The Origin of the Name "Africa"

Now I am sure that there will be some who will read the title of my 2013 interview, “The African Origin of Ancient Sumerian Civilization: My Q&A with Hermel Hermstein” and say that it is a mistake for me to make a distinction in classification between Africa and an ancient Black civilization located in a region that many call “The Middle East.”

They will argue that the land designations perpetuate a divisive geopolitical construct fomented by white propagandists posing as credible historians of high academic integrity. These historical revisionists that authentic Black scholars have engaged in intellectual combat have tried to divorce Black men and women from their ancient cultural legacy. I have been in perfect solidarity with critical observers who have made this point for years. You will find that I have made this formal acknowledgment in my older writings.

I am intimately aware of the fact that in ancient times, there was no geographical distinction between what we now know as “Africa” and the so-called “ Middle East,” as they were both part of a vast Black empire. Over 2000 years ago the Greek historian and philosopher Strabo informed us that Ethiopia—which was known as Kush—included the body of land that currently occupies the Arabian peninsula. He says this in his book The Geography: Book One, Chapter 2.

A peninsula is a body of land that is surrounded by water on three sides while attached to a larger landmass. The Arabian peninsula is clearly attached to Africa. Although culturally diverse, both Africa and the so-called “Middle East,” were home to Black people who look no different from those walking the streets of Crenshaw, Los Angeles or Flatbush, Brooklyn today.

Nevertheless, it should be duly noted that although the DESIGNATION of “Middle East” is a cultural innovation of imperialist colonizers, the same is the case with the designation of The Motherland as “Africa.” The men and women of ancient Ta Seti, Kemet, Sumer, or even the Nok people of West “Africa” did not refer to themselves as “Africans” based on the historical records handed down to us through the ages.

They appear to have viewed themselves as separate, autonomous NATIONS that engaged one another in trade and shared similar cultural ideas. However, if there was a uniform, continental name that these ancient Blacks used to identify one another, it certainly was not “African,” for that too is a later construct.

It would be of great benefit to the reader if we briefly explored the origin of the name “Africa.” Some who qualify themselves as credible historians have said that the etymological root for the name “Africa” comes from the name Scipio Africanus, the Roman general who defeated Hannibal the Great of Carthage at the end of the second Punic War. This is emphatically INCORRECT.

This error is easily identified by the fact that “Scipio Africanus” was born as Publius Cornelius Scipio. You can confirm this for yourself by consulting Richard A Gabriel’s book Scipio Africanus: Rome’s Greatest General, among other works. I don’t care how confident or how charismatic a man sounds. You should not take his scholarship too seriously unless his work has been reviewed and qualified by his peers. I say this because you will not have a barometer, a reliable standard to go by, if you are a new student who is trying to determine who is actually qualified to speak on subject matter that is of importance to you.

Some people mean well and add value, but are not strong in certain areas of study. Others are losers in real life and just want to be seen and have followers. The thought that you will eventually become well-learned and not rely on them for information is a scary thought that haunts them day and night. It’s one thing for a guy to upload a video to YouTube where he talks loud, sounding arrogant and intentionally disrespectful. However, being well-learned and properly informed doesn’t necessarily entail those qualities. In most cases, it actually defies them. 

Read more books, and watch less lectures. Reading structures your mind for critical thinking in ways that even the best lectures cannot. But even books, blogs, and journals are secondary. Go inside of yourself for the big answers while using external tools for assistance.  Old family members who are eager to share family history with you are invaluable human resources for those seeking knowledge of SELF. If you still have such people in your life and can reach them, then you are blessed. No one that I have taught follows me. They’re too busy living life, finding their own voice and teaching in their own unique ways based on the new understanding they've acquired.

National identity has importance. Before any group of people can have a national identity that is clear, strong, and vibrant, they must share the same core ideas and values. A large group of people, whether they are a secret society, a street gang, or a nation, are bound together by common core values. The medium in which these values are primarily preserved is through language which serves as a bedrock for culture. The people of France are called “French” based on the language that they speak. The people of China are identified as “Chinese” based on the fact that they speak a mother tongue that reinforces their collective psychology for the preservation of common values. For them, this language is called “Chinese.”

