For American Black Folks: White People Were Slaves Of Black PeopleIn addition to the word "slave" coming from the Slavs of Europe, which tells us white people were enslaving each other, white people were also slaves of Africans and of other Asians during various periods of time before Africans were the slaves of white folks in America and in the Caribbean. White slavery lasted much longer than plain obvious slavery in America. White and Black slavery still exists on most levels of existence. Furthermore, white people were also fighting in armies that put white people into slavery. They are still doing it today.
Also, white people betrayed whites and sold other whites into slavery. (1) They are still doing it today. White people are in no ways more united than black people based on skin color. They are united in sickness not in health. They are united based on money, greed and power and they know the black and white skin color dichotomy is an easy obvious weapon/tool to take advantage of, whereas we need to embrace our blackness and use it as a weapon/tool. Just for equal measure, historical accounts also reveal most people on the planet have been enslaved at some point during the past 5,000 years. Many of these same people have themselves enslaved others. Pretty much everybody's recent ancestry includes both sides of slavery.
Saracen Was Another Word For MoslemThe word "Saracen" is a term loosely used by medieval writers to describe Moslems, especially those who fought against the Christians and Crusades. It enough for now to simply understand who Saracen is being applied to in general when encountering this word in historical accounts as is certain to happen to the Initiate. Before now and without knowing and having never looked it up, I believed Saracen referred to a group in Greece or Rome or one of their territories. (2)
ConclusionsDespite the contradictory philosophies of Muhammad the Islamist, which on one hand say do not discriminate against people based on color, on the other hand says it is okay to actively and forcibly discriminate based on religion. This is the same philosophy as many other religions.
Religion By Any Name Has The Same Deadly Affect On Africans1. Christianity in all its forms is the religion of white folks. (This includes, Mormons, Seventh Day Adventists, Jehovah Witnesses, etc.,)
Strangely enough, many blacks who are Catholic seem to forget they are Christians. Same is true of blacks who have slightly Africanized their Christianity under sleep-inducting titles such as African Methodist, African Episcopal, etc.
For a brief moment I choose to focus on those of us who continue to flock to mega-churches for the mega-ness. They are like hogs gorging on candy corn. They have forgotten those who feed them are tricking them with treats. We are treating religious philosophies as if we're hearing something glorious when it should sound scary to us and have us running from being led to slaughter after slaughter unable to protect mother, father, son or daughter - all because of this major defect in logic called religion.
Jesus will always be Jesus no matter what color we make him and no matter how much we love everybody the preacher proclaims. Jesus is a hit man for the hueless and clueless. 2. Judaism in all its forms is the religion of lighter Semites. 3. Islam in all its forms is the religion of darker Semites. There is no need to mention other religions. The pattern is clear. If a religion favors loss of originating African identity and other components of our strength, it must reviewed in a more mature light and discarded. Switch to slow motion replay in your logic and review the details of your belief speculations regarding religion. How can a religion be healthy if it holds you, me and baby in disfavor and nowhere in the ranks of divinity?
It is unrealistic to think followers of religions that teach you, your life is less than others, that those same followers will think black lives matter. No, do not pass Go directly to...
We don't need anyone's respect for our lives.
We need dignity for our own divinity. That's what matters. It's one thing to protest from a position of strength of strategy and an entirely different same ole' thing to keep protesting from the weakest point of strategy - asking - and doing so without an escalating action plan to ensure you only have to say it once.
...And as we reminisce on happiness promised by religious logic that sounds so universally sweet, that the need to feel satiated has overruled the need to stop being slayed. Being cursed by the God to whom we pray has become so okay, we still make up reasons why very little in the way of nutritious has never made its way, out of scripture and into practice, to help Africans, wherever we exist, in varying degrees of blackness and compliant madness. Based on scripture we were enslaved. Based on scripture we choose to remain that way. Just walk away and thank the Lord of Lords for showing you the way out today.
