A HISTORY OF RACISM AND TERRORISM, REBELLION AND OVERCOMING.
THE INVENTION AN APPLICATION OF RACISM
One of the most powerful, exciting and important books on the reasons for the present, past and future conditions of Blacks in the Americas, Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, Melanesia, Australia, Europe and the Far East has been written. The title suits perfectly to the historical facts outlined in the book about how racism and terror were used to reduce Blacks and other people, including some Europeans to slavery and bondage.
The book begins with the invasion of ancient Black India by a number of nomadic wanderers from Northern Europe/Central Asia, who spoke languages called "Aryan" tongues. These groups waged a long series of wars against the Blacks of India and after many centuries were able to subjugate the population and establish a system of racism called "varna" (color consciousness) based on religion. This system is called the "caste" system and still affects Black Untouchables and other Untouchables in South Asia to this very day.
The books details the struggles that led to the rise of Buddhism in South Asia and how Buddha, a member of the Sakya Clan and a native Indian fought and established a separate religious ideology from that of the caste system. The book looks at the work of many Dalits and others of India who have been victims of caste/racism and their past and present genetic, cultural and racial connections to present-day Africans, African-Americans and Blacks in the rest of Asia.
THE LACK OF RACISM DURING THE GREEK AND ROMAN PERIOD
It may shock some to realize that racism was not invented by the European/white nations that exist in Europe. To be specific, the first form of racism to enter Europe and be followed as a religion appeared during the 1700's to the 1800's when the Europeans were using the Bible to justify the enslavement of Blacks and many pseudo-sciences and racist theories were advanced. The Europeans during the Greek and Roman period 1000 B.C. to 400 A.D., did not have the type of putrid racist feelings against Blacks that came after the time of Shakespeare. In fact, many European cultures had been culturally influenced by Blacks. Greek, Roman and others borrowed heavily from Black culture.
Some of the Greek writers such as Herodotus describes the "Ethiopians" the term used for the People of Sudan and the rest of Africa, as being the "most handsome of men; the inventors of pomp and ceremony, laws," and culture. The Greeks quote the Egyptian priests as saying that the Greek Isles were inhabited and developed by Egyptians long before the Greeks arrived. In fact the first Greeks to adopt Egyptian ideas appear to be the Dorian Greeks who came from Central Asia between 1700 B.C. to 1500 B.C.
RACIST SEMITIC RELIGIOUS WRITINGS HOLY BOOKS
One of the main perpetrators of racism through the ages have been said to be religious writings that appear in the Bible and other religious texts. The "curse of Ham" myth found in Genesis is one of these writings that have been used to reduce Blacks to enslavement. This fable is used by many of those whose religions are influenced by the ancient Semitic religions. Yet, these writings are thought by many writers to be based on Semitic envy (see History of Racism) of the Black Egyptians and other Blacks in ancient times.
The very continuation of enslavement of Blacks in Sudan, Mauritania and attacks on Blacks in West Papua and Melanesia, or the callous disregard for Black people in East Africa is evidence of the type of philosophy that promotes religious racism against Blacks, yet, many Blacks have fallen for and continue to follow religions that continue to promote the enslavement and destruction of Blacks, rather than developing and promoting the traditional religions of Africans/Blacks.
SLAVERY AND REBELLION
African slavery on a wide scale began by the very same people practicing and promoting African slavery in Sudan and Mauritania today.
In the past, Africans did not unite to stop this evil and today nothing is being done. Yet, the total destruction of African civilization in Nubia-Kush, the destruction of great cities and centers of civilization the enslavement of men, women and children, the mixing and wiping out of the African identities of Africans in places like Sudan (the invader takes African woman and the child is not considered African is racist genocidal scheme, which is unacceptable to Africans whose children must claim the African grandfather's race and the African mother's race and not the race of a conqueror or violator) continues today in a continuing and systematic application of the old Semitic system of racism.
SLAVERY IN THE AMERICAS
The book, "A History of Racism and Terrorism, Rebellion and Overcoming," pub. by www.xlibris.com presents a detailed explanation of how slaves were created in the Americas through the application of brainwashing, violence, terror, and genocidal policies. The "Willie Lynch Letter to the Planters of Virginia," is discussed and broken down chapter by chapter. The effects of the techniques applied to creating mental slaves continue to exist to this day.