To the brothers and sisters who say that the word “Moor” originally came from white Europeans I ask you what was the language spoken by the ancient people who occupied modern day Burkina Faso and its neighboring regions? You do understand that there were several Moors who Gentrified Europe during the medieval period who were not Moroccan, and were in fact from other parts of what we call West Africa, right? You do know that many of these Moors were not actually Islamic but gave off an Islamic, and in some cases, a Christian veneer for both political and economic reasons, right?

To appreciate what I’m getting at you have to have an internal understanding of culture that is not always transmitted through books, blogs and videos. And no, I’ve NEVER been a follower of Noble Drew Ali or the Moorish Science Temple. However, I have had a strong  internal  connection with the Moorish legacy of old Europe before I was even reading and writing down my own thoughts. That legacy is a part of me. Fuck all of your half-assed rhetoric. Ive digressed. Let’s progress together by getting back on topic.

Scipio was only given the nickname “Africanus” after he defeated Hannibal Barca. The name “Africa” is actually based on the the Romanization of the Numidian “Afri” people. They were just one of the clans that the ancient Romans encountered during their sojourns into ancient Numidia, which is not to be confused with ancient Nubia.

The Afri lived in, and around, ancient Carthage. The Romans were so in awe of Hannibal’s military prowess that they named their own general Scipio “Africanus.” For the Romans, the name had become synonymous with the fierce Afri warriors that they took great pride in defeating by the skin of their teeth. In European literature Scipio is referred to as “The Roman Hannibal.” This strongly suggests that his only historical relevance arises out of the fact that he defeated Hannibal the Great to end the second Punic War.

Scipio is only important to the extent that his legacy is linked to Hannibal’s. The ancient Romans were telling the world that their general was so brave and so calculating that he might as well be an Africanus, or what we would now call an “African.” The word “African” is the Anglicized version of the Latinized word “Africanus” which was originally derived from the Afri people who lived in and around Carthage.

Africa was NOT named after a Roman general. It was named after a relatively small native clan who lived in the region of Carthage who called themselves Afri. The decision to identify the entire continent based on the name for these local people was made by European colonizers. No doubt. But that’s different from saying that the name originated with Europeans. If Chinese colonizers decided to rename the entire continent “GHANAlù” tomorrow it doesn’t mean that the name “GHANA” came from them. It means that they merely added their suffix to the indigenous name of a historically localized people and applied that name to an entire continent.

Nevertheless, we need to keep in mind that Carthage (now a part of Tunisia) is just one small region within the vast continent that the world now calls “Africa.” Although I could be wrong, I seriously doubt that the Zulus of 3000 B.C.E. referred to themselves as “Afri” while living at least 4,000 miles South of North Africa where the Afri resided. The Sumerians, who were Black, did not call themselves Afri either. Furthermore, if we look at Iraq on a map, an argument can be made that it is just as much a part of East Africa as it is Western Asia as far as geography goes. Sumer was located in what is today known as Iraq. This leads to other questions about land designation that I, and/or another researcher, may choose to explore at a later time. 

In the meantime, please understand that when I make reference to the “African origin” of ancient Sumer I am only using a contemporary term (that term being “African”) that is commonly understood and recognized by even the most casual readers of my 2013 interview. I wholly acknowledge the land now designated as “Africa” to be the ethno-cultural starting point for ancient Sumerian civilization, which thrived thousands of years before Black men and women identified themselves as “African” through any continental consensus.

As far as I am aware, there is no ancient written record or text that proves that Black men and women throughout the continent decided to uniformly identify themselves as “Africans” before the continent was carved up and divided among its European invaders. This is because they all had national identities rooted in culture and reinforced by language. Only these preserved written records—provided that they even exist—will  serve as verifiable sources of reference in any assertions to the contrary. Then again, would these records even be written in a mother language that is understood, authenticated, and venerated by all of the nations it pertains to? At the moment, I do not have a definitive answer to this question.

Communication is most effective when we use words and terms that can be easily identified and codified by those who receive our message. We should share information with our audience that will expand its scope of understanding. Still we can only do that after we’ve gotten our audience’s attention by using words and concepts that they are already familiar with. In other words, you must reach people where they are at before you take them where they’re striving to go. With that understanding, I decided to title my offering “The African Origins of Ancient Sumerian Civilization.”

