypt thrived for some 3,000 years through a series of native dynasties that were interspersed with brief periods of foreign rule. After Alexander the Great conquered the region in 323 BCE, urban Egypt became an integral part of the Hellenistic world. Under the Greek Ptolemaic dynasty, an advanced literate society thrived in the city of Alexandria, but what is now Egypt was conquered by the Romans in 30 BCE. It remained part of the Roman Republic and Empire and then part of Rome’s successor state, the Byzantine Empire, until its conquest by Arab Muslim armies in 639–642 CE.

Nile River, Arabic Baḥr Al-Nīl or Nahr Al-Nīl, the longest river in the world, called the father of African rivers. It rises south of the Equator and flows northward through northeastern Africa to drain into the Mediterranean Sea. It has a length of about 4,132 miles (6,650 kilometres) and drains an area estimated at 1,293,000 square miles (3,349,000 square kilometres). Its basin includes parts of TanzaniaBurundiRwanda, the Democratic Republic of the CongoKenyaUgandaSouth SudanEthiopiaSudan, and the cultivated part of Egypt. Its most distant source is the Kagera River in Burundi.

During a time period in history known as the 

4th dynasty of the Pharaohs, in Egypt, nearly

 5000 years ago, an incredible feat characterized 

by ingenious design, resourceful technique, and

 the labor of tens of thousands of men was 

developed... accomplished... established. 

These men contributed with their bare hands

 in creating massive tombs which were as tall

 as a 40 story building. They did this for their 

Pharaohs. This was the most ambitious and 

spectacular undertaking ever attempted by 


Today’s civilizations owe an immense debt 

to the powerful empires and mighty cities of

 antiquity. Their inventions, techniques and

 concepts enabled the advancement of 

humankind and laid the foundation for life

in the modern world.

Egypt's impact on later cultures was immense. 

Egypt provided the building blocks for Greek

 and Roman culture, and, through them, 

influenced all of the Western tradition. Ancient

Egyptian civilization lasted for more than 3000

 years and showed an incredible amount of 


The influence of the Nile river on Egyptian 

culture and development cannot be overstated,

without its presence, the civilization would 

have been entirely different, and most likely

 entirely elsewhere. The Nile provided not only 

a constant source of life-giving water, but 

created the fertile lands that fed the growth of 

this unique (and uniquely resilient) culture.

(Text adapted from Khan Academy)

There are some who use psychological and 

emotional manipulations to impose their will.

They purposely create an imbalance in terms 

of power, rights, control, and responsibility. 

Some have purposely hidden the truth from 

the masses and will not accept it for themselves. 

They don't question themselves; yet, will blame

 others for their misdeeds, especially when the

 person they have oppressed and created all 

sorts of roadblocks for, despite the setbacks, were

 blessed to tap into their God-given

abilities and talents, come from

behind, push upward, despite

feeling overwhelmed,  

accomplishing what God had already 

ordained, written, and brought them

 into this world to do

They rise!

Whenever we open the door to any twisting or

misrepresentation of truth, it is fairly easy to 

continue down the road of deliberate deception. 

Some people have lied so much... they lose sight 

of the truth and start believing their own lies.

Their deliberate lies and deceptions have 

caused untold damage, and the human cost

 has been devastating.

Systemic white oppression is one of the most 

insidious, resilient, and adaptive social forces

 in all of human history. It is a diabolical force 

that reinvents itself, generation after generation. 

Each subsequent recurrence emerges more subtle, 

vast, and undetectable. It is barely perceptible.

Oppressors, although they are bankrupt of valid

arguments, fear and hate free speech and free 

African Americans. They have always tried to 

silence any people or speech that threatened

 their power. 

They become uncomfortable exchanging error 

for truth. For many, deceit holds the key to 

money, prominence, vindictiveness, and/or power

In history, this has often resulted in unspeakable

 cruelty, suffering, disingenuousness, forgeries, 

shams, and in some cases... millions of deaths.

Satan is well aware of the fact that time is 

running out on him. He is not only deadly,

 but often well camouflaged. 

Let us dare not be ignorant of Satan's 

schemes and strategies. His plan of attack 

is aimed at the mind. He wants to keep our

 lifespans short and our minds weak, 

re-educated, and controlled while pretending

 to do the opposite. 

God's Word has a lot to say about 

the mind, which serves to further underline

its crucial role. Our approach must be one

 of soberness, for the issues at hand are life

 and death, heaven and hell.

Brainwashing - also known as mind control, 

menticide (which is the systematic effort to 

undermine, destroy and manipulate a person's

conscious mind, mental independence, values 

and beliefs, as by the use of prolonged 

interrogation, drugs, tortureetc., can induce 

radically different ideas). Coercive persuasion, 

thought control, thought reform, and 

re-education is the concept that the human

 mind can be altered or controlled by certain

 psychological techniques. 

According to Merriam-Webster dictionary,

 brainwashing is a forcible indoctrination to 

induce someone to give up basic political, 

social, or religious beliefs and attitudes and 

to accept contrasting regimented ideas. It is

 persuasion by propaganda or salesmanship.

For those who choose to maintain the status quo, 

change is perceived by them as a loss or detriment.

 It can be a scary thing, and it makes them resistant 

and uncomfortable, which is why many tend to 

prefer things simply stay the way they are.

Many are generationally taught to not acknowledge, 

respect or appreciate the valuable contributions

made by African Americans. Many are taught

 not to respect or appreciate the diversity in the

African American experience. Ultimately, this 

can result in insensitivity, distrust, and a disdain

 for treating other people, particularly

African Americans and other people of

 color, as they should be treated.

