What Is In A Name? The Sub-Saharan Obfuscation Of The Identity of Black People

"We Hold The Key To The World's Destiny"
(from the song Flowers by the Emotions)
 
It seems as though whenever I think I'm done posting on this blog for a sustained period of time something else sparks my interest and thus here I am once again.  I have to admit there were areas that I left unaddressed or partially covered that I am going to try to remedy in the next few posts.  The question of "what is in a name?" came to me as I was viewing some medieval artwork on this tumblr page medievalpoc (POC meaning people of color).  This site is interesting because it posts artwork from late antiquity through the 1800's of people of color but most specifically of Black/African people some of who could be in my estimation Japhetic Black people.  What is fascinating about the site is that apparently it causes quite a bit of mental disturbance for some white people who have been a product of the miseducation of Anglo people of America who did not know Black people existed in Medieval times in Europe.  Apparently the host of the site receives quite a few snarky comments of disbelief or accusations of historical revisionism.
 
There is this one person that appears over and over in numerous works of art called Saint Maurice. I will include a picture of him below. I decided to find out some more information about him and just clicking on a wiki page they described his origin  as Sub-Saharan African even though it states he was born around 250AD in Thebes Egypt.  They conclude he is of Sub-Saharan because he has always been depicted as a Black African.  Well, last time I checked Thebes was not below the Sahara so why would he be Sub-Saharan if he was born in Egypt.  Well the implication of whomever submitted the information about Saint Maurice is that no Black African can be native to Egypt even though Egypt is an African country and there were still Black people there in the main as they had not been at this time I am sure completely overrun by Japhetic people and their ensuing mulattoes. But what the heck is Sub-Saharan? According to definition.net it is countries located south of the Sahara desert in contrast to North Africa which is considered part of the Arab world.
 
Therefore, whoever wrote the write up about Saint Maurice was basically saying he was below a desert. No nation or clan just below a desert simply because he was a Black Egyptian.  I have already written an article titled The Sons Of Ham and Egypt: Dwelling In The Pyramid Of Ham so the reader can review it to see how Hamitic people now and in antiquity were a Black people.  It is this faulty nomenclature of this age which aids in obscuring the identity of Black people in the bible.  No where in the bible are any of the nations ever called Sub-Saharan. They are connected to their fathers and to Noah.  Their names such as Elam generally give recognition to who their ancestor were as in the Elamites being the descendants of Elam.  One will find that names are very important in the bible. They tend to have meanings behind them and this is no less true for people who anthropologist and all other ologist would call simply Sub-Saharan.  For example, Yehoshua which is Jesus' Hebrew name according to Strong's concordance means "The Lord Is Salvation." 
 
It is thus inconceivable that the large body of people which inhabit the lower part of the Sahara would have no name connecting them to the biblical patriarchs.  Yet, if one were to do a search for who these people are biblically all one would get is "crickets."  But yet no Black African such as Saint Maurice can be Egyptian because to do that would mean admitting that the original native Egyptians were Black and this would ruin the White historical narrative of a White or Caucasian Egypt. Therefore, if Saint Maurice was not a son of Ham specifically Mizraim who was he? He surely was not a son of Japheth. Your average White/Anglo historian would surely never admit he was a son of Shem or an Israelite because that is supposed to be covered by the white Azkenazi Jews of whom Askenaz was also a son of Japheth.
 
Another name used to describe the large body of people below the Sahara and West Africa is Bantu.  But if one were to look up the meaning of Bantu it refers to a group of languages spoken in Central and Southern Africa. It doesn't on the face give much of a clue as to who the people are of this area and where they came from.  There is often mention of a great Bantu migration but not much information as to why or how far away and long they had been migrating.  However, if anyone of Black American descent or "Sub-Saharan" location assert a connection to ancient Egypt they would be swiftly cut down as being Afro-centrist and trying to appropriate another people's history. Thus, for all purposes that leaves all Black people as being either aliens from another planet or as many an internet commenter would have it as one step above primates of the animal kingdom as they have no relation to the societies of antiquity let alone "gasp!" medieval Europe.
 
However, it is intriguing though that science via dna can supposedly come up with a priestly Cohen modal haplotype based on certain Ashkenazi Jews who are supposed to be of the Levite tribe but can never figure out who Negro/Negroid/Bantu people are biblically, but I will brush over that issue in the next article.  The whole situation is a sad elaborate slight of hand by people in power who know better in the natural and spiritual world but as my sub-heading states, "We (Some Black Americans) are the key to the World's Destiny."  I wonder if they knew how prophetic that statement was when they inserted in the song on their album released May 11, 1976.  It is only what I have been saying this whole blog except in another way. One more time "let's give it up for the Baby-Boomers."  You can now see why the denigration of Black people in music had to happen. Below is a video of the song.  It should be played repeatedly because the harmony is oh so nice and a graphic of Saint Maurice and pictures.

This is supposed to be one of the representations of Saint Maurice. It looks like he is a knight as I don't imagine this would be Roman attire during the time he lived. Alternatively it could of been a native European Black person who was a knight. it's date is circa 1520-25.

I recently went to the Louvre on Sunday and came across this interesting statue. Since they were closing I blitzed past it and was unable to decipher the words on the plaque. Do you happen to know who this is a statue of? Who made it and its historical background?

Readers?
Someone saw this in the Louvre. I just think it is a beautiful statue.
He looks like Black royalty somebody.

It should be noticed that some of the disciples are represented with
a straight texture of hair. This could be the Black Japhetic people from
Greece or Rome represented in the dna of the Coptic people
 
 
As can be seen from this Psalter, it was consistent with biblical
history that it was thought the Chaldeans and Hebrews were Black.
They are both melanated but of different nations.

This a removed portrait of Amenhotep III from his tomb. Note the reddish brown color and afro like hair. He makes me think of what Joseph could of
have looked like.