SLAVE REBELLIONS AND REVOLUTIONS
Hundreds of slave rebellions took place in the America from Canada to Argentina. Some of these rebellions, such as that of Nat Turner and Denmark Vesey were crushed. Others such as the Haitian Revolution, the rebellion of the Maroons of Jamaica and various Maroon peoples in Latin America were successful. In fact, some of the most effective forms of martial arts and military techniques (guerilla fighting) came from slave rebellions, where Africans were applying techniques of warfare that came from Africa. A large percentage of African slaves including women were captured in the wars in regions like Dahomey (Benin), Nigeria, Congo/Angola and the Sudan/Ethiopia region.
HOW BLACKS OVERCAME DESPITE RACISM AND JIM CROW
The book ends with the struggles of Blacks after slavery and the introduction of a new form of slavery called "Jim Crow." When added to "sharecropping," where Black tenant farmers were kept on the land as semi-slaves for decades, slavery in the South had only taken a different form. Yet, Blacks created their own schools, businesses and institutions as well as secret organizations and continued to exist Before the Civil Rights Era, the use of confinement of Blacks for any little "crime" was established all over the South in order to create another form of slavery. Today's "Three Strikes," and "Mandatory Minimums" is nothing new, but simply a continuation of the type of slavery-related system used to keep Blacks in perpetual confinement and under control in the South. In lands like Australia, Britain, Latin America, West Papua and North America, these genocidal laws are being used as a means of keeping Blacks at a disadvantage. In many lands, Blacks are retaliating through population expansion, establishing and making sure bodies like the United Nations enforce their rights and working to stop such racist laws.
SLAVERY TODAY AND WHY AFRICANISM MUST BE ESTABLISHED AND ENFORCED ALL OVER AFRICA:
THE THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS OF PAN-AFRICANS
The time has come for African leadership and the people to STOP THE RACIST AND RELIGIOUS IMPERIALISM OF THE SEMITES.
Any attempt to turn Africa into "Land of the Abeds," ('abed' being the racist Semitic term for Africans, including those who follow the Semitic religions; it means "slave.").
No African in their right mind, regardless of religion should accept this form of colonialism. Show the African people the love and respect that the Semites have for Black Africans when they violate, ravage and carry off our mothers, sisters and women. Where is the love when they destroy our villages, culture and commit extermination?
Semitic colonialism through religious imperialism is just as racist as European colonialism and South African apartheid. Are we Africans without our own ideas and culture that we have to sit back and allow others to dominate and destroy what has been ours for tens of thousands of years?
The time has come for an ideology based on the needs of the African people, African culture and traditions and African realities and spirituality. We should develop African religions and reject those that continue to teach that Blacks are to be slaves. No religions should take priority over African religions.
Chinese believe in Confucianism, Japanese in Shintoism, Indians in Hinduism, Europeans in Christianity, Semites believe in their own religions. WHAT DO AFRICANS BELIEVE IN?
WELL HERE IT IS. WE BELIEVE IN HONORING OUR ANCESTORS, PRESERVING OUR CULTURE AND ENSURING THE RIGHTS OF AFRICNS ARE RESPECTED AND LANDS OF AFRICANS REMAIN AFRICAN.
THAT IS CALLED AFRICANISM. In the case of lands like Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, and all the Black African lands, including the Blacks of Egypt, the idea that our ancestors created and built a great civilization in North Africa before the invasion of the Semites should be known and taught to those who need to know. Therefore, while others return to their religions as a means of applying their ideas and culture, IT IS TIME WE BLACK AFRICANS IN NORTH-EAST AFRICA FIND OUT WHO WE REALLY ARE AND RETURN TO OUR ROOTS CULTURE AND CIVILIZATION.
We are not Europeans or Semites. We are Black Africans and the core of Black civilization is the region from Egypt to Kenya. Both Kenya and Ethiopia is the original homeland of the Black race and the human race, for that matter. The world's religions began in Egypt, material civilization began in the area between south Egypt to South Sudan.
So, why would any African leader continue to allow their culture to be destroyed by the new type of imperialism and racial genocide that is being carried out on Blacks in Sudan and as far as Mauritania and West Papua. It is time to unite to stop it. The life of Black Africans fighting against Semitic occupation and religious imperialism in Sudan, is as important as the lives of those fighting against occupation and domination in the Middle East. Would the world accept the wiping out of two million Semites in the Middle East, as they have accepted the wiping out of two million Sudanese? There is no way that would be tolerated.
Blacks in the Americas, Europe, Christians and Africanists in the Americas and Africa do not and should not accept the attempt by Semites to re-enslave Africans and implement Semitic colonialism in any part of Africa.

A History of Racism and Terrorism, Rebellion and Overcoming clearly shows that terror and oppression as a means of imposing racism and cultural chauvinism based on religious beliefs continues today and is behind the present atmosphere of worldwide conflict today.
