The Birth of a Nation


“The mouse is silent while laboring, but when the baby is conceived, she cries.” African Proverb


Shem Hotep ("I go in peace").


Gus (left), played by white actor Walter Long in blackface, represents the threat of the menacing black race, as does Gen. Thade (right), played by white actor Tim Roth in Apeface.

According to D.W. Griffith’s The Birth of a Nation (1915), Abraham Lincoln was wrong. Damn wrong! The propagandistic film, originally entitled The Clansman, presents "the Negro race" as a threat to white society. A subtitle in the film reads:

According to D.W. Griffith’s The Birth of a Nation (1915), Abraham Lincoln was wrong. Damn wrong! The propagandistic film, originally entitled The Clansman, presents "the Negro race" as a threat to white society. A subtitle in the film reads:

"The Ku Klux Klan, the organization that saved the South from the anarchy of black rule."

Although the film doesn’t explicitly vilify President Lincoln (his desire to protect the South after the Civil War is viewed favorably), it nonetheless places the blame squarely on his shoulders for disrupting the tranquillity of white dominance. The film suggests that liberating the black race was not only wrong but dangerous. Blacks, no longer fettered by white mastery, pose a threat to civilization with their lewd, primitive behavior.

The menace of black savagery is best seen when Gus, played by white actor Walter Long in blackface, pursues Flora through the forest. The visual cuts back and forth between Gus, the black aggressor, and Flora, the innocent white victim, not only heightens the film’s drama but arouses feelings of white vulnerability.

In Tim Burton’s Planet of the Apes, this threatening chase through the woods is symbolically continued as a group of white humans flee a pack of terrifying apes. The humans are no match for these athletic simians because, to put it frankly, white men can’t jump.

Thus begins the long awaited update of The Birth of a Nation, a film that the Ku Klux Klan still uses to promote their organization. Whereas Birth of a Nation justifies the oppression of black people in the South, Planet of the Apes reveals the consequences of alleviating such oppression. If we do not control these "savage Negroes," say both of the films, we are going to be a "helpless white minority" running for our lives!

The original Planet of Apes (1968) was an obvious allegory about race and nuclear arms. The underlying message condemned racism by reversing the historical relationship between whites and blacks. Like the current film, white humans were the mistreated slaves, and dark simians were the masters. When the original film was released, the black community was understandably distraught over the ape-African comparison, an insidious racist analogy to begin with. The derogatory association not only deepened stereotypes of the African-American, but increased fears of an eventual "Negro" takeover.

In White Man’s Burden (1995), writer and director Desmond Nakano similarly presents an alternative America where the blacks are powerful and privileged, and the whites are uneducated and unemployed. While Nakano never apes the African-American community, he nevertheless presents a threatening world to racists who are incapable of processing the what-if-it-was-the-other-way-around scenario. Because successful blacks actually do exist, as do struggling whites, the film merely incites their anger. "Damn, look what’s happening to America! The white man is getting screwed. If we don’t do something, the black man is going to take over our whole, fucking planet!"

Burton’s Planet of the Apes fuels this exact kind of racial defensiveness. The connection between the domineering apes and the growing black (and ethnic) culture in America is striking. Almost every human represented in the film is played by a white actor: an insignificant black man ends up getting killed, and a submissive Asian woman is virtually invisible. If humanity is represented as being white in the film, then apeness is understood as being colored. The black man and Asian woman represent minorities that have chosen to blend into whiteness: cultural sell-outs. And, according to the film, they too will suffer under ape domination.

The message of the film is clear: rule the planet. This aggressive tagline, seen in all of the film’s advertising, is a clarion call for white society to regain control of civilization. If white people do not fight back, minorities will endanger white supremacy and threaten white culture. Either white people will rule the planet or the savages will.

But how can whites rule?

In one of the most subversive and misunderstood scenes of the summer, Charlton Heston, the president of the NRA (and the original white captain in the 1968 version of Planet of the Apes), plays the dying father of General Thade, the ruthless chimp on a mission to massacre every human being on the planet. Together for the last time, Thade’s father reveals to his son the secret of the white man’s previous mastery over the simians. He asks Thade to break a mysterious container in his room. When Thade smashes the container on the ground, he uncovers a gun!

In what has been considered a wry, political joke, Heston goes on to condemn the gun as a destructive force capable of wiping out their kind. But this is not an anti-gun stance, as many have claimed. Indeed, it is just the opposite. Heston, as Thade’s father, represents the apes. He is NOT on the side of the white man. Thus the warning that Heston’s simian character gives is, in reality, the key to white superiority. As long as white people have guns, as long as they are the masters of destructive technology, they will rule the planet!

