“Our nation was born in genocide when it 

embraced the doctrine that the original 

American, the Indian, was an inferior race. 

Even before there were large numbers of 

Negroes on our shore, the scar of racial 

hatred had already disfigured colonial society. 

From the sixteenth century forward, blood 

flowed in battles over racial supremacy. We are 

perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter 

of national policy to wipe out its indigenous 

population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic 

experience into a noble crusade. 

Indeed, even today we have not permitted 

ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this 

shameful episode. Our literature, our films, our 

drama, our folklore all exalt it. Our children are 

still taught to respect the violence which 

reduced a red-skinned people of an earlier

 culture into a few fragmented groups herded 

into impoverished reservations.”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

When siblings are busy fighting, satan and his 


henchmen can easily attack and rob their poor 


mother. The same holds true for all of us.

A united people, bearing with one 


another in love, can emerge so


much stronger!

We, as a people, should come together... undivided, 


standing arm in arm, harmoniously working together 


so that the contemptuous, evil-intentioned, greedy and 


grafty brutes can never plunder, kill, devastate, or


 divide us... as they so brutally did to our ancestors.

Satan’s art of war is to use all means necessary


 to confuse us, suppress us, weaken us, tear us 


down, condemn us, accuse us, crush our spirits, 


lay heavy burdens and strongholds on us, plant 


seeds of negativity, steal our joy, destroy our 


testimony and or ministry, kill the consciousness 


of God’s people. and eradicate, dismantle, crush,


 wreck, shatter, sabotage, wipe out and or block


 any form of advancement of Blacks by any means 


necessary, and/or ruin any evidence that glorifies 


and honors God.



One thing for certain, 


Satan doesn't want to see


 God's people come together...


 moving in power and victory.

Satan's mission is to kill, steal, enslave, bind, 


confuse, harden hearts, sow lies, slander, deter,


 cause fear, doubt, unbelief and worry. He takes


 pleasure in crazy-making, dividing, distracting, 


and destroying.


“Though many non-Native Americans have


 learned very little about us, over time we have 


had to learn everything about them. We watch 


their films, read their literature, worship in their


 churches, and attend their schools. 


Every third-grade student in the United States 


is presented with the concept of Europeans 


discovering America as a "New World" with 


fertile soil, abundant gifts of nature, and glorious


mountains and rivers. 


Only the most enlightened teachers will explain


 that this world certainly wasn't new to the millions 


of indigenous people who already lived here when 


Columbus arrived.”

People, of African ancestry,


were not slaves or savages


when they were kidnapped 


and dispossessed from 


Africa. 

Too often, students’ first exposure to 


African History occurs through the study 


of slavery. Africans are portrayed in 


schools as savage, barbaric people. Some


 have attempted to create the illusion that those 


who came to the Americas were “fortunate” 


because they were saved from savage, unstable,


 poverty-stricken Africa. But if we are going to 


be honest, thousands of years of African history 


existed before contact with Europe.

It was not at all in the best interest of Africans 


to be vigorously raided, stripped of their clothing, 


have their heads shaved, be placed in shackles and


 chains, taken from their homes, marched hundreds


of miles to the coast and thrust into the holds of 


ships. They were not only separated from their 


families, loved ones, and homeland... they were


weakened from illness, exposure, and malnutrition


as a result of the horrendous march forced upon


 them. 

The enslaved were loaded onto boats and transported 


across the Atlantic, in this stew of human misery and


 terror. 

Millions of Africans were forcibly shipped 


in chains, shackled in ranks, fed communally 


in fetid holds tightly-packed with people who had


high levels of nausea, and sickness. 



It is gut-wrenching trying to imagine being in a 


floating prison, being carried to an unknown land,


 thousands of miles from your homeland and loved 


ones, on an overcrowded, unsanitary ship that 


would ordinarily be used to transport animals. 


Our ancestors were put through hell. Their journey


 was truly brutal and dehumanizing. 



The enslaved were seen as little more than


cargo by the owners of the slave ships, so, quite 


simply, the more they carried, the more money 


they stood to earn. This meant that most slave 


ships were not only packed to capacity, they 


were packed way beyond capacity. 


Over-crowding was commonplace and, for


 many years during the high point of the 


transatlantic slave trade, there was simply 


nothing stopping the owners of the ships from


 setting sail with as many slaves as they could


 carry, both above and below deck.

The majority of slaves were kept below deck


 in cramped, inhumane conditions. The enslaved 


were often chained lying down, side-by-side on


 the floor. This meant hundreds could be lain 


side-by-side and head-to-toe. 

Many had no more than a few inches to move. 


Some may have been permitted to sit up, but 


most were forced to lie down for almost the


 entirety of the two-month journey. 

Women and children were often permitted


 a degree of mobility, compared to the bonded 


men. But the African women and children were 


without defense against crew men who regularly 


abused and raped them during the voyage 


to the Americas. The captives had no protection. 


The captors did anything they wanted to do to 


the men, women and children.


Moreover, the fetid and filthy conditions


on the ship created the environment for 


contagious sicknesses, notably the 


“bloody flux” (dysentery), which infected 


the captives, killing many and reducing


 others to a wretched state. 



The condition on the ship was beyond 


appalling. The captives were forced to 


relieve themselves where they sat. The 


atmosphere was hellish, on the filthy ship. 


The captives were treated like beasts... 


completely dehumanized. The filthy 


condition of the vessel caused many


 to die of disease.

Out of over 12.5 million captives, almost 2 


million didn't survive the awful, inhumane 


journey, that sometimes took several months


 to transport. Some of the captives died of


 disease, some committed suicide to avoid 


further suffering. Some became ill due to 


scurvy, dysentery, influenza, etc. 

The captain of the ship ordered his crew to


 throw them overboard for being sick, 


or as a disciplinary measure... they would 


hang the captives overboard and the 


sharks would eat them. 

Some of the captives were sexually abused, 


brutally beaten, fondled and whipped, by many 


of the unscrupulous slave traders and crew 


members. Some of the women arrived in the 


new land bearing the children of their abusers. 


The captives were confronted with a different 

language and culture. The kidnapping reshaped 

the entire structure of their way of life.

These captives were human beings, not God's


after-thought. Trust, God is the Savior of all 


mankind. Africans and African Americans 


were created by God, the Creator of the 


Universe and all sentient beings, for a noble 


and eternally divine purpose. 



God did not cast down, condemn, reduce or 


assign Africans or African Americans to an 


inferior rank or position... that is delusional.


 This is man's evil doing. 



No... 


the real savage brutes... 



were the captors and



slave-traders.

The Atlantic slave-trade was an extremely 

cruel business which impacted not only 


the lives of the captives and their descendants, 


but also the economies and histories of large 


parts of the world.



*The captives were sold into slavery 


through public auctions. 

There has been documentation that during slaver


y and into the 20th century, black babies were 


used as alligator bait. It has been reported that 


profit-seeking white hunters used black 


“slave babies” to lure alligators out of the swamps 


to be killed for their skin.