It would be a very sad commentary

 if we found that discrimination and 

racial inequality has actually been 

built into our country’s laws and


To honour, accept, and appreciate the

 uniqueness of everyone... realizing and 

respecting the fact that we are all created 

equal in the eyes of our Creator... this

would be a process worth developing

If we can look beneath the superficial 

appearances that seem to be the source

 of our prejudices, then we could see the 

inner strengths and values of all humans.

It is our loss, if we don't.

As a first step in exterminating and/or 

eliminating a people... the evil one erases 

their memory, wipes out their books, their

 culture, their history, and then have revisionists

 gloss over past events, grossly impacting 

the sacrificial person's life... creating a series 

of events that were not so. It is a case of he 

who has the pen and the press creates... 


Let us acknowledge that there are two histories: 

the actual series of events that once occurred; 

and the ideal series that many, right or wrong,

maintain, support, and uphold in memory. 

How can silencing truth correct the mistakes

 of the past? Repeating mistakes of the past is 

worse than regretting mistakes. It is a conscious

 and harmful choice that is made. 

Much of the worry, regret, heartache, suffering,

and unhappiness in people’s lives is caused by

 an unwillingness to learn from mistakes. Some 

people are notorious for doing the same things

 over and over again... expecting different results. 

If we do not learn from the lessons that

 life is trying to teach us, then, they will be

taught to us again and again until we do. 

It is wise to see the blessing or lesson in 

what could snowball into major stressing. 

To put it simply, life lessons can teach us not

 to make the same mistake twice.

When people begin to forget what is... and what

 was... it can sabotage the root and the branch.

In order for us all to understand our history... 

we must tell the truth, even when 

it is uncomfortable. We must 

unlock the vault of our authentic 

history, and tell the whole 

truth and nothing but the truth...

so help us God.

Truth is likened to a two edged

 sword... it will either cut one 

down or cut one free. 

History is not hatred. 

History helps us all develop a better 

understanding of the world. Through history, 

we can learn how past societies, ideologies, 

systems, and cultures were constructed. 

History can equip us with the necessary tools to 

analyze and explain problems of the past and 

patterns that may have infested our present. 

It is important to know about and learn from 

the mistakes... the good, bad, and ugly of our

nation's past. Otherwise, those who are in a 

position of power can broadcast and program 

the masses with one-sided, distorted narratives 

about our nation's past. Some have even 

stooped to extinguish any source of 

enlightenment by ridicule or death.

There has been gross inaccuracies and 

mischaracterizations regarding Africans,

slavery and people of color, in general. These

 mischaracterizations of historical events 

continue to haunt our present and threaten 

our future.

If our great nation understood the notable moments, 

contributionsstruggles, bloodshed, and sacrifices 

of life made for our great nation by Africans and

 African Americans... it could very well weaken, 

threaten and/or sabotage some people’s mindset

 and/or suggestions of black inferiority. 

It would behoove us all to cultivate an honest 

representation of the past and learn to treat all

 people with respect and understanding.

People tend to learn more about a nation by 

looking at and carefully examining what a 

nation chooses to forget. 

Loving our country means 

teaching historical truths about 

its past. The more enlightened 

we are about our past, 

the better prepared we are 

for the future. 

History is not taught to make one love or hate

 our great nation... it is taught to help us all  

become more enlightened. It helps us all better 

understand our country, our history, our origin 

and culture.

History is the creation and recording of our heritage.

It is our prayer we will be fortunate enough, before we 

die, to gather up as much as we can of our civilized 

heritage and transmit it to our children and future 


History, as we have been taught, is a one-sided 

narrative at odds with actual events. It has 

been grossly distorted and misrepresented.

Unfortunately, history is

overflowing with

 inaccuracies and omissions.

History is a lamentable error! 

Throughout history, forgeries, perjuries,

 and intentional deceptiveness abound and 

a myriad of errors have grossly littered the 

ancient past. Much of what has been 

passed on as "History" are nothing short 

of egregious ancient myths. 

Many historical lies are told by commission, 

which is making things up that are not true. 

Some of it is made by omission, which is 

leaving out information or details, not telling 

the full story. And some of it by assent, which 

is... remaining silent when not in agreement. 

Much of history that was taught in school was 

riddled with blatant generational lies. It has 

been exaggerated and filled with obvious false

 statements written and published by others who 

knew they were telling lies and twisting the truth.

Some of the most powerful forces that shaped

history were dressed-up lies people made up

about events that never happened with the

 intention to deceive and lead others to accept

 those lies as truth.

Many are so stuck on historical lies... they

 cannot bring themselves to acknowledge that

 which is inaccurate or true. That, in and of 

itself, is alarming and cultish. These distorted 

interpretations, perceptions and ideological 

influences presents insidious historical lies and 

sensational claims about America's past. 

These disingenuous accounts have threatened

 democracy and undermined reality.

Furthermore, these lies, omissions, and 

misrepresentations only compound the 

problems we face, today. These lies and

distortions about our racist legacy have laid the

 deceptive groundwork for imminent catastrophes, 

i.e., racial indifferences, injustices, systemic 

oppression, redlining neighborhoods, inequalities, 

police profiling, police brutality, mass incarceration

 and many other expressions of hostility and/or 

discriminatory practices.

These historical distortions and/or ideologies 

were created by those who came before us. 