The film’s ending (as well as human history) demonstrates that this is in fact true.

The power shifts on the side of the white man when Leo Davidson (Mark Wahlberg) recovers his gun: only to have it knocked away later by the sympathetic Ari (Helena Bonham Carter). Damn liberal! However, Davidson is able to concoct an even more explosive weapon out of a tank full of gas. When a mob of vicious apes come rushing toward the innocent white community: KABOOM!!!! Fire (a Klan favorite) engulfs the attacking apes. This deadly explosion re-ignites the white community. A battle between the simians and humans ensues. The humans, lacking the necessary weapons, are both outnumbered and outmatched. When, suddenly, from out of the sky, the original space monkey returns!

The fighting immediately ceases, and the apes begin to gather around the landing spacecraft. They believe that the space monkey is their long-awaited Messiah (everyone knows how religious those apes are). But the space monkey turns out to be subservient to Davidson, the white alpha male. Davidson goes on to tell the simian community that their so-called Messiah was a murderer and that their genesis was a travesty. In a time when life was more peaceful, lectures Davidson, the humans were masters over the apes until the apes rebelled and turned all mean and nasty.

Sound familiar?

After Davidson thoroughly demeans everything that the simians have held sacred, the apes are unexplainably apologetic. Instead of hailing Semos a revolutionary for liberating them from a caged life, they humbly decide to live with the white humans in peace. Thade however makes one more attempt to kill Davidson. He seizes the gun, shifting the power once again to the side of the apes, foreshadowing what will happen in the future. Although Davidson is able to outwit him technologically, encapsulating him in a bulletproof casing, it is only a temporary peace. Davidson, who Ari makes clear is the new white Messiah, having replaced the silly monkey myth, heads back home in Christ-like style, ascending majestically into the sky.

Davidson eventually makes it to Earth, where he crash lands in the heart of Washington, D.C., skidding uncontrollably into the Lincoln Memorial. When Davidson gets out, he is shocked to see that the face of Lincoln has been replaced with the face of General Thade! What the hell? When Davidson turns around, the police, the press, and a host of other simians have surrounded him. The damn apes have taken over earth!

Davidson raises his hand in full surrender.

Of course, the ending makes absolutely no sense unless it is understood as a warning to white society. In the end, Lincoln and General Thade are one in the same; they both have contributed to the dominance of the black man in America. Peace is not possible. Who will protect the "helpless white minority"?

"The Ku Klux Klan, the organization that saved the planet from the anarchy of black rule."

Ugh, hide the sheets.

A Mother`s Love Determines How!


“Be glad you are unknown, for when you are known, you would wish you weren't.” African Proverb


Shem Hotep ("I go in peace").


"If a race has no history, if it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated."
Dr. Carter G. Woodson 1875-1950

A Mother`s Love Determines How!

A mother`s love determines how we love ourselves and others. There is no sky we`ll ever see not lit by that first love. Stripped of love, the universe would drive us mad with pain; But we are born into a world
That greets our cries with joy. How much I owe you for the kiss that told me who I was! The greatest gift--a love of life-- lay laughing in your eyes. Because of you my world still has the soft grace of your smile; And every wind of fortune bears the scent of your caress.

Remembering `Precious Doe`
Precious Doe was shy of her fourth birthday when she died. Officers were searching for a missing elderly man when they found her body in a wooded area near a church April 28, 2001. Her head, wrapped in a trash bag, was found nearby a few days later. Police, unable to identify the child, named her Precious Doe.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Hundreds of mourners gathered Saturday, May 7, 2005 for a memorial service to remember the little girl once known only as "Precious Doe," She was dubbed "Precious Doe" while authorities sought her identity and her killers. Police identified the child as Erica Michelle Marie Green, who was nearly 4, and charged her mother and her mother`s husband with murder.

(Erica Michelle Marie Green, may you be at peace, here is a poem for you)
There`s a land that I have heard about, so faracross the sea. To have you on, my dreamland would be like heaven to me. We`ll get our breakfast from the tree. We`ll get our honey from the bees. We`ll take a ride on the waterfalls, and all the glories, we`ll have them all.
And we`ll live together on that dreamland, and have so much fun.
Oh, what a time that will be,
Oh yes, wait and see. We`ll count the stars up in the sky....And surely we`ll never die.

What in the blue hell is going on?
I was in denial about some brother`s being on the down low until I was at a friend’s party last month. She informed me that 2 brothers that were also at the party were on the down low together, and both were married to female.

