From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. (Acts 17:26)
In my last article Egypt: Dwelling In the Pyramid of Ham, I dealt with Whites treatment of the ancient Egyptians and how they are depicted as being White particularly in regards to movies. I made reference to Ridley Scott’s upcoming movie Exodus: God’s and Kings which has already engendered controversy due to the casting of the main characters as Whites and the slaves, servants and thieves as non-whites. However, the visual depiction of ancient societies particularly biblical characters as Caucasians is not a phenomenon of Ridley Scott’s aforementioned movie. It is just the norm for anything coming out of Hollywood whether it be from a secular or Christian perspective. Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ, Mark Burnett and Roma Downey’s The Son of God, Darren Aronofsky and Ari Handel’s Noah are current examples of movies that whitewash what was a melanin world.
Interestingly, the Old testament is a book which if you read carefully is a collection of writings chronicling the lives of people and nations of color. The reason I begin with a discussion about Egypt is because no nation figures as prominently in the lives of the ancient Hebrews or Israel as does Egypt and secondarily the Cushites. Whereas supposed scholars have gone out of their way to remove the melanin or Blackness from Egypt, they generally agree that the Cushites were Blacks. But, if the Cushites or Ethiopians as they were also referred to in antiquity were Black, then it follows that the ancient Egyptians were Black as well. Why is this? It is not because the bible goes out of its way to describe people, because it does not. It is because when the sons of Noah are being described Cush and Egypt are described as brothers and sons of Ham.
It does not take a genius to figure out that brothers generally look alike if they have the same parents. Therefore, if Cush was universally known as Black, then it follows that his brother Mizraim or Egypt would be Black also. The many artifacts and statuary of ancient Egypt and even the Sudan of the Nubians corroborates the book of Genesis. It is from Cush that Nimrod his son noted as a mighty hunter before the Lord (Genesis 10:9) built the early kingdoms of Babel in the land of Shinar (gasp!) yes not in Africa where White antiquarians fix all Black people but in Mesopotamia which some say is modern day Iraq. Nimrod also built the ancient city of Nineveh in Assyria, once again not in Africa. It is axiomatic that if Nimrod built these cities he took his equally Black family members with him to settle these places.
Another people the Israelites had conflict with from time to time were the Philistines who were related to Mizraim via his son Casluhim, making them Black as well. Canaan was the last mentioned son of Ham and of course their dealings with the Israelites were well documented. Canaan was the father of Sidon also known as the Phoenicians and their place of settlement was known to be along the Mediterranean coast between Tyre and Beirut in what is now Lebanon. Once again you have a Black nation not located in Africa proper as we know it today.
Throughout the bible the Israelites have skirmishes, fights, times of oppression and times of victories with the sons of Ham. The very people who are always doing movies and documentaries about biblical characters would do well to read the bible they base their movies on. When God calls Abraham, he calls him to leave his native land of Ur of Chaldeans which it is stated was located in Southern Babylon now halfway between Baghdad and the Southern Gulf. Abraham, therefore was living in a place founded by Nimrod son of Cush. The issues Israelites had with the sons of Ham unlike today would have had little to do with skin color as they would have been of the same. The issues Israel had with other nations always had to do with them worshipping and going after foreign gods who did not call them or deliver them from the hands of their enemies.
When God created Adam it is apparent that he created him with melanin from at least a very dark brown color to Black. From there all other men would come as He placed within the Black race the phenotype for all people. This can be noted by simple observation of people In Africa and around the world which I did many years ago. The common denominator of all indigenous people the world over is melanin for some from very dark to light brown. Some of the Blackest people I have seen are from the country of India with many of them having what is termed a “Caucasoid phenotype”. It demonstrates day in and day out that that having Black skin is not accidental or some kind of aberration but was well thought out in the mind of God with a most basic purpose of protecting the skin from being damaged by the sun.
On the contrary, it is an aberration to have White skin as it does not protect from the damaging rays of the sun without some sort of sunscreen. It is the reason pale people are prone to skin cancer. Thus, white people are not progenitors of any race of people but are derived from a Black people and one need only find the group which fits their phenotype.
This week the American people were given evidence that people in government will deliberately lie and obfuscate the truth in order to further an agenda. This not so shocker came in the form of Jonathan Gruber an architect of the Affordable Care Act also known as Obamacare. Forbes.com quote him as saying, “The stupidity of the American voter made it important for him and the democrats to hide Obamacare’s true cost from the public.” Jonathan Gruber’s comment is indicative of how the American people are treated at large regarding history.
People have agenda’s and they do not care if they have to lie, obfuscate, muddy the waters or whatever to accomplish it and it is no less with those areas which are spiritual. The obfuscating of Blacks role in history may be rooted in some ancient antagonisms of Blacks and Whites in times past but it is validated in the spirit world. It seems that the ability of both man and the principalities and powers to sustain where there are is dependent upon Blacks being reviled and deleted from the annals of history even if the ones they delete have little or nothing to do with their future usurpation. But as Jonathan Gruber has shown the stupidity of some run deep and it is all that is needed sometimes to pull off the trickiest of cons.
