“If a race has no history, it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated. ”
This post was a lot more in-depth than this, but after having it somehow 50% deleted, I figured I would repost the overall main point, and rant on other related issues on another post.
There are a few reasons I truly dislike Black History month. Until recently I had no idea how it was even founded, I’m ashamed to say.
Black men and women more than earned their place in American history books, both before 1776 and definitely after.
Black History happened in crucial ways, daily, and still they received no pay, no acknowledgement, no kindness or humane treatment. Fast forwarding to 2019 where we still are impacted by the actions of these men and women; one example being the White House and all of the surrounding district was built off of the backs -and brains- of Black men. (Info on this to be in an upcoming post)
Despite the impact and astonishing sacrifice, cruelties and inhumanity these people endured; despite what they did to build the structure desired by whites “in government”- there still has been not only no pay, but also no acknowledgement in public schools or by many others I can think of whom “teach history.”
(And yes, money payment is due. White people today; ok so you were not one of the enslavers… you are, however, reaping the benefits of an oppressive system merciful and preferring of whites; OPENLY, heartlessly. While, at the same time, trying to ensure your so called “place as victim” or playing the “denial card” … whatever way a white person goes if it is not in truth you are openly, knowingly allowing lies to be told, truth and history to be surprised and letting a community continue to struggle and suffer due to racism which is indeed very much, too much, alive in America. But I digress.)
And I haven’t even began on the ancient histories not often spoke of except in falsehood.
Such as, the history of truth which when we find in the amazing, breath taking ancient civilizations of Kemet/Egypt / African history. These people are the reason for everything we take for granted today from the 365 calendar to math and medicine and more. (More posts are to come soon on many, many things in respect to this as well!)
On to the point of this post, even though my last writing was far more informative I feel, I best get back on topic.
Though Black History month is not something I support, as noted I support an all year, truthful history, it began of noble means and the history is honorable.
I am ashamed to admit this is a piece of history I only recently learned.
The origins of what was a brave and wonderful proposal, especially in 1926, was created by Mr. Carter G. Woodson, along side the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History.
It was, at that time known as “Negro History Week” and was to be honored every year during the second week of February.
These weeks were not selected at random, instead planned as to include the birthdays of Frederick Douglass in the 14th as well as Abraham Lincoln on the 12th.
It was, of course, not met with much more than a rather lethargic response but it didn’t leave Carter disheartened; quiet the opposite.
It took relentless work and perseverance but it finally began to catch on, and finally, the ambition, and the hopes to share and honor Black History seemed to have succeeded.
It wasn’t until 1976 that American presidents began giving recognition to the cause, but after they acknowledged it as an issue of importance (no matter what the reason they really did it for) it became Black History month.
And so it was. Call me negative if desired but I am a realist; Black History month should not only be a year long study, additionally it should not be limited, as it is now, to slavery, segregation, the civil war, the Civil Rights Movement, riots, sit ins, and/or Dr. King.
Black History does not begin with slavery. With that in mind I hope you will go and do some real research on the truths being hidden from you…. or revisit this page at random to learn more truths they try so hard to hide, or even deny. Despite the proof & evidence to be shared…
That is what we are missing; culture! Pride !
The other day I made a video regarding a documentary I was watching. The documentary was about racism and segregation in America; as well we the punishment placed upon the Black community when the government(s) finally “desegregated” –
Teachers, who had been more than such prior but also almost like mothers to their students, were ripped of their jobs. Cultural values and teachings began to fade for Black students as they were plunged in head first to history lessons that involved only white heroes, where the people who built this country with -no payment but a lot; far too much; suffering- never went paid for or acknowledged.
The passion the women in this video had for going to school is astonishing to me. Now a days you can’t get kids to go to school or value education even if you try with all you have. The connection is clear, but I want to explore it more.
But before that; here is last nights video. I hope you are all well!

Finally, people are speaking the truth many of us who aren’t asleep knew from the moment that psycho decided he should be any form of government official. We are citizens of America right? Answer me this, then. As “Americans” is it not too much to do exactly what they say we are to do if this ever happens; this being a racist, sexist, fat, orange psychopathic tyrant.
