African American GOLDEN LEGACY

A PICTURE SPEAKS A THOUSAND WORDS...

Black People in the Americas - FIRST


European explorers were not the first to find the Americas.  When Columbus landed in the Americas -- Black Indians met him. Africans had been to the Americas and traded with the so-called Indians long before the Europeans thought of it. In fact, at one time in history, Africa was the "New York" of the world, where all new inventions, products, and concepts were found.

                                                                       

IN ADDITION...AFRICANS WERE TRAVELING AROUND THE WORLD
...long before 1492 when Columbus sailed the ocean blue.


 

WHO WERE THE FIRST AMERICANS?

Massive sculptures of the heads of typical Negritic Africans were carved in the region of South Mexico where the Olmec civilization flourished. Some of these massive heads of basalt contain the cornrow hairstyle common among West African Blacks, as well as the kinky coiled hair common among at least 70 percent of all Negritic people, (the other proportion being the Dravidian Black race of India and the Black Australoids of Australia and South Asia).

Don't be afflicted with 'historical amnesia.'

"There is a debt owed to the Negro people which America can never repay. At least then, they must make amends."

~Quote by Sojourner Truth

Africans were often treated like cattle during the crossing. On the slave ships, people were stuffed between decks in spaces too low for standing. The heat was often unbearable, and the air nearly unbreathable. Women were often used sexually. Men were often chained in pairs, shackled wrist to wrist or ankle to ankle. People were crowded together, usually forced to lie on their backs with their heads between the legs of others. This meant they often had to lie in each other's feces, urine, and, in the case of dysentery, even blood. In such cramped quarters, diseases such as smallpox and yellow fever spread like wildfire. The diseased were sometimes thrown overboard to prevent wholesale epidemics. Because a small crew had to control so many, cruel measures such as iron muzzles and whippings were used to control slaves.

The actual number of Black men, women, and children who were snatched (kidnapped) from Africa and taken in slave ships to the Americas is not accurately known.  Many writers, scholars, and historians vary in their estimates,  but there is no doubt that the numbers kidnapped from African soil run in the millions. Many of these African slaves had their own culture and religion --  some were Muslims  --  and  most were "Hebrews."

MANY OF WHOM WERE ALSO of the LOST TRIBES OF ISRAEL.

HIDDEN HISTORY...

 

 

 History of Africans among the Native American Indians

 

Escaping the WHITE MAN'S RACISM: 

                

                      Photo: Slaves escaping via UNDERGROUND RAILROAD

Millions of  "Black Americans" are of mixed race.   Many famous Americans, such as: ROSA PARKS, L.L. Cool J, and James Earl Jones (and many others) are of Indian heritage and part Black African (Negro)...due to the co-mingling and inter-marrying from times when the slaves escaped the cruel plantations and White slave masters -- and the Indians took them in and inter-married with them.

AFRICA is the same place from which they captured and killed millions of the same NEGRO slaves that built the U.S.A.  It was the original home of human civilization.  Thousands of years ago, outsiders raided Africa and robbed her of gold, diamonds, ivory, herbs & spices (and much more)...and also initiated cruel slave-trade enterprises.

In addition, we must remember that thousands of years before the White Europeans came to the Americas,  there were DARK-SKINNED Indians already there.  Long before Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492...the Asians and Africans had met and inter-married.  Many of the so-called Indians who migrated to the Americas were of dark-skin because of this reason. 

MILLIONS OF YEARS AGO...the continents were more closely situated...and it was called PANAGEA. The First Americans were the Washutaw Muurs-- who were Black Africans akin to the Moors.  They were in America before anyone arrived...including the "Asian Indians" who migrated to the Americas before Columbus.

 PLUS --- Many so-called "Negroes" or BLACK AMERICANS are bi-racial or of mixed race because back in the days of slavery-- WHITE MEN would RAPE the Black women -- force them to have sex.  There are many documented cases of this...and some would have children with these Black WOMEN and then put their own bi-racial children (mulattoes) out on the plantation as slaves.

 

WHAT MANNER OF MAN IS THIS ...????

            

   JIM CROW LAWS...segregation, lynchings, cross burnings, and all the other racist treatment applied to the MULATTOES too...

WHEN THERE WAS A  LYNCHING PARTY ...they did not ask the victim-- "...what is your tribe"  or "are you bi-racial"   --- NOT.  They hung people who only "appeared to be a negro...."

However,  white people considered these "bi-racial" people as BLACK -- as escaped SLAVES...as "Negroes" -- no matter what the mix.

Based upon the Rules and Laws made in the Nation by White folks...

"The One Drop Rule" made it so:

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/jefferson/mixed/onedrop.html

There was never any question about it... UNLESS the person's appearance would permit him/her to PASS FOR WHITE.