It’s unfortunate that many Black people assume that various words come from Europeans just because they cannot trace the origin of those words back to a stellae from ancient Kemet. Kemet was beautiful. It was amazing. In many ways it was the crystallization of traditional African values. However there are many answers to the question of who you are that cannot be found there. As a result, the search continues: throughout the continent, throughout the globe, throughout the solar system and the universe. You have no beginning or ending. Your soul’s seed occupies a moment that knows no circumference, hence that moment is eternal and so are you.

Ras Joseph Spice and The Singers & Players of Instruments present...Green Trees

Nearly 40 years ago my dad and his band, Singers & Players of Instruments (Psalm 87:7), came together to express a common vision through the magnanimous gift of reggae music.

The 9 songs recorded before my birth included contributions from the legendary saxophonist, Roland Alphonso of The Skatalites and extraordinary lead vocalist Ras Joseph Spice. The music that they made alongside writer, Natty B, and bass guitarist and arranger, Horace Finlater, was thought to be lost forever. However, it has been rediscovered and remastered for the world’s listening pleasure.

When my dad Horace shared the news with me earlier this week I was excited, and that feeling has only intensified. At a time when the world needs more music that conveys beauty through a resounding message of hope and good will, these 9 jewels were recorded in the 1970s, but made for 2016. What would seem to be late to some, is actually right on time.

I’m sharing one of the tracks entitled “Green Trees” with you below via a video I put together myself. I heard the song for the very first time that I can recall, on Tuesday (It was probably playing in the house when I was a very young child and I just don’t remember). There is more music and information to come. In the meantime, let me know what you think of the song. My email address is Peace.

A.A. Rashid Presents: The Blackest Bible You Never Seen

If 24 hours separates an intellectual paradise from an ecclesiastical purgatory, then The Blackest Bible You Never Seen is a Day Up from hell.

Heaven is a relative state of mind, and in his latest E-Lecture the Qabala god, A.A. Rashid, escorts his viewing audience through the pearly gates of understanding with contagious passion and ideological conviction.

“What is the African American experience regarding his initiation?” Rashid rhetorically asks his audience during his July 11th  lecture in Houston, Texas. “Where does he go to become a man? Every other culture in the world has an initiation. You go to the Twa people—who are colloquially called the pygmies—they still have a ritual where they initiate the young men for five months.

Do you know what that is? A lot of us can’t even do nothing for two hours straight. You tell someone to sit down and read for two hours straight, or turn your phone off and just shut up, a lot of people would have a problem with that…What is the culture of the African American? Where are our initiations? The African American experience is profound. You were manufactured as part of a commercial construct. It is very interesting that you are still here existing with pride.”

In this video presentation Rashid extrapolates on one of his most consistent messages to his growing following in recent years, which is that all of the ancient expressions of collective cultural psychology—which many of us call religions—can address the inherent needs of Africans throughout the diaspora. According to Rashid, this requires that the signs and symbols of these philosophical models are processed by the individual so as to ensure collective prosperity in all avenues of human endeavor.   

“How you perceive yourself [determines] your mental health,” says the Red House founder, and Freemason, who advocates joining societies with secrets. “You live in your thoughts. The Blackest Bible You Never Seen requires that you and I challenge every letter, every world, inside the [literary] construct to find the best modalities to use in any religion. You should all participate in learning all religions because it gives you a narrative to deal with every single culture in the world.”

Rashid is an interesting figure. He is a man, who over the course of his lecturing career, has ubiquitously lived his life in between the pillars of mercy and severity. He has the introverted mental framework of the brooding intellectual and the shaman.  However, he exhibits an uncanny ability to speak to large audiences in the idiom of the street, or the Ivy League lecture hall in an extroverted way.

“The young people are the ones who bring your brother out [to lecture],” says Rashid in front of his lecture podium in Houston. “I have to talk nice, and be nice to the elders, ‘hotep’ them and put on dashikis to get them to pull brother Rashid out. But the young people get it because they can look past all of the vestigial elements because they are strivers. They not hatin’ sitting back waiting for you to make a mistake. They lookin’ to get game so that they can take it and run with it. Young people keep me relevant. I got young people at Ralph Lauren who are designing the stuff these negroes are going to wear for the next three years in our school. There are young people at Apple, designing apps and all that. Brothers and sisters all over the world, Africa, everywhere, who are paying attention to what we are doing. You're an exceptional person if youve ever even heard of me, because there are so many chambers to get to just to get to mine. ” 

Within Rashid’s two extremes there are many mindscapes of hidden potential, which may explain why he is actually expanding in his creative breadth at 40 years of age, a time when many other men are past their artistic prime. Rashid, who told me that he just started rapping about three years ago, has recorded impressive hip hop tracks like “Fard Fila,” and “Randy Savage” while producing imaginative graphic artwork to promote his merchandise and social events.