JL King`s On The Down Low: A Journey into the Lives of "Straight" Black Men who Sleep with Men.

(Mrs. Browder was just out to get paid.) I read this book along with my bookclub and we were totally disappointed with the stories that were told by Mrs. Browder, she never fulfilled any topic for which she was talking about. It was almost as if she was reading on the down low and responding to that book without giving any true feelings or emotions of her own. The book offered no survival skills for women in this situation. My book club members have all returned the books to the store for a full refund.


Hands off cell phones, while driving in my home town of Chicago. (ABOUT TIME)

Multitasking motorists who yak away on their cell phones will be required to use a hands-free device while driving in Chicago -- even if they`re just passing through -- under an ordinance that sneaked through the City Council. Beginning July 8, 2005 Chicago will become the nation`s largest city to prohibit motorists from using cell phones without a hands-free device, which allows the driver to keep both hands on the wheel. Only three exceptions will be permitted: law enforcement officers and operators of emergency vehicles "on duty and acting in their official capacities," motorists calling 911 or other emergency numbers, and drivers using their cell phones while parked.

Everybody else using a cell phone while driving will face a $50 fine. If the violation happens "at the time of a traffic accident," the fine will quadruple -- to $200.

Leonard Jeffries When the first models of the Statue of Liberty were built, they were an Afrikan woman holding the chains of enslavement in her hand and at her feet.

A Lesson in Black History: The Statue of Liberty It is hard to believe that after my many years of schooling (secondary and post) the following facts about the Statue of Liberty were never taught.

Hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of people have visited the Statue of Liberty over the years but yet I`m unable to find one person who knows the true history behind the Statue...amazing!

Yes, amazing that so much important Black history (such as this) is hidden from us (Black and White). What makes this even worse is the fact that the current twist on history perpetuates and promotes white supremacy at the expense of Black Pride!

The Statue of Liberty was originally a Black woman. But, as memory serves,it was because the model was Black. In a book called "The Journey of The Songhai People," as Dr. Jim Haskins (a member of the National Education Advisory Committee of the Liberty-Ellis Island Committee, professor of English at the University of Florida, and prolific Black author) points out that is what stimulated the original idea for that 151 foot statue in the harbor. He says that the idea for the creation of the statue initially was to acknowledge the part that Black soldiers played in the ending of Black African Bondage in the United States. Abolitionist Society, the gift of a Statue of Liberty in recognition of the fact that Black soldiers won the Civil War in the United States. It was widely known then that it was Black soldiers who played the pivotal role in winning the war, and this gift would be a tribute to their prowess.

Is Condoleezza Rice President Bush`s Pet Negro? (HELL YEAH)

One African cultural attribute that lives on in this country’s Black community is the unlimited willingness of the village to attempt to defend and protect its own. Back in 1984, personalities as diverse as Vanessa Williams and Louis Farrakhan became targets of the larger society for wildly different reasons. Williams, as the first Black Miss America, was dethroned because explicit nude photographs of her were made public. Farrakhan was universally attacked because of allegations of anti-Semitism. Notwithstanding the controversies, America’s Africans opened their arms and embraced these celebrities, providing them with enough love and support for each to re-group and move on to face new challenges.

Historically, there have been no articulated rules for this practice.
Our willingness to embrace our prodigal sons and daughters is perhaps one of the most endearing qualities of African people. However, our survival depends upon our ability to distinguish members of the village who have erred from those (like Clarence Thomas) who have made a conscious decision to do everything possible to destroy the village. As Condoleezza Rice basks in the world’s spotlight, we have been faced yet again with the issue of whether to defend a controversial African.

Back in January, Rice jumped on the George Bush/Tony Blair bandwagon by characterizing Zimbabwe,Cuba, Belarus, Iran, Burma and North Korea as "outposts of tyranny." Zimbabwe’s


President Robert Mugabe responded by saying: "That girl born out of the slave ancestry, who should know from the history of slavery in America, from the present situation of Blacks in America, that the white man is not a friend. She says Zimbabwe is one of the five or six outposts of tyranny. Ah, well, she has got to echo her master’s voice. The white man is the slave master to her." Mugabe went on to point out that in the aftermath of his country’s war of liberation, the new government allowed the former brutal, racist white Prime Minister Ian Smith to not only keep his life, but to live in comfort, participate in political life, and routinely criticize the government. "How many [tyrannical] countries would have done what we did?" Mugabe asked. More than a few Blacks in America have gone on record as having taken great offense at Mugabe’s remarks. Once again, they have instinctively perceived that one of our own has been disrespected, and it is the duty of the village to rally to her defense.