They passed these distortions and/or ideological 

influences on to generations who followed them. 

This is a phenomenon called the illusion 

of truth effect. It basically proves that any

statement some people read, see, or speak 

regularly... is seen as more valid than one 

they are exposed to only occasionally. For 

some, it makes no difference whether the 

information is true or false... the only thing 

that matters is how often they are exposed

 to it. 

Disgracefully, some have latched on to these 

delusional beliefs and claims which devalue

the humanness in others, based totally on race, 

as if these belittling, unjust, repressive 

assertions were the gospel truth.  

Research shows that an unsound message 

rehashed continually becomes more convincing 

than a strong and truthful statement, only heard 

once. Whatever one can plant, in the mind,

and nourish, with repetition, can become

 one's reality.

The law of repetition can be a strong 

reinforcement and change one's perception 

of reality. Repetition and/or programming

has the power to rewire the brain, change

one's mind, and consequently govern one's 

thoughts, belief system, and behavior. 

A lie repeated often enough becomes the truth, 

for some. The same goes for visuals, which are 

just thoughts and ideas concentrated into an 


Repetition can rewire the brain and increase

one's mental validation of anything they are

exposed to, repeatedly, which is why it works

 so well in newspapers, magazines, radio,

 television advertisements, and political 


According to Wikipedia, history is a social 

resource that contributes to shaping national 

identity, culture, and public memory. Through the 

study of history, people are able to make inroads

 with a particular cultural identity. 

By negatively revising history, one can craft a 

specific ideological identity contrary to reality.

There are ongoing cases of deceptions, revisions

 and consciously falsified reinterpretations of 

history shamelessly taken out of context by some 

who would blindly accept a lie to avoid 

uncomfortable truths. 

Many historians are credited as people who, 

without compromise, pursue truth, by way of 

facts. On the other hand, revisionist historians 

capitalize on the historian's professional 

credibility, and present their pseudo history 

as true scholarship. By adding a measure of 

credibility to the work of revised history, the 

ideas of the revisionist historians are more

 readily accepted in the public mind and tends

 to fit their political, social, and ideological 


These devious lies have revealed an arrogance

 and entitlement which has affected every 

generation of humanity, and sadly, this

 disinformation is still being condoned, 

promoted and actively embraced by those 

who would rather live generational lies... 

than face the truth. This is a disturbingly 

relevant narrative of oppressors versus the 

oppressed and resistance to systemic

 exploitation of African Americans.

Some have chosen to continue demonizing, 

denigrating and dismissing African Americans,

 brutally mistreating, denying, and ridiculing

 the truth and even killing African Americans. 

There are facts about the oppressed that are

 still being overlooked by historians. We can 

no longer, in good and righteous conscience

 be buried by satanically inspired philosophies, 

twisted human reasoning, or warped, evil and 

distorted belief systems.

Power has influenced the production of the 

narratives we tell of the past. Power also 

protects and reinforces, for the sake of argument, 

the epistemic validity of Western historiography, 

and Western ways of knowing and using the past.

Unequal power structures have worked to create

 and reinforce historical narratives that contain 

a boat-load of silences. These silences are found 

not only in academic historical accounts, but in

 sources, archives, and in how societies recall

 and cast their minds back to the past, depart from

 the truth, invent historically inaccurate narratives,

 and establish historical significance.

Like the old proverb says, 

“Truth is the only daughter 

of time.”  

The truth will come out 

sooner or later.  

What doesn't come out in the 

wash, more likely than not, will 

come out in the rinse.

In an incredible journey of over 400 years, of 

World and American History... are missing pages.

Pages of untold stories have mysteriously

 vanished. They have been left out and/or 

have been silenced from history books. The 

enduring power of counter-storytelling has

 purposely created a wall of silence regarding

 the untold stories of Africans and 

African Americans.

Many cannot imagine what the history was

 like before the slave trade. To grow up 

believing African Americans' history started 

in slavery is a lie.

We must unlock the vaults of African 

and African American truths. There is a 

wealth of in-depth, sobering, unshakeable, 

unyielding, steadfast and resolute African 

and African American History. African

 American History is deeply rooted within the 

American story. Regrettably, this history has 

been, purposely, enshrouded in silence and 

hidden from public knowledge. 







Slavery and American racism 

were born in genocide.

White supremacy has been

 ingrained in our nation's 


America was founded upon ideals and,

generational lies, genocide, tyranny, cruelty,

 brutality, slavery, theft, terror, and immorality.

America has a deplorable legacy of bigotry /and

 violent crimes against humanity committed

 either outside the law or in the name of  "Law 

and order"... a record that stretches back centuries. 

The system of white supremacy was presented

to the Americas by European colonists and 

took effect in early U.S. society through the

genocide, enslavement, and internal colonization

 of indigenous populations, and the enslavement 

of Africans and their descendants. 

Historically, white supremacy has been 

understood as the belief that white people are 

superior to people of color. As such, white 

supremacy was the ideological whip of the 

European colonial projects and U.S. imperial 

projects: it was used to rationalize the groundless, 

unreasonably excessive and unrighteous rule 

of people and lands, theft of land and resources, 

enslavement, and genocide.

The phenomenon of colonization is a well-known

demeanor of gross, deplorable bigotry, tormenting

violence, systemic oppression, and insidious

 injustices against African Americans. 

Unfortunately, what happened to George Floyd, 

in 2020, stands within America's prejudiced 

tradition of oppression, implicit bias, heartless, 

warped, inhumane, unmerciful, and narrow-

mindedness... the enduring evils that 

perpetuates white supremacy. 