I am ashamed to say I am American, I’ve been since I was 14 and saw how cops have a badge to kill innocent people; especially if those people are not white, and then walk away from the crime with the same bloody guns in their slimy, blood stained hands. If you’re not American and reading this, please know this government does NOT represent ALL of the people! I must post this because I’ve got a busy schedule however I also have announcements to share that will be propelling this site and new sites as well as upcoming events and talks, among other things. I have been away for far too long but it was worth it… My seeking, studying, and continuously searching the vast REAL knowledge most Americans are never taught and too many do not even want to hear and growing my spiritual connection by the blessings of our Afrikan Ancestors;…all of this has made me stronger in all regards and my purpose -though it was already known- will now be fulfilled. And that means my changing in ways that only hurt my purposes; one being, sharing knowledge.
More on that really soon. For now, here is what we all need to be using the government of America’s founding documents to rid ourselves from the police state and truancy of Trump. It DOES matter. We are going backwards; say what you will of President Obama, but he never tried to reverse American progress, well being or health care. He was harassed with hate and racism as his precious little princesses did/do. But President Obama, being a man with integrity and maturity -not to mention stable mind- didn’t go off the handle, even though he would have had more legit reason to be angry at the media and others for he had horrible comments and lies being spoken.
He let his actions speak. No one has to agree with the sickness of Syria and other countries; but as a whole… you can simply look at Obama in the eyes and then look into the eyes of Donald Trump…And the person whom is a man of value and an actual man.
While I’ll leave out -for now- what words I’d use to explain what Donald Trump is, I’ll start an upcoming posts topic by adding;
“…the person whom is a man of value and an actual man. Most people will know that I mean, of course, the missed President, Barack Obama. Trump is honestly a sorry and pathetic excuse and misrepresentation of what it means to be a “man.” He also is a horrific and a vile, disgusting, delirious joke of humans as a whole.
Trump has had his ‘power’ if you wanna call it that; but now it’s a position within the government… To support him is to support those he also has -or tries to have- in office… All whom are women haters, racist whites with lazy European ancestors who did not build Amerikkka, but sat and got fat while treating men, women and children of legal enslavement, abuses spoken and unspoken, violence and fear unknown…
Trump with Sessions and Pence alone are walking images of the overseers, of the legal/government officials that were hunting down, murdering, abusing, misusing, brain washing, stealing and raping Black human beings. Not forgetting, these Black men AND women are why we have the most iconic sites in America; not just Washington DC; not just the white house, but ALL OVER America. And they did it to stay alive.
How things are regarding cops, prison, school, jobs, community, life or death for being alive; life or death being a risk if you dare do something as simple as go for a walk to get skittles or if you have a Pokemon card in your 12 year old hand. (Former case)
More writing with citations soon. Take action; and if you have any action that needs a volunteer; please let me know.
“It will be us who makes America great again.”
This is a repost with my 2 cents about the evil I report and will continue to report on… Let me explain. The below case, for example, is not happy. It isn’t surprising, sadly. But I stand firmly with Malcolm X and will NOT ever turn away from the atrocities white racists do and get away with, still, daily. I share these things because I feel it is my responsibility to share. Because no one’s suffering should be ignored; BECAUSE WE SHOULD NOT GET INTO A MIND STATE OF ACCEPTING THIS SORT OF TREATMENT SO MUCH THAT IT BECOMES A TOPIC NO ONE DISCUSSES OR CARES ABOUT ANYMORE- A TOPIC OR SOCIAL ISSUE PEOPLE FEEL IS HOPELESS THUS IT GETS IGNORED. WE MUST NEVER GET TO THAT PLACE!
Honor him and I hope somehow, soon, the Black and Hispanic and awake whites and anyone else, will all unite and act in a way that gets positive change. But first gang violence needs to cease… Please put down the gun; or at least realize who your true enemy is. These same people who can do these sort of sick things, as seen below, be it another situation like his, or more by cops; the racist government and prison industry. And then we can’t forget the every day racist whites. Nor can we forget what has gone on and still goes on. Point? The people doing all that; before and after you were born, are the same people who on FBI orders brought guns and drugs to the community with the orders “divide and conquer”.