According to an article published in the 


Miami New Times in 2014, there are many


 documents that support the theories of Black


 babies being used as bait for alligators during


 the slavery period.


*Slaveholders imposed newly arrived 


Africans into forced labor, harsh punishment, 


torture, abuse and threats of family separation.


*The enslaved were prohibited from 


learning to read and write. 

Due to, unjustifiable, racial prejudices 


or just out right ignorance, many people 


use defensive projection, when referring


 to African Americans. They project


their own negative energy and struggles


onto other people. 



The abusers goal was... and is... to turn the 


whole world against their victims. Their joy 


is to destroy. They refuse to believe and 


would rather embrace... 


"a dressed up lie" than the "naked truth." 



Many are unaware that


 Black people built 


one of the most


 advanced civilizations 


on Earth. 



The demand for Black slave labor 


created an incentive to justify the inhumane


 treatment of Black people, by creating 


the lie that Black people were inferior 


and less than human.



Some toxic people love dusting others with 


their poison. Sometimes, it is more like drowning


people in their bigotry. Some have made it their 


life's mission to go down into the most devilish 


parts of themselves in order to create and sow 


seeds of hurt, hatred, pain, hostility, and hardships 


for others, based solely on race. This is the behavior 


of insecure people trying to seem important.



Some will often feel a need to assert their


 importance. They puff themselves up to create 


the impression that they have arrived. These 


things are done in an attempt to alleviate


 their own sense of weakness.



African Americans were considered as 


property. European colonizers worked very 


hard to erase, corrupt, and steal African and 


African American history. 



They purposely paved over many significant


 contributions made by African Americans. 


Many of the contributions were grossly


 ignored and purposely silenced, mainly by 


those Europeans who had a fragile sense of 


self. 



To avoid confronting truth the Europeans 


whitewashed the truth and the artifacts 


and blatantly belittled Blacks.



The colonial educational system purposely 


omitted African and African American history. 


They would have us all think that even in 2021


African history doesn't exist.


The massive slave-trade has


 immensely impacted the world 


we live in, even today. It has also 


contributed to the development 


of racism and police brutality.

People create, but 


God is the Creator. 


In God's infinite and unfathomable


wisdom... He created and fashioned 


each of us.


God made one race... 


the human race. 


Some people have difficulty accepting the 


idea that although we are all different... 


we all should be able to experience the best


 of humanity's diversity and be treated the 


same. We are indisputably different, but the 


same.We are all one image... originated 


from the same blueprint! 



God created the world and everything in


 it, and God made every nation of men 


from... 


“One blood.”


God is All... and in all.

Colossians 3:11


“All” means “all”… 


no exclusions.



God is the Upholder 

of all creation. 


God shows no partiality, but judges with


 complete justice. Likewise, Jesus showed


 no partiality. By example, we are also told 


to show no partiality, but treat all people 


fairly.



Scripture is crystal clear that a person’s 


dignity and worth is not based on their


ethnicity, nationality, gender,


 background, wealth, or position.


Acts 10:34-35, Leviticus 19:33-34, Galatians

 3:28, Romans 3:10-24, James 2:5-9, 

Ephesians 6:9, Leviticus 19:14,

 1 Corinthians 12:4-26



Every person has equally 


inherent worth because we 


were all created by God and 


in His own image. 


Genesis 1:27 



“All human beings are born free


 and equal in dignity and rights…” 


(Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948) 


God has created for us... a rich and 


blessed multicultural diversity! 



Whether one is rich or poor, in God's 


eyes, even with centuries of racial 


injustice, we all stand as equals. We 


are God's creation... enmeshed by 


our beautiful differences and 


design. 



God loves us all and is under no illusion 


about who we are, where we have been, 


what we have done, what we have acquired 


or ourrace. Even with racism built right


 into every level of our society, God views 


us all as His highly valued treasure! If we 


exist, we have value and worth and are 


beautiful in the eyes of God. 


The idea of difference, worldly isms, and class 


privilege are interlocking systems of oppression. 


They appear to be natural; however, they are, in


 fact, socially constructed and are used to 


rationalize inequality and all kinds of isms.



To say that humans are in the image of God is to


 recognize the special qualities of human nature 


which allows God to be made manifest in humans. 


African Americans have endured many 


trials, tribulations, racial injustices, and blatant 


racism... based on known fabricated reports


that all-white juries returned guilty verdicts on 


This has led to wrongful convictions of countless 


innocent African Americans, over the 


centuries. 



African Americans have suffered from war, 


which called on them to defeat foreign enemies 


while simultaneously fighting against segregation


 and discrimination at home. They have been 


subjected to violence, and racially discriminatory


policies, discriminatory housing practices, 


segregated schools, lunch counters, waiting 


rooms, water fountains, restrooms, and


transportation. They endured harassment


 and threats of violenceThey were beaten 


and tortured, in many cases by police into 


confessing to lies. 



Our ancestors have been brutally murdered,


 subjected to lynching deaths, and racial bias


 and unequal treatment in the criminal justice 


system which has, in turn, led to countless


 sentences of death and untold anguish... 


simply because our ancestors were 


considered, by some, as less than human.



African American history has been blatantly 


omitted from textbooks; although free Black 


labor has been foundational to the growth of 


America and America's economy. 



Enslaved people constructed the 


infrastructure and generated significant


 money-making materials and goods such 


as: cotton, sugar and tobacco. 



African American labor was necessary


 and very important in industry, 


agriculture, and service. Black workers


 have endured a long history of 


discrimination; but, have earned the right 


to the soil, many times over. 



Surprisingly, there is one important institution 


that fails to provide an inclusive environment


 to educate, inspire and cultivate conversations 


about the contributions and various struggles 


African Americans had... and continue to face,


in the United States of America



It is in the American public school systems 


enlightened best interest to allow teachers to


 teach truth, not tell pure fiction that is driven by


 white supremacy. It appears that something is 


fundamentally wrong when a teacher is 


allowed to teach a student how to put a 


condom on a banana... and not allowed


 to explain and teach students true, African 


and all inclusive American history. 



African Americans should be made visible 


in American history. Their journey was an 


American journey. African American history 


is American history. African Americans have 


a rightful place as equal actors in American 


history, and teaching the history of African 


civilization increases everyone's accurate


 understanding of world history.



The system has grossly failed to properly 


awaken the joy in creative expression and


knowledge, to educate students to think 


intensively, become discoverers, be lifelong


 learners, be problem solvers, think critically, 


be creative, have integrity and respect, care 


and want to give back to the community, be


 able to see the world differently, and ask the


 question... why? 



The public educational system of a nation is 


the true indicator of that nations strength and


the quality of life and well being of its citizens. 


Education has the potential to develop students


 personally, socially, and academically. Education 


is the art of assisting discovery and developing 


one's values and abilities to become a productive


 member of society



In order to take a nation to new and higher 


heights, there has to be an excellent educational


 system, which consists of true education 


and personal development. Students must be 


taught how to think, not be limited to thinking 


only what the powers that be have decided 


to program students to think.