His latest offering, The Blackest Bible You Never Seen, is a valuable addition to the video library of longtime students, and a formidable introduction for new ones who have grown weary of conspiracy laden narratives and are in search of practical applications for personal empowerment.

To contact A.A. Rashid about obtaining his lectures, music, books, and rare African American cultural memorabilia, you can email him at For further information concerning his work, you can also find him on YouTube through his Red House channel.

The Black Dot Presents: Urban Culture Decoded

This afternoon I was in New Jersey enjoying the weather when I saw young man a few feet ahead of me walking with a pair of Beats By Dre headphones hugging his cranium. However, what he had in his right hand was a one-way ticket Straight Outta the matrix.

“That’s a classic you got there,” I said to the stranger after mildly nudging him out of his self-induced musical hypnosis. He looked at me with a surprised look on his face, not knowing what I was talking about. I clarified by pointing to his copy of the groundbreaking Hip Hop Decoded, authored by The Black Dot. The young man smiled.

“Yeah man, I was a baby when it came out, but it’s right on point for today.” I shook my head and smiled, knowing full well that the young man was just a boy when the book was released in 2005.

The brief exchange exemplifies Dot’s importance –not just as an author—but as a teacher. He is adept at translating the knowledge and experience of his yesterdays so that it is eagerly embraced and practically used by the blossoming  minds of tomorrow. His latest book, Urban Culture Decoded, boldly addresses a myriad of issues critical to their new world.


“I’m not actually out to create a scene with the book, but rather make public ideas people know will work, but are too afraid to propose,” explained The Black Dot in a personal statement issued to Mind Glow Media just hours after my encounter with the youth in New Jersey. “It takes an unapologetic warrior to step in every few generations and change the direction of the country. Urban America is under great threat from itself, yet we have all we need to solve the issues at our disposal.

I’m ultimately attempting to address the elephant in the room that nobody is brave enough to acknowledge. If parents, teachers, policy makers and anyone else in a position of authority can take the time to venture with me into the unconventional, then saving this lost generation will be easier than we expect. But time is pressing; will you give me a chance to have my say?”

Indeed. To order the new book written by one of my teachers,  go directly to his website at

Heavy Rotation: Space-Time Perception, Beauty & Manifesting Your Own Reality

Time is not an illusion. Your awareness of it stems from a modification in your brain’s magnetic field. This adjustment gives rise to time perception through a phenomenon that physicists call  Inertial Frame Dragging (IFD). This is when a stationary mass—which may be a localized body of energy—distorts the fabric of space-time with its rotation. 

Imagine looking at a whirlpool of water in your tub as the water is going down the drain. Think of this water as the equivalent of space, while the empty vacuum at its center would represent the invisible energy that causes the water to spiral around it down the drain. 

IFD also occurs in the frontal lobe of your brain when you engage in intense mental focus. Over 100 years ago esotericist Paschal Beverly Randolph taught the principles of what he called, Volantia, which offers us critical keys for understanding IFD as well as the quantum singularities that they precipitate.

If you would like to hear a musical rendition of what IFD would sound like—if it could be heard—I recommend that you listen to the instrumental for “Brooklyn Babies,” by RZA as BobbyDigital, from beginning to end. I want you to see, hear, and feel what I’m describing in this article instead of just reading a bunch of words on a screen. If you have no clue of what the fuck I’m talking about then I’m just wasting your time. Then again, what is your time really worth if you believe that it is an illusion?

Back in the day when we conducted internet searches on our computers we would see an hour glass on our screens as the requested information was being pulled up. Sometimes you had to wait for a considerable amount of time before your page would load. The hour glass, of course, is a symbolic reference to time.  Through wireless technology, information is being gathered from the internet at increasingly higher speeds. As a result, the web browsing iconography (the hour glass) had to be upgraded to reflect the quantum leap that was being made in our collective space-time reference.