History helps us to better understand many

 of our present-day issues and why things are the

 way they are. Our country has a long and rich

undocumented history.

By negatively revising history, one can craft a 

specific ideological identity contrary to reality.

The revised history documented was made 

widely available by those who robbed, erased,

 ignored, oppressed, subjugated, enslaved, 

plundered, captured, colonized, lied, and 

murdered. As a result, their version of 

history has been infected with blatant lies, 

gross distortions, and countless omissions. 
History and context matters.

History helps us to dig deeper to see the 

importance of slavery to the American narrative.

 It helps us better understand the cause and effects 

of slavery and see how and why people of color

 are still being racially marginalized.

When students are miseducated and can only 

glean from unfavorable stories and stereotypes 

reported on the news, read in newspapers, 

heard on radio, seen in movies and on 

television... they end up having little to no

respect or appreciation for African Americans 

because of negative slants, etc. 

In all too many instances, African Americans 

are often overlooked or never described in

 a positive light to any of us. The children

 and our world need to be taught the truth

 about African Americans both historically

 and currently. 

There are some who have tried endlessly to

perpetuate generational lies regarding their 

delusion of white supremacy. Some have lied on, 

murdered and tried to keep African Americans

ideologically and economically downtrodden. 

They have been and are notorious for omitting 

and/or downplaying those critical narratives

which have shaped the character of our nation.

True history helps us to understand ourselves and

 the world around us. It gives us a clearer picture 

of how the various aspects of society works and 

how people have behaved, generation after 

generation, in an effort to impose their 

delusional idea that a superior race exists. 

How can anyone justify

 unequal treatment based 

on melanin? 

How can we promote liberty, freedom and 

democracy, on one hand, and a system of 

subjugation and exploitation of people who 

are of a different hue... on the other?

The colonizers proclaimed that the African people 

had no history. Everything has a history, including 

our nation’s deplorable record of violence against 

African Americans, committed either outside the 

law or in the name of law enforcement itself. 

We are born into a rich heritage of change-makers.

We were born to experience, harness, and 

contribute to this unparalleled journey of

rich diversity of people and cultures. 

Our collective past, from the first civilizations, 

the middle ages and into the modern era are 

overflowing with astounding discoveries of 

strong, faithful and fearless people who, may 

not be mentioned in our classroom books, but

 they have contributed greatly and provided 

strong and sound shoulders for us all to 

stand on.

When people get desperate or feel threatened 

they create illusions of victory... where no 

evidence exists. They turn blind eyes and bend

 reality, creating historical fiction, to selfishly suit 

their desires and personal preferences. They will 

go to extreme measures to cover up their misdeeds.

Mansa Mussa, King of Mali from 1306 AD to 1332 AD, 

was a great scholar, an economist with great business 

skills, and an art lover. He earned worldwide respect 

as he led a holy pilgrimage of about 72,000 from 

Timbuktu to the Islamic mecca. He was able to make 

Mali the wealthiest kingdom.

The Kingdom of Mali is in West Africa along 

the Niger River. It is highly renowned for its

trading centers, especially the city of Timbuktu. 

Timbuktu was renowned all over the world as 

a center of trade and exchange. 

The Kingdom of Mali is also attributed with 

the construction of vast libraries and one of the most 

prestigious Islamic universities, globally. 

It became a center of knowledge. 

It was at its height during the reign of Mansa Musa.

Many people with low self-esteem look for ways 

to feel better about themselves. Some will attempt

 to put others down. They are notorious for 

belittling, condescending and even using 

patronizing speech.

Ignorant, uncultivated, and crude people seem

 to find pleasure and mock the shortcomings and

 faults of others... or their ideas. They vilify and/or 

discredit what they do not understand. They make

accusations often with offensive and dishonest

Satan is very comfortable taking up residence in 

people who are liars and intentionally mislead 

others to accept false, fraudulent, and invalid 

statements as true and valid.

This kind of speech, by Ian Smith, is a 

passive-aggressive approach to giving someone

 a verbal put-down while maintaining a facade

of reasonableness or friendliness.

We can tell a lot about a person by what they 

choose to see in others. People who lie and 

belittle others do it for the purpose of raising 

themselves up. 

Some people belittle others as a way of 

expressing their own bitterness, anger and 

ignorance when they purposely make 

unproven assertions in order to cast a bad 

light on what is thought to be a 

shortcoming of another.

It's been said,

"To belittle... is to


be little".

Misrepresenting the truth creates confusion 

and doubt. These dangerous distortions can

corrupt and cause eventual destruction. 

Historical narratives and the assumption

that the subjective interpretation of history 

is automatically rendered into a historical

 truth on account of its historical impact is

 clearly wrong. 

Delusional opinions and false assumptions

 based on incorrect interpretations of 

another's reality and cultural norms is evil. 

Some deliberately devilish people have 

allowed Satan to profoundly influence their 

human sphere. They are greedy, troubled 

people who are filled with an insatiable 

hunger for power.

Some stick to and live what they know to

be lies. It is an evil which causes widespread

harm, i.e., vicious cycles of animosity, ugliness,

warped justice and racism. Generational lies 

have caused and continues to cause unspeakable

suffering, untold destruction, and millions of 


People can sometimes have opinions about facts. 

Some people are not content unless they are in 

an accusing, invalidating, degrading, dismissive, 

unhinged attack mode. Some would rather be 

bamboozled by lies and trust bogus assertions

than accept or tell uncomfortable truths. 

