WE WERE ONCE UNIFIED IN OUR STRUGGLE FOR FREEDOM

For some reason we have been made to forget that we as a people were once united in the same cause. We have forgotten about the first African Emperor of Rome Septimius Severus, an emperor so feared that just the mention of him going to war with a nation forced that nation to surrender. We have forgotten about the Punic and Hannibalic wars and the North African chiefs Jumba and Massinissa, two of the greatest generals who had ever lived. T

They were generals who fought side by side with the Moors, Italians, Greeks, Phoenicians, Romans, Vandals, Arabs, and French, in eighth century Africa. As we crossed the Atlantic, we discovered the new world. But in this Brave New World we would have to learn to live by a different set of rules. Those who should rule decided that the rules we lived by in the old world would no longer apply in the new. They had decided that they would come up with an idea that would not unite the masses as in the days of old but invent a concept that would socialize them. Why did they need to do this? Why change the way things had been done for thousands of years?

 

“In 1675 Bacons rebellion demonstrated that poor whites and poor blacks could be united in a cause. This was a great fear of the ruling class—what would prevent the poor from uniting to fight them? This fear hastened the transition to racial slavery.”

You see, it isn’t just that we as Americans have amnesia when it comes to our history, but that we were also made to forget our history. The ruling class want you to forget that in the old world it was the slaves black and white who played a part in the overthrow of empires.

“Thus Aleric’s army of forty thousand included many fugitive slaves, many of them Goths in origin.”This is the main reason why the slaves in America had such strict laws, where in the old world you could purchase your freedom. They were determined not to let history repeat itself.

“Hume, Linnaeus, Blumenbach were developing new theories to explain human difference. Legislators in Virginia were building a legal system in which Africans and

their descendents were property not people creating a new concept of slavery or race.”

Remember that Roman slaves were European and African and you were property until you could buy your freedom. In America you were born a slave. In the Dark ages of Europe and in Visogothic Spain, slaves were the result of debt, punishment, poverty-selling themselves or their children into bondage for a better life or slavery for food from merchants. But what was needed was to keep the preliterate in a delusional state of mind by continually reinforcing the concept of race, a human invention.

“The ideological justification of colonial conquest rested on the obliteration of past knowledge and understanding, ethnological perspective, and Arab voyagers. To appreciate this we needn’t go as far back as the legendary King Balthazar, one of the three visitors to Bethlehem during the Nativity. Philippe the I of France and William the Conqueror of England were, in fact, petty nobles compared with great King Tunka Menin of Ghana, who could deploy 40,000 archers in battle: Three centuries later, what European Monarch could match the economic clout of the Mansa of Mali, Kanka Musa, who flooded the market with enough gold to cause a twenty percent devaluation in the Egyptian dinar.”

How did they do it? How did they sell the idea that one race was superior to another?

“Johann Friedrich Blumenbach said in 1775 that racial biases in their beliefs tainted science. Letting their feelings get in the way of their thinking (reason) and the biases in his beliefs already confirmed what many Europeans already felt. It was easy to overlook his switch from thinking or feeling, because what he said sounded so good and felt so right. Blumenbach’s theory of race swept away all previous explanations of human difference and gave a new justification for ancient prejudices. He spoke in the voice of science, not the pride of the Sumerians, Greeks, or Romans or the belief in being special to the God of the Jews, Christians and Muslims.

But all these deeper layers of feeling are there in his theory. Those like us, those we find beautiful, are superior. Those unlike us, those we find alien are inferior. Because “race” is presented as science, it silences objections based on feeling. And yet the idea itself is so powerful because it confirms our ancient sense that those who look different are alien, enemies, what the Munduruku call “Pariwat.”

What this all boils down to is what we choose to believe or not to believe about one another. That choice will determine how we will relate to one another for generations to come. So what will it be? Hate… or love?

“So like Pavlovs concept of “conditional reflex” where a bell is rung to signal a dog that dinner is being served. We have been conditioned to hate at the very mention of race.”

“The main purpose behind an ideology is to offer either change in society or adherence to a set of ideals where conformity already exist; through a normative thought process. Ideologies are systems of abstract thought applied to public matters and thus make this concept central to politics.”