Nowadays, when we conduct our web searches we see a rotating circle appear on our monitors as our desired web pages load up much quicker than they did 15 years ago via dial up. The ring rotating clockwise represents a quantum singularity. A quantum singularity is an energetically charged, yet very localized, portion of space with a powerful gravitational pull. It’s sort of like a fat wet pussy on the verge of orgasm after being eaten, and then beaten, by a blazing bamboo cock.

However a quantum singularity is generated by the intensity of IFD occurring at a high speed of acceleration. This distortion in the fabric of space holds the key to space-time perception and the transference of higher intelligence from the causal plane into your brain through centripetal force. I use the term “space-time” because your ability to see space (height, width and depth) is a prerequisite for your perception of time. Space and time go hand-in-hand.

Over the past week or two, I’ve been getting random visuals of the ancient Kemetic god Khnum that pop in and out of my head. In my visions he has what looks like a powerful rotating black hole in his forehead that emits a bright light.

Khnum is both a water spirit and a creator god whom Egyptologists say molded the bodies of humans into being on a potter’s wheel. The ram-headed Khnum has even been identified as a master of the potter’s wheel. Yesterday, after years of reading about this potter’s wheel, I decided to challenge my own sense of inquisitiveness by getting some information on how a potter’s wheel works. I have provided a YouTube video right below for you to view this.

While watching the video I realized that Khnum’s “potter’s wheel” is really a metaphorical reference to a quantum singularity, a rotating ring, that he generates in his forehead. This “potter’s wheel” may even be the conceptual precursor to the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Cern, Switzerland. Only through contemplating and writing this post have I come to this realization on a conscious level.

Among other things, Khnum is the Kemetyu (so-called ancient Egyptian) cultural reference for the man or woman who is able to manifest the reality of their choice through the willful focus of their mind. Any man or woman who consistently does this can, and should, be identified as a “creator god” since they are molding the reality of their personal choice into being.

                                  Large Hadron Collider

The Khnum man or woman is a “master manifestor” who has the power to hold a vivid vision in their head and make that vision tangible so that others can experience and benefit from it. In order to even begin manifesting anything into existence you must get the rotating disk in your forehead spinning. As the ring begins to pick up speed it generates a centrifugal force that projects outward. To activate mental rotation your consciousness must exist outside of the circle of time.

You can position yourself there through meditation, which has multiple forms besides the Yoga lotus position that many people are familiar with. When I am writing I am literally meditating with a pen or keyboard device in my hand. When I’m in my zone, I am outside the circle of time. The absence of sound—or at the very least—the ability to transcend your conscious awareness of it, is critical to a good meditation.

Time is generated by speech. Space-time perception is a byproduct of language. This is why if you look at various ancient scriptures across the globe, they often speak of creation (which requires the dimension of space-time to exist) coming into existence AFTER the utterance of spoken words.

Time does not exist in the vacuum of outer space because there is no oxygen there. You need oxygen to mold the sounds that give form and structure to the spoken word. If a man places his lips in his woman’s ear and romantically whispers “Honey, I bought you some Nutella,” he is forming those words through the manipulation of his mouth, tongue and throat. When the man’s breath hits the ambient oxygen surrounding he and his woman, the woman hears the oxygen particle’s vibration as a spoken word.  However what makes the sound possible is the oxygen around them. Again, there is no sound in a vacuum because no oxygen is present.

Nevertheless, human perception of time is speeding up, and we can see this when we observe the chronological sequence of communication trends within the construct of popular culture, most notably, social media. On MySpace, people would write a lot on their pages. Facebook is a continuation of that, but to a lesser degree. People share more pictures and videos on Facebook than they do text. With Twitter, the user is only permitted to type a couple of sentences.

With the introduction of Instagram, the central focus became pictures, as opposed to text. Young, curvy women who do not have much to say love Instagram, but so do the men and women who enjoy looking at these women. All of the preceding social media platforms I just named use lots of pictures, but only when Instagram came on the scene did pictures become the MAIN focus. As a writer, I wanted to understand why. To gain understanding, sometimes you have to look beyond the obvious.