They are the threat to peace and humanity and equality. I wish I had some form of action or inspiring words to say regarding the dismissal of charges in yet another stomach churning hate crime against a Black man. I’ve spent so much time trying to figure out what to do; and of course I’m here to fight and speak against racism… But I want to start teaching TRUE history.
Quickly let me go over my new plans and the current video “lessons” or “series” I’m starting as it is the ground which the murders and violence sprouts from….
Yes slavery will be mentioned; but so well bravery and strength. Also, in regards to the time in history I’ll be “teaching” or sharing knowledge about, Black people are forgotten and if not forgotten, some historians have the nerve to say that white SERVANTS and Black SLAVES were treated the same, no racism involved in the START of slavery in the states. Oh, and the founding fathers and documents had nothing to do with maintaining slavery; why, they spoke against slavery!… *shakes head*…
In the upcoming videos I’ll expose the whites lies, and remove the smoke and mirror show they hide behind. It’s time to give credit to those who built this country; not just in regards to the buildings of the District of Columbia and other states, but also other workings that shape America, as we will see.
While the rich Europeans sat on their asses and “BOUGHT” HUMAN BEINGS to then work them to the verge of death (don’t give me that ‘some masters were actually nice to them’ BS. You cannot be moral and OWN a human unless it was some facade to break the enslaved free. These “masters” had no such intention.
Just like with Ancient Egypt, history is written by those who did minimal work at most, if that; by the two faced hypocrites who cared not for the inhumanity of slavery but instead the money- all while trying to play the victim of owning slaves. …. Yes you read that right; that will be explained in the video posted either tonight or in the morning.
Whites didn’t create this country. They did create the hate and oppressive racist laws and spread lies on a legal level trying to further legitimize their cruel, sick, sadistic actions. A lot of those laws are still in act to this day impacting disproportionately the non-white communities, especially the Black community. All that has been changed is amendments made which removed any reference to Black men and women, keeping control of “white supremacy” -that’s a quote- and so forth. All these things that built America from the white side, the evil side, still are infecting and poisoning this country to this day.
And how can anyone of us expect anything less? Police and prisons and the war on drugs and SO MANY MORE LAWS we all know about and know to be unjust were created early in “America’s early days”. You cannot expect anything rooted in evil to produce honesty and kindness; equality and remorse.
So I think it’s time we all set the record straight on these topics and so many more. They have hurt, slaughtered and so much more has been stolen from the people… But they then continue on down to even lower grounds, the lowest, and claim this country never engaged in slavery as bad as “some people make it”. Regarding the main topic of my first video “lessons” in history, they also then go on to take credit for all the work and accomplishments they not once worked at. Regarding documents and papers they had to lift a finger for knowledge of reading and writing is dangerous….
But now you and I read and write. Don’t waste it. Exploit it. Share knowledge, both the heartbreaking as well as the removal of FAKE history. Replace it with TRUE history… And share… Teach the children these truths; teach ourselves these truths….and refuse to believe or tolerate their thieving LIES!
My current plans and topics I’m going to start my lessons on in the video series I spoke of, all deals with racism and the evil history of it.I am working on a video about a Black child whom was slaughtered tragically…but he received no justice, just as the majority of cases- unless the victims white and the killers Black- show us. White privilege and double standards.
Finally, if any of you are the sort to say ” I can’t handle looking or hearing…____” the sick things that happened. I don’t enjoy it but I look; and so should everyone! I refuse to look away; I refuse to stay quiet; and I refuse to play the white supremacist little game when it comes to HISTORY – from Ancient Africa to modern Africa and other places- as well as the US and all the back breaking, soul destroying evils racists did; such as forced labor in the building of the entire District of Columbia and it doesn’t stop there. (Please make sure you join my YouTube channel; I’m going to make sure I set history straight as I can, as best I can, and I hope I make a difference even if just to ONE soul.)