According to Marian Wright Edelman, 


"Education is improving the lives of others


 and leaving your community and world better


 than you found it."



The educational system continues to 


neglect, restrict, silence and dismiss the slave 


narratives as propaganda. They do not mention 


the history of Africa before slavery and ignore


the works of African and African American


scholars, doctors, inventors, etc. 



The hard truths of African enslavement 


falls by the wayside because truth makes


 some people uncomfortable. As a result, 


generations of Americans have been 


purposely miseducated because of this 


unwise disregard for the truth.



A sentence or two about the history of slavery 


is a complete disservice to all learners. 



Why would the educational system fail to 


provide the educational resources to better


 educate learners? 



Teaching students the true American history,


which includes the difficult story of slavery, 


white supremacy, their legacies, true origins 


of the culture, and historical heritage of 


African Americans is needed and necessary



Are teachers willing to teach true history?



Do teachers know enough about African 


civilization to teach students adequately?



Will there be repercussions for truth 


seeking teachers? 



Are teachers afraid to teach truth?



Does the institutionalized approval process 


determine which textbooks will be used?

Historian Donald Yacovone, an associate at the 


Hutchins Center for African & African American 


Research-Harvard University, and a 2013 winner


 of the W.E.B. Du Bois medal, and co-author of 


"The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross"


 with Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and now writing, 


"Teaching White Supremacy: 


The Textbook Battle Over Race 


in American History" states:


 "This is essential work that has to be done. If 

America is to be a nation that fulfills its 

democratic promise, the history of slavery and 

white supremacy have to be taught in schools

 across the country. 

We need to acknowledge that white supremacy 

remains an integral part of American society

 and we need to understand how we got to where 

we are. The consequences of not doing so are

 lethal. 

White supremacy is a toxin. The older history 

textbooks were like syringes that injected the

 toxin of white supremacy into the mind of 

many generations of Americans. What has 

to be done is teach the truth about slavery as a 

central institution in America’s origins, as the 

cause of the Civil War, and about its legacy that

 still lives on. The consequences of not doing so,

 we’re seeing every day."

There is no more powerful force than a 


people roused with strong minds unbound, 


gripped and inspired in and by their history. 


There is a golden Chinese saying:


If you want to plan for a year, plant crops.

If you want to plan for 10 years, plant trees.

If you want to plan for generations, plant the 

seeds of education.

We must seek truth and

 


cast out all reckless



disregard for the truth.

Only the devil would want to kill the mind 


and steal one's history, culture, and future.

It was the ingenuity, blood, sweat, and strength 


of the enslaved who, for over two centuries,  


developed and played an important part in


developing America's economy and wealth.


Slavery was instituted mostly for economic 


reasons. Unpaid slave labor was a fundamental


 part of the economy when the republic was built.



During the Revolutionary War, both the enslaved 

and free Blacks fought for the Colonies, but after 

the fact... the 1787 Constitution included three 

clauses reinforcing slavery. Blacks were

 designated as property and counted as

 ‘three-fifths of a person’. 

The fallen human heart assumes the worst 


about people. It is fueled by recycled prejudices,

 

subliminal and sometimes blatant false and

 

negative stereotypes, white supremacy, misguided 


convictions, antagonism directed against people


 of a different race, and plain old animosity. 


Antagonism toward people of another color, 


language, or ethnic background is antagonism


toward God Himself. 



Are we acting in ways 


contrary to God's values?



Racism is blatant ignorance that continues to 


dehumanize, violate and ignore human and civil 


rights. It is harmful to a country and its culture. 



Racism is a hardened and unfair generalization


that causes intense moral, cultural, and economic 


hardships. It is a treacherous, appalling, harmful, 


evil, socially constructed human tragedy which 


denies entire groups of people human dignity 


and respect. 



For one race to loftily, boastfully, egotistically, 

snobbishly and self-importantly claim superiority

 

over another offends and bemoans the heart of 


God. 



There is no hierarchy of human beings verified


anywhere in Scripture. There is no Scripture


that backs up such absurd claims. The Bible 


makes it clear that racism is wrong and


 entirely contradictory to God's command to


"Love our neighbors". 



Racism is a sin against God.


Racism denigrates the beauty


and majesty of God’s diverse 


creation.


Humanity’s failure to honor the differences


 of others, care for one another in their particular 


struggles, and empathize with their experiences 


stems from our fallen and unrighteous nature


 and an attempt to live in defiance of God.


Sadly, too many feet have strayed


 from God. Too many hearts are


 inebriated with ego, greed,


and power.


Knowing the horrors about hell should


motivate us all to be reconciled to God.


It should also humble us and give us all 


greater love, respect and appreciation 


for both God and all people.

Jesus teaches us that those who


 have brutally oppressed others 


will be called to account for their 


actions. 

In Christ, the things that would ordinarily segregate


 us are interwoven into a single exquisite tapestry. 


Things like race, gender, and class are no longer 


encumbrances to solidarity. They are what makes 


our oneness so beautiful.



Jesus embraced others with a radical 


disregard for race, tribe, creed, color, class,


 religion, language, age, culture, disability, 


political beliefs, educational backgrounds, 


or socioeconomic differences, experiences, 


or realities. 



"Jesus ransomed people for God


 from every tribe and language

 

and people and nation."


Revelations 5:9

Jesus did not allow social status or cultural 


barriers to dictate His relationships with 


people. Jesus was criticized for His actions, 


but what prophet ever lived without 


criticism???


"The body is a unit, though it is made up of 

many parts . . . so it is with Christ". 


1 Corinthians 12:12

Throughout Scripture, we see God working to redeem


and make a way for people from every tribe and 


tongue and nation.



On the authority of Jesus, we are responsible for 


loving everyone... even people we have been 


brought up to loathe.


All human beings deserve respect. As far as the 


Scriptures are concerned, there are many 


nationalities, but there is only one race...


the human race.



If we treat a person with contempt, we are 


mistreating a person created in God’s image; 


we are hurting somebody whom God loves and 


for whom Jesus died.



No race is better or worse 


than the other.

African and African American history holds 


a long, rich and deep spiritual heritage. Jesus is 


central to that heritage. 



The struggle for civil rights and human 


rights should matter to everyone, especially 


to those who know God. It increases 


our understanding about world history.

Those who were brutally enslaved and 


dehumanized, built the infrastructure of 


this great country... which in and of itself, 


is a crucial part of our world and our


nations’ true story.

History and context matters



History is an important and interesting field of the study 


of past events which can honor and provide perspective


 of our past and ground us in our roots of who we are and 


where we come from. Our true history can reveal


 fascinating nuggets of truth and moments in time that 


gives us deeper and more meaningful insights of our


 ancestral past and our true identity.



 Historical narratives are not a synonym for historical 


truth. History is made up of a diverse montage of 


triumphs, missteps and tragedies. 