The answer is that pictures offer a more direct means of communication that words have never offered the masses of human beings. Words are powerful, but they only have value and meaning to the extent that you can generate the pictures in your mind that correspond with them. This is why the more effective writers use metaphors and similes that are heavy with imagery in their writing. Pictures always convey instant messages to us that completely bypass the construct of time, whereas words may not.

If your mind cannot associate a clear picture with a particular word, then that word has no meaning for you. If you’re like most people, you’ll probably just skip over the word you're reading, but do not understand, instead of getting a dictionary to see what the word means. If the reader does not have a pictorial frame of reference for a word being used in a text, then the meaning that the word carries cannot penetrate the mind of the reader. The meaning is lost.

If pictures allow instant communication and immediate comprehension through images that clearly have a more universal meaning among humans than words do, then why was writing even invented in the first place? What is its intrinsic value? These two questions are rooted in the assumption that writing was intended for mass communication and universal understanding, but it was not. It is not the ideal medium for communication with the masses. It never was.

The Pyramid Text, Kemet's oldest known piece of writing.

    Ancient Manuscript from the University of Timbuktu

Writing was initially invented BY an elite class FOR an elite class to precipitate an exchange of ideas and abstract concepts that could be conceived in the mind, but may not have had a tangible reference point in the objective world of consensus reality. Some people may call this elite class the Illuminati. That’s cool. However, I would be talking about the original Illuminati that was comprised of Black men and women who founded the earliest civilizations and empires on planet Earth. I’m not talking about the Bavarian Illuminati of Adam Weishaupt that some people like to read about in New World Order horror novels passing themselves off as the debriefings of insiders within the global power elite.

Communication that is specifically intended for the masses will revolve almost entirely around pictures, not words. Words are for the movers and shakers of our current world. Besides maybe a few athletes and entertainers, I can’t think of any affluent people who hold power and influence in the world who cannot read AND write effectively. The American movie industry is centered on moving pictures. With few exceptions, Hollywood primarily exists to mentally condition the masses under the guise of entertainment. It’s a Trojan horse for the Trojan man who may be out to screw you.

The most provocative pictures that garner the most interest from both men and women are usually pictures of beautiful women. How many times have you seen a very attractive woman say something on social media that is trivial or just downright stupid, yet she is showered with phony praises and compliments by people in her network? The dumber, or the more banal her commentary is, the more aware the woman is of her effect on her audience. You can see this because her words are always accompanied by her powerful image. The words don’t stand on their own because they can’t. This woman knows that her audience is not responding to her words. They are responding to her image. But her image IS the message, and that message is beauty. Pay attention.

We live in a world that can be very ugly. You have racial injustice, class struggles, gender inequality, homelessness and starvation. As a result, everyone craves for beauty and all that it entails. Beauty reinvigorates the mind and soothes the soul. Short sighted people see beauty as something shallow and trivial but it is VERY important to our lives. This is why intelligent people who have a lot of disposable income will always invest in some form of art. Beauty in all of its forms, in all of its interpretations, is the martial drumbeat behind our decisive march toward a timeless world, where appetite meets desire in between the blink of an eye.

The observable transition from our cultural emphasis on words, to an even greater preoccupation with images, strongly points to the ascendancy of the feminine principle that is rooted in matter, which is therefore visual. In his recent exegesis on the state of the world, Pope Francis urgently stressed the importance of taking care of the earth and its priceless resources. He referred to Earth as a “her” throughout his lengthy address.

While I certainly do not consider the Vatican to be an institution of higher spiritual enlightenment, I think that the Pope’s words are worthy of note, especially when they are examined within the context of this article. The rotating ring that replaced the hour glass icon in your internet browses may very well be a womb ushering the birth of a new global paradigm.  

Yesterday is dead. Tomorrow is a precious curiosity. Today is a gift cloaked in a box decorated with the perceptual ribbons that we call the present. However, this present is only a gift if it is a bridge to a rich and fulfilling future. From my vantage point, that future is a rotating circle full of endless possibility.

The Political Fiction of "White Supremacy" & The Media's Power of Depiction

“The media is the most powerful entity on the earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty, and the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses.”
-          Malcolm X

“White Supremacy” is a political fiction. If it were real, it would not affirm itself so frequently and so aggressively in the absence of a legitimate challenge. But there is a legitimate challenger to the perception of white dominance. It’s called the truth. The system that has commonly been identified as “White Supremacy,” is in truth a malignant inferiority complex which has metastasized within the body politic of minorities across the globe who identify themselves as  white.