And many did pass for White...including some of our past Governors, and other high level officials who hid their true BLACK ANCESTRY.  Why?  Take a guess.

WERE OFFICIALLY CLASSIFIED AS HAVING A "MENTAL ILLNESS"...?

LYNCHINGS were done by vigilante groups
that used it to 'punish' Black people
for petty,  ridiculous reasons.






Even professional people -- doctors, educators, etc.
incorporated various forms of "white racism" into
their philosophies, practices, policies, etc.

AFRO INDIANS

 

 History of Africans among the Native American Indians

 

Runaway African slaves often found new homes in American Indian villages. Even though classified as "slaves" in White society,  many African Americans became part of an INDIAN family group, and many intermarried with Native Americans - thus many later became classified as Black Indians.  This is a unique history between African (black) slaves and Native American Indians which developed in many U. S. communities. 

 

 

"Despite every European effort to keep one dark people from assisting the other, the two races began to blend on a vast scale. Black Indians were apparent everywhere if one bothered to look. Thomas Jefferson, for example, found among the Mattaponies of his Virginia, "more negro than Indian blood in them." Another eyewitness reported Virginia's Gingaskin reservation had become "largely African." Peter Kalm, whose famous diary described a visit to the British colonies in 1750, took note of many Africans living with Indians, with marriage and children the normal result."

 

        ~ QUOTE FROM: William Loren Katz's BLACK INDIANS: A HIDDEN HERITAGE  ( New York: Atheneum, 1986 )

When more than 60,000 Native Americans were removed from their homes during the 1830s by U.S. Federal troops from the southeastern states of the United States - they were forced Westward to Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska. This was called the "Trail of Tears."

In some cases,  Blacks and Indians joined together in acts of rebellion to massacre White plantation owners and White soldiers. Many of these Native American tribes had previously embraced and either helped or kept numerous African Americans as slaves. African Americans and Native Americans created a mixed cultural blend depending upon the specific tribal group.

The Seminoles--

 A fierce, proud tribe of Florida, let neither three wars with the

United States Army or the harsh Everglade swamps defeat them.

 

The Florida Seminole Nation is one of the Five Civilized Nations.  They also accepted runaway slaves into their tribe. The Seminole Nation fought slavers, Indians and the U.S. government to keep their ancestral lands and farms, which delayed the annexation of Florida. The United States government invited their leaders Chief Coacoochee (Wild Cat) and Chief Osceola, the great medicine man, to take part in peace talks under a flag of truce.  When the Seminole leaders arrived at the site of the negotiations they were promptly arrested.  The Seminole Nation was marched to Indian Territory on what is now known as the "Trail of Tears", where hundreds of men, women and children were marched to their deaths. 

Chief Osceola, Courtesy National Archives

Because of attacks from slavers and Creek Indians, the majority of the Seminoles and Seminole Negroes moved into Mexico.  At the death of Chief Wild Cat, the Seminoles left Mexico for United States. Under the leadership of their black Seminole Chief John Horse, the Seminole Negroes stayed in Mexico away from slavery. Other Seminole, Creek and Cherokee Negroes joined them.

The Seminoles occupied the Southeastern United States for 12,000 years.

They were finally granted U.S. citizenship in 1934.

Nomad Winterhawk - Ntsistsista (Butterfly Clan) - is a Black Indian of Cheyenne/Apache-Senegal African-Irish-Algonquin heritage. He has written a book honoring Black Indians and the 500 Year Heritage: 'The Black Indian Cultural Heritage' - designed to empower other Black Indians and inspire other individuals who have lost contact with their cultural roots.

The focus of the book is on the value of honoring life, and the issues that confront Black Indians in their daily, individual as well as collective lives. As interesting alternatives to the violence we have around us, it provides valuable images of life passages, in the context of community enhanced ritual mechanisms.

WHO WERE THE FIRST AMERICANS?

 

 


 

DOCUMENTARY FILM:

 

              

"Black Indians: An American Story," explores the issue of racial identity among Native and African Americans.
 
This in-depth documentary examines the coalescence of these two groups in American history.
 
Discounted, and often ignored by mainstream America, these minority peoples have often shared a common past.
 
However, with their heritage ignored and their contributions denied they are all but invisible at the dawn of the new
millennium.

It was a black and white world in the early days of the Republic and little or no thought was given to people of mixed race, especially if they looked "black."  "We were told... 'if you could pass for white, that's who you'd be; if not, it was usually better to be identified as black than Indian,"... recalls Executive Producer Steven Heape. "It was this kind of thinking that later led to 'pencil genocide'--changing one's race on a birth certificate to fit the skin color of the child."
 

 


 
 

    
 
VIRGINIA GOVERNOR ISSUES PROCLAMATION TO
"CELEBRATE THE CONFEDERACY"
 
That was the hot news in the headlines in April 2010.
 