African Americans should know who they are, 


where they came from, and the beauty, power and 


complexity of African civilizations. Knowing 


our history helps advance our future. We can learn 


from past successes and mistakes. Our history can 


serve as a great torchbearer to our future...giving


 us a "heads up" on those things we can accentuate, as 


well as the wrongs we should have no part in. 



May we press on... moving onward and upward


 capitalizing on those historical strengths without 


reliving those past blunders.



History is a timeline full of fascinating, 


under-appreciated heroes, momentous 


milestones of the past and contributions


 African Americans made and continue to 


make that we did not and are not learning 


about in our educational system. 



Even pictured in the Bible are countless unsung


 heroes who have been portrayed quite differently


Unfortunately, history is overflowing with


 inaccuracies and omissions.



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 far too many cases, African Americans 


are grossly overlooked or never described 


in a positive light to any of usThe children 


and our world needs 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?



We are all God's offspring. 


For in God we live, move, and have our being. 


God is under no illusion about who we are. God


 is ever-present and dwells within every one of 


us.  According to Scripture, God, our Creator, is 


interested in all of humanity.



Jesus, Who gave up 

everything for us, did

 not die for man to assign 

meaning to the differences 

between human beings. 


Neither did Jesus write 

any non-white people 

out of the human family. 

His teachings are that 

of elevating humanity 

to a higher level of 

spirituality and 

enlightenment, 

not supremacy of one

 skin color over another.



Race was and is an offensively coarse concept,


 constructed by society to determine who belongs 


and who does not. The "Race" idea evolved over 


time. This societal construct was formulated to


 justify its new economic system of capitalism


 and an intense need for labor which depended


 on the institution of forced labor, especially the


 enslavement of African people.



History helps us to better understand many 


of our present day issues and why things are


 the way they are.



"There is nothing new under the sun".


Ecclesiastes 1:9



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.


African American history gives us a 


wellspring of great examples of 


virtues we can pursue. 


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


narrative at odds with actual events. It has 


been grossly distorted and misrepresented. So 


much of what has been passed on as "history" 


are blatant lies. 



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. These disingenuous accounts


 have threatened democracy and undermined 


reality.



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. 



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 


image. 



Repetition can rewire the brain. It can 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 


propaganda.



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. 


Some have chosen to deny reality, come up with

 irrational distractions, deflections, confusion or 

outright lies as a way to avoid and/or deny the

 existence and validity of uncomfortable truths. 



Much of history that was taught in school was 


riddled with blatant lies... exaggerated and filled


 with obvious false statements written and 


published by others who knew they were 


telling lies and twisting the truth.



History is fraught with forgeries, perjuries 


and outright lies. Many 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. 

 


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.



 Adding insult to injury, these lies and


distortions about our racist legacy have laid the


 deceptive groundwork for imminent catastrophes, 


i.e., racial indifferences, injustice, 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 and 


they passed these distortions and/or ideological 


influences on to generations following them. 



Disgracefully, some have latched on to these 


delusional beliefs and claims which devalued 


the humanness in others, based totally on skin


 color, as if these belittling, unjust, repressive 


assertions were the gospel truth.  



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 


contexts.



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, dismissing 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. We must unlock the


 vault of historical lies, 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. 



We all need the truth!

Many people with low self-esteem and look


for ways to feel better. One way some of them


 try to do that is by putting others down using 


belittling, condescending and patronizing speech.



This kind of speech is a passive-aggressive 

approach to giving someone a verbal put-down 

while maintaining a facade of reasonableness 

or friendliness.

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. 



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.



When people get desperate or feel threatened 


they create illusions of victory... where no 


evidence exists. They turn blind eyes and bend


 reality to selfishly suit their desires and personal


 preferences. They will go to extreme measures 


to cover up their misdeeds. 



Ignorant, uncultivated, and crude people seem


 to find pleasure and mock the shortcomings and


 faults with others... or their ideas. They vilify


 and/or discredit what they do not understand


They make accusations often with offensive and 


dishonest intentions. 



Satan's lies become their truths.


Lies and betrayal gives 


tremendous insights into one’s 


character. Idle minds and a willing 


tongue can be used as the devil's 


mouthpiece.


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 


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. 



It is evil to misrepresent someone with 


delusional opinions and false assumptions


 based on incorrect interpretation of 


another's reality and cultural norms



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.



 They 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 


deaths. 



No one wants to be deliberately lied to, told 


half-truths or given exaggerated accounts of 


people or experiencesThe 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. 



The truth is the mortal enemy of the lie. 


If one is sincerely trying to do the right thing 


and emulate the character of God, they 


understand and value honesty and integrity.  

The longer people avoid the discomfort of


discussing enslavement and colonization in the US. 


the longer non-whites suffer structural racism.

The more we seek truth and 

embrace truth about ourselves, 

others, and life, in general...


the more we will be able to see 


past Satan's smokescreens.


Truth trumps a lie... 


every time.

The aim of many historical narratives is not 


necessarily to ascertain what actually happened


in the past, but to justify what happens in the 


present and future. One of the many game plans


 racism tries to obtain is the eradication of all 


of the historical contributions made by 


African Americans


When are we, as a nation, 



going to confront our 



history... honestly?



Racism is a system. Race and


 the resulting racism were


 initiated by White Europeans 


and Americans so as to justify


 the practice of slavery on 


people for profit. 


There were enormous economic interests 


in justifying Black enslavement and colonization. 


Race was constructed as a means to justify the


oppression and economic exploitation of 


African Americans.


There is no true biological race. 


Race is intrinsically a social construct rather 


than biologically based. It is an evolving social 


idea created to justify racial inequality and


 ultimately justify ideological beliefs of 


superiority and white advantage. Recognizing


 race as a social construct does not make race


 less"real."



Thomas Jefferson claimed there were natural 


racial differences and asked scientists to find them. 


Instead of asking "if" Blacks were inferior, Jefferson


instructed scientists to find out "how" blacks were


 inferior. 

Why have scholars excluded Africa's 


extraordinarily rich history and/or brushed 


over ancient civilizations? 



Why would one go to such great lengths to 


make others believe that Africans have no past


 and have not contributed anything to the world? 



Why have historians not dispelled the 


stereotypical view of Africans being primitive 


without any appreciation for planning or design?



Why would anyone deliberately eliminate 


the greatest period of African achievements 


and destroy many of the historical buildings 


and monuments and never mention the beauty 


of the continent before its destruction?



Why would anyone purposely start and spread 


smallpox and influenza which would kill 


Africans?



Why are there so many misrepresentations 


and stereotypes of Africa and 


African Americans



Why would anyone think that people from


 some of the largest civilizations in human 


history be better off with slavery and 


colonization?

So, why is the truth of African history 


being withheld and/or distorted?


Now is the time to 


focus on the real truth.


African Americans have been deliberately


 miseducated about their history and 


themselves!

Telling historical truths is a way to share injustices


 and begin to righteously work towards rectifying


 injustices.