The initial symptom for this diagnosis of the White Male Inferiority Complex was the violent suppression of white female sexuality at the onset Europe’s Christian era. White Supremacy is a man with 73 years behind him, flexing his flaccid biceps in the mirror with a prosthetic penis bulging from underneath his speedos.

“White Supremacy” is a media term designed to assume itself into our daily reality through careless repetition. The rusty downstream media calls groups that are Black Supremacist in ideology “Black Separatists” or “Militants” because to identify them as they are would give power to the mere notion of Black Supremacy.

That’s a scary thought for someone who has been shielded from honestly examining their  inferiority complex through several generations of stolen privileges. This sense of inferiority that many whites have may prove to be unfounded, but white America is afraid to find out for certain by relinquishing white privilege.

It goes without saying, that Black America must exercise its unalienable right to self-determination. Whether or not many of us will strive to do so in the United States is something that remains to be seen. What I do know, is that we can no longer afford to be content with these meaningless and petty symbolic victories we go after as a direct response to racial hatred and injustice. Black people in America have already secured the greatest symbolic victory it will ever receive in the election of a Black president who has served the better part of a decade in office.

Eradicating the Confederate flag from public view will do nothing for us. All it does is conceal the identities of potential enemies who might otherwise be out in the open. Besides, the confederate flag is no more of a symbol of institutionalized racism and oppression than the American flag is. Did the Southern Confederacy plot to sabotage Marcus Garvey’s U.N.I.A movement and succeed in doing so? Did they initiate the Tuskegee syphilis experiments that destroyed the lives of numerous Black men? What role did the confederacy play in the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X? The U.S. government orchestrated all of the above.

Let’s not be cowards in our political activism by going after the low-hanging fruit and the vulnerable bully while ignoring the elephant in the room that has historically committed some of the most heinous crimes of racial hatred against Black Americans, post reconstruction era. A pole dancer pulling down the confederate flag is nothing to get excited about. As soon as Black America started asking itself the really important questions after the Charleston South Carolina shooting, the downstream media distracted it with the irrelevant confederate flag “controversy” and many of us fell for it.

By the way, I loved the TV show Dukes of Hazard as a child, especially the car with the confederate flag on it. Maybe media mind control has influenced me and my stance. All jokes aside, I believe that there are more important national issues for Black people to focus on. Besides, the stars and bars were adopted by Freemasonic southerners who stole the iconography from the Blacks who founded ancient Egypt. These southerners took a symbol of resurrection and made it synonymous with racism. But that’s another story for another day.

We can’t just be passionate about our plight in the wake of tragedy.  We have to live our lives in accord with these serious concerns on a year-round basis. Our progeny will depend on it. Economic solidarity is critical. Every Black person in America should be going out of their way to support and promote sustainable Black businesses with mutually beneficial profit motives. We must put our money where our mouths are or die. These words are not written to offend, they are written to inspire our people to ascend. Until we understand the power of words and the purpose of media then we will continue to sing the blues in exchange for cathartic social media fraternizing, which is primarily instigated by the downstream media.

The words in our heads generate images. When we focus intensely on these images we generate spirits, energetic units of intelligence that are mirror reflections of the imagery that brought them into being. Do these spirits assist you in your goals and aspirations? A lot of it depends on the images you focus on, but those images are often conjured up by the words that you entertain in your head and speak out loud to others.

The media’s power lies in its ability to seduce minds through the weaponization of beautiful words and images as a means of methodical persuasion.Those who magnify Venus’ influence on their personal magnetic fields will be granted access to human consent.

The Olmec Calendar was fashioned, in large part, from a careful observation of the cycles of Venus. A calendar is an umbrella that you can gather a nation under to shield it from the torrential showers of individualism which scatters collective focus. Those who convince a nation what it will focus on determine how that nation is defined. They mold the soul of that nation.

The new umbrella is media. Like the calendar, media sets the pace and tone for the movement of human consciousness within the scope of space and time. The broad-nosed, big lipped brothers with the large stone heads gave us a template to run with. Where are our track shoes? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We’re standing in seven with our eyes on six. Thats beauty.