No one wants to be deliberately lied to, told 

half-truths or given exaggerated accounts of 

people or experiences. The simplest lie, which

 some may take lightly... has the power to hurt,

 discourage and hinder. 

Words are persuasive messengers that could

 have one unleashing anger and hatred on 

people who are undeserving of it. Hurtful, 

one-sided misinformation can devastate 

one's life.

One lie causes others to question 

everything one has ever said.

 It is important that we tell the truth. Truth 

telling is essential for authentic communication 

to occur, and it makes genuine interactions 

between people possible. 

So what happens when our history is fabricated, 

erased... rubbed out and forgotten?

There are sizable holes in the narrative of history, 

some believe if they tell a lie loud enough and 

often enough, people will accept it as truth. 

Some have purposely endeavored to destroy 

historic relics preserved from humankind's 

earliest era just to support their creatively 

constructed narratives.

Erasing history is a dangerous path because

it means that the truth becomes something 

yielding, malleable. 

History has been constructed 

instead of recorded.

 Revisionist history can easily turn into a 

disaster of historic proportions! Picking and

 choosing which details to omit and/or focus 

on may make the events seem like they were 

heroic... or when the blinders are removed...

 the history shouts, this is not so... it has 

not been!

Erasing the facts doesn’t mean that events 

will go away, and they never happened. 

Neither does it mean that one has 

succeeded in narrowing another's range 

of thought. It just means no one, all 

inclusive, can learn very much if 

they depend only on historical fiction... 

which is a false path of understanding.

The truth is the mortal enemy 

of the lie. Let us be willing 

to search for the truth.

The impact of African Americans is 

undeniable and deeply deposited in the 

social fabric of America. 

We cannot talk about or tell American history 

without talking about African and African

American history. Like it or not... these 

narratives are basically connected, coupled, 

affixed, entwined, and related.

We all need the truth!
Shaka Zulu is one of the most popular and powerful

African kings. He is globally remembered as a great

military innovator and one of the most formidable

 leaders in African history. 

One human being of the ancient world who left a profound impact 

on history was the world's first documented multi-genius Imhotep

which means “he who comes in peace.” Imhotep held many titles

 such as sage, scribe, poet, chief lector priest, architect, 

astronomer, magician, chief physician to the king, and 

second in command of Kemet (Egypt).

Imhotep received accolades for his literary mastery that 

earned him recognition in modern times as; "the first man of 

science in recorded history," "the real Father of Medicine 

and healing," and "the world's first doctor". Sir William Osier

 also commented that, "The first figure of a Physician to stand

 out clearly from the mists of antiquity".

Imhotep lived in Kemet – Egypt at the court of King Zoser

 (Djoser) of the 3rd Dynasty around 2,980 B.C. and designed 

Kemet’s first pyramid. He established such a reputation as a 

physician and healer, that during the later stages his adoration

 grew into deification where he was worshipped as a god for the 

next 3,000 years in Egypt, Greece and Rome.

Imhotep, as a physician,

 was acknowledged as the

 author of the Edwin Smith

 Papyrus which describes

 more than 90 anatomical

 terms and 48 injuries. In

 Memphis, Imhotep also

 founded a school of

 medicine known as

Asklepion that remained

 famous for two thousand

 years. This took place well

 over "2,000 years before

 the Western Father of

 Medicine Hippocrates was

 even born"

A medical document that he authored is still studied to this

 day by medical students around the globe. In the area of

 medicine therefore, Hippocrates, who was born around

 460 B.C., is regarded as the “father of medicine”,

 whereas Imhotep, who was born around 2,700

 B.C., was worshipped as the “God of medicine.”

Imhotep, who also 

performed surgery and 

dentistry, diagnosed and 

treated over 200 diseases 

with some related to the

abdomen, bladder, rectum,

eyes, skin, hair, nails and 


He extracted medicine from

 plants and cured such

diseases as spinal

tuberculosis, gallstones,

appendicitis, gout, mastoid

diseases, rheumatoid and


There were thousands of homes around the 

huge square, all in the shape of beehives.

Cattle breeding, milking cows and hunting big

game were all considered as being honorable

 activities, and for this reason they were usually 

carried out by men.

More importantly, in terms of livelihood, 

social status and also as the subject of 

economic transactions... was cattle. 

For their protection against wild beasts 

kraals were constructed. These circular corrals 

were located in the center of each homestead. 

At night the herd was enclosed there. Cattle 

were extremely highly valued, because the 

size of the herd represented a benchmark of 

social success for every man.

History has been significantly shaped by the 

influence of Africans and African Americans. 

African Americans have made significant

 contributions to every field of the human

endeavor, including, but not limited to: a 

body of knowledge in science, the practical 

application of electrical knowledge and

sciences of technology. They have extensively 

researched brain function to develop and design 

the mechanical system.

Africans and African Americans were able to 

make complex mathematics appear simple. 

Historically, Africans and African Americans 

have left an indelible mark in theology, 

astronomy, architecture, medicine, education, 

agriculture, arts, literature, athletics, politics, 

and especially to the American economy. 

In every facet of the 

American experience lies

 the story of Africans and

African Americans.

John 10:10 reminds us, "The thief comes 

only to steal, kill, and destroy." 

"Woe to those who enact evil statutes

And to those who constantly record unjust 

decisions, So as to deprive the needy of 

justice And rob the poor of God’s people 

of their rights" there are consequences.