 Telling the truth is a way to begin to correct


 the misrepresentations and stereotypes of 


Africans and righteously work towards 


rectifying the injustices and idea of whiteness 


and the lie at the heart of white supremacy 


that devalues Africa and African Americans. 

The journey of humanity is far 


more diverse and beneficial than 


many ever imagined. The further 


back we venture,the more clarity


 and appreciation we have regarding 


righteous human relations and


resolutions for the problems with


which we are now facing.


"History tells a people who 

they are and what they have

 accomplished."

Dr. John Henrik Clarke

Africans were the most industrious and 


advanced race on earth. Africans are the 


founding fathers of most ancient civilizations. 


This has and still makes white people afraid.


 For eons some have done everything to 


segregate blacks into poor schools and districts. 


Some have purposely hidden the truth in the 


faces of African Americans in hopes they, with 


truth being so close, will not be able to focus 


on it until it's too late.



Digging deeper into African history helps


 to clarify many of these hidden truths.


From approximately 6000 BCE (when the Nile Valley


was first inhabited) to 525 BCE is when the traditions 


of several civilizations were established. The Stones 


were used for constructing images, tombs and even


the great pyramids of Nubia and Kemet.


According to Smithsonian 


magazine, a fossil discovery in 


1924 revolutionized the search


for human ancestors, leading 


scientist to Africa.


Africa is a very relevant and indispensable country. 


It is also the most centrally located place on earth. 


It covers 6% of Earth's total surface area and 20% 


of its land area.



Africa is a continent of thousands of languages 


and cultures, exceptional eco-diversity, and over 


a billion dynamic and ingenious Africans. Africa 


is the world's second largest and second most 


populous continent, after Asia. 



 According to many experts, 


Africa made the largest regional 


contribution to the gene pool of 


modern humans.



Studying African history and current events 


gives us a deeper understanding of world 


history and even modern American history. 



 African Studies help us to better understand


 ourselves. We become better-informed global 


citizens when we study Africa. 

Let those who do, stop looking

 


at black people as property. If the 



truth be told, genetically speaking, 



we were all black once.


🌍African History Matters.



African American history provides insights. 


It helps us to extrapolate from the subject 


matter of thought, discourse, study, etc., 


although it is not explicitly stated.

It is in our DNA, as African Americans to 


desire to know our roots... our ancestors


Knowing our history... gives us a greater 


appreciation for our present situation. 


When we know our true history and can


focus on the good and valuable contributions 


to society that Africans made historically 


and African Americans continue to make, 


we can draw from those cultural differences 


and gain much needed insight


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.

Did you know that in the 


14th century, the city of 


Timbuktu, in West Africa,


 was five times larger than 


the city of London and was 


the richest city in the 


world? 


Today, Timbuktu 


is 236 times 


smaller than 


London.



Why?

The kingdoms of Benin and Ife were led by 


the Yoruba people and sprang up between the 


11th and 12th centuries.


 The Ife civilization goes back as far as 500 BC 


and its people made objects from bronze, brass, 


copper, wood, and ivory. Studies of the Benin


 show that they were highly skilled in ivory 


carving, pottery, rope and gum production.

In the west of Africa, the kingdom of Ghana


 was a vast Empire that spread across an area 


the size of Western Europe. Between the 


ninth and thirteenth centuries 


Ghana traded in gold, salt and 


copper. Ghana was highly 


advanced and prosperous. 


It is said that the Ghanaian ruler had 


an army of 200,000 men.

Our historical texts are based on warmed-over,


 whitewashed tales where details are distorted to 


make blatant historical lies more compelling and 


make some seem righteous and more admired


Some are celebrating and romanticizing their 


slaveholding ancestors and conveniently omitting


 millions of enslaved people. All are culpable of 


serious lapses... especially the biased narratives


 where the invasion of Africa and the presence of 


African Americans are mysteriously twisted, 


distorted, overlooked and/or purposely omitted. 

History books have been manipulated, 


reproduced, and crafted for the purpose of 


filling a need, for the greedy 


to deceive. 


Those who turn a blind eye and bend reality 


to selfishly suit their desires and personal 


preferences go to extreme measures to cover 


up the misdeeds and the uncomfortable


 truths about the pains of the past. This 


misrepresents and misleadpeople about 


what happened centuries ago.



Many still view the inaccurate alternative 


facts and, in some cases, outright fraudulent


 claims as truth. This has compromised the


 integrity of our documented history.



 Jeopardizing historical events has... 


and can have drastic consequences, today.


The faux history of America has been shoved 


into schools and into the public eye. Many


 are very well aware of how some of the myths 


have purposely made one racial group


 appear to be more progressive than others. 



As we are all now seeing, the erasures and 


omissions of historical evils are beginning 


to backfire. This misinformation has led to 


generational lies, which have led to bigger 


lies people must tell to cover up these false 


versions of reality which are increasingly


 distancing one from the real self. This has 


created a deficiency in the education of 


Americans and destroyed the lives of 


thousands of African American families. 

When the refusal to remember becomes 


routinely a part of our political culture... 


the ability to have faith in our system and 


its leaders fades. 


Who is served?


Who benefits when historical deceptions 


happen? 


What are our children learning when they


 are exposed to liars on a world class scale?


Telling the truth empowers our children and 


generations to come to change, grow, foster 


cultural appreciation, fight against xenophobia, 


gives a full and honest view of African Americans, 


and helps end racism. It is not about 


erasing history, but confronting it honestly.



There's no question, talking about the 


generational lies and white privilege that 


was not earned, but ill-gotten can be a huge


 undertaking, but an incredibly important 


conversation about uncomfortable truths 


that should not be avoided. 



To not have these difficult conversations 


regarding uncomfortable truths could set 


your children up for failure. This could cause 


your children to fill in racial gaps by coming


to harmful, problematic and inaccurate 


conclusions that could prove to be harmful 


and painful for them, once their eyes are 


opened to truth



Real love for our children goes beyond 


generational hidden truths and lies that


 were used to control others


Your children may become freedom fighters. 


Their consciousness may be higher and broader, 


and they may just want to do what is right and


 they want to be that kind of person. It could be 


their assignment from God. 



Can you say the same about the secrets?



Telling the truth earns respect and helps 


them to not see their loved one being a part


of generational lies that have hurt and killed 


others. 



Reconciliation occurs when we are able to sincerely 


speak truth, even when it is uncomfortable. The truth


 about the good, bad and ugly of history will help our 


children navigate their natural curiosity. 



With the information super-highway at their fingertips, 


children are learning and hearing about historical truths 


and lies, whether it comes from the parents or not. 


Children usually look to their parents to explain.



Telling our children the truth about their history is the 


responsible thing to do. It will enlighten the parent 


and it will be beneficial... a light for our children. 



Let us not be surprised if we find ourselves teaching, 


growing and learning historical truths together.


There are conversations that need to happen around 


the world, ASAP! 


It is our prayer that people are open-


minded enough to learn the truth.