As we consider this latest incident, we cannot allow the questions of whether Mugabe’s style was appropriate, or whether his comments are valid, to become the issue. The real issue is whether Rice is deserving of our community’s support regardless of how, and by whom she might be attacked now, or in the future. In general, is she simply confused about her racial obligations, while retaining her potential for redemption, or has she crossed the line and become a conscious and willing agent of the enemies of our community?

Rice has, for the most part, avoided making comments that specifically concern racial matters. With respect to reparations, she did comment that: "In order for us to get along [in America’s diverse society, some of us] will have to forget [about what happened in the past]." When affirmative action was considered by the Supreme Court, her "support" for the practice was not even lukewarm. Such views alone are not enough to make Rice an "enemy." There are many Africans in this country who share Rice’s opinions on these matters, and sincerely believe that such are in our collective best interest. Even Rice has spoken of her African ancestors with reverence and love. To understand the danger that Rice poses, it is more useful to examine how she approaches her "job."

Bush policies for her community. The war in Iraq is not a "race issue" in the usual sense, but Rice should know that the consequences of that aggression include the deaths of many Black soldiers, and the intensification of military recruiting in Black communities. Putting aside the issue of Zimbabwe, she should know that while she is attacking Cuba as an "outpost of tyranny," that tiny island has sent perhaps more doctors to sent perhaps more doctors to troubled regions of Africa than any other country. It also has allowed young Black people from the U.S. to train in its medical schools free of charge and return to this country to provide health care to under-served communities.

Rice’s crime is that she is so eager to please her boss that she not only carries out his plans, but she also initiates and orchestrates projects that further his objectives, even if Africans are unnecessarily harmed in the process. The relationship between Bush and Rice may not be as between master and slave, as Mugabe suggests. Rather, it may be more akin to the relationship between master and pet. Bush says "fetch" and Rice runs as fast as she can. Bush says "sic ‘em" and Rice doesn’t pause, even if the identified victim is from her community. Should our village protect such a person? In the same way that the world assumes a pet’s master will care for his animal, perhaps we are best served by allowing Bush to take care of his pet Negro while we Africans focus on the more important task of struggling for our liberation.

Edward Frazier stood solidly by his argument that conspicuous consumption, wish fulfillment, and a world of make-believe marked the black middle class. (Black Bourgeoisie)

Great Flood Myths!


“Got a stone but didn't get a nut to crack, got a nut but didn't get a stone to crack it with.” African Proverb


Shem Hotep ("I go in peace").



Great Flood Myths!

20 Problems with Noah and a Global Flood

1.) All that water from a global flood could not have
come from mere rain alone, not even in 40 days. So how did it get there?

2.) Where did all the water from a global flood GO?
Water has to go SOMEWHERE?

3.) Most animals live in ecological niches suited to their
needs. They would starve to death or simply die from
the elements, were they to leave to go sit on a wooden ark.
How do these animals yet exist on our world? A global flood
should have WIPED them out!

4.) The logistics involved in gathering all those animals
in the time given defies mathematics.

5.) All those animals could not have been fed, housed,
sheltered, etc. (taking into account pest control, special
diets, etc.). Most would have starved to death on the ark.

6.) Many animals (including certain forms of fish alive today,
coral alive today, cave dwelling arthropods, insects alive today,
etc.) should have died out from a global flood as they could not
have survived the elements or within a large wooden sailing vessel.

7.) The geological evidence from ice core samples to sea floor
deposits indicate that there was no global flood in Earth history.
A global flood should have left evidence in all of these things.

8.) The polar ice caps of today would not have survived
a global flood, as they would have broken off and been
sent floating away by an Earth covering torrent of water.

9.) Evidence of a global flood is absent in tree ring dating.

10.) Geological eras are consistent worldwide and would
not be if a global flood occurred.

11.) A global flood would have wreaked havoc on the fossil
record. The fact that the fossil record remains arranged in
a manner consistent with evolution negates a global flood.

12.) Many forms of vegetation in existence today should
have been crushed/destroyed by a global flood.

13.) Diseases which exist today should have been wiped
out by a global flood, unless Noah`s entire crew were a
pestilence infested bunch unheard of in human history.

14.) The shattered and devastated post-flood global
eco-system would have been unable to support most life.
Herbivores would have starved to death...and the predators
with them.