God’s Word is clear, it says we’ll be known

 by our fruits. Not by how much money we have. 

Not by how many followers we have. Not by 

how many books we have written or the great

 things we have done. We will be known by 

what fruit exists in our lives.

 At its height, 

slavery was a $3 billion-

plus industry and a 

major engine of the U.S.


The belt-tightening of slavery 

wasn’t relegated to the South: 

it crossed state lines. Even those 

states with low slaveholding

 populations were turning a 

profit from the tedious,

 exhausting, back-breaking 

blood, sweat, tears and 

subjugation of the enslaved.

 From tobacco cultivation, in

Virginia, to shipbuilding in 

Rhode Island, industries 

throughout the states both 

supported, and were

 supported by, slavery. 

By 1850, 80% of American 

exports were the product of 

slave labor. 

The estimated value of enslaved people

 increased 500% between 1790 and 1860,

 from $200 million to around $3.059 billion.

 Slavery’s profitability far 

outweighed the moral outrage 

it gave rise to. 

The South, in particular, was so dependent

on slavery that after the passage of the 

13th amendment freed the enslaved, many

 Southern states leveraged the vague nature 

of the amendment text, "Neither slavery nor 

involuntary servitude, except as a punishment 

for crime whereof the party shall have been

 duly convicted, shall exist within the 

United States, or any place subject to their 

jurisdiction," to criminalize African Americans 

and reinstitute them as a free labor source. 

Freedom... liberty?

The Constitution actually

 protected slavery.

African and African American history holds 

a long, rich and deep spiritual heritage. 

Jesus is central to

that heritage. 

Various theories about the race of Jesus 

have been proposed and debated.

True, we should be more concerned 

about our salvation and not the 

color of one's skin, but the question 

becomes... if color doesn't matter, to those 

waking up from the white Jesus myth, then 

why is it assumed, through countless 

illustrations, that Jesus was of European 


After research and revelations, it is extremely 

unlikely that Jesus looked white with blonde hair 

and blue eyes. He probably looked like the 

average man in that time period and place.

Why would Mary and Joseph take a blonde

 haired, blue eyed baby... to hide in a Black and 

Brown Egypt and Africa?

Everyone was Black, Brown or tan 

(As the Romans were) during that time. 

Odds are that Mary, the mother of Jesus, 

didn’t have blue eyes or even a recessive gene

 that would allow a child of hers to have blue eyes.

There were NO blonde Jews or Hebrews on the 

continent. None!

Egyptian culture before the British occupation.

Jesus was before the Diaspora, and they 

were Semitic, with brown features, 

dark brown almost black eyes, and black hair.

For eons, it depended on who painted the picture. 

All of the artists who drew or painted pictures 

of Jesus, for the most part, were European. 

So naturally they drew Him to look European. 

While Christ transcends skin color and

 racial divisions, this heinous default 

assumption of Jesus being light-haired,

 blue-eyed, and very white has caused many 

to become disciples of a white Jesus... 

which is inaccurate.

In the Book of Revelation, Jesus is described 

as having hair like “white wool,” eyes like 

“flames of fire,” and feet “like burnished 

bronze, refined as in a furnace.”

Burnished bronze is closer to a dark brown.

Jesus was about 30 years old when He began 

His ministry (Luke 3:23), but the Bible tells us

 virtually nothing about what He looked like...

except that He didn’t stand out in any 

particular way. 

When Jesus was arrested in the garden of 

Gethsemane before the Crucifixion 

(Matthew 26:47-56) Judas Iscariot had to point 

Jesus out to his soldiers among the disciples...

presumably because Jesus blended in with

 the rest of the population, He didn't stand out,

or at least with His followers, enough so that

 Judas had to identify Him for the guards who 

were coming to arrest Him after the Last Supper.

They all appeared similar to one another. 

Painted in the sixth century A.D., is the

 earliest known image of Christ found in

Israel, and the image portrays Him with 

shorter, curly hair, a depiction that was 

common to the eastern region of the 

Byzantine empire... especially in Egypt 

and the Syria-Palestine region, but it 

disappeared from later Byzantine art.

 We should not need Jesus to be either 

black or white, but we should need the 

Word of God to be represented accurately.

In church, depictions of Jesus have been 

used for centuries. A white image graced 

church walls for decades and travelled around 

the world with missionaries, military personnel

 and in American publications. This Protestant 

image was, in some ways, a modern expression

 of portrait trends in the work of some master 

artists in the European Renaissance.

For years, Sallman’s Jesus “represented the

 image of God, a white notion of the sacred. 

These depictions also influenced the idea

 that Jesus was a man with blonde hair,

 blue eyes, and white complexion.

Leonardo da Vinci was a leading artist and

 intellectual of the Italian Renaissance 

who was known for his enduring works 

“The Last Supper” and the “Mona Lisa.” 

Rembrandt van Rijn, another painter, 

rendered a drawing of 

The Last Supper after Leonardo da Vinci.

Obviously, some had a crude and somewhat 

infantile fascination with skin color. 

Why was it necessary to depict Jesus as white? 

Could it be that some may have used the Bible

 to push their heretical, racist, divisive agendas?

As Jesus' following spread out of the

Middle East ... sometimes via devoted 

missionary work and sometimes by more 

aggressive methods... people across western

 Europe started casting Jesus in their image.

Scholars have a better idea of what people,

in general, looked like in the Middle 

East around the first century... and they 

were not light-skinned. The Bible reflects 

countless unsung heroes who have been

 portrayed quite differently. 