This tragic and intentional murder –and especially the fact it is something they found not worthy of punishment!- is a direct link to those founding lies and “men” who were behaving behind closed doors not too differently as we’ll see. The roots flower the same hateful and evil ways for until we uproot and start over, these sort will continue to get away with being indescribably cruel and evil.
Unless someone else knows another way to change things… I’m all ears; I long for the better days and to see equality!!!….. But as of right now, the America of the “Founding fathers” continues on in the legacy of brutality, prejudices, violence and racism. Otherwise, there would be a deep outrage by the world and the killers would be punished. Instead….
Four prison guards who were allegedly involved in the death of Darren Rainey—a schizophrenic inmate at the Dade Correctional Institution who died in 2012 after being thrown into a scalding hot shower and left there for two hours as punishment—will not be charged. According to the Miami New Times, on Friday Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine…
Introduction video to a series of videos I’m making- these will be regarding Black history in terms of the founding of America and the building of all the crap so many whites claim to have accomplished – but didn’t. My goal is to spread awareness of TRUE knowledge; the tragic and good, and give acknowledgment to the history of those whom racist whites want people to forget or not know about.
Additionally, I want to expose the horrors that the White House and Washington DC did during these founding days, hidden by lies but now it’s time to expose with truth and proof. The evil shall be exposed, and the truth and those whom suffered shall be given the long overdue awareness racists try to hide… I want to note also these videos will include more than just physical matters… I hope I do this well; at least I know I am spreading truth and truthful knowledge is POWER!!
Today in 1965 we lost a legendary man, body and soul, a true revolutionist whom fought for the bettering of humanity and against racist white hate crimes against the Black community without apology-as it should be; as we should all be. I’ve placed the video above for a reason; while countless speeches made by Malcolm X are sadly still true to today and how things are, in this video he poses the question I wonder every single day with growing frustration at my own lack of understanding as to the WHY others, in great numbers, aren’t asking what Malcolm so brilliantly asks, frames and explains in the video I’m about to post and urge you with all I am to watch.
What is happening in America must not be taken before an American court. Just as police should not be taken before their fellow police officers or other law enforcement and/or court/legal systems where they are known personally.
We see where doing both of those things gets us, and common sense should suggest that would happen anyway. So where do we go? As Malcolm X says we should instead take the issue of VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS (not CIVIL but HUMAN RIGHTS) to a system larger; the UN, for example; nothing will ever change. And he has been proven right by time… So what are we waiting for? It is only 9 minutes and some spare seconds of your time: listen to what he says, honor him with at least that much, on the anniversary of his death, I ask you. Listen and think about what he says both for him then but also, look at how perfect that speech is to be given in America today, 2017. Video follows.
This week in Newark, NJ, there is a free, weekly, on-going, open to anyone group called REAL TALK THURSDAYS meeting up as done every Thursday, for an hour, to discuss matters of importance but not typically discussed. This weeks meeting will be the beautiful soul and man, Malcolm X & his importance to the Black Liberation Movement.
When I return back home I will be attending religiously; however for the time I am EXTREMELY sad –especially this week!!!- that I will be missing out on this weeks discussion. Malcolm X is a man I love and am very passionate about; he is a person history must not forget yet he is a person I don’t recall ever being in a text book in school.
This is an wonderful opportunity for the community to get together and shed the chains of racism and lies; to build unity within the community! Having these educational, intellectual conversation with others within the community leads to RE-education. RE-educate the mind, share your knowledge, discuss and learn more knowledge for yourself…Gain self love and empowerment for, this is key to building a stronger community and a stronger community is key to freedom...
Want to attend? Read the post below written by Bashir Akinyele, one of the chairmen of this much needed, finally REAL, place to go to discuss issues and topics that MATTER but are all too often “left out” or “forgotten”… Bashir Akinyele says of REAL TALK THURSDAYS:
“This program is an opportunity to discuss solutions to the problems affecting African Americans, Latino Americans, people of color, women, the youth, and humanity.”