There are two ways to be fooled: to accept what 


isn’t true or to refuse to accept what is true.



Misinformation is false or inaccurate information 

that is taken seriously by the gullible and spread 

as if it were true. 

Why are we telling children stories 


that we know to be false? 




For approximately 500 years, white 


supremacy has exploited humanity 


and plundered the planet. If we 


know better, why aren't we teaching 


our children the truth rather than 


whitewashed version of U.S. 


history? 



Why are we, as Believers in God, 


not telling the truth and not trying to 


bring this selfish and horrible deed to 


all humanity to a halt? 



How can anyone continue to 


live with such horrible lies?

 



The prehistory of the United States


 

started with the arrival of Native 



Americans before 15,000 BC. The



 arrival of Christopher Columbus was



 in 1492.



Why are we not telling the truth about



how Native Americans were stripped


 

of their culture and pushed off their



 land? 

In Martin Luther King Jr.'s book on civil rights "Why We 


Can't Wait", he explains "Our nation was born in genocide 


when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, 


the Indian, was an inferior race."

According to Wikipedia, Mi'kmaq elder and human 


rights activist Daniel N. Paul has researched written


 extensively of historic accounts of atrocious acts of 


violence against First Nations peoples in North 


America. 


His work states European colonialism in Canada


 and America was a subjugation of the indigenous


 peoples and is an unequivocal violent series of


 crimes against humanity which has been 


unparalleled historically. 


Tens of millions First Nations died at the hands


 of European invaders in an attempt to appropriate


 the entirety of the land. Those hundreds of


 diverse civilizations and communities who thrived


across North America thousands of years before


 the exploits of Christopher Columbus were


 ultimately destroyed. 


Dehumanization occurred in the form of 


barbaric genocidal processes of murder, rape, 


starvation, enslavement, allocation, and germ 


warfare. Of the myriad of ways, the colonists


 performed ethnic cleansing, one of the most 


frequent was the practice of bounty hunting


 and scalping—where colonial conquerors 


would raid communities and remove the scalps 


of children and adults.


This war crime of scalping was most prevalent 


when maritime colonialists repeatedly


 attempted to eradicate Daniel N. Paul's 


ancestors, the Mi'kmaq. Scalping was common


 practice in many United States areas all the 


way until the 1860s in an attempt to completely 


wipe out the remaining First Nations.

Why are we not honestly and openly 


speaking out about the enduring power 


of white racism?



Are white people fearful that the 


atrocities, tragedies and many pitfalls 


they created in the lives of millions 


will be their fate?


Why aren't white people telling the 


truth about what they already know 


too well...



BLACKS ARE 





THEIR 





EQUAL!


Why are we still bending and 


censoring the truth to make others out 


to be the villains... when we know that 


has not always been the case?



How will future generations ever have 


honest discussions about real issues in 


our society?



Eventually, in the face of new 


historical evidence, the baseless


 misinformation and false memories 


that America's forefathers perpetuated 


can dangerously undermine and put 


future generations in harm's way. 



The effects refers to the tendency for 


the post misinformation to feel more 


like betrayal... shattering their faith, 


causing horrible feelings of distrust...


which can create major pitfalls.


How will future generations view their

 

ancestors who perpetuated white

 

supremacy ideologies and historical


 

lies that had such enormously tragic


 

impact on millions? 


To downplay the historical pitfalls and 


overly emphasize the successes. 



How will those generational 


historical distortions be 


explained?



The truth will get us unstuck. White

 people need to come to terms with

 reality, past and present, as opposed

to trusting the multitude of lies we

 have all been, systematically, 

encouraged to believe.

In the United States of America, we all have the freedom 


of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to 


assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of 


grievances. 



We have the right to have an opinion; although, no


opinion is absolute.


We love America and realize, from an acutely conscious 


and comparative perspective, that our country is a 


blessed and exceptional nation. To live in the United 


States is a great privilege. America is 


"Home". 


The United States of America is a beautiful country. The 


land of opportunity. One can be dazzled by the amazing 


wonders that are conveniently located right here on U.S. 


soil. One can venture out and about and see some of the 


most impressive and breath-taking places, in America.


 

Right now, our patriotism must be rooted in our


commitment to... and responsibilities for one another. 


When we pledge allegiance to the flag and to the republic 


for which it stands, we are pledging to stay united in spite 


of our differences. We are pledging to fight for justice, 


especially when it means we must take to the streets in the 


face of injustice. And we are pledging to fight for liberty, 


knowing that no one is free until we are all free.



In the end, those who claim to love this nation need also 


to love the ideals to which America aspires. Here in the 


United States, according to our Constitution, 


"All are created equal". 


We all deserve justice, and we all deserve liberation.

Telling the authentic story is a way to shine a light on very 


important issues and experiences that many may not be 


aware of. It gives everyone an opportunity to have a 


glimpse of another perspective.


Being truthful brings great benefits. Historical truths allow 


us to progressively become more improved, legitimate, 


sincere and higher versions of ourselves, as a “higher 


self”. This is at the heart of all of the “Spiritual” 


teachings. 

.

Cartoons have stereotyped and demonized 


African Americans and other non-whites


which helped to perpetuate negative stereotypes. 

These cruel depictions of African Americans being 


considered backwards are subliminal messages sent to our 


subconscious mind. 


Subliminal messages can literally bypass our


 conscious mind without us even knowing about it.


 It is for this reason that one cannot hear the 


"suggestions" embedded in subliminal messages. For 


some, subliminal messages are synonymous with mind 


control. Many are not consciously aware of their impact 


on our behavior. These subliminal messages are a form of 


mental manipulation designed to alter our behavior in 


some way without our consent or knowledge.



Several people worked on these animations, frame by 


frame for hours... what a horrible waste of talentThese 


depictions were also tools used to teach people of color 


how to feel about themselves and influence how others 


should regard African Americans.



African Americans built this country 


for free... and are depicted as lazy. 



Slaves did all of the field work, 



building, nursing, cleaning, cooking, 



etc., yet, they are depicted as 



lethargic, sleeping the day away, 



and/or lazy... really?



Racism was condoned and intrinsic to the cartoon. It 


cannot be denied that the cartoons contained images that 


are completely unacceptable. The message is that only 


music can energize African Americans. 



There has to be a special place reserved in hell 


for those who could stoop so low.

Weak people are notorious for pointing out the flaws in 

others. This takes the attention off of their own

 shortcomings, so they think. They will sometimes go out 

of their way to bring people down to make themselves 

feel superior. They want a sense of control. They feed off 

of making people feel as low as they do. It makes them 

not feel as insignificant.

Some only feel worthy when they make others feel 

worse. Insecure people have been known to feel so small 

that they try much harder than needed to assume some sort 

of dominance. People will ofttimes refuse to acknowledge 

their self loathing and insecurities, and as a result they 

project their feelings of insignificance on others by 

making remarks that demean, hurt others and put others 

down. In their orbit, it makes them feel superior... it gives 

them greater importance.
After slavery, massive numbers of emancipated Black 

people in the South were unemployed. Racist Southerners 

and white supremacist were afraid of hard-working Black 

people competing for jobs in the paid labor force with 

white men.