15.) With only "two of their kind" in existence, predators would
have devoured certain animals into extinction (eat the male or
female more zebras...). And even at this
rate, they (the predators) would have starved to death.

16.) Coming full circle, if gathering the animals was an impossible
task for Noah and his crew---those animals getting back to their
present locales was even more impossible. The shattered and new
world created by a global flood would have made for extremely
hazardous navigation. And the vast majority of animals would never
have made it to *wherever* it is they were trying to get to.
Furthermore,as the flood would have had to have occurred only
within the past few thousand years, it is mathematically impossible
for animals to have traveled, ate, conceived, etc. and gotten to
all their present ecological niches. In other words, had a global
flood occurred Koalas of today may have *still* been en route to
Australia---if the tigers of Asia didn`t eat them in a last-ditch
desperate search for food.

17.) The human population, dwindled down to Noah and
company, would have found it *impossible* to rebound
to its present numbers in the event of a global flood. We
could NEVER have reached 6 billion today if Noah and his family
were all that lived on the Earth only a few thousand years ago.

18.) Human adaptation, to allow for our genetic diversity,
could not have occurred in the short time from Noah`s
global flood. Genetics COMPLETELY cancels out any
chance of a mass extinction of most humans in the last
5 to 6 thousand years.

19.) Human "civilization" and culture would be shellshocked
from the devastation of a global flood. Unless Noah and his
progeny were multi-geniuses on everything from architecture
to medicine, information and knowledge collected from the
pre-flood human era would have been lost forever. Noah`s
sons and their progeny would have been starting over from
scratch. All the languages, arts, the pyramids, various religions,
modes of cultures you see today could not have come about
in a mere few thousand years from one family.

20.) Insects such as ants, termites and bees are social animals
that exist in complex interaction. One of each kind of an ant or
termite would result in their extinction. One would need to gather
entire colonies complete with Queen, drones, workers, etc., thus
negating Noah's flood ideology

Wanted children crying from the Backbones of their fathers.


“You don't need a light to see someone you know intimately at night.” African Proverb


Shem Hotep ("I go in peace").


Wanted children crying from the Backbones of their fathers. Wanted children, longing for the Bosom of their mothers.

Now didn`t the creator created the earth? And to the waters did it gave birth. It divided the waters from the land. Rivers for land and seas for sand. Then said it, let there be fight. And it made the darkness bright. Greater lights to rule by day Lesser tights to rule by night. Nothing or no one can change them Adjust or even rearrange them, These creations were here from the beginning so accept them for what they`re worth for all good thing in life are free. Like liberty for you and for me As the freedom of a raging storm Let the little children be born.
And so creator created woman and man. According to its plan. All creatures both great and small And in pairs it create them all. To woman and man it gave all dominion Over all creatures that live on creation to multiply and replenish the earth by coming together and so give birth. So who are you to try them, price them and sell them? Who are you to slave them and to kill them before them born? Who are you to hunt them down? Run them down and gun them down? Who are you to Judge them and to Put them to shame and scorn. Wanted children, crying from the Backbone of their fathers. Wanted children longing for the Bosom of their mothers.

Gun-Slinging Robots Headed For Combat.

The rain is turning to snow on a blustery January morning, and all the men gathered in a parking lot here surely would prefer to be inside. But the weather couldn`t matter less to the robotic sharpshooter they are here to watch as it splashes through puddles, the barrel of its machine gun pointing the way.

The Army is preparing to send 18 of these remote-controlled robotic warriors to fight in Iraq beginning in March or April. Made by a small Massachusetts company, the SWORDS, short for Special Weapons Observation Reconnaissance Detection Systems, will be the first armed robotic vehicles to see combat.

The monkey speaks his mind.

Three monkeys sat on a coconut tree Discussing things has they are said to be. Said one to the other, now listen you two there is a certain rumor that cant be true, that man descended from our noble race, The very idea is a big disgrace. No monkey ever deserted his wife Nor her baby and ruin her life, The monkey speaks his mind.

And you never known a mother monkey To leave her baby causing it to plunk. Nor pass them on one to another till they scarcely knew who was their mother, the monkey speaks his mind. And another thing you will never see A monkey build a fence around a coconut tree, and let all the coconuts go to waist forbidding all other monkeys to come and taste. Now if I build a fence around a tree, starvation will cause you to steal from me, the monkey speaks his mind.

Here is another thing a monkey won’t do, go out at night and get in a fight. Or use a gun a club or a knife To take another monkey’s life. Yes man descended the worthless bum, But my god brothers from us he did not come, the monkey speaks his mind.