However,  that Governor came under fire for this action -- as he
somehow forgot to mention the most important issue surrounding
 the Civil War and the Confederacy:  SLAVERY. 
 
CELEBRATE THE TREASONIST CONFEDERATES....but not a whimper or a tear for the slaves !
 
After numerous verbal attacks upon his "proclamation" -- this Governor apologized:
 
 
 
President Obama also joined the chorus of those who think that such a celebration
(without mentioning slavery) is unacceptable.
 
 
It is very curious how the SOUTHERN CONFEDERATE folks can
fabricate ways of omitting the issue of slavery.  It is hypocritical to claim
that they were "upset" over the taxes imposed by the north on their riches.
 
Slavery was the main reason that they had all the wealth.
The main economy of the south was BLACK SLAVES and the free labor.
 
 
SOME CRAZED WHITE FOLKS are on TV -- whining about the loss of some
Confederate soldiers -- but NOT ON TEAR for the millions of Africans that they
killed  --- maimed, lynched or totally messed over for hundreds of years.
 
In short, the whole "CELEBRATE THE CONFEDERACY"  ...mess is a pile of bull pucky.
 
WE MUST ALSO BE AWARE THAT THESE TYPES OF ACTIONS BY THOSE
WHO SUPPORT THE CONFEDERACY ARE NOT DONE IN ISOLATION.
 
The fanatics in the "Tea Party Movement" are tied to neo-Confederates and much
of the philosophy and values that they are spewing are closely tied to those of
the Conferates.  The founder of the TEA PARTY programs -- RON PAUL has been
long involved with neo-Confederates, the John Birch Society,  and other similar
 right wing "white power" groups.
 



Conservatives have called President Obama all sorts of foul names--
* SOCIALIST
* COMMUNIST
* ZIONIST
* FASCIST...
* TERRORIST....and others.

 
And then you see Glenn Beck whining about what some "communists" did
to hurt people in another country.  But he neglects to tell his audience about
how the FOUNDING FATHERS were slave owners. 
 
 BECK, HANNITY, LIMBAUGH (and other right wing nuts) have been telling lies 
-- that "Obama is a socialist ....communist....tyrant...."  -- (and worse)
 
 
PLUS  --  those at FOX NEWS NOISE have been  whining  about
"Obama is trying to re-distribute the wealth...."  --
 
BUT THEY FAIL TO MENTION --- THAT IS ALL THAT SLAVERY WAS....
 
WHITE FOLKS REDISTRIBUTED THE WEALTH TO THEMSELVES
on the backs of BLACK SLAVES. THEY WERE NOT UPSET over imposing
a horrific, foul and brutal SLAVERY upon innocent Africans and getting all that
FREE LABOR.
 
WHAT WAS THE CONFEDERACY?

Confederacy, name commonly given to the Confederate States of America (1861–65), the government established by the Southern states of the United States after their secession from the Union.   They created their own money and their own flag.  The Confederate States formed and army that fought against the Union in the CIVIL WAR.... for the preservation of the evil institution of enslaving Black people.  The CONFEDERATE army was defeated.

DEATH THREATS...
 
AND WORSE -- we have been experiencing outrageous attacks and threats upon
the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT and other members of Congress -- coming from
these same TEA PARTY fanatics.
 
 
 
 
ALTHOUGH AT LEAST HALF OF ALL ADULTS DO NOT
PAY ANY TAXES...and MANY BIG CORPORATIONS ARE
 NOT PAYING MUCH EITHER...these TEA PARTY people
 are using "high taxes" as a smoke-screen for their complaints.
 
A report shows that most taxes are paid by a small percentage of citizens....
 
 
 
Of course,  Limbaugh has twisted this issue into something else --
as if it were Obama's fault:
 
 
SO WHAT ARE THE TEA PARTY FANATICS COMPLAINING ABOUT?????
They claim to be upset about "too many taxes"  -- or "high taxes..."
 
And yet -- the one big issue that costs this nation trillion$
-- WAR --
is barely mentioned by the "tea party" fanatics --not put on any
protest signs...and not part of their "platform."  All they focus on is
scaring the citizens about the "motives of a Black President."

FOUNDING FATHER SLAVE-MASTERS

 

Since the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT took office in 2009 -- there have been

several protests -- based upon the old 1773 TEA PARTY REBELLION....

These protesters promote propaganda that consists mainly of blaming almost

all the financial problems, debt and tax problems on President Obama.

                     

 
A FOUL LEGACY
--  SINS OF THE FOUNDING FATHERS...
 
         
 
While many right-wing pundents and "Tea Party" activists
are promoting the supposed "wisdom of our founding fathers"--
remember -- some of those "fathers" were slave-owners.
 