For centuries, the most common image of 

Jesus Christ, at least in Western cultures, has 

been that of a bearded, fair-skinned man with

 long, wavy, light brown or blonde hair and 

(often) blue eyes. 

The famed painting, which has been 

reproduced at least a billion times, came

 to define what many generations thought

 was a accurate portrayal of Jesus Christ.

The evidence we do have indicates Jesus 

probably looked very different from how 

He has long been portrayed.

Yet, a white Jesus remains the standard in 

most modern depictions. 


Cesare Borgia was the illegitimate son of Cardinal 

Rodrigo Borgia, who later became Pope Alexander VI.

He was the son of his father’s most famous mistress,

 Vannozza Catanei. Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia, 

was vice chancellor of the church and had three 

earlier children by other mistresses. 

Cesare befriended Leonardo da Vinci during 

his life. Leonardo used Borgia’s likeness as a

 base for his depiction of a caucasian Jesus. 

Apparently, it was common place for artists to 

do such things to please popes and monarchs. 

Jesus' teachings elevated humanity 

to a higher level of spirituality and enlightenment. 

This authoritative man with dark curly hair 

like wool (or with a Rastafarian hairstyle) and

 burnished brown skin died for our sin and is 

God’s Son. 

Jesus was manifested in the flesh, justified 

in the Spirit, sent by God, the Father, to dwell 

with man. He came and died and resurrected 

for all ethnicities.

Jesus faced all the

same kinds of 

trials and tests we

are subjected to...

and more.

"With humility comes 


Without humility, there is strife

and division. 

We cannot stop people from doing evil, 

but they cannot force us to participate 

with them. It takes no power, might, or

 wisdom to retaliate against evildoers.

"The way of fools seems right to them"

Death is the shepherd of all mankind. 

And “in the morning” those who are evil 

will be the slaves of those who are good. 

For the power of their wealth is gone when 

they die; they cannot take it with them.

Psalm 49:14-16

"When pride comes, then comes disgrace."

The angry, lawless, hate-filled lynch mob 

mocked, and treated Jesus shamelessly. They 

spat in Jesus' face, brutally struck Him with 

their clenched fists on His temples and

 tormented Him. 

Others slapped Him with the open palm

 of their hands. They blindfolded Him and 

cursed Him, beat Him, and whipped Him. 

Jesus was even beaten by some of the council. 

They too, ridiculed Jesus. 

Jesus was falsely accused by so-called 

witnesses, unjustly condemned by His judges,

 and insulted by all. They continued to strike 

Jesus and even beat Him with a whip before 

He was lynched and/or crucified. 

This was the greatest contempt and most 

disgraceful punishment which could 

possibly be shown.

The Romans murdered 
the Son of God.

History and current events are full of examples 

of people who may win a series of battles to get ahead,

 but they lose the war and will eventually have to 

suffer the consequences of their actions.

In other words, we are talking about cause and effect.

The law of consequences states that every result or 

outcome (effect) happens for a reason (cause).

Let us not think that we are so deserving and

entitled that we can get away with bad choices... 

even if it seems like we will never get caught. 

Listen, no one... regardless of 

their tribe, creed, color, class,

 religion, language, age, culture,

 political beliefs, educational

 background, or socio-economic 

differences, experiences, or 

realities can escape the

 consequences of their actions. 

All walks of life will experience

sowing and reaping.Whatever 

we sow into the lives of others, 

be it happiness or misery, we

will eventually reap. 


Reaping is no respecter of 

persons. Each of us will reap

 the fruits of our actions. We 

will inherit goodwill or 


Negative deeds will eventually

bring harmful repercussions. 

If we sow evil... we reap evil.

It comes back to us... one way 

or another.

God is not only the Creator of what is visible

 but what is invisible (Colossians 1:16). 

This includes everything in the spiritual 

realm, including our emotional state.

Some people’s disposition has 

become supremely vicious. 

Their conscience is dominated

 by the evil one.

Jesus knows how stubborn 

mankind is.

Jesus knows what cruel,

violent, indecent treatment 


Humility humanizes a leader.

Humility is the trait that strengthens

all other positive attributes. 

When we respond to evil in humility and grace, 

we are proving that good triumphs over 

wickedness. Returning good for evil is one 

of the greatest demonstrations of strength.

Jesus died on the cross for us all... 

even the very same people who

crucified Him.

All history should be a lesson in humility. 

We should be concerned with what is right. 

Seeking to be humble is a series of ascending 

stages to divine understanding.

Because Jesus had these human experiences... 

He could sympathize and empathize with our 

weaknesses, pain, struggles, and temptations.

Jesus has been there, done that, and gone 

through it all. Jesus is fully aware of and 

sensitive to... the feelings, thoughts, and 

experiences we now have.

Jesus' humanity enabled Him 

to sympathize with our human

 frailties in ways others never 


God loves us and is under no illusion about

 who we are, where we have been, what we

 have done or acquired. 

Some of our deepest personal problems

are rooted in something we can't control... 

dysfunctional generational behavioral 

patterns our ancestors left behind. 

The cycle has been repeated over and 

over again. It is time that we consciously

 control our choices. After all, we will, at 

some point, become our children's 

children's ancestors. Our behavior becomes

 a model or example to the next generations.

We must stop the cycle that has polluted 

the minds and hearts of our families for 


The struggle for civil rights and human 

rights are the most basic rights of

 all human beings. It is not a privilege... 

it is a right. All human beings are born

free and equal!