In the Compromise of 1877, white people gave up all 


pretenses about integrating Black people into American 


society as full citizens. White democrats and white 


republicans agreed to abandon Reconstruction, let the kkk 


and other racists take control of governments without any 


federal intervention…and the rest is history.


Compromise of 1877 - U.S. Presidents - HISTORY.com


Emancipation benefited white men in control of the new 


industrial capitalist economy—-but Black people getting 


gainful employment did not.


So that brings us to the myth of Black people and 


“laziness”. What were Southern governments going to do 


with all of the unemployed, under-employed and 


disenfranchised Black men that had recently been 


regurgitated out of the beast of the chattel slave economy?


Make up lies as a legal pretense to put Black men back in 


shackles and exploit their labor again. As Douglas 


Blackmon writes in Slavery By Another Name:


(page 15).


Convict leasing was the practice of governments handing 


over state prisoners to work —-basically for free—for 


large companies. Conveniently, just as large corporations 


were taking advantage of economic opportunities that 


arose from continued westward expansion/


industrialization in the South, the continued enslavement 


of Black men through the convict lease system allowed 


for them to fulfill their labor demands through legal 


slavery without actually having to employ the large 


numbers of people that would otherwise be required to 


conduct massive operations like railroad construction and 


maintenance.


Convict lease - Wikipedia- Just like in slavery, white men 


claimed that Black people were lazy because they wanted 


to exploit Black people to work for free labor.

Some have vested interests in preserving the status quo.


Their ideas and habits are pretty stubborn. Their deeply 


rooted beliefs are not easily abandoned. 


Systems are notorious for resisting change; although, 


historical lies have caused unspeakable suffering, untold 


damage and in some cases, millions of deaths. Some will 


not face the truth, but stick to and live what they know to 


be lies. 


Historical lies have and can distort how we think about 


virtually everything. It's important that we do not forget 


these deliberately selfish and unacceptable acts 


of deception that continue a vicious cycle of animosity, 


ugliness, warped justice and racism. 


For all our sakes... let us be honest about our authentic, 


our true, our uncorrupted diverse historical events. 


Without the truth, future generations may be tempted to 


to add insult to injury by telling more lies to cover and


 color all of the other generational lies up. 


When the truth is told, we all are benefited. It is 


undeniable that telling the truth makes history remarkable. 


Truth is the foundation for determining the quality and 


condition of our lives. It is a good investment to make in 


our lives and the lives of future generations.

Why does the American history resonate so widely? 


The way we understand our history 


shapes who we are.

The degree to which we deviate from the truth, reality and 


existence, and more specifically the path and way of 


 truth, will determine the quality, condition and degree 


to which we experience confusion, suffering and chaos in


our lives.

Many Europeans assumed Africa's history was not 


relevant. They argued that Africans were inferior to 


Europeans and needed to be civilized and converted to 


Christanity. Europeans believed that colonizing was a way 


for them to do God's work. Not all Europeans believed 


this.


According to our fact finding explorations, Africans 


were by no stretch of the imagination inferior to 


Europe. The Europeans used these notions to justify 


slavery. The reality, however, was quite different. 


As one Iraqi archaeologist put it: 


"No history, no culture, no past."



If we don’t remember where we came from, how can we 


aspire to continuously improve? 

When We Forget History,



We Forget Our Values.

Africa is the cradle of the human race. 

Millions of years ago, human life started in Africa, the 


motherland.

According to Wikipedia encyclopedia, the 


paleoanthropological site self-proclaimed as the Cradle of 


Humankind is located about 50 km (31 mi) northwest of 


Johannesburg, South Africa, in the Gauteng province.


Declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1999, the 


site currently occupies 47,000 hectares (180 sq mi) and 


contains a complex of limestone caves.


The registered name of the site in the list of World 


Heritage sites is Fossil Hominid Sites of South Africa.


According to existing archaeological and fossil evidence, 


however, the Cradle of Humankind is the Afar Triangle in 


East Africa, which is often referred to as the Cradle of 


Humanity.

The Sterkfontein Caves were the site of the discovery of a 


2.3-million-year-old fossil Australopithecus africanus 


(nicknamed "Mrs. Ples"), found in 1947 by Robert Broom 


and John T. Robinson. The find helped corroborate the 


1924 discovery of the juvenile Australopithecus africanus 


skull known as the "Taung Child", by Raymond Dart, at 


Taung in the North West Province of South Africa, where 


excavations still continue.


Nearby, but not in the site, the Rising Star Cave system 


contains the Dinaledi Chamber (chamber of stars), in 


which were discovered fifteen fossil skeletons of an 


extinct species of hominin, provisionally named Homo 


naledi.


Sterkfontein alone has produced more than a third of early 


hominid fossils ever found prior to 2010. The Dinaledi 


Chamber contains over 1,500 H. naledi fossils, the most 


extensive discovery of a single hominid species ever 


found in Africa.


The thief comes only to steal



and kill and destroy!


Satan conceals truth, is


manipulative


and targets the mind.


His weapon: Lies!


His purpose: To make people


ignorant of who they are and Whose


they are... where they came from and


what they came from.

Satan is very dangerous and divisive.


He prospers through division.


Throughout history he has been


known to pit people against each other


and make them maim and/or kill each


other. He uses subtle methods to stir


up hatred, animosity and insanity. He


may even flip the script and have


people believing his victim is crazy.



Let us not forget:


Jesus said in John 8:44, "Satan was a


 murderer from the beginning, not


holding the truth. When he lies, he


speaks his native language, for he is a


liar and the father of lies".



Satan and his troops are out to mislead; and to persuade


the willing soul to believe in something that is not true.


Satan would like to keep strong minds weak and docile


while pretending to do the opposite. He is the master of 


disguise. He deceives, controls, oppresses and destroys


humanity in subtle ways and can appear in many different


forms... even innocently.


Satan wants to alter, sicken and/or kill the mind, body and


soul.

Satan has been notorious for trying to


deceive and hide Divine truth from


mankind.


Black history is the history



of enslavement, African



history is the history of



humanity.


Why Africana History? 


by Dr. John Henrik Clarke


Africa and its people are the most written about and the least understood of all of the world's people. This condition started in the 15th and the 16th centuries with the beginning of the slave trade system. The Europeans not only colonialized most of the world, they began to colonialize information about the world and its people. In order to do this, they had to forget, or pretend to forget, all they had previously known abut the Africans. They were not meeting them for the first time; there had been another meeting during Greek and Roman times. At that time they complemented each other. The African, Clitus Niger, King of Bactria, was also a cavalry commander for Alexander the Great. Most of the Greeks' thinking was influenced by this contact with the Africans. The people and the cultures of what is known as Africa are older than the word "Africa." According to most records, old and new, Africans are the oldest people on the face of the earth. The people now called Africans not only influenced the Greeks and the Romans, they influenced the early world before there was a place called Europe.


