(BALTIMORE – June 20, 2018) – Each and every single day the good Lord awakes me, I’m thinking … what can I share to inspire my people? What photo will joggle something in the brain? What image or video can I share that will help make the difference in someone’s life – something that will remove the shackles and set the captives free?
After all, the people of the darker hue are descendants of the first to populate the earth. And although Western History only reports that Columbus founded America, I am quite confident that many people already know the truth: Black people, Moors, Hebrew Israelites, The Lost Tribe, the Indigenous, the autochthonous, the natives, the Black Indians … were already here.
We’ve BEEN here! In Brazil; In Mexico; In Florida and Georgia; iin the Gullah Islands, and out in California: The people of the darker hue have BEEN here in what is now called the United States.
If we only knew the truth about our history and our greatness, we would be so far ahead of the game … like in Wakanda.
I have heard many stories and theories about our greatness before the arrival of the European. I am learning more and more everyday about this or that piece of the puzzle, like the story of Black Wall Streets … not only in Tulsa, but in countless other places across the US, like Allensworth in California, like Weeksville in Brooklyn, Seneca Village in Manhattan off of Central Park, East Baltimore, Jackson Ward in Richmond, Durham (North Carolina), Rosewood in Florida and some 25 to 50 communities in Oklahoma – to name a few.
There is so much hidden Black History that it will actually blow your mind, such as the Shrine of the Black Madonna across Europe and the 700 or so years of the Black African Moors’ domination of Europe up unto the beginning of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade.
Long story short: Although many Africans were brought to North America as slaves across the Atlantic, there were tens and hundreds of thousands of black folks already in the Americas long before any white man ever showed up.
Cognitive dissonance is “the state of having inconsistent thoughts, beliefs, or attitudes, especially as relating to behavi oral decisions and attitude change.” Some people have attempted to label us as something far less than who and what we really are. We are the descendants of kings and queens!