Pundents and politicians, such as:  GLENN BECK,  SEAN
 HANNITY, RUSH LIMBAUGH,  AND RON PAUL...constantly
 talk about-- "upholding the Constitution"
or they say we should  "go back to the Constitution."
 
 
 
 
 
These protesters pretend that the "FOUNDING FATHERS"
were almost saintly (untouchable)  holy men, who did great noble deeds. 
 
They constantly mention the CONSTITUTION as if it were
the BIBLE.  They make little or no mention of the fact that
 in 1773-1976 -- THE FOUNDERS WERE SLAVE OWNERS....
 
However, little or no mention of that big fat important detail
is offered by these TEA PARTY pundents.
 
 In their protests,  they carry signs that degrade and
slander Pres. Obama. They call him all kinds of derogatory names: 
(on signs)  "socialist....communist....muslim terrorist" etc.
 
 
Some falsely claim the worst -- that Obama is trying to enslave
white people. But if anyone dare mention the ugly history of slave
ownership among the  FOUNDING FATHERS ----- OOOOh -- STOP THE PRESSES !!!!!
 
Truly ---  they may have a fight on their hands!
These TEA PARTIERS don't want to hear anything
bad about their "overly-glorified" FOUNDING FATHERS.......
 
 
 
FOUNDING FATHERS WHO OWNED SLAVES:
* George Washington
* Thomas Jefferson
* Ben Franklin
* James Madison   ..........and others 
 (only a few FOUNDERS did not own slaves)
 
 
Although many have tried to rationalize and excuse these true
 events of American History -- frankly there is no good excuse
for the horrible institution of slavery that tarnishes the history of the U.S.A.
 
HOW CAN SLAVE-OWNERS CLAIM TO BE "FREEDOM FIGHTERS" ???
 
 
HOW COULD AMERICA'S FOUNDERS write so much about
 "freedom...equality, abolishing tyranny"  ...etc.
-- and hold slaves...that they did not treat well ?????
 
Were they running a big time scam?
 
WHY NOT MENTION AND TEACH ABOUT THE SLAVES
WHO ACTUALLY BUILT THE COUNTRY...BUILT ALMOST
EVERYTHING THAT WE NOW SEE AND USE?
 
SLAVES BUILT THE WHITE HOUSE:
 
 
 
 
There is nothing "godly or holy" about being a cruel slave-master.
 
The institution of slavery was nothing but a
CRUEL FORM OF RE-DISTRIBUTING THE
WEALTH ....that which these right-wing
Tea Partiers claim to be protesting.
(making White plantation owners rich)
 
SLAVE-MASTERS were some of the worst people who ever
walked on the face of the Earth.
 
IT IS AN ISSUE THAT MANY PEOPLE DEBATE ABOUT EVEN TODAY.
 
 
 
Listen to Nina Simone sing about the conditions:
 
 
 
SLAVERY WAS A HORRIBLE INSTITUTION...not a kind favor to Blacks.
 
  
The FOUNDERS even put a clause in the original national CONSTITUTION ...proclaiming Black slaves as 3/5 of human. It has been reported by researchers that Washington and Jefferson had children by Black slave women -- and still did not seek to fight against this horrible institution, which put their own children in bondage.

Mitakuye oyasin!

We are all related!

It isn't too late. We still have time to recreate and change the value system of the present. We must! Survival will depend on it. Our Earth is our original mother. She is in deep labor now. There will be a new birth soon! The old value system will suffer and die. It cannot survive as our mother earth strains under the pressure put on her. She will not let man kill her.

The First Nation's Peoples had a value system. There were only four commandments from the Great Spirits:

1. Respect Mother Earth
2. Respect the Great Spirit
3. Respect our fellow man and woman
4. Respect for individual freedom

We must all stand together as a force of love. Be united NOW. There is only one way. Communication. Knowledge. Arm yourself with truth, love and perseverence. Extend your family. Join with others in giving. We are all related. People of the earth take back your heritage. I am not speaking of skin color or religion. Our heritage is this earth... Our heritage is also extended beyond this earth into the heavens where the spirit once lived before our birth into this world. You are bound to both.

THE TEN INDIAN COMMANDMENTS!

* Treat the Earth and all that dwell thereon with respect!


* Remain close to the Great Spirit.


* Show great respect for your fellow beings.


* Work together for the benefit of all mankind!


* Give assistance and kindness wherever needed.


* Do what you know to be right.


* Look after the well-being of mind and body.


* Dedicate a share of your efforts to the greater good.


* Be truthful and honest at all times.


*Take full responsiblity for your actions.....

 

FULL MOON PRAYER

We thank the Moon and the stars, who give us their light when the Sun retires.... We thank the Great Spirit, incarnation of all kindness, who directs all things for the good of Its children."

from an Iroquois prayer