When the early Europeans first met Africans, at the crossroads of history, it was a respectful meeting and the Africans were not slaves. Their nations were old before Europe was born. In this period of history, what was to be later known as "Africa" was an unknown place to the people who would someday be called, "Europeans." Only the people of some of the Mediterranean Islands and a few states of what would become the Greek and Roman areas knew of parts of North Africa, and that was a land of mystery. After the rise and decline of Greek civilization and the Roman destruction of the city of Carthage, they made the conquered territories into a province which they called Africa, a word derived from "afri" and the name of a group of people about whom little is known. At first the word applied only to the Roman colonies in North Africa. There was a time when all dark-skinned people were called Ethiopians, for the Greeks referred to Africa as, "The Land Of The Burnt-Face People."


If Africa, in general, is a man-made mystery, Egypt, in particular, is a bigger one. There has long been an attempt on the part of some European "scholars" to deny that Egypt was a part of Africa. To do this they had to ignore the great masterpieces on Egyptian history written by European writers such as, Ancient Egypt. Light of the World, Vols. I & II, and a whole school of European thought that placed Egypt in proper focus in relationship to the rest of Africa.

The distorters of African history also had to ignore the fact that the people of the ancient land which would later be called Egypt, never called their country by that name. It was called, Ta-Merry or Kampt and sometimes Kemet or Sais. The ancient Hebrews called it Mizrain. Later the Moslem Arabs used the same term but later discarded it. Both the Greeks and the Romans referred to the country as the "Pearl Of The Nile." The Greeks gave it the simple name, Aegyptcus. Thus the word we know as Egypt is of Greek Origin. Until recent times most Western scholars have been reluctant to call attention to the fact that the Nile River is 4,000 miles long. It starts in the south, in the heart of Africa, and flows to the north. It was the world's first cultural highway. Thus Egypt was a composite of many African cultures. In his article, "The Lost Pharaohs of Nubia," Professor Bruce Williams infers that the nations in the South could be older than Egypt. This information is not new. When rebel European scholars were saying this 100 years ago, and proving it, they were not taken seriously.


It is unfortunate that so much of the history of Africa has been written by conquerors, foreigners, missionaries and adventurers. The Egyptians left the best record of their history written by local writers. It was not until near the end of the 18th century when a few European scholars learned to decipher their writing that this was understood.


The Greek traveler, Herodotus, was in Africa about 450 B.C. His eyewitness account is still a revelation. He witnessed African civilization in decline and partly in ruins, after many invasions. However, he could still see the indications of the greatness that it had been. In this period in history, the Nile Valley civilization of Africa had already brought forth two "Golden Ages" of achievement and had left its mark for all the world to see.


Slavery and colonialism strained, but did not completely break, the cultural umbilical cord between the Africans in Africa and those who, by forced migration, now live in what is called the Western World. A small group of African-American and Caribbean writers, teachers and preachers, collectively developed the basis of what would be an African Consciousness movement over 100 years ago. Their concern was with African, in general, Egypt and Ethiopia, and what we now call the Nile Valley.

Satan's goal is to: steal, kill, destroy, confuse, deceive, 


control and lord over people, shorten lifespans, weaken 


minds (while pretending to do the opposite), poison what 


people eat, drink, breathe and wear. He uses fear as a 


weapon. He would have others toil while only he and his 


clan prospers. Satan pits people against each other and 


tries to control all aspects of our lives. 


Satan is an instigator, he stirs hatred and animosity 


(making people hate themselves and their neighbors).


 Satan's ideal is to keep people financially enslaved and in 


debt. He is an accuser, he accuses others of crimes while 


presenting a different story via the invisible realm of the  


air. Because Satan is the prince of the power of the air 


(Ephesians 2:2)... he can broadcast his lies and character 


assassinations to the masses... covering massive territory 


with one fatal swoop.


Satan is very divisive, he wants to lead people to the point 


of self-destruction (making people live in fear and anger). 


He wants to keep us from knowing who we are and 


Whose we are by way of secrecy and ignorance. He is 


notorious for recruiting people to carry out his plans. 


Satan does not want us to know what he has done to 


humanity or find out that we are one... we are equal in the 


sight of God. 


He endeavors to scrutinize, tear people down, 


tempt, confuse and discourage his target in an effort 


to cause misery, vexation, sorrow, doubt and faithlessness. 


Satan wants nothing more than to enter certain areas of 


our lives and render us ineffective for the Kingdom of 


God. Satan wants us to feel unworthy to lift our hands to 


praise God or even lift up God's Word! He works on the 


mind in such a way as to induce a state of mental passivity.


Satan is so envious and malicious that he will leave no 


stone unturned in his attempts to tear people down and rob 


them of their peace in God and place in history. 

Has our world become a place where a convincing or 


deceptive lie is more valued and welcome than the truth? 



Why are there so many profound and twisted


 contradictions in U.S. History textbooks?



Why do U.S. History text books deliberately distort and/or 


trade accuracy and then force feed these inaccurate 


narratives to the history curriculum?



Are U.S. History textbooks revised or manipulated 


to erase sinful acts and puff up people in a way they 


would want others to perceive them to be?



Why do U.S. History textbooks miseducate people with 


grossly inaccurate perceptions and serious lapses?


 

Why are some of the most shockingly appalling aspects of 


slavery, i.e., the brutality, inhumanity, aggressively racist 


mistreatment and unparalleled exploitation and 


enslavement of black peoplthroughout history been 


omitted? 



Why? 



The life-blood of courageous black men and women is 


soaked in the soil they fought to save; yet, history has 


either erased, revised or forgotten to include African 


Americans from all significant events of the world... while 


making the white race appear more relevant? 

 



Why?




Why are there so many missing chapters of history? 


History is overflowing with inaccuracies and omissions. 


There are fabrications, perjuries, deception and outright 


lies that have reached epidemic proportions threatening 


the very foundations of our society, corrupting our civil 


discourse and distorting our politics. Many of these


 contradictions are so tremendously vast... they 


are virtually inconceivable. 


These false accounts of history have hidden the brutality 


slaves encountered. There was forced slave labor, forced 


sexual acts with enslaved women and men, whippings, 


beatings, shackling slaves, lynchings, mind games, public 


humiliations, buck breakings, sodomizing men and


 monopolizing information. 


Were these enormously false narratives carried out in 


order to paint a picture that is not indicative of who they 


really were? 


Were these lies told in order to advance certain people?


These despicable acts against humanity have adversely


 affected scores of people. 

Rather than feeling robbed or


seeking truth, some people form and 


cling to false beliefs about African 


Americans despite overwhelming 


evidence that confirms what they 


already know or would rather not hear.

Rather than search for information that will either 


confirm or give a different perspective about 


African Americans... some would rather ignore contrary 


information and seek out or develop elaborate 


rationalizations based on misinformation that supports 


what they want to believe; although, the information is 


faulty to the core.