Civil rights and human rights

 should matter to everyone, 

especially to those 

who know God. 

Treat others the way you would want to be 

treated. Having said that, what would Jesus do, 


Jesus would have us think about others the 

way we would want to be thought of.

 Feel about others the way we would want 

others to feel about us, and speak to others the

 way we would want to be spoken to or 

spoken of.

All are equal, in God's sight,

but treated unequally by man.

Man has made a mockery of 

"All men are created equal." 

Some have spoken out calling 

this a myth... a self-evident lie.

Some have admitted that belief in God’s

 equality in human creation would form

 the basis for a powerful attack upon the 

brutality of the slave trade, slavery, and 

every other kind of injustice.

Unfair practices and an uneven playing field 

may have allowed some to get to the top 

of their profession, but God knows. Pride 

has a way of bringing one back to the 



There are numerous people who made it to 

the top, but they are not wise. In fact, some 

of the most prominent people in our society 

claim to be the smartest ones. But, when you 

see their behaviors... chauvinism, bigotry, 

lying and laziness... you realize they are not 

wise. Their intelligence helped them achieve 

success in academia, athletics, politics, business 

and entertainment. But, their lack of wisdom


brings disgrace upon them, their families and 

everyone who ever supported them.

To gain wisdom, we must exercise Humility 

and be willing to learn from our history and

and are made in God's image and likeness 

(Genesis 1:27).

Human rights should be rooted in God and 

in our being. 

May we arise and embrace our inherent

 dignity as human beings and not deprive 

any person of life, liberty, or the pursuit

of happiness.

One important aspect of God’s character: 

He does not favor... and never has favored...

one person or group of people over others. 

No matter what external circumstances, 

such as socioeconomic status or nationality, 

for there is no respect of persons with God. 

God’s fairness is toward 

all humans:

Job 34:19: “Yet He is not partial to princes, 

nor does He regard the rich more than the poor; 

for they are all the work of His hands.”

Let us break free and clean up the 

generational mess some of our fallen, 

unchecked, and unsaved ancestors passed 

down. It is not a legacy to embrace, it is

 a lie that can affect one's descendants. 

Just think for a moment of the sins that

 could be visited upon our children. 

Whether we like it or not, our children are 

becoming just like us. And as time goes by we 

will find that they have inherited some of the

 same tendencies toward sin that we learned 

from our own parents and grands. 

Dag Hammerskjold, former Secretary to the

 United Nations, once said, “You cannot play

 with the animal in you without becoming 

wholly animal; play with falsehood without 

forfeiting your right to truth; play with 

cruelty without losing your sensitivity of mind. 

He who wants to keep his garden tidy doesn’t

 reserve a plot for weeds.”

If one is sincerely trying to do the right thing 

and emulate the character of God, they 

understand and value honesty and integrity.  

Despite our heritage, we each have to make

 our own choice if we want to righteously follow 

God and live our lives in reverence to Him.

“The earth is the Lord’s 

and everything in it” 

(Psalm 24:1). 

God is the Source of all there is! 

Everything that exists is God’s property, and

we exists for God's purposes. God's rights 

and His creation are being violated every day... 

where is the outrage?!

How can we speak with authority to the world

 about human rights when we have yet to 

achieve racial equality?  

America, we must taken an enlightened look 

at the degradation, dehumanization, injustices, 

inequities, police brutality, civil rights and 

human dignity in our own communities.

Why aren't we, as Believers, standing up for

the rights of the oppressed and the vulnerable?

When will we stand up and say injustice is


Make it make sense???

Thank God, there are multitudes of hearts and

 minds working together for a much higher 


God's twin purposes for creation is to reveal 

His character and nature, and to provide for 

what God has made. Humanity's use of God's 

amazing creation must promote... not 

compromise the ability of creation to reveal

 God and to provide for humans and other

 creatures on the earth now... and in the future.  

As stewards of God's creation, let us persevere 

and not allow the world to be defined by the 

injustices, inequities, death and destruction 

caused by some. Rather, let us intervene on 

behalf of the oppressed and try to resolve the

inequities or injustices many face... based on

 their melanin. 

Civil rights and equality is the process of making 

things right and fair. It need not be out of the 

question; and contention coupled with police 

brutality need not be the inevitable. 

Without humility, all of a one's other strengths

 become watered down... like a vapor... 


Jesus' parable said,

"Whatever you did for one

of the least of these brothers

and sisters of mine,

you did for Me."

Although stained by Eurocentrism, 

human rights is inherent to being

human. It is the heart of the 

Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is what 

Jesus pronounces, declares, asserts 

and establishes in the gospel accounts.

The answer lies in Jesus Christ and in the 

sacrifice He made on the cross. 

2 Corinthians 5:21 tells us: 

For He made Him who knew no sin to be

 sin for us, that we might become the

 righteousness of God in Him. 

Jesus, having lived a perfect life without sin, 

was the only acceptable sacrifice for our sins.

When Jesus suffered and died on the cross, 

He bore the penalty for all of our sins – 

including any generational influences at 

work in our lives.

Generational influences can be ingrained. 

What our parents and ancestors lived through 

and by can have real impact on our lives today.

 These influences have, in many cases, positively 

shaped us or... burdened and damaged our 


 But if we repent and acknowledge what 

Christ did for us on the cross, we can walk

 free from the sin that has entangled us for years. 

Not only can we walk free, but our children and 

future generations can walk free as well!
